Was a big fan of the live action movie actually. Yes some of the changes are a bit jarring at first, but to me they made sense.
Making Gamilus into bugs sucked the drama out of the film. What was good about the TV series was that Gamilus looked human, this effected the crew. It made it difficult to fight an enemy similar to them.

Making them bugs was just computer game shoot-em up crap.
It's not entirely clear what they were, but I don't think they were "bugs". They had the ability to scuttle around, but were sort of bipedal and could run like humans. The novelization calls them "Gamilasborgs". They may have been an artificial race created as host bodies for the crystalline Gamilas life form.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Well, with Japanese filmmakers tendency to completely change stories between the film any tv versions of shows (See Macross and Arrivederci Yamato) I was actually pleased at how well they stuck to the original storyline.
Honestly, Dessler/Deslock is a great character, and I don't think the film could have done him justice with only the few brief scenes the aliens were given in the movie. And turning over 15 minutes of the story to the Gamilas would have really hurt the plot. They made the right choice imo to keep the emphasis on the humans.

Thats all I'm sayin'.

I thought more people would have been upset about the ending.

Trivia: The voice of the Gamilas leader from the ending of the film was actually done by Desslers original voice actor. Plus look carefully at the crystaline humanoid figure that appears on the bridge. The profile looks very familiar.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Space battleship yamato was what got m in to Anime way back when. I suppose this is going to hit the same type of sitaution the recent Live Action film did in the U.S. (basically, we'll never see an official dubbed or subbed release)

I'd LOVE to b wrong tjhough as it really does look like they are keeping the same basic feel and while using miodern animation techniques are really trying to preserve the overall look and feel of the original Yamato series, which is is BIG win in my book.

I'd LOVE to get the Blue Rays with a dubbed or subbed English language track; or see this distributred to the U.S. in some form.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

So it's only going to be available legitimately subtitled?

Sorry, but I find subtitles annoying.

I'll wait and hope for a legit dub version.

Though the trailer did look good.

Is the LA movie available dubbed?

They're talking about the disc for the Japanese market. This just means the people who prefer subtitled versions won't have to settle for an inferior product from a US distributor.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

I take it that's a "no" to all my questions then?

Is HG's business office still being a PITA about keeping everything but Robotech out of the US market?

That's one thing about HG that just burns...the dirty business dealing that's kept a lot of product out of US distribution chains.

Harmony Gold has absolutely nothing to do with Yamato or Star Blazers. The only thing HG blocks is anything Macross.

Someone posted a 10 minute preview of the first episode (which was aired as a promotion in Japan on the Bandai channel):

Wow I missed this...another version of Yamato? First the animated movie and live action one, now this?

Edit: Just saw the 10 minute clip....very detailed mechanical design!
