Space Battleship Yamato 2199: Sampler and Review
[Here is a guest post by meister Mandel of the Integrated Leijiverse Timeline :D]
It looks like this is going to be every Star Blazers/Yamato fan’s wet dream come true. They’re sticking to the original story and the original music (with just some slight tweaks here and there), but giving the whole show a MASSIVE graphics upgrade. Still faithful to the original concepts and designs, just updated and tweaked a lot. Can’t go wrong there! Yeah, it’s the newer “bland” generic character style, like you see in Yamato: Resurrection and with a lot of anime shows these days, but they may have done that to appeal to younger audiences. Personally, I don’t have a problem with it, although I do kinda miss the obvious telltales of M-san’s handiwork. Anyhow, here’s a solid 10 minutes from the first episode. Judge for yourself.
It’s all in Japanese, but Star Blazers/Yamato fans don’t need a translation. We KNOW the story … !
