Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Here is where you can see eps 23-26 RAW. If you do not see Uchuu Senkan Yamato 2199 in the on going series. Click on Anime list, then click on U. Scroll down to where it says Uchuu senkan Yamato 2199.

Not much can be gotten from that little amount of text.

All that is know is that they are making a "completely new story" for theatrical release in 2014. And that it will be related to Space Battleship Yamato 2199.

That means it probably isn't a compilation film like the 1977 film Space Battleship Yamato.

But aside from that it could be almost anything.

A prequel film on the Earth-Gamilas War.

A sequel film on Earth verse the Comet Empire (a remake of sorts of Farewell to Space Battleship Yamato)

An in-between series film about what happens to Gamilas after Yamato leaves.

An in-between film about what happens after Yamato returns to Earth.

An adventure during the voyage to or from Iscandar that they didn't have time to tell in the 26 episode run of Yamato 2199.

Lots of things.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Yep, it's just an announcement of a thing that will exist next year.

I posted my thoughts about the series and the finale on another board, so I thought I'd just copy and paste it here. Spoilers for Yamato, obviously, but also for the endings of a few science fiction properties over the year so I'll just put the whole thing under a spoiler tag here.



I'm really looking forward to 2014 now.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Interesting. Maybe they are taking a NuBSG "Razor" route, showing a side-story during the course of Y2199.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

What other board was that posted too that so few may see it?

(Never mind, I found it).


Next weekend is the 39th anniversary of Space Battleship Yamato. The first episode aired on October 6th, 1974. Hopefully the film in 2014 might be related to the 40th anniversary, or will contribute to it.

What I want is to see the rebuilt Earth fleet using this new CG style.

Yeah, I posted it here: http://www.neogaf.com/forum/showpost...&postcount=402

It's where I typically hang out for anime talk nowadays!

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

RE: The 'new' story in 2014.

Given (from what I've read) that when the original 1973 SBY series was in development, it was a 52 episode arc (cut to 35; then 26 episodes); and that 'Captain Harlock' was planned to be introduced in SBY (and later the character was just put into his own standalone series/story); anyone want to take bets they might just try something with a Captain Harlock crossover such as was originally intended for SBY?

[Yeah, probably not, but IMO it would be an interesting twist.]

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Oh, yes! I remember reading about that years ago. That would be cool - wasn't it postulated that Harlock was supposed to have been Kodai's brother post-Iscandar-destruction? Probably nothing more than a rumor, due to the similar nature in which the characters were drawn - I think that was more of a Matsumoto stylistic hero trope than anything based in reality, much like the "Matsumitis" (long-neck syndrome) of all the fair-haired blue-eyed non-Japanese-looking women in his shows. Yuki, Starsha & her sister, Trelena, etc., etc...

I'd point out that CosmoDNA has a forum now for those that want to take about Yamato/Star Blazers in more detail than one would expect in a Star Trek forum.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

So now I'm caught up, well at least with the subed episodes, still waiting on the group I'm following to release 23-26...which probably won't be until the BD is out.

I was going to wait but then the other day I was tinkering with my electronics setup and one thing led to another and I had my laptop connected to the big screen TV marathoning Yamato episodes.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

BTW - if you're in the Los Angeles area and want to see the 2010 Japanese live action "Space Battleship Yamato" film on the big screen (with English subtitles); the L.A. Downtown Independent (a small 'art house' theatre) is having two showings:

Saturday October 19th at 7:30 PM
and
Sunday October 27th at 5:00 PM

Here's a link to info about the showings, the theatre, and how to get tickets if you're interested:

http://www.downtownindependent.com/e...tleship-yamato

(No, I don't work at, nor am I affiliated with said theatre; but I do have a ticket for myself for the October 19, 7:30 PM showing.)

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Thinking about the live action movie, it is funny that they did the "hotshot female pilot" first.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

So, the final BD is out for people who were waiting for it!

At this point, I just hope that someone does a re-release here with a more reasonable price.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Last I heard, Voyager may be doing it, hopefully with minimal changes. It will probably take a while to get here, though.

Re: Space Battleship Yamato 2199

Just received my SBY: 2199 Blu-Ray Disc 7 this afternoon (I was tracking it on the USPS site and from past discs deliveries, it looked like it would be delivered around 1:00 PM - so I went home for lunch, doorbell rang at 12:44 PM; signed for the delivery (and verified it was the right disc), and headed back to work.

Going to watch the final 4 episodes of the re-imagined SBY tonight after dinner (with the English subtitles on, of course).

[I really do hope they decide to proceed with a re-imagining of "Comet Empire" at some point in the near future. I've read here in this thread and other places that they are doing something in the SBY:2199 universe in 2014. I just hope they do the same thing they did with this series - IE Release a Blu-Ray disc playable in the U.S. with English subtitles, but time will tell.]

Still, happy to finally have all 7 discs in my possession.
