Captain Harlock/Herlock (Herlock from this point onwards) was a name I had heard only a couple of times before coming across 'The Endless Odyssey'. A popular series from the late 70's that has had numerous sequels and spin-offs, and it proved too hard to resist getting my first taste of what this old school space piracy classic had to offer... albeit in the form of a 2002 OVA series.

Unfortuantely for newcomers such as myself, it starts without explaining anything in detail. It is revealed that Herlock and his pirate crew parted ways sometime prior to the story beginning; Herlock taking his ship (Arcadia) and read more

First of all. This is not an entry point into the series. If you want to get started on Captain Harlock then look elsewhere. Oh yeah. There was one other thing. Endless Odyssey is also shockingly bad. Most of the pieces are there. But they've all been assembled incorrectly.

Here's how I think the pitch meeting went down. In 2002 Madhouse presumably thought that anime fans wouldn't be interested in going back to watch a series that was over 20 years old at the time, if such a thing was even available to find at the time that is. I'd say that was a correct assumption. read more

At some point, a show along the lines of Harlock has to come around. It doesn't shake anything up. It doesn't really do much new. Hell, it's the 90's sequel/reboot/alternate universe canon to a show that came out before Gundam. Even so, the elements of what make it great come from something more than something like originality. It even basically proves that just because the ideas presented have been in works that have come out before it, the compilation of such ideas, as well as amazing characters, atmosphere, and theming can allow even a remake like this to shine.

The characters of Harlock are beautifully designed read more
