Who is the woman in front of the Gundam's head? Amuro's mother?

I got Mazinger Z vibes (Koji Kabuto being introduced to Mazinger Z by his grandfather).
Yes, it's Kamaria Ray.

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Anyway, with the death of Syd Mead, I suddenly want to ask if Kawamori has any apprentice/protege in mechanical design. He reaches 60 the next year. Maybe it is time for he to find someone whom he can entrust his future works with? Yoshiyuki Tomino and Hayao Miyazaki are each 78 and still working, ...

In what is likely the final update of the year, my reviews for Gundam Build Divers wrap up today with episodes episodes 22-25. With this series out of the way, I'll be moving on to catch up on RE:Rise during its hiatus. In other news, the SF world is dimmer today with the loss of designer Syd Mead,...

Re: Advance of Zeta

Yeah, there isn't much out there on the spinoffs. My perception with Western fans is that none of the spinoffs have captured the same level of attention and interest that the original series did.

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Neither he nor Naruesuan really look their age though... they've got that Max and Milia thing working for them. I feel like a lot of anime is very youth-biased in terms of how old people look. Max and Milia definitely don't look their ages. And all these senpai characters like Roy, Ozma and Arad do...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Max should be 74 by the time of Delta, so I'm sure he would still be alive, but I don't know if he'd still be piloting Valkyries. Come to think of it, we've never seen any really old people be pilots in Macross. Max and Milia themselves are the limit, each being 52 and 51, respectively, in Macross 7.

And yet if you see the comments on Twitter replying to Funimation's tweet, there are many sad sacks who are excited about buying the same recycled garbage over and over again.
