Started watching a new anime today: Space Battleship Yamato, also known as Star Blazers in the United States, is a Japanese science fiction anime series that first aired in 1974. The story follows the crew of the space battleship Yamato as they embark on a mission to save Earth from an alien invasion. The series was later remade and released in the US as Star Blazers. It has become a classic of the sci-fi genre and has influenced many other works of science fiction.
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.
Duration: 2 Seasons, 52 Episodes; Publisher: Voyager Entertainment
