I haven't watched the original series but seeing there's a narrator in the main cast, I hope he's not as annoying as in HxH

He will just spoil stuff in the next episode preview.

LotGH has always been fujo-pandering, though. Just look at Reinhard and Kircheis. I don't like the new chara design either but it's not what matters the most.
What concerns me is the length of this new adaptation. It's way too short to adapt even half of the story.

I want to puke

Get this weeb trash out of my face. A 100 episode space opera classic turned into otaku 12 ep garbage


Modern anime at its finest

That's not Yang... I guess it was too much to expect LOGH to look like LOGH in 2018. Let's hope politics will remain as a focal theme.

Won't be hard to top the original ova, in my opinion.

They had the flamboyant look in lotgh as well, though.

First off, yes it will be difficult, not only difficult, but almost impossible.

Secondly, I have stated this in another discussion, but the character designs are, indeed, awful. Reinhard and Kircheis are supposed to be pretty boys anyway, so they're ok (I don't know why they changed Kircheis' hair considering as it was described as curly even in the novels, but that's a nitpick). Yang, on the other hand, is a 31 year old man who is noted several times in both the original novels and in the original adaptation to be bad at keeping both himself and his surroundings clean, and he is even described as somewhat of an alcoholic. The original design from the original OVA was able to pull this off well, as it gave him a very realistic face made him see tired most of the time. Now look at this new design and see if it captures any of those characteristics. You're not supposed to know from a design alone, of course, however, it would be jarring to see someone designed like this to act like Yang did in the novels. If you want more further evidence on how the character designs in the original might be superior to this, even if the animation and art is far more detailed, then please watch Digibro's video on the subject.
I will agree that the art style of the orig is really nice.
I've seen that vid a while ago and agree with the point he made.
It's the only thing about the ova I think is strong.

Shitty awful character designs lifted straight out of fujobait shows.
Questionable animation.
Unfitting VAs


RIP LOGH remake. Who thought this was a good idea?



12 episodes

WHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAT? HOWDOYOUFITASHOWINTOTHATWHYWOULDYOUDOTHAT
I think it might be sort of like Space Battleship Yamato 2199. It's the same pace as the original, it just covers less. This being said, I doubt it will be as good as 2199 but I hope it will at least be better than Berserk 2016.

Why remake sth as perfect as LOGH?

Sep 22, 11:34 AM by D1UTURNUS

I need some time to adjust to the new character designs, but they look sharp! My only worry regarding that is how stoic Yang looks in this adaptation compared to how he is in the original. This more serious appearance doesn't mesh well with his more lax, pretty goofy personality.

I'm glad to see more news of a remake, but I'm concerned how much material they will cover this season (and future seasons if they are made). I'll be skeptical, but I'm glad to see LOGH gather more interest.

With the exception of Mittermeyer, I can imagine the rest of the cast to be very close to these designs.

Just for the triggered elitists, this is gonna be good!

Not sure why some people are calling this fujo bait. The character designs look horrible to me

Honestly, I'd rather have the ones from the original OVA over the new designs. I don't care for the cgi either. It's not bad, but some nice hand drawn ships would be a treat. I'll just finish the original series and hope for the best I guess

IIRC from discussion i had with people who actually read novels (again, i have no interest in LOGH, like at all, not that i hate it, simply space opera is not my thing, just irked how lot of people really nitpicking about visual "insluting" their intellegence), no it isn't, mostly bunch of spaceship illustration...
