    They made the third bridge important to the ship in Yamato 2199, the loss of it would be a permanent cripple unless they can get back to Earth for repairs. Not only is it part of the ship's keel, its the gravity control generator and their shield generator. That's a serious loss this time around if they ever lose it.

    Chapter 6 of Yamato 2202 will come out in theaters later today in Japan ( like eight hours from now or so).

    Chapter 7 of Yamato 2202, the "New Star Chapter" (ending of this season) comes to Japanese theaters on March 1, 2019.

    Early reviews I'm hearing speak good of Chapter Six. In the "Awesome" range of things, with the large question being "how will they top that for Chapter Seven?"

    Yeah.

    I don't watch anime, but I've been following this particular release quite closely.

    From what I can gather it's done pretty well in the cinema. Atleast one person has mentioned the story, art and animation has jumped in quality. Reactions to the new captain have been generally positive, with her being referred to as cool (one or two have commented on how all the captains in Yamato are cool).

    Several clips have been posted online in other forums.
    I don't know how long they'll last before being taken down, but all I'll say is 'Holy Sh*t', the animators really outdid themselves.
    If this is where the money went, it was worth it.
    Also, R.I.P. Andromeda, at least she went down guns blazing.

    So much better end for that ship than in the previous versions of this story.

    DAMN! Why couldn't the first half of the season been like this?!? I've kind of been lukewarm on this season's episodes so far but now I'm really looking forward to seeing this next year.

    So, Captain of the Alderan. . . based off of the Captain of the Andromeda in 'Farewell to Space Battleshp Yamato', or just a coincidence?

    I would think that is intentional. Giving him the second Andromeda (Aldebaran) is fair I guess.

    Looks and sounds great!

    The Ginga seems almost likes it's intended as a support mage in an MMO

    I'd read a description of her destruction on other forums, but to actually see it, even on my computer monitor, got me a little misty-eyed.

    Probably ranks up there with the loss of the Enterprise in STIII.

    At least her and her sister ships earned their keep this time around.

    Plus literally using its last gasp to pull the Yamato's bacon out of the fire is a good way to go out.

    Earned the right to be called a hero ship this time around for sure.

    Funimation is doing a "Space Battleship Yamato" Livestream on Tuesday 12/4/18 at 1 PM EDT/4 PM PDT.


    The above said, I have no idea just exactly what will be streamed other than it's SBY related.

    One last set of clips from Chapter Six before it comes out on BD in two weeks.

    Ginga's fleet defense shields prove their worth.


    Gatlantis moves out from Saturn
