Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

I've actually never seen the original, only DYRL. But I'm pretty sure Minmei and Hikaru didn't have an issue with different life spans, or the former's songs having bad effects on the latter. Wasn't it an issue of Minmei's busy idol career and her douche of a cousin? It's been years since I've seen...

At least she's coming to terms with her own feelings. And the game is far from over in spite of her rival's huge lead.

Re: The Official Macross Delta Mecha Thread Mk I

The question I have is why an upgraded -17 is being used instead of the VF-19, which started being mass-produced/entering service around the 2040s as well. I think the in-universe answer is that the -19s are too high spec for the average schmuck grunt to handle. IRL, Kawamori didn't like the idea o...

Hayate's dad is Wright Immelmann. Another aviator reference. And judging from Robert's reaction (future Delta 4?) he's done something nasty.

I'm betting that he was the one flying that VF-22 that dropped the dimensional warhead.

Given how xenophobic the Windermerians seem to be, that is extremely unlikely. I can't see any of the rune people taking in one of their "mortal enemy" as their own.

Re: Unicorn Gundam OVAs Technology Incoherences

As for the Geara Doga, I recall that even back in CCA, Amuro is able to blow away a Geara Doga's shield piece by piece using the Nu Gundam's head vulcans - that stuck with me because it virtually never happens. Could it be possible that the Doga shield is actually just cheap material with some kind...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

I don't know if it's still true with newer fighters like the Siegfried, but the YF-19 needed 60% of the plane's power output to use the PPB and thus could not be used in fighter mode. 1 x fixed Howard PBS-03F fighter-carried pin-point barrier system (pin-point barrier system needs 60% of the output ...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Well damn... I was really rooting for Kaname/Messer too. Of course this presents a much bigger narrative problem: no one but Messer was able to stand up to Keith, so with Messer gone there is no way Delta platoon can win any battle. Personally, I think the White Knight is really the only one of the...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

So... I'm guessing Mikumo is a Windemere? Her hair was glowing back in an earlier episode and she's made more than one mention to "a/the wind" like Freyja and other Windies. I assume she's just got perfect rune control? Maybe she goes out alone like she does to let the glow out or something... At a...

Re: Color of the MS-06 Zaku II

It's worth noting that some (possibly most) of that may be the vagaries of the print process of the books in question. Some art books have better-quality color printing than others. Pretty much this on most of those. The shades seem to have faded and "repainted" at least once over the years. Still ...
