Harlock Space Pirate (2015)
Tuesday 24th March 2015
Sci-fi legend Captain Harlock is back! A stunning reboot of the classic franchise, Harlock Space Pirate, released on DVD and Blu-ray on 27th April 2015 courtesy of Manga Entertainment, boasts state-of-the-art CG animation, edge-of-your-seat interstellar action and epic drama on a galactic scale.
As humanity's space empire collapses, 500 billion colonists pour back to re-settle their mother planet. With Earth unable to support such vast numbers, the devastating Homecoming War is fought over who has the right to return. The conflict leads to the rise of the authoritarian Gaia Coalition, who declare the Earth a sacred place that must not be repopulated ...only to break their own rule by allowing the galactic elite to take over the planet.
This hypocrisy enrages Captain Harlock, however, and the immortal space pirate goes to tragic lengths to thwart the Gaia Coalition's plans. Now the renegade captain and his crew, including ethereal alien Miime, loyal lieutenant Kei and the boisterous Yullian, are on a mission to set things right - by resetting the so-called 'Genesis Clock'. But Gaia Coalition admiral Ezra has sent his brother Logan to infiltrate Harlock's ghost ship Arcadia and put an end to the Captain once and for all...
