YES!! I grew up watching Star Blazers as a kid. I loved it. Thanks for the posting.
It was daily watching for me.
Loved Star Blazers even if some of the animation and character design - especially the doe-eyed females - seemed odd to a kid unfamiliar with anime (apart from Speed Racer of course). The WWII apocalypse allegory was also lost on me.
We had a summer routine down...get to neighbor kid’s house 5 minutes before airtime, coax a decent picture out of a distant UHF signal using one those set top controls that rotated the rooftop aerial. Something to be said for working a bit for one’s entertainment.
Later I bought the VHS compilation.
There was a live action film a few years ago.
