Where to begin
>lack of closeup detail shots
>stupid calligraphy on ships because ???
>flagrant underarmor product placement
>original characters from 2199 are just gone
Best way to tell the difference is to compare the pluto battle to the battle with gatlantis, where Andromeda shows up. No close-up detail shots, no shots of human/gamilon crew struggling in battle. It’s just CGI spaceships shooting CGI spaceships and it’s so dreadfully boring. In the Pluto battle you cut to human crews dying in battle, it gives you an emotional investment. There's no connection when there are no humans to relate to. The only part of the comet empire battle where you
feel engaged is when Andromeda shows up - because you get to see character reactions to it.
This is a Masterful recreation and EXPANSION on the original Anime series that started the Whole Anime craze we have seen since the 70. The second season in the original series was even better than the first.
The deviation from the original story is by far superior planning, and well executed.
The American voice actors on Funimation are not as dead on as I would hope. For one the Captain sounds a LOT more grizzled in Japanese. In the American actor choice you have someone sounding young.
Now the vast increase of firepower and the extensive explanation, all inter tied in is well
planned out. Currently I am up to Volume 5 direct import from Japan, and I have the American Funimation copies as well.... And each of the models they have released.
