Some might think I am crazy but I love the music from the Space Battleship Yamato animation series.
In the US it is better known as Star Blazers.
The story line predates Star Trek and Star Wars.

This is one of the most accurate recordings I have ever heard on cd.
In Japan it is a fan favorite.
Many of the songs are played at concerts on a regular basis.

They have bronze statues of the characters from the series located in Tsuruga City.
