Classic Otaku passion from the ’70s revives?

New Attempt at Yamato Anime Project Annouced

…the 73-year-old producer of the Space Battleship Yamato science-fiction anime franchise, has announced his newest attempt to revive the franchise on Thursday, over 25 years… Nishizaki’s new project is set in 2220, or 21 years after the first Yamato story…

Ray’s take: You know, folks at Gainax were burning with passion over Yamato shows and these folks made Gunbuster in the 80’s and Gunbuster was the Otaku’s passion in the 80’s, which in some ways were inspired (as far as I see it) by Yamato in the 70’s. So are we going to be inspired again? Who knows? I’m not for another imperial/right-wing Japanese-favorite show, but the toy/display model I got was nice enough.
