When it comes to timeless anime, Space Battleship Yamato is one of the most prominent names you will see. And with old and timeless anime comes several spin-offs and remakes.
With the retro space aesthetics and animation ahead of its time, it is a show that tugs at the heartstrings of all veteran otakus. As much as we love its old style, we like seeing the new stuff in such franchises now and then.
Space Battleship Yamato 2205: The New Voyage revealed the first installment of its upcoming two-part movie series premiering on October 8th, 2021.

The visual poster features Abelt Dessler looking remorseful with a gun in his hand. It puts up many questions as to why he is giving that expression or why there is a gun in his hand.
