Anime Description: Legend of the Galactic Heroes

Legend of the Galactic Heroes is an epic in every sense of the word. Spanning over a massive 150 OVA Episodes, LotGH tells the ongoing story of a massive war staged in our own Milky Way Galaxy during the 35th Century.

During this period, two galactic factions reigned supreme in this tumultuous age, The Galactic Empire and the Free Planets Alliance. However, disagreements soon led to war, in which the two factions have fought each other for 150 years.

The main characters, Reinhard von Müsel and Yang Wenli are soldiers on opposite sides, each with their own hopes and aspirations for the future. The saga follows the destiny of these two heroes and the many people around them, as they learn the true nature of the war that affects their lives and everything that drives it forward.
