When I was six years old, I was absolutely obsessed with Starblazers and Battle of the Planets, which were the American titles given to the Anime series’ Space Battleship Yamato and Science Ninja Team Gatchaman. Over 30 years later, the Japanese, in a never-ending quest to unleash awesomeness and insanity upon the world, made a live-action Yamato/Starblazers movie, and here’s five minutes of it. If they ever made a live-action Battle of the Planets/Gatchaman, my mind might literally explode. I know my pants sure would.


About Jeff Carter

Jeff began his path towards Geek destiny at the age of four, at a drive-in screening of Star Wars. Since then, he's had a love affair with all things nerdy. In the mid to late 90's, Jeff was a staff writer for EchoStation.Com, interviewing Star Wars heavyweights like Timothy Zahn and Drew Struzan. He then went on to review films and write editorial pieces for several blogs in the mid 2000's, wrote and co-created a webcomic strip that ran from 2007-2010, and is currently co-founder of Dead Henchmen Productions, an independent film company based in New England.
