God help us all.
Why does Macross, a show made in the 80s, have a much bigger western following than Macross 7, a show made in the 90s? Is it because
most of them actually only watched Robotech, and are lying?

Reina best girl.
Already doomed ;_;
Nah, she's probably mecha-sexual and/or the resident foodie
>Why is SDF bigger than 7 in the west?
Macross because Robotech was basically Top Gun "for kids" except they never expected Pineapple Salad
(fuck Macek and Harmony Gold)
7 was okay because "this shit is actually good, not like that Macross II shit" although not everyone could get a copy of it because when it originally released, tape fansubs were hard to come by and everyone was sperging about Evangelion at the time instead
Plus was superior because "finally some Macross in the west!" over a decade after original, it stayed pretty faithful to the original formula (space opera, love triangle, transforming mecha,Itano Circus
Green Never Wins)
Zero was okay because "finally some Macross in the early 2000's", but it was a BEAUTIFUL prequel... just like Fate Zero
(watch the originals first then the prequels you CG loving bandwagoning edgelords)
I enjoyed this more than I thought I would.
Freyja best girl. She's like the best of Ranka and Sheryl mixed together.

I know best girl when I see it.
Their job isn't to fight, it's to calm down VAR afflicted people, though they are quite capable of defending themselves from attacks with the use of their drone systems, they probably have offensive capabilities though.
I really like how the Valkyries have a repair/recharge system for them too.
They don't fight beyond drones using for shielding people and singing to calm down people that has been infected by Var syndrome.
Kaname is a leader of idols.
Mikumo is a vocalist.
Titts is a mechanic.
Reina is a hacker.
Well defending and healing is also fighting.
What the fuck happened rite xd?
It's a smug show.
Not much of an ass, though.
The gigantic cloud of mystery surrounding Mikumo origins just tells me Sheryl is still comatose and someone in the galaxy used her genes to breed a lookalike with as much similar traits as possible.
That's why she's the leader and owner of the whole group, someone is backing her with lot of cash.
You know, the galaxy will always need a Sheryl and stuff.
Even clones can't be that much perfect.
SDF Macross was Space War I
DYRL was basically "Space War I: The Movie"
same story, while move was edited to fit time constraints
Plus Ovas vs Plus Movie
again same story overall, movie was edited to fit time constraints.
Frontier TV vs False Diva + Wings of Goodbye Movies were an edit and slight re-interpretation of the story to fit two movies length while taking liberties with stuff like "who won the Hime?" and "Klan getting the glasses"
in the end, canonicity doesn't really matter like
>Do not, under ANY fucking circumstances, take Macross too seriously. The more seriously you take Macross, the less fun you'll have. There are some quite serious aspects in Macross, but your default mindset should be "FUCK YEAH GIANT ROBOTS AND J-POP WHEE".
There is an uncanny Sheryl aura around Mikumo desu.
This two scenes resembling Sayonara no Tsubasa are specially hard on it, even her voice changed for a bit.
>there are people on this website that don't consider this the greatest moment in animation
While I do love that, and Emilia is up there with the other Meltrans on god tier waifus, I don't think there's a scene that captures Macross quite as well as BASARA SINGS TO SPACE WHALES.
Or for that matter, manages to do it both so ridiculously but so amazingly.
>gets buried in a bunch of rubble
>more than fine
inb4 she's a cyborg.
Height chart taken from the special. Also, on top of it there's a character with a long dress (the Var songtress?)
The drones seemed to soften a lot of the rubble impact as they were buried with her. That is how she got out as they burst out with her.
Know what? I kind of want Freyja and Mirage to cat fight over Hayate for half the series, only for Mikumo to netorare both and steal him completely in just 2 episodes.
NTR trending this hard on Japan nowadays, Macross has to do it's own version at some point.
>Gene manipulated human is much more likely.
Also possible. Considering how her hair looks.
Why not both?
nope, Sheryl's 100% human
her grandma was Mao Nome (the younger sister from Zero)
infected by Vajra cells
>not later to be infected/hijacked by evil team only to be brought back through the power of FRIENDSHIP
>accidentally quote myself
I want, frontier established it already, might as well use it.
No. They already used that in Frontier.
SDF - Hikaru was a stunt pilot caught up in the war by accident. Joins military to have something to do and woo Minmay.
Plus - Isamu was the reckless pilot sent to be a test pilot.
7 - Basara was given a VF-19 as part of a secret program.
Frontier - Alto is at a pilot school and finds out his friends are secret mercenary pilots. Convinces them to let him join, accept because SMS pilot got killed in the first vajra attack.
zero - shin was a UN pilot. his f-14 was shot up by anti un variable fighter. Folker gives him a VF because Shin found the secret macguffin.
Aren't the Knights of Wind the best of the best? Mirage has years of experience and lineage and was owned pretty hard.
Macross doesn't treat his mecha on stupid ways so Hayate can't go even close to piloting against them anytime soon.
>Unless your name is Maximilian Jenius.
Hayate could end up being the second coming if his color association with blue ends up meaning anything. We also don't know if he has a past of piloting VFs since has traveled around the galaxy doing many different things.
Me after watching the 1st episode,
>Mecha design worse than frontier
ok, that's fine
>lazy and mediocre CGI
ok, they have a budget so is understandable not every ep can have mindblowing CGI
>"idol" thematic for the singers
ok, perhaps there are too many singers but the series needs an update to cater more contemporary audiences
>the singers are "magical girls"
fuck this shit isn't macross, i cannot defend this any longer
well Sheryl and Ranka didn't go saving people with crazy bots or riding supersonic planes like they were surfing tables
the pilot episode of frontier was MILES better than this one
>Bassara didn't do anything extra crazy.
Well all he would do is just jump into battles and sing while everyone else is getting shot up.
Then you get the whole giant speaker missile thing.
As well as space whales >>135718208
>Her heart accessory is not actually an accessory.
Being a filthy spic myself I can confirm. I can also confirm most of the people bitching about it have never seen SDF and are only pretending to be oldfags.
Most complains can be basically resumed as: "Lolz macross has idols now, gaaaayy"
So kawaii~ which idol butt would you sniff?
I was just guessing, Flower Girl is fine too.
>For some people, Macross is only about humans driving transforming planes vs giant greenish alien people squaring off in Space War 33.333 for posession of the Earth
>For some people Macross is not about different species/races/cultures coming together through idols/music/culture
Man i know that. But when Sheryl make her look badass, no cute bullshit mahou shoujo.... I know that the drone shield thing are part of the pin point barrier technology. I don't have problem with them, just like with funnel in gundam.. Just think about when mikumo change her clothe the first time, should be way better in the way Sheryl do it.... than the mahou shoujo bs...
>I only watched SDF so Delta sucks
These are the faggots we will have to deal with.
>Just think about when mikumo change her clothe the first time, should be way better in the way Sheryl do it.... than the mahou shoujo bs...
all the transformations are exactly like in Frontier movies
>I only watched Robotech, hated every time Minmei was on screen singing My Boyfriend is a pilot and decided to only look up YouTube vids of only the dogfights and Itano Circuses of Plus and Frontier and created a harsh expectation that it all has to be gritty military action like some of the Gundam series were.
God, what an unbearable faggot. Pretty much confeses he has no fucking idea of what he's talking about and yet he think his opinion is valid
Minmay had her own Flower Girl that kept following her but kept missing, bumping into Hikaru once post Rain of Death. Same seiyuu in the drama CD. (The Super Dimension Fortress Macross: Inside Story~Macross Classic)
As seen here Sheryl was followed by Flower Girl also.
>TFW KAwamori will never make a Macross MC based like pic related
Even without Sheryl around there's still Klan Klan, the bridge bunnies, Grace, etc. All of them are better than Ranka.
Her problem isn't really just the fact that practically every female character in MF is better though, her problem was that she was her general immaturity, and bad decisions.
>complaining about the mahou shoujo styled 'transformation'
They are performers, goddammit, being flashy as fuck is expected.
Basara was flying around in a red VF that has a face and does laser lightshows when every other VF has a simple visor for a face and has no laser lightshow things. Sheryl and Ranka's concerts had massive holograms that covers the entire stage and even the audience stands.
Besides, being flashy as fuck attracts attention from the Var syndrome people, they are likely to turn their attention to attack the loud and flashy aidorus than to attack civilians.
>Implying she was that bad a pilot
She's bad by her squadron's standards let alone her family's standards
>Implying every Jenius has to have god level tier piloting skills
They all do but her.
Truly a shamefur dispray.
>She's bad by her squadron's standards let alone her family's standards
Right. Delta Squadron hires a bad pilot just for the lulz and make fun of. Real logical.
>They all do but her.
No they weren't. Only Komilia and Mylene were confirmed pilots from their daughters and they weren't nearly as good as their parents.
>Truly a shamefur dispray.
Truly blowing out of proportion.
>>Implying she was that bad a pilot
No idea if she's bad but she was off
If Delta in full turns out to be anything like Frontier, you can watch it but you'll be missing references here and there. You'll pick up most of what's going on through the context.
That said, it's not airing until spring. You have time to watch the previous series if you choose to.
>Right. Delta Squadron hires a bad pilot just for the lulz and make fun of. Real logical.
With a name like hers they just assumed and nothing bad came up on her record.
The lot of them are starting to regret that assumption.
>No they weren't. Only Komilia and Mylene were confirmed pilots from their daughters and they weren't nearly as good as their parents.
Still held up to the standards unlike that black sheep Mirage.
>Truly blowing out of proportion.
No she must atone for her sins.
All Macross series are stand alone stories however you might not get certain references if you start with the latest or in the middle. I would recommend you at least watch the original SDF Macross series and Do You Remember Love movie just to have an idea of its history.
> giant elf ears
So, given how we have an entire group of antagonistic pilots, five idols and a bunch of good guy pilots, are starcrossed lovers shit and an unhealthy amount of love triangles expected to happen?
>With a name like hers they just assumed and nothing bad came up on her record.
Are you stupid? You're assuming they accepted her purely on name recognition alone. And Mirage being part Zentradi should have at least some pride to prove that she's competent. Besides Max and Milia would never allow to have any of their get a free pass like that.
>Still held up to the standards unlike that black sheep Mirage.
Still blowing it out proportion. Its not like Komilia or Mylene never came out unscathed. Mirage was also facing Aerial Knights who are at least a match to any one of the Delta squadron. She got hit but not shot down and continued to fight.
>No she must atone for her sins.
Jeez talk about making things up. None of us know Mirage's back story at this point and you come up with baseless random shit about her.
>>she also can't dance to save her life
If you watch the episode again Mirage was pretty synchronized with the rest of the squadron only until they took off where she was slightly late.
I'm going to guess that there will only be 3 love triangles at max to fit with Kawamori's love of triangles. The main triangle will very likely get most of the focus while the other two are going on in the background.
She isn't bad at all. She was surprise attacked by the Draken's jamming system and unable to target it properly. One of the Draken's Ghost drones nicked her but she destroyed it afterwards.
>Are you stupid? You're assuming they accepted her purely on name recognition alone. And Mirage being part Zentradi should have at least some pride to prove that she's competent. Besides Max and Milia would never allow to have any of their get a free pass like that.
You're amusing she actively used her name. No from her perspective she just applied for the transfer and got it.
>Still blowing it out proportion. Its not like Komilia or Mylene never came out unscathed. Mirage was also facing Aerial Knights who are at least a match to any one of the Delta squadron. She got hit but not shot down and continued to fight.
She fell prey to ECM and didn't immediately use her ECCM a rookie mistake not even Kakizaki would do.
>Jeez talk about making things up. None of us know Mirage's back story at this point and you come up with baseless random shit about her.
We've seen all we need to pass judgement. Eventually the truth will be clear to you.
>You're amusing she actively used her name
No you are. You're assuming they never gave her any tests to see if she's the real deal. And please read your damn comment unless you've have a lapse of memory already.
>She fell prey to ECM and didn't immediately use her ECCM a rookie mistake not even Kakizaki would do.
Kakizaki had a hell lot more rookie mistakes than Mirage ever shown so far. As for ECM manual activation at their tech level is pretty stupid and should be automated from their systems. Their ECM likely didn't respond quickly enough since the Aerial Knights were UNKNOWNS.
>We've seen all we need to pass judgement. Eventually the truth will be clear to you.
Now this is a load of horseshit and you know it. You claim you know the truth when you have absolutely nothing to back it up.
SDF ended with nukes.
Plus ended with missiles and bullets to in Sharon Apple
Frontier ended with either Alto shooting the shit out of Grace or an entire fleet Macross Cannoning the hell out of the Vajra Queen, which folded in time to get out once Galaxy masterminds were killed by Brera in a suicide rush and the Queen regained control of herself.
Only 7 ended with music saving the universe.
Your nostalgia is blinding you.
>mfw I listened to GIRI GIRI AI on loop full blast on a half hour drive home
Help this song is taking control of me.
So. Will it be better than AKB0048? Because god damn was this first episode excellent.
Not sure if rankafag or just stupid.
And Ranka is a shit. A shit.
Dammit gg. Should've stayed dead.
Also, Freyja reminds me of Sonati.
I can agree to that.
It can't be helped, and I'll admit that I'm very irrational and a zealot when it comes to Macross. SDF was the first anime that I watched, and it was what got me into anime in the first place.
I might find you tolerable if you weren't so irrational and zealous in bashing Ranka like a mad man. Time has dulled you since you used to a lot worse in Frontier threads, trying to turn them into a shrine for Shery whilst adding fuel to the Sheryl vs Ranka war.
Reina is paired with Chuck.
Mikumo is paired with Arad.
Kaname has arrived with Messer on the battlefield.
Makina is left to be with Mirage.
MC is going to be paired with Freyja.
Not true. Ranka's forces used to be strong as hell for the half of the season. Ranka's nyanyan and kira meme helped her out a lot. Sheryl didn't have any real memes to help her out.
I do like Ranka more than Sheryl, that is until she spiraled down and lost her genkiness and spirited personality in the last third of the story.
>no archive anymore to relive the greatest episode ever
minmay is a shitty cocktease bitch who only appreciated ichijo after her hippie cousin left her
god i hate her i wish a piece of zentradi scrap fell on her in the final episode
I don't remember Minmay's minmays being that big. I remember the cute butt though.
>who was first best girl?
Reina means "pure".
Makina means "an able bodied woman".
Mikumo means "idol/goddess/Gift from God. + rebelliousness/obstinacy(stubbornness)".
Kaname: "key person" or "important thing" that makes everyone/everything put together.
Freyja means "Lady" and a norse goddess .
Too bad the cute butt was pretty much all she had.
Watch the last episode. The finale was just too hilarious.
I wouldn't suggest it, but the show climax was amusing.
99% of the cast dies, some even off-screen, others in the funniest ways possible.
For instance, Arthur is crushed by Alexander and Nobunaga who turned into dragons or Da Vinci who threw himself to the fire because he realized he got it completely wrong. Nobunaga wasn't the Savior King, he was the Destroyer King and he painted him as Jesus. While Arthur was a literal who tried to hijack the prophecy from STRONK JAPAN and Mitsuhide who he believed was a literal who and suffered every single episode and everyone shat on him, was actually the real Savior King who would build peace and prosperity in the two planets. He didn't have a regalia because he was supposed to destroy them and restore the balance of nature.
Nobunaga, Jeanne and Da Vinci are hinted to reincarnate in the distant future, in what seems to be a peaceful world.
Do it for Jeanne being useless and Mitsuhide suffering because
it wasn't gratuitous. He had to suffer, agonize, experience all those little torments of a peacefag forced to stain his hands in war that he loathes the most because only then he would have the wisdom to realize what is must be done to rebuild the world. He needed to experience suffering to put an end to it.
It was a mediocre show but I actually liked that.
She and Ceasar die together in a funny way. Her death triggers Mitsuhide's angst.
Note the musical she dies in Mitsuhide's arms since there's not subplot where she marries Ceasar and falls for him too.

It would be cool to have Vajra units hanging around the concert venues of Sheryl and Ranka, like there's a ship hanging around, some staying in the hangars where the mechanics are scared shitless, some human-sized Vajra in the audience. All because the Vajra Queen wants to watch a 4k HD livestream of the concerts from wherever she is in the galaxy and also from multiple points of view.
>thinking that they care about whether they are native to a galaxy
There's Vajra nests in other galaxies, they leave to mate and where do you think they go after they are done?
They are the species that even the Protoculture was scared shitless off.
Sucks I have to wait so long for more sexy armpits.
She was great.
Yes the Macross Crossover live concert for the 30th anniversary happens when she's still in coma, the story is that some characters from macross meet in Sheryl's dream and at the end she let them leave, but also after that Alto is able to communicate with her and tells her that he is definitely coming back and to wait for him.
BUT the crossover live was in July 2013 and the remastered Blu-ray box for frontier that comes with the new concert ending was released in December of that year, so the anon is right the new concert scene takes place after she wakes up and there's a hint of Alto coming back (the blue shooting star approaching the vajra planet).
So you are both right.
There are two explanations anon, 1. Macross 30 isn't canon, like those valkyrie files, or 2. The concert takes place after later in the timeline.
Either way she woke up and Alto returned, this was confirmed by Kawamori, the blu ray ending, the final Macross Frontier concert, and the artbook. At this point in time of you didn't know that she wakes up it's on you.
One episode is enough to see how annoying and sickeningly innocent she is and the ending of this episode was more than enough to see how she's gonna be treated in this show.
Which is to say, exactly like Basara.
Well at least a pilot make it as a love interest for once, that's nice
I-it could be that they just wanted to group the Valkyries together, r-right? This isn't the proper credits either, what with the VA names being hidden.
Shame. Mirage kind of rubbed me the wrong way, so to speak.
some were green, some were purple, some were brown
Is this a crap load of fold quartz? Explains how the song was transmitted to trigger Var syndrome.
I feel you anon I woke up with GIRI GIRI AI going off in my head today.
If Mirage becomes a singer then it means that one idol dies or they one of the idol becomes a pilot or one of the pretty boys joins Delta squadron or a new character joins Delta squadron.
>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.
>tried to create cultural art/decorations for an ancient advance alien specie
>IT MADE NO SENSE HUR, IT IS MAGIC AND IT IS LIKE SHIT HUR.
Meanwhile in the real world, westerners often use the word mystic to describe Buddhist temples and ceremonies. Macross zero was totally wasted on you fuccbois
Why does the Giri Giri Ai remind me of Ricky Martin?
