Leiji Matsumoto's epic space opera started as a manga that became a TV series that ran from 1978-1981, eventually totaling 113 episodes. In 1979, Rintaro was brought on to helm the theatrical version of the story. The result is not only an anime classic, but a bona fide classic of the sci-fi genre. Leijiverse is an excellent and informative web site dedicated to Leiji Matsumoto and his works. The soundtrack for this feature, composed by Nozomi Aoki, is alternately uptempo (with "disco strings"), haunting, jazzily playful and emotionally wrought. Definitely good stuff.
