** One of the biggest changes in the 2010 film, where [[spoiler: [[NotHisSled Iskandar and Garmillas are both the same planet]] ]], was used in a rejected script from when Disney was trying to make a ''Star Blazers'' film in the 1990s, though some of the details are different.

*** It's within living memory ''now'', a few veterans from the Pacific are still around. But there were indeed a lot more of them in 1979, when a 53-year-old would've been 19 when the war ended.

* OlderThanTheyThink: ''Star Blazers'' is occasionally {{MisBlamed}} for being derivative of ''StarWars,'' which is impossible because ''Space Battleship Yamato'' premiered in 1974. On the other hand, ''Yamato'' arguably ''was'' inspired on some level by ''WesternAnimation/YellowSubmarine'' (1968) and ''WesternAnimation/StarTrekTheAnimatedSeries'' (1973).

** NewerThanTheyThink: As Youtube comments will tell you, there are also a lot of latter-day fans who think the Death Star was based on the Comet Empire. Not likely, as the Comet Empire was introduced in 1978.
** Yamato did benefit from the popularity of ''StarWars''; after that movie broke box office records in the US, Series 1 of Yamato was edited down to a theatrical movie, where it outperformed Star Wars at the Japanese box office. Yamato series 1 was not very popular when it first aired, thus the four year gap between Series 1 and the movie that regenerated interest in the franchise.
* SeinfeldIsUnfunny: A Dub example. ''Star Blazers'' was one of the earliest examples where the dubbers actually ''gave a damn'' about how the series was dubbed, and was astonishingly faithful for the time. Compared to today's dubs, it's a {{Macekre}}.
* ValuesDissonance: In the live action film, the speech about how the ''Yamato'' previously sailed on a hopeless mission in the time of Japan's greatest need might not have exactly the intended reaction among non-Japanese audiences [[WorldWarTwo if they think about it]].

** Hell, this may well explain why the original show's title was changed to ''Star Blazers'' for the American release. Remember: the Pacific War was still within living memory in 1979.

*** For ''Anime/SpaceBattleshipYamato2199'', they got together around 40 of the greatest anison singers, and redid the original theme music. As you can expect, they managed to take the CMOA levels of the song UpToEleven.

** The [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7gHORDBZuOA original theme music]] definitely qualifies. At least, it's a damned good EarWorm.
