Must... not... get... hopes too up. Because Tytania was a disaster in all too many ways.
But if this happens, I will be a happy camper. Even the universe of LoGH is so interesting that I don't mind at all that they do a retelling with new characters. Or whatever they do; they said it's not a remake but follows the novels, so it will be... interesting.

But Noboru Ishiguro, director of Macross and LOGH, died about 2 years ago so this new work might not live to his high standards or his storytelling methods.

The problem with Tytania was that there wasn't enough material because unlike LOGH the novels weren't and still aren't finished, and that 26 episodes wasn't going to cut it for a large epic science fiction novel series.

Bad as it is, I could manage to finish Tytania. So if the new LOGH is at least the same level as Tytania, it'd be bearable. We are lacking epic space opera outside old Gundam materials.

Seeing as how I consider LoGH one of the finest sci-fi epics over all media genres, the new series will have a lot to answer for. I haven't even found a proper new space-faring sci-fi epic since BSG/Caprica. With the remake, the potential surely is there, so a lot hangs on the execution of the material. And that exactly is what has me concerned; Tytania started out good but then turned into boring eye-candy (the dukes, of lord...). So that's why I am hoping for at least Tytania+10% better. :P Guess we'll have to wait and see.

Haha, I haven't even heard about this until the link to ANN. Funny, this looks like it might be right down my alleyway. Anyone care to extrapolate their thoughts to me on why this is so good?

Any info on the novels as well would be great. And if they're better/worse/just plain different from the anime.

^I second this motion. The only thing I hear about this show is that it is "amazing" and classical music plays during the space battles....that's about it.

No matter what it will have to wait until I am done with Wolf's Rain and Cowboy Bebop, but I would put this on my "to-watch-list" if someone can explain the basic premise well enough to sound interesting.

If you enjoy medieval settings, feudal backstabbings, rise of underdogs, space warships, and tactical warfare using such warships, then you'd enjoy this. The animation and presentation, of course, is old school (since it's literally old).

you'll enjoy LOGH if you want to see both the flaws and advantages of a democratic and dictatorial government. there's also Yang Wenli's rants.(educational i tell ya.)

i've already finished the main series, along with the Golden Wings movie. dearest mother also watched this one, and she favors the Free Planets Alliance. are the other OVA series worth watching?

I am super excited for this. even if it does have Mamoru Miyano an Keiichi Suzumura? It's Setsuna S Seiei VS Shinn Asuka! also, they finally decided to make Yang's hair black. seriously, he's like a JOJO character sometimes. Blue, Black and then brown. XD

This is great news I thought the project was cancelled or permanent hiatus.

I don't like the bishification of Yang Wen Li, he looks too young. Or is the timetable different from where I'm thinking?

And the black hair... *snarls*... he looked cool in blue.

Oh well. I don't care. I will watch it just for the revamped Alliance ships and the Brunhilde. Oh, Brunhild. You look amazing. Not quite the original, but the new version still does justice to that vessel. But will they manage to reach the heights of the original anime?

yeah, i'm going to miss that cool blue. :D
Yang is older than Reinhard. i always forget that(and only remember whenever the narrator mentions either Admiral's age. go figure!) the redesign is just going makes it all the easier to forget that tidbit.

one thing i do hope they get back is NORIO WAKAMOTO. BURAAAH!! oh wait, wrong character!!!

those character designs almost killed me but I hope I can get used to it and also Kircheis face looks strage. Yang and Reinhard have the same face as well. The animation looks top notch and i noticed they changed the lasers from white/blue to red and it seems the ships have no shields

IIRC correctly, shields in the LOGH setting haven't reached their full potential. it was a bit like having paper as armor.
i've more or less accepted the new designs. and there's a fanart of the redesigned Yang with a much more relaxed expression. kinda works. :D

I don't think I'll be able to accept the new designs. None of them really look like themselves. And if we're going with bizarre hair colors like Kircheis, why is Yang's changed? Agh. *Closes eyes* Nevermind. We'll probably still have to wait another hundred years anyway for this to actually be released to us chattel.

I confess, I have never seen the old LoGH series, though I have been somewhat curious. That said, it's hard to judge from such a brief teaser, but I do like what I'm seeing. Will in all likelihood be checking this out.
Haven't had a new anime that I really wanted to see since Delta ended.
