English-language Magazine Coverage

Though entire forests probably had to be clearcut for the enormous amount of Yamato publishing in Japan, the amount of ink spent on Star Blazers in America is comparatively miniscule – which only makes these few examples that much more important. All the Star Blazers content from these magazines is presented here in full for the sake of posterity, along with a few that joyfully skip straight back to Space Battleship Yamato.
