I’ll pre-order this during the next Rightstuf sale. Keep hearing many mixed things about it ,but it looks like the type of show I like.

[size=16]EPISODE 1 IS NOW AVAILABLE ON THE ONLINE PLAYER![/size]


#4

I just finished up episode one on the Online Player. It has a unique opening and the music is quite nice. I enjoyed the first episode enough, but I want to see where this goes before I make final judgement on it.

You have to love those come from behind victories!


#5

This could be interesting. I will watch the next few episodes.

And Cody…

It was so well planned, was it really a come from behind victory or a well laid trap?

Why can’t it be both? :wink:


#7

I love it when the clever little guys get one over on the arrogant big guys.

At 19:00 in the second episode, when Fan Hyurlick walking towards the shoe-shine girl, his gait is just like Tylor, Irresponsible Captain

Got the first collection in the mail today from TRSI. Haven’t seen any of it yet, but I looked at the opening and ending themes… Because that’s just what I do.

Anyway, I liked the operatic-style opening theme; it really gives off a nice Legend of the Galactic Heroes vibe, which was obviously the point. But then you get the ending theme by Psychic Lover, which manages to make a serious, LOGH-esque space opera sound absolutely hot-blooded and badass! Really, Sentai should just license every anime that Psyhic Lover did a song for, as they always deliver the goods. In fact, http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/people.php?id=25549 a list of what they’ve done songs for… Oh, Sentai already has Dokkoida?! and Tytania, FUNimation already has Witchblade, and we’re probably never going to see the original Japanese versions of Bakugan and Tansformers Armada brought over here.

OK then Sentai… That leaves just GAIKING: Legend of Daikyu-Maryu and Ring ni Kakero 1! Well, they also apparently did an insert song for the first Beet the Vandel Buster anime, but who knows if Illumitoon is still alive or not.

Wait a minute, wasn’t this about Tytania? Oops…

Like I said… Oops. Couldn’t quite help it, as I really like Psychic Lover’s songs and they don’t get quite the credit that they deserve usually. Anyway, I only saw a few episodes of LOGH, but hopefully Tytania will be just as enjoyable as those episodes were. It certainly has the right people behind it.

Episode 1 -

Great first episode! The OP is wonderful and sounds like it should be a national anthem for one of these groups (if it isn’t already).
*
I think it’s funny the way Duke Ariabert takes tea as he’s waging war. And it’s also funny that the tea is from the planet Liptia – it made me think of Lipton tea! :lol: And the others drink wine as they watch the battle. This bunch is just so confident of an easy win. But the admiral had a great bluff and it worked!!


#13

I’ve heard some bad things about this one, but that first episode was actually a pretty good.

The space combat tactics are actually fairly well done (well at least for the first episode), and seems like it might turn out to be fairly cool, but I’ll reserve judgement on it until after I’ve watched more of it.


#14

Just watched the first episode and looks interesting so far. I’m a sucker for space combat though.


#15

I want to know where the Japanese buy their lasers. Only in Japan could they invent lasers that shoot out from the ship and bend 90 degrees, then head for their target…lol

I actually can’t remember off hand if they do in Tytania or not, but it seems they always do that in anime, don’t they? LOL


#16

Don’t remember seeing any bending lasers in the first episode.


#17

I didn’t think there was in this one, but anytime I read “anime” and “space battle” in the same sentence, that’s immediately what pops to mind.


#18

So this looks all serious and stuff at first, as the inexperienced young guy wins the battle and saves the day… then takes a comical turn as he wasn’t supposed to win and gets fired. Aparently the whole thing was intended to just make it look good so the planet’s leaders could lose without looking like they just gave away the store.

I think this is going to be one of those your mileage may vary/Love/Hate shows for everyone. I’ve heard very bad things about it going way downhill as the show progresses ,but at the same time I’ve heard people saying it’s worth at least a watch. I think some of the hate is coming from it not being as Epic as the Creators previous work.

I have the first set ,but have not gotten around to watching.lol

Episode 2 -

Duke Ariabert is called home to answer for his defeat at the Battle of Cerberus. As the other dukes insult Ariabert’s capabilities to Lord Ajumarn, it seems more like they are all vying to be the next leader of the clan. They also evaluate Fan Hyulick’s history and background, as well as his strategy during the battle.
*
Back on Euria, Fan arrives at the Mayor’s second house expecting a victory celebration only to find out that he was not supposed to win the battle. The dukes on Uraniborg arrive at the same conclusion. But did anyone think to tell Fan before the battle? Fan has now come to the realization that a deal was made and that would explain the use of young, inexperienced officers, including himself. But of course the Mayor can’t admit to anything. They need Fan to leave the planet and he gets paid off. He takes all this really well for some reason. I like how the mayor’s assistant shoved her high heel into Fan’s foot when he asked to spend the night at her place.
*
In the meantime, Duke Idrice suggests they make Fan an offer to join their own army and also to assign him to Duke Ariabert to punish him for his loss. While, Lord Ajumarn doesn’t exactly agree to this, he grounds Ariabert and leaves it to him to determine Fan’s future – either “bring him in or make him disappear” – both are acceptable solutions.
*
As a now unemployed Fan considers his future, Lord Ajumarn once again asks Obnol his opinion of the other dukes and this time Obnol thinks that Duke Jusran might be the best choice to succeed Lord Ajumarn as head of the family. Ajumarn contemplates his suggestion, but I don’t think Jusran is completely for Tytania the way it is now. He tells Francia that Tytania will need him most when it’s in “the most unfortunate situation” and that Tytania would be better off not needing him. Jusran also says that if Tytania was not around, it wouldn’t change human history. I wonder what he’s planning.
*
Fan leaves Euria as “the most heroic unemployed man in the galaxy” but I wonder where he’s going and what he’ll do next. I really loved the little shoe shine girl. She stole the show for me. I liked how she kept calling Fan “Mr. Middle-aged Hero Man”!
