Design

In the OVA series, the characters' designs and ages were also changed, along with other elements, in the process of "updating" the series for modern audiences:

*Ken, who had long hair in the original series, was given short hair.
*Joe was redesigned with more of a "bad boy" image, given a tattoo, and made a smoker. His car was also updated to a Shelby Cobra.
*Jun, who originally had long green hair, has short brown hair in the OVA. She is also a lot more physically developed, and works as an assistant manager and swimming instructor at a hotel, and had also worked as a model in the past.
*Jinpei was given more of a "street kid" look, while his position on the team became "hacker".
*Ryu was now the oldest at 25 (as opposed to 17) and his hair was changed to a blonde and purple sort of mohawk.
*The GodPhoenix was also redesigned, and appears to be larger than the original.
*The Red Impulse squadron was only three members in the original series, while in the OVA continuity, there are more members. [ [http://www.ex.org/2.6/19-anime_gatchaman.html Science Ninja Team: Gatchaman ] ]
