I noticed someting while browsing the site looking for something new to watch. Which is that there seems to a lacking in the space opera department of anime. I mean there are the great ones like Legend of the Galactic Heroes, Banner of the Stars, Macross, Heroic Age, and the recently discovered Tytania. But beyond those there aren't are whole lot others out there to watch. So I can't help but to wonder as to whether it's really all that hard to make a good or at least decent space opera anime. I mean sure there are a lot of things to take into consideration when making a space opera. Such as the setting, the heroic central character, technology , romance, war, politics, and the musical score most of these tend to be on a rather large scale. With huge space battles taking place as warships destory other warships in a epic battle to determine the fate of the galaxy. So I can get that it can take a lot of work to make a good space opera as opposed to certain other series where all they need is for the main character to get a powerup before he is able to kickbutt. But still even if it does take a lot of work you would think that companies out there would be eager to monopolize on this mostly untouched genre in the anime universe. Sure there are some pretty big names out there like Legend of the Galactic Hereos and Macross that a company would have to take on, but still those titles came out a couple of decades ago. So maybe it's time for something new in space opera that will help fully establish the space opera genre. But this is all probably only wishful thinking on my part and I will probably have to wait several more years before the next space opera comes out.
