(I'm writing this as an open letter, since Zac Bertschy and Justin Sevakis don't seem to either read/respond to my Tweets or even respond to my Private Messages, so please bear with me on this Smile )

Dear Zac Bertschy and Justin Sevakis

Thank You.

Ever since AnnCast episode 25( What'Chou talkin' bout? ), I've spent a very very long time hunting this series down.

Sadly, through unethical means, I found it 2 years later, but the grim face soon turned to glee as I've started watching this mammoth series.

On and off for the past 5 months, I have finally finished it.
Even though I feel pretty happy for watching it, something inside me is fairly saddened that it is all over. All 110 episodes of it.

Thank you, Zac Bertschy and Justin Sevakis, for introducing me to Legend Of The Galactic Heroes

I hope you guys will drop down some good titles from the past that are worth seeking out.

Thank You Very Much.

Regards
Migsse

Hmm, that's weird. Zac and Justin always answer my PMs instantly*. Sucks to be you.












*Or, rather, I'm sure they would if I did.

I thought it was a love letter.

Well, it's nice that this isn't some long, gravely written complaint against ANN for discriminating against moe, which I'll concede is what I thought this would be when I saw the thread title.

You do know there's a couple of movies and additional OVAs, right?

You know what's a better way to write an "open letter to Zac Bertschy and Justin Sevakis"? By actually writing an open letter to Zac Bertschy and Justin Sevakis and not posting it on the ANN message board!

Apparently your definition of "letter" is different from mine.

Except that wouldn't be an open letter. The whole point of the "open" part is that it's intended for people who aren't the specific recipients to see it, as well.

Glad you like the podcast, and LoGH.

We probably didn't respond because there was no immediate call for a response, and when that happens we just sort of smile and move onto the next message. Hope you didn't take it personally.

Hello Vaisaga
I have them as well, but had no clue on which one to start with.
From doing some research, there are many conflicting thoughts from other people who say start from A while other say start from B.
In the end, I pretty much skipped it and watched the main series instead. I'm pretty satisfied with only the main series and don't really *need* to watch the others since they are prequels.
Or so they say, maybe you have a better idea?

Hello Justin
Thanks for replying to the thread.
I took it abit personally, since I took it as a sign of being ignored. Which is why I wrote up this open letter, in case it was either missed or forgotten.

I thought this would yet another very long rant with a great deal of angry and jadedness. As 9/10 times, that is almost always the case.

But it's pretty nice that Justin responded though, given he is probably really busy with the next ANN Cast, video editing or his other tasks.

I was thinking the same thing TT. Positivity in a feedback thread? I didn't think such a thing was possible. I'd also say it's more along the lines of 999 out of 1000.
