The Nihon Review - Anime Reviews & Editorials

Explorers of Time and Space

Today we have a respite from the usual trend of cute girls in high school settings anime to explore two adventure anime. Once rather ubiquitous, these kinds of shows now seem endangered, so director Umetsu Yasuomi has decided to merge cute girls doing cute things with a rather dark adventure series. Shinmaru reviews this concoction known as Galilei Donna and the results seem mixed. The other show is a literal blast from the past with a full blown remake of Space Battleship Yamato (known as Star Blazers in the West) called Space Battleship Yamato 2199.

    was afraid that Shin would close of the review without mentioning that complete flop of a finale. Man, what a disater Galilei Donna was. Should probably finish Yamato 2199 too.
