About Captain Harlock Arcadia of My Youth Endless Orbit SSX DVD

Captain Harlock Arcadia of My Youth Endless Orbit SSX contains episodes 1-22 of the complete television series.

Far into the future, a terrible alien menace named Illumidas has conquered Earth. War hero Captain Harlock and his faithful crew are forced to flee into space on their cutting-edge battleship. As they travel the galaxy fighting injustice, Harlock dreams of some day finding Arcadia, a legendary planet where all humans can be free.

Along his journey, Harlock is joined by more valiant young people who share his dream of a better future for all humankind. But the Illumidas — assisted by a brilliant human engineer, who will betray even his own kind in the name of revenge — will stop at nothing to halt his voyage. Harlock and his allies are declared pirates, under the code name SSX!

This 1982 series from the mind of Leiji Matsumoto acts as a loose prequel to the classic Galaxy Express 999 and Space Pirate Captain Harlock. Reuniting Harlock with old friends while introducing a new and colorful cast, Endless Orbit SSX offers more of the quiet introspection, manly daring-do, and stunningly animated ship-to-ship combat sequences that the Harlock series is known for. Arcadia, take off!

At the Height of a Legend

by

If you want to get into Harlock, but aren't fully onboard with seeing all of them and want a solid no nonsense portrayal of a character more famous for for being famous than actually being watched in the west... make this the one you see. It's a direct sequel to the movie Arcadia of my Youth, one of the rare instances where separate Matsumoto anime titles were meant to be a whole production. And it's as good as the best of Captain Harlock's disparate titles have ever been. I rate it the best starter, and the most reliably great experience of the bunch if not the most interesting. You will have so much more engagement with the other versions if you see this foundational second tv outing with the Captain

Even if you only see this one, you can walk away feeling like you've experienced the complete experience, and that in a nutshell is what puts it over the top among a wide selection Captain Harlock works.

A good adventure

A tv series sequel to the movie Arcadia of My Youth I can honestly say I enjoyed this series from beginning to end it’s been awhile since I’ve felt a sense adventure and suspense that had me sitting on the edge of seat waiting to see what happens next. The picture quality for the DVD looks so good that it could be a blu-ray and if you’re interested in Harlock this or the movie is a good place to start.
