Jinto and Lafiel were riding on a light-armed transport ship "Bokbrusue" and navigating at the planar space of the Hyde System. This was for Jinto to govern the Hyde System, which returned to Empirial rule after the Union retreated, officially as an Earl. However, the government of Martin, Jinto`s motherland, resisted obstinately against the Empirial rule. On the other side, "Daiichi Jyuurin Sentai" (the First Devastation Fleet), formed with the new ship type "Attack Vessel", travelled to the Hyde System for drilling practices, but...

Banner of the Stars III OVA is easily the best of the entire series. It comes full circle back to the planet Martine, where Jinto was born.

Crest/Banner of the Stars was a classic space opera series for it's time, and it's easy to see why. The world building is well above average, the OST is good for it's time, and the cast of characters are colorfully interesting.

The focus is mostly on the Abh. ...

Banner of the Stars III is supposed to be the conclusive arc in the grand saga of the Stars franchise. And conclude everything it does, till it has engulfed all of humanity's future in a brilliant blue tint of regal oppression, covered over with a sweet, crooning romance.

Let me get two things out of the way, so you can walk away if you feel offended:
1) I believe the Abh are the real villains of the show, and there's actually a genuine reason the people hate them so much: these people are blindly self-justified aggressors at heart.
2) Worse still - the show is actually aware of ...
