Exam Week

Midterms are upon me.
I have nothing, and will likely have nothing until Friday or Saturday.

As compensation for this, here is some publicity art for Yamato 2199 which I post with some trepidation as the LAST bit of Yamato 2199 cheesecake somehow caused a bit of consternation. Apologies in advance gentle readers for any distress.

1 What I've seen of 2199 is beautiful and highly lovable - taking what was good about the original series, and excising all the wonky "we're still figuring out how to write and produce anime hereabouts" elements which caused occasional WTF moments.

But I find it kind of off-putting the way the female characters have been updated.  Where are all the interchangeable willowy Matsumoto women?  Where's the casual late-Showa sexism that resulted in a ship with only one crew-woman?  Wait, no, that last one is one of the improvements...

2 And they preserved the skin-tight pressure suits, which can't be a bad thing.

3 Dark skin/White hair.  Oooh, one of those trope women I just love....

The Medic's pressure suit seems to have a leaky area.

"The Medic's pressure suit seems to have a leaky area."

Are you implying that "physics" is more powerful than zettai ryouiki?  How silly.

5 Actually, Zettai Ryouki does not, in fact, provide adequate protection against vacuum. This is an important point our female readers should keep in mind when choosing space attire.

I note that this is also evidence against my theory of Yamato uniforms..
