Space Battleship Yamato 2022 is a seven-part film project that is a sequel to 2012’s Space Battleship Yamato 2199, which also consists of seven anime films. Space Battleship Yamato 2199 also received a TV adaption, which ran for 26 episodes in 2013.
Space Battleship Yamato 2022 takes place three years after the Yamato’s return from Iscandar. Earth has been restored and humanity signed a peace treaty with the Garmillas species. During a period of reconstruction, Earth develops a state-of-the-art defense fleet and pursues military expansion. However, the galaxy’s shaky peace is threatened by the Gatlantis civilization, which forces the Yamato crew to embark on a new voyage.
Xebec will produce the TV adaptation, with director Nobuyoshi Habara (Fafner in the Azure) and scriptwriter Harutoshi Fukui (Harlock: Space Pirate) reprising their staff roles. Assistant director Makoto Kobayashi (Dragon’s Heaven), character designer Nobuteru Yuki (Orange), music composer Akira Miyagawa (Mazinger Edition Z: The Impact!), and mecha designers Junichirou Tamamori (Space Dandy Season 2) and Yasushi Ishizu (Mobile Suit Gundam 0083: Stardust Memory) will also be part of the staff.
More details about the TV adaptation will be shared at a later time.
