i for one and hoping for a better take on the love triangle. just like what DYRL did.
i'm still on Mirage's side. :D

speaking of that, maybe we can get Max and Millia like what they did to Isamu in the M Frontier movie.

Well, looks like this thread will have to go active again as a Macross Delta movie has been announced. As is pretty typical with these kinds of announcements, we haven't yet been told what exactly this movie is; it could be a direct sequel, maybe a compilation movie, maybe a short film like The Galaxy Is Calling Me. We'll have to wait and see...
As bad as the writing was in Macross Delta proper, my hopes for this movie are not high.

My level of interest in this is approximately equal to my expectations for it in terms of the quality of the product - which is to say, much like Kaiba, not high.
I'll probably check it out just to see, but unless they go the Frontier route and go for a totally different ending, I doubt given the lackluster way the series concluded IMO that this will be very good.
The best I suppose can be said is that it might net us a couple of new Walküre songs - the songs at least in Delta were all IMO pretty great, so there's that.

I really enjoyed the 1st half, and IIRC it was supposed to end there, and have a movie wrap things up, but look how things went... hopefully this movie(s) will have a different ending. Maybe be like the 2nd Frontier movie and keep Messer alive.

How good were Max and Milia as pilots? One thing a newcomer like me sometimes heard older fans said that Mirage was not as half as good as her great-grandparents.

IIRC, in his very first sortie, Max vastly outflew the veteran Hikaru in the original series, despite the latter's experience. And he only got better after that.
So they were VERY good.

He's a genius... the Jenius family are kind of the gold standard for aces in Macross.

They were/are THE BEST, and so are several of their kids (e.g. Mylene, Therese).

So, the accusation must have been right. In the beginning I have expected Delta to make Mirage a great pilot, but she ended up being so-so.

Anyway, I kinda like the music, but has there been anytime Macross experimented with different genres of musics other than bubblegum pop and rock? Metal? Punk? Gothic Rock? Eurobeat?

Songs in anime shows are normally monotous, so I am looking forward to something different.

Yeah, Mirage is definitely not up to snuff with the rest of the Jenius family line.

So far, no. It's been mostly jpop, with the only major divergence being Macross 7 going to rock instead unless you want to count Macross II's Mardook and Macross Delta's Windermereans having a thing for one-woman wail school of a capella opera.

Macross II's OST had some unused tracks that verged into early 90's techno-ish sort of stuff and some tracks that got used for Macross 7 that were kind of a jazz-y pop.

What about macross plus that was basically yoko kanno getting to make an experimental music album. Sure there was some j-pop but damn that music got weird. Also Voices may be one of my favorite pieces of music ever love that song. :lol:

Eh... Macross Plus is just shy of being a Macross series in name only.

It wasn't actually developed to be a Macross story, it was a stand-alone story he was doing in partnership with Bandai in ~85. Bandai pulled out, and the project evolved further into the prototype for Vision of Escaflowne except with transforming fighters instead of magitek mecha. That project split in half, with one part undergoing a genre shift and turning the factions and plot into the fantasy series Vision of Escaflowne, while some the new fighters were modified into more modern designs and became the mecha of Macross 7. The plot that Bandai had bailed on was simply re-pitched largely unaltered as a proposed Macross story in order to get funding for production and became Macross Plus.

whilst that may be true I was mostly commenting on the music which is very different then your average macross. Which reminds me Zero also has very different music.
