Space Battleship Yamato, aka Star Blazers, was my favorite cartoon as a kid. It was my mother’s favorite cartoon as well, because she’d only let me
watch it if I was dressed and ready for school. Let’s just say I was always ready for school.
When vile aliens known as the Gamilons wreak nuclear havoc on Earth, a group
of survivors refit the Japanese battleship Yamato for intergalactic travel and set off on a mission to retrieve a neutralizer that will eradicate the radiation from Earth’s atmosphere.
