Tochirô Ôyama Quotes:

  • Captain Harlock: Why did you act like a beggar?

    Tochirô Ôyama: It's what you'd call a one-man revolt.

    Captain Harlock: Revolt?

    Tochirô Ôyama: That's right!

    Captain Harlock: How can that be a revolt, when you don't have weapons, or anything?

    Tochirô Ôyama: If there were weapons to be had, would you do it too?

    Captain Harlock: Weapons? There aren't any, anywhere!

    Tochirô Ôyama: [chuckles] In any world, there are loopholes, you know.

    [produces a gun]

  • [At dinner, Harlock sets his eyes on a young youth for the first time]

    Captain Harlock: It's hard on you too, huh? I know how you feel inside. But right now, all we can do is shut up and eat. We've been beaten after all, but that does not mean we've been destroyed.

    [the youth finishes his meal, and walks away. As he passes by Harlock, he deposits a bottle of sake]

    Tochirô Ôyama: Don't die.

    [walks away from a surprised Harlock]

    Captain Harlock: And here I was feeling sorry for you...

  • Tochirô Ôyama: [examining Emeraldas's ship] Those are unusual burns...

    Queen Emeraldas: I failed to cross the Prominence of the Streams of Fire, also known as the Stanley Witch of Space. It's a terrifying place, where in addition to tremendous thermal energy, there is also supergravity which attracts living energy to itself.

  • Tochirô Ôyama: The spirit of Maya, who kept pleading to everyone to believe in tomorrow, is gone. The government now wants to exile us from Earth, forever! What will you do now, you who have begun walking the same path as Tokarga? Remember at least a little of what Maya said!

  • Tochirô Ôyama: He's gonna ram right into us!

    Captain Harlock: Zeda's a man of courage. Such men existed on Earth in olden times.

    Tochirô Ôyama: It's a head-on collision! No choice - I'm firing!

    Captain Harlock: Tochiro, I command you to hold your fire!

  • [looking around the Arcadia]

    Captain Harlock: You built this?

    Tochirô Ôyama: Yes, with my inherited knowledge of technology. This ship is my alter-ego. Harlock, this is the ship that will achieve your dreams and mine.

  • Queen Emeraldas: Harlock! Zeda deliberately led us to a place where we can easily escape! If we reverse course and accelerate immediately, the Illumidus fleet can't catch us!

    Captain Harlock: This is the beginning... I don't want it said throughout history that I fled at the beginning. What do you think, Tochiro?

    Tochirô Ôyama: I don't want to put to sea while showing my back to the enemy!

    Queen Emeraldas: [smiles] From now on, those who run into you will be unfortunate!

    Captain Harlock: Pirates have pirates' ways! Those are our ways! All hands to stations! Full speed, port and starboard! Prepare to board! We'll reverse course, and board the bastards' flagship!

  • Captain Harlock: The truth of creation that governs the universe... my friend Zoll, and his sister Mira, the last pure Tokargan female; are hereby trusted to your bosom. Farewell, truth; give Zoll and Mira eternal rest.

    Tochirô Ôyama: Farewell, friends.

    [the coffins carrying Zoll and Mira are deployed into space]

  • Captain Harlock: We will meet again, at the far place where the ring of time is linked. Goodbye Maya. Until I reach the end of my life in the Sea of Stars, I will never forget you.

    Tochirô Ôyama: Are you ready, Harlock?

    [Harlock is silent, so Emeraldas gives the signal, and Tochiro deploys Maya's coffin]

    Captain Harlock: Sea of Stars, we now leave our precious loved ones in your hands, in the belief that righteousness rules over this sea...

  • [Tochiro and Harlock are both strapped to a machine]

    Zoll: The device we have placed in you is for simultaneous two-person analysis of the memory regions of the genes in your cells. It can completely analyze 3000 years of memory in one minute.

    Captain Harlock: So what?

    Tochirô Ôyama: Is this some kind of torture?

    Zoll: Listen to me. You two have some genes in common...

    [points to a monitor]

    Zoll: Notice how those lines intermingle from time to time? Those portions that throw off sparks are the ones.

    Captain Harlock: What is this leading up to?

    Zoll: Your memories, in fact your genes, all the way from your distant ancestors, both have parts that are absolutely identical.

    Captain Harlock: You, and...?

    Tochirô Ôyama: Me?

    Zoll: I've been acquiring data from ages concerning your genes. Strange data, at that. You both share identical memories, based on a common experience. I'm going to play those memories back.

  • Queen Emeraldas: I am Emeraldas, a free space trader. I'm a legitimately licensed trader. A free space trader, neither enemy or ally to anyone. Who are you?

    Tochirô Ôyama: Tochiro... Tochiro Oyama, to be precise.

    Queen Emeraldas: What do you want?

    Tochirô Ôyama: I am looking for a friend.

  • Queen Emeraldas: Harlock! Long time no see!

    Captain Harlock: Has a man named Tochiro been here?

    Tochirô Ôyama: Oh, you finally got here, huh?

  • Triter: [about Harlock's return] This may make you feel good, but it is very inconvenient for Earth. Earth is now choosing to maintain its cooperative relationship with Illumidus. Some idiots plot revolts and the like, but they will be suppressed. From now on, I want peace in the world. Dangerous elements like you do not fit Earth's policy. Thereofre, the government of Earth sentences you to eternal exile!

    Tochirô Ôyama: Say what?

    Captain Harlock: If you remain on Earth, we shall have to fight you.

    Captain Harlock: Fight, against us?

    Triter: You are enemies of Earth!

    Captain Harlock: Enemies of Earth?

    [the soldiers around lower their weapons and heads in shame]

    Captain Harlock: All right. If you say you're exiling us, then we'll leave.

    Tochirô Ôyama: Harlock!

    Queen Emeraldas: That's right. Living does not mean clinging on to Earth and becoming filthy pigs.

  • Queen Emeraldas: If Tochiro hadn't repaired this ship, I would have had to discard it. Use it!

    Tochirô Ôyama: Hold on! If you this ship, then no matter what excuse you give Emeraldas will lose her free trader license. Furthermore, as soon as Zoll takes off, Tokarga will be attacked; they won't wait till tomorrow. Let's go in another ship...

    Tochirô Ôyama: Harlock, let's go to Tokarga in Zoll's place.

  • Tochirô Ôyama: I've been waiting... waiting for so long... acting like a beggar, I've been waiting... for the day when I... I would fly my ship! I've been searching for a worthy captain to entrust my ship...

    Captain Harlock: Where... where is such a ship?

    Tochirô Ôyama: [crying] It's there! IT'S THERE!

  • Captain Harlock: Tochiro, you all right?

    Tochirô Ôyama: I'm fine, but the automatic sight is damaged. Without it, the relative angle... sight?

  • Tochirô Ôyama: Eat this!

    [opens fire]

  • Captain Harlock: Zeda's central hull is undamaged...

    Captain Harlock: Concentrate fire on the central part of the bridge!

    Tochirô Ôyama: Got it! Damn, my hands are shaking...

  • Captain Harlock: What is this?

    Tochirô Ôyama: The ship, with which I have fulfilled the dream of my distant ancestor... the Arcadia!

    Captain Harlock: Arcadia?

    Tochirô Ôyama: No other name will serve for the ship we travel in.

  • Tochirô Ôyama: [at a monitor] The Illumidus fleet, a huge armada of 624 ships...

    [the Arcadia follows Zeda's ship]

    Tochirô Ôyama: Zeda is trying to draw us in the opposite direction, away from the area of space where the fleet is heading...

  • Captain Harlock: Tochiro, you all right?

    Tochirô Ôyama: I, I'm still alive... but if he comes at us once more, who knows...?

  • [after a major brawl with Illumidus officers]

    Tochirô Ôyama: That was fun! My name's Tochiro! I'm getting out of here now!

    Captain Harlock: Me too!

  • [the Arcadia enters the Fire]

    Tochirô Ôyama: The ship's thermal shielding surpasses that of the Esmeraldas, but according to what Esmeraldas said, these streams have the strange ability of drawing the essence of living beings to themselves.

  • [examining a star map]

    Tochirô Ôyama: If we go this way, we run smack into the Illumidus fleet!

    Captain Harlock: Can we shake them off?

    Tochirô Ôyama: Not without changing course. But the only change we can make is to break through the Prominence of the Streams of Fire.

    Captain Harlock: The Stanley Witch of Space?

    Captain Harlock: That's right. The five fire streams suspended between the double suns of Besberas. It's the most difficult passage in space... where the Esmeraldas was beaten.

    Captain Harlock: Right! Just as my ancient ancestor dared, we too shall challenge the Stanley Witch of Space!

  • Tochirô Ôyama: Mira...!

    La Mîmé: Mira isn't the only one who died.

    Captain Harlock: WHAT?

    [Harlock and Tochiro discover only a Tokargan helmet and weapon]

    La Mîmé: To cancel the life-essence attracting the ship, they all...

    Tochirô Ôyama: Are you saying they jumped, into that river of flame...?

  • Mâya: This is the Voice of Free Arcadia... I am Maya. People of Earth, I wanted to keep calling to you always... I wanted to keep singing... but I... I cannot go on any longer... please, forgive me... this is the last of the Voice of Free Arcadia...

    [slumps to the ground]

    Captain Harlock: Maya!

    [takes her in her arms]

    Mâya: This...

    Captain Harlock: Maya! It's all right! It's all right!

    Mâya: Harlock... I truly believed that you would come back... that you were the kind of man... who could keep a promise even to a dead friend...

    Captain Harlock: Let us go together to that Sea of Stars.

    Mâya: I have been... dreaming for so long... of going to that Sea of Stars with you... like Heiligenstadt... our Arcadia... where we ran... together...

    [closes her eyes... ]

    Tochirô Ôyama: Maya!

    Captain Harlock: Maya, Maya! I had so many things to tell you, so many things to ask you... Maya!

  • Tochirô Ôyama: Maya... she was Harlock's...?

    Queen Emeraldas: Yes. Someone who did not chain down those she loved... someone you, too, would surely have loved.

  • Captain Harlock: A manual sight?

    [Tochiro takes up a casket]

    Tochirô Ôyama: It's in here!

    Captain Harlock: In there?

    Tochirô Ôyama: [opening the casket] Look!

    Captain Harlock: That's...

    Tochirô Ôyama: Yes... the sight your ancestor gave my ancestor!

    Captain Harlock: This is the eye that tied our bloodlibnes together...

    Tochirô Ôyama: Yes, OUR eye!

  • Tochirô Ôyama: Harlock, the gravity zone and the dimension wave around Arcadia are producing anomalies!

    [looks through the damaged automatic sight]

    Tochirô Ôyama: It looks all right... but using the machinery I can't tell the enemy's position!

    Captain Harlock: It was the explosion of Zeda's ship, the explosion of his powerful engine warped this dimension of space! Which means... he did it deliberately to protect us! OKAY! Frontal breakthrough! We're boarding their flagship!
