6 of 15

By the 1970s, the film market was virtually non-existent due to competition from television and worthy competitors to Toei and Mushi appeared, including Telecom, Tokyo Movie Shinsha and Nippon. Suddenly, many young animators were given carte blanche to do what they wanted, which resulted in a great deal of experimentation. The subject matter moved more and more into the realm of sci-fi and adventure than ever before, a stellar example being the amazingly titled Science Ninja Team Gatchaman.
