This series is my favorite of all Japanese anime. It is an epic tale of freedom. Young Daiba Tadashi loses his scientist father to a mysterious assassin and winds up joining Captain Harlock and crew in there fight to protect Earth from the Mazone, a species of women bent on destroying humanity. Earth society has become corrupt and apathetic and does not see the threat it faces... so why would Captain Harlock care about Earth who has declared him an outlaw? He has promised to protect the young daughter of his best friend who died before the series begins so she can have a world to grow up in.
Like many Japanese anime TV shows this one is full of human drama, characters who face inner conflicts, adventure that spans the galaxy, and stories that entertain with each episode.
I first watched this series in the late 70s when I live in Hawaii on the local independent TV station that was mostly Japanese programming, KIKU-TV. I think another TV station, maybe the one in San Francisco did the original subtitling.
