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.

The Captain Harlock franchise also happens to be one of ...

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 ...

I read this after Space Battleship Yamato and the two feel very similar. I love the art which is equally as good in this series. Throughout there is fun humor and an interesting but rather surface level story. The characters are enjoyable, though I think I liked the characters in Space Battleship Yamato a bit more. Some of the themes of this book are repeated a bit too much (which would work better in weekly distributions but in one book it can get a bit much), but it is easy enough to skip through the same dialogue now and again.

This book has the same underlying ...
