21 June 2008: Crest is second to Banner only alphabetically

I don't know how anyone can watch Banner of the Stars without first watching Crest of the Stars. Banner is excellent, but skipping Crest means missing out on the very beginning of Jinto and Lafiel's relationship.

I assume it's that one screenshot of Jinto and Lafiel riding on a robot horse that scares some people away from Crest of the Stars, because as good as the Banner sequels are, they are not "universally acclaimed as far and far away superior over [their] predecessor" by any means.
