    What that podcast said about Saki Todo's character arc sadly seems to be a rather consistent complaint I've seen on Twitter. I mean, most of it seems to be praising everything about chapter 6 (including Saki Todo), but that does seem to be the number one complaint I've seen.

    Funimation will be resuming their streaming for the English dub of Yamato 2202 (Star Blazers 2202) in their winter season. Resuming on February 2nd.

    Chapter Six has been released on BD (Japanese language only) and Chapter Seven comes out in theaters on March 1st, with the BD for that coming the last week of April, around the time Funimation's dubbed release should end.

    They're probably geared up to do a near simultaneous dub (They've done that for a few series before.)

    The time fault seems to have been re-tuned while Yamato was away at Telezart. At the start of the series, time inside the time fault passed at ten times the speed of the real world. Thus if you spent an hour in the time fault (maximum safe allowance for a human) only six minutes would have passed in the outside world. By the time Ginga is completed, the shipyard has a control ship with modified engines that can keep its interior set for normal space-time inside the ship so the automated shipyard can be monitored. But it also seems they can now adjust the temporal distortion, perhaps via the Cosmo Reverse System (which is what created the time fault in the first place). Because after Ginga is completed, they plan seems to be to delay Gatlantis for ten days. In ten days time a year's worth of production can take place and a new fleet will be built to replace the one holding Gatlantis back. Than that fleet is to hold off Gatlantis for another ten days. The cycle to repeat ten times in today (100 days) At which point the ships being built in the time fault should be entirely automated and able to keep Gatlantis in check indefinitely. But there is no victory in this plan...just survival of the human species. Basically it becomes two powers locking in an endless cycle of destruction using clones and robots. At least until the resources give out. But the other half of the Earth's plan was to settle another world and start over while Gatlantis is busy fighting the endless automated fleet. And Zordar seems fine with this at first. It is other matters (involved Yamato) that force him to move rather than just like Earth play its game.
