posted on by Sarah Nelkin
The final episode of the Space Battleship Yamato 2199 anime that aired on Sunday revealed that a brand new film for the anime has been green-lit for next year.
With Space Battleship Yamato 2199, director Yutaka Izubuchi (RahXephon) remade the classic space opera anime Space Battleship Yamato. The project debuted in Japan last April as a series of installments in theaters, but it was planned from the beginning as a television series as well. The first episode aired on television in April of this year, and the final installment of episodes played in a limited number of theaters in Japan starting on August 24, before running on television.
The original Space Battleship Yamato television anime series was dubbed and partly rewritten in English as Star Blazers.
