Re: Macross Mega Marathon

It isn't even that... the poor schlubs in the Jamming Birds are all perfectly capable of producing a sufficient level of Sound Energy, and they sing for pretty much everyone in Fire Bomber does EXCEPT Basara. The big problem that prevents them from being an effective unit is that... well... they're...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

Going through the VF-31 Master File again, a thought strikes me that the writers were stretching themselves a bit when they were coming up with models other than than the ones seen in Delta. The VF-31R and the 31U in particular look like they belong in Kerbal Space Program, not Macross. :D

Re: Macross Mega Marathon

MACROSS 7 EPISODE 36-40 I might as well take the opportunity to tackle one of the big criticisms of Macross 7, namely, Nekki Basara himself. One of the biggest complaints where he is concerned is that he's a bad protagonist because he's too static, too boring, never changing. While I can somewhat u...

Re: Macross Mega Marathon

MACROSS 7 EPISODES 31-35 Things begin to pick up a bit in this block of episodes. While it starts off with a filler episode about a tabloid reporter almost spilling the beans about Basara going to sing to Sivil, it actually works as a bit of foreshadowing for when Sivil actually is found out. Then ...

Re: The Macross Valkyrie Thread

It's about time this thread was re-activated. Recently, I've found out that the models of VF-31 used by Delta Flight are not, as I presumed, regular models of the 31 but customs created specifically for Delta Flight to aid/protect Walkure, thought they all still feature the Container Weapon System p...

About the only screen grabs I could get of the SV-154 Svard, but god is it ugly.
I completely and totally disagree with you. :D

Re: Macross Mega Marathon

OK, more seriously, I take issue with them because, by and large, they have little to no character. [...], she largely devolves to fanservice, which isn’t necessarily a problem in and of itself except that Sivil has, say it with me now, no character. So she's a perfect match for Basara... neither o...

Re: New Macross TV series in 2018

Hmm, good point, for some reason I thought Delta would've followed the same route as Frontier and gotten a movie version, to alteast make a bit more sense from the 2nd half and that ending. Oh well. But thanks for the info, it makes more sense when you put it that way. That happened to Frontier bec...

MACROSS 7 EPISODES 16-20 Since in this series of episodes we get introduced to the Protodeviln Sivil, this is probably as good a time as any to talk about my feelings concerning these antagonists, to whit, THEY SUCK!

Re: Macross Mega Marathon

MACROSS 7 EPISODES 11-15 The pace finally picks up in these episodes, starting with some fanservice concerning the "Linn Minmei Story," (should be Lynn Minmay) a schlocky docudrama being produced in the Macross 7 fleet that Fire Bomber ends up being a part of. Interestingly, the two full-size Zentr...

Re: The Official Macross Delta Anime Thread Mk I

Glad you're enjoying the Bogue Experience, Iris. ;) In other news , Minori-san and JUNNA performed at the Anisong World Matsuri at AX2017 a few days ago and most agreed they won the crowd by asking about In-N-Out Burger, but couldn't quite get the name right so the crowd began chanting "In-N-Out!

MACROSS 7 EPISODE 1: Speaker Pod Iconic Scene: See the following Quotable Quotes: Who is that idiot?! (Probably a lot of the audience's reaction to Basara) Best Character: Hard to say, even though this is the first episode.... I think I'll say Max, for still being a boss, even at 52.

Found this:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-8C5XKX8wRc
Audio is jerky but supposedly demonstrates new character from upcoming series.
Looks like human/protodeviln hybrid to me. If this source is even true.
Yeah, I don't think so...

Merchandise doesn't really apply to Macross as much except in recent years.
