Captain Harlock
It was a prosperous era for mankind. Robots were sent into space to exploit the resources of other planets and shipped back. Everything was provided by the state so there was no need for people to work. Nonetheless the government feared an eventual revolt, so they inserted subliminal signals in the audio-visual feeds so that the people were content to watch and do nothing else. Captain Harlock feared for the future of humanity under such conditions and rebelled against the government becoming a pirate.
The year is 2977. Mankind has become complacent and stagnant. All work is done by machines, while humans spend all their time on entertainment. But when a mysterious invader from the stars catches Earth unawares, only the legendary space pirate Captain Harlock and the crew of the Arcadia have the will to stand against them.
In the year 2977, humanity has long passed its peak; machines are able to perform any task a human can, and people have succumbed to apathy. However, there remains one who refuses to accept such an existence: Captan Harlock, a pirate who sails the sea of stars aboard his ship, the Arcadia. He is feared and loathed by most inhabitants of Earth, and yet he is their only hope against the Mazones, a strange alien race of beautiful women that threatens humanity. Thus begins a lonely battle in which Harlock and the crew of Arcadia struggle to stay true to their ideals, while slowly unravelling the sad tale of the Mazones.
