Episode 19

Homeland in Space !
Mother Sheds Tears for Your Sake

( Air date: Feb 9, 1975 )

Farewell, Earth.{Saraba chikyuu yo}

A ship is taking off...{Tabidatsu fune wa}

...it's the space battleship Yamato.

Space Battleship


It's set for Iscandar...

...carrying the fate of mankind.

We'll return for sure.{Kanarazu koko he kaette kuru to}

Smile at all the people waving their hands.{te wo furu hito ni egao de kotae}

Leaving the Galactic System
on a long voyage to Iscandar.{Ginga wo hanare Iscandar he harubaru nozomu}

Space battleship Yamato!{Ucyuu senkan yamato}

In 2199, Earth was attacked by Meteor Bombs
from the mysterious planet Gamilus...

{SONO}...and mankind was facing extinction in one
year due to the radioactive contamination.

{CHIKYUU}The space battleship Yamato, the first
Earth ship to exceed the speed of light...

{CHIKYUU}...has left for Iscandar to
obtain the radioactive purifier.

Galactic System

Iscandar is 148,000 light years away in the Large Magellanic Cloud.

Large Magellanic Cloud

{GENZAI}Their current destination is
the mid-point, Planet Balan.

{YAMATO}Balan appears to be a beacon
in space for the Yamato...

{YAMATO}...but it's also a Gamilus supply
base for the invasion of Earth.

Planet Balan

{Domel}After being assigned as commander of
the Solar System region operations...

{Domel}...a famed admiral, Domel, has just
arrived on Planet Balan with his fleet.

{BALAN}Using Balan as
his main base...

{BALAN}...Admiral Domel is like a space wolf
sharpening its fangs to kill the Yamato.

Admiral Domel

The Yamato is 4 days away
from Planet Balan.

Take a deep breath.

And stop.

Now let it out,
and open your mouth.

Nothing seems
to be wrong.

But my ears are
ringing so hard.

You say you're pale, have no
appetite, and can't sleep, huh ?

Indeed. Your pulse is fast,
and your blood pressure is low.

You're mentally exhausted, Aihara.

After staying in this ship's enclosed
spaces for more than a hundred days...

...you might as
well be stressed out.

Submit this to Chief
Environmental Officer Mori...

...and receive therapy
in the Image Room.

Thank you very much.

If only he drank sake...

Please, sit there.
I'm setting up now.

Aihara, you're from
Iwate, aren't you ?

It's a nice place.
What kind of music do you want ?

Kitakawa Yakyoku.

Okay, you'll be relaxed.
Just a moment.

Begin 3D holographic
image therapy.




This is fake !

It's fake.

Fake. Fake.

This is fake.
This is all fake !


Hey, move.
Move aside.

Hey, let us through.
Step aside.

It's the first communication since we left
the Solar System. It brings back memories.

It's impressive to be able to establish
communications 70,000 light years from Earth.

Yes, you're right.

Hey, where's Chief Communications
Officer Aihara ? He's not around.

This is the Yamato. This is
Captain Okita of the Yamato.

United Nations Yamato Project
Headquarters, do you copy ?

This is United Nations
Yamato Project Headquarters.

You're coming in
clear, Captain Okita.

It's been about 100 days
since you left Earth.

What is your prediction for the remaining
round trip time from Iscandar ?

The Yamato executes a warp twice
a day at 0800 and 1600 ship time.

{KONO}We travel 1200 light
years with each warp.

{KOREMADE}We're behind by 61,000 light years and 51 days, due to obstacles and enemy attacks...

{KONO}...but thanks to warping...

{KONO}...we should be able to return in 152 days
after retrieving the radiation purifier. Over.

I'm relieved.
So relieved.

Since the Yamato destroyed
the Gamilus Pluto base...

...we haven't had to suffer from
any more meteor bombs attacks.

The problem is the
radioactive poison.

Everyone on Earth is waiting
for the Yamato's return...

...enduring the fear
of the radioactive poison.

We're alright, so
do your best. Over.

We're alright, too.

This will end our transmission.
Good luck to the people on Earth.

That's a bunch of bull !

Yes, the Yamato is capable of warping,
but no one has ever been to Iscandar.

{MADA}No one knows the true
identity of the Gamilusians !

{WAREWARE}Gamilus is waiting for us in
this vast empty space before us !

{ISCANDAR}There's no guarantee that we'll
be able to reach Iscandar !

{SONNA}Do you think the people on Earth
believe in this hopeless Yamato ?

{CHIKYUU}Riots must be breaking
out everywhere on Earth.

Chief Communications Officer Aihara,
how do you know of Earth's status ?


Although I was hospitalized because
of my illness during this journey...

...thanks to my capable officers, the Yamato
is steadily approaching Planet Balan.

I'm feeling well today,
so I invited you for dinner.

Let's have a toast to the
beautiful future of Earth.



For the safety
of Earth, cheers.

Captain, please get well soon.

Dr. Sado,
I'm counting on you.

Too bad Aihara
can't be here.

I gave him a shot.

Then I told him to stay in
his room and get some rest.

Captain, may I ask
you a question ?

Go ahead.

What Aihara said earlier
today has been bothering me.

Will the Yamato be
able to reach Iscandar ?

Will they give us
the radiation purifier ?

Will the Yamato be able to return
to Earth before mankind is extinct ?

Shima, that doesn't sound
like the Chief Navigator.

Don't you have any doubts ?
Is this journey so certain to you ?

No, that's...

What about you, Yuki ?

Mr. Sanada, Chief
Engine Operator Tokugawa ?

Dr. Sado, what about you ?

No one's sure,
and we all have concerns.

{AURNOWA}Although there are differences
in how strongly you feel...

...Aihara's outburst represented the
concerns of the entire crew of the Yamato.


Yes ?

Why don't we
believe in ourselves ?

Nothing is sure in life.

One step ahead is
darkness in our lives...

...but if you're overly afraid,
you won't accomplish anything.

Overcoming our fears, and believing in our
future is an important battle in our minds.

Oh, Chief ?

I'll take over.

Are you feeling better ?

Why shouldn't I be ?
I'm not ill.

I'll leave it to you.

This is Yamato,
this is Yamato.

Is it Yoshikazu ?

Mother, can you hear me ?

Is it alright
to call so often ?

You have a special transmitter
I made, so no one should know.

How is Father doing ?


Food is running out, and riots
break out nearly every day.


He was concerned about me,
and joined the riot last time.

If I knew that he'd come back like this,
I wouldn't have let him go.




Isn't Yoshikazu back yet ?

He's back. Look.


It's Yoshikazu...



Father !

Father !

Father ! Father !

So that's what is
causing your stress.

That's right.

When I realized that communications
were re-established a few days ago...

...I called home
without thinking.

And you continued your private calls
without the Captain's permission.

That's right !
So what ?!

Can you blame me ?!

I'll report this
to the Captain.

What's so wrong about
worrying about my family ?!

Can you ignore the death
of a family member ?!

Is this ship full of a
bunch of demons ?!

Aihara !

Shima, why don't we stop this reckless
journey and head back to Earth ?

My father died,
and my mother will, too !

If I die, I want to do so where
my father and mother lived !

Shima, head back to Earth.

Yes, we will, after we obtain the
radiation purifier from Iscandar.

Aihara !

Shima, did Aihara
come up here ?

He did, and he ran that way.
He was acting strange.

That's why I'm following him.
I have to take him to sickbay.

Who's there ?

Wait ! Who is it ?!
What's going on ?!

Hello, this is
Kato on watch.

Oh, Chief Kodai...

Aihara did ?

That's right.

What ? You saw
someone's shadow ?

That's it. It must be Aihara.
Okay, I'll be right there.

Aihara seems to be
hiding near the hangar.

Alright, let's go.

it's terrible, Kodai.

When I was reading a book and
looked out the window, I saw Aihara...

H...he got off the ship ?!

Father, Mother, I'll
return home soon !

Planet Balan

Solar System Region Mission Planning HQ

Admiral Domel

I found this in the Ruby System.
It's quite rare.

You seem to be quite relaxed. Do you have a plan to defeat the Yamato, already ?

Of course. The Yamato is
heading for Balan now.

{YAMATO}They probably don't realize
Balan is a Gamilus base.

{YAMATO}Balan is only a way point for the
Yamato. It's like a lighthouse.

{SOKONI}That's where we have an opportunity.
I'll draw the Yamato to Balan, and destroy it.

{DAGA}But before that, I took
another measure just in case.

Such as...?

{YAMATO}It's a simple plan to disturb
the morale of the Yamato crew.

{YAMATO}I re-established communications
between the Yamato and Earth...

{YAMATO}...so they can see the
horrible reality on Earth.

{NINGEN}Men can't be calm
in such a situation.

How did you make
communications possible ?

{RELAY}I positioned a relay probe
just behind the Yamato.

Black Tiger team,
this is Kodai.

When you find Aihara, use the
call sign SP03. Got that ?

An antenna ?

A relay probe ?

This isn't from the Yamato.

But for what ?


I see, communication wasn't re-established
naturally, it was a trap by Gamilus.

I was trapped by their plan,
and my morale was affected.

{JINRUI}Gamilus is the one who killed my father
and is driving mankind into extinction.

{ORE}And I was on the
Yamato to fight them !

{SOUDA}That's right !
Where's the Yamato ?

{SOUDA}I have to return
to the Yamato !

The Yamato...

No !
No, no, no !

I was left behind !

What's that ?

Hey !

SP03, SP03, this is Kodai.
I found Aihara.

Aihara, are you alright ?


This is a Gamilus relay probe.
Kodai, we must destroy it.


Aihara, you shoot.



So communication with
Earth is lost again.

Next time we can call them
is when we return to Earth.

Right. We have to believe
that day will come.

Hey, Aihara, look.

There are your friends
who came out to search for you.

I caused them so much trouble.
I wonder if they'll forgive me.

Of course they will,
because that's what friends are.

This is Kodai.

I destroyed a Gamilus relay
probe and rescued Aihara.

Returning to
the Yamato. Over.

The Yamato continues
its journey to Iscandar.

What will the future hold for the Yamato
at the halfway point, Planet Balan ?

Hurry, Yamato. The people of
Earth are waiting for your return.

Mankind will extinct in 255 days.

Only 255 days are left.

255 days left until the destruction of Earth

When Sado hands over a prescription to Aihara, an orderly serves sake to Sado's cup,
but it was edited out.

It doesn't matter who it was for...{Dare no tame demo ii ja nai ka}

Okita has a dinner with the upper ranking officers. Judging from the blue arrow and white uniform, the one who served wine was a member of the Living Environment group.

Yuki appears in a sexy see-through negligee.

...everyone should take it as theirs.{Minna sono ki de ireba ii}

Kodai saves Aihara in space with his Cosmo Zero. It was supposed to be a single seater, but it had a rear seat.

In the hearts of men, who are leaving on a long journey...{Tabidattsu otoko no mune ni wa}
