new episode was very good, not great. Probably almost the same quality as the original. I'll grade it a B+

Honestly liked Rubinsky's mutton chops. Hoping they cut the Terra cultists out and he's the apex schemer that gets rolled.

I hope they donít get cut but are written like an actual faction and not 2d cutouts like the OVA.

Unless itís in the background I donít see them having an opportunity to appear given the runtime on this series tho.

These books may not be the best written but thereís something really charming about them.

quote:

As Viscount Albrecht von Bruckner, author of The Galactic Empire: A Prehistory, expressed it: ďIf you banished all the perverts and homosexuals from history and the arts, human culture would never have advanced to such a degree.Ē

He's 29 in the book and I'm pretty sure he was in the ova as well.

ah, i just took the dates from the wiki since i didn't remember the OVA (up to what i've seen) giving any helpful info. 29 fits even moreso with the new design to me, when the OVA one seems well past 30. anime is weird in that way though.

There's a running gag in the OVA about Attenborough turning 30 and still being a virgin, while Poplan is younger and Schenkopf is older and both are hooking up with the same girls. Poplan gives him poo poo about it and Schenkopf plays it off like he's too old and busy getting laid to care.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OgjQmtWZwks

I don't remember all the timeskips or what his official age is at each part of the OVA, but Schenkopf is presented as an ambiguously older/mid-30s character compared to the younger guys like Poplan and Attenborough. That's definitely not the case in the new series, though I'm not sure if it matters considering they don't have time to put in all the banter that the age differences created context for.

I really like Dusty. He's a dork, but despite not playing fifth dimensional ultra chess with the genius big boys he's smart and competent. That sort of awkward-yet-earnest companion isn't really filled by anyone else Yang interacts with regularly on a personal level. Cazzelnu is mostly a disapproving father figure, Julian is an adoring son figure, Frederica is, well, the love interest, and Schenkopf is basically the devil on Yang's shoulder. Dusty is sort of the only character who comes off as just one of Yang's friends.

Anime keeps being good. I actually like both Frederica's and Jessica's designs in this version.

Somehow after 10 years the scene with the council or w/e pining for war made me legit angry while before I was kind of ambivalent about the whole deal.

The woman on the council who really wants the war seemed like her head was drawn wrong somehow like more head than face. I do like the slightly expanded focus on Jessica Edwards in terms of portraying her rise to office and establishing that she's important to the anti war opposition that Yangs sympathetic to

She was drawn an awful lot like the bad lady from unicorn. I donít think it was wrong, I think itís probably character design cribbing

While I do like this a lot so far, I'm not really feeling the empire invasion arc. Omitting completely the story lines on the planet both with Kessler's arc on the planet and then later the arc with the farmer, his daughter and the helpful FPA guy and then betrayal. Removing all that kind of guts the whole arc of the context of the citizens stuck in the fear of two massive impersonal war machines. And definitely the battles seem to be more chaotic and lacking the strategic 4D chess (well 2D) of the original anime
