If I haven’t already, I recommend the living daylights out of this series, new and old!

Not car-related, but with the second Yamato 2202/(Star Blazers 2202 in ‘Murica) movie out, the only part they needed to get right was the launch seen, and they fraking killed it. Out of the entire film, this 30 seconds was the only part I desired to see.

Here’s a sped-up gif comparison of the same scenes from 1978 and 2017:

1978's Farewell to Space Battleship Yamato: In the Name of Love
The glorious modern retake in 2017's Space Battleship Yamato 2202: Warriors of Love

The best part: I get the same feeling of excitement, hype, and nostalgia seeing both versions side-by-side.
