Princess Millenia (which is a prequel to the Universe of Captain Harlock)
Captain Harlock
and either Galaxy Express 999 or Queen Emeralda afterwards... both are related to the mythos, but not necessarily to the timeline. big grin

That's right. You just reminded me of more 80s anime!

- Saint Seiya
- Transformers (i think that was my first)

I forgot to mention Akira .....considered the beginning of the second wave of anime fandom!

WrathfulDwarf
Voltron!

Do keep in mind that certain animes series shown during the 80's were actually made in the 70's in Japan.

badsymbiote
Voltron-The Lion Force!
StarBlazers--Thundercats was good.

The first film to spawn my love for Japanese animation was
The Last Unicorn--I was like 9 or 10 when that came out. Made by the same guy that did Thundercats. Takashi...God, what was his name? Anybody remember? That's gonna bug me til I remember.

Love Transformers and GI Joe, but I wouldn't categorize them as anime.

I've stumped everyone else with this one, I may as well try you guys.

In the early to mid 80's there was a show on that I have no recall of the title and no one has been able to help me out from the description.

From what I can remember it was about a guy on a spaceship who was separated from his daughter and he's on a quest to find her. I remember that apparently the girl was telepathic because he kept having visions / messages from her.

That's really all I remember except that I really liked the show and that it came on weekday mornings before school, between episodes of Voltron and Robotech. I'd always get up early just to watch them. I don't remember the exact station it was on except that it was a station out of New York.

Does any of this ring any bells for anyone?

Hi Void,

The Cartoon/Anime is "Ulysses 31" and it was his son, the girl was an alien race that has telepathic powers all the same teaching his son to communicate with his father's mind 'Ulysses' ...

here is the INTRO, might bring you back...
in youtube /watch?v=OZ4c1X5ene8

this is the wiki info : in wikipedia /wiki/Ulysses_31

this is one of those great series that got less media attention it came out same time as Saint Seya...so you can imagine no other cartoon/anime at that time that was so addicting than Saint Seya, Speed Racer in the states, but yes Ulysses 31 also is great but less room coz all the kids where either stuck with Macross/Robotech or Transformers and G.I. Joe...and don't forget HE-MAN...LOL

All of that, and Lupin III.

But for clarity, when did G Gundam originally air? It was one of my two or three favorite Gundam continuities, and it seems like one of the older ones, barring the original.

Can anybody help me? I watched the begining of an anime show & I can't remember the name. This would have been arround '86, the premise was: There was a Princess (could have been a queen) from earth on an expedition across the galaxy. I believe there was a certain crisis on earth, so her expedition was to get somewhere, retrieve an item to end said crisis. Her space suit was white & pink. Along the way she stoped at different planets to pick up escorts/bodyguards. One was from Neptune, he was the brains, his space suit had foot fins & his space car/craft could dive underwater. He also carried a calculator-like tool to calculate different scenarios, and a trident. The second was a convict exiled to Mars I think, he was a volatile characer so to control him she placed a metal "crown" of sorts that would give him pain if he got out of hand. She wore a similar crown that would fire a beam into his whenever she crossed her arms infront of her in an X, thus delivering pain. The last was a hefty character with brute strength, I forget what his "power" was & his planet. The princess's look was similar to Queen Millenia, except that she wore a white & pink space suit, her space helmet (also white & pink) had a jewel that shot a beam when she crossed her arms in an X.

That's all I can remember, I began watching a couple of episodes, my parents moved out of the country so I lost track of the show. I would have been 8, so I don't remember it in detail.
Any help would be appreciated!

That was a sci-fi adaptation of journey to the west; in america it was called "spaceketeers", and had a very limited release. Apparently though it was very popular in some European countries where it was called Starzinger.
