Instead of being a misguided attempt to turn Pixar’s […]

thumb-spacebattleshipyamato

The original Space Battleship Yamato TV series was one of my gateways to anime, although it was called Star Blazers at the time and we didn’t have a fancy special word for it other than, “that cool Japanese cartoon.” Leiji Matsumoto’s space epic was gripping to a generation for whom Star Wars was the latest […]
