    Readaptation of one of dearly taken anime.
    A lot of people are here complaining about how it is a remake and dwelling on the old masterpiece not being this (which is a bit ill conclusive after 1-2 episodes given the masterpiece had 110). It will take a while to grow just as it did before, this series seemingly avoids explaining a lot of things to the watchers and rather keeps them for the more intellectual to figure out in comparison to ...

    People are talking out of their ass
    people are trashing this anime based on the old one, but this a great anime on its own.
    I have watched the old LoGH OVA 3 times over! and I can still say that this is a good anime. this is a readaptation, not a remake. Know the difference
    Just give it a try, without a heavy amount of bias.

    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 ...

    Awesome start, beginning to drag...
    (I never saw original, so pure unbiased review here!)
    Completed Season 1
    First 2 episodes got me really jacked for the series, but starting with episode 3, it devolved into back to back flashback episodes, and than some lukewarm setup. I get that it is a space drama, and dramas take time to build up to epicness, but honestly I think the pacing of the first 5 episodes is way ...

  • What if Game of Thrones and Star Trek had a baby?
    A space opera that focuses on dialogue and political motivations, but not at the sacrifice of exciting set piece moments. I draw the comparison to Game of Thrones, as with that series and this you can almost choose your own protagonist while the story flips between the perspective of each opposing side. Who you end up sympathising with will depend on your own values.

    Enjoyable watch. I binged ...

  • Ponderous, epic and compelling
    I fit the 'Legend of Galactic Heroes' novels and series very much into the tradition of 'beautiful young men rise to save Japan' fiction beloved of Nationalists. Japan's actual history of young officers driving the nation to ruin clearly wasn't sufficient warning.

    The early stories repeat a pattern that goes something like:

    OLD OFFICER: Do the thing!
    YOUNG OFFICER: Sir, if we do the thing ...

  • A great anime indeed
    Legend of the Galactic heroes: the second season has action and it has mind games. the animation is beautiful and you cant really know what will happen next. I recommend it and you will not be disapointed after watching it.
    I hope this continue til the end of the manga.

    Skip this one unless you like seeing the same thing happen over & over again
    To sum up this anime it is a series of people giving sound logical advice and being ignored because everyone in charge is incompetent and thus everyone dies meaningless and avoidable deaths e.i

    Capable second in command: commander its a trap
    Incompetent commander: SHUT UP! AND DO WHAT I SAY!!
    Capable second in command: yes excellency..beep beep. it's an enemy trap
    Incompetent ...

    It is the Alcohol's wish to be drunk
    An absolutely beautifully animated re-imagining of the original, somewhat depressing the rest will be released in three movies and that a lot of political background bits were cut out which is a little sad given that the show is a space opera, however it is good to see more new space anime and I hope it leads to more in the future.

    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 ...
