Three years since the return of the legendary Space Battleship Yamato, Earth has begun rebuilding itself and has made peace with the Gamilans. However, this recovery comes at the cost of utilizing the forbidden Wave Motion technology.

Meanwhile, the notorious former crew members of the Yamato, who have each gone their separate ways, receive a psychic message from the mysterious Goddess Teresa. She urges them to return to their beloved ship and travel to the distant planet Terezart. They are promised a revolutionary power to combat the unprecedented threat of the relentless Gatlantis Empire, who are approaching Earth with all but innocent intentions.

Unable to resist her plea, the crew reassembles and sets sail on another perilous intergalactic voyage, one that will test their sheer courage and versatility in the face of an even greater foe.

*Spoiler Free*

I was nearly deterred from watching Uchuu Senkan Yamato 2202 due to the critical reviews alone. I am so glad I watched it anyway, and am writing this review to tell you that it is worth it.

I think many of the negative reviews are due to the fact that 2202 is different from 2199 in several ways. If you were expecting the fun, exciting adventure of 2199 to continue with another journey across the stars with your favorite characters, you will be disappointed.

I think people need to calm down, it really isn't as bad as people think. Yes, it has a lot of copy-and-paste space fights but then the source it is based off is ancient compared to the shows people compare it with. The story I can admit was a bit heart-gushing compared to the previous one and is effectively the exact same storyline essentially but with a more powerful enemy.

As the credits finally began to roll for the last time of Yamato 2202 and Yamato Yori ai wo Komete played, I felt a sense of relief that this dreadful re-imagining of the 1978 Space Battleship Yamato II had reached its ill fated conclusion. I had gone into 2202 with incredibly high hopes after the spectacular Space Battleship Yamato 2199 introduced me to this wonderful universe. After completing 2199, I went back and watched nearly every single Yamato series and movie (season 3 is the sole exception here with no decent subtitles existing to my knowledge) I could get my hands on, eager to immerse ...
