Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Lookie, lookie... Something new popped up on Youtube for us to enjoy while we wait for the release on DVD/BD later this month. It is a montage of what has happened so far with the remix (35 voices) of the main theme. At the end is a retro to the '70's era.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Interesting. As we get closer to the release date for Chapter 5 we are reminded that Chapter 6 is right around the corner as it comes out in theaters 18 days after the Blu-ray for Chapter 5 does. With its own BD coming out six weeks after that followed by a rapid one month for Chapter 7 then its BD by the end of September.

All the while the episodes come out on TV weekly in Japan.

Yamato 2199 might not be able to beat Evangelon 3.33 or Gundam Unicorn these days, but it hold high respectible sales verses other modern anime.

A preview for Chapter 6 (specifically for Episode 19).

Looks like the lead up to the Battle of the Rainbow Galaxy.

A taste of Chapter 5 (specifically episode 18), where Yamato's command staff gains data on ther next destination: Balun.

But they also find something horrible is at Balun....10,000 Gamilas warships.

The "short version" preview for Chapter 6 came out today. It comes to theaters in Japan on the 15th and BD six weeks after that (basically two months from now).

My BD of Chapter 5 should arrive in a day or two according to Amazon.co.jp

It's only been a day, but are there summaries of the latest batch of episodes?

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

When is this series going to get to the USA??? I loved Star Blazers when I first saw it in the late 70s.

No idea. The only thing we do know is that it will come to the US as Star Blazers 2199.

Looks like they may be forgoing the battle near the multi colored bunch of planets and are having their big decisive battle at Balan.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

I'm not entirely certain where the carrier battle is taking place, but that is definately not Balun.

I won't have my copy for another day or so, but I've seen it without subtitles so I can give a view of Chapter 5.

Very spoiler heavy by the way.

















That was a lot of typing, and many spoilers. Many many spoilers...and that is without knowing all the details due to not yet having a version with subtitles (soon though).

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Well, now... All four eps (15-18) were just one plot twist after another. What will be in store for us when the next 4 eps come out. I really would like to know what is going on in Melda's head now that she has seen the grim truth of what her government is doing. Also, Niimi, it seems, she still has very strong feelings for the elder Kodai. I am guessing that because that they were separated, due to jobs, is the reason for the split. The next set of eps may shed some light on this. I would bet that Yuria/Yurisha will also shed some more light onto what is going on too.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Having seen the episodes now with subtitles (the BD arrived yesterday). I can say that there isn't much to add to the summeries. Their may be some detail things I got better for understanding them, but he general stuff was understood before that.
