Trivia

This "movie" is actually the original series "Uchû senkan Yamato" (1974-1975) edited into 2+ hours and shown theatrically. It should also be noted that it was this movie that made "Yamato" extremely popular in Japan (the original TV series didn't do so well in the ratings) and its success led (so far) to two other TV shows, four more movies, and a direct-to-video mini-series.

Wave Motion Gun!
16 November 2003 | by (South Hadley MA US) – See all my reviews

I was delighted to find this on DVD packed with extras and in the way real anime fans like to watch it, in Japanese with (English for me) subtitles, so we don't lose any of the original voices or sounds. Did you run home from high school every day to watch this too? I did. This was probably my second early exposure to anime, the first being Gatchaman I had thought that the first movie came before the first series but the series came first, which explains things like how Yuki's/Nova's arm got broken after they land on Iscandar to meet Stasha and get the Cosmo Cleaner D.

Space Cruiser Yamato the movie is a fun trip down memory lane, back to classic anime. Very informative to see the changes it went thru after being mangled into Star Blazers by completely changing or omitting sections of the film. The WWII sequence and ideas of Japanese honor were altered so as not to offend or confuse US viewers, gimme a break! The DVD even has an alternative scene on Iscandar that really changes the pace of the show.
