In the war between the Earth Federation and Zeon, a young and inexperienced crew find themselves on a new spaceship. Their best hope of making it through the conflict is the Gundam, a giant humanoid robot, and its gifted teenage pilot.
In 2977, mankind has space colonies, machines do all the work and everyone just wants to have fun. When deadly plant-based aliens that look like women attack the Earth in order to colonize it, only one rogue captain can stop them.
In the year 2199, Earth is invaded by an extraterrestrial race known as the Gamilas, who hail from a dying planet and decide to make Earth their new home. The Gamilas proceed to rain radioactive bombs on Earth, rendering the planet's surface arid and uninhabitable (but hospitable for their race). Earth's space fleet is hopelessly outclassed by the Gamilas and all seems lost... until a mysterious space probe is retrieved on Mars. The probe contains blueprints, and a message from Queen Starsha of the planet Iscandar, who claims to have a device which can cleanse Earth of its radiation damage. The blueprints are of a supercraft that can enable any ship to head to Iscandar (situated in another galaxy) and back in a year, and with these plans the denizens of Earth secretly rebuild a Japanese battleship, the Yamato, into a great space battleship. A small but intrepid crew of 114 departs for Iscandar in the Yamato to acquire the device... but with the menace of the Gamilas, can they succeed ... Written by

Leiji Matsumoto had thought of the concept of "wave-motion" since he was a sixth-grader; it made its first appearance in Matsumoto's early work "Dafuin" (1969), a manga comic (then it was mentioned as the "Space Wave-Motion Theory"). Matsumoto later considered whether this concept could apply to the series, so he asked his brother (who was then a student engineer at Kyushu University) to investigate and possibly validate it on a computer. The answer he got was: "It is not necessarily false." Whether or not it could really be done, the theory held up and the term was used. See more »
