>that feel when you will never be on a spaceship, fighting a war against a technologically superior alien race
Why are space operas so good?
Even bad space operas are good.
I don't know why they magically are that wayu
I think thatss why LOGH is so highly regarded. It wasnt THAT good, but at least it gave us like 80 hours worth of shit to watch.
Try Star Wars.
Yeah it was pretty good, but it isn't anything like how it's praised.
I really can't get enough space stuff. I haven't even started LOGH yet. Reading Stardust Memories now.
I am the only one of my friends who thought 2001: A Space Odyssey was good.
>You'll never have your own spaceship
Space opera are crap that kill meaning of sci-fi.
probabaly /v/ related, but what's that new game that's new open world space sim coming out on kickstarter.
You know the one with half decent graphics.
>too poor to create your own space agency
just finished logh.
was not ready for those reuenthal feels
need another space opera to drown out the sorrow
agreed. Star Trek is the last hard ish sci fi that is stillish popular.
I'll admit, that the existence of space opera has really blurred the lines in the popular mind about what sci-fi is about, but that doesn't mean good sci-fi isn't being produced because everyone wants to make Star Wars.
Which anime series really classify as space opera besides LOGH and Banner of the Stars?
>you will never pilot a mech
f space tourism
I'd be investing in asteroid mining.
>wait till space flight costs go down a bit
>attach nuclear powered rocket engines onto large asteroid with huge metallic reserves
>crash it into the moon
>mine the shit out of it
>use profit to build fleet of intergalactic space ships
>make anime about it
yeah go back to /tv/ greedo fired first.
nuke-a-lurr powered space ship that almost happened:
Not all space operas are good, and I must be one of the few with no interest in mechas nor aliens, but damn does LoGH keep me interested.
Sure the animation and QUALITY are lackluster at times, but the music and characters make up for it tenfold.
I think that's where most anime fails, they deliver at first glance interesting characters, but mediocre fleshed out character interactions.
I could watch hours of Yang Wenli discussing politics and history to his waifu, their interaction is just adorable.
Has there even been any good space opera out lately?
There isn't anything though without aliens and mecha, only other thing I can think of is Planetes.
As for LOGH what bothered me was yang's death, as well as the whole cult that kinda was just there for the sake of being there.
There was Tytania.
2199 was really good, though that's kinda cheating.
But I want to transform and fly and cruise through space all in one
Well, I kinda knew already that Yang will die because I've lurked too many LoGH threads, and as for now the earth cult doesn't seem that meaningless.
They were forshadowed a long time ago and their actions seem very human like.
No Man's Sky?
Forgot my image.
Starwars isn't a space opera no matter how much it wants to be.
Can't have nuclear powered rockets in space...they're illegal
The biggest thing which makes me love Space Operas are the legions of spaceships. Nothing would bring me greater joy than to be able to pilot a single cruiser amid battleships, skimmers, destroyers, capital ships, all manner of insane special weapons, knowing that there are millions of my comrades in all of those ships around me, ready to fight alongside me in the case of an enemy attack, and knowing my ship can spray lasers or missiles or solid shells through space at opposing warships.
What about the fact that your ship will most likely get mowed down?
Well at least we tried. And that just means greater pride if we come back home after a massive battle.
You better be one of the main characters or else you'll lose thousands of comrades.
Nah, I'm the main character's annoying but cheerful friend aboard another ship. Meaning I have about a 50% survival rate. Either I'm the guy who slips past all the bloodshed, or I'm the guy who has a tragic sombering deth.
>annoying but cheerful
Those always live, it's the likeable and cheerful ones that die to fuel the story.
Why is she crying in the context of the manga?
Did she walk in on her boyfriend cheating on her?
Ah, so that means I'll survive. At worst, serious injuries but I still get to say horrible puns as I'm being carted off.
Being one of the dozens of ships getting wrecked in the background as the main characters surge forward is the greatest honor of all
