Synopsis:

In the year 2977, humanity has long passed its peak; machines are able to perform any task a human can, and people have succumbed to apathy. However, there remains one who refuses to accept such an existence: Captan Harlock, a pirate who sails the sea of stars aboard his ship, the Arcadia. He is feared and loathed by most inhabitants of Earth, and yet he is their only hope against the Mazones, a strange alien race of beautiful women that threatens humanity. Thus begins a lonely battle in which Harlock and the crew of Arcadia struggle to stay true to their ideals, while slowly unravelling the sad tale of the Mazones.

If you're looking for a bittersweet sci fi story about love, friendship and loss, then search no more. Both Harlock and Bebop are melancholic, introspective works who are still thoroughly enjoyable despite their age.

Similar ties of friendship and loss are seen in Captain Harlock and Cowboy Bebop with characters personalities running the show.

Ergo Proxy

Ergo Proxy

In a futuristic world almost barren of life, mankind is confined to mechanized domed cities where A.I.’s control all aspects of life. In this world, humans are no longer born, they are manufactured in a production line; and alongside them live androids known as autoreivs. Within one of these domed sanctuaries named Romdeau lives Re-l Mayer, one of a few citizens who aren’t entirely prevented from thinking. Her grandfather's prominent position and the affection of the scientist Daedalus have left her more free will than is normally allowed, but Re-l has started to question the sanctity of the city and the citizens' perfect way of life. With mysterious beings known as proxies causing havoc and a man named Vincent causing great influence on her life, Re-l must travel outside of the city to find the answers she seeks and discover the mystery behind "the awakening".

Captain Harlock and Ergo Proxy revolve around technology taking over and the main characters refusing to accept that life.

Captain Harlock and Galaxy Express 999 have very similar characters and themes which make each of them recommendable to each other. In many a cases the characters even cross over into each other causing unknown knowledge of both series to be present in each others. Other for knowledge, the stories have very similar themes like science fiction and to be true to one's self. These are reflected in both of the series well which might also come to the fact of they are created by the same person, Leiji Matsumoto.

Harlock and Interstellar tell sci fi stories about aliens and the outer space that are simple yet effective. Their worlds slowly draw you in, while the beautifully drawn characters unfold before you. Connected in themes and in style, these shows go perfectly with each other.
