The Battle of Vermilion (Part Two) (Japanese: バーミリオンの死闘(後編)) is the 52nd episode of the Legend of Galactic Heroes OVA.



Yang Wen-li organises his fleet for a blitzkrieg directly at Reinhard von Lohengramm's flagship, the Brünhild. Reinhard divides his fleet into multiple layers of ships, rotating each layer once it has been broken through. Ivan Konev is killed in action when his fighter is lured into cruiser fire. Yang realises that it has become a battle of endurance if Reinhard's fleet is continuously reforming the front line. The Alliance fleet tricks the Imperial fleet into concentrating together for a final assault by dispatching a decoy squadron to an asteroid field, making it appear much larger in size. The bulk of the Alliance fleet then launches a surprise attack against the rear of the concentrated Imperial fleet. Reinhard is divided from his main force as that group is surrounded by Yang's fleet. Before the Yang Fleet can target the Brünhild however, the Müller Fleet returns on time to rescue the Brünhild and acts as a shield for Reinhard.


Memorable quotes

"If I run away in fear of Yang Wen-li here, those whom I have killed would mock me, from Hell to Valhalla, 'What kind of conqueror are you?' Do you mean for me to become a laughingstock?"

Reinhard von Lohengramm, to Arthur von Streit after the latter advised him to retreat in the face of overwhelming enemy fire and live to fight another day.
