While the main anime series for The Legend of the Galactic Heroes has been just that, an anime series, its latest anime incarnation is a series of anime movies. New imagery has been shared (via Anime!Anime!) for the second film in the new series, The Legend of the Galactic Heroes: Die Neue These Seiran.
The Production I.G. made anime film series will span three films, each of which makes up the second “season” of the new anime based on Yoshiki Tanaka’s science fiction epic novel series of the same name. Here’s some more screens, and a key visual:
The new images are from the second film, and were revealed at a fan-event to celebrate the first week of the first film in Japanese theaters.
The first film premiered in Japanese theaters this past Friday, while the second and third films will premiere on October 25th and November 29th, respectively. Each film will be of similar length to four episodes of the TV anime.
