Gatchaman Access [J] Nihon Columbia 1995

Thic cd-rom contains various puzzle, trivia and arcade-style games. It's based on originally a Japanese anime series that first aired in 1972. A new threat appears all over the world in the form of the terrorist group known as the Galactor. To combat the forces of Galactor, well-renowned scientist Kouzaburou Nanbu unleashes the Science Ninja Team Gatchaman, a team of five young heroes skilled in the art of ninjutsu and dressed in unique bird-like costumes. In 1978, when game show producer Sandy Frank licensed Kagaku Ninjatai Gatchaman, he took 85 of the 105 episodes and rebadged the series Battle of the Planets to capitalize on the '70s sci-fi craze (all thanks to 1977's Star Wars). To meet U.S. TV standards, Sandy Frank had nearly all of the series' most violent parts edited out. To fill in the gaps, Hanna-Barbera was commissioned to produce new animated footage featuring 7-Zark-7, the team's mascot robot and the show's narrator. When BOTP stopped airing in reruns in the mid-1980s, Sandy Frank collaborated with Ted Turner in revamping the series and renamed it G-Force: Guardians of Space. Like BOTP, G-Force ran for 85 episodes, only that BOTP's 7-Zark-7 footage was omitted and replaced by original footage previously deleted by Sandy Frank. G-Force was superior to BOTP in terms of interpreting the original Gatchaman series in English, but suffered from a lackluster dub and a horrible disco soundtrack.
