Synopsis

In the distant future, the war between the human race and the Gamilon has taken its toll on the planet Earth. Constant bombardment of radioactive asteroids has rendered the planet's atmosphere uninhabitable. As a means of relief aid, Queen Starsha of the planet Iscandar offers the Earth Forces a device that can completely neutalize the radiation off the planet. For this task, the space battleship Yamato is launched from the remains of its World War II ancestor on a 148,000 light-year journey. However, the crew of the Yamato has only one Earth year to travel to Iscandar and back, or the human race will come to an end.

Its influence pervades nearly every science fiction anime series told in its wake, and its storytelling has most certainly stood the test of time.

That being said, it is important to note that Yamato has aged remarkably well. Where many older series’ can be hindered by comparatively poor animation qualities, a lack of detail due to shoestring read more

Well, this is my first review, so please go easy on me.

Recommendations

The ship designs and the space opera animation are almost the same.

Both are sci-fi shows about humans living on a soon to be dead planet Earth trying to fend off alien attacks. They are from the same era and feature a similar vibe all around, as well as similar animation. Tekkaman has more of a focus on action.
