Space Battleship Yamato 2199

ICV2 had this up this morning. I knew Space Battleship Yamato (known in the US as Starblazers) was popular, but had no idea they were re-doing it. The clip below is in Japanese, but wow... just... wow...

I love the part where the Earth weapons literally bounce off the Gamilon ships.

Man, if they redo the Comet Empire series too, I'll be in hog heaven.

Hot damn, that looks great!

Looks great. Have you seen the Live Action version they did a couple years back? I finally saw a chopped up, partially subtitled youtube version of it. Looked great, can't vouch for the writing, though, since I couldn't undertand most of it. Still, looked like it had some budget and thought behind it.

No, I hadn't heard about that, rologutwein! I'll try to track it down on youtube.

Whoa. I've got to wait till my 40s to get new Yamato material! Not that it's "new" but you know what I mean. I'd still like to see that Resurection and live action movie. Resurection wasn't finished and the live action movie wasn't released here.

It looks like science fiction writers have given up on this century as being one of high-tech advancement. I remember Robotech, which had us defeating the Zentraidi by now... :-(
