Uchu Senkan Yamato 2199 (2012)
Better than the Original
First off, thank you Bandai and the production team for bringing this back.
I watched the original when I was 10-12 years old, so on a personal level it was nostalgic. That being said, the story has been modernized in a very technical way to add "onion like" layers to the level of realism.
The combat scenes were the finest space battle scenes I have ever seen in live action or Anime, in their detail, Better than the New Battlestar Galactica IMHO. The CGI and 2D animation was blended masterfully.
The Story has been updated in a way to fill in the realism gaps without stepping on the Original. The Characters have real and individual motives and the antagonists are no exception.
You do not have to have watched the original, the movie, or even anime, to thoroughly enjoy this series.
