    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 ...

    Quite enjoyable, imho
    I've been enjoying this anime. It differs from the original in some pacing and character development parts, but, on the whole, these are pragmatic decisions, and do not severely detract from the anime.
    It has done a good job scratching my itch for LOTGH stuff, and has me wanting for more: I got my premium account 'cause I wanted to binge this series specifically.

    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 ...

    Primed to Equal the Original
    Legend of the Galactic Heroes: Die Neue These is a remake of a Sci-Fi Epic series from the 1980s and 1990s. The original was great for several reason and, while only two episodes of this remake are out so far, it appears that the remake is made with the kind of care that fans of the original series will love.

    I would like to criticize some of the reviews of this anime that focus on the ...

  • 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.

  • 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!

  • 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 ...

  • 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.
