mittermeyer (sorry if I misspelled that) said that Yang was second only to Reinhard, but hasn't Yang beaten Reinhard even with inferior numbers? i'm fairly sure that the actual logistics and tactics are bullshit but not 100% pls confirm or disprove, also it seems there's allot of respect between the opposing forces, if I'm spouting bullshit call me on it, other than that discuss
even if mittermeyer actually thought Yang > Reinhardt, he would never mention it. him saying Yang is second to Reinhardt is a compliment because he's putting him above every admiral in the Empire, but he would never admit that Yang or even think Yang is better than R.
The other guy has the right idea, but also consider the fact that the whole point of Reinhardt is that he was never alone. Yang almost always had to rely on himself because his country failed him, but Reinhardt WAS the state, so he had a dozen of the greatest admirals in the galaxy to lean on. Reinhardt was a leader of men, Yang was a commander of ships.
Yang was definitely smarter than Reinhardt, but what did that ever count for?
Look at your own port OP. It says it all. Yang is above all, but ReinTURD looks grandest.
That's a good way to put it.
It's such a shame. Yang should've been born an artist or an inventor or something. He never should've had to "live by the sword."
Imagine if Yang had been born 40 years later than Reinhardt. How the galaxy would have changed.
He would have been a historian.
Your image is a joke, but you know you are factually right. I can't remember what he actually said, but if he didn't say outright "I would've been a historian," it was at least alluded to. I mean, he studied history in college right?
Guy's motivate me to finish logh. I've finished the first two 'seasons', I hear a lot of people say logh doesn't get good till season two but I much preferred season one to be honest I found the later half of season two quite boring. Is the rest of logh more like season one or two.
He studied history in a military college because when his father died he left him no money. It's free to join the military and be educated there, and the history division allowed him to pick up a non-combat role as a military historian. Which he wanted.
But due to budget cuts the history division was shut down, and Yang was forced to take a more conventional military role. Jessica Edwards had protested against this, if I remember. With the help of Yang and Lap.
And he was shot into fame when he became the hero of El Facil.
So tl;dr, yes Yang wanted to be a historian.
The second half of LoGH is the best half. Probably closer to one as more important things start happening (and more characters die).
From the wiki:
"At the age of 16, Yang Tai-long reluctantly gave his son permission to study history. His father soon passed away after an accident, leaving his ship and heavily mortgaged shipping company to be repossessed by lenders, and it was discovered that his father's artwork collection consisted of entirely of fakes. Yang Wen-li was left penniless and was unable to attend Heinessen Memorial University as he had originally planned. He thus enrolled himself in a military academy in order to further his education.
Yang studied in the War History Studies Department of the Free Planets Alliance Officer Academy with the intention of becoming a historian; his tuition fees would be waived, however, on the condition that he enter into military service upon graduation. While Yang was still in school, however, the War History Studies Department was dissolved, forcing Yang to transfer to the Strategic Studies Department. As a student, Yang described himself as being always on the verge of flunking out. Although this gave him the appearance of an officer of average talent - he graduated right in the middle of the Class of 787 - his grades reflected his lack of interest rather than his academic abilities."
>Final battles of the Galactic War
>Yang fighting Reinhardt head-on
Well that's good news, I'll carry on watching it after I finish penguin drum.
I must of gotten second half and second season confused.
I wonder who graduated at the top of the class.
I think people commonly say that LoGH really starts after "season 1" when Kircheis dies, it's the first monumental moment.
But there's a very long time between Kircheis and the death of the other 60% of the cast. If you made it through the first half, make it through the second.
There'll be one point when it slows down and staggers a lot, but man. After that it picks up like a fucking Cheetah.
op here thank you for helping me understand. I've never really been able to make deductions like that, regardless of how obvious it might be
Well the space battles are very dated visually, the battle would of been more enjoyable if there was a risk of one of the main characters dying, this is why I find the battles with the lesser genrels more intreasting, I think my favourite battle so far was when the empire teleported the second space fort and tried crashing it into the one yang stole.
>The Beowulf has gone missing
I think it was this very battle where this happened, Vermillion iirc?
My heart was in my throat, and then Mueller arrives on the scene.
Wideborn or Lap maybe I don´t remember.
Except mayor and minor characters alike die over the course of the series. Having low tier admirals fighting really doesn't mean characters are more prone to die.
Is it just me, or is the ending too underwhelming?
