The plotline is actually very compelling. It follows the adventures of legendary gunman and former Sea Pirate Captain Harlock and his friend the errant samurai and expert swordsman, Tochiro as they travle accross a barren and desolate land known as Gun Frontier. On their journey they are joined by the beauticul and devious Sinunora.
The showhas some very bizare characters but they are actually quite enjoyable and you come to quite like them. The animation however is not to my taste and put's me off of the show. The plotline is also a little weak although the premise is excellent.
Again I like it but I am not sure why.
