On the Second Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me: Two Amazing Rivals
On the Second Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me,
Two Amazing Rivals,
and Char Aznable on a Horse
Episode 54 of Legend of Galactic Heroes I've re-watched countless times over and over again since I watched the series back in 2009. The very first meeting between Yang of the Free Planets Alliance and Reinhard of the Galactic Empire is just a super powerful moment to me in this series. One among many, but I think this makes one of my top 5 moments for sure.
I think some of the most amazing thoughts and words are spoken in this short 10 minute span between these 2 great men. Maybe it could be considered one of the most powerful talks in the whole series.
Oh, Yang! lol... If I had the skill to make a .gif I would make one of Yang blinking his eyes in amazement as he gazes upon Reinhard for the first time! Someone make this happen for me 😛
So you might be asking at this point why this a top moment of 2010 for me if I watched the series in 2009. Simply because I can't get the series as a whole out of my head at all since then. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think about it and sometimes I go as far as watching certain episodes to gain more knowledge. This certainly is one of those series that if you watch it about 5++ times you'll notice something different each time. So far I've only watched specific episodes here and there but soon I will be re-watching it as a whole with a friend. I'm excited about this very much.
Since I am nearing the 2000 title mark for total anime watched over on my Anime-Planet profile I have been waiting and waiting to watch "A Hundred Billion Stars, A Hundred Billion Lights" and "Spiral Labyrinth". I want these 2 anime to be my 1999th and 2000th anime watched titles. I figured since I made a big deal out of 1000 last year that it would be fun to make a fuss over 2000 for next year! All titles will be very memorable I'm sure!
One day soon (possibly next year... don't hold me to that...) I will be blogging this fantastic series one episode at a time. It'll be fun to re-watch it and actually write down a lot of thoughts on the series that have been floating around in my head since I watched it all that one 3 day weekend in 2009. Since it made it's way to my number one favourite anime of all time spot, I feel I *have* to talk about it in more depth. Until then, check out Emperor J's posts over on Lower Mid-Table. He's almost finished the whole series!On the Second Day of Christmas My True Love Gave to Me: Two Amazing Rivals,
