Yamato Rising

SDB muses:

Tomorrow UPS will deliver my latest DVD order, and I'll get to watch yet another incarnation of Yamato in anime. It will, at least, be a bit more realistic. Or maybe not. They're not going to lift it into space, but a 13 year old girl is going to single-handedly lift it from the depths and move it back to a Japanese port.

Now I'm curious: when the girl/god in question raises the Yamato, will it be in one piece, or will it be in historically accurate shape (i.e., in two chunks, with the main turrets out of their barbettes)?

Considering that it's a god doing the raising, she can probably repair the damage while she's at it. Maybe a new coat of paint. Buff out the dings...

1 I'm sure it will be in one piece, and there will be no evidence of battle damage. I'll post about it when the time comes.

2 OK, when they show the underwater shots, the ship is in two pieces and is definitely rusting away. It looks to me like they based those scenes on photos from when the wreck was found.

As to what happens later, it all makes sense, and when Yamato surfaces it is restored. But I won't go into details because it's a spoiler.

Ep 9 is the best one since ep 3.

3 Just wait until ep.12. Then we'll talk about the best episodes. ^_^

4 I guess people's tastes vary. Ep 12 (the God convention) was good, but IMHO far from being the best episode in the series.

Or maybe you mean the 12th broadcast episode? I won't be able to watch that until my copy of the 4th DVD ships (probably in about 2 weeks).

5 No, I see that the tastes do differ. BTW, I skipped ep.10 entirely after seeing the 30 seconds or so.
