In the distant future, humanity is under attack by the Abh Empire, a race of advanced humanoid beings possessing vastly superior technology. As countless worlds fall to the Abh, mankind establishes the Four Nations Alliance—a resistance faction made up of the United Mankind, the Republic of Greater Alcont, the Federation of Hania, and the People's Sovereign of Union Planets.

Seikai no Monshou tells the story of Jinto Linn. When he was young, his father—the president of Martine—sold their world in exchange for a high position in the empire. Now a young count, Jinto must learn the ways of Abh nobility and live among those who subjugated his people. Helping him is Lafiel Abriel, an austere Abh princess whom Jinto quickly befriends. While traveling to Jinto's new school in the Abh homeland, their ship is caught in a violent space battle between the fleets of the Alliance and the Abh. Jinto and Abriel are thrust into the conflict, unaware that this skirmish marks the beginning of a full-scale war between the Abh Empire and mankind.

Crest of the Stars is one of the best sci-fi series that I have ever watched and I will try my best to formulate my opinions in a simplistic manner. Having said that let's not dwell too much about the synopsis and get straight into the review.

Crest of the Stars does nothing short of an outrageously amazing job of depicting a space-age saga without ever losing its way. In the first episode, everything gets very clear that this is heavily influenced by imperialism. You get thrown into this not world but a galaxy of endless possibilities of places to discover and inhabit. With the ...

Mixed Feelings
Crest of the stars is less sci fi and more romance comedy without the romance and without the comedy (very poor attempts anyway). The two main characters are unlikable entitled nobles with a typical archetypical strong female lead and an beta male. Ship and art design is decent enough. Those that are fans of legends of galactic heroes will be disappointed in the poor characters and there lack of development in this one. I kept waiting for the anime to pick up or get better and it never did. The two main characters are excruciating to listen to them have a conversation and will ...

Genuinely one of the worst anime I've ever seen and I read a lot of sci-fi and in terms of scifi outside of anime it's also abysmal.

Tedious, formulaic and genuinely no redeeming features. It does't even look good.

It's genuinely terrible. But not only is it terrible it's also deeply up it's own arse that it doesn't understand it's trash. And so gives it some of the dramatic trappings and rhythms of epic scifi with none of the intellectual or dramatic content.

But the other thing is it's also so long. It's not got much to say and even less that's interesting but to presumably fill the ...

Park the Enterprise and power down the X-Wing because our anime spaceships are coming in for a landing. These ships may not be blowing up Death Stars or battling the Borg Cube but they are each taking mankind (and sometimes also aliens) where they have never gone before.
