As a fan of the 110-episode OVA, the remake is nowhere near as good to me. A lot of the more personal and intimate moments of the story are kind of blunted by some really odd directorial choices, the depiction of battles is always pursued with the attempt at making every second a blood-pumping setpiece but it often comes off as tonally inappropriate and sometimes unintentionally hilarious, a lot of the principal characters either have their designs changed to something generic with others being transformed into fujoshis and a lot of the art seems less gritty and expressionistic and kind of adopts a glossier style that I'm really not a fan of. As much as I'd like to say that the remake mostly consists of specific cosmetic gripes that I may have, I do believe it has some real structural issues when conversing on the narrative because the way it chooses to portray events often makes it seem like it is taking more time to do less and spreads out separate plot elements and storylines unnecessarily.
