Synopsis

Despite the destruction of the mechanization home world Andromeda, the machine empire is still swept across the galaxy and Earth has become a battleground. Having returned from his journey aboard the train Galaxy Express 999, Tetsurou Hoshino joins the resistance and fights alongside others who have retained their humanity.

When the 999 returns to Earth, Tetsurou receives an enigmatic recorded message from his former traveling companion Maetel, telling him to board the train once more. Fighting his way to Megalopolis station, he makes it onto the train just as it departs. This time, however, Tetsurou is met with several mysteries: Maetel is nowhere to be seen, an ominous "Ghost Train" has appeared, and the ultimate destination of the 999 is unknown. Amid all this, Tetsurou finds himself confronted by the mysterious black knight Faust and soon discovers the machine empire's darkest secret.

Released a couple of years after the original Galaxy Express 999 movie, this sequel is an original story, not based on the original manga or television series (although there is one sequence heavily based on them). 3 years after the events of the first movie, Tetsuro is taking part in the resistance against the machine empire and once again boards the Galaxy Express, in search of Maetel.

This movie is a bit darker than the original in both tone and story. Whereas the first movie had a lot of world building and exploration to it in addition to Tetsuro's main story of revenge, the plot is read more

Coming out in 1981, the sequel, Adieu Galaxy Express 999 is a fantastic classic. Directed by Rintaro, whom also directed the first Galaxy Express movie, made another with top notch space action. This is a direct sequel of our main protagonist Tetsuro Hoshino, now, back on Earth fighting the machines for survival.

Tetsuro is now older, and just as loud and reckless as before. He continues to fight, and throughout the beginning of the movie really sets the mood in how Earth and the universe are all trying to survive against human immortality by mechanization. Then, a message from the blond bombshell herself, Maetel, reaches Tetsuro. read more
