Trivia:
Since this was being released for the first time, the absence of a pre-sold audience meant that the odds would be stacked against the series right from the beginning, perhaps even more than a single manga adaptation could overcome. So instead there would be three, from three different publishers (Akita Shoten, Tokuma Shoten, and Asahi Sonorama).See more »

STAR BLAZERS is born, 19 August 2000
Author: Pro Jury



Recently the original two hour SPACE BATTLESHIP YAMATO movie was shown at a local university. Watching it offered more questions than answers in pondering how the 120 minute movie was edited into the first STAR BLAZERS series. What stands to memory is that STAR BLAZERS had its storyline given more detail and enrichment. However, either version is fun to watch.

The story, the music, the space battles, the animation... the two words to describe it is PURE FUN!

Enthralled, simply enthralled watching the STAR BLAZERS TV series for the first time 20 years ago. I have seen a fair number of Japanese cartoon series and no characters remain as vivid and real as the crew of the Argo.
