When Hajime Ichinose was chosen as a member of the new G-Crew, her viewpoint wasn’t initially welcomed – both by the in-universe cast and members of the viewing audience. She was enigmatic, communicated poorly with her teammates, and – for some – appeared to represent an all-encompassing love of modernization and social media to the detriment of tradition. While insight has shown that the latter is not the case, Hajime purposeful tackling of the dusty cobwebbed corners of superherodom introduced many of the G-Crew to the modern age. Through the simple use of social media, she tore down many societal preconceptions, allowing gatchamen and the average human to work side-by-side for a greater cause.

The new heroine of Gatchaman Crowds insight is energetic above all else. She springs out of bed in the morning, bounces down the stairs, and never seems to walk anywhere, choosing to run instead. She cannot calm down long enough to do her morning exercises properly, and when chastised by her grandfather, she huffs, “I’m exhaling properly!” rather than changing her own behavior.

All energy, all emotion, and all hot-headed rookie, Tsubasa Misudachi is all Red Ranger.
