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

I haven't seen anything at Anime News Network about it. It may or may not be in the works at this time. If it is, then that will be great.

No word on if they will make a second season from this show.

All speculation is based on the previous version of this show from the 1970s and 1980s where there were three seasons and five movies, plus manga.

Here is a pic of the planet that gets attacked in 10 min preview:

It also has a name: Alteria

At first it almost looks like a scene from Star Wars Ep 1 or 2 of the planet Naboo.

Yes, but no one decided to destroy Naboo's cities from orbit and clean up the mess with rampaging attack bombers.

I can't help but wonder if Palpatine ever considered doing that just for the hell of it though.

His clone did in the comics with world destroyers. But did not attack Naboo. Also, Imperial/Victory class Star Destroyers could attack from orbit.

That is all off topic now.

But we do see the ruthlessness of the Secret Police headed by Gimleh who is like a certain Nazi (I do not mean Hitler), who did that same thing, since he headed the Gestapo. I am really interested in what Melda was doing and what she will do next.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Checked the forum rules and there is nothing that says I can't double post. So correct me if I am wrong.

Here is something from Anime News Network concerning the first Ep of SBY 2199.

http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news...ercent-ratings

It garnished the highest ratings for the time slot it was in. Now that is impressive.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

For today that is impressive. 40 years ago, when there were less channels, that wouldn't be as good. The orignal series in 1974-75 had an average rating of 6% and that was considered bad. (Its third rerun in 1978, during Yamato Fever was 13.8%)

Yamato 2 (Comet Empire series) had an average rating of 22.9% on its first run in 1978-79. That series was awesome. Also that was the high point of Yamato Fever.

Will lightning strike twice? It is starting to look like it. Will the Yamato Fever return? Maybe.

Just so you know the highest rated anime in Japan is usually Sazae-san, which has been on forever. It is getting in the 10-20% range these days.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Here is the official rankings for last week with SBY 2199 ranked 5th.

http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news...king-april-1-7

Its amazing that some of the other continuous animes (Naruto) are not in the top ten it seems. So not much competition at this time.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Chapter 5 seems like it will be very awesome when it comes to BD. Lots of charcter development. Use of a number of previously dropped plotline that made it to the manga but were cut in 1974-75 due to ratings and the reductions of episodes. And a few large battles.

Plus the BIG battle should be near the start of Chapter 6, meaning they will be at least three episodes ahead of the original, giving them more room for plot as they get closer to Iscandar.

Well, you are right about that. I have seen the spoilers for 15-18 and let me tell you, it is a roller coaster ride. So without spoiling it for you all, I will say this, there are many mysteries along the way that ask more questions than answers. Also, someone is going to be assassinated. I will not say who since that will spoil the fun... hehe. As it is, ep 18 will have the dramatic shift in plot. That is all I am saying. Also, the the Bee planet shows up, but I will not spoil that either.

They actually kept the 'Bee-planet' for this run, eh?

Kinda surprised, but given how they've handled everything else so far; I won't judge until I've received and watched the episode in a month or so.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Yes the Beeland planet is there. But what happens there will be a lot different than what happened last time.

Also providing a "logical" reason why the Gamilas were not actively hunting down Yamato as it approached Balun. The defenses in the original seemed rather passive compared to "just send in the fleet" tactic one would expect from a major intergalactic empire.
