FirstShowing: ''Who is Captain Harlock? Unless you're from Japan or otherwise familiar with Leiji Matsumoto's manga, this is likely a character many have never heard of (at least I haven't). But if you're a fan of Appleseed or Final Fantasy, you'll want to take a look. Captain Harlock: Space Pirate is a CG animated space epic that seems to involve some gnarly space pirate ships, apparitions with pointy ears and lots of long-haired characters. The animation in this looks incredible, all the fine details in the hair and environments around them. I'm interested in seeing this admittedly more for the visuals than anything else.''
