    Yamato 2202

    If you haven't yet watched it, find a place where you can watch the Odyssey of the Celestial Ark movie for 2199. It's not critical, but it's a really great movie. 2202 is the direct sequel to 2199, so that would be your next viewing after Odyssey. In other news, some sad news on the modeling front: on Facebook Minoru Itgaki said he talked with some Bandai representatives and they said the 1/72 line of planes models didn't sell well, so they're not gonna be continuing those. So if you're looking forward to new 1/72 models you're crap out of luck.

    In 2199, aside from a couple particularly egregious parts, it's not that bad.

    Look at this shot of Yamanami closely.

    It's not that the bar is set too high, it's that the competitor decided to do a flying leap in the complete opposite direction.

    I wouldn't expect any until the TV series is done.

    We also haven't seen the EDF battlecruiser. The triple turrets are torpedo launchers.

    Kobayashi posted the orthos for the EDF frigate! https://twitter.com/makomako713/status/992557303160127488 Compared to the other EDF ships: 125 meters is a bit smaller than I expected, but it's still longer than the original length of 112 meters. Now I hope we can see the other EDF ships!

    Keep in mind after the next chapter releases there's still 2 more chapters (or 8 episodes). The next chapter covers episodes 15-18. The original solar system battle started in episode 18.

    Yeah I love 2199 a lot. I've spent hours combing through obscure lore stuff and miscellaneous trivia and Google translating Japanese blogs and drawing ships. That doesn't mean I'm not aware of its flaws, like egregious fanservice at times, frakking up stuff like the timeline, and Dessler's ??? actions toward the end. 2202 has just enough potentially good elements that I'm invested in seeing how it turns out (if nothing more than to rewrite it in fanfiction), but a lot of flaws that severely hamper my enjoyment of it.

    https://twitter.com/makomako713/status/987105227508596736 Kobayashi posted details of the Yamato-colored Andromeda. So some details: It's got "high maneuver" thruster nozzles The double WMG is split like the WMG on the Dreadnought So Kobayashi didn't bother giving it an actual name, just the "Andromeda Yamanami Special" like it's some sort of ace custom mech instead of a military warship crewed by hundreds of people. The ID is also weird, ZZZ-0001YF-2203. I like the design overall—Andromeda looks great in Yamato colors—but once again I've niggling issues that hamper my enjoyment. Would like to see some models of it though. The only real thing that would need to be added is the divider in the WMG, which shouldn't be too hard.

    Kobayashi be posting things. https://twitter.com/makomako713/status/971731739759357953 Of note is "Neu Balgrey" as the name of one of the Andromeda carriers with a Gamilas insignia. Also I guess the Shinano was real. Oh yeah, and EDF frigate! Mostly eh about these stuff TBH.

    The producer mentioned talks with a licensing company yesteryear. Given the dub and sub of 2199 that's ongoing, it's likely we'll get the official dub and sub when 2202's released as a TV series.

    Send them to Central Anime. EDIT: The reason they're slow is because we have to wait for them to receive the Bluray/DVD rips to do work. There's also no one else who's doing Yamato fansubs IIRC, so they're pretty much the only game in town.

    Yamato 2202

    There's no reason they'd be discontinued this early into the run given how popular they are. They're still available on other sites. http://www.1999.co.jp/eng/10457024

    The box art for the 2202 Gamilas Warships set has been released. Looks sweet as always. Also some other things: コレジャナイメカ Those new mechs in vintage style. Source 1 Source 2 Dreadnought in Gaiderol colors. Not half bad! Source Someone modded an Andromeda into an Arcadia.

    I updated my definitive size chart for 2202. Now features the Calakmul and Gostok. Warning: big.

    I'm still of the opinion that lowering the hanger down a level like this would have been a good compromise.

    Yamato 2202

    So a carrier based on Andromeda wasn't something new to 2202, all the way back to the planning of Resurrection in 1993 there were designs for it. IIRC this was done by Kobayashi. Do you prefer this version or the one we got?

    Yamato 2202

    The Yamato 2202 official site finally updated the character and mechanics pages, though amusingly they left out the Dreadnought. http://yamato2202.net/character_mechanic/ http://yamato2202.net/character_mechanic/index2.html Here's the mechanical pages. Character pages whenever I feel like. The usual Google translate disclaimers apply. So it's quite obvious the Neo Deusura has a lot more weapons than shown. Unfortunately given its length (730 meters without the front armor plate, whatever that means), it's unlikely we'll get a 1/1000 model. Bandai's probably not gonna make another Zoelguut-length model that's also wider, to my forever disappointment. Maybe we'll get a better idea if/when they release the mechanics art book. Dengeki Hobby has some bigger preview images from the 2202 website: http://hobby.dengeki.com/news/485199/ The Neo Deusura's shown to hold 15 "Gorland missiles" on the underside just as the info page said, so that's a pretty hefty armament especially when it can SMITE them right into your face. Speaking of which, upon closer inspection those Gostok swords are also part mace, since it looks like it has a hexagonal structure from the front. Glad we see the Gostok carrying different armament, though not exactly what I was expecting. The sword-maces more or less double the Gostok's length, and presumably use the usual missiles as propulsion if it's meant to be launched. I don't know why, but the mechs hitching a ride on the Cosmo Tiger II booster is amusing. I don't think that's how they're usually meant to be transported. They also seem to be mounting Cosmo Tiger II missiles on their back

    Funimation is releasing the official dubbed episodes online every week. You need an account with them to view the newest ones, but they'll release the episode to the general public in 1 or 2 weeks. Currently they've done up to episode 2. No news on the bluray yet.
