There is something so relaxing about this live performance of the Space Battleship Yamato/Star Blazers theme performed on classical instruments that it can almost make you forget about the frustration and aggravation that seems to be all around given the stress of the holidays. Take a minute to enjoy it before the reality of your life comes crashing down on you again. Oh Star Blazers, is there anything you can’t make better?
