Gundam Seed Movie Status

Recently got to thinking that maybe people will get confused if the article doesn't have it's own thread and is mistakenly on the HD Remaster dub thread taking up space. Anyway, it's probably worth talking about if you are still into Seed and want to see some sort of continuation happen. https://www...

Re: Gundam Seed/Destiny Remaster Gets (re)Dub

Didn't really feel like giving this bit of news a topic all of it's own since it's Seed related but it's worth peeking into since it's been decades since the last time we heard progress on the Seed movie, if staff says it's moving along that's probably something. https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/new...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Mari has an uneven screeching voice? Is it something as bad as say, Yoko Ono? Sad to say that Yoko Ono is a bit of a guilty pleasure of mine with her "Don't Worry Kyoko" single. What is wrong with me?!!!

I honestly wouldn't be surprised if the sixth singer is Mirage.

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

@Seto Kaiba Do you think personally that Robotech also came out too close to when Transformers was still on the air and kids were too busy collecting Optimus Prime and Bumblebee toys to care about the Veritechs? I ask because technically a show is like a big commercial for toy merchandise and wouldn...

Don't they have any other shows to fall back on when the license for Robotech and its component shows ends in a couple years and they can't renew it for whatever reason?
They did try with Dragon Ball and Dr. Slump in the 80s but didn't work out.

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Film distribution and animation production is more like a side business to them... you could almost call it a hobby if corporations had such things. They would buy the distribution rights to TV shows and movies and resell those rights to distributors in other countries. Shaka Zulu and Robotech are ...

So besides Robotech, what else does Harmony Gold do?
Other than Robotech, I believe they were the first company before Funimation to attempt to dub Dragon Ball in the 80s. Also, they did a dub of the Lensman movie which had the Japanese score replaced with typical HG fashion American music.

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

I will admit that the one thing Delta got right was the soundtrack with tracks too darn catchy to ignore like Ikenai Borderline which I still have in my iPod. :mrgreen: My problem with the story is the usual complaint that the first half is dope but there ain't no definitive conclusion to the war be...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Fair enough. I admit i overreacted too much, that was an interesting tidbit about Freyja's "When the Rune Sparkles in September" song. I guess i was that upset about Delta being a weak entry in the Macross franchise that i just jumped on the bandwagon of making an excuse to get even angrier about it...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

In YouTube, I came across a particular Delta AMV that surprised and disturbed me in terms of the outright plagiarism that clearly happened in combining one of Freyja's songs with Earth Wind and Fire's "September". https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GvqXCK9tD7o Not only is that weak in my opinion but it...

Re: Gundam Mega Marathon

Episode 12 of 08th MS Team is probably one of the biggest POS finales to what is otherwise a harmony of mecha and romantic precision! :evil: Who wanted Kiki and Michel to be the leads on the writing staff anyway?! It would've made more sense for the whole team be discharged and look for Shiro and Ai...

Thanks, Arbiter! :mrgreen: My apologies for waiting so long until now to get through the final two episodes of Delta.

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,...
