Space Pirate Captain Herlock: The Endless Odyssey - Outside Legend (2002)

Space Pirate Captain Herlock: The Endless Odyssey - Outside Legend is a 13 episode OVA series based on the 1977 manga series by Leiji Matsumoto. It is meant as a sequel / remake of the 1978 television series Space Pirate Captain Harlock and is the sixth anime adaptation of the franchise.

A note on the title: The spelling is neither a mistranslation nor a typo. While the title of the Japanese release was spelled "Harlock", the title screen at the beginning of each episode reads "Herlock". Geneon (the company that licensed the series for a U.S. release) opted to make the English title match the opening credits. Both the subtitles and the English dub dialogue still refers to the titular character as "Harlock".

The following weapons were used in the OVA Space Pirate Captain Herlock: The Endless Odyssey - Outside Legend:

Minebea M-9

The police forces in the Junk Heap carry Minebea M-9 submachine guns.

Minebea M-9 - 9x19mm Parabellum
This seems like rather dated technology for this to be 2980.

Mauser Gewehr 1898

A Mauser Gewehr 1898 rifle can be seen at Tochiro's grave. This differs from the series opening credit sequence, which shows Tochiro's grave as being marked by a wooden cross and a pistol in a holster.

The primary sidearm for the Earth Garrison Forces is the Type 94 pistol.

Model 24 Stielhandgranate

Kei also gathers several Model 24 Stielhandgranates from the Arcadia armory.

Cosmo Percussion M78

Kei Yuki carries the fictitious Cosmo Percussion M78 energy pistol throughout the series. In most incarnations of the franchise, the M78 is the standard sidearm for the Arcadia's crew. It is based primarily off of the Nambu Type 14, and its fuel cell is replaced the same way a new magazine is loaded into a Type 14.

Cosmo Dragoon

Harlock's sidearm is the Cosmo Dragoon, a custom variant of the Cosmo Percussion M78 modeled after the Colt Dragoon (hence the name). The weapon is one of four or five (the number varies from series to series) unique high-powered pistols built by Tochiro.

Gravity Sabre

Harlock's primary weapon is an laser rifle known as the Gravity Sabre, which doubles as both a stockless laser rifle and a sword. Despite its name, the Gravity Sabre's size and cup hilt cause it to bear a closer resemblance to an 18th century Italian rapier than to a sabre.
