The Legend of Galactic Heroes is one of those anime that can tend to get overshadowed by some of the bigger properties, flying out for hungry anime fans faster than ever before. The sci-fi anime series however has managed to make a decent niche for itself, luring in fans to its power struggle since its inception in 1988 in anime form, and with its novels that were originally created in 1982 from series creator Yoshiki Tanaka. Now, to follow up the recently released television series, the franchise will be continuing in a trilogy of films that are dropping this fall, promising to deliver the star crossed battles that the series is known for.
Twitter User PKJD8I8 shared the newest poster that displays the cavalcade of characters that populate the upcoming trilogy, with each film premiering in September, October, and November respectively:

While each of the films will be released in Japan to start, with each installment being the equivalent of four episodes of an anime series if it were released in a television format, we’re sure that it will eventually make its way to the west sooner rather than later considering the hunger for anime properties in general. While this series may not have insane mech suits or magical energy beams, The Legend of the Galactic Heroes does create interesting scenarios and character studies throughout its long running franchise.
