New Yamato!

Posted in Uncategorized on July 7, 2010 by russellsreviews

2010 is going to be a big year for Space Battleship Yamato fans. Know as star blazers in the west, Space Battleship Yamato is one of the first anime’s that played a big part in the early parts of otaku culture. Ealier this year they release a new anime film, but kept the old style look. Take a look.

Now in December of this year they are making a live action verision of the original story. Now I know this might sound scary with the bad adaptation of anime movies in the past (with the expection of Speed Racer) this looks rather good. It not only has a big hollywood budget but its being made not only in Japan, but the orignal creators themselves. Man, if Japan makes this work, it won’t be long until stuff like this invades Hollywood. I say good. Lets get something new rather than remakes of 70 and 80’s TV shows and movies.
