in a loop Legend of Galactic Heroes Beginning with Geiersberg Castle completely appearing on its way to the people of Iserlohn, it is perhaps a little surprising that the real sight is to see Yang work his way out of dealing with this pesky government investigation. The fact that Yang is coming out isn’t surprising in itself, half the main focus of the series as it is, should continue to drive somehow at this point. But there is still a lot of gratification watching this petty falsity of a sham trial collapse as a distraction. It served as a dramatic device to keep Yang away from the big battle of heightening tension, modeled as a device with writing and characters within the plot curating them for their own ends. This makes it amusing enough in that reliable old LOGH The method, though, formally comes together and resolves may not have the same spice that was carried over the past week to make this back section of this sub-arc as effective as the previous section.
First of all, I feel the need to veer into a topic I wouldn’t touch otherwise Neue die these I continue. The adaptive sensibilities in the new anime, and the choices made regarding material reversal from the novels, have shaken the same compared to the old OVAs many times before. These comparisons come up very clearly in this episode, which lacks two key elements. First, any part of Frederica and Macongo’s efforts to investigate Yang’s whereabouts resulted in violent intervention from the Allied National Cavalry Corps, save for a few notes about them apparently being pursued as they navigate the hostilities of the government bureaucracy. There are certainly still threats from the powers that be regarding their snooping around, but it’s the kind that has been crafted within the legal system. Aside from removing the instant action element that was present in the previous version, this ends up by chance to show the raw difference in the state of Alliance Democracy at this point in the story, which Bewcock is commenting on here. So it’s not much of a change that I feel should be treated as “good” or “bad”, rather than simply indicating the difference such a shift can make in something like a setting.
Admittedly, there was another change with far less risk, but I can’t allow another one to go unnoticed because it was something I was fond of in the old show: we no longer spent any time with insight into Yang’s choice to pull the investigation proceedings over as long as possible before the He publishes his resignation, just for his own amusement. Besides the lack of a National Knight’s Legion attack, it leaves this version of the story lacking in kinetic action and lighter wit. That is, it fills the void perhaps with more predictable sequential digressions on political points, and may also contribute to it Neue die theseReputation as the most solid interpretation of the material.
So how do things change with this particular focus on politics? Here may be the time to confront The “Great Man Theory” of History who – which LOGH It can be read as playing in. This is an episode that begins with all of Yang’s followers declaring his unique existence as an ingredient needed to win the impending battle, after all, pinning their hopes on their imperial enemies without realizing that they haven’t fought against him yet. Far from where Yang actually is, his struggle is entirely against the stifling government regulators who get in the way of a brilliant martial man like him capable of doing what needs to be done. It’s certainly ripe for being a concern if you don’t agree with the idea that history is shaped entirely by the strong will of a few individuals. In addition, the entire structure makes itself abundantly clear in its critique of democracy’s impotence in the last stage in the face of its corruption, which is another place Buyukoc comments specifically in regards to politicians interfering in those kinds of military affairs. The thing is, a lot of the examples given in the allegory that the coalition are still just as important as they were in the ’80s, detailing how law enforcement uses fascist agitators like the National Cavalry Corps to crush protesters and hide their true meaning, and the lax role of the media In publishing those kinds of stories, and of course one of them LOGHThe government’s favorite subjects, the unwillingness of the official government ruling class to hold their necks in the service of the war effort they like to keep for their other interest.
So even if it’s as obvious as it usually is about putting those dots in there, this ring probably makes it thicker than usual how smarter Yang is than all those stuffed suits because he’s making fun of them with his clothes. facts And Logic. Once Geiersberg arrives he pushes the group behind the investigation to realize how much they need him, until Yang is the one to conclude to How suspicious is the timing of forcing them to interrogate him? These bureaucrats are eventually appointed as more straightforward than bureaucrats LOGHThe usual argument losers, and it comes as an oath where you can hear it Yoshiki Tanaka In the script, he is perhaps louder than usual in his disdain for the kind of leadership he finds ineffective.
Having said that, for all the apparent criticism of this style of democracy and the assumption that things would be better if Yang were only allowed to do what he wanted, they retreat into a dinner conversation at the end of this and explore the other. the side. It ends with reference to Pewcock’s remarks about limiting the liberties of the army, as well as the theme of Reinhard as a ‘benevolent dictator’ which has appeared regularly, from Yang himself no less, throughout this story. “The truth is that people change.” Not only is this what Yang sees as the problem preventing Reinhardt’s ruling from being 100% bulletproof, but it’s also been confirmed to apply to himself at this point as well. Even Rudolph, the dictator who caused this whole mess hundreds of years ago, was himself a benevolent reformer at the beginning of his reign. It seems like a bargaining argument that the chain makes through its own analysis of historical influence: some highly influential individuals may exercise more control over the course of things than others (even in an environment like LOGH since there are more than two great men among the huge cast), but that doesn’t mean they have to be one-sided Permissible to exercise that power. It can seem like an obvious point, sure, but in presenting material you can often make this dense for an audience LOGHsometimes you really have to stack that specific kind of clarification.
If the previous few episodes of Neue die these It felt relatively close to watching the old show, then this show came closer to the books. The text and its illustrations of leadership inconsistencies, and historical analysis of government systems, are all there and there are plenty of great things to hand as they relate to you. And since we’d expect the series to have some time before something like, say, an explosive battle between a pair of Death Stars, it works just fine. But losing some of the memorable flair in the earlier shots dampens it a bit when we get to this point.
