>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
>>
>>100874831
this

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.
>>
>>100874941
>LOGH
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.
>>
>>100875367
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.

just finished logh.
was not ready for those reuenthal feels

need another space opera to drown out the sorrow
>>
>>100875422
agreed. Star Trek is the last hard ish sci fi that is stillish popular.
>>
>>100875451
Star Citizen?
>>100875451
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.
>>
>>100875451
Star Citizen?

f space tourism

I'd be investing in asteroid mining.

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?
>>
>>100876595
agreed 100%

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.

>>
>>100877043
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.

Starwars isn't a space opera no matter how much it wants to be.
>>
>>100876117
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.
>>
>>100877878
What about the fact that your ship will most likely get mowed down?
>>
>>100877913
Well at least we tried. And that just means greater pride if we come back home after a massive battle.
>>
>>100877878
You better be one of the main characters or else you'll lose thousands of comrades.
>>
>>100878044
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.
>>
>>100878118
>annoying but cheerful
Those always live, it's the likeable and cheerful ones that die to fuel the story.
>>
>>100874788
Why is she crying in the context of the manga?
Did she walk in on her boyfriend cheating on her?
>>
>>100878181
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.
>>
>>100877913
Being one of the dozens of ships getting wrecked in the background as the main characters surge forward is the greatest honor of all
