Production I.G. Working On Legend of the Galactic Heroes Anime


Legend of the Galactic Heroes 001 - 20150702Soon, a legacy will begin anew, as fans take to the stars once more.

Earlier today, a new project in the Legend of the Galactic Heroes anime franchise was announced. The series, titled Legend of the Galactic Heroes Chapter IV: After the Clash, will be animated by Production I.G. Currently, the title is planned for a 2017 première.

Legend of the Galactic Heroes is a long-running anime series, based on Yoshiki Tanaka’s influential series of sci-fi novels. It was a passion project by late director Noboru Ishiguro (Macross, Megazone 23), and his Artland anime studio. Ishiguro spent over a decade adapting the works as OVAs and theatrical films. Over 100 installments were made between 1988 and 2000.

Sadly, he passed away in 2012, due to a lung infection.

Over the summer, Sentai Filmworks licensed the Legend of the Galactic Heroes anime series, while Viz Media added the original novels.
