Thanks for the review, Michael! So glad I saw it or I wouldn't have noticed how cheap the movie is at Amazon.

I was a big Star Blazers fan as a kid so I recently picked this up but haven't seen it yet. Thanks for the review.

I'm hoping we get a US version of the recently remade Yamato series soon; the individual Japanese episodes are really pricy on Amazon.

"'Space Battleship Yamato' is a movie your inner teenager will love (assuming said teenager loves somewhat goofy and action packed space operas)"

Robotech was one of the best things that ever happened in my life...OK, a bit of an overstatement, but having absorbed all things Robotech (mmm...protoculture), you get my point. So, goofy/action packed space operas are right up my alley! I remember catching this on TV when I was younger...surprised I didn't even know about this movie being released. Thanks for the review! Will definitely pick this up.

I'm pretty sure it has been announced for US release by some little unknown company.

What's funny is that SBY is such a part of their pop culture that the Japanese' answer to the fixing the piss-poor visuals of the original 70's-era series was to completely recreate it in the same style. What would be even cooler is for a fan dub to come out of the original American voice/audio over the new series' video.

Nice review, Palmer. I bought this movie solely based on your review (and how freakin cheap it was on Amazon yesterday). I didn't even know this movie existed, but I am so excited to be getting it tomorrow!
