    Space Pirate Captain Harlock - Review
    Captain Harlock is one of those series that can never grow old. Sure the animation isn't all sparkle sparkle like today's but the storyline and characters out shine that aspect and delivers an excellent series.

    The story follows Captain Harlock, a Space Pirate who lives in the year 2977. The world has become so lazy that no one is bothered to explore and instead they entertain themselves. After ...

    Blast from the past.
    Ok, I am going to be honest here.

    But this is Classic Anime at its best (first in North America???), ...

The art style and quality ...

Note that the visuals are out of date obviously and the sounds too however when you get past that you see how superb it is. If you enjoy anything with pirates you should watch this! Though Harlock is not a typical loot and plunder pirate he is actually ...

    It is the Year is 2977...
    I came the way of this show after watching the first episode of Galaxy Express 999 and enjoying it. When I saw this show, in the same style and decade I could not resist. Honestly, I wanted to see if the opening sequence was as amazing as GE999, and I was not disappointed. Anyway, I was admittedly a little apprehensive about how good a show about a space pirate could be, especially one form the ...
