With Yamato 2199 (宇宙戦艦ヤマト2199) drawing to a close, some great books are finally hitting the market to cover the series in detail. The first of these is Yamato 2199 "Earth" (宇宙戦艦ヤマト2199 : 公式設定資料集). As you would expect the book covers the characters, mechanics and related content related to the good guys (Unless you happen to be a Gamilas sympathizer). The softcover book comes in a glossy cardboard slipcase with the Yamato lineart on the cover. The dust jacket for the book features a cutaway rendering of the Yamato.
