Ah, it's all over. I have no major complaints about the series and fully enjoyed it from the end of the first season and on. Beautiful~

Oberstein's death felt a little cheap at first, but it's actually fitting seeing as Reinhard, the man who he pledged to follow in the beginning, has passed on as well. I really liked Oberstein since he was first introduced, shame he had so little screen time though.

After putting it off forever because its length was daunting and its animation seemingly poor, I started watching it and now 10 days later I am done with my favorite anime of all time. Each episode entertained me so much and left me wanting more that I put life on hold for this one.

I never liked Truhint, but I felt sorry for him when I learned of his true intentions. And poor old Oberstein! :( Again, LotGH keeps true to its trend as both good and evil are realized in each character.

By now, it seems that Karin has stolen Julian from little Charlotte ><

My, what a wonderful line. Loved the ending scene, too

This series gets a 10/10 from me. It's hardly perfect, but perfect is too much to ask for. LotGH sets the bar, and until I find a superior anime, it will remain my high standard.

Bitter irony is what sticks out with Julian and Karin speaking of what it finally got them. For the autonomy of a star system in the fringe required so much extremely gruesome death, loss of great people, but especially the loss of Yang Wenli. Can't think of a character death which would still effect me even to the last episode. It still will, considering what this death represents and how it reflects on the way the world works.

Reinhard's passing was the most suitable for him and left few regrets hence why I didn't shed more than a few tears for him.

And it's in my opinion that a 10 shouldn't reflect perfection, which is a myth, as it should reflect a masterpiece which is what this series is.

the legend ends and history begins.....that was a beautiful masterpiece....

I hated Truniht....when he died I was like.....F*** yeah Truhnit's dead.....maybe because he's like one of those politicians here in our country that's so corrupt....I hated him so.....

but I began liking Oberstein....a man despised by all...but still remains faithful to the empire and to reinhard....and at the time of his death he is still thinking about the empire.......I have so much respect for him now.....and to reinhard and yang too.....

Well, I finally made it to the end. So much suffering, but it appears that hope will spring from the sea of blood after all.

What a journey it was. I won't write up extensive thoughts on the series here, except that I have the burning desire to read the original novels this was based on as well as everything else the original author wrote. It's not perfect, and doesn't displace my favorite anime series, but it deserves high praise for seeing its large ambitions though successfully.

well I'd never say that something I think deserves an 8 and is on the top anime list is over hyped. If I'm giving something an 8 then it isn't hard to imagine people going crazy over it. durarara, Baccano, Girl who leapt through time, fullmetal alchemist brotherhood, they're all shows I've given an 8 and I'm happy to see them in the top anime list.
Although I do agree that season 3 was better, but season 4 was better than the first 2 in my book. Thematically, all the events since yang's death made a lot of sense, including all those character deaths. And the last episode is among the best finale's I've seen yet.

Wow
I have never cried watching any media, may it be series, movies, theatres...
But the last episode of Legend of the Galactic Heroes actually did make me drop tears.

About the whole anime. Story has no equivalents what so ever. It was so detailed, long, original, unique throughout those 110 episode, that you can really not compare it to anything else. Each character whose name you can remember surpasses the main characters of the majority of anime. The development is just outstanding.

I even downgraded a number of anime after completing this.

I don't think my writing skills are appropriate for writing anything more about LotGH. So I won't... For now...
No sig :(

I concur with most of the posts, it is one of the greatest, if not THE greatest anime I've ever seen. Definitely the one with the best plot, characters and dialogue.
I downgraded 80% of my list in comparison to LOGH so I can feel at ease..

Also I'm looking VERY much forward to the Gaiden Series, otherwise the end would have struck me even harder..

Just finished it. Quite a great series but they could have made the opposition ( Free Planet Alliance ) more interesting, since the start of the series it's been quite a lopsided battle, great series and ending anyway.

By Odin's beard I've finally finished this one! What a great OVA series, from the many unique and outstanding HEROES you will love and/or hate, to the sweeping classical music on the GALACTIC background and to the LEGEND it weaved from such diverse characters, it truly is an epic masterpiece!

I felt like crying with the idea it was over, and that almost all my fave characters had passed away, and for most of them, unfairly as compared to their bravery.

It took me more than 2 years to watch it, because I needed to make a break after Yang deaths,and before Reuenthal"s one which was foreshadowed. But I had watched pieces of the previous episodes almost every day. It's so rare (and quite troubling) to see how a story can be a little but still a part of your life, and that you feel for the characters.

The end was so sad, and showed a softer side of Lohengramm who died way too soon (although as Hilda thought it is hard to imagine him getting old). I found it ironic that he wanted to bind his son with Reuenthal's one, but maybe it is only a sign that he trusts Mittermeyer and maybe Reuenthal after all.

The Terraists last attempt failed thanks to the cooperation of former FPA and imperial soldiers. As it could be foreseen, the Grand Archbishop was just a fake one and de Villier is the one that was leading all the operations. I found it surprising to discover
that Trunhit had the same goal as Julian, in introducing constitutionality in this autocracy; but I can't help but feel that it was just another lie from him to Rubinsky.

Oberstein's death led to no mourning, and as the narrator said is still a mystery about being a calculation or an error.

The end was beautiful with the wishes of youngsters of both sides; Julian who has not given up the idea to fight this autocracy and Felix who already wants to reach the stars. It gives the will to see a sequel of it, but would it be as epic and perfect as this one...

Well I am so glad to have watched it, and know for sure it changes my ways of appreciatings animes, in the way that now I feel more exigent with story and characters development.
I'm sure I will watch the whole anime once more, and from time to time my
fave bits, as I can't imagine completely giving up this anime.

It took me quite some time to finish it, but I was glad I watched it. I liked how the ending conveyed a bunch of things, such as how Reinhard realizes that a constitutional monarchy is the best choice to prevent possible oppression in the future, along with how Oberstein sacrifices himself to protect Reinhard (and showed that he wasn't a complete bastard). Julian's philosophical views of government and war were spot on, difference in ideals end up causing great pain for people in the times to come. Lastly, the scene with Felix trying to reach the stars seemed to symbolize that he and Alexander will one day be able to achieve the greatness that Reinhard was able to with Kerichesis. It was also interesting to note that Erwin Josef II didn't die. He just ran away from Landsberg and he in turn stole a corpse(creepy). There are too many words to describe how great this series is, my only regret was not watching it earlier.

10/10

It is only when the sun sets that we see the stars.
Not because the stars weren't there,
But because they shone dim in the light of a greater brilliance.

10/10

There will never be an Anime like this again.

There's no anime out that can do or match what Legend of the Galactic Heroes did, this series is one i can truly consider a masterpiece in anime history although there's always those that will consider it to be overrated in which case we can just ignore because they don't matter.

While watching the series there were many times i stopped and put it "on hold" because things got too intense for me to watch, and finally watching the last episode i felt touched, sad, satisfied, and i even found myself asking for more.

Reinhard's Death and the symbolism of Felix reaching for the star's made the perfect ending.

After having finished watching this, im more then willing to spend the money on buying the DVD sets.

You see, it is this kind of attitude that makes people generally assume that fans of LoGH are "elitist pricks." Yeah, this series is very well done and is deserving of a 10. But, I like to think that people who don't like the series opinions matter just as much as ours. Otherwise your just being conceited, imo.

Lol, you guys are soo melodramatic in your gushing over this series. Not that there's anything wrong with that of course. I'll take LOTGH fanboys over Clannad fanboys any day, at least this series is meaningful and well thought out. I just find it amusing how my final thoughts were "this was pretty good, but I didn't like X,Y, and Z", then I come on here and everyone else's thoughts are "this changed my life and forever dampened my appreciation of lesser art!" Anyways, it might be a sin, but I'm "merely" giving it an 8/10. I kind of feel like an asshole, considering that this show has redefined "epic", and yet I only consider it very freaking good, but that's how I roll and at best I could be convinced to give this a 9. Anyways, just for humor value here's the predictions I made at the end of season 3:

I'm betting the 4th season is going to be thematically based on "the young replace the old." Ultimately we are going to see how democracy perseveres even when the leader dies and how autocracy becomes corrupt. Besides this political message though, I'm guessing that Julian and Katerose become much closer, that the earth cult does amazing damage to the empire, that Dominic bears Rubinsky's child, though Rubinsky gets Karma-bite, Oberstien ends up being a hero somehow and dying too, and one of the twin stars perishes.

How's that for predictions? I'm like freaking Nostradamus! In other words, I only got it half right but if we ignore all the shit I got wrong I'm amazing! Did anyone else predict Oberstein's heroic death? Yeah, you better admit I'm amazing :P

I don't like giving ratings anyway. Now if this was maths, then yeah, but entertainment is subjective.

For me there's only a rating that works and it's over 3.

Lol, I may be grounded but I still have to throw a couple of cents in here. Maybe entertainment is subjective, but all of our best discussion of it happens when we pretend that it isn't. How much thinking happens when we simply say "to each their own?" How boring would these discussions be if we agreed that there was nothing to discuss since it's all a matter of taste anyways?

And besides that, I think we mostly can agree that there is some aspect to art which is objective, even if the ultimate rating isn't. I can definitively say that this anime is more complex and nuanced than kiss x sis, and you would be a fool to disagree. Sure, entertainment is subjective and I'm sure at the end of the day many men would prefer kiss x sis, but nobody would deny LOTGH's superiority in many aspects such is development, music, originality, etc.

As far as ratings go, I like ratings because they are sort of a sum of my thoughts on a series. When I'm making up my mind on a series, I like to be able to look at my thoughts on other series, to sort of place it in a context, and ratings greatly facilitate that process. It gives a sense of closure, if you know what I mean...

Music is subjective. Some people like rap, some people like classic, some people like jazz. It ultimately boils down to which one you enjoy the most. Because hey, it's entertainment. For example, Kiss x Sis has ecchi scenes, and Logh has none of those. If I'm an ecchi fan, which one would I think is superior?

In that case you could write a small review. That would do a much better job than giving a number over 10. Even in all those professional game reviews on ign, and similar sites, they give numbers, and people usually skip the review just to see the ratings. I like words, don't you like words?

In the end, the only true evil was religion...
...and with the death of religion, peace.
(Though that was somewhat obvious beforehand, they really cleared that up with the bit about Truniht and Oberstein, even though we pretty much knew Oberstein was innocent.)

I'm kinda of distraught that they did not talk about Emil poisoning Reinhard, because if you look back you see all sorts of awkward scenes where Emil presents a drink to Reinhard when he's sick, and it definitely focuses in on that... or many other things with make him really suspicious.

Either way, that series was magnificent, undeniable 10/10.

are you sure about that? I mean, I'm pretty sure science is as evil, if not more. Like the bomb that wiped out the whole planet; hell all the war machines used to destroy lives. These days, all (or most) of the wars are about science (energy resources)

yeah I remember that theory flying around in some of the last couple discussion topics (and maybe youtube). I guess the poor guy was innocent all along :P

IIRC Emil saved Reinhard once (from being burned alive) so "Emil poisoned Reinhard" theory isn't plausible imo.

Need to rewatch lotgh to be 100% sure though.

Reinhard and Yang probably sacrificed a hundred million people, but we don't consider them evil :P
I guess I forgot about Braunshwieg, but the difference between him and Terraism is that he was predetermined to become like that, and I think Reinhard (or somebody) says something like "We should feel sorry for him". (Of course I'm not saying we should forgive him.)
Terraism, on the other hand, didn't really need any provocation or had any predisposition to try and disrupt the world and sacrifice many lives along the way, it did that itself.

And no- I was not referring to religion being the only evil in real life.

I dunno I wouldn't go as far as to say that was what the anime said. Religious fanaticism wasn't the only evil in the series, it just became the only one when Reinhard wiped out all the other evils :P

In any case it shows us that religion is the "last man standing" of all the evils. The one with the deepest roots and the less efficient counterstrategies.

And that I would sign for reallife too.

I agree to some extent. I always thought religion was used as an excuse to justify our evils. Humans need a scapegoat, a reason to hide their wickedness. Religion just happens to be the most widely used one historically- and later democracy, utilitarianism, 'survival of the fittest'- all these have been used as excuses to benefit individuals and small groups. The show does a good job of reflecting how things are in reality. IN a lot of ways, religion is the 'root' excuse. But I dont think killing the excuses can kill the evil (us). We can only offset the effects of that evil through our own choices. I think that's how I saw the show as well.

That reminds me of one of my fav songs, 'For the greater good of God' by Iron Maiden:

A life that's made to breath
destruction or defence
A mind that's vain corruption
bad or good intent
A wolf in sheep's clothing
Or saintly or sinner
Or some that would believe
A holy war winner

The way the show handles religion is the only big flaw of LotGH in my opinion. Anyone religious is basically nut in the story, which is a bit of lazy writing. It would have been nice to either see a counter-point religious group, or splintered factions within the Earth cult vying for their own supremacy, but I guess the show would have run to 200 episodes, lol.

I agree with that actually. I found that a bit unnerving. I mean they're all like brainwashed zombies; that's not really the idea of religion I'd normally go for. That's plain and simple a twisted form of cultism. I mean, i believe in a God, but I'm not a brainwashed nutjob!! (or at least I think I'm not)

I think it's better to show Religion in a too bad way (even if not 100 justified) than vice versa.
It would have added another interesting aspect to the series though ^^.

Well that's because people are lame! But seriously, if we're not talking about MAL comment threads but rather actual intelligent debates (though some MAL debates on this series have been good), well, quite frankly these intelligent debates don't exist when "to each his own" is assumed. A great review could say "this is a masterpiece and here's why" and list several facets in defense of this thesis that you had never considered before, or else it could say "well, I liked it, but this is totally just an opinion man" and not say anything interesting.



Music is subjective. Some people like rap, some people like classic, some people like jazz. It ultimately boils down to which one you enjoy the most. Because hey, it's entertainment. For example, Kiss x Sis has ecchi scenes, and Logh has none of those. If I'm an ecchi fan, which one would I think is superior?


As an amateur musician, I would *vehemently* disagree with this statement. Sure, if all you care about is enjoyment, then everything is subjective. But the vast world of art is soo much more than just enjoyment. When we talk about good or bad, we have a ton of attributes to cover in that definition, of which enjoyment is only one. I was once moved to tears by a classical song. I certainly wouldn't call that enjoyment, because I was freaking sad! What it was was beauty, which I think is a thing we all recognize and respect in art, and it's an example of a concept that forms a 'relative' objectivity simply by being shared so widely among us. We all recognize creativity as good, even though we might personally prefer, say, erotic appeal. But it just falls under our somewhat nebulous definition of the word "good". We also recognize craftmanship, so we could even recognize well-crafted erotic appeal as good. But simply being erotic appeal wouldn't make something "good" because we as a society have come to define good as something that doesn't necessarily imply that. Sorry for being so long winded.


In that case you could write a small review. That would do a much better job than giving a number over 10. Even in all those professional game reviews on ign, and similar sites, they give numbers, and people usually skip the review just to see the ratings. I like words, don't you like words?


Well don't get me wrong, I do often write reviews. They generally don't seem too well received though since I get more "unhelpful" votes than "helpful" votes. I also write little small thoughts and minireviews on a text document that I've saved on my computer. But, I have 40 pages of my thoughts in word form. If I want to see the gestalt, then I'm out of luck since it's just too much to hold in one mind. With numbers, I have a big (albeit blurry) picture of what my thoughts are regarding all the series I've watched. It's like zooming out, you have a wider view but not as rich a view. It's nice to zoom out once in a while, don't you agree?

there is so much to tell about this episode lol :)

i'm pretty sure that the narrator is Julian,he said that he wanted to become a historian,and the narator is always narating in past tense..

Reinhard's death was pretty much expected,but i still felt sad,he was a good guy afterall :(...i hope that his kid and reuenthal's kid will be friends :)

i will really miss this :(,it took me 4 months to finish it(11.08.2010-18.12.2010),so it kinda became part of my life xD,i think i will be sick for the next few days :p
i'll miss the FPA,the action,some of the empire characters,Reinhard's blonde haid,the 19th century atmosphere
i'll miss the fights,and the unique style of storytelling this anime had...i'll miss alot of things

i'm really happy that i watched such a good anime anyway :),thank you mal top list for showing it to me :)

8 for Artwork,7 for sound,9 for entertainment,but a 10 for the storyline and a 10+ for the characters,so i'm going to give this a deserved 10/10 and i'll also add the anime on my favorite list

once more,i will really miss this :(,i wish i could express my feelings i feel right now through words,but i guess everybody knows that feeling after you finish something good :(

But it's not over yet! If you want more, there's still 3 movies and 52 episodes of prequels and side stories left (assuming you haven't watched them already, that is)

i already have the "my conquest is the sea of stars" movie on my pc and i plan to watch it sometimes soon
also the series based on Yang's past

but i think that something will be missing since i'm basically going back into the past
a sequel with Julian,Katerose,Poplan and the others would be nice :D

We could make that up in our mind, you know.
I would like Julian and katerose to get married, have some children and then get divorced. That would be awesome.

EDIT: congrats on finishing Lotgh. I've watched all the prequels and now I'm sad cuz there's nothing LOTGH to look forward to.

hehe why getting divorced?
another proper dramatic way of ending things would be if Julian got space aids from Reinhard and he'd die a few months after getting maried with the red head :p

i hope that they wouldn't rush on getting married,and by lotgh rules,they probably didn't :)

Now how would Julian get space aids from Reinhard?....

Hm.

Reinhard is tortured by jealous Kircheis in afterlife heheh.
