  • An Almost Perfect Military Sci Fi Epic
    As a newcomer to the series I completely love this and am basically over the moon for it. I can't wait to find out what happens to Yang and Reinhard and will be reading the books to make that happen.

    This is like the show I always wanted. It's like a much cooler and better thought out version of sci fi that surpasses all my previous sci fi favorites like star wars, battlestar, the expanse etc. ...

  • A Masterpiece Remastered
    Confession: at the time of writing this review, I have yet to see the original. Not gonna lie, it's gonna be hard to go back to watch the original series, just on the basis of how good the visuals in this remake are. However, the art isn't going to stop me. This show is AMAZING. This completely deserves a watch. The story is so, so, so good. The characters are compelling, the action was so fun. It ...

  • The greatest anime ever
    This show is the greatest anime of all time thats all i gotta say. The way they speed up the battles and the different politcal ideologies they portray in this show is superb. The show alos has no bias to either side both sides are given equal time to shine and the main characters on both sides are given excellent supporting characters.

  • Space Opera done right
    Never saw the original (is it even available on any of the modern streaming services?) but really enjoyed this show. On the surface it seems like it is about space battles (which are a spectacle) but really it is about the characters. Felt a bit rushed in parts and possibly would have benefited from double the episode count to further develop some of the characters, but given how rare this ...

  • Pretty god damn good
    As someone who has not seen or heard of the original (as it seems this is a remake of a greatly loved original series) this show is glorious. Who doesnt love watching pretty lights in space? I know the show is much more than that and focuses more on the interactions between the 2/3 main characters and the challenges they must overcome but pretty space lazers.

    Minor gripe is that for a people ...

  • Leaves me wanting more!
    My biggest disappointment is that there isn't more—makes me want to turn to the source material! I haven't been this satisfied by a space opera since Babylon 5. This is a classic space opera, with a strong anti-war message.

    Japanese anti-war content always feels really genuine to me. It's difficult not to create something emotionally impactful with that much earnestness.

  • You can't ask for BETTER
    With the advent of the disappointing cough star cough wars,

    THIS was more than an adequate if not illustrious REPLACEMENT...ok, nothing replaces SW but this sure as heck comes close!

    From character development to sheer action both in and out of star ships and, dare I say it, MILITARY STRATEGIST SUPREME!

    Admiral Yang
    Marquis 'Blonde Brat'

    You can guess who I'm rooting for!

  • Excellent re-adaptation!
    Great characters, intriguing story and the balance between the main characters is fantastic. The space battles are cool and interesting and the animation is absolutely fantastic.

    Things others might not have mentioned is how amazing the music is! Not only is it good but it excellently captures the tone of the series

    It really is a worthy re-adaptation of a legendary series! 100% recommended!

  • The show is a true masterpiece of an anime.
    Yes, I know I said that title for perhaps one-two different animes. However, in this category sci-fi it holds it. Legends of the Galactic Heros tells the story of two different worlds. However, before they became such, they were originally one world, ruled by one individual. Of course, that didn't go so well. Especially since a mere 800 people from that one planet escaped to a whole new planet and ...

  • 2nd Season the charm
    Where it started out a bit rough; the series has settled into its pacing and developed into its own fantastic telling of the story. I am a huge fan of the Original LoGH, and I greatly appreciate what this new adaption brings us, including great visuals.
