I was actually looking for the *slow* version.

What the hell is going on here?

Yes, yes, I know: it is a heavy metal cover of the Space Cruiser Yamato theme song, by the novelty Japanese pop band Animetal.  I have seen SCY, both in its original form and as the hacked-up American version known as Star Blazers.  I have gotten drunk at college and chanted “USE THE WAVE MOTION GUN!” at the television screen along with my friends… and sometimes while even watching the show.  I have watched the movie that later got revised into the second season, while my then-girlfriend read a translation from a printed out script.  I am no otaku, but I am at least operating from a position with some basic knowledge.

All that being said: what the hell is going on, here?  What kind of lunatic lets anybody handle a katana blade with ungloved hands?
