Spiral Labyrinth is the last release related to Legend of the Galactic heroes, and, like the first prequel gaiden series ('A hundred Billion Lights; Hundred Billion stars'), is made up of various story arcs that flesh out the background of the main characters and some supporting characters of the main series as well.

These ‘side stories’ were conceived in both written and anime form after the main series, and they contain a significant amount of foreshadowing and allusions to future events and important characters from the main series that are only named or shown in passing. These references would likely not be appreciated by those read more

Critic’s Log - Earthdate: August 14, 2013. Review #54: Legend of the Galactic Heroes Gaiden (Season 2)



Space, The Final Frontier. This is a story of the ones that would eventually become Heroes. This is a grand epic that is being told within 110 Episodes in the Main Series, 3 Movies, and 52 Episodes in backstory. Every saga has a beginning and every saga has a conclusion. A lot has been told in this saga and it is time for me to end this voyage with Season 2 of Legend of the Galactic Heroes Gaiden.




Yang becomes the Hero of El Facil and is given a read more
