When I looked at it, the gray uniforms for the empire bothered me as well, but I assume the black velvet costumes on a dark stage would make it difficult to see the actors, even with the spotlighting.

I can't believe there was a performance of this exactly 7 days ago in this world, and I wasn't even aware of it. Apparently, there will be another on the first of next month. I guess if it's still going, it can't be too bad. I wish I could find even a short clip of some of the acting, but all I can find are the actors talking.

The Kircheis is way too cute to be Kircheis.


EDIT: Err, or if I search in English, I get a 2:24:50 clip that covers the entire first season (focusing on the empire). Yeah, that's about what I was looking for.


I skipped ahead to around 2:08:40, and I'm crying. Hehe. :P Also, around 2:13:00 LOL.

Why the hell does Reinhard have a mole on his face?? Why are the Imperial wearing gray and not black?

Reinhard's hair...what happened?




In my opinion, almost Live action adaptations are bad, except very rare ones (ex. Nodame Cantabile )
I wonder how it could be, Maybe they would make LOGH with Star Wars' sauce ?

People in black full-body costumes maneuvering model space ships in the dark, like this?

Now that would be interesting to see. ^^


They'll probably do either drops or projections for the background. If they do drops, they'll probably make some sort of models for the ships that they'll fly in and out. If they do projections, they'll probably incorporate the ships into those.

Will European actors play in the roles of those Prussian guys from the empire and a lot from the FPA, or is it just all japanese guys with strangely colored hairs who will be actors?

Not as much as most of current animes.

Aug 22, 2010 8:55 AM by smokes

why don't they simply remake the series with better graphics and animation ?

In Rome Coliseum they did battles with real scale battleships, if they could do it i'm sure they can pull this of too...

This might actually work.

This has excellent potential. I would love to see this play hit it big and be picked up by Broadway.

Impossible.
