Crest of the Stars is an epic space opera anime series that aired on WOWOW in 1999. The show stars Yuka Imai as the protagonist Lafiel, Ayako Kawasumi as Jinto Linn, and Takako Fuji as the captain of the spaceship Basroil, Ekuryua. The show is set in a distant future where humanity has successfully colonized other star systems.

Lafiel is a member of the Abh, a genetically distinct race of humans who have superior intellect and physical abilities. Jinto is a human who was born on a planet that was conquered by the Abh. As the son of a noble on that planet, Jinto was taken as a prisoner of war and brought up by the Abh. The show follows the unlikely partnership of Lafiel and Jinto as they navigate the political intricacies of the Abh empire and engage in various battles against enemy alien races.

The Abh empire is ruled by an emperor who wields immense power and authority. The Abh are a proud and aristocratic race, and they view humans as inferior. However, Lafiel is more open-minded than most Abh, and she develops a close friendship with Jinto. Together, they embark on a series of missions and adventures that take them to the frontier regions of the Abh empire.

The show features a richly detailed and imaginative universe, with stunningly realized space battles and interstellar politics. The Abh empire is depicted as a complex and layered society, with its own rules, customs, and traditions. This is not a simple good-vs-evil story, but a nuanced portrayal of a complex and multifaceted world.

The animation in Crest of the Stars is top-notch, with detailed character designs and intricate space landscapes. The show features a great soundtrack, with sweeping orchestral music and powerful vocals. The voice acting is superb, with the three main actors particularly standing out for their excellent performances.

Crest of the Stars is a beautifully crafted and intellectually stimulating show that combines intense action with complex social and political themes. The show raises questions about identity, loyalty, and honor, and it explores the nature of power and authority in a way that is both thought-provoking and emotionally engaging.

Overall, Crest of the Stars is a must-watch for fans of space opera, sci-fi, and anime in general. It is a classic of the genre, and it remains one of the most enduring and beloved anime series of all time. Whether you are a newcomer to the world of anime or a seasoned veteran, you owe it to yourself to check out this unforgettable masterpiece.
