Legend of the Galactic Heroes, episodes 3 and 4. Next, Dragon Ball Z

Also known as Ginga Eiyuu Densetsu

After watching 4 episodes of Legend of the Galactic Heroes I think I can see why people like it a little more clearly.

Here are some of the reasons why the show is good

It certainly is a character driven show. And unlike many other shows, this one does not discriminate bad guys. There is a war, two sides are killing each other. Both sides have tons of stupid people, cowards and generally bad characters. And both sides have good guys. It is hard to tell whom you like more, that is the good thing about this anime. It makes you want to see what will happen next, because no matter what happens on the battleground it will be good for some guys you like, and bad for some other guys you like.

Speaking of morons, here, there are plenty of those on each side..

This anime tries to be realistic, as I probably mentioned in my last post. It tries to give people real motivations and follow the rules of logic. But then again, as I probably said, this anime is not smart, so don’t expect too much from it. I would say that sometimes it is clearly a fault of the director or the original creator. If you have seen episode 4 you know what I mean. A boy jumps into the middle of a party, fires a gun, guards get there and the boy just runs away. You know, it is so easy, why not do that. But if you can pass those minor bad directed details, then you can enjoy the show. Which I have done.

Where else would you see such a scene. Not just one shot, but a good chunk of the third episode took plates in that hall.

All in all, I like this show. I will watch it one day. Next in my list is Dragon Ball Z. See you then (^_^)/

  1. Kinda related: Is it not weird to 1st watch Dragon Ball Z and THEN Dragon Ball? Because you will be like: “Whose that dude in orange suit? What’s that ball on kid’s head? Whose that green dude?”

    • Haha, yeah I know : D You see, that is the reason why I did it this way. I wanted to know, if it is ok to watch DBZ without watching DB first. I was wondering if I would be able to understand what is going on.

      And You know, it is ok. I have already watched some episodes of DBZ and so far I have no problems. I understand that Piccolo used to be the antagonist, that Goku defeated him and I know what dragon balls can be used for. It is a pretty straight forward show =)

      At any rate, I am only watching up to 5 episodes, so it doesn’t really matter which show I watch first. Five episodes of Dragon Ball aren’t going to make a difference.

  2. oh wow you have katekyo hitman reborn aka khr in your take a peek list. Just a warning bro, do not sit through the first 5 episodes. Just watch the 1st episode and then jump to episode 20 because those episodes are boring and they feel like a children’s cartoon. This is a weird anime, you would have to go through a lot of crap before you see things get really serious and action start up. But once you get to episode 75 the story heats up tenfold, thats when it gets really awesome!

    • Ok, thanks for the warring : D I’ll check out a few of episodes in the beginning and then go for the episode 20, though it is really bizarre to watch a show in such order xD
