Harlock is practically invincible and deals with every crisis the same way; by walking straight into it and bitch-slapping everyone into submission (both literally and metaphorically.) It's cool to see him do that, of course, but it does remove a lot of tension from the show itself. Even Tadashi, who comes across as just another punk who looks a bit too much like a young Harlock gets the opportunity to grow as a character.
And even Kei, who made one hell of a first impression in the very beginning with her buck-nekkidness, shows herself as far more than the Barbie doll (Matsumoto style) she carries the appearance of.
After all, Harlock is a wanted man, and the first episode thus begins with the arrest of Kei, one of Harlock's crew.
That's not to say we won't be introduced to subplots along the way, complete with spaceship armadas and such.
With Madhouse at the helm of anything related to animation production, you can bet that the art and animation looks just great.
This series actually gets a little darker than even the general Matsumoto fare, probably a result of the venture into horror.
The music is absolutely workable, though somewhat forgettable. Especially Harlock's VA, who gives him a rather deep, menacing voice.
And while Tochiro's dub is good, this IS the second time I hear him with a completely different voice.
