Yamato 2520 (YAMATO2520, Yamato Nī Gō Nī Zero) was Yoshinobu Nishizaki's attempt at a sequel to Space Battleship Yamato, set several hundred years after the original series. However, Nishizaki was sued by Leiji Matsumoto for breach of copyright.[1] Ultimately, Yamato 2520 was left unfinished after only three episodes (of planned ten) were released.[2][3] The three episodes came out in laserdisc format for home media.

The OVA series features mechanical designs by Syd Mead and a soundtrack by jazz musician David Matthews.[4][5]
