There will be times when license holders can such cannot provide. It will be up to the community to provide for themselves.

Why do so many anime start with boring as fuck exposition? Why do nips not understand basic story telling?

>Why do nips not understand basic story telling
Hollywood pull the same shit as well. Don't go blaming the producers when it's the consumers who are being retarded.
>>
>Macross
>simulcasr
There's a shit company who sues everyone who would try because they think they have the rights to Macross
>>
>>135528987
Because is important to know why weird veined persons are out there causing havoc, and why a combined idol/Valkyrie squadron has to fight them. Considering it is a new anime and all that.

Basic storytelling has nothing to do with leaving the audience in the dark, as you may believe.
>>
>>135529167
>>135529181
It's called creating mystery. If you legitimately couldn't understand what was going on without that explanation then you might be clinically retarded.
Secondly, simply having a narrator state what something is over some pictures is without a doubt the laziest possible way of explaining something. Some subtlety, or a specific situation involving the characters that shows what it is about would be far more effective. Which is what they do in the show later on anyway, making it literally pointless and a waste of time.

So that's why all fansub groups disappeared? Crunchyroll?
Sorry, I left /a/ and animu on 2010 due to some personal problems and it's kinda hard to wrap my head around it.
The archive being incomplete doesn't help.
What about slowsub groups that offered higher quality translations?

>>135530399
>Sorry, I left /a/ and animu on 2010 due to some personal problems and it's kinda hard to wrap my head around it.

what a bad time to leave /a/. the death of fansubbers started around this period.

everyone based horrible's rips at first because it was horrendous and the scripts were just plain bad.

over time though, seems that crunchy struck a deal and now sometimes their raws are better than the TV broadcasts.

combine that with people picking speed over quality, fansubbers now just rip crunchy scripts and make minor edits.
>>
>>135530399

Crunchyroll ruined everything forever, basically.
>>
>>135530399
>Onee-chan
>Sissy!
It's like people who pride themselves in being quality translators never heard the word connotation.
>>
>>135530399
Some slow subbers will do the BD releases but otherwise it's all pretty dead.
Objectively, crunchyroll is decent quality (nowadays anyway) and decent speed, but it's just not the same without the drama, and having the choice of who to watch.
Plus karaoke is dead.
>>
>>135530399
It's pretty dead. There are still a bunch of smaller and some ancient groups (e.g. Live-Evil) around. The BD and DVD groups are still around. A group will pick up a series but they more often than not drop it a few episodes in or take more than a year to finish it. At this point, it's looks as if the future is CR and maybe Netflix. Also, if the TPP passes, it's all over and that's not even considering what will happen after Akiba is bulldozed for the Olympics. I suggest hoarding anything now if you haven't already.

No, they aren't. The people you knew are gone. There's only reddit, MAL and tumblr pretending to be anons here.

CReep are just crunchy rips. Not sure about karaoke, but none of the ones I've downloaded from them had it. Could've been added later, or sometimes crunchy do add a translation themselves.

I've only seen them do the first episode and then none after. I guess CR did the karaoke.

Right, because the exposition at the beginning totally explained the entire plot here, right?

All that it explained was what year it was, where in the galaxy we were, and that Var syndrome is a thing. That's it. All basic setting information, none of that is supposed to be a mystery.

Freyja has a specific form of Synesthesia called Chromesthesia, hearing sounds and music as colors.

Var Syndrome seems to trigger a form of Synesthesia for Zentradi.
>Misophonia is a neurological disorder in which negative experiences (anger, fright, hatred, disgust) are triggered by specific sounds. Richard Cytowic suggests that misophonia is related to, or perhaps a variety of, synesthesia.[23] Miren Edelstein and her colleagues have compared misophonia to synesthesia in terms of connectivity between different brain regions as well as specific symptoms. They formed the hypothesis that "a pathological distortion of connections between the auditory cortex and limbic structures could cause a form of sound-emotion synesthesia

Just watched the episode. Just like Frontier, I thought it did a good job of setting the stage for the rest of the show. Also, I think we all agree that Mikumo is the best girl and that Frejya is going to lose.

Weird things to say in normal conversations, but their planet is named after wind, and other pilots reference it too. But I don't really mind her phrases when they're actually just cultural trappings from her background and not some ~endearing quirk.

Shoji Kawamori when asked about canon his response was Macross is meta-fiction. A historical drama in universe. There is also an in-universe DYRL movie. So SDF Mactoss TV events but with DYRL aesthetics most likely. This is why Zentradi have elf ears now.

Kawamori's answer is that there's no actual canon. All of the series and movies are meant as representations. The "actual events" (the canon) these representations are based are not depicted anywhere.

This is Kawamori giving the finger to anyone who bitches about canon and continuity bullshit.

After Macross Frontier TV tried to make Ranka win but didn't show it because of sales then later releasing a 2 part movie where the roles were reversed and Sheryl actually won i seriously think it is going to have each pilot love their idol to not fuck with sales and fans getting mad.

Don't forget the commercials and seeing the different channel logos on the rips. The only reason I watched Madoka was because of the commercials gg kept in whatever anime series they were airing (Star Driver I believe). I also miss "Oh Kurisamsu" and weather warnings.

If you have watched both the TV and Movies the rolls are completely reversed. The TV confused more on Ranka being the heroine but the Movie focused on Sheryl being the heroine

It's talking about the tone retard. Even if it was meant to be a parody, what it turned out to be was something that could be called high sci-fi that talks about topics like culture and near extinction.

I made my response to the guy who posted that idiotic complaint in the first place. Nothing else needs to be said at this point.

Twat complains that Macross deviated from it's "serious" roots. Boo-fucking-hoo. It was meant to be a parody anyway and while there were horrible moments of death and destruction portrayed throughout the first series, ever since Macross II we have been shown that they want to take a less serious and more corny route (even Macross Plus had it's cheesy moments and despite the serious moments that one had I have known people who laughed at it all the fucking way through - including the sexual assault scene). The fact that there are people still bitching about being unable to take anything seriously here is pathetic. Are we done here, or are we going to take it all the way to 100+ posts for no damn reason?

This is why no one takes anime fans seriously.
>>
>>135545124
He doesn't really need to. It's clear to most of us that he's right. The original Macross is very cheesy and is about as much a "high, serious sci-fi" as Shigatsu is a deep and serious drama. It's good, but any claim that it held useful or important commentaries about culture or that Frontier is somehow not in line with what it originally was is laughable. Basically of Kawamori's stuff has been pulp-ish sci-fi entertainment, and SDF is no different.

They're just going to make sure that those stores don't carry loli, shota, guro, etc. and remove similar statues and advertising in the area. They don't want foreigners wandering in to the wrong store to buy narudo or electronics and finding bad things.
>>
>>135545380
>What's the logic to prefer the former compared to what it actually was?
Not him, but it wasn't really a serious high sci-fi, at least in my eyes and a lot of others. If it's meant to be one thing and most people see it that way, taking it as a different thing and then complaining that the rest of the franchise isn't that thing that it never really was in the first place is silly.

That chances of something like that happening are pretty much zero and that wouldn't change the fact that Hayate, Freyja and Mirage seem to be main three.

>In the sense that involves visuals, sure. But it also involves words and character and audio
Yeah but moving images is the core of the medium (the cinematographic medium, I mean, not just anime). Everything else (sounds, dialogue) was added on top of that.

>and the people who reference the visual medium thing like it dictates what you're allowed to do are insane.
It doesn't "dictate" but there are things that work better than others, always with the goal of making your work as gripping as possible in mind. Think about it. In a visual medium, watching someone die will always have more impact than being told about it (provided you didn't fuck up your scene somehow). Of course, that's an extreme example, but it helps to illustrate where this "show don't tell" thing (and other similar concepts) comes from.

>a series of expository shots like you just described would feel just as formulaic/artificial as any narrative opening
No you've still got this wrong. You avoid datadumping, and just because the method is visual rather than via shitty dialog doesn't mean it gets a pass. Shitty exposition is shitty exposition, regardless of what's being used. As you can have hackneyed dialog bludgeoned in to lazily get things not moving so can you have hackneyed eye rolling inducing shots to bludgeon exposition in.
The challenge is to appear natural.
Most in medias res works simply shift the bad exposition later in the first act or at the beginning of the second. The hope is that they've got you invested using the established action/drama/whatever. It's usually just bait.

But that's all external to the actual product.

Anyway, I'm not saying that show don't tell doesn't make sense a lot of the time, I'm just saying that this is on an individual basis, and falling back on story-telling rules or the visual medium defense to evaluate something is putting the cart before the horse.

>>135548967
Mainly because they weren't a bunch of corporate faggots trying to separate themselves from us as much as possible to get cozy with the mainstream. That's what it boils down to - it's like how some people are willing to pay more for their groceries at an old local store instead of going to the cheap supermarket chain.
>>
>>135548967
Now the things that aren't simulcast often go completely ignored. Those that get picked up by funi might end up with only shitsubs and no other option.

And of course with all of these simulcasts they have no typesetting, hit-or-miss editing, and in some cases just patently wrong translations. More options is always better, but now all the fansub groups are dead so we don't get to make choices anymore.

They admitted Sheryl was going to win in the TV show.

>TV Sheryl confesses love before final battle to Alto/Movie Ranka confesses love to Alto

No wrong. ALTO was confessing to Sheryl. He went to look for her and she shut him up with a romantic kiss. In the movie, Ranka goes to seek Alto before the final battle, doing what Alto did in the tv show and he silenced her with a hug.


>TV Ranka gives Sheryl to alt joins Vajra/Movie Sheryl sacrifices herself and gives Ranka to Alto

> Mediocre to decent translation and editing quality at best
Sounds like what we were getting with fansubs
>Generally bad encoding work
This really isn't the case anymore especially with Crunchyroll having better quality than TV RAWS and most of those dubbers barring Daiz had shit encoding skills.
>Often no song subs at all due to licensing issues
This wasn't the case at all, 9/10 Crunchy or Funi aren't given scripts to songs until later on in the run while fansubbers would make up shit lyrics to compensate until the music singles were released.
>Since simulcast companies do everything for you, people won't be driven to learn moon on their own, leading to less fan translators
People only ever used fansubs to show off their "mad skillz" anyways since it was never a serious effort just a hobby and once they got real jobs they dropped out, the people who watch fansubs were never gonna learn the language anyways.
>>135549164
Honestly what doesn't get subbed nowadays is shit nobody wants i.e. kid shows it was even worse back then when there would be 30 to 40 different shows that season and only half would get picked up and within that half would be dropped. We would have 4 different groups pegging to sub Macross Frontier and Code Geass R2 but no one would touch Blue Dragon S2, it was insane.

Crunchy was good for subbing shows like Naruto, Bleach and other shounenshit since those type of shows are to be consumed weekly and be done with, why anyone would wait two days for a sub of a filler episode is beyond me.

She's a Sheryl archetype. Can't have that in a love triangle. Since with Frontier, there was supposed to be a love triangle--but that didn't happen, because Sheryl was too damn good before the race even began.

>>135550807
Not happening.

Than being said, she's awesome enough she might get a figure either way.

>>135550807

>>
>>135551025
So was Brera supposed to be Kaifun?
>>
>>135551025

Ironically. Sheryl ended up doing both throughout the story. So Ranka's presence served nothing more than being a plot point.
>>
>>135551129
Even worse, were Brera and Ozma supposed to embody two different aspects of Kaifun?
>>
>>135551187
I don't want to associate Kaifun with Ozma. God I hate Kaifun.
>>
>>135551129
No. He was originally suppose to be part of the love triangle with Alto and Ranka. But Sheryl had such an overwhelming reception they changed plans and added Sheryl to it and bumped out Brera.
>>
I'm going assume, though I shouldn't, that LUI98-41S is Macross Galaxy whilst NAH-2194 is Macross Frontier.

Because the naming scheme seems to disregard names for other Macross fleets, while naming Ragna and Windermere. However, the map has only two Macross Fleets ending at the Galactic Center. The first one there was Galaxy, according to Frontier's plot and the one that came after is Frontier itself.

Also, Delta takes place some 17 years after Frontier. So... right?

>>135548967
thankfully we're here to save the day
>>
>>135551275
That's confirmed to be unsourced bullshit:

Brotip: May'n was chosen as the lead singer since the beginnig and Sheryl's VA was casted first.

RANKA was the added character after Kawamori decided to explore the 'Two Minmay' aspects. He even stated so in the Sheryl Manga Interview. Sheryl was the first lead character he made.
>>
>>135551499
>on a show with no simulcast
>>
>>135551275
The original idea was

Seasoned Singer + Two Pilots. Aya was casted first (Sheryl singer). Ranka was a side character, a sister figure. Brera was supposed to be Sheryl's bodyguard like in the Frontier movies. Storyline was dropped in favor to one pilot + two divas.
>>
>>135551520

And one of the best lead characters he's made to date.
>>
>>135551327

My bad on the date.

>>135551379

Hard to say, the name designation is weird this time. But the one that arrives last to the galactic center would be it.
>>
>>135551602
Rankfag butthurt is too strong when Kawamori purposefully cut episode 1 so the viewer will have a 'wrong impression of Sheryl' to match Alto's perception. Because Sheryl was always the heroine.

He didn't make cuts for Ranka.
>>
>>135551520
I don't know why anyone thinks that a series that starts off with two female leads around the male MC is somehow planning to have the love triangle be between the MC, one of them, and the guy who doesn't get involved until halfway through.

Because Kawamori did toy the idea to make it two pilots+one singer, but Sheryl was always the lead heroine. He even held her casting first and admitted he came with her character first.

We don't know who these two pilots would have been, Alto and Brera didn't exist in this draft stage.
>>
>>135551665

Trans-GRAH-AM

>>135551649

Ranka was arguably never an interesting character. She had no chemistry with Alto, and was too emotionally immature due to her PTSD from loss of parents and brother to Vajra.

That's not to say that Sheryl didn't have her own baggage, but she was very much like Alto in that they both had hardships from a young age and fought to be better than they were destined to be, leading them to become star-crossed lovers. Quite literally.
>>
>>135551729
That's not what the other guy's talking about, though, he's saying they changed it at a later stage because people liked Sheryl so much, which I've heard thrown around for ages and is clearly bullshit if you look at how the story went.
>>
>>135551286
There were a minimum of 3 waves we know of for the other generations of the anime for the mass immigrant fleets: Megaroad (2012 Flashback), original New Macross (Macross 7), later New Macross (Macross Frontier). This one is about Ragna and Windermere which may be part of Megaroad or New Macross. They seem to be out on their own too out on the edge of the galaxy. I get the feeling they purposefully put the weird code names so it's more of a break with the other series. This Delta is too much like watching AKB0048 which may or may not be a bad thing.
>>
>Sheryl/DYRL Minmay in all but name

I speak the truth
>>
>>135551779
Ranka is fine in the movies, though.

I am enjoying Frejya so far more than I did to Ranka. She's younger but feels more mature and adventurous? Instead of cowering after the PTSD like show Ranka did, she jumps into the action, adrenaline-music high to sing in middle of the battlefield.

She's so far the most interesting of the leads because she knows what she wants and isn't afraid to pursue it. A trait I admired in Sheryl.

>>135551818

Nah. It's either one of the Megallanic Clouds or, OR, it's the Triangulum Galaxy--since Kawaromi loves his love triangles so much.

>>135551877

Ranka was fine in the movies because they redid some of her character story and pre-established her connection with Alto before the movie started. Rather than being acquaintances, they were already friends from school.

>Frejya

It also helps that her VA doesn't sound like a little school girl, and sounds a bit more mature than her character's age. Plus, it also helps her character be endearing due to the fact that she said no to her destiny and wants to be better than what her path was set to be; same as Alto and Sheryl.

>told to get married to an apple orchard heir

She's got Minmay/Sheryl traits already, which is good for a heroine. Now it remains to be seen which girl will actually win. I'm still rooting for red/purple though.

Stowaway becomes ultra low priority when Var Syndrome outbreak occurs. It's a quick risk assessment: stowaway doesn't particularly harm anyone--whereas Var outbreak leads to uncontrollable terrorism-like conditions.

In the face of this, it's fairly easy to see why she let them go.

I only watched Frontier.
I expected mecha dogfights with some idol shit, but not the reverse.
I wouldn't mind that if it wasn't for idol fighting mechas, but I guess I'm one of the few that is really bothered by that here.
