Chapter 4 ordered. It come out in a day or so. I should get my copy by the middle of next week.

Amazon.jp price seems "reasonable" at about $86 with shipping. ($64 for the Blu-ray with $22 shipping to the US).
They (CD Japan) shipped mine back on the 21st (that's the U.S. date - it was 2/22 in Japan) -- and since I have package tracking -- atm, its being processed through U.S. Customs. I'll probably have it by Tues. or Wed. of this week.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Mine came early, arriving around the middle of Monday.

Watched it this evening. A very good set of episodes. Though it asks more questions than it answers (it answers a lot of quetions, but just added a whole bunch more to the pile).

The episodes are trying to convince me that this verson is better than the original. I'm not quite arguing with them anymore, but there are several plots going on that need resolving aside from the plots in the original show. And it looks like they will have time to resolve most of those plots. One plot I can tell is a setup for the future and probably won't resolve in this series. That will just be a matter on if they decide to make more after Yamato 2199.

I just watched all 4 episodes myself last night; and other than them showing combat with the Comet Empire (who were the main enemies in the second original Yamato series); I didn't see them add any plot lines that couldn't be resolved in the remaining 12 episodes (I'm assuming we're slated to get a full 26 like the original had.)

And I agree with you in that I REALLY like how they are re-telliing the original story; yet still adding completely new (but logical) nuances and expanding on the original (in a good way).

Some of the stuff I've enjoyed (protected by spoiler code for anyone who may want to view the episodes in whatever form they can get them :











I'm really starting to hate the fact we have to wait months between new disc releases.

Hrm, would you mind posting a bit of a summary of what happens in each of the episodes broadly?

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

So these episodes....are they going to broadcast them on TV for the TV run, or are they just going to pick up where these OVAs left off for the TV show? Because I've only been able to locate the first 4 episodes of this at the usual places and I'm wondering if I need to step up my efforts to find them before the show starts airing in a month or two.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

The TV broadcast will start at the beginning and should continue on for all 26 episodes by September or October.

The TV version should catchup with the OVAs in September for the last four episodes if the release dates are similar to how they have been up to now.

Also I'm fairly certain up to episode 10 can be found in places. Episode 11-14 of course just came out, but they will likely show up someplace in the next month or so if I know uploaders habits well enough.

The Anime starts airing on April 7th at 5pm in Japan.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Okay, cool, it will probably be easier to find too, once it's televised, which is usually the case.

It's already easy to find. Just too damned expensive! Once it's televised, I would say that it will probably be cheaper to find, though.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

I'd rather "try before I buy" in case I end up not liking it. Not as likely to happen in this case, but I have had bad experiences with other anime. Usually that means legal streams or Netflix though, I've been trying to get away from those other options.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

The new trailer for Chaper 5 should be out early tomorrow on youtube (placed there for the production committee). it think it is going to be 90 seconds long rather than the 60 second version they showed in the theaters last weekend (which no one has seen yet outside theater goers).

They say the are focusing on the battle aspects this time.

Wonder if it's finally time for the obligatory Yamato third Bridge module destruction scene (with crew aboard) in this next batch of episodes?

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Maybe. Though now it has a sort of critical roll. From what the producers have said, that's basically the ship's gravity systems and shield generator. Losing that would be a big problem.
