Evolution of Space Battleship Yamato (Star Blazer) by StrikeFire Evolution of Space Battleship Yamato (Star Blazer) by StrikeFire
I got bored and decided to make a side by side comparison of the remake of my favorite anime to it's original 1978 counterpart. I'm sure for some this is quite a nostalgia trip.

Rights to Space Battleship Yamato and all screenshots used in this chart are from Space Battleship Yamato (1978) and Yamato 2199. SBY is property of Yoshinobu Nishizaki.

Sometimes when doing a remake, the only thing you can do is improve the quailty of the image. The angle, design, ect. are already perfect.

The Remake series can be found easily via Google search, on sites such as PinoyAnime, GoodAnime.com and Animeflavor.

I like how they made the remake since 2014 will be the 40th anniversary of the original Yamato anime.

You got the release date for the originals series wrong; the original Space Battleship Yamato came out in Japan in 1974. Apart from that, the compare and contrast is well showed what changed and what did not. Well done.
