  1. Just finished reading Star Blazers Rebirth. It was amazing. The artwork is beautiful but it was the story itself that really captured my imagination. I loved the fact Nova was a Captian and Derek had given up his career. It really yanked at my heart that Nova was supposed to be dead. Bringing together the present and the past as well as an alternate universe that brought in Yuki and Kodai was brilliant. I have been a Star Blazers fan for more years then I care to admit and I am delighted to know there are other people who are just as passionate about those characters as I am . I have just recently started writing fan fiction which is a little unnerving given the quality of stories like this. Anyway just wanted to say I loved your comic. You are amazingly talented . Thanks for sharing that talent.

  2. Holy… this was one of the most amazing things I’ve ever read in the web.

    I’m sorry, it’s hard to write when you can’t see the screen properly. Onion ninjas seem to be cutting especially mightily right now.

    Thank you. As someone who grew up with the original Starblazers, this was an awesome ride.

  3. As someone who grew up on Star Blazers, and still gets goose bumps when I hear the theme song, I loved this. Great artwork and the story fits right into the Star Blazers universe. Very well done!

    Now, go do more!

  4. Wow…..i actually teared up at reading this, all of it, im only 23 and just got into starblazers, but i fell in love with the series, and just…wow, im at a loss for words, other than….this was amazing.

  5. What an amazing story. It perfectly captured the spirit (literally) and feeling at the heart of the series. Well done. Bravo. 🙂

    • It wasn’t completely destroyed. It was in the process of being torn apart when the rescue arrived. It was traveling so fast that almost no time passed for the A2 crew due to relativity and space/time dilation.

  6. Oh my god. I started reading this and just couldn’t stop. You, sir, are an unparalleled storyteller. I’m going to read this again to my children starting tomorrow night. Thank you for all of the hard work and effort you poured into this.

  7. This was… a thing. A good friend of mine told me about this webcomic a while back, after watching SBY Resurrection, specifically the earlier parts in which Wildstar was having hallucinations of all those who died on the Argo. After finally finding it, I started reading, and did not stop until it was done. Put simply this was brilliant. I enjoyed it very much, even if it did leave me emotionally drained by the end. You had me hooked every second, and goddamn it, I even teared up at parts. At this point I’m just rambling so I’ll wrap it up; This was good. Thank you.

    • Thank you very much. It’s already been ten years since this project was finished, but I’m glad to know it’s still out there making friends.

  8. My brother Doug, and I…were two more of those millions of nameless kids, who ran home from school every day, to catch an episode of Star Blazers, on our local affiliate station. As it’s tale was told, in “serial” form… we became enthralled by that story… First of a Starforce created to take on the might of Gamilon…and save the earth, with Starsha’s gift….and then the same group defying the authorities of Earth, to give Prince Zordar and company a dose of humility, and the bitter taste of defeat. This was not merely the purely black and white tale, of good vs. evil… It was far more complex than that. Tim Eldred, your story is far more complex than that, also. So MANY amazingly good plot elements and twists, that it kept the story from being at all predictable. Art was every bit as good, as the Comico comic, my hat is off to you there, as well. I agree with certain reviewers, before me. This plot, and the way that you wrote it, keeping the reader off balance… with unpredictability, and complexity? Yoshinobu Nishizaki would be rightly proud of your effort. This story holds to the standard of excellence, first established by that gentleman, and Mr. Leiji Matsumoto as well. You have done a successful job of carrying on the Argo’s (and while you were at it, Yamato’s!!) amazing legacy. Take a bow.

  9. the star force
    for those of us who grew up on star blazers in the 80’s we all know that no one paid a higher price during the five years of interstellar war against the alien gamilon empire then those who served on the yamato in the defense of earth, humanity and mankind .

    Strength. Passion. Love. Brotherhood. Teamwork . Unity. Commitment. Dedication. Determination. Respect. Compassion, … Loyalty, Duty, Selflessness ,Sacrifice, YAMATO
    you had to of grown up a child of the very early 1980’s to be able to understand That space battleship yamato /starblazers was a war story and for anyone who grew up a life long fan they knew all too well what it took to fill the shoes of those who lived fought and died in the defense of humanity and our world.

    ask anyone in the know and they will tell you the same exact thing as i do now.
    in their way these people were autobots in every proper sense of the word people and what we should all strive to be as people today imho

    yamato is an amazing tribute to the indomitability of the human spirit in the face of a a hostile & unforgiving universe, stated with bravery & determination & heroic fighting spirit,. one that held together as much by the collective will of what remains of her surviving crew as by the rivets & welds of her tired hull, pure audacity given form her crew getting by on sheer grit , tenacity and fighting spirit making the impossible possible through sheer force of will and unrelenting heroism

    the yamato is more then bolts and bulkheads, she is a living thing , strengthened by everyone who served and died while serving alongside her in battle n the defense of planet earth and the human race . she is not just another ship , shes the mirror of our eternal soul
