  AnimeOnDVD.com >> Disc Reviews >> Space Battleship Yamato: The Movie
"Space Battleship Yamato" is the warp-speed version of television's first "Yamato" series, known in the U.S. as "Star Blazers: The Quest for Iscandar." This seamless motion picture features the episodic adventure's most spectacular battles, dramatic personal encounters, intimate moments, and the unparalleled suspense of an intergalactic race against time to save Earth from total destruction.
If the Yamato TV series was available in Japanese, I'd rate this as "get it only if you're a completeist." I've seen quite a few anime compilation movies and this one is by far the weakest.
And Dommel's desperation to beat the Star Force and destroy the Yamato even at the cost of his own life is confusing without knowing that he'd been sentenced to death and was pardoned by Dessler (Desslok) in order to fight one final battle against the Yamato.

 : RevolutionSF - Space Battleship Yamato: The Making of an Anime Legend : Review
Telling the story of the Japanese WWII battleship rebuilt into a starship in the year 2199 and saving Earth from countless hostile alien invasions, the Yamato television series (spanning three seasons and accompanied by five theatrical movies) ignited the space-opera craze in Japanese animation from the mid-70s to the early 80s.
Space Battleship Yamato: The Making of an Anime Legend was directed by Tim Eldred, a longtime fan of everything Yamato-related who was also in charge of the background material (in both in the extras department and the booklets added to the boxes) in the Voyager DVD releases of the series and movies.
Until then, Space Battleship Yamato: The Making of an Anime Legend is absolutely a must for any fan of the franchise, and a very worthy addition to the DVD shelf of anime fans who are into the history of the field.

 Starship Modeler - Space Battleship Yamato (1/500 scale) Preview Kit Preview
Resurrected by the Star Force from the rusting hulk of the World War II era battleship the Space Battleship Yamato is Earth's last hope in the war against the Gamilon Empire.
The kit’s 27 pieces are bolded in red with the exception of 2 clear domes for either side of the robot’s head.
The interior of the hull leaves plenty of open space if I choose to light this kit, the base however has no way to hide the battery box so some extensive redesign on the base may be required.

 Space Battleship Yamato Eternal Edition File No. 0 & 1
File #0 is the "Great Yamato Symphonic Suite." Great Yamato is an as-yet unproduced series that re-tells the Yamato story, and as such a BGM can not exist (since BGMs are albums of music tracks actually used in a show).
The music itself is a mixture of existing Yamato themes and new material, and even the older themes are presented here re-orchestrated, giving them a fresh sound.
Incidentally, recent news from Japan regarding Great Yamato is not good: the show's name has been changed to Great Galaxy due to legal problems, and it may come to pass that this CD will end up being a soundtrack for a show which does not exist.

 GreenCine | product main - Farewell to Space Battleship Yamato - In the Name of Love (1995)
Farewell to Space Battleship Yamato: In The Name of Love (1978) was a feature-length animated film based on Yoshinobu Nishizaki's animated television series Space Cruiser Yamato (known in America as Star Blazers).
Its plot was later adapted into the second Space Cruiser Yamato series (aka The Comet Empire), which is a source of confusion for fans, since their plots overlap in large measure, but also diverge in serious ways.
At the opening of Farewell to Space Battleship Yamato, the human race is quickly rebuilding itself in the wake of the Yamato's victory over the Gamilans, and the space battleship's crew has been broken up, its members scattered to the now restored space fleet.

During the ship's first space warp, early in the first series, we are treated to a bizarre view of some of the odd, semi-psychedelic effects of traveling faster than the speed of light.

This was the (supposedly) final film in the Uchuu Senkan Yamato series (which came here as Star Blazers.) The story (written by co-creator Leiji Matsumoto) revolves around the coming of the water planet Aquarius, sent on a mission to destroy the earth by the citizens of Dinguil.
Although overlong, it is still an enjoyable adventure (albeit one that demands long leaps of faith on the part of the audience).
If you want a space adventure that ends up like if Tolstoy were hired to do Star Wars, watch Final Yamato.

 Star Blazers (Space Battleship Yamato) Vol. 1 - Anime DVD Review at BasuGasuBakuhatsu Anime Blog
Star Blazers is a totally retro anime that was known in Japan as “Space Battleship Yamato.” It’s considered a classic anime and therefore, a must watch!
The only thing I have to say about Yamato (besides I consider it an Anime Masterpiece of all times) is that the series actually begins at episode 11.
And Yamato ends in episode 26, the two other sagas which compose Starblazers (Yamato 2 and yamato 3), while faithfull to the first, are not truly part of the greatness of Space Battleship Yamato, IMHO

This huge and complex kit should measure in at around 30" in length and it comes with a hand held controller that operates the fully functional lights, sounds, moving turrets, and other high-end goodies you'd expect in a kit of this magnitude.
The wave motion gun is the Yamato's defining weapon, and with this kit, it's almost like energy is actually being transformed into tachyon particles before your very eyes.
The fore and aft guns move separately, and the noise of the guns firing is extremely realistic.
