  • a great redo of an amazing classic
    Honestly I loved the first version, this one stays pretty true to the classic with an updated feel. I am looking forward to seeing how the rest of it comes along. I am happy that for the most part all the core personalities have stayed true, which I will admit was a concern in the beginning. Its worth watching.

  • Retelling LoGH (give me dusty)
    Legend of the Galactic Heroes: Die Neue These presents the original series in a much more compact version. However, this is not to say that its core themes and arguments are erased - in fact, many of the themes presented and discussed in LoGH carried over from before are themes that should be discussed in today's society considering growing political concerns. Outside of this, as stated, Die Neue ...

  • A Truly Remarkable Experience
    As a newcomer who has not seen the original I have no idea how this compares to the original, but from what I've seen this show is one the best.
    From the well developed characters, expert balance of the different viewpoints, and complex and mature storytelling this truly a very well written show. On the other hand the visuals, animation and music are also something truly breathtaking.
    A true ...

  • Interesting but mostly shallow characters, flimsy plot, poor tactics.
    What bugs me in this is the high level of plot armor. Any battle where they go against a main character's ideals will be a disaster, but as soon the character shows up they will fix everything with proven battle tactics like getting surrounded. Insane luck/strategy can work in an anime (i.e. Akagi), but this anime doesn't put enough thought into why and how the commanders strategies actually ...

  • Absolutely stellar (pun intended)
    An incredible update of an excellent older show. Cannot recommend enough. The animation and aesthetic design is awesome, and the updated pacing and cinematography (is that what it's called in anime?) is excellent. They maintained the soul of the original show with a fancy new outer shell.

    A Reactionary and Opinionated Bout of Banter
    First off, ship designs. CURVY SHIPS!? SKREEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! Give me back my original Imperial ships please. Current FPA ships look like a mix of original Imperial and FPA ships. S' alright, I guess.

    Onto the Voice Actors; please no
    It doesn't sound right at all, having watched those movies, the side story OVA's and then the actual OVA series. Some of the original ...

    Absolutely incredible.
    This is simply the best anime I've ever seen. It encouraged me to pick up the books and the show does an excellent job of sticking to the source material. I cannot recommend this anime highly enough. This is a space opera which focuses more on characters than fighting. It also seems to be aimed at making you like the people and sympathetic for how the war hurts people, and not which side is ...

    A Space Opera with Music to Match
    Listen to the opening theme. Listen to the closing theme. This is a serious space opera with dram and conflict. While I have not seen the entire series before, at ten episodes in I can say its worth your time.

    Synopsis: An empire and a republic are at war with one another. Two incredibly competent generals on either side play politics while balancing military strategy. They have varying ...

    I never saw the original....
    You read me correct, i never seen the original Galactic Heroes so this one is all I know, and it is BEAST! Look if your'e into brain over brawn mixed with a space setting this show is for you. I honestly can't get enough of it. Can't wait to see how things pan out as the story progresses.
