anime adaptation of the third book was released within the second half of 2005.
Anime: Among fans, Banner of the Stars is a title used to describe all anime except Crest of the Stars (which Morioka Hiroyuki has said was not intended as the main idea of the story, but just an introduction to how Jinto
and Lamhirh met). Currently there are two series and an OVA released.
