For decades, the Galactic Empire has been locked in an interstellar war with the Free Planets Alliance, a conflict that involves thousands of spaceships and millions of soldiers on both sides. Two new commanders enter the conflict with great hopes: Imperial Admiral Reinhard von Lohengramm and the FPA's Yang Wen-Li. As they deal with superiors and subordinates, maneuver through complicated political arrangements, plot strategies, and win battles, each will be tested, and ultimately, changed, by the reality of war.

Personally, I'm kinda surprised there's no official thread for this one, considering it's possibly one the greatest and most complex animes out there (in both production, with it's insane number of VAs for example, and the actual depth of anime itself). If you're into politics, social commentaries (on both government types and humanity itself) and space warfare then this is for you. And considering it has 110 episodes (not counting the movies and other stuff) you're in for quite a ride.
Of course, it's old school and takes its self quite seriously aka. no moe material for you fans out there, but that seriousness itself is one of it's main selling points.
