The Galactic Empire and the Free Planets Alliance have been locked in a seemingly endless war for more than a century and a half. In the Empire, a young Siegfried Kircheis meets Reinhard von Müsel and his older sister Annerose. Kircheis enjoys a happy friendship with the two beautiful blonde-haired siblings until the day that their alcoholic father, a lesser nobleman with low standing, accepts a request for Annerose to be sold as a concubine to the Kaiser. Although enraged, Reinhard is powerless to stop the whims of the Imperial Court. He and his father soon move away, leaving Kircheis behind.

A few years later, Reinhard returns in a military uniform and declares his intent to rise through the ranks and free his sister from sexual servitude. Kircheis joins Reinhard on this daring journey to save Annerose, yearning to forever stay by the side of his friends.

Golden Wings is a slight misstep in the Legends of the Galactic Heroes franchise, not enough to stumble on its face but not enough to style it out by whistling innocently and pretending it didn’t almost trip over.

It’s best to watch this movie after episode 54 of the LotGH OVA, as this movie was released after that and before episode 55. The story is set before the OVA, but after watching 54 episodes of Reinhard ascend through the ranks of the military and getting comfortable with his acquaintance, you can get the most satisfaction out of Golden Wings in seeing him ascend through the read more

Okay, this definitely won't be an objective review, but at the very least I'll try to make it descriptive and hopefully understandable, even for people who disagree with me. There's not really any need for another review of this, I just really feel like putting my negative thoughts about this movie into words.

As I said, this won't be objective, and it's coming from the perspective of a fan of the main series, and my criticisms are intended to be read by other fans of the series (after all, I don't see why anyone else would watch this). On its own, this movie might have been read more

Whoever was involved in making this movie within the Legend of the Galactic Heroes franchise made something that is quite the far cry from the quality writing and presentation one would expect from the franchise. Golden Wings' presentation is significantly different from other chapters of the LoGH franchise sporting a far different drawing style, new voice actors in the roles of the show's prominent characters, taking away the title's famous orchestral music scores for generic dramatic pieces and dumbing down the writing of the series to the point where this movie gets in the annoying habit of rubbing in your face the ordeals faced by read more

Well this was a let down. If you're watching this it's because you've seen and liked the other OVA's/movies.
The art is lacking, some characters are hardly recognizable, both in look and voice. But that's not the worst part.
This movie lacks consistency of information that you get from the other movies/OVA's. It contradicts with what you already know.
4/10, pretty bad compared to what you would expect from such a great series/franchise.
