A new manga series based on the Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu (Legend of the Galactic Heroes) light novels will launch in the 45th issue of Young Jump magazine. It will be published on October 8.

Ryuu Fujisaki (Houshin Engi) will illustrate the new series, which will provide a unique perspective of Yoshiki Tanaka's original work. Fujisaki also released a sample illustration (pictured) of series protagonist Reinhard von Lohengramm. A previous manga series by Katsumi Michihara ended serialization in 2000. That version has more than 15 million copies in circulation.

The original light novels were published between 1982 and 1989. The novels have since been adapted into a 110-episode OVA series between 1988 and 1997. A new adaptation was recently announced to be produced by Production I.G.

Are they actually planning on finish the story? Or it's just like Kyoukaisenjou no Horizon manga, covers half of 1 vol and disappears

it was never a light novel its was just a sreallize novel akin ot guin saga
"If you tremble with indignation at every injustice, then you are a comrade of mine"

When the union's inspiration through the workers' blood shall run
There can be no power greater anywhere beneath the sun
Yet what force on earth is weaker than the feeble strength of one
For the Union makes us strong

Eh, I don't see why that would be the case. Arakawa's manga adaptation was already well under way at the time the anime was announced.

I.G. adapting this manga would be a weird case of putting the cart before the horse.

Synopsis:

In humanity's distant future, two interstellar states—the monarchic Galactic Empire and the democratic Free Planets Alliance—are embroiled in a never-ending war. The story focuses on the struggles of love story between Reinhard von Müsel and Yang Wen Li as they rise to power and fame in the Galactic Empire and the Free Planets Alliance.

Besides the two main heroes, the story is full of vivid characters and intricate politics. All types of characters, from high nobility, admirals and politicians, to common soldiers and farmers, are interwoven into their love story.

[i]For the sake of their love Yang and Reinhard try to unite the universe and put the wars to peace. But their way of doing are different, while Reinhard try to do it with dictatorship Yang want to reach his goal with democracy. The problems keep coming as their relationship grow more and more complicated, and so "the largest love space opera" begin.

Thought of the same thing. The pic of Reinhard looks awful.

According to what people take as BL nowadays, yes there is a lot of it.

Just some guess since this already happened from a different animation studio.

LOGH is officially going to be recognised as a Seinen, well manga version at least. Will read if the art is good.
All credit goes to Sacred.

I'm just going to leave this here


Actually though, I'm pretty eager to see how this manga is going to turn out. I wonder what the character designs will be like and what the manga will be covering. The initial illustration of Reinhard looks kind of funny, but the actual manga art might be better, I'm thinking.

Eh, I have no problems with Reinhard's new character design. For the most part (besides Yang and Reinhard's designs) I kind of disliked the OVA's designs, and I have no problem with the cast getting a new (and probably somewhat generic) "anime" look to them.

Anyway, I'm extremely excited for this, hopefully it'll help make the wait for I.G.'s anime feel a little less long.

Yeah, I don't honestly see LoGH working well as manga too.

Well, I could still be wrong. Time will tell.

LoGH = Instant watch/read, but I don't think that artsyle suits the story.
Let's hope someone picks this up to traslate.

the novel is one the the biggest selling sci fi novels in japanese history [ no lie] but the manga never sold well
