Legend of Galactic Heroes (OVA)

Legend of Galactic Heroes (Japanese: 銀河英雄伝説, Ginga Eiyū Densetsu), or LOGH, is the second and longest-running animated adaptation of Tanaka Yoshiki's Legend of Galactic Heroes series of novels. The series was released in direct home-video instalments during four separate periods between December 1988 and March 1997, the OVA comprises 110 episodes, which together total more than 2800 minutes of animation, and has seen multiple releases on both DVD and Blu-ray formats.

The main Legend of Galactic Heroes OVA series is divided into four series:

In addition to this first animated adaptation, LOGH has also been adapted into a new ##-episode animated television series, three OVA films, a prequel Gaiden OVA series, and a musical stage production.

Currently, there appear to be no plans for any of the LOGH animated productions to be released on physical media outside of Japan. An official iOS app exists, allowing users to download subtitled episodes of the first series for US$3.99/ep though the app and encode quality is considered sub-par.

Summary

For over 150 years in the distant future two interstellar human states – the Galactic Empire and the Free Planets Alliance – were embroiled in what seem to be a never-ending war within the Milky Way galaxy. Out from the ravages of war emerged two young stars whose deeds would make them worthy of the appellation of Galactic Heroes. They are Reinhard von Lohengramm from the Galactic Empire and Yang Wen-li from the Free Planets Alliance.

Episode list

Series 1

The first series covers volumes 1 and 2 of the original novels, adding some prequel stories (episodes 9 and 11) and original content (parts of episodes 13 and 14). The main theme is Reinhard von Lohengramm's rise to power within the Galactic Empire, mirrored by Yang Wen-li's unwillingness to go beyond his military duties and assume a similar position in the Free Planets Alliance.

Series 2

The 28-episode second series covers volumes 3 to 5 of the original novels. With the overthrow of the Goldenbaum Dynasty and the defeat and occupation of the Alliance, Reinhard achieves almost all his goals. One of the main themes is the comparison between a corrupt democracy and an efficient dictatorship, and the moral difficulties of reconciling the two.
