Definetely, without a doubt, Be Forever has the best beginning of any Yamato movie or series! The Dark Empire's invasionary force is truly awesome and formidable, and Earth's solar system gets its biggest asskicking in the shortest time ever. Some of the Empire's attack vehicles resemble mecha from the War of the Worlds, book AND movie. Empire sky-troopers are incredibly sadistic in their first attack on Earth. The Dark Empire wants revenge on Yamato and Earth for their defeat in the previousthird movie Yamato New Voyage. We see Alex Wildstar again and...another member of the Wildstar family. There is a scene at the Empire's homeworld that is aweing and surreal, I had to rewind and watch it twice initially. The sap factor was heavy in Be Forever even for a Yamato storyline. The last explosion is the biggest explosion ever in Yamato.
