The Gatchaman Universe

Dr.Nambu was an agent of the International Space Organisation, a special agency which worked for the United Nations, protecting the Earth from threats from within and without. Nambu became aware of the machinations of a covert agency calling itself Gallacter, and came to believe they posed a danger to the entire world. Preparing for the inevitable day when they became a public menace, he gathered a group of youths, training and equipping them to become a force capable of confronting Gallacter in open combat.

Sure enough, around a decade later, Gallacter revealed itself, unleashing a gigantic mechanical Turtle monster. Nambu's team, the Kagatu Ninjatai, also unveiled themselves, and managed to destroy this creation, but the danger of the sinister agency still loomed large.
