That's for the japanese theatre showings - the Blu-Ray doesn't release until May 28.2013 -- so make that two months.

[Yep - looks like a real interesting batch of 4 episodes there based on that preview]
Is that the Blu-Ray for the entire series?

Its being released on both DVD and Blue-ray. The only difference between the two is Blue-ray has sub-titles and more information. The DVD does not have sub-titles. Also, its just for the 4 eps that are coming out in April.

Oh yeah.... Also, it seems that the women on board the Yamato are getting a little bit hot... And I do not mean in the looks way.... Other than that it is going to be a roller coaster ride with ep 15 to 18, in this chapter of the series.

Oh... Take a look at this... The numbers under the ep is the number of views it has at the site I CP'd it from.

If you take at look at ep 15 how the hell did it garnish that many views when it hasn't been shown yet!!?? What was this site thinking putting up the unaired eps. Well, the actual view count is skewed now when it is finally put up.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Best guess?

People who watched up to 14 elsewhere and did a search for 15, finding that one and watching it.

Same is probably true for episode 11, (over 9000 views), though it is also possible some people were just rewatching the Gamilas battle with the Comet Empire as that was rather cool and unexpected. There are also a lot of fans that liked the second series more and enjoyed that battle.

Before ep 11 was up it was already skewed with over (if I remember), with over 3,000 views. I do not doubt that individuals re-watched that particular ep for the battles but also for Melda too, since she was scantily clad and the bath scene to with Yuki and Yammamoto.

No doubt that a lot of fans liked the Comet Empire arc a lot more with all the battles where the Iscandar arc had few battles.

You know most bad guys kick the dog to show their villainness, but the Gamilas seem to carpet bomb the dog from orbit and then use a colony drop to make sure it stays down.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

I wonder if that is standard Imperial policy, or if that is just an Imperial Guard thing. Since this is conquored planet rather than something like Earth which is actively at war with Gamilas. This planet was probably either rebelling or protesting the Gamilas rule, but instead of subjegation, they just went straight to kill the lacky leader and genocide. I wonder if they could Gamilform it afterwards for the blue skinned citizens, rather than leave a dead husk of a world.

One wonders if Dessler even approves of this sort of thing. Or if he even is informed about it. He seems fairly aloof. Like he has larger things on his mind than the day in day out Empire building. (or he's fantasying about Starsha).

When you think about historically, the SS did the same thing. Of course the only difference was that Hitler approved it. Where as Deslar is like you say.

Of course the only major difference from other series that use mass planet destruction is the fact that they are using not that many ships and a few planet bombs. In Star Wars, the whole planet was destroyed in one shot, while in Macross they came close to wiping out humanity with over 4 million ships. So it begs the question, Who has killed more people now? And Hitler does not count nor any real despots past or present.

Depends on if he was the one who signed off on the whole dropping radioactive meteors on Earth thing.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Hopefully we will find out more about Dessler. He's supposedly assassinated this time around. But this is Dessler. He's harder to kill than a cockroach. He doesn't stay dead...usually to our benefit.

My interests of late have been warships and background materials. Putting the pieces together (again) is its own project since several thing are either different, or not longer "assumed only" material.


As a reminder: Yamato 2199 starts on TV April 7th at 5 pm Tokyo Time on MBS-TBS stations. (there are only two days left).

Chapter 5 comes to theaters a week later on the 13th. The BD will be out 6 weeks after that on the 28th of May.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Assassinated??? Hmmm...don't know if I like that story. Then again, in the original series, he did jettison himself into deep space without aid of a pressure suit, only to be discovered and brought back to life by the White Comet forces. If he did get clipped, I highly doubt that he would stay dead for very long.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

I think the assassination plot was from one of the manga. Not sure if they will use the whole thing or just a failed attempt on Dessler's life that is caught rather than the manga version (Dessler's armed harem to the rescue?)

Could lead to a civil war in the Empire at the time Yamato is closing in, weakening the defenses so that they don't have to blast their way through tens of thousands of warships shooting at them. Cause even Yamato's shields and armor have limits.

But then Yamato has its own problems.

About the only sure thing in this series? That Yamato get home with the device to clean up Earth. (or at least the device makes it to Earth). But people living and dying? The game is different. No one is for sure safe anymore.

My assumption would be that the end of this season will at least have everyone around who was suppose to be alive for the original second season. But that is not a certain thing....even if they have introduced many characters from later seasons and films already.

Is it confirmed that this series is supposed to launch a second season?
