Legend of the Galactic Heroes 19: Yang’s Fleet Moves Out

July 1, 2017 § 1 Comment

Hello, here I discuss episode 19, an Alliance episode where Yang responds to Reinhardt’s operation to implant a bunch of imperial agents who want to disrupt the Free Planet Alliance. It’s pretty cool to see the FPA fall apart and Yang try to salvage the situation.

There’s a lot of politicking in this episode. I suppose that’s not unique to this one!

Ironically I imagine Bernie Sanders would probably love this show, since it resonates with his whole “young, capable people being proactive in politics” appeal.

This episode of Legend of the Galactic Heroes’s Achilles heel.

This is really jarring. (a problem of the remastering)
This is not what a battle looks like

Legend of the Galactic Heroes Episode 14: Liberation of the Frontiers

In this episode, we learn why Scorched Earth tactics violate human rights, but that said all of this is over contested territories between two different systems of coercion. I mean, the romanticism of frontier life is the libidinal economy of colonialism, but whatever. lol. A lot of us dream of a better life and I’m equally as guilty (if we could even say that dreaming is a sin… but our dreams should be bigger than having a wife and kids on our own planet…)

Enough of my anarchist ways in the comments.

vlcsnap-2015-12-01-08h57m26s474This is when freedom and equality are just words, and what are words when compared to people getting food?

Let’s hope that Yang Wen-Li and the gang survive this stupid war.

This episode is about the political opportunism that comes with people trying to gain seats at the highest level of political authority, looking back there’s a few more things I should’ve talked about, but this episode was already almost the length of the actual episode so it’s whatever, if you have a comment feel free to leave one below!

I talk about some comments in this episode. I don’t think this episode was up to par.

vlcsnap-2015-09-08-20h36m52s067

It was strange because when I first watched this episode a few weeks ago it was a lot more interesting, but on this watch-through it was kind of meh, even though I do think this episode’s set-up is kind of funny, although it’s mostly a woman’s jealousy gets exploited by another noble who hates Reinhardt.

Susanna is so precious.

Legend of the Galactic Heroes Episode 10: Jessica’s Battle

September 5, 2015 § 1 Comment

In this episode I mumble through the episode where Yang returns to Thernusen, the place where his old military academy was, and he encounters Jessica Edwards and struggles with survivors guilt, especially when thinking through his relationship with Jessica and his best friend Jean Robert Lap.

There’s also a Char’s Counterattack-esque moment in here that I find interesting to think about, especially in how it contrasts with the critique of the media/political cycle.

This episode was awesome, got to see some more action in the Kaiser’s court from a man who opposed it and was ostracized and got to see some interesting background information on the Kaiser.

There was also some hilarious looking laptops. vlcsnap-2015-07-16-21h46m36s356

Today’s episode is about Oberstein and Lohengramm’s political ambitions, maneuvering on the political terrain in the Kaiser’s court in the wake of the Iserlohn Invasion. It’s pretty good.

This episode (of the anime) is pretty funny, I was giggling throughout a lot of it given the seriousness of the music and the laid-back attitude that Yang Wen-li had in the face of a suicide mission.

I also noticed there’s a strange mechanical sound at the beginning of the episode, that’s my refrigerator, I didn’t feel like re-recording so the sound is still in there. My bad.

His coronation speech is hilarious.

Here’s another installment in our episode-to-episode coverage of Legend of the Galactic Heroes.

This episode establishes the backstory of Siegfried Kircheis and Reinhardt Von Lohengramm as they receive promotions from the King for their exploits at the Battle of Astate.

We see Reinhardt, motivated with contempt for the decadent nobles who ask their subjects to die for them while they host flamboyant parties at the palace and take from those beneath them.

Legend of the Galactic Heroes Episode 3: Birth of the 13th Fleet

April 23, 2015 § 2 Comments

Here’s another installment in our episode-to-episode coverage of the SF anime classic, Legend of the Galactic Heroes.

I really do like how small both Jessica Edwards and Secretary of Defense Truniht are, the enormous stage adds to that overwhelming sense of producing, via imaginative and physical labor, the monolithic idea of the nation-state with no actual referent other than the small people who work with and confront each other.

vlcsnap-2015-04-23-23h17m22s540

This image is also pretty gloomy, because it is the second to last shot of the episode before the credits roll. Yang Wen Li becomes the sort of reluctant hero, not just out of survivors guilt but because the category of hero is part of the state propaganda machine that is used by those in charge to get Yang to do what they want him to do, to either die or to do something heroic to increase their popularity.

Look at the twp calenders I mentioned. Two different political systems. Remember what the dude from Gundam said? Isn’t this just a Gundam show now? But without the newtypes and the mobile suits? So a better show…

I need to find a better way to watch this because the aspect ratio is all messed up. What is going on.
