2 episodes and this guy is the best girl.
The blonde fag is a unlikeable mary sue,
but that's just the 2nd best girl
>The blonde fag is a unlikeable mary sue,
I agree with this though
>tfw no loyal qt redhead friend
It hurts just to be alive.
Who is best girl then, Dusty, Kircheis, Mittermeier, or Bittenfeld?
I'm sorry to break it to you but Yang is the mary sue.
Doesn't make him any less best girl though
>implying Mecklinger isn't the most pure and sensitive
>implying you wouldn't like to feel his thin mustache tickling your ear while he tenderly whispers you his poetry
lol what a faggot
Reinhard would kick ass if he ever did anything for himself. 90% of the time he just delegates it to one of his subordinates.
But Mary Sues don't die. They come back to life at the producer's convenience...
>2 episodes and this guy is the best girl.
And continues being best girl for most of the series.
>not posting sensuous silky hair version
Please Anon, it's like you don't even care.
This is what all threads are going to be all about once the new anime is out, right?
There's a new one?
There is no quality or attribute to Yang that can be characterized as "sue"ish.
Seriously, if only Kircheis were here, then we wouldn't be in this predicament.
It seems that you weren't here yesterday. Just start celebrating already.
What about he fact that no matter how unfavourable the circumstances, he still manages to win almost every battle he's in?
He's good at tactics and strategy. He sucks at literally everything else.
The conviction he has about democracy and the necessary restraint to military power is a bit Mary Sueish, but at least we don't have people all magically agree with him (except those under his command)
Also, the only battle that was strategically unfavourable for Yang was Vermillion and Amlitzer (which was essentially just covering a retreat), and both were simply due to numbers. In every other battle bar Astate Yang set himself up in a strong position to deal with the Empires attack. Take the final battle of Iserlohn as a prime example. The empire could not overwhelm Yang due to the narrowness of the corridor. A similar tactic to that employed by Buccock.
There's no Mary Sue in this series and if you had to name a character with some Mary Sue traits it's Yang or Julian.
>want to start this
>it's 108 episodes
Umm, might clear my backlog first.
>The blonde fag is a likeable mary sue.
The only Mary Sues in this series were Bittenfeld and Poplan. Not even the Word of God can get those two to job.
>hasn't watched LoGH
Better get started now, faggot.
Julian for sure. He can do everything.
110 actually. Completely worth it though. One of the best shows of any media ever created in my opinion.
That's what everyone says. At that rate, you'll never finish it. It's completely worth bumping the series to the top of the list.
110. 108 is something on the complete opposite spectrum of the timeline.
It's definitely better than four individual 2-cour shows.
wasn't bittenfeld still julians bitch at the end though and lost essentially his entire fleet due to being a reckless sucktub running straight towards the death star?
All of Yang's group are a bunch of mary sues.
except you know, yang who just is super lucky till he gets killed off by terrorists.
Dusty isn't. He's pretty incompetent in general. Not to mention that Poplan can only be described as a bumbling idiot.
Remember to avoid LOGH threads until you're done the show.
or just read the spoilers and not give a shit since the show itself spoils whats gonna happen bout 5 episodes before it happens.
Also, don't watch the previews.
Yeah, it does that. Things would be much more surprising if it wasn't for the narrator spoiling fucking everything
>except those under his command
>Liking anyone from the FPA
What? Dusty was a pretty good admiral, he never fucked up neither did Poplan who never lost even at melee battles.
>ace at spess combat
>ace at hand to hand combat
>ace at shooting
>ace at tactics
>god tier luck
>bitches on his dick even if he's spaghetti
>ice cold gangsta, doesn't even care a tiny bit about killing
Meanwhile Yang was tactics god and had his share of luck, but only when it came to battles. He had 0 ability in personal combat, had to deal with having a gf dying and only got a waifu because they had a connection since relatively long ago, and never believed himself to worthy of happiness or anything because of all the people that died under or due to his command.
>tfw I had everyone's deaths spoiled for me before I even started watching
Still cried bitch tears at multiple deaths.
Isn't the director from the original series dead? Have we heard anything on staff for the upcoming project?
Or look at the laserdisk cover, Christ Japan.
Dusty dropped the ball once sometime in season 3. He underestimated Bittenfeld and Fahrenheit.
Yang is more moe.
Except a lot of the point is that Julian just stole all his tactics from Yang.
>Killing Merkatz in the final battle in exchange for your men
Nope, killing that monster is worth a fleet. An armada is easily replaceable in LOGH, a competent admiral is not. We're talking about a man that could get the better of The Gale Wolf with a bunch of shitty nobles at his command, let alone having command of an FPA fleet.
The FPA always had higher quality admirals/officers than the Empire. Bittenfeld's specialty was crushing the enemy's aces, which in long term is far more beneficial than anything the rest had done.
If Julian still had Fischer the FPA wouldn't have even needed the Rosen Ritters to board. They can simply outmaneuver and semi circle Reinhard's fleet to submission.
Here to rep my underrated boys Lutz and Müller. They did so much fucking work.
Yang is a fucking Mary Sue. He NEVER does any mistake in any episode until he dies to something outside his control.
The news said that the new project will be done with a new staff.
Damn those covers. What were they thinking?
He is the moe-est in the entire galaxy.
...and Reinhard has some major faults that get explored in detail down the series.
The only character that doesn't have any flaw to speak of is Yang.
The very definition of a Mary Sue.
But he's shit at everything else.
he had the handicap of having utter shit bosses for most of the series though so that does help out, also his sueness was locked up in the death star known as iserlohn so its not like he could just rampage about and ravage reinhards anus whenever he damn well pleased.
also theres no such thing as plot armor in LOGH, except for god damn mittermayer, holy shit he had so much god damn plot armor.
>he had the handicap of having utter shit bosses for most of the series though
That is precisely because he is a Mary Sue.
He cannot make mistakes. He has to be forced in situations outside his control.
Well he routinely fails to capitalize on his success and constantly refuses power. The FPA would still exist if he only had the balls to shoot Reinhard when he had the chance.
Plus, you know, he's shit at everything that isn't being an admiral.
Nah, a Mary Sue is perfect and good at everything. Yang is a constant fuck-up with interpersonal relationships, combat, he nearly flunked out of school, and is a miserable alcoholic. He's only good at one thing, and that's battle tactics. Which while he's great at it, part of his success was luck.
why ddidint yang kill Reinhard and ignored the order from the alliance when he had the chance?
Because muh democracy
Everything basically went as he planned the entire show.
I have come to hate democracy because it killed Yang.
He could have killed the Reinhard and committed ritual suicide.
because he didint want to start a civil war and be remembered by history for it.
The fact that he died due to complacency eliminates all possibility of him being a Mary Sue.
Because he's hooked on a feeling. He's high on believing.
oh i not denying hes a Sue, i'm just saying the show still managed to keep him likable despite the fact hes a sue by limiting the sheer amount of bullshit he can pull and still make him an interesting character either way,
also reinhard is probably just as bad of a sue and the only reason why people write him off from being one is because he had to nuke that one planet for propaganda shenanigans.
Because in Yangs mind the army should be fundementally the tool of the government.
How can a 30-year-old man be so cute?
How did Mittermeyer have plot armor? The guy rarely got in dangerous situations compared to everyone else.
Also because Heinessen would have been nuked if he ignored them. Probably. He might have been able to play it off as the communique getting there late, but there's a good chance that Reunthal would have glassed the planet out of spite.
>trips literally every death flag ever made
>from time to time would literally get into battles where he looks like hes about to get wrecked but isn't for some odd reason
>the scene where its reported he actually died but didn't
seriously, guy has thicker plot armor then pretty much everyone else in LOGH combined.
>trips literally every death flag ever made
And? Actually obeying death flags is shit tier writing.
>from time to time would literally get into battles where he looks like hes about to get wrecked but isn't for some odd reason
I can't remember any instances of this, but I'm willing to let it slide.
>the scene where its reported he actually died but didn't
This has absolutely nothing to do with plot armor. If we saw his ship get rekt, and many characters proclaim at that instant that he was kill then it'd be another matter, but that's not how it went.
I actually thought this was a death flag the first time I saw it. Actually, when he said his goodbye to his wife before the final battle, I thought that was it for Mittermeyer.
Yang's biggest flaw was that he lacked ambition. He was content to be a subordinate and avoided responsibility, even when it was obvious that taking on a larger leadership role or pushing his ideas harder would be best for his faction.
Further, 'not making any mistakes' is not enough to qualify someone as a Mary Sue in the first place.
Not to mention there was a large component of luck in a lot of his victories.
Well, considering everyone who said goodbye to his wife died...
He dies in the end of the third season. The blond dies on the last episodes. The readhead dies on the end of S1.
I don't know why I found this sequence so funny.
The ones where guys were trying to scoop the innards back in freaked me out
>Super goody two shoes
>Has an innocent waifu
>ALWAYS jobs to anyone worth a damn
>Special Ability: GOIN FAST
I'm sorry I don't see it. Mittermeyer dying would have been the equivalent of like, Chad dying in Bleach or Sakura dying in Naruto. It just...can't happen.
I mean he even has the best excuse in the series. HE GOES REAL FAST.
>OH SHIT MERKATZ RAPED ME WITH XWINGS
>GOIN FAST RETREAT
>OH SHIT BUCOCK KEIKAKU DOORI'D ME
>GOIN FAST RETREAT
>OH SHIT YANG'S MOE
>GOIN FAST RETREAT
>OH SHIT REUENTAL IS GONNA RAPE ME
>OH HEY BITTENFELD IS LETTING ME EAT BREAKFAST FIRST
>OH LOOK MY OPPONENT SUCKS DICK
>GOIN FAST YOU GONGITRAPED
That's exactly why he would live. If he were overly competent like Kircheis the plot would demand he dies for fear of overshadowing Reinhard, but Mittermeyer was only above Dusty level at most.
I remember that scene. That was metal as fuck.
Enjoy when it's heavily edited/censored/completely cut out of the 2014/15 version.
Or the guy crawling without legs.
Shimakaze, is that you?
There's a 2014 version?!
And yet he wasn't fast enough to say goodbye to Reuenthal.
Shit, it wasn't just missing legs, that guy didn't have any hips either.
You're right it's true. I just re-watched that episode on youtube recently and by the time Bittenfeld's Fahrenheit division gets murdered by Reuental the mute guy already made his way to the battlefield.
Mittermeyer basically just had to hold out until Bitten came along and it was smooth sailing except scrubby Bayerlein.
>There are people who prefer Yang wenli to his Excellency
People like you are the reason the world is like this today
Hit me with your gayest shot
I had half the deaths spoiled on me and still cried bitch tears. They were all so fucking manly. Especially Buccocks death. Goddamn
He also messed up with the whole let's blow up some of our scarce and much needed transport ships, just before we have to evacuate the entirety of Iserlohn just to score some easy kills. Though Yang did later use a similar tactic with superior execution to destroy one of Reinhard's admirals.
And Yang stole most of his tactics from his military history films.
There was a sticky for it yesterday
He may as well been his wife is small enough to look the part
He was having breakfast dude, lay off.
I just finished reading the manga Historie.
It really reminded me of LotGH in the way it deals with character presentation and battles.
But Historie hasn't even remotely gotten close to ending yet. There's a higher chance of Berserk/Vagabond/Vinland/HxH finishing before Historie does.
You....you get over here and give me a high-five you magnificent bastard.
holy shit, I do not ever remember Kircheis looking that angry
Why didn't they use nukes in space combat?
Why didn't Yang put some engines on Iserlohn and used it as a Death Star of democracy?
How can Reinhard be a Mary Sue when he fucked up so hard he killed the actual Mary Sue, Kircheis?
The guy screws up every arc.
I meant, I caught up.
Oh, good shit then. You're fucked now though, because it takes 2 months minimum for a chapter of mostly white space and simple drawings to come out.
They did, just very rarely because the engagement distances were measured in light-seconds. Missiles were hilariously slow compared to that.
The only reason the Empire was able to was because of their superior technology.
Holy fucking shit.
How can Frodo post two different things at the same time?
Everyone forgot how to build nukes thousands of years in the future, also lasers travel much faster and don't get shot down by other lasers
Because the outside was made of liquid frod how would you put engines on it
>Implying Yang represented democracy
this rebel right here
YANG WAS A COMMIE SCUM
I'll see you in 20 years
Did you not watch the series?
They're going to make a new one, we don't know when.
>FPA says fuck you to the nuke treaty
>Arms Poplan's shoebox with nukes
>LOGH ends the episode Poplan debuts
Welp, I guess we now know how LOGH can fit in a single cour.
Would he have been a good dad, /a/?
As I hit the submit button, I remembered that Oberstein allowed that farm planet to be nuked
The second point stands, slow missiles would be shit in space battles where everyone is super far away from each other and nukes could easily be intercepted by laser cannons
That's not very Yang-like.
He would let the Empire capture it, install engines, lure them when he needs it AND then recapture it for the tenth time.
VOTE PHEZZAN, GOYS.
No, I mean the engines thing, they did it with the other fortress.
You realize those missiles could be armed on the fucking jet fighters right? Even the unskilled Empire valkyrie pilots could just kamikaze bomb the enemy.
If you count turning out a mini-Reunthal a good result, then sure. I thought that there was going to be a few decades of peace, though. What would mini-Reunthal do?
I imagine the dvd boxset doesn't have english subtitles, does it?
rubinsky plz go, and take the jews with you.
Ok gonna start. Subs or dubs?
>not voting phezzan
Why do you hate the free market so much
Geiersburg Fortress wasn't fully covered in liquid though.
>I thought that there was going to be a few decades of peace,
Not happening, Julian basically said in the last ep that he wasn't tired of killing yet after ripping and tearing through the last Earth Cultists.
I think that nigga became a Khorne servant at some point without making others realize it.
Isn't it obvious? He dies for mini-Kaiser protecting him from a bazooka laser.
I don't think that's possible though. Look at his current staff after the last episode.
>Poplan retired to Phezzan
>Katerina is probably preggo
>Frederica is still mourning Yang and being useless
He's got a SHIT deal if he wants to play world of warcraft.
Fuck those terraists though. Screwing shit up they were.
Mecklinger is olev
And that's when he travels to the next galaxy and forms an ALIEN ALLIANCE!
Katerose and Julian hadn't fuged yet when the series ended.
>the blonde fag is a unlikeable mary sue
Confirmed for having a shit taste and not knowing what a mary sue is.
Just because someone is intelligent and competent, it doesn't have to mean that he's a mary sue.
All the shit Reinhard and Kircheis did wasn't based on luck.
Someone post that homolust chart.
And what else would Julian and Kat do after Reinhard dies? Go straight to war just the two of them?
>>>/biz/ rubinsky pls
Nah wouldn't work, Mecklinger is LOGH #1 cultural guy, so Empire wins over the aliens with ease.
No it was based on privilege mostly. Merkatz was probably a better pick for High Admiral long before Reinhard even became eligible. Reuenthal was probably a better pick for Admiral long before Reinhard even became eligible for the postion.
>We never got to see that super starship or whatever it was the Empire was planning to build towards the end.
/a/ Do you think love can bloom even on a battlefield?
It might, LOGH implied that Kircheis' flower bloomed a few times in Reinhard's fabulous boypussy.
Yang's spaghetti, best spaghetti.
>talking about moe LoGH characters
>not one mention of Eisenach
Was smiling from ear to ear when this part came up. Pretty much any time some sort of romance started working it's way into the episode, with anyone. It doesn't matter who it is, I swear you come to enjoy watching every person in this show.
You're the faggot Raian, we're being respectful and using sign language and finger snaps.
My shitty attempt at a gif. The colors seem off and I don't know how to fix that.
This. How dare you TALK about him, as in using words.
Proposals were heartwarming as fuck.
Especially the Mittermeyer's one.
JEEG KAISA RAINHAADO
JEEG NOYA RAIHEE
This has to be the biggest death flag in the history of the galaxy.
also Eisanach is a family husbando, Mittermeyer said it in some of the 4 season chapters
Not when the guy is impotent it's not.
He was perfect for dying in the end.
I don't know what saved him.
Maybe the writer's good will.
>loving wife, adopted kid
>2 days until retirement
It would be perfectly tragic.
it sounds cliche
It would be forced drama. A good writer avoids that.
Mittermeyer is so perfect.
His death would serve no purpose at that point.
That's not to say there weren't times where a death flag didn't appear over his head, but every time it did someone else was already in front of him.
And Oberstein dying for Reinhard instead of Mittermeyer fit far more.
What was Reinhard going to say at the end there?
When we conquer the universe we will be Eggscellent
..we'll live in peace?
because it was at the most tactical superior location for the fortress to be at. You could only approach it from 2 directions IN FUCKING SPACE and it could clear any fucking direction
it was literally at the best place in the universe for it only an idiot would move it
It's the wife, not husband, that was impotent if I recall.
Recommend me a similar show. I liked this show.
Not anime, but the newest or the older Romance of the Three Kingdoms TV adaptations. Actually wait, I think there was also an anime of it.
There's 80s anime, but it has little under 50 episodes because it was cancelled (The 2010 movie series IS good though, I also recommend it). There is also series like Gundam, Dougram, and etc... but it's not really gonna give the same impact. Hyouge Mono is also pretty great adaption of Sengoku era, but it's also short of LotGH. There's not really alot of series, but I suppose I myself can look around and jog my memory.
Rose of Versailles.
I'd also recommend Hyouge Mono, I wouldn't say it falls short but indeed it's not the same thing as LoGH at all. It treats very different subjects than LoGH. Still good even if only for muh politics and muh history though, and all the faces of course.
Didn't see Dougram yet but Gundam falls hilariously flat in terms of warfare and its impact on people compared to LoGH.
Yeah, that's the issue. Dougram is basically very similar to UC79 and 8th MS Team, but more polished with more focus on how infantry and non-robot units are just as if not more important in war. Obviously same director.
So basically there is no anime like LOGH
Yeah. Nothing else exactly like it.
Pretty much, more or less, it was one of those rare things that was attempted and I want to say "saw" success", but I don't know since LotGH already had popularity before its adaption.
>Obviously same director.
With what? 08th MS Team, first Gundam and Dougram are all by different people.
But after LOGH you could as well look into the classics of other genres like >>102041239 or Isao Takahata's works to avoid comparison for a while.
>taste the ambrosia
>everything else is now ashes in my mouth
Looks like I made a mistake. I could've sworn: Gundam, Ideon, Dougram, and 8th MS Team were by same person. I just checked and seems I was mistaken. Thanks anon.
It's really a case of there being nothing like LoGH in content instead of quality though.
Sheeit man, it's Tomino we're talking about.
Can someone link me to where I can get the full series in subs?
There's loads of stuff as good as LoGH. There's just nothing that does the same thing it does as well.
Julian was a prodigy, Yang's foster son, and spent time being mentored by the likes of Poplan, Dusty, Schenkopp, and Mashingo in different combat tactics and roles.
He's not any more of a Sue then Kircheis was.
who is the most pitiable logh?
>there are people who are only watching LoGH because of the sticky
Bruno von Silberberch, one of the unsung heroes of LotGH.
Oberstein's dog, best dog
>Doesn't name any of these "as good" series
With the announcement of new LOGH, why doesn't somebody set-up a stream with 3-4 episodes every night just to catch back up and enjoy with other anons?
I would do this, alas, I don't have the time nor patience.
Have you tried reading this thread?
you could die tomorrow.
don't leave it to chance and finish LoGH SOON
>Smashing their grails after drinking from them once
Wow, Reinhard's groupies sure are wasteful.
it's funny because he mocks his superiors for doing the same thing in gaiden
Reinhard just hates the shit out of glasses. They tend to have a short lifespan around him.
Isn't it a thing? Whenever you have some kind of solemn oath taken at a ceremony you drink and smash the glasses or someshit?
I know tradition exists for safe ship sailing and weddings, not sure for other purposes. Anyone expert on this?
For those of you looking to get into LoGH, this is the best playlist out there:
With a new ship, you smash the champagne bottle against the side.
I thought that the first night you spend in your new house, you smash the champagne glasses in the fireplace.
Its from one of the OVAS where a civilian is about to be raped by some soldiers.
Silver White Valley, to be specific
wow are there any other great anime like galactic heroes?
please do not troll me with boku no fucko.
boku no fucko.
He will not die because of cancer that he got in the space if he is a mary sue
Some weeks ago a kind anon stream the first episodes and promise to stream the next 5, but never delivered
Which LoGH would you ask to be your Valentines?
Legend of the Blue Wolves
Its like LOTGH+robots
Who is this mystery opera Anon? Why doesn't he do more OPs?
Face it, the ONLY reason Yang ever wins anything is because of bullshit plot armor. Imperial troops were far better than the ragtag shitheads the FPA got together for Yang at the last minute and on top of that they were always low on supplies, didn't sleep, lacked any kind of cohesion, shit morale, numbers, and pretty much everything else, but somehow still managed to easily beat Reinhard with HURR SEMICIRCLES AND YANG IS MAGIC.
There actually aren't way too many semicircles in logh.
Yes the last RoTK adaptation is quite good, 95 episodes (so almost twice as long as LoGH since each episode is 40min long) of warfare, politics, poetry and tricks. The show has really good characters (Cao Cao being the best).
Sometimes it is exagerated and many many battles, deaths, characters are omitted.
But still it remains a good introduction to Romance of the Three Kingdoms.
saved. even if it's from tumblr.
Is Space Battleship Yamato similar? Anybody? Thinking of checking that out next.
It is said that Yang's fleet manages to beat the Empire's fleet mostly with good tactics and quick maneuvers. It's thanks to Rear Admiral Fisher who was renowned for his ability to execute fleet manoeuvres perfectly.
As soon as this guy dies, their fleet greatly weakens.
Moreover even though they were tired, Yang's troop is composed by a core of veteran soldiers who basically followed him since the 1st time he got a fleet.
That's why I don't think that Alliance soldiers are only a bunch of shitheads.
Damn you know I always half-hated and also felt sorta bad for Oberstein all throughout, but then at the end they pull that shit out and I realize his dog at home was probably his only real friend. Damn fuck I was most sad about that. The only one that appreciated his efforts.
Which should I watch first spiral labyrinth or the main series?
Is it just more or did they make the scenes with Yang in them have more budget?
Who cares about the shitty remaster?
I would devote all my budget to the FPA as well.
>or just read the spoilers and not give a shit since the show itself spoils whats gonna happen bout 5 episodes before it happens.
I wanted to strangle that fucking narrator.
Main series. It's much better, and the gaidens require context. They're meant as "more stories about those characters you like!" None of them quite measure up, except maybe Hundred Billion Stars, Hundred Billion Lights, but they're nice additions.
So main series. Hands down. The only thing you should watch before that is the two movies.
It's a function of the remaster. Personally I like the remaster, but some people find it jarring and distracting.
>not wanting to make sweet love to his voice
I swear, the only way I'll be happy with an English dub will be having Morgan Freeman or someone do the narration.
>Bruno von Silberberch, one of the unsung heroes of LotGH.
This. I thought he would be one of the main characters when the show introduced him.
>caring about spoilers
You guys just need to let go and fiction will be so much more enjoyable. The journey is the destination.
He would've been a great Reich Prime Minister. He's so good that his subordinate try to retire because he feel useless.
Man, he had some kickass lines, too. He was built up and everything. You remembered his ass, even though he showed up so little.
>Pretty much, more or less, it was one of those rare things that was attempted and I want to say "saw" success", but I don't know since LotGH already had popularity before its adaption.
I imagine it was because someone REALLY wanted to make a LoGH adaptation. It was released on fucking Laserdisc over the course of a decade.
The new anime is going to recast all the characters as high school cadets in an all girls military academy.
I was so mad with the way they killed him off
>Julian is the main character from episode 1
I don't know why exactly yet, but I have a feeling the new adaptation is going to be an utter abomination that's going to cut out 90% of the original material.
How does everyone keep so calm during battle?
They're far behind the front.
Because most people who lose their calm die early on, see most of the old Empire's admirals.
Experience, confidence, and certain sense of fatalism
The latter two reasons also explain the general lack of bodyguards around important figures
Eventually Reinhard picked up a cadre of bodyguards, though. Not that it helped him much.
That's the bare minimum though, he only did it because he was force to by Oberstein.
just started this and i have to ask, Was Denyuuden trying to parallel this series or am i just reading too much into it based on their names? I can't help but feel like
We don't even know how many new episodes the new anime will be, right?
I don't think we anything aside from the fact it's in the works.
there were quite a few characters with great designs who didn't do anything or were used as backgrounds characters. I suspect all the cool looking admirals were just too old to participate in reinhard's shenanigans, especially few of them recognized he had talent early on and didn't take any sides in noble's rebellion.
Well shit, I guess LoGH will become common soon.
Those old admirals are the one that hold the Empire together, if only we get to see them in action, I want to see what kind of speciality >>102068059 have
I'd actually love to just have a series of documentaries instead of a remake. So just have the narrator analyzing the war between the Empire and Alliance, their causes & effects, comparisons of their army and command structure, and so on and so on.
I know it's just a wishful fantasy but still...
Kinda like the History of Earth episode?
Exactly like that episode. Oh god, I loved the fuck outta that episode.
Reunthal x Mittermeyer is the best OTP
>only one except Rudolf and Reinhard to wear golden epaulets
Klasen was a baller.
>implying bishie Fahrenheit isn't the best
The guy is in his 20s he's not meant to look like a thousand years old
remastered shots had some questionable direction that changes from scene to scene and sometime outright redesigns characters.
So it has flaws up the ass, yet we should just accept your unsupported opinion that it's good?
Hope you never try working as a marketer.
That could be fun, I'm curious about the equipment and ship specifications on both the FPA and the Empire so an info dump on that would be brilliant. Espically for the ground forces, we only saw the security garrison and the navy soldiers afterall.
Nobody said Reinhard wasn't a hypocritical faggot.
He was just more competent than most of his kind.
To be honest everyone in the DVD looks fairly alike
>Yang told to take the linchpin of Imperial dominance with a ragtag fleet made of the remnants of the last battle; it's not a suicide mission to punish him for acting against the top brass, it's a genuine plan
>2 children break into a high ranking nobleman's house during a ball and open fire, they escape by running a few metres. This comes days after one of them nearly murders a child. There are no repercussions from either event.
I'm 4 episodes in and not seeing why this is 10/10 so far. There seems to be a lot of lazy writing and sloppy conveniences even this early in.
It could be set like 300 years after the anime and the historians could be puzzled and theorize over why certain characters acted the way did (but we the audience would know) because the primary sources and documents of the time have been lost over the years. Just imagine historians arguing whether or not Reuenthal was in the wrong for his rebellion and offering radically different perspectives on him.
>I'd actually love to just have a series of documentaries instead of a remake. So just have the narrator analyzing the war between the Empire and Alliance, their causes & effects, comparisons of their army and command structure, and so on and so on.
It's not a remake, it's a re-adaptation. Which is exactly what makes me worried about this.
Schenkopp is the best character in this whole damn series
What a champ
>Yang wins due to plot armor
>Yang has Rosen Ritters for unmatched melee
>Yang has Poplan for unmatched dog fighting
>Yang has Fischer for unmatched maneuverability EAT SHIT GOIN FAST WOLF
>Yang later has Merkatz Lord of X-Wings
>Yang has Iserlohn over half the series
>Yang has Oberstein who got Kircheis killed and ruined Reinhard's innocence and idealism
>Reinhard has Kircheis for one season, who made a total of two mistakes before he died (death being one of them)
>Reinhard has Bittenfeld who slowly kills off every valuable asset of Yang but was constantly poisoned by Oberstein
>Reinhard has a bunch of jobbers and meta admirals like Eisenach/Mecklinger/Kessler who already knew shit was going down when they saw Poplan's shoebox score more kills than half their fleet did so they opted to stay in the background
>Reinhard has Andrew Fork the MVP but he couldn't utilize him properly and failed to kill Yang
Is it any wonder Yang won the majority of their encounters?
But Reinhard has the twin stars
>Hox wanting documentaries about a fictional and non-sensible universe
Why am I not surprised? It's like some 30 year old who wants katanas in every single action series.
>But Mary Sues don't die.
Didn't the original Mary Sue die in the same episode where she was introduced?
Wait, not episode. It was a short story.
Now that would be pretty cool, the OVAs already have a lot of those "but future historian" dialogue from the narrator, so it would be great to see it attach into an actual documentary thing. It would be even better if the one narrating the the OVA is shown as the expert historian in the documentary.
And since it's 300 years after, we'll learn about what happen to each characters after the OVA end.
>the gaiden OVA's aren't cannon
But I agree, with LoGH's huge focus on history something like that could easily serve to bring everything back around in a satisfactory manner.
By OVAs I mean the 100+ episodes one. I didn't even think about the gaiden since those all happen before the main OVA.
Just imagine, an entire episode about a Bestenfeld-fanboy historian going on about how he was easily the most brilliant admiral the Empire actually had.
It's considered 10/10 because
>The pros outweigh the cons
>The bad writing can be attributed to when the show was made, the 1980s where everything was written just as horribly if not worse
>Nostalgia and people's unwillingness to accept that LOGH would fail to meet most of 2014 standards of good writing
The nostalgia is a big one. Newfags or casuals will not agree LOGH is 10/10 because they are not looking at it through rose tinted goggles.
What would you think the historians completely fuck up about the events in LoGH 300 years afterwards?
>The nostalgia is a big one.
Not really. If anything, it's a case of there being nothing else like it, before or since.
>Oberstein was an avid lover of cats
Jesus christ, how horrifying.
>Newfags or casuals will not agree LOGH is 10/10 because they are not looking at it through rose tinted goggles.
Back when I finished my first viewing 2 years ago I distinctly remember taking a walk, and then immediately making a thread on /m/ about how the show is 10/10 and asked why no one makes threads about it.
People do that with shows like Toradora and Kokoro Connect though.
Just because you liked it a lot, it doesn't make the writing amazing or the show itself objectively amazing. LoGH really does have a shitton wrong with it, despite how good it is. The constant 10/10 shouts are misguided.
Let's look at the All-Stars of the FPA
>Honorable Mention Dusty
Now tell me, which of these has the twins stars one upped on their own?
>Bucock was gang banged and Bittenfeld was the only reason his fleet could no longer hold out in the first place
>Yang/Fischer/Merkatz toyed with the Twin Stars all day every day
>Reuental managed to 1v1 Schenkopp but still allow Rosen Ritter to land on his ship and fuck his crew up hard
>Nobody can counter Poplan period
>Reuental ultimately gets owned by Oberstein's machinations even if unintended
>Best accomplishment: Scaring Dusty or something
Also reminder that the reason the Twin Stars even gained Fleet Admiralty was 100% because of Hilda, and that any 2 admirals could have taken their place had they been in their shoes.
Twin Stars are overrated shits who probably couldn't kill Dusty if they had equal fire power and talent, and Dusty is the jobber of the FPA All-stars.
I watched it last year and it was amazing.
>People like it because nostalgia
>Nuh-uh, I remember calling it 10/10 after immediately after viewing it
>W-well, just because YOU liked it doesn't mean it isn't shit!
What if each episode is s a table discussion/debate with various expert historians from all side. Bittenfeld historian against Fahrenheit historian.
What, but he's pure Empire.
I never claimed people liked it for nostalgia.
I said that your subjective opinion on the show doesn't change the objective quality of the writing.
And apparently you are the only one fit to correctly judge the objective quality of the show? Then would you mind explaining the 10/10 shows that you are comparing LoGH to?
If it's flawed at the very start, it cannot be perfect.
That wasn't a flaw, that was the opinion of a guy who isn't even 5 episodes onto a 100+ episode series.
He's the best admiral because of his results, not because he was brilliant. Don't exaggerate.
A proper documentary would go something like
>Bittenfeld was a man in the right place at the right time with the right mind set
>Everyone played mind games over Rock Paper Scissors
>The meta at the time was constantly switching between Paper and Scissors
>Bittenfeld always played Rock which everyone deemed outdated and stupid
>Everyone kept trying to trick him but somehow ends up over thinking and using Scissors
>Others who tried using Paper were those who only had 2 fingers on their hands and could only use Scissors anyways as a make shift Paper (Reuental/Bucock and their shitty gimped fleets)
>Reinhard being a man of pride wanted to compete with Yang over Paper and Scissors, largely ignoring the power of Bitten's Rock
>Sadly, Bitten was also largely clueless of the power of his Rock as he doesn't even realize how many MVPs of the FPA he killed
Those two things he said still happened though.
Newfags on LOGH are not newfags to anime. You're here discussing this, that already exempts you because you use your brain.
It doesn't have flaws up the ass though, it's just not a total retelling of the book. It also retells some events in a completely different manner, according to the director's interpretation of certain characters. Honestly it's worth watching just for Cao Cao, he's constantly brilliant from his first scene to his last.
It was the most expensive TV production in China, but still the budget wasn't enough, as the director says. If you want to read the whole story but not in book format because you're murrikan, then your best bet is to read mango like Yokoyama Mitsuteru's Sangokushi (which AFAIK is very loyal to the source material), or Ravages of Time for a completely different interpretation of everything but the general story.
If the Earth Cult made sense then it would be a 10/10
And yet they are not objective facts, they are opinions. Say he wasn't paying close attention during certain parts and it made a lot more sense than he lead on.
Andrew Fork was pure FPA. What's your point? Both fucked over their own side harder than they contributed. It's not even remotely disputable.
>Choosing between Mary Sue Kircheis and Oberstein who can't even keep proper tabs on faggots he hires like Lang
No, they are objective facts. The two things he mentioned are explicit things that happened in the show, he didn't offer his opinion on either of them.
>the 1980s where everything was written just as horribly if not worse
>most of 2014 standards of good writing
Holy fuck what? The writing was different, but not worse. Are you underage or something?
>Both fucked over their own side harder than they contributed
Are you retarded? Without Oberstein, Reinhard would have gotten rekt. He was the single most important person in the Imperial side after Reinhard himself.
Without Fork, the FPA would not have gotten rekt.
He probably thinks nisioisin is the pinnacle of writing, don't even bother.
The reason behind the Earth Cult trying to aggressively expand throughout the galaxy was because the bishops were interested in money and power through manipulating people under a religious context.
Essentially they were Scientologists
Terraists make sense in that they're all butthurt over religion losing it's importance and now want it back, but that doesn't prevent their agenda from feeling stupid and tacked on.
At first I thought they were Zionists then they became Scientologists
They were buttmad because the Earth Empire was long dead and they wanted to bring it back.
>Without Fork, the FPA would not have gotten rekt.
I doubt it. FPA was corrupt and inefficient as fuck. Even before Fork does his thing Yang was already fighting with one hand tied behind his back because GUBERNMENT officials were afraid of losing their seats so they put a tight leash on him.
Who says the original novel wasn't flawed up the ass either? You're assuming I'm American and I've never read the novel and don't know what I'm talking about.
Even Hox has to admit how it's stupid that 99% of the scenes in the novel do not give a shit about crossbows which were invented over 400 years ago and were the #1 reason Qin shat on everyone.
Stuff like Huang Gai faking a betrayal and Kan Ze only backing his bluff but never making use of his knowledge of astronomy to tide over Cao Cao is just as bad as LOGH where they keep 800 fucking shoebox jet fighters on board when the ship's on the front lines with a 80% chance of getting blown to shit.
I think LoGH should have spent a couple episodes talking about religions. We literally don't know anything other than the fact that some people believe in God (unless I'm misremembering), there's a bunch of people who worship Earth and want to kill everyone else, and all the Imperials have secular ploytheistic beliefs ripped off from Nordic religions but we don't know any details.
>Oberstein single most important person after Reinhard
>Does absolutely nothing but offer shitty schemes that bite Reinhard in the ass down the line and some paper work
You'll need to step up and give some concrete evidence before you make such false claims again.
Kircheis was Reinhard 2.0. He was actually irreplaceable, both to the Empire and to Reinhard's health. Reinhard would have lived to old age if Kircheis didn't die, because he's fucking competent and doesn't allow someone to sneak a bazooka in a corpse.
An episode about religion would be nice, but other than the Terrarist, religions never factor much into the story.
nah, most people don't believe when everyone lost their faith in history when all the shit was happening and no messiah or anything showed up. terraists are the only legit faithful left and they're more of a cult now. it's unknown whether reich genuinely believes in gods or if it's just a traditional thing ripped from their founding roots.
>implying Oberstein even cared about becoming Kaiser
He was helping Reinhard the entire time and whenever he does offer help no matter how morally bankrupt it is it works.
Doesn't deny the fact that Oberstein was the cause of Kircheis' death and everything would've been better with him
>That one scene where all of Reinhard's admirals come to complain about what a emotionless douchelord Oberstein was being
>Reinhard just goes like "What the hell you're my top guys I just sorta expected you guys to have great synergy by default."
>implying people cannot incorporate past techniques into their own works
>implying new techniques do not matter
>implying I read whatever the fuck nisioisin based on your judgmental faggotry
>implying I'm underage because you immediately denounce my opinion as wrong without even attempting to understand
By your shitty logic Romeo and Juliet is still the greatest love story told. It's just DIFFERENT WRITING.
Yeah, like how black and white television made way for color and now HD. "not worse, just DIFFERENT".
Just because no one wrote a 2014 version of 1984 that fixes up the plot holes doesn't mean people doesn't have the means to do so. They just don't because it's a fruitless endeavor.
But hey keep thinking your classic shit is the best. That's what your grand parents did when you made fun of their shit taste.
Pretty sure Kircheis' death was everyone in the entire room standing around like dorks watching Kircheis wrestle with some guy until he got shot
That doesn't mean anything. Fork cost the FPA over half their fleets. Nothing short of Yang/Fischer dying both at once would have dealt as much damage to the FPA in the long term.
How the fuck does >>102070398 imply Oberstein cared about becoming Kaiser?
Are you handicapped in the head? Get the fuck out and learn to read.
pls no bully
>By your shitty logic Romeo and Juliet is still the greatest love story told. It's just DIFFERENT WRITING.
500 years gap vs 30 years gap. I swear you're retarded.
>Yeah, like how black and white television made way for color and now HD. "not worse, just DIFFERENT".
That's technological amelioration, it doesn't have anything to do with writing which cannot be analyzed with precise characteristics.
>Just because no one wrote a 2014 version of 1984 that fixes up the plot holes doesn't mean people doesn't have the means to do so.
Are you implying that people don't make plot holes anymore?
>But hey keep thinking your classic shit is the best.
Who said that? It's not good because it's old, it's good because it was good and it still is even if it's old. You're the one saying it's bad because it's old.
Uhh, my crossbow comment was directed to the Yokoyama manga, which is understandable since Yokoyama wrote it at a time when Sino-Japanese relations were hostile and it was difficult for him to get decent historical reference material. The book actually does mention it at parts, most notably when Gongsun Zan engages Wen Chou's forces, but the book is not about getting into specific details of the battle as that was never really its focus. Most fight descriptions are A engaged in 50 bouts with B and was forced to retreat when C came to reinforce. I don't care you if you hate the original book or whatever, but I'm just saying.
Also, there's some reason to believe that the elite crossbows of Han declined in the 3 kingdoms era, as the state infrastructure responsible for making the elaborate metal trigger parts were hit.
Oberstein was in charge of security at that meeting with approval of Reinhard. The incident is entirely his fault.
Don't fucking play semantics nerd, every court of law in the history of humanity would deem it Oberstein's fault.
The novel is not a documentary. The fact that it doesn't represent reality all the time is not a flaw.
Crossbows are not courageous combat, hence why they're not represented in the battles. The Heike Monogatari also makes no mention of Ashigaru at all even though everyone knows and knew about their existence and importance, because the narrative is concerned about the samurai.
You also have single combatants rek dozens and hundreds of other combatants in both stories. You also have magic. In short, historical accuracy in battles was completely irrelevent for the book, and people did not care about it. The fact that you care about it now and want it is irrelevant and doesn't make the book flawed.
If the book was presented as an accurate telling of history and events as they happened, like the recent movies Captain Phillips or Lone Surivor, then I'd agree with you.
Huang Gai faking betrayal is something that happened IRL. Kan Ze backing him up probably isn't, but in any case astronomy and magical powers are never used all the time by characters capable of using them. That's not bad writing, that's just how those things work in the frame of the book.
I have no idea why you're talking about Hox. Fuck off.
>implying humanity hasn't improved over the past 30 years than the last 500 in technology and culture
It's like you don't even realize you're posting on the FUCKING INTERNET.
Technological improvment. Can you prove there has been improvment on storytelling?
99% is not 100%. I was referring to the novel, not the manga and nothing you said really proves me wrong, simply elaborates on why it is thus.
Kan Ze backing him up without using what he was known for is bad writing. It's no different than if Cao Cao spared Zhang Liao due to his administration skills. The novel clearly doesn't make sense of most of it's fabrications even if there are more logical approaches to them. Ravages takes things too far, but at least it tries to make sense of it (still shitty writing because again, takes it too far).
I brought up Hox because he's the expert on weaponry. Not sure why you think I'm insulting him.
You mean besides the fact that everyone with an internet connection has access to literary works around the world or the fact that we are moving rapidly towards a global community sharing our knowledge and culture with each other?
>implying better technology not improving story telling
>is in /a/ in a LOGH thread
The ignorance and stupidity in you is beyond cure.
>Kan Ze backing him up without using what he was known for is bad writing.
No, it's not because skills like the one he had were never constantly used.
>Not sure why you think I'm insulting him.
I don't think anything, I'm not seeing any comments made by him about weaponry in this thread but you brought him up for no reason at all.
I think your problem is that you're too hung up on logic and can't stand anything that is not extremely rigorously logical and consistent 100%. Too bad practically no one gave a shit about that criteria through history.
Why don't you give us examples of good writing while you're at it?
You're implying that excepted a very small minority, most people use internet for anything else than porn and stupid videos.
Anyway you're not proving anything here, just giving your opinion.
>most people use internet for anything else than porn and stupid videos.
>has no proof beyond projecting one's own experience with the internet
Wow.....you actually believe this....wow. Sorry buddy, most of the world aren't virgins. We would be fucked if we were.
>only virgins watch porn
You deny an example of bad writing but fail to explain why.
You deny logic and consistency when it's the #1 complaint for all bad writing in modern day stories across all mediums.
You make claims without backing it up acting as if it's fact.
Why don't you give us an example of you not being a faggot?
Nice semantics nerd. Most people do not use the internet MOSTLY for porn, now shut the fuck up virgin.
>being this buttblasted
You're on /a/. Give up.
>make generic s4s comment
Whatever helps you sleep at night.
are you new or somethin'
>being this much of a hypocrite
Get more creative with your bait m8, this is embarrassing.
Same as you really. You keep insisting that the fact that a character did not use an ability that he does not use all the time anyway in one scene is an example of bad writing, because this is not in accordance to the modern conventions of storytelling you're used to (or rather, that you like). That's not how bad writing works.
Judging works -literary or visual or whatever- that are centuries old and were produced by a different culture by modern standards is the pinnacle of idiocy, the same as using modern day western values to judge shit that happened hundreds or thousands of years ago. You're also disregarding the fact that most works written today still are devoid of unshakable logic and consistency.
What do you want an example of? And who's "us"? No one's agreeing with you.
I challenged you to give an example of good writing as opposed to what you say is the bad writing of LoGH and RoTK, why don't you do it so that we see your criteria of good?
Visual techniques expanded as technology to accommodate them did, but while writing styles come and go, new writing isn't really better or worse than older writing.
>Sorry buddy, most of the world aren't virgins
Are you implying that only virgin people consume porn on the internet? If you do, you just confirmed you're probably a basement dweller.
Anyway, you're doing a pretty good work trying to change the subject, but you still haven't provided anything to back up your initial claim.
Fuck, the wait for information on the new anime is killing me.
admiral sideburns played a prominent role in the prequels
Yang a best.
Reuenthal a second best.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but what I interpreted from his posts is that porn is a minor venue visited by the majority of the internet as opposed to everything else it offers, such as search engines, social media, wiki/encyclopedia, etc etc.
I doubt either of you can prove who's right, but I do find it funny how you two are completely incapable of understanding each other.
Kind of fits the FPA/Empire thing.
Nah, those of us who follow these threads have long since stopped taking sides because it's pointless, we just stop posting until you guys stop so we can continue. Dadimes like you will exist even when cancer is completely cured.
Yang and Frederica best married couple even for the short time they lasted.
I was irritated by Julian till the end.
I watched it and was hooked but then when I was like 5 episodes from the end it hit me I was about to be finished and I got so sad I never finished it.
Pfff. LOGH is what geass and death note failed to be.
>I got so sad I never finished it
I can never understand this, or those people who say they got so mad/depressed by a book they dropped it a few pages from the end or somewhere in the last chapter.
What makes you think it isn't a Suicide Mission? The Politican calls the shot and Yang clearly offended Truniht. That doesn't mean Sitolet doesn't recognize Yang's talent. He's has done a lot more then just winning that last battle in the past.
Reinhard is a noble as well, but more important he's the brother of the Kaiser's favorite concubine. They won't act for something as Minor as this
>the scene where its reported he actually died but didn't
What episde was it? I was trying to find it again but no dice.
I guess i'm extremely lucky...I've started watching anime in 2012 with the yamato series and in the same year they launched the new one, in the beggining of the year i've watched logh and now they started to talk about a new one.
the only sad part is that in this 2 years i think that i've watched and read almost everything that it's worth it....i need a new hobby easy to pack for travels
71-72 I think, that or 78-81.
Thanks, it was 81.
Reuntal got hit HARD.
>Those two M
As expected of Kricheis, everything is better when he's there.
Wait wait wait, how the fuck did they keep the fucking liquid metal in 2.473 kelvin?
What? 2.473 K? Is that supposed to be how cold space is on average?
I'm not entirely sure man, but this was obviously some fictional metal. Obviously it could have also been kept heated or in a state of excitation by an electric current.
e.g. maybe this metal only becomes 'liquid' when a current is passed through it.
Too bad, Oberstein killed him too.
That's not Oberstein's fault. Blame the Terrarist.
I blame everything on Oberstein.
I believe his ending quote was supposed to be, "When we conquer the universe we will finally be together again," in reference to Annarose and Seigfried. I prefer it left open ended however, as Reinhard realized that even after seizing the power to become Kaiser, he didn't have the power to live the way he originally wanted; in peace with with sister and his best friend.
>Pfff. LOGH is what geass and death note failed to be.
Pfft. LOGH was doing something completely different from they were doing, which it certainly did well, so your statement makes little sense.
It's not really similar to LoGH, but check it out anyways. It's excellent space opera.
>Tfw my first anime was LotGH and nothing really compares to it, ever.
Whos death did you cry hardest at
It's time for a forceful breakthrough!
Oddly enough i can't say that any death really got to me.
To use a more uncommon one, pic related was pretty sad or rather his downfall from one of the FPA's most competent politicians to a nervous paranoid wreck
I watched it a couple years ago and thought it was great, just starting to dig into the gaidens now, not as great as the original so far, but still very enjoyable.
Finally, you're the first one that I heard saying that.
sadest death indeed.
Not death, but the scene of Mittermeyer having a vision ofthe afterlife and seeing all the admirals and Reinhard ascending into Valhalla.
As a comparison, it's only half the length of The Sopranos, and about the same as Breaking Bad.
What episode was that?
It kind of offends me that pretty much the entire bad guy team in this show is Aryan.
If they're gonna do that, then they should at least make the good guys all American.
>How average anon responds to Boku no Pico
There aren't any bad guys except maybe the Earth Cult or the Phezzanis.
I pretty sure the show never tells. You must have imagined it
Is Yang Wenli Chinese?
No, he's black.
You're not alone bro's ;_;
I've watched it three times, and I think I might attempt round four soon.
Goddamn it's good.
Yang is a massive self insert, you have shit taste.
>Implying I delude myself to think I am as moe as him
>Implying be such a fucking pacifist
>Implying I'd obey orders
Author's self insert is what I meant.
>>Implying be such a fucking pacifist
>>Implying I'd obey orders
You would be put down after a day on the front line.
Then it takes some sort of dedication to kill off your self insert in such a lame way
Maybe Tanaka is just a cynical masochist
All I want is a friend like Mittermeyer. Is that so much to ask for?
>mfw currently watching it for the first time and the preview spoiled Kircheis' death
Why, preview, why?
Just finished watching episode 28, this show is damn good but I can find myself watching more than one episode a day. It's not boring, but I can't quite find the accurate word to describe, I just don't enjoy marathoning it.
I was specifically referring to Yang not taking out Reinhard at Vermillion
I apologize if I was unclear
Never ever watch the previews. Or pay too much attention to the narrator
>not paying attention to narrator
>not watching preview
What are you even doing? The show expects you to regurgitate as much information as possible. I can't believe that you would gloss over such things.
>watching LOGH previews
This is literally the only thing about the show that is genuinely bad (it doesn't detract from the overall quality since there is no reason to watch them anyway).
The previews spoil basically everything that is going to happen next episode which is simply something shouldn't know or want to know.
When I say don't pay attention to the narrator, I mean to say don't try to analyze what he's saying.
If I do I'll end up drawing extreme tangents and end up deducing any major developments to happen. Instead I rather enjoy recalling the narrator said something to the effect when the actual events have passed.
I learnt my lesson in the first few episodes, they're even worse than the damned narrator.
>Not bracing yourself for the upcoming lesson
The whole idea with the show is that it is a massive historical reenactment. You ALWAYS get a look on the next page in such doc, and that's what LoGH is.
>The whole idea with the show is that it is a massive historical reenactment.
The narrator alone accomplishes this perfectly well. There is no purpose in watching the previews other than to spoil yourself.
Yes, the show is historical, but it's about history that's not real hence treating it like a traditional narrative in certain aspects is desirable.
As a comparison, I was quite ignorant of many of the historical details of the French Revolution and it made watching Rose of Versailles extremely interesting. (I know almost nothing about the Affair of the Necklace, for example.)
>Rose of Versailles extremely interesting
Extremely interesting as just a normal narrative I mean. It's an amazing show regardless.
You niggas made me look up that show.
I watched that show when I was a kid in the 90s. I didn't even know how it was called.
You watch Rose of Versailles as a kid? I never thought it was popular outside of Japan, but great taste.
Hopefully they'll release BDs for it some day.
In Europe it was fairly popular
I finished the series three months ago. I really don't know what else could possibly reach this sort of pinnacle of speculative history storytelling, characterisation and choice of music to accent the battles. It's a no-bullshit story about the nature of man told in completely neutral tones. Whenever any anime dares to venture in those waters, they always seem to come off somewhat preachy. LoGH simply tells it how it is - there is no perfect solution and there probably never will be. In every place, in every time, the deeds of men remain the same.
> I never thought it was popular outside of Japan
It was even dubbed. I remember there were some scenes with subtitles I couldn't read because I haven't even started going to school back then. I was that young..
>not being able to read before you went to school
Should have gotten better parents man.
My nigga, I used to watch it in the 90s too. The french opening was often stuck into my head as a child.
Nah man. I learned to read when I was like 5. But my skills were limited.
