  • 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.

    This Anime is Extremely boring...
    I'm sorry, I know that i'm supposed to like this show but I just cant. There is only 1 fight in the beginning (which is rushed) and 1 at the end, and the rest is all talking and slow CGI scenes of battleships that might do battle at some point some day. Obviously some spoilers.

    War Anime without tactics...
    If you looking for Tactics or Strategy you wont find any here. Nothing clever is in the ...

    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.

    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 ...
