Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

So is this the only Macross Delta movie or is there going to be another one like the Frontier Movies? As far as we know, this is the only one. The film reportedly ends with the same ending as the series, and no mention is made of any trailer for a second at the end they way they did in Macross Fron...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

With a little luck, I'll have a few copies of the theater pamphlet for the movie in a week or so... so I can start digging into the Armored Siegfried, Mirage's Draken, and Hayate's VF-31 w/ Lilldrakens. I was more hoping of DYRL-style retelling of the original story. Another thing - did they expand ...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Thanks Seto! I see. Squeezing 26 25 minute series into 2 hour movie... (cough) Gundam SEED movies (cough) Let's not get crazy... it can't possibly be THAT bad. Don't give up too quick, by most indications the movie is really good! ('course we won't really know until the BD comes out....) Dunno if I...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Well, we can hope, right? It takes me a long time before I recognize that VF in the Jenius' hangar was nothing else other than the VF-9. (It would had been nice had Hayate practiced on the VF-9 instead of the VF-1EX. That foward-swept wings...) Yeah, an animated VF-9 would be nice. Outside of Macro...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

So, movie is basically a compilation of TV series with a bit of additional animation thrown in? Yeah, word from Japan is it's a more traditional compilation-style movie, though about 40-50% of the footage is new, which is still VERY high for that kind of project. Sigh, i was hoping for retelling DY...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

How advanced is the SDF-1 Macross to the rest of the Protodevlin fleet during its time? Watching 7, I have a feeling it is not something the Protodevlin would sorely miss. The old Supervision Army medium-scale gunboat that crashed on Earth and was rebuilt into the SDF-1 Macross was an utterly typic...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Anyone here watched, or have plan to watch the Delta movie? From Twitter and Google Translate, it seems like they changed the chemistry between Hayate/Freya and Kaname/Messer a bit. Everything I've seen thus from friends abroad who were able to take in the film on opening night suggests that there ...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Nothing specifically about the corporation itself... all we know is what we knew from the series materials, it's an interstellar conglomerate that started out as a communications firm before branching out into other fields like ...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Speaking of Ex-Gear, did Xaos bought the VF-01EX as it was, or did they do custom work to a civilian VF-01? You know, I don't recall if the specs in the Macross Delta Blu-ray liner notes listed it as a customized VF or a manufacturer stock one. I'll have to check when I get home. IIRC my original t...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Say, how would the post-YF-24 Valkyrie fares in ground supression fire and joint-operation with infantry? It'd depend on the model and variant, I suppose. Most variants of the VF-25 Messiah would likely perform quite admirably in close air support operations. The VF-25's design includes a large win...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

That reminded me of how the bulge at the center of the chest of Battroids (the cockpit) got more and more angular until the VF-19, and from there they began cutting off the cone (YF-29). Actually, that's only the cockpit on a few models... the cockpit "wanders" a bit between designs. On the VF-1, i...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Is it just me, or there is an effort ever since the VF-1 to thinner the waist of successive Valkyries generations? Proportionally... but that's more a function of VFs themselves getting substantially larger, resulting in a taller, longer-limbed battroid. Also, I don't think I have seen any VF with ...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Damn, that is harsh. Just wish that the shows had given us this much details on the background instead of exposited everything in a gaiden manga. Delta would, I feel, have been a MUCH better series if they'd spent more time developing Windermere's characters the way they did in the gaiden manga. In...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Great to know! It's for these tiny details that draw me to Macross. "Tiny details" are something Macross 's creators are obsessed with. Say, were the Macross-class SFDN ships mass produced before or after the New Macross Battle-class appeared (by the time of Macross 7)? Were the former cheaper and ...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Looking at the lineart of the AIF-7S, I noticed 6 ports on the side bulges (3 on each side) just above the 25mm guns. On the AIF-9V, these are the 20mm guns. Did the staff forget those weapons or are they something else, like verniers? On models with reduced capability or that lack optional hardwar...

So... Macross Chronicle is the equivalent of MSV and a background book put together, am I right? Are MSV books canon? (Not being sarcastic, I really don't know!) Like the Gundam Perfect File , it's an attempt to make a comprehensive official artbook which covers EVERYTHING by condensing the materia...

To be precise, that is a gallery of scanned Mechanic Sheets from the 2nd Edition of the official Macross encyclopedia Macross Chronicle . Like...

Re: Why don't we see as many combining mecha like we used to?

Why don't we see as many combining mecha like we used to? Probably because that's always been more of a Super Robot thing. On the occasions it does show up in the Real(istic) Robot genre of mecha anime and manga, it often ends up being deconstructed by the authors as a terrible and terribly unreali...
