From the 1970s to the start of the 21st century, sci-fi was the most trending genre which itself was mostly based on space battles of epic proportions. This was the golden age for the evolution of the geek culture, and it gave us many classics in this genre, such as Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, Star Trek, and many other notable franchises. These franchised garnered much success.
This sudden change of interest in the entertainment industry also had its effects on literature. Japan was also one of the countries to quickly adopt this new genre. At that time, there was no manga that had the same fanbase as the Star wars but there was “Heldensagen vom Kosmosinsel”, or “Legend of The Galactic Heroes”, these were novels of the same genre, written by “Yoshiki Tanaka”. This sci-fi series consisted of 10 novels and it quickly gained acclaim from critics and it also became very popular worldwide.
