you can read the novel if you manage to find it somehow or if you translate it yourself,
otherwise the chart is accurate, the original series is where the heart is at.

the remake had some problems and in many ways i think it skims on few aspects that made the series appealing and engaging, it also obviously has different pacing due to licensing and other reasons.


Watch the original. The remake is abridged and only covers a tiny fraction of the story. It kinda stops when it gets good, and cuts out entire side stories that are important later on.

Original for sure. Then watch the remake as it's still good.


I haven't watched the new one yet, but I just looked it up and it says it's only 12 episodes. I just don't think they could tell the whole story in 12 episodes. The original one is amazing mostly for its political and social commentary, and you have to see how things play out over time for you to really get the full effect. Watch the original.


Start with the original series for sure. I was skeptical at first myself, since I wasn't sure what to expect and the first dozen or so episodes are still developing the story and takes a while to get into, but afterwards I was really engrossed into it.

I heard the original novels are thin in comparison to the original anime, which adds much more to the series
And on that subject, what do people think of the author's other works? Like Tytania or his novels based on Chinese history? How were the Arslan anime/manga remakes?


I watched the Arslan remake prior to watching the original OVA and I much prefer the latter. The remake felt like a chore to watch and makes every event take longer than it has to be to fill out the 26 episodes. Either the story is just not meant to be a full-length TV series or the people behind the remake wanted to milk out the series and make a second season so they tried to make the first one as slow-paced as possible.


In my case it's the complete opposite of >>28599. I watched the OVA before the remake and found it pretty dull. The remake on the other hand was way more fun. And story-wise it goes way further compared to the original (iirc the OVA is fully covered by the first 8 or so episodes of the remake and then it's all new).


To use up this thread,
there are similiar mangas as well,
Particulary ones concerning history or fictional novels.

Historie has decent structure and is nicely drawn. the story is focused on the era of alexander the great focusing on alternative retelling of some events, but not too far fetched.

Wolfsmund might seems bit unusual, but it is compeling and has it's moments, it's about the struggle in 13th century Switzerland.

The three kingdoms saga has similitaries with logh, but it's thematically different.

Then there's vinland saga and some other works that i don't yet know.
Have watched new arslan senki, but i didn't enjoy it as much as ginga eyiu.


I want to continue watching it, it's good, but the damn thing has such a slow pace that after one or two episodes I just feel drained.

a lot of people have already made some good points about the merits of the original vs the remake. The brevity of the remake is of course a negative, however it is not the most prominent negative in my opinion. LOGH is wonderful because of the depth of its characters and story telling, its like reading Middlemarch or Pride and Prejudice. The remake streamlines and simplifies many characters which erodes the show in an almost offensive way.

I watched the first three episodes and bailed on the show because they didn't seem interesting at all. I eventually decided to watch a little more since so many people praise this show so much, and am truly glad I did. The scale of the show is massive, and so takes a long time to set up. Things really jump off around 12 episodes in and by 20 you literally can't stop watching.

My advice: keep watching. If by 12 episodes you don't like it then drop it, but don't dump it after just a few episodes.


the new series has a gay artstyle and cuts out loads and is far from complete

the OVA series is almost perfect, watch that. It's like Game of Thrones in space (but without the sex scenes for normalfags and it doesn't decline in quality)


I strongly suggest you wach the gaiden before the original series, the original only gets better if you watch it first IMO.


Original novels have been translated in English by VIZ iirc, I don't know how you missed that.


The remake isn't exactly an horribly awful show, but it's immensely inferior to the original in pretty much every aspect other than, arguably, consistency of animation. I don't think it's worth anyone's time.
Forget it ever existed and follow >>29003's advice on trying the original out. Many people suggest not binging it too hard since it's so dense and I kinda agree. Watching a couple episodes per day at a comfy time is the optimal way to enjoy the old wine.

That's bad advice. The Gaiden OVA's are mostly vignettes from the character's pasts, with only a little bit of (frankly redundant) backstory for Yang and Reinhard. They were clearly meant for people that were already attached to these characters and wanted to spend some more time with them (specially since so many of them die), and if that's the first thing you watch you certainly won't fit into that category.


if anyone is struggling to find a torrent or just want an easy one:

btw thanks for introducing me to this.


I tried really hard to like it, but it was so slow and there was so much to follow.


Legend of the Galactic Heroes was one the first shows where a fictional character dying felt like losing someone real that I actually knew.
Maybe it's because I watched the entire thing slowly over a long period of time, but it's like I really got to know these people, like they were an actual part of my life.
I won't mention names to avoid spoilers, but I miss the six of them so much.


I feel you, my dude.
RIP in peace to them all.

Was he one of us?



When I try to find what drives my actions and choices, I truly can't find the root of it. I don't know what finding it would even look like, the process is completely obscured to me.
Which makes me wonder if either:
a) The author has never even done that kind of introspection
b)He has had some extreme insight which I've been unable to get.
He's making such a bold statement, as if he definitely knew what drives (and what is) an individual, or as if he is completely ignoring these questions.


Notice how it's only commendable to say such a thing when you are a blonde-haired, blue-eyed handsome Aryan prince/king/knight.


Guess every culture tries to remake/update its classic stories for newer audiences..


I don't remember the plot exactly, but seems like a 1% moral coping mechanism.
I mean he basically died of genetic anime aids, so much for his individualism.


He was sending hundreds of thousands of people to death waging his wars. It's obvious he has some superiority complex going.


but 110 episodes…..


I feel awful that I can't stomach this series enough to finish it; it's amazing, but it's so goddamn slow and exhausting to sit through.


>I strongly suggest you wach the gaiden before the original series, the original only gets better if you watch it first IMO.

Totally agree to that. The OVAs really work like beautyful prequels which enrich the main story massively. Do yourself a favour and dont follow that chart.

Some shows need to be updated…


>110 episodes is too long!
>Bro do you watch One Piece? It gets good after 400 episodes.

I've never seen an anime that has more than 50 episodes.

Give it a try?


would an authentic, legit Scooby Doo anime be great or cringe?

I tried getting into LOGH, but it was way too slow.


Very much depends on how it's executed I think, there are some on the theme, like Ghost Hunt, it didn't turn out too bad.


It's high schoolers going around and solving mysteries with their mascot, it certainly could appeal to a Japanese audience somehow. I heard Mystery Inc was decent.
>I tried getting into LOGH, but it was way too slow.
I'm still watching it, but the plot apparently really sets forth around the 14th episode.
