Yoshiki Tanaka's Legend of the Galactic Heroes, telling a sci-fi war based on 19th century Prussian conflicts inspired a huge body of anime between 1988 and 2000, including 110 OVA episodes and 52 side-story OVA episodes. Now, for the first time in over a decade and a half, a new anime project is in the works.
The series had plenty of die-hard fans, and it's the ones who attended the opening of the latest stage production, Legend of the Galactic Heroes Chapter IV: After the Clash, who first heard this news.
