Akita Shoten propelled another manga dependent on Leiji Matsumoto‘s Captain Harlock manga titled Captain Harlock – Arcadia no Kioku (Captain Harlock – Memoires de L’Arcadia or Captain Harlock – Memories of the Arcadia) on its Manga Cross site on Tuesday.
French artist Jérôme Alquié is credited for the art, while Matsumoto is credited for the first work, setting, and plans. The manga is a coordinated effort between Akita Shoten and French distributer Kana.
The manga‘s story starts when Queen Rafflesia, the pioneer of a Mazon armada, races over the profundities of room to usurp Earth. Then, crude Mazons, who have been living on Earth since before mankind’s time, start to stir and unleash devastation on Earth. It is up to the space privateer Harlock, his team, and his ship the Arcadia, to take the battle to the Mazons.
Captain Harlock is a fictional character made by manga artist Leiji Matsumoto and the hero of the Space Pirate Captain Harlock manga arrangement.
Harlock is the prototype Romantic hero, a space privateer with an independent way of thinking of life. He is as respectable as he is distant, insubordinate, apathetically battling against extremist routines, regardless of whether they be Earth-conceived or outsider. In his very own words, he “fight[s] for the wellbeing of nobody… just for something somewhere down in [his] heart.” He doesn’t fear passing, and is once in a while observed wearing garments with the number 42 on it. In Japanese culture, the number 42 is related with death (the numbers, articulated independently as “four two,” seem like “shini”— signifying “biting the dust/demise”).
The character was made by Leiji Matsumoto in 1977 and promoted in the 1978 TV arrangement Space Pirate Captain Harlock. From that point forward, the character has showed up in various enlivened TV arrangement and movies, the most recent of which is 2013’s Space Pirate Captain Harlock.
