Product Description


The broadcast series Hakugei: Legend of the Moby Dick is set in the distant future, 500 years after the great age of human space exploration. Derelict ships called "whales" drift through the galaxy: rich prizes for the salvage crews known as "whale hunters." Fourteen-year-old Lucky Luck fulfills his dream when he's accepted as an apprentice by Captain Ahab, the greatest hunter of them all. Lucky is still learning his way around The Lady Whisker, when the crew encounters Dew, an android reprogrammed long ago by a mysterious and powerful white being. Hakugei is a somewhat manic attempt to move the clichés of Western seafaring into outer space: The crew consists of colorful misfits, Ahab talks like Captain McCallister on The Simpsons ("Yarrgh!"), and his orders are broadcast by a screeching mechanical parrot. Hakugei has about as much to do with Herman Melville's novel as Harlock Saga does with Wagner's Ring operas. (Rated TV PG, suitable for ages 12 and older: brief nudity, grotesque imagery, violence, alcohol and tobacco use) --Charles Solomon

5.0 out of 5 stars Moby Dick Nov. 25 2007
By David Taylor - Published on Amazon.com
Moby Dick has a very artistic feel to it. The story is top notch and the development of the characters is truly great. We see how the future will be like for whale hunters in the future. The whole idea of hunting old space ships that have been abandoned and calling them whales is truly amusing. For those who love a great anime series and a new take on an old great tale, I suggest giving this version of Moby Dick a chance, you won't be disappointed.

The year is 4699 (boy that's way in the future). A young adventurer on a desperate mission sets off to find Captain Ahab and his crew of outlaw whale hunters. Only Ahab can save his home planet from the most horrific beast known throughout the universe: Moby Dick.

Now people don't ignor this anime series, be interested!
