Bandai’s Home Video Release of Space Battleship Yamato 2202 Won’t Include English Subs
Bandai Visual confirmed with ANN on Friday that its home video release of the Uchū Senkan Yamato 2202: Ai no Senshi-tachi (Space Battleship Yamato 2202: Warriors of Love or Star Blazers 2202: Warriors of Love) anime sequel project will not feature English subtitles.
Bandai Visual‘s Blu-ray Disc release of the seven-part Space Battleship Yamato 2199 film project in 2012-2013 (and later 2015 compilation film) did include English subtitles, although the DVD release did not.
The StarBlazers.com website later released the anime project under the name Star Blazers 2199 on DVD and Blu-ray Disc with English and Spanish subtitles starting in 2014.
Space Battleship Yamato 2202: Warriors of Love is a seven-part theatrical film project. The first film opened in theaters on Saturday and also began streaming online for a fee on the same day. The film will be available to rent digitally starting on March 11, and will ship on DVD and Blu-ray Disc on March 24.
The second film will open in theaters in Japan on June 24, and will also begin streaming for a fee on the same day. Digital rentals of the new film will start on July 8, and the standard edition Blu-ray Disc and DVD will ship on July 28.
