A couple weeks ago, we were made aware of an anime that sadly isn't making over here yet. A friend of ours has gotten the series (well, the six episodes released so far) on Japanese Blu-ray, which thanks to the simplified region scheme, is also playable here. So for the last couple weeks we've been watching:

Yes, they're remaking the original Space Battleship Yamato. And it is good. They're staying very true to the original plot and story, but cleaning things up to make more sense. I really hope it gets an official release over here.
