Captain Harlock

Going into this film, I had no prior knowledge of the source material or previous adaptations of Captain Harlock. Though reading the synopsis and watching some of its trailers, I could see a lot of time and money went into its production. And it didn't disappoint in that regard. It looked fucking amazing!

Characters and Plot development. (6). I must say the biggest gripe I had with this movie was the fact that most of the MCs (Yama and Ezra especially) aren't really likable nor have audience investment to their agendas. They sort of just "fill" their roles rather than own their on-screen moments, its read more

I'm lucky enough to have seen this in the theater last night, so I thought I'd add my thoughts after seeing it!

I've been looking forward to Captain Harlock being released because the animation looked amazing. I have to say, it did not disappoint. I was blown away by the CGI! It was beautiful. I can't even imagine how much time they spent on this, but I hope it's done well in theaters here. Major props to the animations team.

I've never seen the original series and went into the film knowing next to nothing about the plot. I think the story was a bit lacking and read more

Captain Harlock is one of the most endearing figures in all of anime. Since the original Space Pirate Captain Harlock series premiered in 1979, the character has been in numerous spin-offs and re-iterations throughout the proceeding decades; each in a different continuity with the only commonality being a few key characters and the space-opera setting (sans Gun Frontier, which is a western). The latest reimagining is 2013 CGI animated action spectacle directed by Shinji Aramaki of Appleseed fame. It's a grand-scale sweeping space epic with big themes and bravado to match, attached to a somewhat convoluted sci-fi plot. In other words, it is a movie read more

Legendary anime/manga creator Leiji Matsumoto perfected dystopian before the rest of the world even knew what it was. His vast universe is rife with it, from Space Battleship Yamato‘s dying Earth to Galaxy Express 999‘s bleak future, Matsumoto does dystopian better than anyone else. No where is this more evident than in his legendary manga-cum-anime, Space Pirate Captain Harlock.

Captain Harlock made his TV debut in 1978, and he’s been back many times over the years with varying degrees of success. The latest incarnation, a big budget CGI fest, premiered in Japan last fall. It’s an origin story of sorts and stands well enough on its read more

Recommendations

Both are remake of the original series and made by same creator, Leiji Matsumoto.
One ship sails across universe fight entire fleet of enemies army in order to find salvation and save motherearth. Main character is new recruits that given trust by the charismatic captain.
Both show many fascinating space battle which followed by good animation and background music. Capt. Harlock is fully made by top-rated CGI while Yamato 2199's CGI is nicely blended with 2D animation.
In a realm where humanity strives for salvation, their only hope is to undertake battles in space in order to advance their objectives. Suspense and plot twists frequent in the 3D CGI thriller, the newly recruited main character never ceases to surprise his peers with his abilities. Little does mankind know that this rookie may be the key to the liberation they need.
When I was watching Captain Harlock I found myself thinking that it was similar to the Unlimited. Some plot points and actions the characters take reflect each other in both series. The setting and overall story is different, but both are action-oriented and enjoyable to watch.

both movies are highly budgeted anime action CGI movies made by Toei animation studio, while Captain Harlock deals with the problem of overpopulation to sustain more life meanwhile Saint Seiya Legend of Sanctuary deals with greed and how to properly use great power for the benefit of more life

Though they may not share similar stories, both movies showed great animation/cgi. So if you're looking for eye candy or whatnot you may like Captain Harlock.
