  1. Before I forget again, you know how people urged that you guys don’t watch the previews because of spoilers but it also extends to episode titles. I swear to Kircheis that it’s true and episode titles will spoil what happens so please read the title after watching.

    Also golden wings gets an almost universal don’t watch from people that have seen it. The other good movie aside from the pilot movie is Overtures to a new war it is the better version of the very first battle. From better graphics to more detail and screen time to explaining the lead up and the battle itself.

    • The show itself always leaves the titles for the end of the episode, and with titles like “Goldenbaum is Felled” and such we’ve definitely been avoiding them.

    • Golden Wings is worth *reading* though if you can find it in a language you can read. It was a story written by Tanaka specifically for the manga (and it was in fact the first non-novel LoGH ever published) and it’s perfectly fine, I’ve no idea what happened during its transition into anime.

      If you don’t particularly appreciate Reinhard as a character (as opposed to what he represents as a politician/figure of state) I suppose you’re not going to take a whole lot away from it, though, anyway…

  2. I believe regarding the guy in charge of guarding the emperor, the issue was that being old fashioned he would still commit suicide even if Reinhard pardoned him.
