The Official Macross Frontier Thread Track II

Post by Destiny_Gundam » Mon May 26, 2008 5:57 pm

New thread time. 'Track II' to keep with the music theme.

The second wingman could have lost the gun pod in battle or been outfitted with the much smaller standard gun pod. Or perhaps the VF-27 doesn't use a gun pod in standard configuration and thus Brera Stern's fighter and the other green fighter are the exceptions. The big grey gun pods on the VF-27s appear very similar to the sniper gun pod on Mikhail's VF-25G Messiah so those big guns could be specialized weapons in the same category.

I must say Sheyrl has quickly become my favourite Macross singer, with Ranka in close second. Following them I suppose would be Fire Bomber, Sharon, and Minmei (in that order).

I really love that tune Ranka sings; the one backed by the piano. I don't know the name of it, but she sings it at the Monument during her meeting with Alto in episode 3 and with Brera in episode 8. It's a strange lilting melody. I just can't get enough of it. I need this soundtrack :)

Song is called Aimo. I do believe it'll be on the first OST (whose release date I don't know). What I'm waiting for is the duet from ep 7 though. Diamond Crevasse is currently my favourite.

Why not? Seven coloured carrots love you after all.

Come to think of it, I wonder if Ranka is also still working at Nyan Nyan~

Thanks Destiny_Gundam. I'm going to pick up that first OST. Where do you buy your soundtracks, btw? I usually buy from Amazon.jp.

There's definitely nothing wrong with liking the carrot song. I've got hooked on more than a few commercial company jingles in my life. I think everyone has :)

.... This is the only answer I can give to that question...


So, Nanase. I wonder who she actually likes. She falls for Michael's flattery, Sheyrl accuses her of liking Alto, and she seem just a little too happy around Ranka.

Any way you slice it, Mr short pants is out of luck.

And I thought the Nyan Nyan commercial was addictive, but Nyan Nyan doesn't love me (yeah!). -_-

Can't... stop... listening...

I love that song Sheryl sings in episode 7, that one where Alto goes to save Luca, that's a pure badass scene right there.

i believe the song mention is called Infinity. but it is a bit generic compare to the other tracks. my favorite is Iteza Gogo Kuji Dont Be Late.

I guess I had that coming. Well, Macross is special to me (as if no one could tell, lol) so I actually do that weird "buying" thing with the Macross merchandise :)

I think people are beginning read too much into the characters fondness for each other. I mean, Bobby is already gay and I've now heard theories that Luca, Nanase and Ozuma (I kid you not) are gay as well. It's getting silly. It's becoming a lot like a discussion of male celebrities with the fellas down at the local pub; they're convinced every famous male is gay :)

Because it's the only way we can delude ourselves into thinking the famous guys won't steal our women.

Luca is clearly not gay, as he totally has a thing for Nanase. He's just a little over affectionate with his machines.

Nanase looked just a little too happy when Ranka said they'd be together everyday (at school). She was all dere dere and everything. While it's not conclusive or anything, it still opens some doubt.

I don't know why anyone would think Ozma was gay. Maybe it's just wishful thinking on their part cuz he's so awesome?

Sorry for keeping going back to ep 7, but one cool little moment (that I keep meaning to bring up, but forgetting) was alto discarding the Super parts to take the missile swarm aimed at him. Has anyone else done something like this?

yep, i remember in macross plus, isamu did something similar like this once in a boostered VF-11, he had to jettison the booster pack in order to make them the "new" target of a swarm of dummy missiles during a practice run of the YF-21 ;)

And there's ofcourse the scene in MacZero where Shin jettisons his weapons and fastpacks to avert being targeted by Aiphos (sp?).
Not entirely the same, but I was reminded of it none the less.

I don't recall Honey ever being canonically gay.

Anywho, yeah, Luca is pretty huggy with Alto, but damn it there's nothing wrong with men being huggy!

At any rate, we all know everyone is hoping for the Ranka/Sheyrl end.

So my rhetorical question is this... How many VF25s will Alto destroy before the end of the series?

Hikaru from the original series got his VF-1J trashed twice before getting Roy's VF-1S so Alto can probably do it at least one more time.
