Let’s Go Blaze Some Stars, Bitches


Is Star Blazing a euphemism for marijuana use? Shouldn’t it be? While you consider that, please be aware that Japan is remaking the classic anime series Star Blazers — known over there as Space Battleship Yamato — set to premiere next April. I’m not exactly Star Blazers savvy, but this looks like a better animated Star Blazers to me, which I assume is fine with Yamato fans on both sides of the Pacific. I bet it’s also fine with marijuana users, too, actually. They seem pretty easygoing about most things. (Via io9)
