Blazer Glory



You have no idea how excited I am for the live-action version of the Japanese animated series Space Battleship Yamato -- also known as Star Blazers for you American kids who, like me, grew up loving it.

Well, according to the good folks at Pajiba, this is the first two minutes of the movie; I have to take their word for it because I obviously have no idea what the hell is going on in this clip, since it isn't subtitled. What it is, though, is damn cool.

There's supposed to be almost 7 mins of the StarBlazers film floating around on YT.

That's the opening scene; the Gamalons defeating the Earth Fleet. Captain Avatar manages to disengage to save some ships, but the bulk of the fleet refuses to withdraw and is completely destroyed.
He goes on to command the Space Battleship Yamato (called the Argo in the US distribution).

Japanese Adama looks intense. How many Cylons models they have in this series? :)

That fellow speaking right at the beginning sounded and looked an awful lot like Takeshi Kaga, "chairman" of Iron Chef.
