    Legend of the Galactic Heroes

    Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu, or Legend of the Galactic Heroes, is an OVA that began airing in the late 80s and ran into the late 90s based on an earlier manga that ran for roughly the period. During its course it spawned two seperate movies and two OVAs.



    Legend of the Galactic Heroes is part of the Space-Opera genre and its plot focuses on the military rivalry and politcal machinations the of Galactic Empire's Reinhardt von Lohengram and his rival, the Free Planet's Alliance own great captain Yang Wen-li and the movements they put forth into action.

    The series spans 110 episodes; features a soundtrack composed of classical music and impressive opening and outro themes, an impressive cast of characters (many others are clone-like), and demonstrates the history of a galaxy at war by following the motivations, actions and consequences of the people who inhabit this fictional universe.

    Why should you watch it?

    Battles in space set to great music, intrigue and romance, mystery and crisis. The characters are well designed and as a result of a long run time it is possible for the plot and characters to develop backgrounds and histories that grow in such a way that while sometimes are not entirely reasonable or significant, are enjoyable to watch.

    If you care to watch the OVAs and movie, which pale in comparison to the main course, my recommendation is to watch a few episodes of the main series, then dig into the movies and prequels. It provides a little bit of context, lore, and more Kircheis and Reinhardt.

    I think the Free planets Alliance was superior to the Galactic Reich because although it was burdened with its own political inefficiencies it did retain a democratic governance, which properly operated, is the best governance.
