In Matsumoto's original 1977-79 Space Pirate Captain Harlock manga, the title character rebels against Earth's inept government and fights for humanity with his crew of 40 aboard the invincible space battleship Arcadia. The manga inspired a 1978-1979 television anime, and Crunchyroll and Funimation streamed the series. The anime inspired anime feature films, original video anime, and the sequel Arcadia of My Youth: Endless Orbit SSX. AnimEigo released the Arcadia of My Youth film in North America in 2003. The manga also inspired a CG film in 2013. Video streaming service Netflix released the film in English in 2014, Ketchup Entertainment released the film on DVD, and Twilight Time released the film on Blu-ray Disc.
