If space opera obeyed physics, most of the ship scenes would have the inhabitants floating helplessly around the ship. Which I contend would make everything better.

Nah, the ships would just look different and be designed to generate gravity by rotation.

Sorry, Reinhard is too busy having the hots for his sister, to be interested in a homosexual romance. Seriously though, its just a very close friendship. Just because someone is in a close relationship doesn't mean they have sexual feelings for each other.

To the earlier sci-fi discussion, the only part of the series that really went full Star Trek for me was (season4) Rubinsky's brainbomb. There was no precedent for anything like that in the series and took me right out of things for a minute. Other than that bit everything else seemed fairly physically realistic.

I bet if someone really wanted to and had the cash, they could probably rig up something similar to that right now in the present.

Hello twists aren't the sign of good writing. Foreshadowing is, on the other hand, a very effective narrative technique, even if it's right there in your face.

It managed to build your dread leading up to that episode, did it not?

Didn't you hear Zorak? they got M. Night Shyamalan to direct a live action adaptation of Legend of Galactic Heroes. The twist is that Reinhard was actually his sister all along.

Hadn't Julian already proven his willingness to shed blood for his ideals? The continuation of the battle is completely unneccessary. It demonstrates his bloodlust and little else.
I think that was more the author trying to show off how awesome and special Julian is more than anything else. It was pretty out of character for Reinhard. Julian had become a little bit of a Mary Sue by the end of the series.

Episode 100 spoiler

oberstein.jpg

This is a fundamental misunderstanding of Oberstein's character. Oberstein is actually really good at interacting with people and getting them to do what he wants them to do. Oberstein doesn't want to be liked and sees himself as a necessary evil. Maintaining friendships would just hinder him from completing his objectives.

In my search for images from LOTGH you obviously come across stuff like tumblr/other posts/etc and the relationship of Reinhard & Kircheis is always the one brought up but never Kircheis & Annerose, which I mean clearly he was in love with her and Reinhard knew that as well. Maybe Reinhard is gay and loved Kircheis beyond their friendship, but I always saw Kircheis as just being devoted to Reinhard since childhood and his true love Annerose telling him to take care of her brother + sheer ambition of Reinhard that has even the best admirals awestruck made Kircheis believe they could accomplish the incredibly lofty dreams he had. I never saw the OVA's prior to Conquest, so I don't know if any type of romance happens between them but I wouldn't think they would have something in OVA and not anime itself. It's an extremely unique kind of uh 'love-triangle.'

Fan art rarely matches the actual relationships in a series. If fanart was accurate, then Supernatural is a show about incestuous brothers.

Kircheiss and Annerose both loved each other, and that's one of the reasons she is depressed for most of the series. She got the person she was in love with killed because she told him to protect his brother.
