You may have noticed I haven’t said anything about women yet. That is because the role of women in the Leijiverse will require its own post. The fact that Harlock, the ultimate man, battles a women will probably require its own post. While male-centric, the Leijiverse has more powerful and brave women than many comparable space operas. Matsumoto is not just making simplistic nostalgia for a past that never was. Bushido is necessary for manhood, but one does not have to be man to live by it. The female characters demonstrate the complexities in living this code, and it is their triumphs (and failures) that raise his work to a higher level.
A man must choose death before dishonor. He must stay loyal to his comrades. He must also brave the unknown. In every Matsumoto story, there is the point in which the young man with the floppy hair must make the choice to go into space. Whether by battleship, pirate ship, or train, going to space symbolizes following one’s own path. This is necessary for manhood.
But Tochiro also saves Harlock many times, because he is clever. His realm is that of the mind — he is the ultimate engineer, capable of building the Arcadia singlehandedly. Let me repeat that. He built the greatest space battleship the universe has ever seen, by himself, without anyone noticing. He is epic. Beowulf with a monkey wrench. While Harlock is the most European of anime characters, Tochiro is decidedly Japanese. It is mentioned in several continuities that he is a descendant of samurai. Through his courage and loyalty to the cause of freedom, Tochiro is as much a samurai as Harlock. He represents a Japan where the intellectual can achieve samurai status. And even if someone is not a fighter, they don’t have to surrender their cultural legacy. During the 1970s, Japan was having a renaissance in arts and sciences, spearheaded by creators such as Matsumoto himself. The Leijiverse is filled with engineers, doctors, and scientists who do whatever is in their power to fight for freedom. They are contrasted against feminized men who devote their time to leisure and gratification. With his space opera, Matsumoto sought to lead the young of Japan back to “following their dreams,” and it is clear he equates this to bushido. Of course, his work is universal, and his message about honor spread across the globe.
John Bunyan (1628-1688) The Pilgrim's Progress The Author and his Reader: Christian Literature as Conversation. Heather-Ann Wickers compares and contrasts Geoffrey Chaucer's The Canterbury Tales and John Bunyan's The Pilgrim's Progress as examples of Christian Literature.
In addition to romanticizing the past through bushido heroes, Matsumoto also creates a template for the present. The nation’s demilitarization called for a whole new concept of Japanese manhood. What was once an imperial power was now becoming a technological power, and Matsumoto’s goal was creating bushido for a postwar world. This is most evident in the character of Tochiro. Famously based off of Matsumoto himself, he has the same “potato person” design developed to represent the everyman in his 1971 comic Tochiro is short and not very good in a fight, but he never backs down when honor is at state. In both the Harlock movie and TV show, Harlock meets Tochiro by saving him from a beating. It is notable that in these stories, the bullies who beat Tochiro are occupying soldiers and cowboys, respectively. In other words, analogues for Americans.
