Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

In a country were 30,000 plus sales are extremely good for an anime. Discs that cost 7,800 yen retail. It isn't like buying a $20 or 30 dollar film at Target. These things are expensive, and they have always been expensive in Japan. It is a specific market of people that buy discs over there when renting is popular and there are legal streaming sites.

And yet Yamato still sells very well compared to other anime even when it has less extras than some of the others. Because it is Yamato.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

I do that sometimes.

Still trying to process all that is going on.

It doesn't help that I'm not sure what the general plot for episoide 22 is. I know more or less the first three episodes of Chapter 6, but the last episode I don't know.

Unknown. Best guess is Dessler hasn't gotten to him yet.

But someone was kind enough to fansub this trailer:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qv4VAJ3LADk


So what will they do? Wave Motion Energy is not suppose to be used as a weapon...but the wave motion gun's trigger will have to be pulled at least one more time.

And.....and

If that wasn't enough for you, they released the 8 minute preview of Episode 19 today.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Man, these trailers. Every arc seems to up the ante in some way... although it's kind of hilarious how the scale of the battles seems to have changed.

Yet another trudge until July.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Question or anyone that may know:

Is there talk of giving the other original 1970ies era Space Battleship Yamato story arcs the 'updated' treatment? - (IE are they considering/planning to do the Comet Empire or Bolar Wars storylines after the run of the original updated story is finished?)

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

There is no word yet on if they intend of continue with the other series arcs at this time.

They have, however, included things from those series into Yamato 2199. Things that could or should logically be present, just were not in the original because they hadn't written those stories yet. Things like the dimentional submarine from the Bolar Wars, or the Comet Empire fleets fighting the Gamilas Empire in 2199. Or people like the other admirals or fleet captains we'd see later on doing stuff in the Gamilas War, or people who might be important later in the story that have connections to the present cast being shown early (Tokogawa's younger son for example).

If the discs do indeed make a profit you can bet your wave motion gun on them making more. Cash flow is most often what determines if something is continued as far as anime goes.

How about these instead?

Someone has the Limited Edition BD and filmed two scenes with a phone camera. (The movie is still in theaters and the theater purchased BD are almost out of stock in all 16 theaters...it has only been out for about four days).

The first is the funeral after the Battle of the Rainbow Cluster

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KtJfHNVVDKQ

The second is a lighthearted bit in the mess hall (probably episode 22) were Yamamoto introduces two familiar alien guests to ice cream.

Hopefully they work.

(I was hoping for a battle scene, but I take what I can get)
