Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Well, I figured that if I have to wait months in between batches of episodes I might as well just wait until it's all done with. That way I can concentrate on the other 11 anime shows I'm watching this season.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Well you have two months or so wait for the last batch to be out on Blu-ray.

22 episodes are out already and the last group of four will be in theaters in three days.

Two weeks later the last episodes will start to come out weekly on MBS TV stations in Japan (Sundays at 5:00pm). Reportedly a fansub group has picked it up to do those episodes in September to lesses the wait until the Blu-ray comes out at the end of October.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

That's fine. I have Attack on Titan, A Certain Scientific Railgun S, Highschool DXD New, Kimi no Iru Machi, Majestic Prince, Monogatari: Second Season, Rozen Maiden: Zurückspulen, Space Brothers, Sunday Without God, and The World God Only Knows: Goddesses to keep me entertained. Plus I'm also making my way through Jormungand, Is This a Zombie?, and Fist of the North Star 2 too.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

One more week until the episodes air. At this point, I don't think I can wait.

Slightly late, but here is the 2 minute trailer for Chapter 7 covering episodes 23-26.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

From what I am hearing from those that did see the last Chapter, I can see openings for another series in the future. If what I read is correct and what I can piece together from the short trailer goes with what I know of the original series runs in the 1970s and 80s, than I see how they can get to the main plot and some of the subplot elements in a second and even third series remakes. I can even see them having a massive opening ot retell the three movies shown during those times that were not redone versions of the TV series.

A lot depends on what they would do with Gamilas after Yamato leaves and the fate of Dessler. He quite honestly is their most popular villain...even when he's a good guy. While killing him off is a reasonable thing to do, an opening for his return would suit the show and provide a way to get to his own powerful story arc (redemption).

Really? I thought it was awesome.

Also, apparently episode 25 wasn't finished and at the theaters, there was basically a title card explaining that the didn't have the second half ready... which also means that people who went to the theater could only buy vouchers that promised them a BD later rather than the BD itself.

They are cutting it pretty damn close!

I am still curious about how 21 was aired, but not enough to try to scour the Japanese internets to do so.

Wait, Episode 25 was not ready, but episode 26 was? (Or did you mean to say Episode 26?) Interesting also that the theatre goers either didn't receive some sort of compensation being that they bought a ticket and went in expecting to see the finale of the whole thing. (Or was it announced beforehand that the showing would be incomplete and refunds offered?)

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

It was announced several weeks in advance that part of episode 25 wouldn't be finished in time for the theatrical release due to quality issues. They apologied for that. I thin kthey gave an extra item at the theaters to compensate, but it was like a poster or something. The BD was also delayed a month for the same reasons.

It is guessed what is missing isn't plot critical, while episode 26 was plot critical, so they spent their time on that and left 25 until later. What is missing is about 8 minutes of material.

The episode will be on TV in two weeks. Complete for the first time.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Yeah, still a strange problem to have though. I guess they booked all the theaters and such and couldn't push those screenings to at least have a complete experience for them even if they couldn't get the BDs pressed in time, but hey... fans will put up with anything these days.
