Well it's easy to see why it's not popular in america.

No tv support. Though being a bandai title theirs a chance it could get onto adult swim.

It's extremely popular in japan and i expect a senki no senkai 3 to be animated after the book is written of course.

I've only seen ep one and i was interested i'll see the rest of the series later.

And yep it's AnimeExpo I expect alot of announcements their like chobits and possibly rahxephon.

Crest Of The Stars , for all its narratival and technical merits, is not popular for the simple tragedy that a significant population of the Sci-Fi community believes that Good Sci-Fi has to be loud, violent and devoid of a cerebral plot.

Hence, despite its status as a definite classic, Crest Of The Stars shall ever be underappreciated by a herd of grunting neanderthals.

Thank goodness we are not of that pack.

While I also enjoyed Creast of the stars, it probibly isn't for everyone. Motslikely it's the vague sense that nither side of the war are nither wholely good nor are they all bad. AKA the humans are bigoted, and the Abh are oppresive (I've only seen the first 13 eps. so I could be wrong).

Personly my favirite charicter is the Lady of Chaos, Spoor . Althoe both Jinto and Lafiel run a close second.

Thanks Robotech Master for the news, I'm looking forward to the second part of this series.

Jint and Lafielle are such an intelligent and charming couple. They are so for each other.

But poor Jint won't live as long as Lafielle!!

I wouldn't say that. Remember, Star Trek is the biggest sci-fi franchise of all time and Babylon 5 is regarded as a classic by much of fandom.

It's not popular because it's not on tv....

Whats the most popular animes in america....

Gundam Wing
DBZ
Pokemon
Cowboy Bebop

Why are they popular because their shown on tv (and cb is because it's damn good as well)

Samurai X (Rurouni Kenshin OVAS) is probably the only anime to get really popular without help of tv (it was topping the blockbuster charts)

Oh for the love of god, HE IS NOT EVEN A SAMURAI!

Sorry, that was not directed at you, it just needed release.

I'll probably return later to post something a little more on-topic and serious, but its far beyond the time I should have been asleep.

You see, the English release perverted the title of Rurouni Kenshin.
They twisted it into (no idea how) Samurai X, which is all the more off-putting because Kenshin is not even a Samurai. I get the feeling that the people who named it had not watched the anime itself.

That's true... he never was classified or was performing the role of a samurai. Just a swordsman.

I'll use this thread since it's the biggest one, and I've already posted in it...

Crest of the Stars was AMAZING. I just recently finally decided to finish this series, and... my oh my... yea, that's it. I'm speechless. It has been a VERY long time since I got so attached to any anime. I finished this and both sequels in one day. I haven't marathoned anime like this in a LONG time.

Truly... really.. man. How quickly this series shot up into being one of my fave anime series'. Damn, I wanna watch it all over again...

I thought it was impossible, possibly even sacriligious.

But having finished the first season of Crest Of The Stars, I can honestly say that Princess Lafille is easily an equal in cuteness to the lovely Kirika-Chan of Noir.

But an equal, I stress, no more.

Don't worry Kirika-Chan, always gonna be here for you regardless of any circustances.

Mmmm.....Lafiel.

Never thought I'd find a cuter space elf than Azalyn, but lo and behold...

Anyways, yes there are two sequals. Battle Flag of the Stars and Battleflag of the Stars II, 13 and 10 episodes respectively.

The author of the series hasn't released the next set of novels yet, but says that he does plan to continue. The anime, therefore, is not really done yet, and if the popularity of the show in Japan continues strong, then likely his future novels will be animated as well.
