Because that's not what Macross is about.
The war is a stage for the main characters to interact on.
There's no space for moral ambiguity, complex antagonists and all that, because the characters
all fill those roles.
You could set any Macross series nearly anywhere if you ignore the other foundation of the series, which is transforming fighter planes.
As long as can you put this sort of pressure on the characters it would feel the same.

Humanity/Zentradi are spreading degeneracy (trashy hypersexualized pop-culture) and shitskin immigrants (they literally named a planet al Shahal ffs) at gunpoint.
The Winderemereans are clearly the good guys.

Also, Freyja is a degenerate little racetraitor, who away from her duty as a future wife and mother, in order to sing lewd songs and race mix with terran boys.

Yeah "Until then". That's why I said the Vajra were morally ambiguous "by the end". The Zentradi were just evil assholes until Deculture came into the picture. I don't know where this "Macross has never had moral ambiguity" came from because the entire point of the story is having all sides come together by the end

I love a lot of older mecha anime but at this point I kind of don't know why they keep doing them because outside of the odd OVA or Movie like Gundam Unicorn or Origin they do not sell at all anymore really and a lot of the worst shows coming out lately are mecha anime. Maybe with a very heavy idol/music theme Delta can be the first one to sell over the 10K mark this decade but it'll need some clever packaging to do so.

Am I the only one who can't tell the difference between VFs?

I think it's significantly harder to see their changes. When it comes to Gundam, each one has like a different face or at least have a unique function that helps make it easy to tell them apart. But when it comes to Macross, they all do the same general 3-step transformation and all go pew-pew-pew. Only the ace customs look really different and even then the biggest change is that they each shoot more lasers or carry more missiles (or in Basara's case have a face, now that's the kind of difference I'm talking about)

I'm saying this because I'm seeing people talk about them in this series as some sort of downgrade as like they all don't do the same thing anyway

Pff what a delusional retard.

When the first Macross came out there weren't a whole lot of real robot shows. Heck Macross INSPIRED shit like Mech Warrior in the West, it's one of the fathers of the fucking genre if anything.

Sure later it degenerated into 90s stupidity just like Gundam but that wasn't the plan.
And the difference is unlike Gundam it can't write off the stupidity as easily so now they have to incorporate it into the canon.

I can see how Macross being a parody sounds logical to a F generation shitter though.
But just looking through a single of the original design files can show you how Macross is anything BUT a joke to the people that were making it. If anything there's more engineering that went into the designs for the original Macross than all of the other popular mecha anime at the time combined.

Macross in general doesn't emphasize VFs the way Gundam emphasizes mobile suits, even the mook suits. The Messiah's name is mentioned what, two or three times in all of Frontier? Gundam drops its suits names a lot more regularly to make them more recognizable to the audience.

>being this new
Macross came out in the 80s, by that point in time Gundam and Space Battleship Yamato were THE most popular mecha titles and were spawning off a lot of copycats (just because you don't hear about something doesn't mean that it doesn't exist).

If you've ever seen an interview about the creation of Macross then you'd know that the choices were influenced by the desire to subvert a lot of Gundam tropes. For instance the Zentradi were created to make a reason for the valkyries to be humanoid. And Hikaru sucking at piloting a valkyrie when he fell into the cockpit was specifically a take that against Amuro.

>>135624494
A long time ago, anon, if you don't know about it then it just goes to show how much of newfag you really are. Real robot are what the Japanese called shows like Gundam and Space Battleship Yamato.

>Why have a giant humanoid robot unless you're fighting a humanoid enemy?

That's really not a good excuse to have humanoid robots.

They will never make sense. They are just a dumb device to "humanize" the fights between big machines. When that's not necessary at all.

All of my yes. The fight scenes better be as good as in 0048. Don't disappoint me, Kawamori.
>>
>>135626196

More like it looks stupid.

There is a reason why the biggest Sci-fi franchises like Star Wars don't have giant humanoid robots.
>>
>>135626371
Because they don't know what is cool.

>dumb device to "humanize" the fights between big machines

It's not dumb because it works. Even if it doesn't work for you, it works for the majority of people. Yes, there is no real-world benefit to humanoid robots, with a lot of drawbacks. You have to allow artistic license for the betterment of the narrative. As long as it doesn't break the suspension of disbelief for the intended audience there's no problem.

An example I like to use is internal narrative. In real life, internal monologue is abstract - you DO NOT think in words unless you are actively thinking about thinking in words. In a life-or-death situation, you do not think in words. But in fiction, we write the thoughts of the characters, for example overdubbing them in anime. To a psychologist, "[This] will never make sense. [This is] just a dumb device to "humanize" the fights. When that's not necessary at all."

Max is 74 during Delta. So either she's his granddaughter, or Max is still impregnating Milia at 56. I wonder if Meltrandi have menopause.

Star Wars literally uses samurai analogues to solve its conflicts. Pointing out that it doesn't use giant robots is like pointing out that Gordon Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares doesn't use giant robots.
>>
>>135626137
To be fair they did get into a fist fight with a Zentradi and once used their Valkryie to infiltrate a Zentradi warship.

Kawamori has said that she is the 3rd generation of Jenius. She is a granddaughter.

Doesn't this show have way too many characters? It's going to end with VVV with everyone in the cast remaining a one dimensional cartoon. Then again, the show has one episode and it already has some of the oldest tropes in the book. Flat kuudere and "big boob ara-ara oneesan"? What the fuck, man. And the hot-blooded murderous enemy pilot and his buttbuddy the "smart glasses guy"; straight out of the boy band squad clowns from VVV.

I can actually see Freyja winning here in a way I couldn't with Ranka or Minmay, because she seems like a good foil for Hayate. But then again, Mirage has potential for that too because if I remember correctly her profile mentions she takes her job as a pilot very seriously.

Anyways I don't expect this triangle to be as intense as Frontier's.

Well, the more legs you add the more balance it gets. If you look at nature quads is the standard for larger ones while 6 to more are for insects. We bipeds have our advantages but necessarily if we upsize us.

The main series did not age well...turns out dressing up robots and crossdressing zentraedis are not as fun as they were in the 80's
