I do not know if this decision is good or not, but I'm already hyped.

The casting is pretty solid in all fairness. Aside from few that I think it won't be that good of a choice personally. But well, hope that the remake can actually fix the mass issues I have in the original since I disliked it wholeheartedly.

Not sure what to expect. The cast neither seems bad nor great to me, let's hope it'll worth the hype.

One thing's for sure is that it will sound really awkward hearing Merkatz with Trunicht's voice. ^^;

It'll take a bit of time to get used to the new roles. Can't imagine anyone other than Norio Wakamoto as Reueunthal.

Damn, as if my expectations weren't low enough already, these altered designs look terrible compared to their originals. I don't understand why they would make these changes, what the fuck happened to Reuenthal and Cazerne?

I don't care too much about the VA, I can easily get used to these.
The visual designs of characters are fucking trash though, that will be harder to swallow

This is one of the 'this is as real as it gets' moment and I'm sure it will be a buzzing news among females fan. As for me, ehh but it's 12 episodes so it's doable.

Thanks for posting these! I was hoping to see new images soon. I guess my thoughts on these would be:

-Oberstein looks great. I was worried about how they were going to design him after seeing the main trio in the trailer.
-Reuenthal and Alex look ridiculous. What happened? Very disappointed with Reuenthal's look.
-Julian looks way too young.
-The rest are good character designs.

it's 2018, they were going to change the designs from the start lol. I wanted them to use old designs or atleast tweak them a bit for this modern age reboot.

this series always has been realy popular for fujoshi, even it's old official manga adaptation run in BL magazine FYI.... the recent one is in ultra jump, but the art is even more glorious...

i am not gonna watch any from this franchise tho, not really interested in space opera...

orignals novels doesn't have original character design except some few cover and it doesn't that much different from this tbh...

By original I was referring to the 1988 OVA designs. Some of these new ones look vastly different and are frankly quite unfitting for their characters, I wouldn't have even recognised Cazerne if his name wasn't listed there.

they are not originals tho, they are adaptation, novel is the original source...

Looks like the character design will change the show's remake name to: Legend of the Bishounen Heroes :P

Forgot ProdIG was doing this. Looks pretty ehhhh. And the cast is pretty alright but I'm sure it's gonna be mass dissapointment.

What's up with those character redesigns. Luckily it's a reboot so we can get to know them again.

But designs like Julian Mintz are puzzling. Why does he get such a generic look all of a sudden? It's a large departure of the old one.
