The Comso Falcons seem a little overpowered in the anti-shipping role.

The last Chapter (7) with episodes 23 - 26 will be in theaters August 24th. They should start on TV on September 8th - September 29th and come out on BD and DVD on October 25th.

I'd expect a trailer for Chatper 7 soonish. It is only 4 weeks away until it is in theaters and they usually show the first half (8-10 minutes) of the episode (23) the week or two before it comes out. Usually with the trailer being out a week before that...so best guess we'll have a 2 minute trailer in a week or two.

So about a month 'til we the final episodes start coming out. Better than waiting three more months naturally.

So I just saw episodes 19 to 22 myself:

Spoiler for Episodes 19-22:

A man! They'll do a figure of a man?! Seemed like they'd do every female on the show and then stop because it was years later. I'm pretty sure there are some women out there that want Kodai and Shima figures, and probably a dozen more than that that want Desler and Domel.

That isn't just any man, comrade. That's fucking Captain Juno Okita. Though I can agree that there would be those who would want a figure of Kodai or Shima I think Okita deserves it well since he Yamato's iconic figure and probably the hallmark of all great anime captains. We also rarely see figures of elderly characters and I think Okita would be befitting.

Though I'm happy Megahouse make a figure of Niimi and Melda I hope they will make Starsha and Yurisha as well.

It's Okita Juzo. Consider it as a replica of the bronze statue that was supposedly had been erected to commemorate his epic journey to Iscandar.

Gah! I knew I misspelled his name. But I hope Megahouse gives him a more dynamic pose than on the art.

So all in all, what is the likelihood they'll do remakes of the Yamato sequels or maybe even something new altogether?

I know there hasn't been any formal statement yet obviously, and I'd be a bit surprised if there was any hinting from the producers (aside from the things we've seen in the series, like White Comet Empire ships and characters that were originally in future Yamato productions and not in the original series), but what about volume sales? Since this is Yamato, it should automatically garner good sales but just how good exactly?

I could never get it straight what's considered as the minimum sales to green-light a sequel/continuation, but well over 25,000 copies for each Blu-Ray volume sounds really really good.

Getting Nana Mizuki was definately a marketing coup. They announced her as part of their music lineup just before the show started airing on TV and it was big news.
