In the future, humanity has achieved a vast starfaring civilization, but is slowly and steadily succumbing to ennui or despair, often due to defeat and subjugation by a foreign invader. Rising against the general apathy, Herlock denies defeat and leads an outlaw crew aboard his starship Arcadia to undertake daring raids against Earth's oppressors. Their primary oppressors are the Mazone, a race of organic plant-based alien women who explored Earth in the mythic past and are now back to reclaim it.

One of Leiji Matsumoto’s quintessential works, Captain Harlock depicts a crew of renegades in search of freedom in the sea of stars.

This is a relatively short story when compared to long running Shonen works, the Seven Seas English adaptation is published in 3 large volumes, despite this, the characters are very well fleshed out with even the most minor characters showing their ideals and personality in their breve appearances. With the more permanent characters, you get small glimpses of their personality, backstory and what led them to the Arcadia as the story progresses. In the Arcadia every crew member is, quite literally, free to do read more
