Well This Looks Exciting

People keep telling me to look at this trailer, saying things like...

"Oh my! Yes please!"


"I am SO ready..I've got my Wave Motion Goggles and everything!"

So I figured I ought to at least look at it...

It's in Hi-def so you can embigulate it!

Oh my stars and garters! That looks really..really nice!

Yamato 2199 looks to be a straight-up remake of the 1974 series, and aside from the character designs and a few added female crewmembers, it looks astoundingly faithful. This is obviously a labor of love for Enagio.

Interestingly, although it will be a 26 episode series, it's going to be released in theaters as seven full length features!

I'm very curious as to whether this will be brought over  eventually (given the state of the market) and if so if it will be released as SCY or Star Blazers. Star Blazers was actually quite successful and aside from  "That Knox thing" was as faithful as 1979 Standards and practices would allow, in some ways improving on the original.

I'd be quite pleasantly surprised if there were to be a Star Blazers revival, but whatever form the US release takes (If it does so at all) I am seriously looking forward to this.

2 Goosebumps.

Looks gorgeous, same great score, and the sound of the shock cannons gets my blood flowing, that's for sure.

Looking forward to some great BD releases, as it is very, very unlikely we will see this on the big screen in the US.

That said, it will look nice on my 10' screen at work - that'll have to do, I suppose.
