Sep 14, 2020 5:33 PM
A sequel for Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu: Die Neue These (Legend of the Galactic Heroes: Die Neue These) was announced on Monday, following NHK's broadcast of the new anime series. The sequel will run for 24 episodes, spanning from episodes 25–48. Production company Shochiku also posted an announcement promo.
NHK's broadcast of the anime series began on April 6 and marked the television airing of the second season. The new broadcast featured new opening and ending theme songs, "CRY" by SawanoHiroyuki[nZk]:mizuki and "Hikari no Hoshi" by ELISA, respectively.
Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu: Die Neue These - Kaikou, the first 12 episodes of the anime series, aired in Spring 2018. The second season, Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu: Die Neue These - Seiran, premiered as a film trilogy on September 27, October 25, and November 29 last year, respectively—each part comprised of four episodes. Crunchyroll simulcast the show with subtitles, while Funimation streamed an English dub. The former began streaming the films last September.
Yoshiki Tanaka penned the ten-volume original space opera novel and side stories from 1982 to 1989, selling a cumulative 15 million copies. VIZ Media published the novel series in English between March 2016 and November 2019. Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu won the Seiun Award for the best novel of the year in 1988.
The novel inspired a 110-episode original video anime series, three prequel films, and two set of side stories, among manga and musical stage adaptations. Sentai Filmworks licensed the original anime series in North America and released it on home video in August 2018.

Hell yeah! I'm glad they're doing 24 episodes, I was worried they wouldn't be able to adapt all the novels since it'd take 10 seasons at the rate they were going. This'll have to be at least two books but I'm kinda hoping they can do 3, since that'll get us up to The Battle of Vermillion. As long as it wouldn't wreck the pacing.
Did the remake do a better job with episode 1 and 2 of the original or is the overture movie still the better option
Overture by far.
