New Anime for Ginga Eiyuu Dentsetsu Announced

kirchieisLegend of the Galactic Heroes (a.k.a. Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu) , this classic sci-fi anime my dear Scythe reviewed just a few weeks ago, will be getting a completely new adaptation! This was announced at the very end of the last stage play based on the original story by Yoshiki Tanaka. See details below!

The announcement was confirmed by Hirofumi Adachi, the secretary of the famous author. Additional comments included information that cleared-out all suspicions, naming the upcoming anime to be NOT a remake of the old series, but an entirely different take on the novels with new designs, music, cast and staff.

Here is how the story goes: “In the 36th century’s reality, where people are freely travelling in space and inhabit new planets within The Milky Way, there is a great war between the two main powers – the Galactic Empire and the Free Planets Alliance that has been going on for 150 years. With two new geniuses born on each side, would this endless fight end? After so many centuries, is humanity finally getting close to peace and which regime would bring it to them The Empire’s autocracy or The Alliance’s democracy?”

The original series were an OVA of 110 episodes with additional movie takes.

It is a perfectly good anime as it is. Do we need to sugar-coat everything, so the little moe lovers could watch it?! Maybe it’s simply not meant for them. Completely needless intervention.


They’re taking on an epic…


I am stunned. If they ruin it, there will be blood.


We;ll chew their heads off :D


I am too excited about this – one of the very few anime that made me envy, cry, laugh… Please don’t ruin it…


Same here. I kept staring at the screen for a while…Silly, eh? :D


OMG! I cried too much as well…even though people watch it for the spaceships and battles :D
