For those not entirely up on the Star Blazers/Space Cruiser Yamato anime series, we present this documentary episode. It focuses not only on the TV episodes of Star Blazers, but incorporates the movies "New Voyage", "Be Forever", and "Final Yamato" as well.
The documentary is read and acted by the cast of the upcoming "Sea of Stars" audio drama, and features both classic music from throughout the series, and several audio cuts from the first two seasons of the English TV episodes. This is a great way to re-familiarize yourself with the back story of this classic anime.
The animated series, Star Blazers, the classic Uchuu Senkan Yamato animated films, and even a lot of the newer remakes of the seris can be found on blu ray or DVD for sale online. The first season of the classic Star Blazers dub is also available to stream from various online media outlets.
We fervently hope you will seek out the orignal animation. But in the meantime we present this audio ode to the classic animated series.
