Captain Harlock - Albator - ハーロック

Sunday night, back from a local Matsuri, we stumble upon a shop still open : an oasis for otaku in a residential area.

Captain Harlock - Albator - ハーロック

Usual items can be found : figures, manga, anime DVDs, J Pop CDs and MOPLA (MOdel PLAstic, I don"t know if this "word" is used only in Japan).

I am not a specialist of all this stuff, but still when I was a kid and teenager I spent hours watching on TV all the series coming from Japan.

My all time favorite character is Captain Harlock (キャプテンハーロック, called Albator in France for odd reason but it sounds better to me actually)

I won"t write an article about Harlock here, there are dozens of sites about the saga.

As you can see I couldn"t resist to buy these 2 figures!

Well it was only 400 yens the unit so almost a give away... (I guess because it"s not a big hit anymore)

I must say I enjoyed taking this photos :)

I could practice with the manual mode but a different lens would have been more appropriate, for now I have only the basic kit of the Nikon D5000, a 18-55mm.

The original Japanese opening of the anime:

And the French one! (by Eric Charden, a pop singer)

PS : No I won"t convert myself to otakuism. It will remain an exception! (well, I might complete this collection with the other main charcters and then build the mopla spaceship then ... na, I am kidding ^_^)

PS2 : The figures came actually from the series "Queen Emeraldas" :

I really like the voice of the singer, it sounds like Enka style, doesn"t it?
