"Star Blazers 2199" Launching for International Fans

Plus, a look at a bit of Railgun x Yamato cross promotion

No, it's not some weird cosplay hostage photo. The hosts of the Yamato 2199 Episode 3 web simulcast are holding up a sign saying that the current remake of Space Battleship Yamato will be exported under the name "STARBLAZERS 2199." There's currently no indication of when, how, in what language, or whether they'll make "Star Blazers" two words to bring it in line with the 1979 localized version of the original sci-fi anime. 


Yamato 2199 - The Homesickness of Intergalactic Space, the fifth theatrical packaging of the classic anime remake, screened in Japan on April 13th ahead of a May 28th home video release.



Speaking of Yamato, there was recently a bit of Certain Scientific Railgun S cross promotion
