Star Blazers Gets On SyFy Schedule For April

Quest for Iscandar to return to broadcast

By Chris Beveridge     February 25, 2011

With all the news lately about both the Japanese live action Yamato film and the plans for a US made version of Star Blazers on the big screen, fans of the original material will be able to experience it again. The SyFy channel is now listing Star Blazers for April 21st which is where the anime line-up will be as it's moving away from Mondays. The series will be tied with two episodes of Chrono Crusade from 11PM to 12AM and then two episodes of Star Blazers will follow afterwards. 

Star Blazers originally ran in the US for 77 episodes, going from 1979 until 1984 for three seasons.

Plot summary: Relentless planet bombing from outer space forces Earth's survivors to live underground-if they want to live at all. When the deadly radiation starts penetrating their subterranean cities, Space Cruiser Argo is launched on a 148,000 light year quest for the planet Iscandar. The legendary ship's mission is to return with technology that will neutralize the contamination. An elite force of Star Blazers has only one earth year to do it. During this intergalactic race against time they engage in spectacular space battles with Gamilon fleets from another galaxy, now based on Pluto. In addition to the overwhelming odds and superior destructive power of the invaders, the Argo's other enemy is deep space itself.

May give this a shot. I never watched this but with all the talk about a live action film I may want to familiarize myself with it a bit.

Btw Chris why you stop doing the C2F stuff, I thought you were doing great

I use to love this show and i have a Copy of Captain Herlock as well on dvd , it is alittle dated animation wise but if you can get pass that it has some great stories.

I would like a new DVD run please!  If Funi has almost all of these, why won't they send them over?  I'd really like to see Galaxy Express TV.  I've never seen Star Blazers... and I sure as heck don't want to see them edited like I KNOW they won't be on SCIFY.   I'd love a second chance to see Yamato PLEASE!

reionpremente with a new movie coming up you can pretty much bet that a new dvd set will come out pretty soon.

Its been so long since I watched this show all can remember of it is the big laser coming out of the front of the ship lol I'll proably check this one out when I'm not working- Hopefully comcast on demand will have it on their syfy channel so i can watch it when I miss episodes wat work.

Wisegy- I agree with you Chris was doing a great job with the comic book info but not only does he do anime on here but he has his own facebook page as well. Its under his name and lord knows what else he has on his plate....

I just found out that FX GREENLIT POWERS PILOT. I sent them a scoop on it but it hasn't posted yet. I'm sure it will when someone has some free time. So theres a little comic book news for ya Wise :)

The Comet Empire Series was the best !

 Wiseguy, sorry, missed this over the weekend; the C2F stuff isn't part of my contract so I was told not to do it.
