Looks like one of those classic mecha animes.
pass.


Ignorant fool. The only part you got right was classic.
Seriously, mecha is not even in the genres and as far as I know there are no mechas in the series.

My question about what's up with the movies still stands though, can anyone help me clear that up?

So, what's up with there being 6 or 7 movies in the MAL DB now? This thread only talks about one (+ the TV series) so I'm a bit confused. Have that many movies really been announced?

too old fashion for me xD

Lol for some reason the 26-episode one looks interesting

For some reason? It's only probably one of if not thee most influential sci-fi anime series out there... lol.

To be exactly, the 1977's Yamato movie is already done this... The 1978's movie is just a merely continuation, and later the second series rebooted it due to the fans' rage.

Whoa, a fake preview has actually been right on all accounts so far.

Though I highly doubt some of the other things on it will be announced.
