Re: Macross Mega Marathon

Here is a vlog on my more detailed thoughts concerning the last episode of Macross 7. Hopefully it turned out ok.

Re: Harmony Gold vs Tatsunoko

Basically it all boils down to the chance (and only the chance) that Tatsunoko might get the rights and trademarks back in 2021. I would guess that it would depend on what Tats thinks they can make more money from: Distributing the Macross franchise with Big West/Studio Nue or renewing the deal with...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Well, it finally happened. On October 9, the Delta movie was officially announced in Tokyo , which also included a mini-concert by the members of Walkure. The next full Walkure concert was also announced for February at Yokohama Arena with a Key Visual From what little I can glean from those who wer...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Well, looks like this thread will have to go active again as a Macross Delta movie has been announced. As is pretty typical with these kinds of announcements, we haven't yet been told what exactly this movie is; it could be a direct sequel, maybe a compilation movie, maybe a short film like The Gala...

(Which still manages to be more informative than the available info on Mei Leeron's VF-27y.)
Unless she heavily customized it, I can't imagine her Lucifer is any different than the other VF-27y

Re: Macross Mega Marathon

MACROSS 7 EPISODES 46-48 I kind of feel like Operation: Stargazer should have been the leadup to the end of the story. It would have been very easy to do: with most of the elite pilots away, the entirety of the Varauta fleet surrounds the M7 fleet. Milia fights a valiant holding action but ultimate...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Upon further thought, I find myself wondering why the Brisingir Cluster even bothered to develop the VF-31? If it doesn't have much better performance than the Messiah... why not just buy Messiahs?

(Real world answer of course being that this was a new show thus a new fighter is needed)

Re: Macross Mega Marathon

That's a bit harsh, eh? Veffidas gets on with him well enough and Ray only got ACTUALLY mad at him once in the whole 49 episodes. And Mylene only argues with him because she might(?) have a crush on him. Anyway... https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=1638728522839142&l=2c5dce6c8a MACROSS 7 EPISOD...

Re: Macross Mega Marathon

It isn't even that... the poor schlubs in the Jamming Birds are all perfectly capable of producing a sufficient level of Sound Energy, and they sing for pretty much everyone in Fire Bomber does EXCEPT Basara. The big problem that prevents them from being an effective unit is that... well... they're...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Going through the VF-31 Master File again, a thought strikes me that the writers were stretching themselves a bit when they were coming up with models other than than the ones seen in Delta. The VF-31R and the 31U in particular look like they belong in Kerbal Space Program, not Macross. :D

Re: Macross Mega Marathon

MACROSS 7 EPISODE 36-40 I might as well take the opportunity to tackle one of the big criticisms of Macross 7, namely, Nekki Basara himself. One of the biggest complaints where he is concerned is that he's a bad protagonist because he's too static, too boring, never changing. While I can somewhat u...

Re: Macross Mega Marathon

MACROSS 7 EPISODES 31-35 Things begin to pick up a bit in this block of episodes. While it starts off with a filler episode about a tabloid reporter almost spilling the beans about Basara going to sing to Sivil, it actually works as a bit of foreshadowing for when Sivil actually is found out. Then ...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

It's about time this thread was re-activated. Recently, I've found out that the models of VF-31 used by Delta Flight are not, as I presumed, regular models of the 31 but customs created specifically for Delta Flight to aid/protect Walkure, thought they all still feature the Container Weapon System p...

About the only screen grabs I could get of the SV-154 Svard, but god is it ugly.
I completely and totally disagree with you. :D

Re: Macross Mega Marathon

OK, more seriously, I take issue with them because, by and large, they have little to no character. [...], she largely devolves to fanservice, which isn’t necessarily a problem in and of itself except that Sivil has, say it with me now, no character. So she's a perfect match for Basara... neither o...

Re: New Macross TV series in 2018

Hmm, good point, for some reason I thought Delta would've followed the same route as Frontier and gotten a movie version, to alteast make a bit more sense from the 2nd half and that ending. Oh well. But thanks for the info, it makes more sense when you put it that way. That happened to Frontier bec...
