You should check it out, Dennis.
Other than old stuff from my childhood like Astro Boy and Gigantor, I find anime unwatchable. The everyone-looks-like-a-child-except-for-the-odd-ones-who-are-ridiculous-caricatures character design grates on me.
I find elements or whole shows unwatchable, but some of the best genuine SF of the past 22 years has been anime. Even going through an old episode of "Starblazers" recently (not Battleship Yamato..which I also have) circa 1974/1980, it occurred to me that they stopped to give some pretty good sci-fi explanations of hyperdrive and warp..Star Trek never did that.

It is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring. Carl Sagan
