It mostly looks good, though I'm not sure how necessary it really is.
Just because the shittier, older version did it doesn't mean the better, newer version had to. One of the changes they made to 2199 was that Kodai never assumed captaincy when Okita got ill, Sanada did because he was more experienced, and it made more sense.
2199 had enough closure too; every new series will make it worse.
I don't know, I didn't watch it. I just know he assumes captaincy in the first series every time Okita goes down with illness, and he's the full captain in Final Yamato.
Source: I educated myself.

I don't have to watch it, I was only ever commenting on the new series.
Kodai becoming captain of the Yamato at this point is stupid, as is continuing the story after defeating an empire that practically ruled over the universe.
