Captain Harlock's CG-animated movie face has surfaced at Tokyo's Anime Fair. We're pretty impressed with the space pirate's look, including the swoon-inducing scar. But according to people who saw the footage, he's not the only sexy thing in the movie.
Harlock the lone space pirate, romantic hero, and massive source of inspiration to the many cosplayers out there, is getting his own feature length film. Plus a bit of an updated CG look - here's how he appears in Leiji Matsumoto's original anime.
According to Wired, he's not the only good looking character that premiered in the footage for Space Pirate Captain Harlock. The 90-second trailer also included Kei Yuki, who was described as, "very sexy for CG." Let the inappropriate computer-animated thoughts commence.
Here's the original synopsis for Captain Harlock:
Matsumoto presents a future in which the Earth has achieved a vast starfaring civilization, but is slowly and steadily succumbing to ennui or despair, often due to defeat and subjugation by a foreign invader. Rising against the general apathy, Harlock denies defeat and leads an outlaw crew aboard his starship Arcadia to undertake daring raids against Earth's oppressors. Even though they have defeated Earth and devastated its peoples, the invaders are often presented in a sympathetic light, being shown as having some justification for their action.
