Legend of the Galactic Heroes is a space opera –considered a masterpiece by many– which exclusively follows the legends of a few men as they attempt to conquest (or fight against it) the galaxy. Or so I thought. LOGH is quite a unique ride, but I have to admit that one of my biggest surprises was the strength of its female cast. It can stumble when it comes to doing them justice, and there’s no denying that they’re still way too few women on the show. But the women we get have plenty of remarkable qualities (or faults!), which they use either to survive, take control of their lives or pursue their own destinies. As a consequence, some even left their own mark on history.
