A quick glance at the text and the word "missile" pops up. Perhaps some sort of missile frigate. Wonder whose ships are those in blue? Desslers command ship was dark blue, perhaps they're the emperors personal escort? Nice stuff.

Those around suggest the blue ships are the Imperial Guard's ships (a World War II equivalent would be the Waffen SS I suppose). Which bring's Dessler's Command Cruiser into a slightly different light come to think of it.

It does bring up interesting questions about Gamilas warship paint jobs though. Normally all the ships are basically the same color green. The battleships tend to have some additional colors on them (Schultz ship has a lighter color on the bottom with yellow trim. Dommel's ship is gray colored. Celestra's is sort of a purple is creme color, and Goer's has a whath of white).

However Goer's forces at Balum are some sort of camo scheme. The Imperial Guard seem to have dark blue ships. We've seen Deitz fighter was red (and there are instances of red painted ships in other series). Plus we have the three differently painted carriers shown on the Yamato2199.net site. A standard green, and Purple, and a blue carrier.

Could it be that different elements of the Gamilas government control different space fleet assets and are painted differently? Or that Theater commanders have some leyway in assigning paint jobs to their forces?

And yes, the blue ships are Gamilan SS.

I'm more interested in the characters in the lower-left of that scan. One-time characters maybe?

They've been seen more than once and have their own pages on Yamato2199.net

The woman (Miki Saijo) is the third person that takes over the radar when Yuki and Yuria are not on shift. http://yamato2199.net/character_miki.html

The man (Tetsuya Kitano) is the one would takes Kodai's or Nambu's gunnery chair when one of them is gone. http://yamato2199.net/character_kitano.html

A glimer of hope for those who, like me, have been wanting a proper artbook of Yamato 2199. SBY2199 Official Cells has been announced for a May 30th release. No details yet on price or number of pages. Beforethat, on April 10th, SBY2199 Guide Book DVD comes out, costing 980. This seems more like a magazine type thing, with a DVD with interviews and some promo material, geared to support the TV airing that starts a few days earlier, on April 7th.

So art and interviews about character art I assume. Maybe also mechanical art as well.

CORRECTION: "Official Cels" is actually "Official Settings (Character Sheets) Sourcebook" — this should include all of the characters and mecha (up to this point in the production), boasting extensive technical detail, plus interviews with the staff. Comes with a slipcase (which indicates this may be a hardcover). This is the modern equivalent to the hardcover books from the late '70s/early '80s. A4 size, horizontal (approximately 10"x7").

NOTE ON THE "BLUE" GAMILAS SHIPS: They are designated as belonging to the "Home Defense Fleet".

Guess we'll be geting an Analizer+Power Suit model. XD

Spoiler for first impressions:


I'm gonna sit down and catch my breath because even though this is the smallest trailer yet, it's the one that makes me want to go all the way to Japan in April just to watch it as soon as possible.

@August
As Google Translator is a bit... unreliable i find it hard to accept what it gives me here at face value.

"本日急遽第五章の70秒PVを公式HPにアップいたしました。長尺PVはもう少しかかりそうで、その間だ けでもお楽しみいただければと考えたためです。急な方針の変更大変申しわけありません。長尺PVはもう少々 お待ちくださいませ。 [IGぐめる]"
(from the yamato2199.net tweeter feeed)

It gives the impression a standard 2 minute trailer is yet to be released (the trailer announced a few days ago) but is slightly delayed, so they released this 70 second preview (the one shown at Shinjuku Picadilli) to bridge the gap. Is that remotely correct?

Also
Spoiler for line about Dessler:

So much to think about. (which would be more if I understood all that they said in the roughly 60 second trailer).

Spoiler for Chapter 5:

An accurate screenshot of me this evening (except for the cool room, uniform, logos, big screen and actually being on a spaceship )

I'm with you there. Having only a slight grasp on the japanese language sucks at times like these. D

I don't recall all of it correctly. As all I had to work with was the section about the manga on the old Star Blazers site by Tim Eldred.

Spoiler for Manga Gamilas (1975?):

Oh that is quite clear. The question is, who's side is Shima on (as I can't make out what he says due to limited knowledge of the language). I would say it has to do with issues between the Yamato Plan (get to Iscandar and back in one Earth year) verses Izumo Plan (Find a new planet for the human race to live).

I never liked Ito from the moment I say his smug looking face. He has the trope "smug snake" look. Also we will see if Roger Rambo is right about Hoshina

I don't even know who he is, but I know he's going to die. Out of all the male characters, he's the ONLY one that really looks like a generic, modern male character. He's also the most androgynous looking, bent legs, with a head more rounded than even the other younger male characters, huge soulful eyes and the least well defined chin of the males. Along with his hanging hair hanging down completely, as if pulled down by gravity.

To make matters worse, he's also got a very generic drab grey outfit that doesn't seem to suggest it's tied with any function critical enough to warrant a bright outfit so you could better recognize a main character in it.

This guy exists for one purpose. To die in a sympathetic/tragic manner. It's only a matter of when.




Edit: Shima Daisuke has also been pretty radically changed.

Original derpy manly 30ish looking(despite being 20) space hero

Swarthy boy space cadet hero.

Actually, it's more like a Power Loader... Didn't anyone else get the ALIENS reference, here? "Get away from Yuria... You BITCH!"

Yes. They had to meet a deadline, and were only able to cut a 70-second version in time. The Tweet requests, "Please wait a little longer for the full-length PV."
