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.
FYI - The released a new Space battleship Yamato anime film in Japan very recently (12/12/09):

One link is the redone opening theme; the second link is a promo bit they did prior to the release of the film. Since Space Cruiser Yamato was what got me into anime in highschool back in 1978 (I saw the compilation film where they KEPT the original names and story, and then later the Starblazers U.S. dub version of Quest for Iscandar) - but I have to say, I still love the Japanese version of the opening theme to this day.

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.
he probably thinks bollywood shouldn't exist either.
It's a joke.

I just went to Youtube to hear the original Yamato opening, imagine my surprise to find that it's actually sung the same way as Star Blazers.

I wish the DVD's weren't so expensive, $130 is rather steep.

You are right about the DVDs. I know the starblazer website occasionally has deals on the sets so you might want to check there.

Yeah, same tune different words. It's awesome, tho. Nowadays, it's kinda the unofficial anthem of the Japanese Navy. They actually play it for official events and such.

Theme songs for their cartoons are a pretty big deal. Singers actually perform them at concerts:

Re: Space Battleship Yamamoto: The Movie

se keeplein mind, if my English is not so good. The friend in industry pointed to me to this discussion. Moreover, I have not got angry such for a long time. We to whom you reason that we (Japanese) are not good cartoonists, and ? KI and we do not learn how to pull now worsen you. By mistake, it so dislikes a foreigner that this is not believed, and is a blind patriotism principle and bigotry, hubris. By the way, I am almost speaking to the map and the marine smallness animal. Getting to know that such ignorant people exist in the world reduces my impression about North America the top more. By the way, your President is foolish. Moreover, Florida is made spoilt. In Japan, it is the tradition which can be proud of our animation. Moreover, we have our style and style which differenings. It proposes that you take back I; insults it is [ insults ] an insult to suggest that we cannot pull. It does not have work by the New World Order. Please do not insult our culture and our drawing. Miyazaki is Kami. He can pull a Œy‘Å American better than you. They to which you, an American (your Disney movie), and people resemble rubber all animated [ to the existing excess ] and are unreal. There is "an emperor's new groove (New Groove)."You insulted the amount of cultural larges of mine and me. Please cancel what you said. Otherwise, other things in animation industry of Japan will hear it about this. Probably even Miyazaki is him himself.

Wow.

Dude, relax, it's a taste thing. Dennis doesn't like anime, the style (or at least the stereotype, since all anime doesn't look the same). He wasn't slamming the whole of Japanese culture, or even anime itself. Just said it wasn't his thing.

Least I assume that's what you were talking about since it's kinda hard to tell. And if I got your position wrong, Dennis, please correct me.

Me, I love anime, but the idea that someone saying that it's not his thing would inspire a post like the above...

...is kinda funny.

Yeah, calm down. Not everybody can like Japanese animation. Personally I love it, but I understand there are different tastes.

One thing I agree. Miyazaki kami desu.

The images of the Yamato come up through the ice I thnk show just how animation has come since original was produced. While it could of been done by hand it would of probably been cost prohibitive.

Also point on the original - did they actually rebuilt the Yamato or was it used as tempate/cover? I seem to recall what was the wreck lying keel down on the what used to be the seafloor then the space going vessel blasting through.

Or am I wrong and what appeared to be the wreck the cover?

^^ Yamato breaking through the ice is epic! I had my volume up too loud which made it especially so.

Oh no, not Miyazaki! You'd better run for it Dennis. A 70 year old man will be coming to your house to beat you up soon.

Jeez, a guy posted he doesn't like Japanese cartoons. No reason to take it so personally.

Anyway, I've never seen Yamamoto before, but this film does look pretty cool. I'll have to check out the anime.
