Legends clash again in the enthralling reboot of this classic space drama series! Caught in a 150-year-long war, interstellar nations reach the pinnacle of strategic combat at the hands of two genius leaders. Reinhard of the Galactic Empire and Yang of the Free Planets Alliance are prodigies driven by their own ideals, and on the battlefield of the universe, their rivalry knows no bounds.
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.
Sentai Filmworks will release the original Legend of the Galactic Heroes in a $799.98 Blu-Ray boxed set this July.
