Editorial Reviews

"Hunters" begins the 10-part second sequel to Crest of the Stars (1999), based on the sci-fi novel by Hiroyuki Morioka. The Abh Empire continues its expansion, conquering the planets of United Mankind. Lafiel is now Territorial Ambassador, organizing Abh rule over newly conquered worlds, with Jinto as her assistant. The prison colony Lobnas system presents thorny problems: four different groups with conflicting demands claim to represent the legitimate government. The filmmakers introduce a lot of characters in a short time, not only the Lobnasians, but various Abh officers, and Lafiel's younger brother Duhiel: anyone who hasn't watched both previous series will have trouble sorting them out. In the extras, Morioka writes "it's so profound" to hear Lafiel and Jinto speak Abh in the opening scenes; viewers may think they set the language incorrectly. (Rated 13 and older: violence, brief nudity, risqué humor, alcohol use) --Charles Solomon

5.0 out of 5 stars Banner of the Stars II - General Review January 22, 2004
By A Customer
Banner of the Stars II opens with Lafiel and Jinto speaking Abh (which tricked me too...), just a warning, you may be very confused.
This series, though I haven't seen all of it yet, focuses more on the emotional aspects. Such as the relationship between Lafiel and Jinto. However, this series, at least in the first DVD that I've seen (I've just ordered the 2nd one) is somewhat implying that *Slight spoiler (from the opening sequence/episode)* that Jinto dies at the end */end spoiler*. I am of the personal opinion that this is not true, as if you read the preview text on the third disk (no spoilers in it), it contains these words "And Lafiel must finally come to terms with what is important to her." Which seems to imply a rescue of some sort.. or at least, I fondly hope so. I'd be MAJORLY po'ed if he DID die.
Aside from my personal rantings, I can already tell that this series is going to be one incredibly powerful one. Possibly even better than Banner of the Stars I (which in my opinion is better than Crest, but oh well). Its full of much more emotion then the others, and the voice acting of the main characters has improved yet again (the same difference between Crest and Banner I).
I cannot put this one down, I must see what happens, which is why I'm making the warning that this is as additictive as cocaine.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Anime August 20, 2003
By A Customer
This is a very good third season of Crest of the Stars. This series consintrates more on the relationship of Jinto and Lafiel, which I don't know about you guys, but to me its about time. This is a rather sad one because they are trying to suggest that Jinto is going to die. Well you know what..I think its a TRICK! You can't kill Jinto, it doesn't happen. I think that this will be a great series and all of you should watch it.
