One of television’s best Sci-Fi shows for your inner geek is Star Blazers. This American adaptation of the Japanese Space Battleship Yamato anime dealt with more serious themes than many shows of its time. There have even been American comic adaptations made of the show. Though some younger fans might have forgotten about the adaptation, the Sci-Fi channel didn’t. They picked up the show in the modern era, and the show is also shown on an Internet network.
When Star Blazers came to the United States, few people knew what anime was.The full explanation can be found at http://www.aintitcool.com/node/53697 However, the adventures of Captain Avatar and Mark Venture helped to change the way that western viewers saw animation as a genre. The show featured serious science fiction material based around the resurrection of the actual Battleship Yamato. Eventually, she became a spaceship that was ready to tackle the long journey to the planet Iscandar. While edits were made to the original source material to fit the broadcast standards and practices of that era, there were far fewer edits than shows like Science Ninja Team Gatchaman.
Owing to this fact, the show holds up to the test of time and still proves interesting to science fiction fans to this day. Matsumoto Leiji was involved in the production of the series, and he has his own devout following among American fans of animated television dramas.
