Strange but Good
The plot for this series is quite unusual and it takes a bit to warm to it. Captain Harlock is a space pirate with your usual mottley crew. The plot preaches the idea that people who follow orders live in fear and the crew of Captain Harlock follow his orders out of choice and do not live in fear. So when an extra terrestrial comes to invade the universe and erradicate earth (backed by a semi-biblical plot going back to the big-bang) and preys upon the fears of humanity, Harlock steps in fearlessly.

The animation is top quality but the characters seem eratic and poorly explained. I'm guessing that the manga offers a plot backing to this, but i haven't read that. The plot is engaging and the large faced animation style (for non-central characters) is unusual and amusing. all in all a good watch.
