To commemorate the revival version of the "Fever: Space Battleship Yamato" pachinko machines from manufacturer SANKYO, they are hosting a campaign website that will stream all six of the animated Space Battleship Yamato movies free of charge. Alas, there are no subtitles, but frankly, I'm surprised it's not region blocked. See the schedule below:
Part one: October 24 - November 6
Space Battleship Yamato (1977)
Farewell to Space Battleship Yamato (1978)
Part Two: TBA late November
Yamato: The New Voyage (1979)
Be Forever Yamato (1980)
Part Three: TBA late November
Final Yamato (1983)
Space Battleship Yamato: Resurrection (2009)
Part Four: December
Replays of Space Battleship Yamato: Resurrection and Space Battleship Yamato.
Whether you know it as Star Blazers, Space Cruiser Yamato, or Space Battleship Yamato, Leiji Matsumoto's space opera is an absolute classic. It was most recently interpreted as a live action film in 2010—Space Battleship Yamato, starring Takuya Kimura and Meisa Kuroki, but the manga was adapted into a TV anime series in 1974-75.
If nothing else, it's a great anime history lesson, but at best you'll be able to give your Japanese a work-out. Who's tuning in?
And since we have your attention, here's the preview for the new Yamato pachinko itself, based on Space Battleship Yamato: Resurrection!
