It is absolutely considered a classic.  It was created and directed by 
the creative genius Leiji Matsumoto.  There were really four early 
anime series that are regarded as influencing the direction of all 
space/robot epics to come: Mazinger Z (1972), Mobile Suit Gundam 
(1979), Macross (1982) and Space Battleship Yamato (1974).

So, yeah, old classic. :)

Unfortunately, only the Americanized Star Blazers seems to be available 
on DVD in R1 right now...
