I’ve previous proclaimed that one of the best works of science fiction anime out of Japan is Legend of the Galactic Heroes, and I have claimed that this is Superversive. Now there is a new adaptation of the original light novels coming to television in a few months in Japan. There is a teaser trailer for it, and someone took the time to subtitle that teaser into English, which I’ve embedded below.
If there is a good opportunity to get in on this fantastic Space Opera, and you find the prospect of watching 110 episodes of a half-hour television series daunting (not including the many prequel stories), then this is what you’re looking for.
The anime business is not what it was even a decade ago; releases in Japan come West far faster now than they have previously. There is a license deal in place, so I do expect that something will be formally announced later this year regarding an official Western release- especially if the series will air on American television. If this interests you, then I would keep an eye out for that (or, at the least, English subtitles on the official home video release out of Japan).
In the mean time, I reiterate the recommendation of the original novels. You can get them on Amazon in print and Kindle, in English. You will not be disappointed.
