Re: Macross Release?

Due to pre-existing licenses, the releases are divided up a bit. Macross Plus will be coming via Anime Ltd., Macross II via AnimEigo, and the rest via RightS...

Re: Relative Cost of Ships in Gundam

Not that I've seen... the ships tend to be mentioned only in passing in most of the Gundam books I have.

Re: Mospeada and 08th MS Team (SPOILERS)

You are definitely overthinking it. There's no long, gritty, ground war in the jungle in MOSPEADA . There's like... one, maybe two, episodes in the South American jungles. Most of the series main plot takes place in North America, with the final arcs occurring in New York and then Michigan. Stick Be...

Re: Mons Series?

So exactly where did the whole Mons (Ie Pokemon, Digimon, Kids and mini monster thing) start? Was Pokemon the first franchise to use this? Or did the idea come earlier? As far as I am aware, the claims of originating that particular trend are somewhat contested due to various properties having been...

Re: Fate/ Franchise order

Yes there are several spinoffs that change the genre, yet keep the characters. It seems like when a franchise gets popular enough, they'll make any kind of spin off. The same thing actually happened with Evangelion. To an extent, it's got the Dragon Ball problem where there are only a double handfu...

Re: Fate/ Franchise order

For the main series, you've got three adaptions of the visual novel which from what I've heard address three different routes from the VN. The order I watched them in was Fate Stay Night: Ultimate Blade Works, Fate Stay Night, and Fate Stay Night Heaven's Feel, although I think one could switch the...

Re: How fast is the Hyaku Shiki really?

So... that's not "how fast is the Hyaku Shiki", that's "how much thrust does the Hyaku Shiki have?".

Unfortunately even the oldest sources I have list only the sum of the four main engines for the Hyaku Shiki.

Re: Macross Release?

If we are talking about Macross releases - anything on horizon regarding previous shows being released outside of Japan? Any news at all? Releases in the PRC and SE Asia are reportedly going well, though those started a year or so ago. No official word on releases to streaming or home video in Engl...

Re: Macross Unification War?

Thank you, it's always neat to see more backstory to the Anime, especially because a lot of Macross side material has never been translated. Gonna be doing a LOT about that in the coming months... The whole set up can be seen in Macross Zero itself, The eastern European powers can be seen in Nora a...

Re: Macross Unification War?

So its established that the Unification Wars preceded the events of the first Macross series (as has been touched on partially in the original series and more in depth in Zero). So is it ever established how the Earth was divided during the war? Were there multiple Power Blocs (like in Gundam 00) ,...

Re: Fate/ Franchise order

1. "Don't". If you're really determined, it hardly matters because many of them are either stand-alone or alternate versions of the exact same story. For example, Fate/stay night , Unlimited Blade Works , and Heaven's Feel are all adaptations of different routes in the first game. Each is ...

Re: Macross Release?

Not yet. I'd assume the news will be forthcoming the closer we get to the anniversary events in the final quarter of this year.

For whatever reason, Big West always seems to want to do its anniversary stuff in autumn and winter.

Re: Fluid pulse vs. field motor

The cables aren't for the fluid pulse system iirc. From what I can see, the record is somewhat divided on the topic. Older material generally leans toward the idea that those are transfer pipes for the fluid pulse system. Newer material leans towards the idea that it is a radiative cooling system f...

Re: Fluid pulse vs. field motor

If so, then why exactly did Zeon put these cables on the outside other than making maintenance easier? Now, I don't remember precisely which episode it was i...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

I still haven't watched the second Delta movie. Was there any scene that the Draken III put its sword to good use? If I remember correctly, they didn't do much on TV, so I always think that these swords have ceremonial use more than anything. I've not seen it either... nobody outside of Japan has, ...

IIRC they're used in one or two shots in Guld and Isamu's dogfight on Earth in Macross Plus.
