Trivia

Commander Baruze's name is pronounced "Balsey". This connects Beruze with Admiral William "Bull" Halsey, a commander of the US Navy's 3rd Fleet and a vicious opponent of the Japanese during World War II. Baruze's battle with the Space Yamato in the area of Saturn shows a parallel with the Battle of Leyte Gulf, which involved both Bull Halsey and the original Yamato. See more »

The Comet Empire!
18 November 2003 | by (South Hadley MA US) – See all my reviews

This movie was even better than Space Battleship Yamato the movie The Comet Empire threat made Gamilus look like wimps. Was the Comet Empire "ship" larger in size than the artifical Dark Nebula Empire planet in Be Forever Yamato or the giant Urban Satellite Uruk in Final Yamato? Arrivederci Yamato was also darker, with many more deaths and noble suicides of major characters. Every time you think the Arrivederci story ends, surprise! the Comet Empire has another trick up its sleeve. I heard a rumor that the Japanese fans were so outraged at Arrivederci basically ending the storylines that they demanded more Yamato, and so Space Battleship Yamato 2 the series was made, with Telezart having a much bigger role, Desslar/Desslok and Kodai/Derek Wildstar switching roles during their final confrontation, and the Dreadnought blasting Earth instead of the Moon. Arrivederci was less confusing than the sometimes choppy plot of Space Battleship Yamato the movie, except for the ending where you can completely misinterpret what happens w/o some kind of translation if you don't speak Japanese. This is the only entry in the 5 movies and 3 series where the Earth Defense Fleet kicks major alien buttocks.
