OK, so how is this going to relate to all of the other Harlock anime and the Leijiverse in general, then?

I might watch it if I enjoy some of Matsumoto Leiji's other anime productions, whether they are linked to Harlock or not.

Oh my...too bad it's CGI, but still, I just love the "Leijiverse" (c).

My first reaction was something like: CG? :| After remembering how poorly animated the Harlock stuff I've seen was though my new reaction is: CG? Good. Very, very good.

The plot sounds cool, however I am a bit against seeing Harlock in CG

Interesting, I've never seen the original one, although I've been planning that forever, so I guess this'll be good to get me in the Harlock vibe.

It's so much. It's too much.

And I really disliked the main series. But I was very off because even considering it's dated the art was pretty horrible. After seeing the website's previews I kind of want to watch this, it seems top-notch animation.

Excellent, lets go back to the roots!!

Hope they announce the release date Sanit Seiya CG + Rose of Versailles remakes in the near future.

Toei is doing great trying to show the contemporary fans the classics.

well they have a lot of shows to reboot and Precure/One Piece to give them money to do so... so it's good they use it in this way.

So MAL finally starts locking news threads that are only a few weeks old?

I wonder where was the announcement of this change? Or we are seeing yet another case of changes made that impacted users but not communicated to them?

I wonder how long people would put up with this.

As much as I have a bunch of information to share about anime announced recently I cannot share it in news board, and the anime series is too disorganized and chaotic to share information except with people already interested in the particular series.
