Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Say, Kaiba, was it true that someone forgetful in the Macross team left the tape (or film, script?) of an episode on a train? And what about the funding shortages? Did Big West's involvement solve the problem?

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Kaiba, you once said in this thread that the colony fleets just don't jump to the middle of nowhere, but they send out probes first. How these probes are like? Are they manned or not?

Re: Speculating about what could have happened to Newtype between Unicorn and F91?

Didn't the MSV-R manga show that Cyber-Newtypes were orginally thought by Zeon not as people with pre-cognitive abilities, but only people with augmented physical, mental and sensory systems? Can we presume that is more closer to Zeon Deikum's vision of Newtypes? And, hypothetically, what if cyberne...

Re: How funnels are controlled?

Say, anyone here familiar with how friend-foe identification happens in U.C.? Beside sending and receiving signals, or thermal imaging? Do funnels have on-board cameras to help identify the target, or do they have to rely completely on the pilots' intuition?

So, according to the latest Delta news, the next movie will feature a sixth Walkure member. Who could that be? Mirage, or one of the dropouts?

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Filler. Variable Fighter Master File: VF-31 Siegfried is a real mess. Most of it is shamelessly copy-pasted material from Variable Fighter Master File: VF-25 Messiah , which is technically appropriate given that the VF-31 reuses a lot of VF-25 hardware, and what isn't copied is mostly BS that contr...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Managed to get my hand on a Master File VF-31. What the heck are the VF-31AF, VF-31HM, VF-31L, VF-31V, VF-31R, VF-31JW, and VF-31U, whose biggest differences are wing/canard designs?

Also, there is a section on some group called "Volunteer Knights of Akarelia" who flew their own Siegfried.

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

http://macross.jp/special/macrosslive2019/ This year seems to be a busy one for Macross public events. Do we have any news of any other event taking place after this concert? Also, anyone here know anyone in Japan who managed to catch the live stream (https://liveviewing.jp/contents/macrosslive2019/)?

Say, has anyone here bought a Variable Fighter Girls yet? What is your impression of it? Also, save for a few mentions in Frontier and Delta (and the games, if you count them), has there been a serious discussion on Lynn Minmay's career and its legacy as an artist? I mean, in-universe historians mus...

Re: Speculating about what could have happened to Newtype between Unicorn and F91?

Since it is Fukui we are talking about, another possible avenue he might explore is the place where Newtype souls come to rest. Can we expect an Instrumentality in Gundam UC 2? If that happen, I can't just imagine how loudly will the Western fandom protest over it.

Re: Speculating about what could have happened to Newtype between Unicorn and F91?

Wasn't it already explained that Newtypes are so rare in the late Universal Century despite allegedly being the next evolutionary step for humanity because their population never gets a chance to grow with the Federation and other governments constantly weaponizing them? Newtypes seldom seem to mee...

Speculating about what could have happened to Newtype between Unicorn and F91?

In this interview , Fukui said that he wanted to explore the events leading to a scarcity and mystification of Newtypes in late UC. He thought that after the people of Earth having witnessed what Amuro and then Banagher could do, fear would be a logical outcome. It would eventually lead to a catastr...

Good list...quite a few names on there I haven't thought about for years.
Say, Chris, beside Mark Simmons and Frederik L. Schodt, is there any American figure who is instrumental in bringing Gundam to America?

Names to know in the early American anime fandom

After a long time lurking online and asking people around, I was finally able to put up this index of important figures in the early American anime fandom (before the 2000s). Please note that this is still a work in process, and as I am not from America, there can be some wrong or unverified informa...

Re: How funnels are controlled?

Piloting an MS is stressful enough, I think, and with the strain of controlling Funnels, not many would be able to withstand it in an extended period of time. In that sense many Funnels with their limited fuel capacity can be a good sense, since they put down a limit to how long should the pilot ope...

Somehow I come across this video on a Robotech panel at a con: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zbVomHHvrow

This is just sad. I remember having seen a video walkthrough of SDC last year. The difference is like the earth and the sky.
