Galaxy Express 999

Galaxy Express 999 (銀河鉄道999(スリーナイン) Ginga Tetsudō Surī Nain) is a manga written and drawn by Leiji Matsumoto, later adapted into a number of anime films and television series. It is set in a spacefaring, high-tech future in which humans have learned how to transfer their minds and emotions with perfect fidelity into mechanical bodies, thus achieving practical immortality.[1][2] The manga won the Shogakukan Manga Award for shōnen in 1978.[3] The anime series won the Animage Anime Grand Prix prize in 1981. Matsumoto was inspired to create Galaxy Express 999 by the idea of a steam train running through the stars in the novel Night on the Galactic Railroad by Kenji Miyazawa.
