By the way, here’s the live action movie Space Battleship Yamato....it’s not at all bad.
I liked the live-action movie for the most part but it was just too much stuff crammed into one movie with lots of changes to the storyline (what they did to Desslok and the Gamelons made me cringe a bit). They could of made a franchise out of this. I’m not sure if the box office in Japan was too spectacular....perhaps not as well as they hoped.
If I heard right on the grapevine, the anime “reboot” was an effort to jump start the series with a new generation of fans (like Star Trek).
I hope they can find a US distributor (sci-fi) because I think it will find a very receptive audience here.
