It is the thirty-first century. Ulysses killed the giant Cyclops when he rescued the children and his son, Telemachus.
But the ancient gods of Olympus are angry and threaten a terrible revenge: Ulysses is sentenced to travel through the universe of Olympus with a frozen crew on a quest to find the Kingdom of Hades. Only when he has found the Kingdom of Hades will his crew be free of their curse and he will be able to return to Earth and to his beloved Penelope.

Ulysse 31 illustrates perfectly the idea that combining different cultures expertise may lead to a wonderful result as this anime is a Japanese French production involving artists from both countries. It was made at a time Producers not only want to entertain children but also educate them (in this case about Greek Mythology) in the framework of an anime with a good artistic value. Other examples of such policies are Les mysterieuses cites d’or (The mysterious cities of Gold) and il etait une fois l’homme (once upon a time..man).

Ulysse 31, as you have understood,is a futuristic transposition of the Odyssey read more

The tale of Odysseus (Ulysses in Latin) and his many struggles and trials by the Gods as he quests to get back to his beloved Penelope, is the purest definition of a classic. Indeed being one of the earliest existent works of Western literature yet still read and well known tells a far greater tale of its epicness that any words I can offer ever will. So it should come as no surprise then that it has had many retellings, adaptations and allusions over the years, one only has to read James Joyce's famous novel aptly named Ulysses for a perfect example of a modern read more
