- Toshirô Ôyama: What... what are you going to do? Phantom F. Harlock II: I can't run into a sanctuary. It is the way of the pirate to take responsibility for his actions.
[Zeda's final words to Harlock] Zêda: Harlock, when we meet in Hell, let us drink as friends. Until then, realize your dreams without dying! Live, and be certain to realize your dreams! Farewell!
Title card: At the end of their lives, all men look back and think that their youth was Arcadia.
[first lines] [During World War I, a pilot is seen flying a biplane through a mountain range amidst a fierce thunderstorm] Phantom F. Harlock I: My name is Phantom F. Harlock. At that time, I was flying amidst rolling thunder from Port Moresby, traversing New Guinea, heading for Rabaul, on New Britain Island. As an aerial explorer, conquering the sky throughout the world was the dream upon which I staked my life. It was the Owen Stanley Mountains that stood in my way; its highest peak was 5030 metres, the mountain that has come to be feared by men as the Stanley Witch.
Phantom F. Harlock I: My name is Phantom F. Harlock, and this plane is the flesh of my flesh, sharing my blood; the friend that shares my fate; the Arcadia of my Youth. When this plane, with whom I shared my youth, with whom I rode the skies, has ceased to fly, so too will my life cease.
- Phantom F. Harlock II's gunsight was based on an actual Revi C-12D gunsight Leiji Matsumoto owns.
Serves as a prequel to "Uchû kaizoku kyaputen Hârokku" (1978), and a pilot for "Waga seishun no Arcadia: Mugen kidô SSX" (1982).
The quotation seen at the beginning of the film is taken from German writer Johann Wolfgang Goethe.
The musical score playing throughout the film contains bits of composer Antonin Dvorak's "The New World Symphony."
This was Yûjirô Ishihara's only role in an animated film (he was the voice of Phantom F. Harlock I).
