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.

I'm a hardcore Anime Fan and I'm proud of it. I know so many things and I've acquired so much knowledge you wouldn't believe. But my love is anime. I've been drifting in this world for so long that I don't even know what an anchor means. I've seen so many shows that I've lost count. The only thing I'm sure of myself is that I care for the lowly and disenfranchised. I hate the rich and powerful and I love what I do, or what I can do. I like anime and I don't mind watching different types of shows. I have experience in different types of Japanese animation. I would be called an "expert" in a bizzaro world. One day, I'd like to start a revolution. I love the US, pizza, beer, sashimi, Chinese food, and steak. But I love freshly baked bread more than a well-aged steak. In reality, if I were born Japanese I'd be a real, hardcore Otaku. I love to love and I can hate strongly. I'm passionate in nature and I don't mind shedding tears.
