Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Thanks, Arbiter! :mrgreen: My apologies for waiting so long until now to get through the final two episodes of Delta. I actually didn't come out of it disappointed with the series as a whole because the final battle and performance by Walkure was so epic and amazing! The love triangle resolved so ne...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Watched episode 24 earlier tonight. I was really touched emotionally to see Reina being there for Makina when she took the sniper shot meant for Freyja. But for some reason, probably due to Reina's way of being repressive with her emotions even in one where her best friend is hurt, it felt a bit und...

Re: The Official Gundam Thunderbolt Anime Thread Mk I

Does this mean I have to watch December Sky in order to fully grasp season 2? I ask because last we saw in season 1, Io and the Feddies were taken prisoner by the victorious Zekes and only in the movie version do we see their escape from captivity. I'm all in favor of a new season but for some reaso...

Re: Macross Mega Marathon

Here's my review of Do You Remember Love?. The animation was pretty ahead of it's time considering it was made in 1984 and so much attention to detail was paid. From the rainbow in Saturn to Hikaru going up stairs to get to Minmay, it was very awesome. Characters like Global, Claudia, Max, Kakizaki,...

Re: Gundam Mega Marathon

Took an extended break from 08th to get back on track with Gundam Wing. Saw episode 2 and the grunt underwater suits may be easy fodder for the Deathscythe to slash through, they did surprisingly put up a good fight.

Re: Gundam Mega Marathon

I'm feeling the Gundam itch especially after having watched the first episode of the 08th MS Team in over a decade and feeling the urge to share my opinion on it with all of you with your kind indulgence. Shiro Amada is equal parts cocky and caring with his initial desire to wipe out all Zeon from E...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Last time I kept up with Delta was ep. 19 with the big lesson in Macross history. Is it wrong of me to feel annoyed when the original Macross theme song played when it got to that point? Don't know why but it just felt tacked on. As for how the triangle was at that point, I adored the Hayate/Mirage ...

Re: Macross Mega Marathon

^ Thanks! :D

I saw episode 4 of Macross Seven in recent times and I definitely have to side with the Diamond Force who are getting more and more tired of Basara's antics as well as Max's apparent inefficiency at dealing with him.

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

I'm slowly making some progress in watching the second half of the series and I have to admit that episode 18 had some stunning visuals in it's aerial combat and Protoculture ruin hijinks where it seems like Freyja is unknowingly causing Hayate more harm than good in their sync of piloting and singi...

Re: Megazone 23

I think there is a PS3 game that came out in Japan about this show. I remember seeing parts of this show when I was young but it was very confusing(I was like 8 or 9 I think, brother had it in a disk) I just remember thinking maybe the people that made the Matrix sort of got their inspiration from ...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Tried out ep. 16 and thank the maker i did because Freyja's birthday celebration was a sight to behold. The gifts, the songs, the triangle which is what keeps me coming back for more was being fully utilized. Only downer is feeling like Arad is somewhat shifty in all matters whether it be Wright Imm...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

I hate to have to break this unfortunate news but I don't think I will be able to finish this series. :( I keep feeling like the last great Macross entry was Plus and this show is too kiddy and glittery for my liking despite having several moments of darkness. I'll probably watch Zero again since I ...

Re: Megazone 23

I felt bad for Tomomi getting whacked by BD's goons just for making a movie featuring the Garland. And I really thought the second OVA should've included Yui's other friend Mai instead of retiring her at the end of episode 1. Shinji, Shogo's friend who introduces him to the Garland, felt like he was...

Re: Right Stuf announces [Gundam Release Updates 2016]

Apparently, Reconguista is getting only the Blu-Ray treatment while Victory gets both Blu-Ray and DVD transition. Both get released Oct. 4. As for which i'm going to view first, I have this strange obsession with finishing Reconguista after falling so far behind so i'll start with that one. :D http:...

Re: RS Project -Rebirth Storage-

I just saw it and while I felt ripped that it was only one episode, it did it's part in establishing a well crafted story and displaying stellar animation in the characters and environments. Another interesting personal opinion is that I didn't feel like the special ruined what could've been a sweet...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

I do wonder besides having been the co-owner of the Ragnyannyan along with Chuck, what other category does Marianne fit into Chuck's life? I know the two children are his brothers and Elizabeth may be also a sister but I only have dumb Wikipedia to go on this and they didn't classify Marianne as ano...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Stupid Wikipedia, made me confuse Marianne with Elizabeth when I commented on the prior episode's Ragnyannyan casualty. Loved the humor in making Hayate and Mirage's attempts at connecting the power sound like suggestive themes to everyone who was listening in on radios alone. :mrgreen: Though Hayat...
