This TV animation series was huge in the French speaking world and ALL my friends would sit together in front of the TV after school (at my friends house of course, and watch, mesmerised, at the beauty of the space travel, the silvidres, Albator himself was so gorgeous! And that song, my neighbour had it on 45" but my family never spent money on such trivial things (late 70s, that's how my parents were). There was a usually a lot of gohrish violence and death, but also lot's of drama, I especially remember Albator's Sadness at being far from his daughter, and that beautiful haunting little tune she played on her eucarina, he saw so little of her and feared for her security and happiness. I've heard many complaints about the English dubbing, but in my memory, the french dubbing was fine, but I was very young back then, and had not much concepts of dubbing, or foreign cultures! I wish I could see it again! If you get a chance don't miss it. One thing though, I think to truly appreciate it, you need to see the whole series, chronologically.
