Recently finished this series. I don't mind the silly tactics and the overuse of historical quotes (albeit they did leave a sour taste) but the lack of technological advancement makes the show inconsistent with its space setting. That's a flaw that I cannot ignore.
The characters are cardboard cutouts and that hurts the storytelling.
Why is this show so overrated?
The "outdated" technology actually has a plot explanation that you didn't pay attention to - signal jamming technology makes coordinated movement 1800's levels of bad.
The minor characters tend toward cutouts but each has a unique thing going and that's enough in a show of this magnitude. I would absolutely love to hear how Yang Wen-Li is a cardboard cutout however.
>lack of technological advancement makes the show inconsistent with its space setting
They pretty much explain this in the first season. Yang starts talking about the push button wars and how most of the technological advancement came from counter measures to various types of radars and jammers.
>The characters are cardboard cutouts and that hurts the storytelling.
Which ones? It cant be all of them.
The Empire basically forced the people to live like Baravian peasants. FPA lives in more modern cities. House design was probably pretty low on the priority list of the creators though.
I love this gif
might as well
Truniht did more damage with words than any soldier with a gun or ship.
we shall always have each other /a/non
there are so many of these in the show
The particle explanation was a plot convenience so there could be old tactics used in space.
Most of them were and they didn't have much character depth. Heck, there's even a character that's in the show just to complain about women.
In fairness, Kircheis DID love Annerose. He just died before he had any chance to be with her.
Also I need the one about Reinhard saying that people who based their accomplishments on their birth and genetics are worthless.
I think it's fair to say that the characters aren't as deep as they could be, and that there are a lot of plot and setting elements that could be fleshed out. However, the scale of the show is absolutely immense, and I think the depth is acceptable when that's taken into consideration. LoGH is very much about the big picture, and I think it hits the important points very successfully.
>just to complain about women
You better not be talking about Reunthal
>Watching all of LoGH in just a few days.
I would stretch it out to a week at least
What's the best releaseout there for this? LD? BR?
>watch everything except Golden Wings
It's not the worst thing. I quite liked some of it despite most being absolutely terrible.
At least the threads can't get any worse after the fanbase explodes with the new adaptation
I took half a year to watch it. Dear God was it worth it.
I can't help but think that's a mistranslation and is meant to say liberators. Because I know what episode that's form.
There are BDs, but well...
It felt kind of unnecessary to me, I feel the Gaiden demonstrates the bond between Reinhard and Kircheis better plus don't really like the art change/new voice actors but that is nitpicking.
It's true that the show is immense but that's how it tricks some into thinking that it's great.
It's kinda like how people think ASOAIF is good because of the the amount of characters, factions and plotlines. With that said, LOGH is shorter than ASOIAF so that's a plus for the former.
I feel LoGH is has a tighter pace and keeps you interested because it is focused mainly on two opposing forces, ASOAIF just seems to have lost direction a bit and I remember Feast for Crows feeling reaaaaallllly fucking long.
There are definitely some parallels between LoGH and GoT, but LoGH got a lot of things right that GoT utterly failed at.
I think there's a lot of very good quality content in LoGH, and it's consistently good enough that the whole show holds up very well. It moves at a very quick pace too, so anything that's subpar tends to be over quickly, and then you're back into good content again.
I'm not talking about GoT. ASOAIF refers to the books not the shitty tv series that's full of inconsistencies.
LOGH feels good when you're marathonning the show but I doubt it would be the same for the people waiting for the releases back in the 80s.
meh, no one really seemed to complain about it. Its not like they were actually living in 18th century conditions. They still had electricity, and practically any modern vice they needed. Its just that they adopted a certain style.
In fact a lot of Europeans live in houses just like those.
>The Takarazuka Revue is a Japanese all-female musical theater troupe
At first I was going to complain, but I realized that the casting is probably spot on.
>twf no Reinhardo waifu
>The particle explanation was a plot convenience so there could be old tactics used in space.
There's nothing really wrong with this. It's just part of the setting.
>Most of them were and they didn't have much character depth.
That's because most of them are merely supporting characters, and these supporting characters are pretty much simple people. Do you really want to know more about Poplan's past or what goes on in Eisenach's head? Sure, it might be interesting, but that would ruin the narrative of the series. They don't really matter when it comes to the central conflict. LOGH just gave personality to the supposed nameless, faceless background character, and I don't really see how that's such a bad thing.
It's almost been a year since the announcement. We should be getting something soon. Hopefully it's an OVA and not a TV work, so the likes of CR won't pick it up therefore shitting up these threads with newfags and stupid questions.
That being said if it's an OVA we can say goodbye to day 1 subs. Unless CA is still a group that does thing, perhaps they'll even revive for this project.
Not anymore. The re-re;eased 4 volumes last year with different covers at a "budget price" (about 200-250 euros) they also re-released 20 single volumes with 2-3 episodes each (about 30-50 euros each)
Always BD, while some of the replaced footage is a little out of place, it's replacing scenes that look god awful in comparison. They didn't just replace scenes willy-nilly. These scenes needed to be reanimated.
I just wish the Gaidens were about people other than Yang and Reinhardt. Sure they're the main characters and have pretty interesting backstories. But there are certain individuals and groups that deserved the Gaiden screentime than them. Like Mitts and Reuenthal or the FPA's Spartanian fights. Heck even another D. Sinclair documentary about the Galactic Federation and Rudolph's rise to power.
>FPA's Spartanian pilots.
Just kill me now /a/
Or a private eye on Phezzan. Wouldn't that be swell? No big wars, no larger than life characters.
We got the 730 mafia though.
>tfw when that awful animation made the battles look even more stupid during the 2nd battle of Tiamat.
