The legend is coming back. Those of the anime fans who have known the industry for a little longer than a few months, and devote some free time to studying popular TV series that have been released long enough, can already guess what will be discussed. Legend of the Galactic Heroes, originally released on January 8, 1988 and broadcast on March 17, 1997, returns to the screen in a new quality. The first part of the updated Legend should be released in April 2019.
When the “Legend of Heroes of the Galaxy 2 season” comes out
The second season of the anime “Legend of Heroes of the Galaxy” is scheduled for release in the form of 3 films, the first of which will be shown to the audience in Japanese cinemas on September 27, 2019. The following parts will be released on October 25, 2019 and November 29, 2019.
If you even catch a glimpse of the first series, you can imagine what to expect in the novelty. The creators of the series retain the style of the Rookie and the first Legend of the heroes of the Galaxy, so Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu season 2 will be performed in the genre of space opera. Drawing will also be preserved in almost the maximum volume – in the teaser and photos that are already available to users, the influence of modern style is felt, but the overall style is preserved, the characters are recognizable. Although many fans of the franchise, this pattern is unusual.
In the center of the story is Admiral Reinhard von Lohengram. Events, as before, will develop around the confrontation between the Galactic Reich and the Union of Free Powers. The main character will unite the world and change the existing state of things with the help of his associates. Together with them, he will have to go through many things to achieve the goal.
Timing of the renewed series is still unknown.
Description of the original anime season
As in the new version, the plot is twisted around the confrontation between the two powers. The spectators were waited with perfectly drawn battles, the development of the storyline, a detailed description of the character and life of the secondary heroes.
Yes, the emphasis was mainly not on the main character – he is a participant in the events, those who make the basic decisions. But at the same time, the interaction of heroes with each other, the development of their destinies and the way their decisions affect the flow of events is more significant.
What can you expect from the second season of the Legend of the Galactic Heroes?
First of all, the anime wants to recommend the fans of the first series – the sequel may turn out to be a novelty, then one of the good options for viewing – the authors knowingly decided to use the genre of space opera. From “Legend of the Galactic Heroes season 2” is expected:
