    A Quality Remake of The Grandfather of all Anime
    This is the show that coined the term Anime. It's the grand daddy of them all! It's really a treat to see that Crunchyroll has put this up to watch! I remember running home every day from school to be in front of the TV to watch this! We had never encountered anything like it as American kids! Instead of silly cartoon animals bonking each other over the head, we got a grand sweeping story about ...

    One of the Most Underrated Anime of All Time.
    Legendary cgi and quality art encompass the anime. Every scene holds important information on setting the plot for future episodes and therefore there are no wasteful filler. The space setting is believable and realistic using real world theories to push its amazingness to you, the viewer. Just imagine star treck anime style! My favorite point about this anime is that every character is well ...

    The anime that started it all in the west
    This anime was the one that got me hooked back when I was in school. I had watched kimba the white lion and speed racer when I was very young, but Star Blazers set the hook during my teens. So happy to see this on crunchyroll. Now, give us the rest of the series...

    UNDERRATED DOES NOT BEGIN TO EVEN DESCRIBE THIS
    This show is way past underrated...it should be a crime that more people aren't watching this at the moment. I've always loved a good space anime and THIS ONE DELIVERS.

    Without giving away the plot too much aliens basically destroy the earth and the heroes of earth go on a space voyage to try to save their planet. You have probably watched something with a similar premise. What you haven't ...

    Bam! Right in the childhood!
    One of the best series of all time. This and Robotech Macross were what helped define my childhood so many years back. I watched the new series a while ago, and it hits on every one of my fond memories of this series.
    That said, it is not just for nostalgic folks like me, this series EASILY stands on its own now.

    Fantastic series that holds true to the original, But?
    Why is it that you are releasing the show one episode at a time when the entire show was released in 2012? It has been 5 years and waiting weeks to watch the episodes I want to watch is a bit annoying. All in all I do love this show even the original from 1974 still holds up to nostalgia. Thank you for finally getting the rights to this wonderful series and I hope you get Space Battleship Yamato ...

    A remake, still better than 90% of all anime
    This is just ridiculous. Completely exceeded any expectations!

    I know the story, I know the episodes, I know the arc, after running home to watch this in 1980 every afternoon when big yellow dropped all us elementary school kids off. That was the single show that started me in search of Japanese cartoons, as it actually contained a story and character development! This new version has amazing ...

    This should be more popular!
    Fantastic artwork, pacing, and editing. A glorious space opera with interesting bits of true SciFi. Please give it a watch if you like good anime.

    Oh shoot, I have to write 75 more characters of review. There's not much more to say. This show's production value is through the roof compared to many more popular shows.

    If you enjoy space, sci fi, cool weapons, epic battles, grizzly captains ...

  • Impeccable Story!!! Overall Excellence
    I never watched the old anime back in the 70's, but I am so glad that they remade it or I would have missed out on one the most engaging storylines of all time. This is a must watch anime for anyone that likes war, suspense, character development, and/or sci-fi. For me the 3 episode rule was not needed as I was hooked after the first. I still advise anyone watching for the first time to give it ...
