While I am certainly not sobbing my eyes out to this (I knew this was going to happen), I do think that it was executed much better in this remake. It was more symbolic than in the original.
I cannot sing Yamato 2199’s praises long or loud enough.
As a side note, I can know finally finish the comparison. That will most likely be all of the Yamato stuff I will post, until the movie comes out next year.
