This adaptation has been overlooked and frowned upon by many, but as someone who finished 110 ova (my fault is that i never finished other things in the series) I understand the disapointment other people feel when it comes to their designs, but let me tell you something. As someone who has also read the books - the actual original source, their appearances fit more into those categories. Not to mention most of them look the same age because they are, and there is not much change between 25-35.

Anyway, back to the story. For those who haven't seen first adaptation, you can watch it read more

When I watched the original LoGH I often found myself asking the question "damn, where all the bishies at?" I look no further.

Note: Watching New Thesis without seeing the original LoGH is possible, but not the best idea. The characters' won't come with much depth and especially the lack of introduction in the beginning will make the series seem worse than it is. The pacing is fast and will feel rushed especially for new viewers. If we tolerate with these things, watching New Thesis instead or before LoGH is certainly not the worst idea either. After all, the first 24 episodes of LoGH are read more

"Why aren't you standing?"
"This is a free country. We have the freedom to not stand if we don't want to. I'm only exercising that freedom."
"Then why don't you want to stand?"
"I exercise my freedom to withhold my answer."
‒ Yang Wen-li, in the audience at a government speech

Does this sound familiar to anyone? You find yourself in a "free" country where you have the freedom to agree with the political leadership or a masked group will come break your windows in the name of patriotism. The Free Planets Alliance even has "free" in its name. See how much it helps.

Tl;dr: Legend of the Galactic Heroes: Die Neue These is a surprisingly great readaptation/remake, drawing on primarily the source novel but also the OVA. I can easily recommend it as a must watch for both OVA viewers, and for new viewers who have not watched the OVA but wish to experience this classic space opera for the first time.

Note 1: While this review will include some comparisons to the OVA and the novel, I will not explicitly discuss any events past the first few episodes, so it is okay to read this if you are completely new to the series.

Note 2: This is read more
