A movie: Space Battleship Yamato.

Sunday, April 3, 2011

I watched "Space Battleship Yamato" today and thoroughly enjoyed it. It is somewhat different from the anime I watched as a young boy but that's to be expected since the anime spanned tens of episodes and the movie lasted only 131 minutes. Here is the official website of the movie: http://yamato-movie.net/en/movie.html

After watching the movie, I was so full of nostalgia that I decided to search for the anime I watched as a young boy. I found what I was looking for on YouTube and would like to share here with readers who might have the same feelings that I do. You know what, I like the anime more. ;-p

English version (known as "Star Blazers") here:


Japanese version (the original "Space Battleship Yamato") here:

Hint: The Japanese version is better. More authentic. Enjoy. :-)

hi ak71

i love this cartoon as a child, and i even made my paper yamato just based on imagination and visual memories..

it was my favourite cartoon.. especially how they used to solve every problem/challenge by turning on the blaster and blow everything to bits..

spaceship yamato is truly ahead of its time..

Hi mrtaught,

You made a model of Yamato out of paper? Do you, by any chance, still have it? Wow!

I agree that the concept and the space battleship Yamato was light years ahead of its time. :)

So apart from shares, we have the same taste in movie/anime too :)

I have a longer review of the movie in another forum. Do check it out!

Hi AK,

Gosh. I didn't realise Yamato is actually the original Japanese version of my fav "Star Blazers" cartoon.

I found the English theme song here which i found i could still remember the lyrics:
