I never trusted itou. His eyes were of the shifty/conniving look. but i am betting
I've not seen 2199 before so this is all speculation on my part.

Ep17

Never underestimate the ingenuity of a scientist caught in a trap.

Enjoyed seeing more of Sanada's backstory. And the secret of the Auto Nav is out.

273 days remain until the extinction of humanity.

Well, Domel is the only bad guy I ever respect and like. He reminded me a bit of Thrawn from Star Wars in like battle smarts. The beginning just shows that the Empire isn’t all perfect and if one is under suspicion you are instantly guilty. Makes me wonder if there are those among them that are power hungry and are willing to do anything.

The Yamato, new revelations. Sanada is a badass now. The auto nav, that could explain a lot. And think the girl was maybe escorting the Iscandar person.

Okita's pair are so big they had to make the state room bigger.

You got to love the bad guys

Leader-Elk and Sub commander Wolf both are more complex than average characters really have screen presence and respect. Even the battle song they sing is great

Yeah, but the song is a homage/rip off of the sceme from The Battle of the Bulge movie when the Commander inspects the tank commanders and remarked 'Old men and young boys'. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YPzTGx96P6U

Edit: Sorry I found the full scene here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8JDkdc246QQ

Ep 19

The destruction of Balun dealt a severe blow to the Gamilan fleet but they are in no way out of the fight. Okita and Elk prepare to face-off for the decisive battle.

Loved the Gamilan song. I don't recall if that appeared in the original.

Only 245 days remain until the extinction of humanity.

Just started watching the show, it looks good overall. I did find the whole massacre of the space fleet a bit much. Even if it serves a purpose, it seems like a bad idea to kill off so many.

Other than that, the nuclear meteorites sound weird...

But seriously, LOL @ this

Epic battle was epic. Crazy thought is few times I thought of the Battle of Midway a bit. Don’t know why.

And those Gamalians, such an embarrassment when they learn something. So in a way it’s a victory for the Yamato. So now time to hide and lick their wounds and repair.

Next episode will be epic. Hope this series continues and doesn’t end and we will have to wait like half a year.

I mean, it's literally the WW2 battleship Yamato. In space. In a show going out of its way as much as possible to visually imply naval combat on an ocean instead of in space. Even the "torpedo" hits in this episode exploded as if in water.

So it's not exactly a crazy thought.

A few of the sound effects for the Gamilan fighters sounded like prop planes; particularly when they'd turn to dive. I'm sure the whole thing was designed to evoke a sea battle. They even had broadside exchanges at the end.
