A society where humanity has entered into sloth, concerned only that its entertainment remain uninterrupted. An enemy capable of masquerading as beautiful women, yet burn like paper, hell-bent on invading Earth. A hero branded an outlaw, boasting a true man's determination and unwilling to let his beloved planet fall.
When the alien Mazone murder his father, Tadashi Daiba finds himself confronted by a hostile and disbelieving government unwilling to believe his claims, let alone prepare to fight off an alien invasion. His only hope of revenge against this mysterious foe is by joining up with the most infamous of all possible allies: the stoic space pirate Captain Harlock and his eccentric crew of misfits aboard the good ship Arcadia.
With the Earth's military holding Harlock's final ties to Earth hostage on one side and the Mazone on the other, can the Arcadia's crew overcome such overwhelming odds and prevent the invasion?

Ratings & Reviews
Classic 1978 Toei series finally available in English
The creations of Leiji Matsumoto are their shared universe has given us countless memorable characters and stories, the most famous of which is arguably Captain Harlock a Space Pirate whom fights for justice and freedom amongst the stars.
The Original 1978 series is the first animated entry to the Harlock franchise and is arguably the best version as this 42 episode series follows Harlock and his motley crew on the Arcadia as they fight to defend hapless earth from the invasion of the formidable alien race called the Mazone.
This DVD set carries over the Japanese transfer and as a result looks and sounds great.

Anime classic available for the first time uncut on dvd. Before only streamed or as part of badly cut together show with another anime. 40 year old anime that doesn't show its age. Great character, animation, and music.

If you can get around the older style animation (which jolted me initially) this is an excellent story with a fine mixture of character backgrounds (everyone on the Arcadia has some tragedy in his/her past) and on-going story arc.
