Nice update as it jarred my memories loose of watching the Americanized version back on some old UHF local channel. Never did see the whole thing or how it ended as it usually ran before school started if i recall right.

I have to say having seen the live action movie I prefer the animated version of the Yamato's destruction of the missile. It's a real demonstration that the Yamato's shock cannons are powerful enough to take on the Gamilans unlike the other UNCN ship's guns at the battle during Plan M.

Also, I'd totally forgotten about the Wave Motion Shield. Explains a lot.

I'm glad Funimation has kept the original Japanese names in the dub. I'm torn about Monica Rial as Starsha. On the one hand there was something other worldly about her voice which fit. On the other I can't help but wonder how it would have sounded with her "big girl" voice.

Ep3 aka Wave Motion Gun HYPE!

I think I got goosebumps.

Only 363 days remain until the extinction of humanity.

(There is one thing that bothers me in this episode and did the first time I watched the series when I was a kid: How the heck does Bridge 3 not get sheered off in the "soft landing"?)

The series approaches the goodness of the original, but the emotional backdrop of the original isn't to be found often in this new one. Still a very good remake, and leagues better than that Live Action remake.

This might be just a theory though I assumed when they land they have a way to retract it so it can remain undamaged or something. That’s what I thought when I watched the episode.

Got to be some legs like model stand-just a theory

Ep5 On to Pluto!

To be honest if I hadn't looked it up I'd have forgotten Yamamoto was a man in the original series. Some purists may take offense but I don't see a problem. Much like Starbuck in the BSG reboot Rei/Akira fits right in. Sort of. I kinda wish they'd have made a least a couple of the "generic" pilots women just so she didn't stand out quite so much.

361 days remain until the extinction of humanity.

Well since I hadn’t seen the original series guessing I’m one of those that don’t mind. Getting good and do wonder if that wave motion cannon can be altered so they can output how much power they can use.

It bother me then and it still bothers me to this day. In today's show you see it was still extended on the crash onto Pluto. Actually I wonder how any of the extended antennas, bridge doesn't get sheared off. TV magic I guess.

In the original series, the 3rd Bridge got blown off almost every other episode I almost made a YouTube video tribute to it, with the sad version of the Yamato theme playing. Maybe the writers just decided to reverse the trope for this series. Either that or they had a partail wave-motion shield on the underside.

Does anybody know if we are going to be able to purchase a Blu-ray of the 2199 series with both Japanese with English subs and with the English dub (by Funimation)? I'm dying to own this series but the one currently available from Japan is hideously expensive. I'm one of those who watched Star Blazers on UHF everyday at 3:30pm after school so I really want to own this one.

I'm very hopeful that with this stream that means Funi will be getting the rights to sell the Blu-ray but as of today I've not seen any announcements to that effect.
