Uchuu senkan Yamato

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


{YUUSEI}...and mankind is facing extinction in one
year due to the radioactive meteor bombs.

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

{housyanou}...has left on a round
trip of 296,000 light years...

{housyanou}...to the planet Iscandar to
obtain the radioactive purifier.

{SONO}The Gamilus frontline base on Pluto
was prepared for the Yamato.

{YAMATO}The Yamato has sunk
into the ocean on Pluto.

{DAGA}But the space battleship
Yamato is not yet dead.

Depth is 300 meters.

Captain, is the
Yamato going to sink ?

Rotate the ship, and we'll
command from the third bridge.

We'll play dead.
Got that ?

Blow the starboard tank.

Blowing starboard tank.

Gantz, look.

Commander Shultz.

I wish I could show my
superb ability to Lord Desler.

Send in the subs
to finish it.

Aye, sir.

Bottom Third Bridge

Captain, unknown objects
are approaching.

Submarines or torpedoes ?

Most likely submarines.

Captain, I can't
stand this anymore.

Let me form a special assault
team and attack the enemy base.

Alright, form the assault unit.

Aye, sir.



Summon Analyzer, Kato, Nemoto
and Sugiyama to the Explorer.

Kodai, this is the
analysis of Pluto.

Come on, Nanbu.

Chief Engineer Sanada,
how's the repair work going ?

At this rate, it'll
take eight more hours.

You'll join Kodai and carry out an
operation to destroy the enemy base.

Aye, sir.

Kodai, is the Explorer ready ?

Ready, sir.

Flood the Explorer dock.

Aye. Flooding the dock.

Launch the Explorer.

Gamilus submarines identified.
Approaching rapidly.

Distance, 40 km.

Prepare to fire missiles.

Preparing to fire missiles.

We'll normalize the ship.

Prepare to normalize.

Blow the port ballast tank.

Blow the main tank.

Starboard pressurization, activated.

Gyro is in
normal position.

Rotate full.

The Yamato is alive...?!

I've already told Lord Desler...
What's going to happen to me ?

Destroy it !
Destroy it !

Destroy it no matter what,
or I'll be executed.

Air generator is damaged.

Say what ?

We're in trouble.
We can't stay submerged very long.

Aihara, contact Kodai, and tell him...

..."Complete your operation
in 8 hours, or we'll..."

The Yamato's sensors couldn't find it, so that
laser cannon wasn't exposed on the surface.

I got it.

Chief Engineer, the Yamato's
air generator was damaged.

If we can't destroy the enemy's laser cannon,
it'll have to make a suicidal attack.

Oh, no ! Chief Engineer
Sanada, what should we do ?

In order to fire that cannon, there has to
be an exhaust port. If we can find it...

Captain, incoming message
from Chief Engineer Sanada.

"We're searching for the exhaust port,
but we have no idea where to look."

Alright, surface the Yamato.

Captain ?!

Surface, and let them
fire the laser cannon.

Captain, are you sure ?
If that laser hits the Yamato again...

Don't worry.

Pay attention to the opening of
those reflector plates in space.

There's a slight time gap between the
operation of the reflector and the actual shot.

The Yamato has surfaced,
Commander Shultz.

Fools. They came out
to commit suicide.

The energy charge of the
Reflective Satellite Cannon is 120%.

Prepare to fire.

Adjust firing angle.

Satellite 3, reflective plate,
20 degrees to the right.

Satellite 8,
open reflective plate.

The reflector has opened.



Fire the Reflective Satellite Cannon.

That was close.

It's useless
under the sea.

The origin of the
laser cannon was pinpointed.

It's AF3 102.

Inform Kodai.

Aye, sir.

Nanbu, fire missiles
and destroy the area.

Aye, sir.

Look, everyone.

The Yamato's missile attack.

I see, that's where the
reflector cannon is located.

It's aiming at the launch site of
the Reflective Satellite Cannon.

Gantz, launch the bombers.

Bombard them constantly, and
force the Yamato to the surface.

We're near the
designated coordinates.

Mr. Sanada, where is
the exhaust port ?

We only have three more hours.
Make them shoot the laser again.

Analyzer, contact the Yamato...

At this rate, the damage
will only get worse.

Captain, the special assault team is
asking if we can make them fire again.

Alright, surface,
and let Gamilus attack.

Aye, sir.

Blowing main tank.

Here comes the Yamato.
Withdraw the attack squadron.

Prepare to fire the
Reflective Satellite Cannon.

Bearing AP5, 39.

Satellite 3,
20 degrees to the left.


As I thought. The cannon is
hidden deep under the sea.

Chief Engineer Sanada, look.

That's it. That's where
the exhaust port is.

The Yamato has submerged.

The Yamato is acting
strangely, don't you think ?

What do you mean ?

It's like they're
making us fire on purpose.

They might be
planning something.

There they are.

We finally found it.


They're indigenous
creatures of Pluto.

Don't kill them. Use a stun gun
and put them to sleep.

Sugiyama !

Please understand.{Don't be angry.}

It's slippery,
so be careful.

Let's hurry. We've got to
finish our job before they fire.

Yes, if they fire the cannon,
we'll be broiled alive.

Analyzer, cut a hole here.


It looks like
a generator room.

It's a dead end.

Let's break through.

What's this room ?

Wait, Kodai.

Captain, the ship's
air reserves are very low.

This is bad.

Captain, anoxia patients are increasing.
Do something. I can't handle it.


Calm down.
We still have 30 minutes left.

You're next.

I'll go next.

There it is.
Kodai, that's it.


Kodai, Kodai.
Kodai, please respond.

Aihara, don't.
It's no use.

Kodai, what happened ?
Please answer.

It's time.
Start the Wave Motion engine.

Kodai, don't die.
Make sure you come back.




It was hidden in
a place like this.

Hurry !

Run !
They'll explode soon !

The Yamato has
surfaced and is advancing.

The energy charge of the
Reflective Satellite Cannon is 120%.

Satellite 2, move
5 degrees to the left.

Wait, Gantz.

The Yamato seems to be submerging by
observing the motion of our satellites.

Use different ones.

Take advantage of
Yamato's blind spot.

Use satellites 1 and 3 to
attack the Yamato from the rear.

Destroy the
Yamato this time.

I see. Open the reflector
panels of satellites 1 and 3.

Fire the Reflective Satellite Cannon.

Stern is heavily damaged.

Cannons 4 and 5
are damaged.


Extend the wings. Lift off,
and attack the Gamilus base.

An explosion
detected ahead.

What happened, Gantz ?

The Reflective Satellite Cannon exploded !

Impossible !

A tidal wave is coming ! We have
to evacuate or we'll be in danger !

Captain, the Gamilus
fleet is retreating.

The Gamilus Pluto
base is finished.

There'll be no more
meteor bombs hitting the Earth.

Our long awaited wish
has finally come true.

Lord Desler...

...the Pluto frontline base
has been totally destroyed.

Totally destroyed ?

Yes, sir. Shultz and Gantz
narrowly escaped with their fleet.

Escaped ?
So, they fled from combat.

That's unforgivable.

They aren't allowed to
return to planet Gamilus.

Tell them to fight and die.

Aye, sir.

I was thinking of migrating to Earth...

...but I suppose I have to shoot
down a little sparrow first.

Yamato, huh ?

Well done, everyone.

We were finally victorious
in space combat...

...in which the Earth
Defense Force had been defeated.

We have opened the
way for our journey.

Captain, let me
go congratulate Kodai.

I also want to go
and say, "Good work."

Live together peacefully.
This planet is yours now.

Kodai, here comes our ride from
the Yamato. It must be Shima.

And Mori, too.

The Gamilus base which
had dominated the Earth...

...as well as the planets
of the Solar System, is gone.

It shed light ahead of the journey of the
Yamato, but Gamilus's plot is far reaching.

Yamato, hurry to Iscandar.

The people of Earth are
waiting for your return.

Mankind will be extinct in 354 days.

354 days left till the destruction of Earth

Mankind will be extinct in 354 days.

Dareno tame da to omotte iruka

The Yamato, when sunk in the sea of
methane on Pluto, used the third bridge,
which is upside down.

Shunji Yamada dubbed the voice of Saburo Kato in this episode. It was fixed to Akira Kamiya from episode 13 and on.

Dare no tame demo ii ja nai ka

The indigenous creatures on Pluto were
painted with special clear blue paint and
airbrushed. Weak point of the paint is
its unevenness, and the scratches are
noticeable, too.

Minna sono ki de ireba ii

The meteor bombardment from the Pluto base,
which started in 2190, ended on Oct. 19, 2199,
thanks to the Yamato.
