Oh well, I'm nearly 50 and every time I see this thread bump I start to hear the theme song in my head. It's such an infectious series...

The trailer for Chapter 4 (Episodes 11-14) was released today:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ctmO-z08LdM

Looks like plenty of action this time around.

Also Gamilon warships engaging Comet Empire warships somewhere on their frontier.
Plus Gamlon subspace dimensional submarine attack on Yamato.


That Gamilas got all the really good older male actors.
Man, this next batch of episodes looks great.
Already Pre-ordered the 4th Bluray disc (with english subtitles) from CD Japan about a day after receiving Bluray disc 3 back on Nov. 30, 2012.

Really looking forward to the Feb, 22, 2013 release date (they're really good about shipping as soon as it's released in Japan); just wish is could be sooner.
Random question - I don't suppose the commentaries are subbed on those discs?

They are not.

Only the episodes themselves are subtitled in English. Everything else is just in Japanese.

Which is a shame. If we don't get a subbed American release, then heres hoping someone will at least post a transcript online.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Watched the first few episodes of this finally - I really dig it. The computer animation is actually really slick and the story update changes so far have been solid. Good to see a classic get such great treatment.

Most of the licensors don't bother with the extras anyway.

But, it makes sense that they didn't bother subbing the commentaries and whatever extra stuff may be on the sets I suppose.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Information that is coming out later (a ship scale chart that probably won't be out for a month) suggests that Dommel's flagship is super huge. More so than I expected. Like nearly twice as long as Yamato.

He is also getting his saucer shaped SMITE ship later in the series.

We have still not seen the Battle Carrier redesign.

I am wondering what happens to his fleet. In the original he was just stripped of his command due to failure and the lose of Balan, yet his flagship and fleet were as far as we know, untouched by Yamato. Yet when he confronts them again, instead of 3,000 warships, he has five.

While I'd love one as well (assuming they kept to the script they have for the English subtitles on the region free Blurays as much as they can - as it's well done so far); I honestly wouldn't expect anything such as that in the near future (say 1 - 3 years)

[If I thought that would be the case; and we'd get dubbed Blurays released directly in the U.S.; I wouldn't be direct ordering from japan at a cost (with shipping) of about $106.00 U.S. a disc. )

It'll be at least a year after the show wraps BD release in Japan.

Upon investigation of the materials about the SMITE ship, I found something. The SMITE ship is the detachable bridge structure of Dommel's flagship. This indicates to me that he'll lose his flagship in combat with Yamato (along with a large part of his fleet), possibly because of the action at Balan. He gets home, is given another chance. Has what is left of his flagship fitted with the SMITE device and heads out with the remains of his fleet to engage Yamato one more time.

The 10 minute preview for episode 11 will be out December 28th or so depending on how the distribution outside Japan (Bandai Channel is region locked if I recall).

Maybe the Comet Empire trashed his flagship in revenge for screwing up their ominous doom vibe by kicking their asses
