"Spinning off from Star Blazers, Galaxy Express 999, and Captain Harlock, this 13-episode series is set in what's called the "Lejiverse". Leji Matsumoto, who created Queen Emeraldas and Maetel Legend, did this showing what went on with the Earth forces after their war with the Machine Men, as shown in the Galaxy Express 999 movies. Earth has signed a peacy treaty with the Machine Men and is working together with them. But renegade pirate Captain Harlock(also known as Herlock)relentlessly keeps attacking the Machine Men cargo ships. So Earth sends a reformed battleship made of both humans and machines to stop him once and for all. Lead by Captain Zero, this crew tries to get along despite their differences. Zero gathers more allies along the way, and runs into various resident characters like the piano-teethed samurai/engineer Tochiro. Cosmo Warrior Zero is a decent sci-fi series, but mainly for old school anime fans."
