The biggest problem with LoGH is that everything goes Reinhard's way. Even Kircheis biting it helped turn him from a selfish asshole into someone more merciful and patient.

It would've been much more interesting if Kircheis had lived and eventually led a coup against Reinhard after the latter turned into too much of a Rudolph. Or you could even have Reinhard dying before Reuntal's rebellion and Reuntal amassing power for himself and trying to court Annerose to produce a legitimate heir.

There's just so much potential that was squashed to make Reinhard's short reign go as smoothly as possible.

The biggest problem is the show and tell and fluctuating budget between episodes.

Every charcter in Lotgh is either extremely competent and honorable or a sleazy incompetent piece of shit. I mean sure there were people like Reunthal and Oberstein but even they had more tragic romanticized flaws than human ones.

A bunch of cult lunatics fucked him at numerous turns, assassinated the only person Reinhard felt was his equal and got one of his Admiral's to revolt against him.

Reinhard repeatedly loses to Yang Wenli, dies young, has Reunthal rebel against him, has Kirchies die, has his sister distanced, can't make any fucking friends, and loses to fucking Julian of all people.

Just because his reign is ultimately secured doesn't mean that things always went his way.
They didn't. He just made the best of what happened.

>>138597391
It would be a living hell, just imagine it to be the empire equivalent of "What would Yang Wenli do" episodes.

The Dusty pic is just a throwaway frame that happens when Yang and co. escape from Heinessen. It's probably just there for fun and because Dusty is a dweeb.

The other pic is from the Duelist gaiden.

It's basically pro-imperial Japan propaganda.
>>
>>138597528
Neither the Goldenbaum dynasty nor Reinhard's dynasty are anything like imperial Japan.
>>
>>138597777
Except Imperial Japan based its constitution on that of Prussia and the Galactic Empire also borrows heavily from Prussia and Prussian Culture.
>>
>>138598016
So the natural conclusion is that it's more like prussia and less like imperial japan, yes?
>>
>>138598340
Everybody knows that Japan wanted to be like Germany.

Then Germany lost, and Japan's new senpai is the US.

'MURICA!

Really

Hell, he also failed to kill the old kaiser
He got the empire but then so what... ? he attacked alliance due to borerom, losing the battle vs yang and winning the war by embrassing subterfuge...

Dude was depressed/mouring all the damn time as kaiser, only combat and marriage gave him some light

he had a very shit life in happiness department

Literally the only character to defeat Yang Wenli in the show besides Yang Wenli himself.

You don't need to be a warrior to be based as fuck.

HOFF KAISERIN!

It really disappoints me that he's not in the novels. He was such a fun guy.

>>138603393
He's an original character? That was unexpected.

I hope he'll be in the remake.
>>
>>138596089
No that's actually one of the interesting points of the show, Reinhard is a warlord who wants to stroke his ego through battle, and while he does win every battle, he never defeats Yang and thus his ego is consistently hurt. Despite the fact that Reinhard seizes the universe, achieving his goal, he's not very happy. Kircheis is gone, his sister won't see him, there's no more battles for the time being and he still wants that one chance to repair his ego.
Kircheis would have been able to keep Reinhard sensible, hell even without him Reinhard didn't go full Rudolf, so i found your scenario difficult to believe. Also Kircheis isn't that interesting of a character.

Reuenthal is just like Reinhard except he has no goal. Reinhard at least wanted to seize the empire to free his sister, that's a goal with motivation. Reuenthal doesn't actually want to deal with the consequences of beating Reinhard, he just want's to fight (among other things).

You're forgetting the only other character to see through Yang's bullshit
>>
>>138603602
If i recall correctly, Yang was just in charge of his fleet in that battle, and that battle was the huge Alliance invasion, so there was a lot of fleets there. The only time Kircheis had contact with Yang in that battle was when he had him outnumbered 3-1 and Yang was able to withdraw without a hitch
>>
>>138603602

>Implying he saw through anything and just acted as he would in that situation.
>Implying Yang would've held out to win against the odds even without Kircheis late, explosive entry.
>Implying Yang knew anything about zephyr particles and their application.
>Implying Kircheis didn't use zephyr particles during Castrop Rebellion to destroy the Artemis necklace and had the intelligence and experience to utilize it against the FPA.

Kircheis didn't see through shit, Yang got stumped by zephyr particles. If it weren't for them then Yang's rear would've been protected.

She shouldn't even be considered Kaiserin.

She's literally just a regent until Alexander is old enough.
