Queen Emeraldas (クィーン・エメラルダス)
A four-episode Japanese anime that continues the Harlock franchise created by Leiji Matsumoto.
The anime was adapted from Matsumoto''s 1978 manga of the same name.
Queen Emeraldas is the story of the pirate spaceship, Queen Emeraldas, which is captained by the mysterious and beautiful Emeraldas, a strong and powerful privateer.
In practice, the character is also referred to as Queen Emeraldas or Pirate Queen Emeraldas, thus the title refers to both ship and captain.
Emeraldas appeared in the 1978 Space Pirate Captain Harlock television series during flashbacks.
She also had a memorable guest appearance in the 1978 Galaxy Express 999 series.
This episode, Eternal Traveller Emeraldas, was later turned into an hour long television special expanding on that story.
She subsequently appeared as a supporting character in the film Arcadia of My Youth where it is shown how she obtained her facial scar.
She also makes brief appearances in Harlock Saga and Cosmo Warrior Zero.
Her origin and youth is depicted in Maetel Legend.
As with Harlock and most other characters of the Leijiverse, Emeraldas' appearances in various stories cannot be applied to one consistent timeline.
In the 1978 Galaxy Express 999 story, for example, one notable difference from her other depictions is that Emeraldas is suffering from an unknown illness.
Taito has released a highly accurate PVC figurine of Emeraldas as a claw machine prize in Japan.
It measures a full 12 inches high and includes a display base as shown.
Very detailed, this figurine comes in a window box as shown and is very hard to find.
