Oh joy, streaming. :roll: I love the sound of the shows, especially Jellystone. Reminds me of The Looney Tunes Show. Alas, 'twas not to be...

Crud. Loved the first season, and thought the second was enjoyable enough.

I only just learned of the existence of Infinity Train last week, as one of the show's art directors was a guest presenter in one of my online classes.

The show seems like a 'spiritual cousin' of the classic Galaxy Express 999 anime TV/movie series ..

Which, I take it, influenced or led to this...?



Knowing about that film is about as it seems I have gotten to this franchise, but had I no idea about Infinity Train until Gaastra's post.

That Galaxy Express 999 trailer is for the 1979 movie, which features a 'crossover' between 999, Harlock & Emeraldas .. all manga characters created by Leiji Matsmoto.

Captain Harlock was starring in his eponymous anime TV series at the time, and would go on to have a theatrical adventure of his own, in 1982 .. and subseqently, in various other productions (including the one you'd linked above). Pirate Queen Emeraldas would also get her own brief DTV series, in the 1990s.

But the Galaxy Express 999 TV series (which is currently, finally becoming available with english subtitles on Blu-ray from Discotek .. with a set containing the first 39 episodes released earlier this year, and a second set due for release next week) -- like the Infinity Train series -- grapples with philosophical questions and the human condition .. but on a train which travels through outer space, and with the people being 'helped/learned from' as denizens of (often fantastically-designed) alien planets, which are stops along its route.

Another great OG-anime Droosan post--
Captain Harlock came first (qv. "My Youth In Arcadia", one of the package of 80's "retro" anime features now licensed back to streaming), as Matsumoto likes to universe-link his characters together, and it's hinted that our GE999 hero is wearing the same hand-me-down hat and gun as Harlock's old sidekick.

And while the GE999 Movie is no longer streaming for free on Amazon Prime (although the "Adieu" sequel is), the TV series is streaming just about every darn where, although possibly best FWA on Crunchyroll.com.
It's silly and naive, as even the best Matsumoto "Star Blazers" episode could be, but has more of a space-fairytale quality. The last episode suggests this was all "allegory", and there's more than a little of Pinocchio & the Blue Fairy in our two characters.
