SBY2199 Movie: The Ark of The Stars discussion

Discuss Space Battleship Yamato 2199 plot, episodes, characters, and mecha here. ***Spoilers***

  • The Japanese are on the move again. Yamato2199.net updated with a lot of stuff for this film. There is a new trailer as well as some images and storyline information. The umage shows Yamato escorted by her remaining fighters over a planet...with a red, white, and black Gamilas battlecarrier as escort.


    Also a mention an "Impact Flame Gun" on the Comet Empire ship.

    Looks to me like the battlecarrier is a Gelvades-class ship like the Darold that carried the drill missile plane in Domel's fleet in Episodes 19 and 20.

    Definitely going to be the Magna-flame gun seen in the Battle of Saturn in Yamato 2 / Comet Empire. Animenewsnetwork's translation of the news specifically mentions "the 'Flame Direct Attack Cannon' that can transcend space". If that is anything other than the magna-flame gun I'd be amazed.

  • The preview also had a big shot of Mikage Kiryuu, which I hope gives a bit of stuff to do to flesh her character out a bit.

  • So from the poster and the trailer we get that the Gamilas fleet has at least two battlecarriers. One the red camo painted one seen on the older poster, and a green one. Also what would seem to be the purple carrier from the Rainbow Cluster battle that somehow survived along with its onboard wing commander (Burger).

    The Comet Empire fleet is coming with at least one carrier, escorting cruisers and destroyers, and basically a Medaruusa type ship.

    It is hard to grasp exactly what is going on, though Yamato seems to encounter a forest that has the IJN Yamato sitting it in, much like Yamato was sitting in the surface of the Earth just before launch.

    Also there is the repeated image of helmets on rifles on the Moon that pans up to the red Earth (also battleship Kirishima and likely Hijikata waiting for Yamato's return).

    One thing I think will happen in this film is a recreation of the classic picture of Kodai and Yuki with her slipping his hand. We saw the picture in her room in the last two episodes of Yamato 2199, and this film takes place just before that. In the trailer we see Shima with both Yamamoto and Mori on the observation deck in what looks like a picture taking session. It is the location for the old classic picture of Kodai and Yuki.
