Just started watching this Anime yesterday. VERY INTERESTING ANIME! It kinda reminds me of Thundersub, another Anime I watched as a kid back in the late ’80’s. The Battleship Yamato even has a very similar design to that of Thundersub. I wonder if it opens up to reveal a flight deck like Thundersub.
There is a whole page about Thundersub here. Just enter “Blue Noah” in the search box.
