Storyline

After a drawn-out, viciously-fought war, the earth has been conquered by the alien Illumidus Empire. Harlock, a captain in earth's fleet, crashes his ship to prevent the Illumidus from using it, and flat-out refuses to join them. With the help of his allies, Tochiro and the space pirate Emereldas, and his lover Miya, he wages a private and bitter war against the Illumidus.

Good intelligent anime
19 February 2004 | by (NYC) – See all my reviews

As a big fan of the original Harlock television series I got this film with big expectations. It's good, dark anime that has a few confusing moments. My real problem is the departure from the storyline established in the series. It makes the film a little incoherent if you remember the show.
