Why is it 'gay'? As if the concept of a genius single-handedly creating an empire is an original concept. And its not even about the concept, its how they've done it, and their involvements in the twists, the intrigues and the plots that contributed to their success.

As for quality download? Well, its actually widely available, you can even download it off Animesuki! And the quality is not bad at all.

Besides, this is has a large cast, its an opportunity to listen to some of your favorite VAs.

In written form, it is my favorite novel of all time. In anime form, maybe not so much, but up there with Macross (if you must force a comparison).

It's Japanese in origin. Wondering if it's gay goes without question.

How would you compare it to say...Code Geass?

That's good. Both Dirty Pair and Saint Seiya used cameras recording in front of a TV set.

Everyone enjoys a spot the seiyuu game.

Maybe I should just read it then? I'd rather be on my bed than sitting in front of a computer.

Thats like comparing apples to oranges. Although LoGH is nowhere near as absurd. There is no supernatural element, no giant mecha, no angle shots, just plain-old human nature.

Its printed in traditional Chinese and Japanese, no English. Good luck finding one online.

Good. I want less "Kukuku. *BA-ZING DEUS EX MACHINA*" and more "Let's do something that will actually work." War should be less about the people you meet and screw over, and more about killing the enemy.

It is somewhat comparable to the 12 Kingdoms in terms of scope. LoGH will also challenge our concepts of existing political systems, and despite this novel being written some 20 years prior, it sometimes sound like a dead-on criticism of today's world.

Definitely more focus than 12 Kingdoms though. Besides, the 12 Kingdoms anime gave everyone the wrong impression, because the actual saga is far longer and far more extensive and not focused on one character alone. Although the 12 Kingdoms is an exceptionally written epic.

Regarding LOTGH I've not watched all of it (Yet) but it was quite enjoyable. If it wasn't for the fact I think it's probably against the rules, I'd link to an video of the first major battle in the first two episodes of LOTGH, the Astate Encounter to see if it's the kind of think you guys would like.

Anyways, as much as I'd love to debate the merits of LOTGH it's a tangent that is VASTLY off topic for this discussion thread.

Yes, LoGH is a pretty good show - almost regardless of one's personal preferences. That said, how much (and how) one enjoys it can come down to familiarity with history and politics. Also, contrary to what you may have heard, Legend of Galactic Heroes isn't really all that realistic - for example, one of the main combat tactics is for heavy infantry to don armor and attack using halberds or axes.

I'd say that LoGH is quite a bit better than Code Geass, but there really isn't a whole lot of basis for comparison other than the fact that they both talk about politics. LoGH doesn't have any magical battles, and it doesn't have quite as convoluted plot, but it also lacks strongly characterized female characters as well. They do both have a fair bit of plot-convenient contrivances though.

I guess it depends on what you like and dislike about Code Geass.

The Twelve Kingdoms novels are (slowly) being released in North America, but the LoGH novels aren't, so it's harder to come across a translated version.

In terms of comparison, LoGH is probably most similar to the Romance of Three Kingdoms, in terms of anime, there really isn't anything particularly similar, but Crest of the Stars does cover the same kind of territory.

I admit to not being particularly impressed with the way Legend of Galactic Heroes comments on different political systems. The way the arguments for them are presented doesn't really do the subject justice.

They're making a LoGH RTS. God, I hope someone does a fan translation.

After Touch C-a is giving us another DVD version of their previous works. This time it is none other than Legend of Galactic Heroes.
Thanks again C-A.

Glad to see people still like LOGH and Touch. I will endeavor to keep a good pace so we don't take years to get them out.

Oh nice news. I was about to start off that 20GB torrent, but seems like I now have another reason to wait for a while more.

Tytania is going to be made into anime form...

Make yourself ready to that, all LoGH fans.

I wish they would remake and complete the animation of Heroic Legend of Arslan at some point and not leave it half-cocked.

BTW, there's a second novel series now, isn't there?

I have a mixed feeling on this. I am indifferent between Tytania and Arslan (get to admit Arslan was done too crappy).

It's another space opera from Tanaka. But as you must know, the author is extremely lazy. I guess he must break a record to get this 20-years-have-been-spent-but-only-3-vols-have-been-completed story animated.

If you mean a second novel series set in same universe of LoGH, there is not and won't be.

I need my sweet Katerose roaring, "death to the lazy writer."
