FUNimation Entertainment is offering SciFi Japan readers a chance to win the 2-Disc Blu-ray/DVD Combo Pack of the live-action sci-fi epic SPACE BATTLESHIP YAMATO (宇宙戦艦ヤマト, Supeesu Batorushippu Yamato, 2010).
Based on the incredibly popular 1970’s anime series of the same name — shown in the US as STAR BLAZERS — SPACE BATTLESHIP YAMATO was directed by Takashi Yamazaki (RETURNER, the ALWAYS- SUNSET ON THIRD STREET films) and stars Takuya Kimura (REDLINE, HOWL’S MOVING CASTLE). The story is set in the year 2199. The Gamilas, a mysterious alien enemy, has been decimating the Earth to unlivable and irradiated conditions for the past 5 years. Humankind now lives underground to escape the radiation, but with only a year until extinction. One day while roaming the surface of Earth, former pilot Susumu Kodai (Takuya Kimura) comes across a capsule sent from the planet Iskandar that reveals there is technology that has the power to eradicate the radiation from Earth. A chosen crew of the Space Battleship Yamato takes off on the long trip to Iskandar with hopes to save the Earth.
