A while back, Nobuteru Yuuki posted a tweet where he announced he'd be releasing a book with Yamato 2199 materials at the upcoming Comiket 86. Having purchased a similarly released book with his works for SPC Herlock ~ The Endless Odyssey ~ Outside Legend (that's a mouthfull) i just knew we were in for quite a treat. What i couldn't even begin to imagine was...how big, no...HUGE...that treat would be. Yesterday, a press release on the (i believe) publisher's site, Anime Style, followed by Yamato 2199's Official Site, layed it out for us.

For starters, it's not one book. But two. (Deja vu?!)
Under the collective title "SBY2199 Nobuteru Yuuki ~ Collection of Original Pictures", the set comprises 1 color book with 392 pages and 1 b&w book with 502 pages, both B5 size. Yes, your math is not wrong. That's a total of 894 pages TOTAL. (And not that many with text) That's about as much as all the previous art books combined. The price? 8000 yen +tax. Yes, it's high but considering the treasure trove it is and the sheer volume of it, it's actually a bargain.

Now, the hard part. This won't be available in retail, at least no plans are currently in place for that. It will be released on 3 separate venues:

- First, at the aforementioned Comiket 86, which will take place from August 15th to the 17th. It will be sold with an exclusive bonus called "Collection of Color Original Pictures ~ Episodes 7 & 20 (B5 size, 12 pages);

- In September, both Yamato Crew and Anime Style will released the set on their respective online shops and, like the Comiket 86 release, each will have an exclusive bonus. Yamato Crew will have 4 Color Reproductions, A4 size; while Anime Style will have a "Collection of Color Original Pictures ~ Episode 26 (B5 size, 12 pages).

So, unless you manage to somehow aquire all 3, you'll miss something. But at least you'll own a remarkable piece of Yamato art. The press release can be viewed, along with a small sample of content on both sites below.

Stuff is happening on yamato2199.net

They have a new image that seems related to the December film. I want it.



I count 23 Comso Falcons and the one Cosmo Zero. This would suggest they lost 13 Cosmo Falcons and Kodai's Cosmo Zero is still damaged from over Gamilas.

Big update at the 2199 Official Site and Yamato Crew.

Most important, a new 30 second teaser trailer for Ark of the Stars:



Next, the reveal of new cast members, a new key art illustration. and a revised story synopsis.

"In 2199.

After reaching its destination, Iscandar, and receiving the Cosmo Reverse System, Yamato prepares to leave the Great Magellanic Galaxy.

But as they reach the outer edge of the LMG, it encounters a mysterious task force. The commander identifies himself as Goran Dagamu of the Gutaba Expeditionary Rapid Assault Force, under supervision of the Great Capital City, "Gatlantis", and he demands Yamato to surrender.

Yamato wants to avoid the battle and hurry back to Earth but Dagamu's onslaught increases as he unleashes a power of a beam weapon capable of transcending space.

The name of his weapon - the Impact Flame Gun. It is the latest weapon of proud Gatlantis.

Yamato is saved in the nick of time by warping, but they wander into a different space bathed in a pale grey light.

As if controled by an outside will, Yamato's rudder turns, and they are invited to a mysterious planet.

Kodai, Kiryu, Sawamura, Niimi and five of Aihara's men descend to the planet to collect information. Once on the ground, they come across something that shouldn't be there, an ancient war ship (boat).

Dagamu warps after Yamato by following its space wake, reaching the grey colored space. The planet shining in front of his eyes, where Yamato was invited, is the very treasure planet he had been looking for.

Dagamu heads for the planet with his Flame Gun in order to burn the annoying Yamato."

Very interesting. So the Flame Gun is being brought out. Makes me wonder about the Cometine Fleet.

Also a key problem for Yamato in this film: No Wave Motion Gun.

That was a pretty cool teaser .

Okita .

I assume Dagamu is the one with the sword?

I wonder who the new Gamilan is? I also don't recognize the girl in the blue suit with the backpack .

What are you doing Shima ?

Kodai and Yuki blushing .

The girl I think was in the last few episodes as Niimi's bridge replacement and later was working on the Cosmo Reverse system.

The latest arrivals from Japan.





The larger Dommel's battleship will be used fo displays at certain games, as will Yamato.

The two smaller models can be used for gaming, as they will fit in our typical three inch hexes. They also might seem roughly in scale with our smaller miniatures. Especially Dommel's ship form Megahouse, since it is almost in scale with the Star Blazers Fleet Battle System miniatures from Musashi Enterprises.

Dommel's battleship (from Megahouse) used with Star Blazers Fleet Battle System miniatures (from Musashi Enterprises)

(The hexmat is from Hotmatz and uses three inch hexes.)

When "Voyage of Rememberance" comes out on BD on November 21st, it will have English subtitles.

http://yamato2199.net/about/goods.html

No word yet on the BD release of "Ark of the Stars", but if it follows the same pattern, it should come out around January 17th.

In the meantine, there are lots of books and models and "toys" coming out this season. No new fighters, but several of the smaller Bandai model kits as well as all the Rainbow Cluster Battle carriers from Megahouse (with tiny fighters and bombers as well).

About the only 1/1000 scale Gamilas ship they have not done yet is Desler's huge battleship. It may not be as long as Domel's shipm but it is wider. Then there are the Gatlantis ships that will almost certainly be on their was next year after the film comes out.


Also there is talk of a American live action movie titled "Star Blazers" having been green-lit for 2017-18 release.

This appeared (someplace) on Twitter. 3D graphics of the new ships to be used in the up coming Ark to the Stars movie. (Gotten via the Yamato2199 facebook page)

Looks like, Yamato found that other craft they use to use all the time. (also the Wave Motion Gun is sealed up in this movie).

The Gamilas have a Battlecarrier with a new paint job.

The Comet Empire ships seen in Episode 11 (which were hand-drawn rather than CGI) get 3D CG images to match those of Earth and Gamilas.

And they get their new flagship, armed with the "Impact Flame Gun".

Actually that recon boat was only used in the incursion to find the Reflex Gun on Pluto. Because it didn't get to be used this time but they liked the little bugger, they decided to make a design upgrade and use it in the movie. Makes sense, since both the Seaguls are out of comission.

Also, looking at the 3D model schematics, they did quite some design changes from the hand drawn ships in episode 11 to the 3D models. Gonna have to take a look at the Mecha Collection model to see which they are closer to.

We are less than a week away from the release of the compellation film "Voyage of Rememberance". News of more model kits and 1/8t scale Yamato Girl has been announced. And there are daily promotional videos leading up to the film's release.

But, we are still about two months away from "Ark of the Stars" release, and I imagine some news about "future projects".

I am hoping for more details and information as we get closer to 2015.

While the wait is not bad, the waiting, oh the waiting.

Things are happening. "Voyage of Rememberance" comes out, but the hype is for "Ark of the Stars"

A trailer for instance (I really action packed trailer)

The Comet Empire theme is in full force.
