I cannot wait to see how this turns out. I hope it is as entertaining as the live action Yatterman movie

I have really high hopes. Which could be a bad thing.

I would be all over this, but I really hope they keep the classic design aesthetic. Other re-imaginings of other Tatsunoko shows such as Casshern and Time Bokan haven't been so great.

Casshern is one of the worst things to happen to anime. Ever.
