In the year 2199, Earth faces its greatest crisis. Due to unrelenting bombings by the alien race known as "Gamilas," the planet can no longer sustain its inhabitants. In exactly one year, humanity is set to become extinct. In desperation, the people of Earth establish the Earth Defense Force, their last defense against the power-hungry Gamilas Empire. However, humanity finds a glimmer of hope after receiving a message from the mysterious planet Iscandar, which offers them a device that would restore Earth to its former glory. With salvation in sight, the Earth Defense Force calls on the prolific Space Battleship Yamato and swiftly assembles a crew to make the 168,000 light-year trek to Iscandar and receive their aid. Among the crew are young officers Susumu Kodai and Daisuke Shima, along with several other newly promoted leaders, all under the command of the distinguished Captain Juuzou Okita. Forced to learn how to handle the ship's innovative technology while dealing with the onslaught of Gamilas fleets, the inexperienced cast of Uchuu Senkan Yamato 2199 must summon every inch of their resolve to survive the many hardships aboard the Yamato and complete their mission: to save humanity before it's too late.

Energetic_Nova

A really amazing modern remake of the classic anime Yamato. Unlike most remakes, I would probably recommend this over the original.

zangfang

Mixes a great main storyline with interesting side-stories to create a truly epic show that stands above the vast majority of it’s genre.

🎄SantaDour🎄

A space opera whose strength lays in its humanistic writing that shows how the crew is always steadfast in their journey through the cosmos.

jojovonjo

Love this. Great animation and that old school sci-fi feel.

Drax

A damn great remake love the cast only problem is that the crew needed more downtime they are too frigid

Miiyo

No super strong feelings towards it personally but its guranteed a fun time for anyone looking for an epic Sci-fi adventure.

ThatSnobbyBrat

Aside from being one of the best remakes, a definitive space soap opera alongside the likes of Legend of the Galactic Heroes and Terra E.

    "We, who hurt each other so terribly, will sit here licking each other's wounds. We damaged goods will each seek the other out in comfort. If you are to die tomorrow, I'm fine with my life ending then as well. But if you want to live for me for one more day,I'll go on living with you today as well. And thus begins a tale of kindred, bound by their scars. Soaked in red and written in black, a story of blood. One of which I'll never speak. Our very own, precious as it is, story of scars. And I have no intention of reciting it to anyone."
