Lensman (ＳＦ新世紀 レンズマン SF Shinseiki Lensman, lit. "Science Fiction New Century Lensman") is a Japanese animated film based on the Lensman novels by E. E. Smith, produced by Madhouse and directed by Kazuyuki Hirokawa and Yoshiaki Kawajiri, the later director of Ninja Scroll.
The film was dubbed by Harmony Gold USA as Lensman: Secret of the Lens in 1988. Harmony Gold's dub had many scenes cut for content and time, and a new soundtrack, with some tracks carried over from their previous titles Robotech II: The Sentinels and Robotech: The Movie.
In 1990, the film was given a redub by Streamline Pictures, which left the original soundtrack intact and left it uncut. This new dub contained many of the same voice actors as the Harmony Gold dub, some of which reprised their roles (Kerrigan Mahan as Kimball Kinnison and Michael McConnohie as Peter Buskirk).
