This remake is also not even close to being a rerun of the 1974 show. There is just too much different to consider that. I've heard this called the best remake ever as it improves on the original rather than dumbs it down to make it flashy...
That pretty much sums up my take on Yamato 2199
; and it's honestly why I enjoy it so much (while still being a fan of the original 1973 version too.)
