Why did all mention of this series immediately cease as soon as it ended?

When it was on-going, there were hourly threads, with elaborate charts explaining why you'd be a sap to not watch this series. I held off, waiting for all the episodes to come out. They finally did, but then I come to /a/, and it's as if any record of this anime has been erased from time.

Was the finale that bad or something?

No, seriously. It's unnatural for a series with as big a following as this to suddenly fall off the map like this.

This makes me sad.

/a/ wasn't like this five years ago.
>>
>>100526447
Yes it was. Fuck off.

I loved Yamato 2199. I don't want to talk about it every fucking day like some spastic eva fanboy. Kill yourself.
>>
>>100526545
>Yes it was. Fuck off.
No, it wasn't. The Endless Yurifag Summer is extremely recent. Back then, /a/ talked about good shows even after they'd stopped airing, such as Code Geass and Spice and Wolf.
>>
>>100525553
>Was the finale that bad or something?
Yes. Throw the last 5 or so episodes in the dumpster and the series becomes actually good.

>Strike Witchers was longer than 5 years ago, that fanbase has been posting threads practically every damn day since. You are full of shit.
Strike Witches faggots were three losers posting the same images every day.

Modern /a/ is filled with hundreds of yurifags making dozens of threads each hour on a handful of different yuri series.

It's obvious that you're new here and are trying to defend your shitposting ways.

Last episodes were underwhelming. The show peaked somewhere in the middle, around dem robot/psionic witch episodes.
>>
>Was the finale that bad or something?
The finale was conclusive, unlike LN or manga adaptations in which the anime gets an original or otherwise arbitrary ending meant to disappoint everyone.
>>
Because it was good. Surprisingly few attention given to moe, no highschoolers, few gratuitous fanservice, fairly realist characters, and a story with numerous twists.

/a/ wants unidimensional moeblob, fanservice everywhere, and easy to understand plot with few twists like Kill la Kill.

Even when it aired, though it was certainly the best anime of its season, nobody on /a/ talked about it. It's too good for /a/, in a sense.
>>

>unidimensional moeblob

Yamato in a nutshell.
>>
>>100527078
so how does the ending of the LN or manga compare to the open ended 'earth revived' of the anime?
>>100527084
It was bloody good, but the last few episodes reduced it to just great. Still, top show
>>
>>100526786
I thought the device would help to restore the planet's ecosystem. You know, with super advanced SCIENCE and taking some time. Not right away right with magic. That was pretty bad. Also, the whole thing was way too cheesy for its own good. Still, other than that and all the bullshit with the brother, the show was fantastic.

Usually sellout right after release so you need to preorder early. And rarely get reproduced.

Just the ass.
Nips love it because the show glorify its WW2 flagship namesake and tell an alternate tale where Yamato actually turn the tide in the war.
>>
>>100528108
If you want it grab it now. I think that finding one will be one pain in the ass in a month or two. Super popular ones are sold out on preorders.

This Akira is 100$ including shipping on amiami and I think there are or will be other yamato girls. I'd like to get that alien pilot.

>>100528540

Eh, the nationalist peen stroking wasn't worse than your average American blockbuster movie, and to the shows advantage they were fighting space Hitler and everyone knows Space Hitler is fair game. It also had a nice message of overcoming your differences and working together.

>>100529977
Convenience, mostly. Then I checked Nubles' site to see what was taking them so long and they said the batch was delayed because they fucked up the encodes for several episodes in their initial releases and needed to redo them. So then it became a quality issue.
Now it's shifted to a lack of interest.

ooookay.
>>100530297
There's a difference between a living show that's watched by people and cancerous horsecrap like cankolle.

And there's nothing bad about the first.
Yamato deserves a bit more popularity than it has. I almost skipped the show thinking it was nothing worth attention but pics of Akira baited me into watching it.
>>
>>100530424
Yamato fanbase and kancolle is one and same anon.
>>
>>100530188
They were calling him fukushou, it's Japanese for vice-commander/deputy/2nd in command/executive officer etc. subs just decided to sub in the US naval XO rather than the air force CV, which is pretty fitting considering the naval theme.
>>
>>100530309
Eh, I used Femme for the BDs.
>>
>>100530424
It is an actual military rank, don't blame us.
>>
>>100530424
It's just that Yamato is a completed story, while all the others aren't.
There's barely anything to discuss about Yamato. With the other craps, you can just post a picture, or ship X with Y, and you have a "discussion". I'd rather having that shit stay off my Yamato threads.
Remember, general threads are for fag, cancerous fag at that. We don't need that shit.

It was pretty good but it's massively over-hyped.

I went into it expected something similar to LoGH (political intrigue, moral dilemmas) instead it was essentially a shounen with ass.....lot's of glorious ass.

You mean the same CG and S&W which gets near daily threads still?

You mean currently airing shows which just might happen to be SOL are more frequently discussed as this board is topical and this happens to take precedence over older shows which have long finished airing and where the circle jerk has gotten tired?!

No, they were shit. /a/ was beyond redemption already when Geass aired.

Yamato was great however, 10/10 everyone should watch.

Yes, it was. There's always been a big /u/ following, it's just that there are more shows that have come out with more /u/ content for us to talk about.

The main problem is the release schedule. Baseline is, only series that have a weekly schedule AND get weekly fansubs/scanlations on time will get regular threads. With weekly releases, there's always an anon who just finished the latest ep and he's gonna make a thread if there isn't one already, which results in high thread "density" within a week.

For the majority of the run, Yamato only got new releases with a few months, when a new BD came out, meaning anyone interested will watch all mew episodes in one go. With 3 eps per BD, that means only get a third or new threads that a weekly series would get, focused around the time when a new BD comes out, then it's 2-3 months of almost nothing again, with the occasional straggler.

Last stretch (4-5 episodes) finally had the weekly tv airing overtake tha BD, but at that point no sub group lifter their ass to do it, so again, no buzz. Threads got spread thin even more, between those who watched the raws and those who waited for BDs.

Similar thing happened to Isekai no Seikishi Monogatari, which also went through schedule hell.

tl;dr Month long waits for releases means a series is pretty much dead in the water as far as regular 4chan discussion is concerned, unless it has some extraordinary troll potential.

Fuck, just earlier today there was a great thread about GunSmith Cats (in which I learned something new about how Rally got her name). There are plenty of oldfags hanging around, you just need the right thread to bring them out of hiding.

Just ignore him. Is probably the same shitposter who makes the daily old vs new anime threads claiming everything nowadays is "moeshit".

>>100525553

It's a fine 7/10 series. Remake > original series + continuations. But, that revival at the end was stupid, I know miracles and super magic, but it felt cheap as fuck considering how many others died. Main bad guy was really weak as well, his entire motivation was a delusion anyone in that position could tell was an impossible feat, and then the shitty Iscander bitch doesn't just up and tell him to fuck off and die because his dream of peaceful universe is only setting it on fire through subjugation.

I'd have also liked it to be a good 6 episodes longer. There was much to tell us about their expansions into other galaxies, would have been nice for some standard daily life of each races non military.

The original is really bad by today standards (not just the animation etc), but the story and character package (and the sequels). It's just that it started and helped move the space opera forward for a while and countless other series got a leg up and stole from it.

No, that's wrong.

Yamato S2 > Be Forever Yamato > Remake >Yamato S1 > The New Voyage > Final Yamato > Farwell to Space Battleship Yamato > Yamato S3
