The original Legend of Galactic Heroes OVA (a.k.a. Heldensagen von Kosmosinsel) is an animated adaptation of Tanaka Yoshiki's series of novels by the same name. Released on home video during four separate periods, this OVA comprises 110 episodes of varying length, culiminating in a total of more than 2,800 minutes of animation. Though only something of a cult classic in Japan, LOGH has since been rereleased on both DVD and Blu-Ray.

The main Legend of Galactic Heroes OVA series is divided into four parts, or seasons.

  • The first season ran from December 1988 to June 1989. It included 26 episodes of 24 minutes each.
  • The second season ran from July of 1991 to February of 1992. It included 28 episodes of 25 minutes each.
  • The third season ran from July of 1994 to February of 1995. It included 32 episodes of 27 minutes each.
  • The fourth and final season ran from September of 1996 to March of 1997. It included 24 episodes of 26 minutes each.

In addition to the main OVA series, several additional OVA prequel series were also produced. Currently, there appear to be no plans for any of the LoGH animated production to be released outside of Japan.

Episode ListEdit

Season 1Edit

The first part (or season 1) covers the volumes 1 and 2 of the original novels, adding some prequel stories (episodes 9 and 11) and original stories (parts of episodes 13 and 14). The main theme is Reinhard von Lohengramm's rise to power, mirrored by Yang Wen-li's unwillingness to go beyond his military duties and assume a similar position in the Free Planets Alliance.

Season 2Edit

The 28-episode second part (or season 2) covers the volumes 3 to 5 of the original novels. Reinhard von Lohengramm achieves almost all his goals: the Goldenbaum dynasty is finally overthrown and the Free Planets Alliance is defeated and occupied. One of the main themes is the comparison between a corrupt democracy and an efficient dictatorship and the moral issues of such a situation, with Yang Wen-li standing for democracy because a corrupt democracy can be amended, while a dictatorship can only be overthrown by force, and a wise dictator is an exception.

Season 3Edit

The 32-episodes third part (or season 3) covers the volumes 6 to 8 of the original novels.

Season 4Edit

The 24-episodes fourth part (or season 4) covers the volumes 9 and 10 of the original novels.
