Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

One month to go folks, we're getting two episodes next month.

Fan subs to shortly follow. Oh what I'd give for this (or any of the recent Yamato fare) to get a US release.

I wonder if Voyager Entertainment is still around.

I loved the live action movie, and this looks like more riches for us longstanding fans of this anime.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Wait, this threads gone this long and nobodies posted a link to the trailer?

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gSTe5...eature=related


As long as they're staying faithful to the original source material, I am all over this! (I'm sick to death of "We had to make changes to make the story accessible to modern audiences.")

Of course what I really hope is that it does well enough that they'll be able to do series two.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

So how can we watch this over here in the U.S.? I prefer subtitles to dubbing.

I'll be VERY disappointed if they tone down Analyzer's blatant sexual harassment.

The cool thing about Analyzer's inappropriate behavior is that it gives the fan service a story/character component rather than just being there. It's also awesome that this robot can become drunk.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

I've been following the progress of this ever since I heard about it a few months ago. Now THIS is how to do a remake (IMO). Unfortunately, there haven't been too many details if this will be a simple verbatim remake with upgraded animation or if they're going to be interweaving new concepts into the old framework. I'm hoping for the latter but the former would do just as well for me.

As always, I will reserve judgment until I see it, but I am very gratified to see a resurgence in interest for this particular title. Yamato/Star Blazers was a watershed anime event in both Japan & the US back in the 70's and 80's and it's high-time that a new generation gets to enjoy it.

Yep - www.starblazers.com

They've been working up monthly reports about this project and have been at the forefront of all things Yamato in America for over a decade now.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Enjoyed starblazers, Ordered the Live action Yamato Blu-Ray and was dissapointed, didn't like the changes to the Gamilions, plus it had way too much Soap opera melodrama for my liking. the movie felt 30 mins too long. Some scenes were way too drawn out....SFX were great though. I'll prob check out the remade series regardless. I'd love to see the original macross get this kind of revival though, I've always favored it a little more anyway.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Makes me wonder if the anime movie that was released in concert with the live action movie was actually a probe to test the waters for this project.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Was a big fan of the live action movie actually. Yes some of the changes are a bit jarring at first, but to me they made sense. It was hard enough compressing an entire tv series into two hours without having an entire new series of characters (i.e. The Gamalons) to introduce and give any screen time. And I'm not sure that painting a bunch of guys blue would really work live.

Wouldn't surprise me if they toned down Analyzers antics just a bit. I'm sure they don't want to completely turn off female fans.
Same reason they're adding at least one more female to the main cast.

IIRC, when Yamato was first released, it started off its life as a series and then was later cut down to a 130 minute theatrical release after its popularity was determined. They can do it again.

Making Gamilus into bugs sucked the drama out of the film. What was good about the TV series was that Gamilus looked human, this effected the crew. It made it difficult to fight an enemy similar to them.

Making them bugs was just computer game shoot-em up crap.

And I'm not sure that painting a bunch of guys blue would really work live.
Andorians anyone?
