KEI

CHARACTER POWERS

She's a senior officer on Harlock's pirate crew and also the only human female on board. Her loyalty to Harlock is unquestioned as he saved life when she was a girl.

Kei is an expert fighter who can take down a dozen guys with her supreme pistol skills. Oh yeah, she might have a bit of a crush on her captain.

ACTRESS POWERS

Played by voice actress Miyuki Sawashiro who began her career 15 years ago at the tender age of 14. She has since played characters in animated films such as Appleseed Ex Machina, Evangelion 3.0 and Ghost In The Shell: Arise, among dozens of others. Sawashiro is also a singer.

SEXINESS POWERS

A blonde stunner, Kei wears a pink and black space suit that fits very snugly indeed.

Those who like a more dominant-type woman will adore the way Kei barks commands. For those keeping score, she has a very nice shower scene early in the film, which is very tastefully done.


MIIME

CHARACTER POWERS

The last of her race, known as the Niflung, Miime's people invented the dark-matter engine that powers Harlock's ship, the Arcadia.

She has a very close relationship with Harlock and serves as his adviser. While she has a gentle demeanour, she enjoys a good glass of wine. I want to be her boyfriend, please.

ACTRESS POWERS

The voice behind Miime is Yu Aoi, who is a huge star in Japan. She has appeared in some fantastic movies including All About Lily Chou-Chou and Hula Girls.

This isn't her first voice acting gig. She lent her vocal talents to the super-cool Redline. Aoi's cool personality also suits her character very well.

SEXINESS POWERS

Sorry, Kei, but this alien babe has the unfair advantage of being green. Though it might not sound very politically correct, everyone in the universe acknowledges the superior beauty of green-skinned, green-haired women.

Miime is also slender and graceful with cat eyes and pointed ears. She's basically my ideal woman.


CHARACTER POWERS

ROUND ONE: IT'S A DRAW

Sorry, but it's impossible to choose. They're both so cool!

ACTRESS POWERS

ROUND TWO: IT'S A DRAW

Though Aoi is the bigger star, Sawashiro is a pro in this field.

SEXINESS POWERS

ROUND THREE: MIIME

THE WINNER: MIIME

Both these space babes are worthy of worship, but Miime has the emerald edge. Green skin for the win.
