About Star Blazers Space Battleship Yamato 2199 Manga Omnibus Volume 1

Star Blazers Space Battleship Yamato 2199 Manga Omnibus Volume 1 features story and art by Michio Murakawa.

2199 will be Earth's final year--unless the voyage of space battleship Yamato can succeed! The alien Gamilas have devastated the biosphere, determined to reshape our planet into their own new home. But a third force has intervened, as an emissary from the distant Iscandar has given humanity the plans for a faster-than-light drive. If the Yamato can battle its way through the Gamilas fleet to reach Iscandar, their technology can heal the Earth--but the odds against us are literally astronomical...

The classic 1974 anime TV series Space Battleship Yamato became a fan phenomenon in North America under the title Star Blazers. Now the epic tale of a legendary WWII battleship retrofitted as a spacecraft on a mission to save Earth has been remade by the generation of Japanese creators that grew up inspired by it--with staff including Yutaka Izubuchi (Cowboy Bebop: The Movie), Nobuteru Yuki (Kids on the Slope), and Hideaki Anno (Evangelion)!

Starry Eyed for Star Blazers

by -

As a long time fan of the Star Blazers series, I was stoked when the Japanese manga was finally coming overseas! This Omnibus collects volumes 1 and 2 of the Japanese run, and it is phenomenal. The translation is wonderful and the omnibus is a very comfortable fit for the hands when reading. The pages are of nice quality paper, and the overall aesthetic of the volume itself is fairly muted with the color primarily pertaining to the art on the cover. The spine is gray with black lettering and Dark Horse's logo. Within the volume itself, the art is LOVELY! Very clean art style.

As for the content, story wise the manga covers the first few episodes of the anime. The pace is readable and not distracting nor confusing, and if you love Space operas with apocalyptic "save the world" vibes? You'll love this, trust me. If you are a fan of the more classic Star Blazer series, this reboot is assuredly up to par.
