Yamato (the old series or remake) will always have a special place in my heart. While the redo may seem to some fans as unneeded, I will watch it. The crisp new designs, expanded universe and the music … it gets me excited every time! Today marks a release of the first 12 minutes of Space Battleship Yamato 2202: Warriors of Love (宇宙戦艦ヤマト2202 愛の戦士たち), the second film of the series, a week ahead of the theatrical screening in Japan.

Based on the visuals and what I can understand in the piece, planets are being marked. As returning characters celebrate a peace of sorts (from the last movie), Kodai is in conference to hear about yet another threat that’s coming. Gatlantis is sweeping over the universe and approaching Earth.

The bumper on the top right exists to let viewers know about the upcoming theatrical release on Jun 24, 2017 and on the official Bandai Youtube page, pre-sales for a special limited edition blu-ray will also begin simultaneously as this volume will be released July 28th.

As of 2:00 am Pacific Standard Time (PST) the website for the animated series Space Battleship Yamato 2202 (宇宙戦艦ヤマト2202) has launched. The series is a sequel to Space Battleship Yamato 2199 (宇宙戦艦ヤマト2199) that aired on Japanese television in 2013. Yamato was created by Yoshinobu Nishizaki and Leiji Matsumoto in 1974. It premiered in North America in 1979 under the title Star Blazers.

Very little information on the upcoming series is available on the site and no release date for 2202 is known. The only information available to the public is in the form of comments by Producer Shoji Nishizaki (Space Battleship Yamato 2199), Writer Harutoshi Fukui (Mobile Suit Gundam Unicorn) , and Director Nobuyoshi Habara (Broken Blade). According to August Ragone of the Space Battleship Yamato Facebook group, Harutoshi Fukui’s comment read “Love” is by no means powerless, while dangerous words cannot be turned into a deadly weapon. Harsh reality and compromise, encourages change by force. In perfecting humanism, each of us must be aware of our strength, and ponder on the fact that force was bestowed upon us as a biological instinct. Speaking to ourselves, we must repeat this message less it be broken, and be confident in that a true revival of Yamato is being created. “Space Battleship Yamato 2202: Soldiers of Love”. I will devote my life to making this. Please stay tuned!

On the Yamato’s official Twitter another image of teaser art by Makoto Kobayashi was posted.
