I have to admit, that fake episode "14" was very funny!

Anyway, I want just to say that I love this series! The story and especially the music (pure 80s italodisco, in an early "eurobeat" stage) are simply perfect and I really love the work you have done so far!
I hope to see more in the future from you! Nothing can be compared to the job you do guys!

OK, I watch the movie today.

The raw you used doesn't differs visually the raw that floats to the internet the last year. Is it the same or that is the quality of the original R2 DVD? (I have the R1 one with the English dub, and I believe the picture quality is somehow better this R2 version, but there are alterations on the beginning and the end of the movie)
The audio has some hiss, I'll try filter it out with Audacity to see how it's going to sound.

The translation is new and it's interesting to compare the differences with the other English version that exists. But, why you didn't translate the songs?

Overall a nice addition to the Lejiverse for us, the Matsumoto fans! Thanks!

Too bad...
But if the soundtrack is missing, then yeah, there are little you can do.

Kitaro's music on this one is so good. The audio of the movie does no justice to the soundtrack.

Great News!!!  ;D

A great part of the movie, is without any dialogues, so simply audio replacement should do the trick on those cases (for an AC3 2.0 channel audio).

Captain Harlock's Waga Seishun no Arukadia is a much more complicated thing though: now that is what I call a true challenge of audio remastering!

Yeah, I know, I also fansub it in Greek 6 months ago!

But the reason I would love to see this project done by Live-eviL, has the do with the hope that you gonna re-master the audio too! :-)

You see, the original remastered R2 DVD of Queen Millennia, has perfect picture but terrible audio! And we talking about Kitaro here!...
The OST of the movie exists, so a kind of audio re-engineering would do justice to this movie. And yeah, compared the series, is not that good, but the music is! (if you have a taste for "new age" music of course)

Captain Harlock's movie (Waga Seishun no Arukadia) also suffers the same fate. The remastering has perfect picture, terrible audio. Needs audio re-mastering desperate!

Yes!!! Finally! Great episodes, and excellent work (as always)!

Keep them coming!

BTW: Are there any plans for the movie too?


From what I read, this looks like the continuation of Fire Force DNA Sights 999.9!

I learned all the foreigner languages I could when I was younger. Now I'm too old and - basically here is my true problem - I don't have the time to learn a new one! I definitely would, if I was just 15 years younger. Now I have to learn new difficult things in my life, like being an adult or something :-P
(If I only had "DNA Sight" like Daiba... Or a mechanical body? Hmmmm)

Anyway, Tofusensei suggested openly what we can do (and actually this is what I already do). The bottom line of the message is that it is up to us to continue in our local regions the amazing work that Live-eviL begun with Galaxy Express!

I'll personally try it and I bet many other fans gonna try it too. And If there is an interest for the later GE999 episodes, a solution soon or later gonna pop up somewhere in the internet. It always do with the Leijiniverse for 36 years now!

Meanwhile we thank truthfully the Live-eviL members for what they done so far with this series and we waiting for the Matsumoto surprises they preparing for us!

Thank you all for your replies!

It is very good to know that Harlock SSX gonna continue production! I don't care how many years is gonna take to finish it, I'm young enough to have time to wait for some more decades (I already done once that with Yamato and Captain Harlock 78).

I didn't know that Submarine Super 99 is unlicenced on USA. I already have the french dub of the series, but the DVDs I got from don't include the original audio neither have french subs (I tried to play it smart and bought the cheap release ...).

The Yamato telemovie I'm talking about, is the version that personally Matsumoto edited for TV Broadcast.
The Voyager Ent. DVDs include indeed the extra animation (I own those DVDs too) but that telemovie also had extreme editing to roll better than the (awful IMO) original movie and also have some different dialogue. At least this is what some old yamato fans told me.

Fire Force DNA Sights 999.9 is a mediocre OVA. I have the Italian DVD (that included the original audio). Probably is the only Matsumoto based anime that I don't care about. Of course it has it's place to the leijiniverse (it presents new characters and concepts about Matsumoto's universe), but it is not something that I could watch frequently.

Anyway, since the big ones from Live-eviL told us not to worrie, we don't need something more to read!
I'm ready to be suprised!
Thank you again for your replies!

Basicly there are ways to bypass the stupid region limitations.
But this is not the point. It is obvious that soon or later, when (and if) the series ends, it so popular that someone gonna make a torrent with all the episodes and that's it. But IMO, this is not a solution eather.

Let's get some facts: The Raws of the Galaxy Express 999 episodes are out there. R2 DVDs are also exists for those who wish to buy them. So, what we basic need are the english subtitles.

The way I see it, what would all help us, is someone from Canada/USA to download the episodes from crunchyroll (after they pass the episode 33 of course) and then using well known methods, extract the subs, time them with the raws and share them with the world in a soft fansubbing form.

From there we can translate them in our local languages, because this is the true point IMO: Spread to the world this great timeless Anime masterpiece, which under  today's anime industry conditions, wouldn't even have a change to start production.

Artel I'm very interesting for the subs you have.

I was thinking, which Matsumoto-based animes remain unlincenced at the USA, so it could be possible a replacement of Galaxy Express 999 at Live-eviL.

Queen Millennia – The Movie, comes first in mind. AFAIK, there are ready English subs online, but all the versions I found, have awful audio, which is ironic since the specific movie has a soundtrack by the legendary New Age musician Kitaro. Based on what you managed to do with Captain Harlock’s soundtrack, I would love to see this movie released by Live-eviL.

The same I feel for the Captain Harlock movie Arcadia of my youth. But that one is licenced I think (pitty: That amazing masterpiece with remastered audio would be a great honor to Leiji Matsumoto and all his fans around the world!).

Second in mind, it comes the Yamato Universe. I know that it is licenced (both movies and series), but there is also that one unlicenced telemovie of the first series that exists and fits perfectly to the Leijiniverse (it doesn’t mess with the Kodai timeline, so you can follow the logic that he became the first Captain Harlock, as it happens in the well known manga...). Maybe that rare telemovie, would be of some interest for your team.
There is also that “Yamato MV Series: The Music Videos”, that released back in the 80s and we in the west world know its existance only through the internet. It combines the amazing drawings of Matsumoto with the amazing remastering music of the Yamato series / movies. There is occasional dialogue, so there is something to translate. This MV Series is pure anime art by the standards of  it’s time, but I don’t know if a funsub group would have an interest to do something with it.
The last trace of unlicenced Matsumoto in the Yamato Universe, is that “Dai Yamato Zero-Go” 5 OVA series. Many Yamato fans wish to watch it, even if it is well known that it is not Matsumoto at it’s best.

Then, we have all those Queen Millennia and Galaxy Express Telemovies / Specials. I only saw a couple of them and I don’t know if someone own them out there in a raw or other form. There are sure lots that Live-eviL could do with them!
Galaxy Express 999 has 4 telemovies, one Special (Glass of Clair) and something called “Niji no Michishirube”, released in 2001 ( I don’t have the slilghty idea what it is). On the other hand, Queen Millennia has one Pilot and 2 Television specials that many would die to see released!

Two less known Leiji Matsumoto somehow related series, are the Wakusei Robo Danguard and Starzinger, which doesn’t belong to the Leijiniverse. I don’t like them personally, but both have their following. Maybe a Live-eviL treatment, changes my opinion!

Finally, there are a couple of OVAs, like Fire Force DNA Sights (must be licenced), the unbroadcasted Cosmowarrior Zero - Marina Story , the two Torajima no Mi-me shorts (released as a bonus on the last Queen Emeraldas DVDs) and the episodes 3 and 4 of Queen Emeraldas that never released in the West world and over the years became some of a Matsumoto Fetich series to own.

Well, that’s all, as far as I know. Am I missing something?

On the bottom line, I would like to say that I know that many members of Live-eviL are fans of Leiji Matsumoto and I would be 100% pleased if you simply keep up with Harlock SSX and Queen Millennia. I’m already very happy with what you have done already with the Leijiniverse and I have to admit that you have done a lot so far! You don’t have to do anything more to remain forever a honored mention to all the fans of Leiji Matsumoto around the world! But you know, how greedy we – the fans – are. So, if we can force you to do even more things with the Leijiniverse, we gonnna use all means necessary!

Keep up the good work!

Thank you for your efforts all those years, to bring us one of Matsumoto masterpieces, the notorius series: "Galaxy Express 999". You did an excellent job and I loved every single episode you released. You gave me lot of personal Joy the last 4 years and that is priceless!

Live eviL was the last hope to let us watch this series. And now, we, the ones not located on U.S.A. or Canada, don't have any hope. Sorry that I'm not feeling happy like you, for this lovely thing that just happened. But, the 1/3 of the series is more than no episodes at all. So, I'm not negative at all. Only sad.

At least you manage to finish Captain Harlock just in time! And I bet, that many non North Americans, gonna keep sharing your amazing and excellent work, for a long long time. If a single Matsumoto fan out there, in any corner of this planet, wish to watch Captain Harlock, I'm sure there will always be a way to watch it through the alternative you provided to us, his worldwide fans!

Thank you and keep up your good work with the rest of your projects! I'll keep an eye on them!
