Star Blazers

Star Blazers was one of my favorite cartoons when I was young. It was the American version of the Japanese anime series Space Battleship Yamato and was first broadcast in the United States in 1979.

Here's the original English intro --

Let's all sing along!

We're off to outer space
We're leaving Mother Earth
To save the human race
Our Star Blazers

Searching for a distant star
Heading off to Iscandar
Leaving all we love behind
Who knows what danger we'll find?

We must be strong and brave
Our home we've got to save
If we don't in just one year
Mother Earth will disappear

Fighting with the Gamilons
We won't stop until we've won
Then we'll return and when we arrive
The Earth will survive
With our Star Blazers

In December 2010 a live action version of the cartoon will be released in Japan. I hope it's eventually dubbed or subtitled for English audiences.

Here's the (awesome) teaser trailer --
