“A journey from zero”.
The world of the Space Battleship Yamato remake series that was depicted in Space Battleship 2199 and 2202 is not just an updated version of the original, but a literal world built on metaphor and satire of our reality. It is a world of fragmentation, misunderstanding and a life of confusion at the hands of people who are bewildered by the unwanted changes. It is a mirror image that offers hints and hope for those of us who tend to get stuck in these harsh times. Before watching our latest film, 2205: A New Departure, we will take you on a journey to re-examine the world from the beginning. Not from 1…but from 0. Arriving on the moon, settling on Mars, the first contact with an alien civilization. It’s a journey of the unknown, branching out from reality and venturing out of the galaxy with the new footage. Fans, be warned, if you underestimate that this is a compilation, your eyes will spin. And if you haven’t seen the series, don’t miss your chance to board the legendary ship.
