I have to agree with this one. There is a certain...Yaoi... pretty-boy softness to this new Desslar that does not invoke the pure masculinity and bad-ass that we've come to love from the original.
Why shouldn't a pretty and soft looking villain not just be as masculine and bad-ass the original?

The sad truth is that as much as I love Yamato and other works by Leiji Matsumoto getting people interested in a 40 year old anime is very difficult.

True enough. The dated animation, theres apparently only one woman on board, and the slighty dodgy science don't help either.

I'm usually not a big remake fan either. but it looks like their taking great pains to be respectful of the original work.
It isn't just Yuki.

There's at least five.

I think this opening for a Yamato-game still looks the best:

They didn't change the theme song. Nice. Makes the English dub that much easier. Again.

I think Americans can bear the thought of a Yamato instead of a Argo saving the Earth.

Indeed. Its a long-time anime meme that the girlier an opponent, the more powerful they are.

And if they start throwing cherry/rose petals around, run!

Yeah, thats still my all-time favortie Yamato vid, and the one that got me thinking "Damn, Yamato would make an epic cgi series".

Nice. Though I wish the new version was just a little more energetic.
And man, whoever ripped the original opening sped it up just a bit too much.

And about time too. Thanks for the link!

And thank goodness the doc isn't quite as much of a mole man anymore.

I'd cross the street to avoid the original just by looks alone. The other I might cross the street to talk to until I realized it's a dude and quickly walk away.

You forgot to add the part where he runs his hand through his hair and then.mine...

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Wow, they really are trying to duplicate the original. They're even retaining the skin coloring mistake from the early Gamilus characters.

Totally wrong. He would have ordered one of his Generals to come up with a silly and overly complicated plan to eliminate him.

Probably involving a fleet of ships, mirrors, and a giant space amoeba.

Wow, that's honestly one decision I do not agree with.
