Re: Space Battleship Yamamoto: The Movie

The Yamato/Musashi's 18" guns were not as effective as they should have been. The shells were optimized to travel well through water. (The theory being that a short would hit the opponent's ship below the armor belt and do more damage). The Iowa's has functional radar fire controls so they could more likely score a hit before the Yamato's optical sights had a solution.

Needless to say this is an old argument. Probably the fight would go to who made the first hit.

Bismark was far inferior to both. Basically a WW1 design, armor optimized for relatively close ranges fights like Jutland.

Hope it makes it stateside to a theater we can get too. My son is really into Yamato and Starblazers, he'll get a kick out of this -- so will daddy.

It looks dorkier in live action than it does in the source material.

Whereas the costumes somehow look a little less dorky...

You should check it out, Dennis.
Other than old stuff from my childhood like Astro Boy and Gigantor, I find anime unwatchable. The everyone-looks-like-a-child-except-for-the-odd-ones-who-are-ridiculous-caricatures character design grates on me.

Re Dennis Post 20: Yes, they do. I'm surprised by how...military...their live action counterparts look...costume wise, and yet are still very faithful to the animated style.

Re: Space Battleship Yamamoto: The Movie

I for one believe that is you reboot Starblazers and turn it in to the live action series i would could well. Remove the cartoon camp and nonsense, make it notch darker and keep alot of the visual elements and unique scifi concepts close to the original. I would love to see a live action full cgi Yamato vs. the Comet empire myself!

Which leaves us with the problem of the Yamato looking like this today:



Nothing some handy space-glue couldn't fix in a few minutes, I guess.

it looks like whatever it needs to be.

I agree, especially about the costumes. I never thought that they'd go with the arrow on the front of the uniforms, but they did, and it looks fine. If you didn't know that the cartoon had the arrows, you wouldn't even notice.

When are Japanese people going to stop making movies like Space Battleship Yamato?

Why shouldn't they? They have as much right as Americans do to make big budget sci-fi movies-the more, the merrier, I say.

This actually looks pretty good. I say that without ever having seen an episode of the animated version, though I've seen lots of images from it.
I watched the dubbed, serialized US version when I was a kid and was amazed at how sophisticated it was. This movie looks fantastic.
