All hands, man your battle stations—a new fleet of Legend of the Galactic Heroes: Die Neue These episodes has been announced via a short promo video with Production I.G (PSYCHO-PASS, Haikyu!!) at the helm as the studio! 

The video, posted to the Shochiku YouTube channel, features a slew of characters and quotes from the series. Even if you can’t read Japanese, the ultra-dramatic score is enough to get you hyped for what’s next. 🔥

There’s no release date or broadcast info for the sequel series as of yet, but you can catch up on the English dub of Legend of the Galactic Heroes: Die Neue These, right here on Funimation!

Official synopsis: Legends clash again in the enthralling reboot of this classic space drama series! Caught in a 150-year-long war, interstellar nations reach the pinnacle of strategic combat at the hands of two genius leaders. Reinhard of the Galactic Empire and Yang of the Free Planets Alliance are prodigies driven by their own ideals, and on the battlefield of the universe, their rivalry knows no bounds.

The original anime adaptation of Yoshiki Tanaka’s sci-fi novel series was first released as a series of OVAs between 1988 and 1997, followed by several side stories in the following years. At 110 (+52 side story episodes!) episodes in total, Legend of the Galactic Heroes still reigns as the longest OVA series of all time!
