  • 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 ...

    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 ...

  • So much goodness found here
    It's amazing that I used to watch this as a kid on a 9" color TV and thought it was HUGE! The story, the characters, the universe building, the survival of humanity - I couldn't get enough or wait for the next days episode. I'm enjoying the sub way more than the English dub as a kid. Some of the modernization might not have been needed, but it is blended in well and doesn't stick out sorely. ...

  • This show started my life long love affair with Anime!
    As a few other have said in this review thread, this Anime holds a special place in our hearts as the quintessential entry point into this life-long Anime addiction. I also remember running home after school to make certain I didn't miss a single episode. And while it has been many, many years since I've seen this, and I have to say that this update is spot on amazing and well worth watching ...

  • What a real Anime show should be!
    This show is the granddaddy of Anime shows. The original Yamato was amazing, but this remake keeps on getting better and better.

    This is what Anime should be, action, fast paced, great animation and no sugarcoating, highly recommended to watch! I hope it keeps on going forever!

  • A Properly Done Remake.
    Starblazers kept the Yamato's image in my head, well before I ever knew of the real Yamato. Often enough I was home from school in time to catch the english television broadcast of episodes. Never enough in a row or order to really understand the premise or story line.

    As an adult tried to watch again. Whether personal time constraints, or the age of original, did not get far.

    Welcome to ...

  • Excellence in Action
    Fantastic Re-Make of one of my all time Favorites growing up. Yes, it takes some liberties from the original material to move the story along but its done very respectfully to the original material - story, sounds, and music. Considered to be the Star Wars of Anime at its time and an inspiration to the later creation of Robotech Macross. For those that enjoy this, the updated version of this ...

  • Now my favorite anime of all time! Beautiful art, fantastic story!
    Often called the "Star Wars of Japan," I can see why! It has a depth of story to match any Western Sci-Fi. It's soooo good! I love the characters, including the Yamato—the ship is almost a character in itself. The villains are awesome. The art is astounding! Truly a pleasure to watch!

    A Return To Manliness
    Each episode of this show seems like a deep, solid and interesting story. There's such an emphasis on honor, dignity, and respect mutually held for the captains of both allied and enemy ships that it makes you wonder where real manliness has gone in the world.

    Very cool.
