If you’re a fan of the classic military sci-fi genre mixed with inter-galactic fights, then you’ll love the Legend of the Galactic Heroes anime.
Besides checking all the boxes of a typical space-themed anime, it adds a deep political twist, making it an excellent watch for all ages.
Recently, the franchise announced the third season for The New Thesis series, and the fans have been desperately waiting for it.
The series is a remake of the 1988 original series but focuses more on the protagonists Reinhard and Yang instead of the overall war.
We all are already super excited for it, and the franchise teasing us with visuals and trailers makes us anticipate it even more.
Legend of the Galactic Heroes: Die Neue These- Clash anime film trilogy has revealed the main visual for its summer 2022 premiere.
The movie will be released in three parts, with the first one out on March 4, the second on April 1, and the third on May 13.
[Main Visual Lifting] The main visual of “Legend of the Galactic Heroes: Die Neue These- Clash” has been lifted! The main characters of the Galactic Empire and the Free Planet Alliance come together, reminiscent of the fierce clash between Fortress Gaisburg and Fortress Iselloan.

The visual features Reinhard von Lohengramm and Yang Wenli in the center with their allies and friends on their respective sides. The others in the visual include Wolfgang Mittermeier, Julian Mintz, and more.
The story will follow the dispute between the Galactic Empire led by Reinhard and Free Planets Alliance led by Yang. While they are the central characters, both political entities have several key players.
Some of these crucial characters are willing to die for their people, and some won’t even bat an eye before betraying their brethren.
This is why you can never know who’ll show their true colors here, and the story keeps the audience in suspense until the very end.
We all know the plot anyway since it’s a remake, but the writers might change the climax a bit. This does seem far-fetched but very much possible to excite the fans and give them something different.
Even though all my summer plans will now be based around these three films, I don’t regret it even a bit.
