Aah… Cold-blooded memory assassination.




The worst part seems to be that the girls didn't even get upgraded.

They did get "upgraded". Look at Frederica. She looks like the stereotypical girl manager in sports anime: pretty enough that fujoshi would want to self-insert with her but plain enough she's not a threat to yaoi pairing. The quintessential silent onlooker design.


Yeah but she's not a threat to yaoi pandering. She's ugly as fuck, basically.


Go take your pills.

I'm trying to give this a chance as much as I can and trying to detach myself from the old adaptation, but can't stop myself from nitpicking. The battle presentation is confusing and there's more CG than I'm comfortable with. Then I'm both unhappy that Reinhard sounds too generic and that Yang tries to sound like the original Yang (and partially succeeds), which I'm aware is hypocritical. All pretense is thrown out of the window the moment they have to scream, though. They can't keep the same range (Yang is more noticeable).

And I'm suspicious of how much they used the word "passive" to describe Yang's strategies this episode. Still, seeing Yang beat the odds is entertaining and I think one of the good things they did in the first episode as well as this one was the build-up to his on-screen debut.


It's been a while since I saw the original but I recall being amazed by the first battle.

The beautiful impact frames of lasers striking hulls, ships frames crumbling, shots of wreckages with rescue crew.

Not only do the cg ships look worse, but even stuff like laser volleys and explosions are all generic and lazy. It was pretty disappointing.
All that said, I expected as much going into this so I'm not feeling betrayed or anything.


>which I'm aware is hypocritical.
It's not hypocritical to not want generic or a copy.


Battle scenes in general were better before the advent of CG. Even if they were rare, I'd rather have no battle than a shit battle.

I'll be honest, the show itself wasn't actually all that bad on its own, even if the cheap CG scenes and the weird yaoi designs were very offputting early on. It's probably somewhere from mediocre to decent, and it would've stood on its own fine had it been its own thing. It's basically just the problem of the fact that they're using LoGH's name, and not living up to its L E G E N D A R Y status. Really I'm not sure they should've done this - I can't imagine them doing it well enough to have satisfied the hype around it anyway. Seems like all in all a bad idea. I suppose you can say that it's only mediocre because it piggybacked LoGH in the first place and I suppose you'd have a point, but eh. Just my two cents. Thoughts, anyone else?
