After global warming causes sea levels to rise, a mysterious group of warships appear all over the world and defeat humanity. 17 years after the devastating naval war, a group of people combat the warships with a mysterious submarine.
Another Matsumoto gem, but not meant for the general public. It is slow-paced, melancholic, poetic, surreal, and contains a lot of violence, sex and "nudity". The animation is pretty basic, but the dialog is very-well written and there is room for character development.
The way it ended suggested there might be another season, so we're still waiting.
I think you'll only enjoy it if you're used to Spaghetti Westerns, or absolutely adore two of Matsumoto's main characters, Harlock/Albator the pirate and Toshiro the Samurai. Well, what seems to be their ancestors or their previous incarnation in the 19th century West, that is.
I've seen this in French, which apparently is the better dubbed version compared to English, with a more faithful translation.
