The first episode of the “Space Battleship Yamato” series, a monumental science fiction anime, was broadcast on October 6, 1974, and the final episode was broadcast on March 30, 1975. Today marks exactly 49 years since the last episode was aired, and it will also be the 50th anniversary. During this 50th anniversary project, he posted on X last year, “If I hadn’t encountered Space Battleship Yamato, I don’t think my life would be the same today.”49 At the request of Mr. Hideaki Anno, who has been a big fan of Yamato for many years, we decided to be involved in planning and producing. In addition to multiple book projects proposed by Hideaki Anno, we are also planning to hold a commemorative screening event for the TV series on October 6, 2024, the date of the first TV version, and an exhibition gathering valuable related materials.
We also plan to announce the 50th anniversary logo for Space Battleship Yamato, so please look forward to future developments! -Comment from Hideaki Anno-

The opening picture and song right after it starts are so cool! I was paralyzed by the opening of the main title, and the movement of Yamato as the camera pulls away from the captain’s cabin, which is directly connected to it, gripped my heart, and I still feel that way to this day. I really regretted missing the first episode. From the second episode to the final episode, I avoided all
difficulties (I had no choice but to sacrifice watching “Great Mazinger”, intentionally delayed cram school time, and ran back to my apartment the moment cram school ended) on Sunday at 7 o’clock. From half-time onwards, I made sure to sit in front of the TV. I vividly remember the shock of the first episode, which I was finally able to watch when it was rebroadcast. Once again, I feel that 49 years ago today was the moment when my life was decided. I posted this because I wanted to express my personal gratitude to the epoch-making work “Space Battleship Yamato.”

2199 AD. Earth is on the brink of extinction after being attacked by the mysterious interstellar nation Gamilas. The radioactive
contamination caused by the planetary bomb spread throughout the earth’s surface, and was slowly eating away at the humans who had fled to the underground city. When the Earth Defense Force is defeated and all hope is lost, a message from Queen Starsha of the planet Iskandar arrives. It is said that Iskandar has Cosmo Cleaner D, a radiation removal device that can save the Earth from destruction. The space battleship Yamato, equipped with Iskandar’s “wave engine”
technology, departs 148,000 light years away, carrying humanity’s hopes and dreams.
