Every episode I've watched of the new series is like waves of nostalgia and I'm a kid again glued to the TV.

Sounds like you've been hit by the nostalgia wave motion gun.

All finished.

4/5, rounding up a tad. Not a perfect score but episodes 9-24 were phenomenal. I'd be interested to see the original at some point to see how they compare. This also gives me some hope that the LotGH remake won't be a horrible travesty.

I believe the 3 TV seasons of Star Blazers are available on Hulu.

That's gr-- wait, three seasons?

Now I'm doubly curious, that's a lot of content they trimmed down. Thanks for the link!

Ugh, y'all are making me wanna watch this so bad. But I just gave Knights of Sidonia a second shot, so I'll have to finish that first.

The Yamato universe is pretty rich. What you watched was the reboot of only the first season. The second season with The Comet Empire is just as good. The 3rd TV season was disappointing. And I believe there are 6 animated movies as well as the live-action version. I think everything is generally good, except for that 3rd TV season.

2199 covered only the first "season".

I prefer to say 3 series, as that is what they were. The first aired in Japan October 6, 1974 - March 30, 1975, the second series in 78-79, and the third in 80-81.


I agree with deadpanditto that the third season is noticeably lacking.

Oops; I was scrolling through the episodes and the last one said "Mission Day 299. Earth is one month from the end..." which made me think it was the same thing, without reading "... when the Argo arrives with the cannon from Gardiana."

Ah, it's the dub though. I'll go find the sub somewhere.
