The last name of the main character of both works is "(I.e."Is a coincidence, but Matsumoto said in an interview.The name "Hoshino" in this book may have been unknowingly imprinted on me."[1][Note 1].

From 1977 to 1981,Shonen Gaho-sha"Boy king,” was serialized as a signboard work for the magazine. All 18 volumes of hit comics. 23rd (1977)Shogakkan Manga AwardMasterpiece of Reiji Matsumoto who won the prize. During the serialization, it was made into a TV animation and a theater animation and it became a big hit to secure the origin of the animation boom,Space Battleship Yamato SeriesIt also caused the Reiji Matsumoto boom in the 50s.

The series ended in 1981, and initially it was completely completed and there was no sequel.[2].

After that, extra short short films for events were being made, but in 1996Shogakukan"Big goldThe serialization of the sequel begins in the magazine. After the suspension of "Big Gold" magazine in 1999, "Big comicAfter that, it was serialized on the Web irregularly, and Matsumoto wanted to draw up to 999 episodes.[3].. In the related book, "Reiji Matsumoto's Large Anatomy: Infinite Zero-Dimensional Space," the "Shonen King" version is divided into "Andromeda" and the new work from 1996 is divided into "Eternal".[4].. The Eternal edition was made into a theatrical animation in 1998, and its sequel to the story's completion was scheduled to be released as a theatrical animation in 1999, but it has failed.

Kenji Miyazawaof"Galactic train night"WhenMaurice Maeterlinkof"Blue BirdWas started as a hint[5][6][7].. The framework of the story is based on the Galactic Railroad that appears in "Galaxy Railroad Night", but the details of the train and operation system areNational railwayIs used as a model. Matsumoto himself, together with "Galaxy Express Night" and "Blue Bird",SLIt says that it is based on the youth experience of going to Tokyo by train[8][9].

In the title 999, the meaning of the end of unfinished youth before becoming 1000 of an adult is put[10].

Work description

OriginallySpace Pirate Captain Harlock] Was also an animation project. When it wasn't possible to make it into an animation, and it was unavoidable to serialize each manga, Reiji Matsumoto was also involved.Space Battleship YamatoThe boom has come. Both works were made into TV animation[11].

According to the explanation by Matsumoto himself in the program of NHK radio drama (described later), "Harlock", "Emeraldas" and "999" were originally envisioned as the same story. It was reconstructed as a story of. Such remarks are also found in interviews in other media.

The Eternal edition, which was started in 1996, has 2004 episodes published by 41, and four newly drawn episodes were published in the special edition of "Big Comics Superior" commemorating the 2005th anniversary of Matsumoto's manga artist in 50. No new episode was drawn at the end of, and many of the hints remain uncollected. The Eternal edition is not a pure sequel to the original Andromeda edition, because the settings for the second movie version of the theater have been incorporated. However, the book is numbered and published as a continuation of the Andromeda edition.

From this Eternal edition, Matsumoto actively expanded the world view and changed the setting, and other works "Space Pirate Captain Harlock" "Queen Emeraldas''Shintaketori Story 1000 Queen''Nibelung's Ring』And the story is linked, the relationship between Maetel and Emeraldas was "rival" in the manga Andromeda edition and the television animation based on it, but in the Eternal edition it has been changed to "twin sisters" ..

Game information magazine "2008"Famitsu』Even in 999, we touched on the Eternal edition in an interview when drawing the cover of the Galaxy Express 999 according to the number of 999, and also touched on the concept of the final story "I have not added the end mark" "serialization "It's not an end, it's just an interruption."

In 2012, 2013Masachi Wachi"GALAXY EXPRESS 999 ULTIMATE JOURNEY" was announced. This is the continuation of the Eternal Edition, but the setting of Space Battleship Yamato and the animation project "New Space Battleship Yamato" → "Great Yamato", and even the animation project "Cosmo Super Dreadnought Mahoroba -Super Dimension Battleship-" It is involved and rebuilt. The setting of this novel is also reflected in "".

In 2018, as ``999 40th anniversary'', as a reboot-like work of Eternal EditionShimazaki"Galaxy Express 999 ANOTHER STORY Ultimate Journey" has begun to be serialized in Champion RED magazine.In addition, unlike Matsumoto's Eternal edition, this work is clearly depicted as a sequel to the two old theatrical versions.
In the same year, it was also made into a stage drama and a live-action TV drama.


It basically consists of a series of short stories, one episode per planet where 999 stops.


Draw Tetsuro's journey until he arrives at a star that rides No. 999 with Metel and gives me a body of a machine in the Andromeda Nebula for free.

Regarding the Andromeda edition, the world view is slightly different between the original / TV anime version and the two feature-length theatrical versions.

In the original and TV anime versions, there are many episodes about human stupidity, loneliness, weakness, economic disparity, and the absurdity of the world against the backdrop of a powerful society.In addition, many of the worldviews are thought to be based on lessons learned from human history.In addition overallノ ス タ ル ジ アIt has a structure that makes you feel strongly, and SL is appointed for the train[Note 2]Including that, Maetel is projected on the image of the mother, JapanDowntownThe word "nostalgic" appears many times in the play, as opposed to the theme of "future" as a science fiction work, such as the planet where the natural scenery is reproduced.

In the theatrical version, while partly following the above-mentioned world view, the cohesiveness of the swashbuckler and youth works has become stronger.

Consistently, "What is life?" "Is it really happy to live forever?"View of lifeThe search for is a big theme.

Eternal Edition

The stage is one year after the Andromeda edition. Draw until Tetsuro rides No. 1 again with Maetel and arrives at the terminal station, Eternal, which is in the Artemator system.

Andromeda edited by the original, TV animation version, theatrical animation version have different developments, each with different endings, and although this work is an expression form of manga, it is not a direct sequel to the original Andromeda version There is an expression that can be taken as a sequel to, and because it is not clear, various interpretations have been made about the eternal edition. In the actual composition, many situations developed in the Andromeda edition by any media are depicted so as not to be chained, so that the contradiction is as small as possible from any of manga, TV anime, and animated movies.

Elements inherited from the movie version
  • There is no description that Emeraldas is sick. In the original Andromeda edition and the TV version, it is said that he suffered from illness and his life expectancy was low. However, in the first part of "The Ring of Nibelung" linked to "Eternal Edition", there is a scene in which Metel cares about Emeraldas' body.
  • In the scene where Tetsuro refers to the reason why the mechanized person was killed, it is said that the supply of energy capsules from the planetary Andromeda has stopped and the mechanized person on the earth has been annihilated, the food of the mechanized person in the second movie It is based on the setting of the energy capsule that appeared as.
  • When Tetsuro picked up the warrior's gun again,Tochiro(Tetsuro has no acquaintance with Tochiro in the original and TV versions. The original owner of the warrior gun inherited by Tetsuro is not revealed, so it is concluded that it is Totiro. Can not).
Elements inherited from the original Andromeda edition (TV animation version)
  • This trip is called "the second trip"[12].
  • Claire died in the asteroid belt (ghost) tunnel[13].
  • Tetsuro thinks Antares is still alive.

Regarding the ending station in the original Andromeda edition and the end of the planetary Andromeda, it was mentioned in the words of Metel that it is the true center of the Andromeda Nebula, "being drawn into the supergravity graveyard where even light cannot escape", In the Eternal edition, it is an expression that went further in the words of Metel on Pluto, ``Planetary Andromeda was sucked into a black hole and destroyed'', and that it followed the same end route as the terminal station of the TV animation version / Planet Promesum Is being told.

Regarding Hermazzaria, in the form of shedding the wish she was asked just before taking her breath, she couldn't see Tetsuro in trouble?Metel tells Tetsuro immediately after that, but Tetsuro later tells Hermazzaria's child. There is also a contradiction, such as when I met them, I thought that I should have forgotten that and lived.


On the stage, each planet in the galaxyGalactic railwayThe future world connected by a train running in outer space called (TV animation versionThen set the year 1 in the narration at the beginning of the first episode). Many wealthy people in the universe transferred their souls to mechanical bodiesMechanizedHe enjoyed an eternal life next time, but the poor were unable to get the body of the machine and were subject to persecution by the mechanized.

It also shows the excitement of laughing away.
A father with many children, he had not been home for more than two months. In the TV version, he was told that his wife had been killed while trying to rob mechanics of his supplies, and he refused to remarry Metel.
In the first movie version, she appeared as a bandit boss with a hideout in Titan and was feeding the orphans whose parents were killed by the Count of Machines. The body is slimmer than the original and the TV version, and the appearance is also fearless.

In the original work, the piece of Claire's body that Tetsuro had at this time will be a key item to save Tetsuro's crisis at the terminal station. Played by someone in the Eternal edition, he works for 999 dining cars (labeled "CLAIR RESTAURANT 999" on the cover of the menu). Sometimes, instead of the conductor, Tetsuro gives explanations and advice about the stopping stars. The original body was stored on Pluto, but it was stolen by someone.
In the first movie version, it passed the asteroid belt tunnel safely, so it appears until the end. Even though he had a love affair with Tetsuro, he could be seen all over the place when he noticed that Tetsuro had a favorable interest in Maetel.
At the end of the game, he destroyed and shattered the half body of Promethium, who tried to kill Tetsuro, in exchange for his own life.
It is a rare existence that keeps the human mind, which is rare for mechanized people, and at the same time, it stands out from other mechanized people in that its body is made of crystal glass.
However, Mirai, one of Promethium's aides, also has a body made of glass like Claire.
Because of his gentle personality, Tetsuro has a great deal of trust, and Tetsuro sometimes calls him "Claire-san" and "san".
Voice- Mieko Shinsawa / Yoshiko Fujita(Third movie version)
A mechanized person who is the guardian of Pluto, and is called "The Shadow of the Lost Star". Although it became the body of a machine, it was not as beautiful as the face when it was a real body, so the face was ridiculous.
I regret having become the body of a machine.While I wanted to return to a beautiful body, I couldn't give up my eternal life, and I was at a loss.In the television version, he was trying to take away Tetsuro's soul, which he needed to return to his living body, by showing him his mother's vision and pulling him away from Maetel.In the first movie version, he couldn't stand the loneliness of himself and aimed at Tetsuro, but Maetel pointed out his doubts and gave up.In the second movie version, 1 did not stop at Pluto, but only passed through, but only one cut appeared looking up at 2.

Voice- Haruko Kitahama
A mechanized person who lives in a house at the bottom of gravity and has the ability to manipulate time. As a result, the 333 was derailed, and the time inside the car was advanced to change the passengers of the 333 to white bones. He is a train derailer and says he will be the 999th train on the 20. Because of the loneliness of living alone, he tells Tetsuro to take Tetsuro to his house and give him a mechanical body on the condition of living together, but he refuses it. Crown told Tetsuro to live together after talking about how he became a machine, but when he saw Tetsuro's firm willingness to give up on it, the time came when Tetsuro would decide whether to take Maetel or take freedom. And released him.
According to Crown, she turned her body into a mechanical body just as a man he was dating 500 years ago said, and was abandoned by this man. It was said that the situation was drawn in detail on the TV version. As a result, she was once a flamenco dancer and the name of the man she was associated with was Baron Croque (voice- Tokumaru Kan) Was revealed.
Fake Herlock / Kageo
Voice- Yasuhara Yoshito / Akio Otsuka(1997 radio drama) / Makio Inoue(Reiji Matsumoto 999)
A mechanized person who reigns as the ruler of the planet Heavy Melder. Kageo is a credit notation in anime. He deceived Harlock and did all he could to do wrong. The first movie version has been released prior to the episode "Pirate of Time Castle", in which Fake Herlock and Reluze, which will be described later, appear, and Time Castle will be the residence of Fake Herlock. In addition, it is clear from Nisehar Rock and his subordinates, "Castle that can walk from past to future," that it also functions as a time machine.
Even in the battle of Maetel, it was a cowardly act of slipping Tetsuro on the night before his mother was killed by a pit in the castle, but at the end it was betrayed by his mistress Reluze. As a result of advancing the time, the body will be erased leaving the electronic brain.
Maetel's depictions are such that they can be taken as friends who have traveled together with each other in the past, and when they see the appearance of only an electronic brain, Maetel sheds tears, and Fake Harlock is like Tetsuro once. He says he was a young man with a strong heart.
In the TV version, a depiction of the dark place and the extreme dislike of light was added, as well as the scene of adding violence to Reluuse. It is portrayed as an unforgivable enemy for Maetel, and there is no depiction to pity him at the end of his life. However, even in the TV version, it was told in the words of Metel that they were once trying to restore justice to the universe together with Metel, and it is said that he was a coward who betrayed her and killed many friends. It is also said that he kept taking Maetel's initiative and did not give her a chance to fight back.
Voice- Kaori Kumiko / Yuko Kobayashi(1997 Radio Drama)
He is a tavern diva in Heavy Melder and a mistress of Fake Harlock. Crowne's sister who lives at the bottom of gravity, she is also a mechanic. It has the ability of time slip and can move in the flow of time. Appearing to be a young woman, she is certainly older because her sister, Crown, is over 500 years old.
It is a character equivalent to the mistress and crown of the machine count that appeared in the first movie version, and from the lyrics it can be seen that "Do not be gentle" sung by the movie version of Crown is singing at the bar. He takes Tetsuro who follows Meetel to Time Castle, but brings back Tetsuro who was dropped into the flow of time. At the end, he betrayed Fake Herlock and advanced the time of the castle with themselves and shared his fate with the castle.
In the TV version, he sings "Memori Midairo". In addition, the story from when my sister's crown disappeared until I met Fake Herlock was also drawn. In the original, there is no depiction of when she is at the end, and while Mattel also mentions Fake Herlock as a depiction after the fall of Time Castle, in the television version the depiction is split by Reluez. Time that collapses It is depicted that the body is decaying while playing the guitar in the castle while singing "memorable dark colors", following the movie version of the time castle collapse scene. A scene was also drawn where Tetsuro found Reluez's guitar from the wreckage of the castle left behind and returned to the tavern to hand her guitar to the tavern master.
S・F・Metal Mena
Claire's successor waitress who appears only in the original. A mechanized person with a big-mouthed sister-like appearance. His words and deeds were quite violent, and he even shot Tetsuro's "warrior's gun" in the car of Galaxy Express XNUMX, but as a result, he helped Tetsuro. There are many mysteries because of his ironic and hated personality when he is grateful. It appeared in several episodes in a row and was a meaningful existence both inside and outside the story, but after that it does not appear as if it had never happened.
Metal Mena (voice-Yoko Asakami) will also appear in the second movie version, but there is nothing in common except for the setting of Claire's successor and mechanic.
Voice- Ryoko Kinomiya
The mother of Metel and the queen of the mechanical empire. Wait for Tetsuro at the terminal station. We are promoting not only human mechanization by the body of machines but also mechanization of the entire universe.
Voice-Akiko Tsuboi (1997 Radio Drama) / Hiroko Emori(Reiji Matsumoto 999)
A mechanized person who works as an aide to Prometheme in the original work, and does not appear in anime. Claire's mother turned her body into crystal glass. According to Claire's dialect, it's a great look. In consideration of the human beings who will become the bodies of machines from now on, their faces are blunt and black to avoid prejudice.
At Tetsuro Catalog, a transit station near the terminal station, he appears in front of Tetsuro as a machine catalog delivery person. At the temporary stop, "The Last Supper," just before the terminal station, I was observing the behavior of Tetsuro in the guise of a young woman.

Characters from Eternal Edition

*Characters that appeared in the third movie version "Eternal Fantasy" are also listed with voice actors.
Electronic fairy canon
Voice- Keiko Toda
999 human-shaped parts. 999 avatars, but with their own ego. It was said that he could not get out of the locomotive because it was a part, but it is possible to confirm the appearance of a canon that appears from the passenger car before departure from Destiny.
The tabby cat, who lived with Tetsuro, who had been confined on Earth, both boarded 999.
Dark queen
The enemy role in the Eternal edition. It controls the methanoids and promotes the extinction of organic life forms. However, since he did not show tears to soldiers of the planet Aphrodite who died unprofessionally, and did not harm or read Tetsuro who was invited to his body, he was a ruthless villainous villain. Not so, and Maetel describes her as "not a villain." Regarding that matel, there is a possibility that he avoids a direct confrontation, saying, "If there is a collision, he may take his universe with him." In addition, I am aware that the methanoids that are under control are "not necessarily betraying myself someday." (In fact, it was later suggested that some methanoids, including one of Hermazzaria's children, Rowell, were resisting Dark Queen.)
Volkazanda III
Voice- Kiyoyuki Ryota
The person himself who took the earth and extinguished it at the command of Dark Queen. The original is said to be a proud military officer of Hermazzaria, but in the movie version it is the same person as the president of the earth that appeared at the beginning of Eternal Edition, and was executed by Hermazzaria under the responsibility of missing 999.
Voice- Noriko Hitaka
The only owner of a hot spring inn on the planet Breitling Firefly. Father (voice- Kazuya Tatebe) And live together.
The planet was destined to be destroyed because it was destroyed and destroyed by the hands of Dark Queen.
Voice- Ryoko Sakakibara
A female warrior of Methanoid who is loyal to Dark Queen and is called "Knight of Our Lady". I was beaten against Tetsuro.LowellとTear (Mewell)He was worried that Tetsuro had done the same thing as the Count Earl who killed his mother when he met them. Later, Rowell was killed in the battle with Dark Queen, and Tia grew to look like Hermazzaria, and reunited with Tetsuro on the planet "Poison."
"Nibelung's Ring] Has also appeared.

There are very few regular characters, only Tetsuro, Metel, and conductor (from Eternal Edition Canon and Claire, Mie-kun is also regular). This is because the story composition is highly weighted by guest characters.

Characters that appear in other Matsumoto works such as Harlock and Emeraldas, which did not appear much in the original, also appear in the front in the movie version. In the Eternal edition, as well as in the movie version, both appear as main characters, and the relationship with Tetsuro and others is increasing compared to the Andromeda edition.

The original author Matsumoto wrote about the characters in a message to fans in a roman album that featured the second movie version, ``Harlock, Emeraldas, Meetel, etc. They are all “teachers of life” for Tetsuro.”

It may stop at.The theme is roughly one episode per planet.I can't talk about the humans living on each planet in detail, but one of the episodes, "The Cowardly Elder Star," is said to be an old colonial star, according to Maetel. In some scenes, "Children" also said that "people have moved", and the inhabitants living on the planets that appear in this work are immigrants who have moved from the earth to each planet.[Note 3]There are many planets, but there are also planets that have only indigenous people who originally lived on the planet.
