Gamilans are facing their biggest hurdle yet: their planet is dying at an alarming pace. To save his people and relocate them to habitable land, Aberdt Desler feigns submission to the oppressive rule of the planet Galman, which houses a race almost identical to the Gamilans. Desler's true objective is to seize control and accelerate the salvation of his nation. However, as Gamilans begin their migration, an unidentified massive power attacks them and completely warps their twin planet—Iscandar, Queen Starsha's home.

Meanwhile, Earth is celebrating the success of the magnificent Space Battleship Yamato and its heroic crew. A new generation of promising recruits joins Yamato and its two new support ships, led by Yuki Mori and Shirou Sanada. But not everyone agrees with the past decisions of its captain, Susumu Kodai. During the Yamato's six-month-long training mission and diplomatic meeting with the Gamilans, the crew learns of the recent catastrophe, and against all orders, Kodai commands the fleet to Iscandar to aid the surviving refugees.

I am loving this series and has quickly become one of my favorites since I picked up 2199 in 2017. Disclaimer, I have not watched the original Yamato seasons and have only seen the modern rendition of the series.

After the events of 2202, Earth is recovering from its battle against Gatlantis and the planet Gamilas is dying. An unknown faction attacks Gamilas and the Cosmo Navy is hesitant to enter the conflict becuase its in a weakened state after 2202. This is where the story of 2205 begins. The events of 2199 and 2202 reverberate throughout the universe and plot threads from those ...

2205: A New Journey is a decent continuation of the series, adapting the original Space Battleship Yamato sequels for a contemporary audience. For anyone that is a fan of the series, original or remakes, this is a good sequel as any and rights a lot of the missteps seen in 2202 Warriors of Love. That said, the 8 episodes of 2205 attempt to do too much with too little time. It has also reached the point where the series feels like it is beginning to buckle under the weight of its legacy.

The major strengths of the Space Battleship Yamato remakes are still evident. The music ...

Uchuu Senkan Yamato 2205: Aratanaru TabidachiAnime (2021)

Rather an odd set of extra episodes or 2 films as it seems to be broadcast in some formats. Here I saw it in 8 episodes, with the first 4 setting the scene and the second 4 is the climax to a very rushed ending.

The story is set 3 years after the last season and ending of the time fault to a new fleet lead by this now very old but famous ship with some sister ships.

The art is the same as before, it really hasn't changed at all unless you look really hard. Art isn't the ...
