    Hey all...need some help here. This is gonna be pretty vague, so it might test your Anime skillz.

    Many moons ago, I caught about 10 minutes of a Sci-Fi Anime on TBS, USA, or perhaps Cartoon Network. Anyway, the only information I can convey is the scene involved a MASSIVE space battle between a couple of factions. The battle was primarily between what could be described as hundreds or thousands of "Capital" ships, not individual fighters. After the battle scene was over, the Commander of one of the factions asked for a damage report. (This is the part that hooked me.) The response was some staggering numbers: like 800 ships destroyed and 20 million dead.

    And that's all I remember. Any clue on what movie/series this is?

    Thanks!

    I was about to say Haruhi :o


    Chances are the Haruhi version was a satire of the original, which is what you saw.

    First of all, thanks for the feedback. So I looked up Melancholy and what I saw was much older. I should've explained that first...the snippet I saw was in like 1997. According to Wiki, Melancholy was done in 2006. So that probably isn't it. (Slimjim...what is this "original" you speak of?)

    This program gave me them impression of something along the line of Starblazerish or Gunbuster (?). It also had a pretty serious tone. I don't think it was Macross either.

    Again, thanks for the input. I really am shooting in the dark.

    Well, after a lot of Google'ing I came across My Conquest is the Sea of Stars. Which is a pilot movie for a series called "Legend of the Galactic Heroes". This just might be it.

    There was another movie done called "Overture to a New War" for the same series.

    I'm going to go and guess Space Battleship Yamato, or starblazers as it was known over here.
