Episode 25

Iscandar, the Dying Planet of Love!!

( Air date: Mar 23, 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}

Altitude 500 km. Entering satellite
orbit to calculate landing coordinates.

Ohta, resume analysis.

Planet Iscandar has continents
and oceans similar to Earth's.

I got it. The guidance beacon
from Starsha has restarted.

Aihara, put it on
the main speaker.

Yes, sir.

I'm Starsha of Iscandar.

I welcome the
crew of the Yamato.

Please land in the
ocean near the Mother Town.

I'll guide you through, so set your
controls according to the guide beacon.

Current pressure on the surface
is 980 millibars, temperature...

In 2199, Earth was attacked by
Gamilus, an invader from space...

{juuman}...and mankind was faced with extinction in
one year due to the radioactive poison.

{sonokoro}Planet Iscandar, located
148,000 light-years away...

{sonokoro}...sent a message to Earth about giving them a radioactive contamination purifier.

{sono}The space battleship Yamato is
the ambassador sent to receive it.

{yamato}The Yamato overcame many
supernatural phenomena...

{yamato}...and also defeated
its arch enemy, Gamilus.

{ima}Now they have finally
arrived at Planet Iscandar.

Hey Kodai,
look over there.

It's Starsha.

She looks like Yuki.

Welcome to Iscandar.
I'm Starsha.

I'm Susumu Kodai.


If you were on the Yamato,
why didn't you tell me ?

No, I'm...

Sarsia ?

So the woman who
died on Mars was...

What ?
Sarsia died ?

Then you are...

I'm a woman from Earth.
My name is Mori Yuki.

Please tell me what happened
to my sister Sarsia on Mars.

Her shuttle was shot down by Gamilus
and it crash-landed on Mars.

Shima here, and myself,
found her first...

...but unfortunately, it was
after she had already passed away.

But we were able to
retrieve your message...

...and discovered how to
construct the Wave Motion Engine.

So, she sacrificed herself
to fulfill her responsibility.

Earth owes her
a great debt.

But it's still you
who will save the Earth.

I apologize for testing your determination and
strength by asking you to come all this way.

However, only you can open
the way to your own future.

So that's the purifier that will get rid
of the radioactive contamination on Earth.

It's not built, but we've received
parts and the schematics...

{WATASHI}...and I'll finish it in the onboard factory
before the Yamato returns to Earth.

I'm counting on you.

I wish I could build it here, and ask
the engineers of Iscandar to test it...

{JIKAN}...but we don't have time, because
we're 2 months behind schedule.

{KYUU}We were supposed to return in the 9th month,
but it's going to be the 11th at this rate.

That's serious. One mistake
will lead to a disaster.

Mankind could be extinct
by the time we get home.

That's absurd.

That could happen, so we have to do
our best. That's all we can do now.

Incredible. This is Utopia
at the height of technology.

Look to the left. That island
is entirely made of diamond.

Thank you for attending
her funeral, Kodai, Yuki.

Now she has returned
to the soil of Iscandar.

Ummm, Starsha...?

What is it ?

We've looked around many places,
but I haven't seen anyone except you.

Where are the rest
of your people ?


You mean all the people
of Iscandar are dead ?

Yes. My sister and I are from the
royal family, and we were the last.

Now that Sarsia is gone,
I'm the last one.

How terrible.
How did that happen ?

It was our fate.

Everything has its
own fated lifespan.

{KONO}This planet, Iscandar, and
planet Gamilus are twins...

{KONO}...both of which are
reaching their final moments.

{SOKODE}Gamilus tried to conquer Earth, but they
ended up destroying themselves in the end.

{WATASHI}We, the people of Iscandar, didn't want
to bother the people of other planets...

...and quietly
accepted our fate.

Let's go inside the Town.

I want you
to meet someone.

Is there somone
besides you ?

A person from Earth.

A person from Earth ?

Please take him back
to Earth on the Yamato.

Is that you, Susumu...?

Brother !

Susumu !

You're alive, Brother !

Brother !


Sorry for coming
in without asking.

It's alright.

He's Kodai Mamoru.

It seems that he was
taken captive as a specimen.

{TOKOROGA}But the ship transporting him was damaged
and drifted near Iscandar, so I saved him.

{SORE}He had severe injuries
and was very ill...

{SORE}...but he's alright now,
and he can go home.


You love Kodai Mamoru, don't you ?

By the way, is it true that we won't make
it even if we bring the purifier home ?

No, that's a possibility.
It's not for sure.

But that could
happen, right ?


{JINRUI}...suppose mankind is extinct,
and we are the only survivors...

{YAPPARI}...don't you think we should
chose this planet to live on ?

Yabu, what's on your mind ?

So that's the Yamato.

Captain, Kodai Mamoru reporting.


Kodai, I'm glad you're alive.

Kodai Mamoru is alive !

Oh, Captain, pardon me.

I don't mind.
You're classmates.

You must be happy.


You aren't a ghost, are you ?

You haven't changed at all.

This is great.

Oh, did you call me ?
What do you mean by important ?

Sorry to bother you, but I have something
I want to discuss. Please, come with me.

Okay. Let go of me.
You're hurting me.

I was unconscious
until a few days ago.

I owe Starsha
for saving me.

What incredible medical technology,
to revive a near dead person.


Now, go ahead.
Go ahead.

This is great.
Here you go.


...why don't we ask Starsha
to come to Earth with us ?

Why not, Starsha ?

You'd be able to live
happily, if you do so.

Even if the
planet is dying...

...there are still several thousand
years until Iscandar is totally ruined.

I cannot abandon it.


Besides ?

There are people I cannot
get along with on Earth.

Come with me.

What're they doing ?

It seems like some people
want to stay on this planet.

It's the White Castle on Diamond Island.
They look as if they are going to seize it.

How stupid.
I'll stop them immediately.

Please do so. That island is supposed
to sink into the ocean tonight.

Say what ?

The seismograph has been recording
unusual tectonic movement in the mantle.

The corruption of the crust on planet
Gamilus might be affecting this planet.

I'll be back.

Yabu and some others
have left the Yamato.

I apologize for
my poor supervision.

Incoming message from Yabu.
I'm switching to the main speaker.

Is Kodai there ?

You idiot !
Come back !

I'm here.
This is Kodai.

The twelve of us request
permission to stay on this planet.

How can I do that ? Come back to the
ship, immediately. That's an order.

I thought you'd say so, but
I have no intention of coming back.

Yabu, don't you care about Earth
and its people ? Hey, Yabu !

We left, because we thought
about the future of mankind.

{oretachi}Even if the Yamato is involved in
an accident, or mankind is extinct...

{chikyuu} ...as long as we live here,
Earth won't lose its descendants.

{mochi}If the Yamato accomplishes its mission...

{mochi}...Man will live on both planets,
and that's even better.

Hey, are you crazy ? How could you
create descendants without a woman ?

Don't worry.
We have a bride.

Say what ?


Yuki !

Don't even think about
threatening us. That's all.

You took her as a
hostage. How dirty of you.

This will end
our transmission.

Wait, Yabu !

That place is dangerous. Diamond
Island will sink beneath the ocean tonight.

Kodai, I thought you
were smarter than that.

It's true. I'm not just saying that, Iscandar's
seismograph indicates it will happen.

Get out of there !
I'm begging you !

Come in !
Hey, Yabu, respond !

A tsunami is approaching !

Shima, get us outta here.

Chief Engine Operator
Tokugawa, please help.

Kato, are you there ?

Get the choppers ready, and
prepare for a rescue operation.

Activate the sub engines.
All hands, fasten seatbelts.

Take off preparations completed.
It's time to head back to Earth.

Remember, you have command.

All hands, take your positions
and prepare for take off.

Aye, sir.

I'm sorry for all the trouble.
But still, Yabu was my favorite subordinate.

Please, forgive him.

Starsha, are you sure you
don't want to come with us ?

I appreciate your offer,
but I can't leave Iscandar.

I see.

Well then,
please take care.


Are you sure it's okay
to let Kodai Mamoru go home ?

You can't find love by
accepting an established fate.

You told us that we should open
the way to the future ourselves.

Goodbye, Starsha.


I love you...Mamoru.

Starsha !

Brother !

Susumu, forgive me.

Brother, take care !

Hang in there, Susumu !

Goodbye !

My brother and Starsha are
the Adam and Eve of Iscandar.

Yuki, let's go home.

Let's head back to Earth !

Now the Yamato is
heading back to Earth.

The journey of 148,000
light-years is long.

Fly, Yamato.

The people of Earth
are waiting for you.

Mankind will be
extinct in 131 days.

131 days left until the destruction of Earth

Who was that for ?{Dareno tame da to omotte iruka}

The Yamato arrives at Iscandar. From Sanada's dialogue, it should be the 220th day, and 18 days after the battle on Planet Gamilus. The Yamato must have repaired the main turrets and rebuilt the third bridge.

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

After the flashback of Sarsia, the background changes to night.

When Kodai orders the Yamato to take off to avoid the tidal wave, the bridge cell is placed over Kodai, which was a simple photographing mistake.

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

The Yamato stayed on Iscandar for 11 days,
and leaves the planet on May 30th.

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