Ben Broadbent’s review published on Letterboxd:
Fact- Legend of the Galactic Heroes is my favorite anime of all time
Also fact- this is one hour of Legend of the Galactic Heroes
If you found this review you are either one of my followers or you are thinking of watching Legend of the Galactic Heroes. Either way, this is a great place to start the series as this happens just a little bit before the first episode of the original show and doesn't spoil anything of the show itself.
This is a great taste test for the series as this has the battles, strategies, and interesting characters that make the show what it is. The animation and the music choice are phenomenal as well so if you enjoyed this, you will love the show.
