On a journey to find the cure for a Tatarigami's curse, Ashitaka finds himself in the middle of a war between the forest gods and Tatara, a mining colony. In this quest he also meets San, the Mononoke Hime.
In this extended version of Galaxy Express 999 third episode, the main character, a boy Tetsuro, befriends Crystal Claire who works on the space train and has a glass body. He thinks he also saw his mother, but he's dead wrong.
Absurd and ridiculous conclusion of legendary series!
After the massively engrossing and epic stories found in the three Yamato TV series, "Final Yamato" (clever title) falls short in every category of comparison... approximately 50 times more disappointing than Return of the Jedi! Here's Final Yamato's ludicrous MST3K premise: A hyper-dimensional red galaxy appears from nowhere, seemingly about to destroy the entire Milky Way by the time the opening credits have finished, and the Yamato barely escapes a cloud of red dust by entering a random warp. The incredibly dangerous red galaxy is subsequently ignored in favor of a warping waterworld that floods planets on some processional cycle... planets such as the one Yamato arrives at after the random warp! How lucky. A handful of the planet's survivors inexplicably attack the Yamato (as a way to thank the Yamato for trying to save flood victims perhaps?), and then arbitrarily decide to conquer Earth, which is coincidentally the same planet Yamato is from! Lucky again! The aliens' scheme is to first flood Earth by warping the waterworld there, making the planet ripe for emigration. But if aliens don't mind living on a flooded planet, why don't they just stay on their OWN planet!? Makes no sense. And the bad guy rides the horse from Dragon's Lair. Yamato fans, avoid this movie at all costs!
