Late yesterday afternoon, while this intrepid reporter was heading home from work, Funimation UK took to Twitter to announce that Star Blazers: Space Battleship Yamato 2199 would begin streaming on their service. Though previously announced it had not been confirmed for the UK until yesterday, and began streaming almost immediately.
Synopsis: The power-hungry Gamilas have taken over Earth, and only a distant planet has the key to save humans from extinction. Granted the schematics of a high-powered engine, the Space Battleship Yamato is built to traverse the galaxy and retrieve hope for their survival. Battling extraterrestrial forces along the way, the crew of the Yamato will stop at nothing to save their home.
You can watch Star Blazers: Space Battleship Yamato 2199 in streaming form on Funimation Now.
