While this film was nominally based on Edward E ("Doc") Smith's "Lensman" books, significant elements of the plot have actually been lifted from DC Comics "Green Lantern", which is fitting, as "Green Lantern" pretty much bases major parts of its background and setup on the "Lensman" stories.

This was a manga series that later made it to TV/Video. Unfortunately it stayed a minor hit in Japan and barely made cult status in the states.
There was only one feature length film released stateside and it played mostly art theaters.
Young lad (Skywalker-san?) inherits the power of the Lens from a dying warrior. Now he needs to learn to use it to fight off the Boscone. (I spent half the film wondering why they were fighting a chocolate drink.) This was of course after the lad's father sacrifices himself to save his son.
Now he needs to move on.
He learns to use his power while being chased and also chasing. A lone female comes into his life to help. Along with a friend of his late father. You're typical gruff big guy.
This movie clearly got influence from the Spielberg canon. The young ladies Princess Leia hairstyle. The Lens=the Force. And one scene ripped off completely from Indiana Jones. You'll see it easily.
A rocking adventure worth sitting through. And good for younger kids too. Meaning it's more adventure less apocalypse.
And the fight in the disco was a trip.
