    You see, their morals, their code...it's a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble. They're only as good as the world allows them to be. I'll show you. When the chips are down, these...These "civilized" people...they'll eat each other. See, I'm not a monster. I'm just ahead of the curve

    - Solo Attack: When you attack, let the sprint group lead you out. You take no points. But when they sit up, you put your head down and hold threshold. Remember: When you see Jesus you are still about 2 minutes from blacking out. Hang on.

    Tell me about it! I remember running home every afternoon to catch the next episode of "StarBlazers!" on TV! It was very exciting for a kid like me!

    I watched every one, enjoyed them too. I think it was a great series, but thats only my humble opinion.

    Interesting that they used the Yamato as a basis for this. In real life, the Battleship Yamato was the heaviest/most heavily armored battleship ever built and early on was the flagship of the Imperial Navy - but other than serving as a transport and American bomb and torpedo magnet, only fired it's guns once in battle (Battle of Leyte Gulf) before it was sunk on a one-way trip to defend Okinawa at the end of the war.

    Yamato (大和), named after the ancient Japanese Yamato Province, was the lead ship of the Yamato class of battleships that served with the Imperial Japanese Navy during World War II. She and her sister ship, Musashi, were the heaviest and most powerfully armed battleships ever constructed, displacing 72,800 tonnes at full load and armed with nine 46 cm (18.1 inch) main guns. Neither survived the war.

    Laid down in 1937 and formally commissioned in late 1941, Yamato was designed to counter the numerically superior battleship fleet of the United States, Japan's main rival in the Pacific. Throughout 1942 she served as the flagship of the Japanese Combined Fleet, and in June 1942 Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto directed the fleet from her bridge during the disastrous Battle of Midway. Musashi took over as the Combined Fleet flagship in early 1943, and Yamato spent the rest of the year, and much of 1944, moving between the major Japanese naval bases of Truk and Kure in response to American threats. Although she was present at the Battle of the Philippine Sea in June 1944, Yamato played no part in the battle. The only time she fired her main guns at enemy surface targets was in October 1944, when she was sent to engage American forces invading the Philippines during the Battle of Leyte Gulf. On the verge of success the Japanese force turned back, believing they were engaging an entire US carrier fleet rather than the light escort-carrier group that was all that stood between Yamato and the vulnerable troop transports.
    During 1944 the balance of naval power in the Pacific decisively turned against Japan, and by early 1945 the Japanese fleet was much depleted and critically short of fuel stocks in the home islands, limiting its usefulness. In April 1945, in a desperate attempt to slow the Allied advance, Yamato was dispatched on a one-way voyage to Okinawa, where it was intended that she should protect the island from invasion and fight until destroyed. Her task force was spotted south of Kyushu by US submarines and aircraft, and on 7 April she was sunk by American carrier-based bombers and torpedo bombers with the loss of most of her crew.


    The ship didn't have to fire a single shot to become a legend.

    OK, I stick my big toe in P&R territory here. But I was told by a long time Tokyo resident (of New Zealand origin) that many don't really believe they even lost this war.

    I'm with you on the confusion part and I thought it was every bit as odd way back when it first aired.

    They didn't and those damn yankees did not beat us Johnny Rebs either! I think that Robert E. Lee should be the commander of the Yamoto!

    Very odd, as they were the first true linear story arc animated series on US television.


    The whole draw was that is was this operatic drama that took a year in earth time to unfold. They were definitely not all the same.


    I'm excited. I used to scratchbuild models of the Yamato from Revell battleship kits.

    Story line ended as soon as the main weapon was fired.

    And there sits my childhood in a nutshell. While the others shilled for Star Wars and Star Trek, I was all over Star Blazers. I thought I would travel to Mars as a tourist in my lifetime, between 2000-2010 we would discover faster than light speed travel, robots would do all our work, and I could implant a chip in my head instead of going to math class. What happened? I didn't even get a bike that could turn into a robot!

    Ah, yes. Each episode contrived another hindrance to the ultimate goal of saving the Earth in due time. The concept of blasting an entire planet with one big *** blew me away...
    It looked like a battleship for pete's sake! What could rock more than that!
    That was some good stuff.

    I dont really get it. I have the same problem with anime, and some of the other Japanese genre works.

    But it looks pretty intense.

    Ok Earf Defense Force, here it is. http://www.novamov.com/video/mkwgmkwyjepum . It's a slow load. It took about 5 minutes on my ratty computer but it's well worth it. When the play button comes on at the bottom of the screen, hit it. No need to create a free account just wait for the play button to appear at the bottom.
