Sorry to correct you here, anon, but both the main 110-episode series and the Gaiden series are OVAs. The main series has never been on TV (afaik) and was made specifically to be released on home-video.>I remember trying to get into the series three times (once in 2015, 2016 and in 2017) only to give up multiple times.
I gave it a try many years ago too, but it was only recently that I started to appreciate older anime more, that I gave it another chance, and it became one of my favorite anime ever, if not my absolute favorite. Frankly, I didn't want it to be over by the time I reached the last episode.As for the Gaiden series, I've downloaded most of the episodes, but haven't watched any of them for various reasons.>another anime I absolutely adore is Irresponsible Captain Tylor and watching LOGH really showed me just how much of a parody that show as meant to be of this
Thanks for the recommendation, although just by reading about it, I'm not sure that it was meant to be a parody of LoGH specifically, or at least not many people have noticed. It would be hilarious if it turns out to be true, though. I have also noticed some possible influences of LoGH in other Japanese media after watching it.>>241
I hope you watched, and liked it. I'm always happy to see more people watching it for the first time after so many years. Despite it being so common in pretentious 3x3 threads, it's a genuine masterpiece. I mean, it does come from a novel (not a light novel) so the writing quality in LoGH is obviously superior to the average anime, in my opinion.
