Disclaimer and an Admission:
I have never watched Yamato, or any remakes, in their entirety. Surely I know the basic plot, the premise, the key points in the series. I know of the characters and of the ship. But as a child growing up, I never had the opportunity to, or pursue to even watch the American dub. So this is oddly paradoxical. I’ll wax long and poetic on childhood memories yet this is the first time I’m watching it.
An actual blog post will come once I get my thoughts together on Episodes 1 through 7.
