    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.
