Crest of the Stars

Does anybody know how popular Crest of the Stars and its sequels were/are in Japan?

Well I was really wondering if the second season (or should Seikai no Senki 2 be called a third season) is popular enough to warrant a follow up.

From what I could gather they were kind of waiting for the author to write some more novels.

As far as I know, Seikai no Senki 2 doesn't finish up the Seikai no Senki novels :/ Although Seikai no Monshou supposedly covered the first 3 novels (man, must've dropped a lot of stuff )

Well I did figure it was popular simply from the no. of sequels.

But I suppose I wanted a more tangible idea of its popularity, for e.g. its sales figures.

Zalas it may have dropped a lot of stuff from the novels but it still had the literary level of characterisation which piqued my interest.

Yeah, youre so right, I really liked the level of detail on the characters on this one. I hope it was popular enough for the makers to eventually decide on a sequel.

Crest of the Stars is very good. The first episode is kinda boring though, but it is needed to set-up the story.

Just got the last dvd, so now I have all 10 dvds,
just go buy banner of the stars, dont wait for the boxset, because theres only three dvds each for banner of teh stars I and II, waiting for crest of the stars was worth it cause there was 4 dvds, but now you should just get them, believe me its worth it.

This was one of my early favorites when I started watching anime four years ago. On a whim, I watched episode one again last night. Now I am up to episode seven. This show is irresistible: great science fiction, great adventure, great romance, great characters. Lafiel above all. I still think of Crest as a masterpiece.

Lafiel is one of Kawasumi Ayako's best voices. And Koyasu Takehito as Baron Febdash strikes the right combination of weakness, determination, and wiliness. And of course, I have always loved Captain Lexshue, both for what she does and for what she is to Lafiel. Her seiyuu, Takashima Gara (now 53 years old, 44 in Crest) has shown up this year as Gioconda in Slayers Revolution.

I see so much more this second (or is it fourth?) time around.

And the novels are fairly easy Japanese. There is also a nice compendium in three $5 volumes called the "Seikai no Monshou Filmbook" 星界の紋章フィルムブック that retells the story with pictures from the anime liberally interspersed in a simplified text.

Lol. I had to search to find a thread to resurrect. But I'm proving to myself that this is a show with great rewatch value.

No question that the second and third series were not as good as the first, Wesley84. But I enjoyed them. I'll find out in the near future if they are rewatchable, too. As I recall, there was too much space battle and too little relationship for me in Banner I. I did enjoy the OVA that came out a couple of years ago.

Finished Crest of stars and Banner of Star and about to start the second season...

From all the futuristic / spaceship series, this one is the one i liked the most. First of all the quality of the sarcastic jokes between the Abh cant be compared. Those Abh took "elegancy" to another level lol. Also the romance between Jinto and Lafei is very nice... kind of remainded me of Gundam Seed but much more elaborated. I wonder if there is some kind of marriage ceremony between the Abh or they just skip to the "mixing the genes" part... i hope to see some a bit more of love-lovey in the second season... took Lafei 2 whole seasons to accept that she cared about Jinto -.-

I'd argue that the third one is the best one among them all though, with the first season and the OVA closely following

Same here! In fact, I liked them so much I purchases the DVD sets for the first three series (the only reason I didn't pick up the fourth and last is because the OVA was never released in the US). Great stuff.

I disagree. The first series, Crest of the Stars was great, but I thought Baner of the Stars and Banner of the Stars II (the second and third series) were just as good. The only one I found a bit disappointing was the Banner of the Stars III OVA, but even that was only in comparison to how good the others were.
