This movie was released in America by U.S. Manga Corps in both an uncut subtitled format, and a English-dubbed format (seen on IMDb as Odin: Photon Space Sailor Starlight
(1986)). The original uncut version runs 135 minutes, but the English dub, which was edited for length purposes, runs only 90 minutes. This film thus has the distinction of perhaps being the anime movie which suffered the harshest editing for length in its English release. See more
