As far as that ranking in the US itunes chart,I seriously have doubts about that article? NOBODY knows who these guys are! let alone downloading their song..I have to say if thats correct it was some kind of marketing ploy by the record company.

"Uchuu Senkan Yamato" was shown in the U.S. back in 1974 as "Starblazers." This was the first anime I ever saw, and I was immediately captivated by it (despite being a middle school student). Our local station showed it early in the morning on weekdays, and I would watch while waiting for the school bus. Usually I missed the end of every episode because I had to catch the bus.

My re-introduction to anime didn't occur until the early 1990s, when I saw shows like "Ranma 1/2" and "Tenchi Muyo." I particularly like Tenchi Muyo, but there wasn't enough anime of comparable quality to keep me interested. Finally, around 2000, Japanese shows became more available in the U.S., and I've been watching this stuff ever since.
