  • A Classic That Should Set An Example for Modern Anime
    To believe it or not I first heard of this show through a review of it on youtube. I watched the first episode on here and just loved it.

    To sum it up so far. Galaxy Express 999 begins on Earth where the beginning of journey filled with life lessons, and stories of various people and creatures! It starts off with Tetsuro Hoshino and his mother heading for the Galaxy Express 999 so Tetsuro may ...

    Adore this classic anime title
    I was mildly curious and had this in my queue for some time -- when I finally gave Galaxy Express a shot it became one of my new favorites even bypassing my interest in any of the newer series that are out. It has a child protagonist but is very adult and philosophical in themes. The closest series it reminded me of was Kino's Journey. Though there's a beginning and a main goal (plus a bit of ...

    A masterpiece and a classic.
    What's to say that hasn't already been said? This show is brilliant because it works on so many levels. It provides comedy, drama, romance, action, and mystery all in one package that appeals to both children and adults!

    Yet perhaps more important than the features on display are the underlying themes. This show thoughtfully considers profound questions about life, the choices made therein as ...

    The best animation of all time?
    It's classic sense of raw and quirky humor with ridiculous plot devices. An inventive plot line with imaginative takes on a possible method of interstellar travel. Anyone that knows what animation is supposed to do, knows that Galaxy Express 999 is one of the ULTIMATE animations that have ever been made of all time. This inspired me and continues to be my favorite. You won't believe how ...

    Galaxy Express 999 Season 1 Review
    This anime is very mysterious and sticks to the story line. But unlike other animes, the story takes place in many different locations. That is what I like about it. Ever since I started to watch it, it's been difficult to switch to another and more recent anime. Being from the 1980s and all with it's retro-anime style, I have to say it's one of the most classic sci-fi animes I have seen so far :3

Tetsuro Hoshino lives as an orphan in the boondocks of earth, years after his mother was shot for sport by ‘Count ...

    The Almost Cult Classic
    Galaxy Express 999 starts off with a woman and her child making a seemingly impossible journey, through lifeless frozen tundra, to their "haven" Megalopolis. There they hope to work in order to buy a pass on the famed Galaxy Express 999. Their end goal is to rise in the social ranks as humans to a long-living cyborgs. You find their hope is daunted by the sight of millions, with the same dream, ...

    Everything you need!
    I wish I could write a whole essay on what this show means to me, but I'll try to make it short. This show is the Crem' dela Crem, lol. Animation now a days is too overdone, this animation will impress you because its more simple. The storyline could not be any better. There is so much adventure, humor, and mysteries that pull you in from the first 10 minutes of the show. I watch this show late ...
