    interesting if any "anime" could be made easily into live action, then that'd be the one to do it. i mean it wouldn't be THAT much different then star trek, would it?

    Not often. Good thing there's a lot more to Star Trek than ship battles. Anyway, Yamato as live action seems like it could have a lot of potential.

    well as long as it has a high enough budget, i mean, if they can pull off transformers, not once, but twice, whether or not you like the movies or not, one must admit that they did a good job on the transformers themselves, love or hate the designs, they still made them believable.

    so with saying that, making a giant battleship into a "space ship" should be easy, for japan. :)

    I used to WORSHIP this show, and haven't seen it since I was a little kid. Those 31 seconds--especially those opening bars of the theme song--just kicked my ass back to my childhood.

    WAVE. MOTION. GUN.
