A year has passed since the Star Force returned to save the Earth but another danger now approaches from deep space. A gigantic White Comet hurtles toward our galaxy, obliterating everything in its path. But it is no ordinary comet—it is the deadly Comet Empire, conqueror of worlds... and Earth is the next target! Against orders, the Star Force blasts off to investigate, but even if they can get past the flagship Andromeda, they don't yet know the true nature of their new enemy!

Well, as stated in my previous review, the first season of Space Battleship Yamato was excellent to me. I kinda wanted to have more of it. Luckily, the second season, the Comet Empire, appeared as I googled it. I had my doubts though, since Leiji Matsumoto could have blown the soul of the anime with a weird / not fitting sequel of what the great Quest for Iscandar was (somethig that is very common in movies /tv shows nowadays). Anyways, I decided to give it a try, so after 6 days and something of downloading (and me praying for seeders that never seemed to come!), read more

Leiji Matsumoto is back yet again, and with the sequel to the 1974 Yamato, aka Star Blazer. After watching the first season, I not only wanted to watch more of Matsumoto’s work, but had to watch more Yamato. The other man of note was Kenzou Koizumi whom did storyboard and chief animation director (known for story board on Lupin III, animation Galaxy Express, list goes on forever). Now did the sequel live up to the original or did it turn out much like the anime sequels of today?

This story line was the second part of the overall story. It grew up in many ways from the first one. Better art work and direction, writing all added more to a good story. We saw Derik Wildstar (if that was his name or how it was spelled?) as a older, more mature person than in the first one. He fit into the Commanders shoes and learned wisdom.
They had a terrible new enemy coming at Earth and so the Star force once again felt a need to help save others as well as earth.
It had it's dumb parts as well read more

The second season of Space Battleship Yamato was a definite improvement over the original, while the story’s more or less the same, that story being the Yamato, the same one used by the IJN, underwent renovation to make it suitable for combat in space, by just kind of flying out of the ocean in pristine condition, and it is humanity’s last hope, and the Yamato must travel to a distant planet to find a mysterious woman and avert complete destruction by an evil empire. And that’s what they do, with how much the story is practically a rehash of the original, it seems strange to read more
