Macross Delta? More like Love Live Delta.

As a fan of Plus I'm disappoint.

Opinion discharged.

As someone who thinks the original Macross TV is the best Macross series, I'm fine with Delta. They just want to do something more light-hearted.
The only thing I didn't really like was the magical girl-esque transformations. Except for that the episode was cool.

They would rather point out on focus strictly on the moments such as where almost all of humanity went extinct and that's it.

The truth of the matter is that the only thing people cared about at the very end of SDF (and I would say all of the other shows as well) was who Hikaru was going to fuck, fate of humanity be damned.

Considering how popular Frontier was, and how popular AKB0048 was, and how popular Delta will likely be, I'd say he knows EXACTLY what he's doing.

Lemme give you a protip, son: Plus and Zero didn't sell all the well. The best selling Macross stuff has always been batshit insane music magic with idols and planes and shit.
>>
>>135591095
It depends what you want to see.
Storywise SDF Macross is best of entrei franchise and Frontier has catchy songs.
Zero is for mecha/aircraft porn.

Kawamori should've done another SUPER SERIOUS OVA in between Frontier and Delta, like he did with Plus between SDF and 7, or Zero between 7 and Frontier.

That way the "MACROSS IS NOT ABOUT MUSIC AND IDOLS REEEEEEEEEEEEEEE" faggots would've been satisfied, and we could have our dancing valkyries in peace.

I remember how excited plusfags were when the first key visual came out in September showing the VF31 and the Draken because this seemed like the second coming of Plus.

To a point, sure. Frontier definitely had a lot of light-heated moments, but this magical girl shit? It's Macross, not fucking Symphogear.

Some music makes people insane and the only thing that can stop it is some mahou shoujo moe moe uguu uguu pop idol group. What a fucking interesting conflict.

At least Gundam Thunderbolt is good. They can somehow manage to create something good. Kawamori is just high on crack.

Macross will never ever be marketed abroad so he doesn't need to give a fuck about making Macross serious.

Let's be honest for a second here: Macross is fundamentally stupid, and there's nothing worse than something stupid taking itself seriously. When something stupid doesn't take itself seriously and throws out great song and dance? It's a lot of fun.

>>135592031

Sheryl magically transformed during her stage shows; Ranka had her stupid magical girl mascot. This isn't a quantum leap.

Which is more badass than anything Minmay or Sheryl or shit Ranka ever did.
Why aren't you even happy that they're part of the conflict now instead of being pure idol pandering?

>>135592031
Remember when the first Macross teleported itself to Pluto and everyone there was trapped in space while being pursued by an overwhelming alien fleet and everyone in the Macross decided that the next best course of action was to put on an idol contest? Yeah.

What's with all the fags that treat Macross so seriously anyway? I love it because it pulls off all the dumb shit with a completely straight face.

It's endearing.
>>
It's been one episode. Heck, it's not even the official first episode. While it's looking a lot like magic and AKB0048, give it a few more episodes. They had the dogfight and music on point and a love triangle is sure to surface in due time. If it ends up being an entertaining ride by the end, it's all good. It wouldn't hurt to be more alike previous Macross series but it hasn't strayed exceptionally far like people are claiming. Let it happen.

This is the same franchise that gave you Valkyries dressed up as Zentradi and helping a Zentradi light a cigar with its gunpod. Also the same franchise which had Zentradi spies hilariously cross dressing.

Not happening as it is Macross. Though they are changing it up slightly this time round.
>Kawamori pointed out that the delta symbol in the logo is made of triangular symbols, to symbolize the three main thematic elements of Macross: music, a love triangle, and transforming fighter planes. However, he noted that the two symbols are split, and explained that this is indicative that the three elements will not come together as expected in the new story.

>And Zentradi being pacified by song and dance isn't? This is still the exact same shit

I actually argued in the last thread that singing in Macross serving as communication between 2 different species is not magical at all, considering music can communicate feelings even if they don't understand the lyrics. It makes sense for the pacifist message of Macross.

Now stuff like the Var syndrome and whatever the fuck Main girl species is, that's magic.

Spiritia and Song Energy never came back because they didn't make any fucking sense. If they're going to have music doing magic shit I hope they explain it well.

>Sheryl magically transformed during her stage shows; Ranka had her stupid magical girl mascot. This isn't a quantum leap.
Sheryl used Holograms in her concert just like the new girls, that's not magic, so no complaints there. Ranka had a Vajra as a mascot, iirc, and Vajra are not likely to appear in this series unless it's some sequel to Frontier.

From the terrible CG to the hardcore pandering, it's like they've dropped all pretenses of this being a Macross show and have gone full "idol superheroes" like other shows. Stop hurting yourself, Macross franchise. We're worried about you. Come home.
>Macross went off the deep end after Macross II more than 20 years ago. Kawamori is a hack. He might be a genius mecha designer (praise where it's due), but he's the George Lucas of anime when it comes to storytelling. Macross simply has no future in his hands as a science fiction epic. And this new Delta does nothing but confirm it. At this point in time Macross is used to sell airplanes, loli figures and music cd's. The story went out the window ages ago.

If you actually go back and watch SDF Macross and even Plus it's far from just about idols and music exclusively. It's gotten more and more about that stuff over time though starting with Seven and the modernization of the franchise with Frontier which Delta looks about ready to fully complete

Kawamori is a fucking weird idiot like most of anime's key people nowadays. I don't care how much his stuff sells or doesn't which frankly since Macross Frontier it has not and I don't know if that was the 2008 factor and Bandai's marketing machine at the time or not.

But like in all honesty are you really surprised. With where the anime scene is in general right now I sure as hell can't be nor mad either. It is what it is and a sign of the times really. Straight mecha doesn't really sell anymore, it makes total fucking sense for Bandai Visual to play it further in the direction of pretty much their and animes most explosively successful franchise of the decade and where the trends are blowing. Music anime FUCKING sells and Bandai has all the right packaging styles to make Delta sell if they play their cards right which I'm sure they will. If they make it a straight mecha type series outside of an OVA format it's going to bomb, can't blame em'.

It's not bad. Beyond the main story progression structure you're given 3 large expanses of land to explore and lots of optional content.

It's repetitive, but if you like Macross and enjoyed the PSP games you'll probably still enjoy it.

OH god, this is exactly what I need. Imported it 2 years ago along with E.X. Troopers. Played it for a bit along with EX until I got completely hooked on EX. Played some other games after finishing it and when I finally came back to play M30 I had no idea what the hell I was doing because I can't read moon. Managed to play it by listening to the voices and pressing the shown buttons during the tutorial. Finally I can actually play the game.

The game is great when you know what you are doing
Shame its not in english, won't be able to know about all the character interactions and how the story goes, gameplay is great and much more fun when you beat the game and can play as all the characters and use any vehicle including Zentradi mechs and Basara's VF.
The game is pretty easy unfortunately and you can save up missiles and spam special versions of them along with special attacks.
My major flaw with this game is the fucking music only plays when you use someone as an assist and it loops maybe once before stopping and the rest of the game is void of music.

Also, as Delta is only set 58 years after the events of SDF, there is a good chance that Max and Milia are still alive and kicking ass somewhere on the M7 fleet. Max would only be 74 years young.

Hikaru and the Megaroad-01 crew are probably still alive, too. I BELIEVE.

The only thing more important than idol shit in Macross is the love triangle, in fact from Kawamori's own words it's a love triangle set against the backdrop of war. Idolshit has been in the middle.

If you watch the episode, you would know that Hayate's problem is that he isn't obsess with anything, at all. Not even slightly passionate about something, that's why he is constantly demotivated and slacking. I'm sure this will change soon via magical singing, love and some innate piloting talent though.

Hopefully, but it's obvious they want the CG and 2D animation to blend well.
Which also mean the 2D actually hold the CG quality back.

In Zero they pushed the 2D animation and background quality to match the realistic CG. That couldn't have been easy.
Delta/Frontier and basically every modern anime all do the opposite and tone down the CG quality so it match the poor 2D animation.

I wish someone was crazy enough to do it Zero's way again.

It doesn't help that Myung and Guld were super-unlikable. That entire relationship drama made me wish I was watching Kaifun, instead.

>Myung and Guld were super-unlikable
i never got that, myung obviously cared for both but wanted to be a big girl and tried to put them both behind behind her. both she and issamu loved guld enough to hide the the truth from him.

and poor guld couldn't admit to himself the horrible things he did, how could you not feel for the poor guy?

maybe i have a blind spot but i love plus, and not for the mecha, which is awesome, but for a very simple story between high school lovers thrown together again.

and a killer ai and music doesn't hurt either

This one feels like she's going to win, since she's the one that can push MC's development most.

Misa won because she taught Hikaru to act like a fucking adult.
Myung ruined the fuck out of Isamu, but I guess he learned to be responsible or some shit.
Sara taught Shin to be tolerant.
Sheryl made Alto face his past and embrace his identity.
The mountain taught Basara to believe in the power of music.

The episode does grow on you, though the valkyrie sequence in front of the crowd with choreographed moves definitely made me cringe.

Giri Giri Ai is top fucking tier however. I'm hype for Delta, but have some reservations. I loved Frontier, especially Alto/Sheryl's development into the romantic ending that we got.

Also, Sheryl a Ginga Bishoujo.


I'm holding my breath, because I'm not sure if Shinku no Diamond Crevasse, Universal Bunny, and Pink Monsoon can be topped.

Freyja comes across as Sheryl and Ranka mixed into one character. Has the innocence of Ranka in some parts, and the confidence and drive of Sheryl.

I know why they did it, and she's an endearing character already. But, Mikumo & Mirage a best.

>>135605023

Man, nosecone art just ain't what it used to be.

>>135605487
How can you even like Mikumo when she has 2 lines in the episode.

Mirage and Freyja are the only characters we actually know, and Freyja is the best.
>>
>>135605275

Without a doubt, the BEST.
>>
>>135605539

Because, I ship dark horse pairings. Always have, always will, even if they don't win.

Alto/Sheryl also solidified my belief that there's hope after all that confident, adult-like characters (body/mind/soul) can in fact win in an anime industry dominated by shitty archetypes.

Ranka a shit, Sheryl a best; Frejya pretty good.
>>
>>135591004
i agree, they really outta ramp up the music because this shit is turning into nymphogear
>>
>>135605645
Movie Ranka was pretty good. Sheryl did have a problem in both versions which was lack of character development, but she was still better than Ranka in the TV series.

I'm liking Freyja's expressiveness and confidence a lot, I'll probably end up liking her more than Ranka or Sheryl.

Also, in Macross you always have mature women winning (except 7, but it hardly had any romance), so I don't know what you found so special about Frontier.

I found Frontier special, because eight years ago I had just hit 20-ish. Therefore Alto/Sheryl's story was much more personable.

I'm not saying that Freyja is a bad character, I do like her. But I always liked chicks closer to the protag's age/slightly older winning. It's a simple preference. Freyja invokes closer to Ranka than Sheryl with her design.

It's, like, my opinion man.

That said, I liked the dog fighting in Frontier quite a bit. It's up there with Zero, for me.

She had tons, going from haughty bitch singer to Ranka's mentor to flirting with Alto to getting sick with space aids and giving up all hope to singing to give hope to the people, fucking Alto and moving in with him to spend her last days in as much happiness as possible. That's a pretty dramatic character arc, most anime characters get way less development than that.
>>
>>135593641
>Now stuff like the Var syndrome and whatever the fuck Main girl species is, that's magic.
The Var Syndrome triggers extreme Misophonia in Zentradi, the idols play other sounds to neutralize it.

Windermere people are a different alien race.
>>
>>135606107

Winderemere is another Macross fleet, not an alien race. The intro literally defines this. What it doesn't show/tell is the history of Winderemere people that led them to become like they are today.
>>
>>135605958

I do think Sheryl was the best choice for Alto, but that has to do with the character, I don't really give a fuck about a character being an adult or a child as long as the ending makes sense.

What I meant is that I don't understand why Sheryl winning in frontier was so special for you when an adult winning happens all the time in Macross.

But that's not development though, Sheryl didn't have to evolve her character to flirt with Alto, mentor Ranka or searching happiness, she seemed capable of doing that from the start (and in fact she pretty much did a lot of that right away), and I don't remember her ever acting like a bitch.

She's a pretty static character that happens to have a lot of depth, which is different from development.

Speaking of voices, are the idols other than Freyja using the same person for singing and regular character voice?

>>135607414

Even so. The movies improved on areas where the TV series fell short. They were good as they are, and only, really, the second movie actually counts; as it gives explicit closure that the TV series failed to deliver.
>>
>>135607177
The only issue it had was butchering Mikhail and KlanKlan characters.

Otherwise, it solves the plot much more neatly than the TV series did, and Ranka matures much more. Alto is almost the same except for the whole extended ending sequence.

Of course I'm just talking about the second movie being an improvement over the last third/second half of the series, the start of the series was much better on the TV version.

Honestly that is what I love about Macross romance. The mature older woman wins the guy instead of the usual archtype.
>>
>>135607647
There was still some romance there, even if much less than in the TV series. It's a fair trade for all the improvements.

Sugita's character was a complete throwaway in the TV series, for example, so his whole arc being eliminated help to smooth the plot. The whole plot regarding the Galaxy is much more concise too. Alto picking a girl at the end also stopped all the arguing about who won (even if Sheryl was the obvious pick), and him going away with the Vajra reinforced the whole communication theme, making for a much better ending.

Only complaints I could have are missing Ozma's flashback episode and Mikhail and KlanKlan development.

Movie obviously works better after watching the TV series though, it's not something I would recommend as a stand-alone work unlike DYRL.

It's nothing special, Myung didn't have competition, in SDF both were adults, in Zero they were both teens and 7 hardly had romance. Your statement would only be right if Frontier was the only Macross series.

Also adult women are not a fucking archetype, and neither are teenagers for that matter. You're using the word archetype wrong, for fuck's sake, most of the adult women in Macross don't even act the same.

Most of the other girls seem to be more mature than Freyja.

But actually, if you think about it, Mirage seems pretty childish, if business oriented, Freyja while goofy can probably act more mature, she certainly seemed so when talking with Hayate.

The only other character I could guess as part of the triangle is Mikumo, as that's only if they want to repeat Ranka and Sheryl again (only Freyja is already more tolerable than Ranka). I'd like it better if it was Mirage, not only it parallels SDF but both Freyja and Mirage seem like fun characters.

>cosplay Sheryl

Anon. Frontier set the bar damn high for a female protagonist in Macross.

The credits have Hayate, Freyja and Mirage separated from the rest of the cast during the credits like Alto, Sheryl and Ranka were during Frontier.

whats this from?

Japanese wiki only has Hayate and Freyja as main characters.

>Windmere is a planet. You see it on the map at the start of the episode. It's where the Knights are from. Humanity tried to colonize it. The natives didn't take it too well.
Findamia is a mistranslation of Windmerian. Rogue, anti-colonial elements within the UN fleets provided the Windmerians with the materials and blueprints required to build their own Variable Fighters. The head of the Knights, Keith Aero Windmere, appears to be prince of the nation, fighting for his planet's freedom against what they perceive to be an aggressive alien conglomerate attempting to colonize their planet.

Can anyone confirm?

I was curious as to whether it would be Mikumo instead but all this evidence cements it as being Mirage, especially the credits details. Oh well. Interested to see how the triangle plays out this time.

Mikumo best Walkure and potentially best girl?

Not-Sheryl will netorare both of them and make the MC her boytoy.

Or the Vajra could appear and do their own thing in the background until someone decides to shoot them and end up on the receiving end of the anti-ship cannons on every Vajra unit there.

Take your half assed Sheryl clone with you and fuck off.

This is between Mirage and Freyja now.

Why can't they accept and assimilate into grorious human culture like the Zolans did?

I mean, it would be pretty shitty to get conquistador'd all over.

>>135608693
I bet there will be Mikumo bowl that one delta squad member and one knight trying to win her.
>>
>>135608711
That wouldn't make any sense, we already got antagonists in Windmere and whatever is causing the Var Syndrome, adding Vajra too would be a mess.

I've looped it nonstop for literally 6.5 hours now.

>there are people not rooting for the superior Jenius entry
And Mylene doesn't count since she was at the center of the triangle, unless you count Basara as the center and then her love rival would be that mountain.

We need a Macross game where we can dog fight it out anon. When that happens, I'll fight you. I hope you'll live to see that day. I'm counting on this battle in the future.

Basara was in the center of a harem consisting of Mylene, the mountain and Gamlin.

Don't you have pictures where she doesn't look like a slut?
