>yfw Symphogear and AKB0048 were just training ground for this
Pretty much, the VFs danced with the idols along with a load of other robots and whatever else magical mcguffins the idols can produce.
What can I say, it's very Macross?
>so we're getting a VF-geah?
The Idols get special equipment. In many ways you can call them magical girls, if magical girls have all their "magic" equipment simulated using mechanical devices. If they have advanced technology and want to make magical girls minus the magic, you get the idol group in Macross Delta.
This was honestly the next step for the idol aspect of the franchise to go in.
And yeah, I can't help but feel AKB0048 had some role to play in this
Next season, the VFs ARE the idols
>Next season, the VFs ARE the idols
So VF-themed Strike Witches clones?
I just wanna see a Monster and Tomahawk geah
well, just strapping on a super pack on a girl has worked before in Macrosss
>You're fired and today's your last day so work hard
>And yeah, I can't help but feel AKB0048 had some role to play in this
Just as the Valks are imitating real planes, the idols are imitating real idols. That's how Macross stay relevant. The idols and the planes change with the times, but they are still idols and planes.
>You know I'm talking about AKB0048 the anime right?
And I am talking about idol groups, which AKB48, the 3DPG version, made famous. Frankly it didn't matter you were talking about the anime version.
>Can hear colors
>Apparently gets high or aroused by aidoru singing
The Protoculture have some weird ideas on what a species should be like.
Now, will Delta have 10/10 idol combat scenes?
The Zents and Protodevlin didn't lose their mind when they get high over the music though.
The Zents stop to fanboy over the aidoru, the Protodevlin orgasms right there.
She gets high/aroused, then runs off to the battle with no regards for her own safety just so she can sing. It's like she has the opposite of the Var Syndrome where she loses her self-preservation instinct instead of becoming violent when exposed to enough songs.
From the very beginning, we had Idols who sing in battle. But up to now singing in battle had always been a side job. The Idols concerned had always being stage performers, who only participate in wars on an occasional basis.
Macross Delta bring what we could call Professional Combat Divas. Unlike amateurs like Minmay or Sheryl, these new breed of singers are expected to perform under missile fire, and it shows. Previously Idols had to have been forced to participate in military engagements, but in Delta it has now become a proper career path.
>This was honestly the next step for the idol aspect of the franchise to go in.
In an alternate, better universe, the Macross franchise takes a hard left and its idols venture into hardcore gangster rap.
>mfw "manime' bitching and groaning
>I was just wondering if there was any actual gang that uses that handsign.

The CG animation was fine for the VFs but the textures need to be improved and they probably will be since the episode is still incomplete. I thought the character animation for everything else was great. Especially with Freya, she's too damn cute.
>I must say Macross Frontier is already looking like a timeless masterpiece
It always did.
Speaking of colors 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. 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.
I never stopped listening to your song Basara-sama
Basara was a Gary Stu who flew a valkyrie with a guitar and looked like the love child or Rick Hunter and Goku ran a train on Max.
For that alone Macross 7 can be forgiven for it's shit story line.
Macross Frontier and Delta were complete shit. They are like TFA if TFA was made by MTV instead of Disney and had to incorporate gay rights issues.
>They are like TFA if TFA was made by MTV instead of Disney and had to incorporate gay rights issues.
>"It's shit, it's shit, it's shit!"
>"I know anon, everything's shit.."
the second song is catchy though
Maybe when you watch the complete episode and more you'll change your mind.
>mfw I'm getting A/Z flashbacks when retards said the exact same thing towards anything negative said about
>looking at Delta's staff
Oh this is gonna be scrumptious.
Oh look it's that buttmad Gundam anon from the MS vs VF thread and he's posting the exact same image again with another inflammatory post. You really have nothing better to do then troll in Macross threads huh?
I think it looks different enough. The way the canards fold over the shoulders, the wings folding up, the underwings becoming shields for battroid is all pretty unique. It's a nice mix of the VF-25 and VF-22.
sure is a common image here and not just used by you to shitpost about macross
>a common reaction image,
It's still test footage according to Tenjin.
Threadly reminder that this is one guy shitposting and you all should keep an eye on the post counter everytime this kinda shit shows up.
Pic related from last thread
Yea, and I was wondering if there was anyone or group that will be subbing it. Or is fansub truly dead except for Dragon Ball.
I think a lot of it has to do with the CGI, so when the VF 31 was flying around, it looked eerily similar to the 25.
Can't wait to see more of it in action.

maybe not for episode 1, but moving forward..?
Anon I know you don't want to believe the posts are different but you have to.
what? no. No complaints about Delta at all.
Posting Delta stuff to counter this off topic faggot.
it was kinda multipurpose on the 30, just a weapons-only selection
now you know how Dr McCoy always felt about the Vulcan salute.
are they not selling them yet, where someone can post the transformation?
I think the better question is why do all these fleets keep developing next gen VFs and then only give them to 1 or 2 squads instead of developing an upgrade for the 171 or an MP VF-24
NUNS have them too.
>hardpoints on the wings
>can mount an MDE beam cannon
It has two missing internal missile launchers and no longer has the arm beam guns but other than that it's superior in every way.
From last thread:
Chuck Mustang's Yellow VF-31 is actually an RVF-31 with a fold-out radome in its weapon pod. Pretty sure that means it lacks a proper gunpod but it has the folding arm miniguns so that's not too bad.
Praying that shitty blocky VF-11 style booster isn't the VF-31's official Super Pack.
>YFW Macross Delta, Gendum Thunder Bolt, IBO and Cross Ange
SRW T(rain wreck)
That pilot will yell: "What shit taste for idols music!"
And Mirage's weapon container contains her gunpod on the right side. So presumably she can remove the gunpod from the mount, as we see Hayate's VF-31A doing so during the PV. But that means she can also fire it from the back mount, which is pretty cool and similar to the YF-29, especially if it has a higher discharge mode.
One thing I hope for, is the ability to put a missile launcher in the left side instead of the idol boomerang recharger. Unfortunately, it seems that the gunpod mount is too large to fit a second one though, so only no dual beam cannon like the YF-29.
And a mobileposter at that
She wasn't even the best singer in her own anime.
The fuck was this? This has taken a new level in "the fucking shit did I just watch?".
The CGI wasn't god at all (especially after watching Fafner) and the whole world has become one big joke. Still I'm going to watch this and I'm probably going to like it anyway.
But fuck, macross you have fallen
Where are you getting this from? because from what I was looking at the 17 is faster, already had PPB (pretty sure it uses it in SRW also), and already had 6 wing hardpoints. MDE is a non factor considering it didn't even exist when the 17 was developed
Ends up unmarried maid of the Bridge Bunnies, gets promoted to Lt. General and in command of the Macross 13 Earth defense fleet when Grace launched her galaxy wide invasion. Had to fight Vajra while Ranka and Sheryl get their groove on.
No mention of hardpoints or pinpoint barrier for the VF-17.
The fact that they now have singers flying around in magic dresses with "super powers"(yeah yeah i know it's probably some clever gadget) acting like space cops while some random guys dance in fighter planes?
I mean every previous incarnation of the series atleast had the feeling like it was some form a realistic-ish world with fighter plane setting and music thrown in (usually in some random way). But now it's become Symphogear, with girls flying around and bursting out of the ruble in their dresses while singing.
The YF-24 was deemed a failure as it tends to get test pilots killed. One of the prototypes proved useful to test the Inertial Store Converter. Shinsei Industries later distribute the design to fleets to tinker with. Earth's local VF-19s are a match or better than the VF-25.
How soon until he dies
>I mean every previous incarnation of the series atleast had the feeling like it was some form a realistic-ish world with fighter plane setting and music thrown in (usually in some random way).
So you didn't watch 7? Because there's nothing in the first episode that feels out of the ordinary for Macross.
Macross 13 is a fleet not just one ship. The Saratoga and VF-X Ravens were attached to it. Lactence hijacked Macross/Battle 13 to maintain control of the defense grid but Aegis Focker attacked the bridge disabling the anti-FCS Sound Jamming System allowing Vindirance to blow it up. The fleet is still around and probably got a replacement flagship.
Look anon, You either get what I ment or you don't (and I don't see how you can comepare flying magical girls to anything that macross 7 did, not to mention that macross 7 is NOT excactly Macross's finest hour).
I don't care for the whole troll and bait talk that your trying to pull me into so I'll just stop replying from now on.
how is a transforming fighter plane piloted by a guitar that defeats its foes by singing to them any worse than a bunch of girls with transforming fighter plane body guards who defeat their foes by singing to them. they're not even as clearly supernatural as the protodevlin
I'm not trolling because there's nothing out of the ordinary in Delta that hasn't been shown before in Macross. Clothes that magically transformed? Happens in DYRL. Singing to the enemy in the middle of a battlefield? Happens in 7. Skirts with jet thrusters? Happened in Frontier.
tiem for moer Kim!
he's gonna die to set up some rivalry
I think kawamori thinks we think he will kill off kakiza--i mean yellow shark guy so he'll probably live. I dont think anyone else will die
Also is the MC really piloting a VF-31A while everyone else has one of the 'better' versions? what a scrub
I was wondering why there were six Drakens while there are five Aerial Knights.
>One head beamgun
That shit is a VF-31A all the way. Even
Miragehas a better variant, since her'shas two beam headguns at least.
>even RVF-31 has two guns
Blunder of the century?
every MC pilot has to start at the bottom.
Except Basara. He's... special.
Again Macross 7 is not a precedent or excuse for this bullshit and is no way the same as Delta.
M7 had better singers and music which is still good to this day.
M7 had Max and Millia
Did I mention Planet Dance..fuck yeah saturday night. suck my macross dick you stupid cunt were gonna blow up zentradi tonight. no more wasting time arguing with bitches online just groove to the planet dance.
M7 had Millia pilot her original valkyrie
Just found out that the half-Zentradi captain Ernest Johnson is voiced by Ishizuka Unshou who also voiced Guld Bowman in Macross Plus. No wonder he sounded oddly familiar.
we came close once
And Delta is mecha too. There was more mecha action than Idols singing in this first episode. And Walkure didn't take any mecha out on foot unless you consider singing them back to their senses as taking them out.
True but there was a big focus on the idols regardless. They were right there in the action, and giving out buffs to the valks. They are like green mages or something. Really a lot cooler than I thought itd be.
Place your bets on whose daughter she is.
As retarded as Macross 7 was (in the best way possible), they never resorted to Mylene's face turning blue, her mouth enlarging to twice the size of her head, her eyes turning into lines, or her popping in and out of existence in a group of people.
Good god, modern anime is such shit.
The dancing virtual idols make my dickhard, artbook/concept art when?
>Why are we always getting halfs? When do we get a full Zentraedi main character?
It is very likely Zentraedi and Meltlan had no real reason to interbreed in the first generation after the war. Depending on which interpretation of the story you watch, they could also have political issues with each other initially.
Either way, it is very likely all the future generations mostly were caused by breeding with Earthlings. I can definitely see that humans ended up being the ones to court them, with the Zentraedi unfamiliar with courtship. Won't be surprised if Maximilian Jenius started a popular trend to fuck them.
He was in a D because Roy was going to take him up in order to try and convince him to join the force.
Once he joined up he was in an A for the battle in Saturn's rings.
He got a J once Vermillion Squad was formed.
I think he didn't get an S until after Roy died.
>Do you even Onyanko Club ?
AKB48 applies to my point better. AKB isn't just a large group, but a large group that performs daily in live theatres, thus allowing fans to see them any time they want. The large group in this case serves as a way to rotate the performers, allowing individuals to rest. So there is a method to the madness.
