    Shallow, Dumb and boring
    I am not going to compare this to the original. That is not the problem here. The characters are shallow. The action is boring. The battle tactics outright stupid. Seriously, a Trojan horse? In an ultra modern futuristic time with space ships and the best they can come up with is the oldest trick in the book?! With the enemy's station and fleet commanders of the most important fortress being ...

  • I don't usually like this genre but it's good
    I first have to preface this review with the disclosure that I have not watched the original series. My husband did though, and he tells me that the pacing is faster but that may be a good thing. I have compared to pictures from the old version and while I find the new one to feel more polished I think the characters were easier to distinguish in the old version. Also the blond transparent ...

  • Legend of the Galactic Heroes: Die Neue These - It's great!
    This show is a great change of pace. Seeing how different factions deal with each other at multiple levels is really interesting, including apolitical money interests. Here's hoping they can all throw off the shackles of fascism and fractional reserve banking lol!

    How is this so boring? I wanted to love this!
    I really wanted to like this anime. Everything I read about the series suggested this would be something special. But after watching it... It's just kinda meh. Most of the characters are bland and pretty forgettable. Space battles try to be these immense things of thousands of ships engaging in grand battles... but the result looks like an American Civil War battle in space. Both sides line up and ...

  • 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.
