However there was an announcement today that might (might) make it cheaper to get in 2014. http://starblazers.com/article/star-blazers-2199-dvd-blue-ray-disc-new-release/ It seems Yamato 2199 will be getting a United States release under the Star Blazers 2199 label. These will be DVDs and Blu-rays that will be subtitled in English and Spanish. These are not dubbed. But they should be cheaper than getting the BD from Japan. Details are unknown save for preorder starting on December 19th and them starting to be sold in February.
