Space Battleship Yamato Series 1: Episode Music Cue Listings

     The below table lists the music score cues used in each episode of Season 1 of Star Blazers/Space Battleship Yamato.  It lists the track numbers from the Space Battleship Yamato Sound Almanac 1974-1 release (examined on the main page).  Because it also describes all of the dramatic elements happening during the music, it also ends up being a functional episode guide to the first season.
