The gold of Rhein has been stolen by Alberich, a member of an ancient race that ruled the universe. He has tricked Tadashi Daiba into making the Ring of the Niebelung, a device that will allow him to restore their power, which will eventually lead to chaos and destruction. But the ancient Gods have awoken and demand their legacy restored to them. It's up to Harlock, Esmeralda, Tochiro, Tadeshi and the rest of the crew of Arcadia to prevent the war that will devour the universe.
Gun Frontier: a sacred land for true men; a place where the weak aren't allowed to dream! Tochiro the samurai, the former sea pirate Harlock, and the mysterious Shinunora are searching the western front of the USA. They must face bandits, corrupt sheriffs and many other dangers; but even if it means tearing Gun Frontier from end to end, Tochiro will stop at nothing to find a lost clan of Japanese immigrants. It is they who can help him locate and rescue his sister, a master weapon smith who was kidnapped for her abilities.
The characters from Gun Frontier are like perfectly mached with the characters from Harlock Saga.
I some times have to question which anime I was watching, because of the simular design and the way they act.
If you like the characters from either of the series, then I'd recommend Gun Frontier and Harlock Saga.
In Gun Frontier the main characters are searching for a lost clan of Japanese immigrants that were kidnapped. As in Harlock Saga, the main characters all fight for the goal of getting a "special" ring. Both Series are after a goal and work to that goal.
