Hakugei � Legend of the Moby Dick
Hakugei � Legend of the Moby Dick: Ahab Awaits (Vol.1 Screener) :: ActiveAnime.com :: Where Anime News and Reviews Matters: "This science fiction adaptation of the classic work Moby Dick by Herman Melville takes the audience into the distant future where instead of hunting whales, Captain Ahab salvages giant abandoned spaceships that have been nicknamed �whales� for their hulking presence in the ocean of outer space. A fascinating rebirth, the same mysterious allure of sea adventures applies to those of space. The live fast, get rich, and die young attitude of the �whale hunters� is the dream of everyone to strike it big and live out the rest of their days in lazy splendor.
This volume introduces the universe of Moby Dick and sets up the story with just enough detail to let the audience know that there will be much unraveling of mysteries to follow in later episodes. Lucky Luck, the young narrator, wants to join Captain Ahab�s crew and become a glorious whale hunter himself. In his trials to be accepted he meets all of the eclectic crew members who make this tale worth telling. On the first hunt, they find a pod containing an android who serves to further complicate their lives with his unknown past. An interesting setting for this tale, there is much left to be discovered in this series.
The Legend of the Moby Dick is animated in the classic style of earlier shows, so don�t expect any innovations there. The main focus here is to futurize (as in surpassing modernize) the widely-known story. It�s fun to see a new mysterious interpretation which is the real draw of the show."
