English Dub of Space Battleship Yamato 2199’s First Episode Shown at Anime Expo

Anime News Network is reporting that the English dub of the first episode of Space Battleship Yamato 2199, which is being released in English under the title, Star Blazers 2199, was shown at Anime Expo on Saturday, July 6, 2013.

Anime News Network also reported that the day before Anime Expo, Voyager Entertainment renewed its Star Blazers website with a 13-minute compilation of English-subbed trailers and a three-minute video explaining what Star Blazers 2199 is.

I’ve watched the 13-minute compilation of trailers, and I found the subtitling kind of interesting. In the subtitles, the ship is referred to as the Argo, and that Stasha’s name is referred to as “Starsha” (which was her name in the English adaptation of the original 1970s Space Battleship Yamato); however, the remaining characters are retaining their original Japanese names in the subtitles. So, it’s making me wonder if this will be the case in the actual dub, or if they’ll be using the English names from the adaptation of the original series.
