Set to debut in just a few days in Japan, Space Battleship Yamato 2199 is an attempt to resurrect the classic Yamato (known here in the USA as Starblazers with a modern look. But… not too modern. Actually imagine the Yamato you know just with better animation quality and you’ll have this new show. And that’s a good thing.

You’ll see what I mean in this footage from the show. Distributor Bandai has released ten minutes of ship on ship battle action from the series and it looks, flat out great. Watch…

If they can update the animation, solve some of the logical problems of the original show (for example they didn’t really seem to know what the solar system was) then this could really be something special, maybe nearly as special as the original Space Battleship Yamato was back in the seventies. Assuming of course, that when they finally bring this version to America, they keep the theme song…

    You know what would be neat? If the video was not set to PRIVATE and could be, you know, watched. Bet that would be cool. Oh well.
