Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

It surprises me, that with SBY2199 airing in Japan now, that Crunchyroll did not get the simulcast rites. That would have allowed it to get to a wider audience. Of course if what is being said about sensitivities about WWII being the deciding factor as to it not being done, I understand. But I think this actually would have been a benefit versus trying to placate another country.

Crunchyroll probably can't get the rights due to StarBlazers 2199 being in the works. There's probably more benefit to the production committee if they just forgo subbed streams for dubs, since it prevents streams from becoming a sticking point with broadcasters.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

That, and the fact that they basically expect people who want the series with subs to buy the BDs directly from Japan.

Plus the series is probably licensed by somebody in the US, since it's being dubbed by Bang Zoom for ComicCon. Thus some other company has the license, probably the same company that released Starblazers here. Either that or Production IG intends to release the dub themselves on some super-special bilingual BD import set that fans will have to sell a kidney to afford.

The company that owns the rights currently, is Voyager Ent. Which is in Japan coincidentally. There was, if they are still around, an office either in Canada or in the US for the company to handle all the rights here. Bang Zoom got hired to do the dubs, and that is about it. The actual company that will have the distribution rights, that is a different story.

I've been watching the episodes on pinoyanime. It really looks good. I hope the whole series makes it to DVD in the US eventually.

I shouldn't have looked (I hate spoilers ); that said, I'm a bit miffed I have to wait until 10/25/13 for my Vol. 7 Blu-Ray to ship - and I probably won't be watching it until November 4th or 5th (and no, it looks so nice on my 73" Mitsubishi DLP that I won't go looking for it on Youtube.)

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

By now it should be clear that anything new could be spoilers. It goes without saying for a show like this.

Still didn't see what was firing that beam.

Also there should be a 8 minute preview of episode 23 very soon now on Bandai Channel (it will show up in places until August 24th when the copyrigth holders will want it down).

I'll lay odds that it was a tractor beam that drags the Yamato to Gamilon.

It's just a guess though.

There is a 10 minute preview of episode 23 out already. If someone else hasn't posted it the next 20 or so hours, I will.

Ten minute preview of episode 23.

Lots of things exploding: From fighters to planets. And that's just the first ten minutes.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

I'm sorely tempted to start watching this again, but I figured I'd just save myself some headaches by just waiting until it's complete and marathoning it. From what I did watch of it already it seems like the type of storyline that would be more awesome when watched that way.

Why wait? I've seen everything up to this point, but plan to do a Marathon viewing myself once I have the last Blu-Ray volume.
