Space Battleship Yamato - Season 1
Just finished what has to be one of the greatest anime ive watched, Uchū Senkan Yamato, gotta be in my top 5 at least.
Its a 26 episode epic which reminds me of the new Battlestar Galactica, lots of cool action with great story telling with surprisingly for the age of the anime quite adult themes.
I think i watched this in record time, both because of the damn rubbish weather we got here and i really wanted to see what happened next.
The Yamato is one freaking cool looking ship, ive always liked it from when ever i first laid eyes on the beauty, i never realised that this Yamato is actually the resurrected Yamato from World War 2, always thought it was a namesake. The fluid line, sci-fi antennas and two tone red and grey hull just look perfect!
Know as Star Blazers in the west and quite cheap to buy here unlike most anime ive got. Going straight onto Yamato 2 which has the also looking Spaceship Andromeda, another beauty.
