For those not entirely up on the Star Blazers/Space Cruiser Yamato anime series, we present this documentary episode. It focuses not only on the TV episodes of Star Blazers, but incorporates the movies "New Voyage", "Be Forever", and "Final Yamato" which are only available in North America on subtitled DVD. All of the original series is available on DVD from Voyager Entertainment.
The documentary is read and acted by the cast of the upcoming "Sea of Stars" audio drama, and features both classic music from throughout the series, and several audio cuts from the first two seasons of the English TV episodes. This is a great way to re-familiarize yourself with the back story of this classic anime.

This project was thrown together at literally the last moment. While its been in the hopper as it were for about six months, it was written in a hurry, cast even faster, and recorded very quickly. I would like take a moment to thank the cast for doing an extraordinary job.
The adventures of the Star Force don't end here...
