Wish you a merry Christmas 🥳
Yeah your right I used to hot and humid climates because 31'C is considered tolerable in my country, during the summer we reached around 36 to 39 Celsius and that's pricking hot to the point I only laze around during the afternoon and late morning because it was too hot to do anything, and we only used air conditioning at night because electricity is cheap at night compared to the day when its the most expensive.
It's the rainy season here but it's natural since I live in southeast Asia.
Might be the shortest review I ever made last year
Here's the link on My Beck Review: https://myanimelist.net/reviews.php?id=364453
A lot of people like and upvote it, Hope you like it too, upvote is also appreciated
Interested to read what my overall thoughts about it?
To your point, the remake does take and improve upon the original. As I said, the visuals absolutely stomp the 1980s animation of the original. The new soundtrack is similarly superb. The original reminded me a lot of the Star Wars soundtrack, and rightfully so (both being space operas from the 80s). The sound design of the remake is also phenomenal. I laughed at the sound effects of the original, frankly.
After comparing the two for myself, I think you have a bit of rosy retrospection bias. I'd say give the remake a shot. There is a lot to appreciate in the remake beyond solely the improved visuals, as I've mentioned.
I also have to outright disagree about the the space battles not being the biggest selling point. Space operas are driven by space warfare with dabblings in all of the other topics that drive the warfare (economics, social issues, politics, etc.). The spectacle and shear amount of time spent on the battles further emphasizes this. Even when battles aren't taking place, the strategies and objectives of upcoming battles are being discussed. It's kinda hard to not to see the battles being the focal point.
I've also tried the remake of Higurashi. Keeping in mind, I couldn't care less about Higurashi, but I have made passing glances at the visual novels. I'd say that remake also looked promising. The artstyle of Akio Watanabe (of Monogatari and Grisaia fame) was an interesting touch. Albeit, I haven't cared to bother with the original, so take my opinion with grains of salt and pepper.
Of course, to each their own, but I've seen many people knock remakes for the sake of them being remakes. Stereotypically, sure, remakes of games and shows are worse than their originals, but I don't consider that to be the case with Legends of the Galactic Heroes.
I did try watching a bit of the original, but the remake is just so well done (story, visuals, audio), that I don't care very much whether or not I'm getting a 100% faithful adaption. I also have to admit, I prefer the design of the ships in the remake over the original. I also already consider the more economic- and politically-driven story of this remake to be better than the more action-packed narrative of The Clone Wars, so I'm pretty happy, overall.
It's not as if I can't watch older shows with an older animation style. I've watched a fair share, myself. If there's a truly compelling reason for me to watch the original, sure, I'll give it another shot. I'm really satisfied with the remake, though.
There are different types of characters and shows to cater to different types of people, so I guess that's that. Thanks for giving your thoughts. Helps me to see things from another's perspective.
Yes, i've seen only a few, most of them were funny. But he is rather a meme-er. I like a much more mature content...
