Die Neue These - PV 2 is out
The older character's designs look alright but they kinda look out of place alongside the basugay ones.
Was the basketball there originally?
Ok, I chanded my mind. It looks ok.
The CG battleships look good so far.
No, I just don't have this poster saved without the ball.
Looks fine to me.
Looks worse than Berserk 2016 but at least Yang sounds okay.
side characters look normal
MCs look fucking retarded except Yang
Yang sounds too young
Reinhard sounds too old
Fahrenheit. Surprisingly, unlike others, they made him look too old (he is supposed to be slightly older than 30)
Lao. He is ok.
I'm guessing Wahlen?
No, he is one of unimportant admirals from earlier episodes. Stagen probasbly
Looks worse than Berserk 2016
You can't be serious
I think the problem is most of the characters look too young. Farenheit is looking closer to correct than a character like Yang.
What the fuck have they done to Paeta.
Shinn sounds all right as Yang, though.
Who is Fahrenheit's VA? It's gonna be strange not hearing Sho Hayami.
So, we went from Charles Bronson to Gary Oldman?
Are you not entertained ?
I don't like this shit at all but this is no where near as bad as Berserk 2k 16/17
What's wrong with Paeta? He looks like he is supposed to - a boring middle-aged man
Why did they have to ruin Kircheis so badly. Of all characters, he suffered the most.
fuck, i actually like it.
Fahrenheit looks like the original Schenkopp, even more so than the new Schenkopp
Lapp is so far the most handsome character introduced. He probably wasn't designed by Kikuchi
Did they not recast him? That hurts.
Kircheis isn't anywhere near as bad as Cazzelnu.
Looks worse than Berserk 2016
Was Reinhard always so much smaller than Kircheis? I thought they were about the same size.
It's too boring. Beyond mob character levels of forgettable, but "erodoujin faceless oyaji" generic. OVA Paeta at least had a reasonably memorable face.
After the new PV, I think characters look better when animated than in concept art. There is a chance he is going to be allright
That tends to be the case
Yes, in the books. Reinhard liked to joke about it
I'm worried. What if they make Oberstein do something wrong?
The supporting characters look much better than the mains.
Eh, maybe just a bit more memorable
Oberstein's biggest crime will be not changing his hairstyle.
At what point in the series are the translated novels up too so far?
Every time I see more it looks worse. What did we do to deserve this?
Kircheis is fucking huge dude
Yeah, maybe I was exaggerating it a bit. Old Paeta could at least be picked out from a lineup, probably. New Paeta looks like they just dressed an old guy from an A-1 anime in an FPA uniform.
「銀河英雄伝説 Die Neue These」の、打ち入りがありました!
Was the preparatory meeting for “The Legend of the Galactic Heroes: The New Thesis”!
It was a place full of respect for the “Galactic Heroes”.
It’s a really…really…amazing work.
To enchant people, this much…
To love people, this much…
The cast, the staff, combining our emotions,
In order to make the best work,
Is what we pledged that night.
Please trust Mamo-chan.
The weird thing is that besides the designs for the important characters everything else seems fine. The minor characters no one gives a shit about seem fine, some of the effects are cool, the ships look a bit too CGI-ish but are otherwise fine. It's really just the atrocious character designs that are dragging this thing down so badly.
Are you ready for Lao to reclaim his rightful place in the canon?
Reinhard's invasion on FPA territory
After he lands on Phezzan or was that earlier? I'm thinking around episode 40-50 I could be wrong though.
He'll get a few lines and will be forgotten till he'll reemerge as, guess what, a Dusty's assistant
But muh foppery and whim...
tfw you're going to watch anyway regardless of how good it may be
After he "annexes" Phezzan and Yang starts a partisan war against him. I don't remember which episodes are these.
Also, the book 6 will be released in April. Buy it, plebs, to support Tanaka.
I think this happened towards the end of season 2
I imagine Vermillion is close
So who here is ready for the Funimation simuldub?
Fuckers better go all out on the FPA Anthem.
Reinhard really looks out of place in his own show
Are they going to say Kaiser or Emperor?
LoGH is going to be dubbed
Book 5 ends with Vermillion and Balaat treaty
So it's season 3 stuff?
There's too many other shows I'm looking forward to this season to torture myself with this. I'll pick it up later if it turns out not to be flaming garbage.
all the imperial characters speak with German accents
I would forgive many things if this came to pass.
all the imperial characters speak only in German
I would forgive everything.
That would be a great shitpost but not gonna happen.
I imagine they'll use a few common german terms tho.
Maybe. 10 books can't be equally divided on 4 parts.
Any predictions for VAs?
How do I go back to 1993?
Bittenfeld, what the hell?
Despite the character design. This looks a lot better than something like Kino (2017).
It looks like someone actually put effort into it. Especially the space battle. Though it could still be complete shit.
You hunt down the cels and mount them on your wall.
Start spinning the Earth backwards
caring about the dub
They should get the guy who designed the older character to redesign the mains.
At least he didn't give his plan to Paeta on paper, like it was in original. Sometimes modern changes are for better.
He is gonna change at least once.
desu the new designs are better at conveying what the book wanted. The old OVA didn't really make me think "space france vs space prussia"
Were they describe in the book as looking like twinks from a certain basketball anime?
desu the new designs are better at conveying what the book wanted
I agree with this
space france vs space prussia
You lost me here.Galactic Empire and FPA seems to have much more inspirations.
Angry delinquent with a giant white pompadour
If you only knew how bad things really were
It's not the first time.
the CG looks good
How do you type despite being blind?
They say this kind of garbage shit every fucking show. It won't change the fact that they raped the series as hard as they could. What they did is the furthest thing from respect possible.
Honestly the only complaint I have so far are the character designs. Everything else looks okay I guess. Voice acting sounds decent enough. I fear that they are going to fuck up the pacing though with what amounts to basically 24 episodes over 2 seasons.

What's wrong with that? Season #1 of the old series had only 26 episodes, and 2 of them were Gaiden filler.
The entire original series was 110 episodes though. Also one of the strengths of the original series was it's slow exposition making you feel invested in the characters. I fear that with such (relatively speaking) short runtime the emotional payoff will be lessened.
They're not adapting the entire series.
The entire original series was 110 episodes though.
It didn't all come out at once. They took breaks in between the seasons.
The main Legend of Galactic Heroes OVA series is divided into four series:
The first series ran from December 1988 to June 1989. It included 26 episodes of 24 minutes each.
The second series ran from July of 1991 to February of 1992. It included 28 episodes of 25 minutes each.
The third series ran from July of 1994 to February of 1995. It included 32 episodes of 27 minutes each.
The fourth and final series ran from September of 1996 to March of 1997. It included 24 episodes of 26 minutes each.
Yeah, it's too late for the TV series but they can get the dude that did the older and background character to redesign the mains for the movie. He can't change the base designs but he redraw them in his style. It's not just so they don't look like Kurocok characters but also that the cast don't look like they're from two different shows.
They are not? My mistake then
Fair enough I guess. I suppose that the length makes sense then.
I suppose so. Honestly though if the animation is good and the story and voice acting is good then I suppose that it could all work out.
He looks too young.
Yeah, there's an interview with the director where he talks about how he hopes he gets the chance to tackle the rest of the series as well or something like that. I don't think they've confirmed what will be covered but it seems reasonable to assume this season will be the first book and the movies will be the second.
asians look younger than most races.
Does he talk about half court shots and never actually hiring a mechanical animator?
Even different art style couldn't fix new designs
~ Roricon stands for freedom, arr hair pantsu that sets us free ~
~ Frat is justice, symboric of strength, our hope for oppai to be ~
~ My friends, not so far away, fapping wirr reunite dick and hand ~
~ Oh hair, yuri hentai, true freedom for arr men ~
I hope democracy will win this time, ans Caselnes will be the new president
Mamoru is voicing Reinhard and Okarin in the same season
This is going to annoy me.
Who would elect a permavirgin otaku as their president?
Also Ryuji in P5. Okarin is great though but I guess it's S;G 0 so he might not be as fun.
Those who want officially marry their dakimakura
He's a big guy.
Really? I hadn't noticed.
Is that how his hand is supposed to look like?
Yeah, but I'm going to be listening to Reinhard and expect him to start cackling and ranting about SERN.
Call me a traitor, but Lapp, Fahrenheit and Lao look better than their original OVA counterparts. Fahrenheit was too pretty, Lao looked weird, and Lapp looked like a steretypical jock from American cartoons.
The non-mains seems to be alright because they didn't get the shitty yaoi designs.
But Fahrenheit was my favorite design.
Every nation has a different style, and some nations have multiple styles for the multiple services.
But yeah, fuck them. The best salutes have the palm facing downward.
Found a fujo
For some reason I find the change in salute kinda interesting. I'm pretty sure FPA didn't use palm facing forwards one in the OVA.
thanks for sharing your knowledge
We shall see if the change in the salute is consistent or just an error.
all the imperial characters speak only in German
I would forgive everything.
I expect there to be a German dub at some stage, just as Hellsing Ultimate was fun listening to German version. And then someone can just splice the language tracks in.
The new series will expose how badly written the story actually is.
The story will be the only thing that makes the new anime watchable.
This is bait.
I don't know how anyone can say no too this face.
This man had no problem saying no, when Fahrenheit begged him not to go into the obvious trap
what a Chad
Still better looking than Golden Wings
Let's pray he won't be redesigned by Kikuchi
VA of the day is Ikuya Sawaki, who is going to play Gregor von Mückenberger. Tomorrow's revel will be Ernest Mecklinger.
Oh this should be fucking good
Lapp, Fahrenheit and Lao look better than their original OVA counterparts
Lapp? Yes. Fahrenheit? Kill yourself.
I hate his guts. Fahrenheit died because Bittenfeld was retarded as fuck.
Fahrenheit defence fleet arrived, abandon the thread!
Tanaka and others are talking about DNT, book and cafe
I wish the frame wasn't so busy in every battle scene. I understand they're trying to convey a frantic fight, but not every single square inch of the screen has to contain an explosion or a laser beam.
It's CGshit. Camera work and composition go out the window, and you get lots of copy pasted models, spinning cameras and aftereffects. Enjoy.
Good riddance if you fuck off now.
Julian was a space basketball player in original, they are just returning to their roots
The first PV looked pretty clean though. Fuck, why must everything suck ass in this?
Yang's "I'm surrounded by morons" face
Surprisingly this PV looks a little better than the last one, I'm okay with the designs for the side cast. Maybe all hope is not lost.
Screenings of the first episode in cinema theaters are starting today.
Yang is laying at Reinhard's feet, like a war trophy
You already know what happens.
Yell out Yang dies
What if he'll survive this time?
I'm just browsing nip twitter. If they'll post some new screenshots, I'll post it.
I wonder if the first episode is going to have opening/ending songs. Latley first episodes usually don't have them
I think you're just remembering it with rose tinted glasses because it was shorter and didn't show much. You should have known what was coming.
I must say, Yang certainly doesn't look as smug as the first PV and character design artwork made him out to be.
He just hides it. Just look at that smug pose
That's not even the case. The space scenes looked legitimately pretty subdued in the first PV. Maybe it's because they didn't actually show any back-and-forth between the two forces, but they did look pretty clean. Now it's just special effects firing up everywhere. Did George Lucas direct this?
Doubt it. I watched the old anime 6 times and he died every time.
That's what I meant by saying they didn't show much. They didn't show any real fights. But you should know what kind of battle scenes you get with CGshit.
There are pictures from screening already, but I doubt if there is going to be anything interesting.
You just watched it wrong.
I was actually hoping they'd be able to keep that up, but I guess you're right. That's what I get for being optimistic.
If he watched in reverse Yang lives and Goldenbaum is the hero
Optimism died for me after the design reveals. Everything else has just been kicking the message lifeless body while it's down.
have only watched the first season of the original
Feels good not being overly biased against the new designs. I'm going to watch both side by side.
I tried to watch it in reverse, but dropped after what happened to Alexander.
