Harlock, Harlock, Harlock
Swamped with work, hardly have time do anything else (though I’m getting paid for the work, so at least it’s not all bad). OK, here are three exciting news:
1) There’s a new Anglophone Harlock Forum!!!
The site is [here]. The site is called Et in Arcadia Ego, a fact which proves once again that Helens usually get their way (it’s been like that since antiquity). A great thank you to Captain Ultimate-Journey, who finally took charge and made this absolutely necessary site happen. I believe there are 7 members at this point, so there’s definitely room for more!
2. The film crew is sailing!!!
…the waters of Tokyo Bay, which is not really that impressive, truth be told, but at least they’re doing it aboard Leiji’s very own Hotaruna. Please check out the video via Amara [here] and be sure to “Select Language” to put the English subs in.
By the way, if after watching that video you feel an imperious need to watch Ayano doing a chicken, YouTube is more than happy to oblige. Watch around minute 2:10 [here].
3. Ecce Oyama
Courtesy of the film’s Facebook fan page [here]. I’m totally digging this, but I’d like to know what you think. I wonder to what extent Leiji was involved in this conception…
EDIT: Thanks to Satch for the Oyama pic!!!
