How old is she?
I can't find it for some reason (doesn't help that the official website is dead).
I found heights, though, that's something
She'd rather swallow
>cast averages out 6 feet of height or something like that
>even female characters tend to be 170-180 cm tall
It's just Ranka and Luka, but they're the token little sister/fake shota anyway.
I feel like that's how it is because they're not really cars, they're car shaped public transit things for personal use with heavy computer guidance.
Now everything else about Mylene, living on her own, etc, is bullshit.
Honestly I thought 20 (or more). Seeing how she was brought in to judge OTHER idol contests and liked the dispense "sagely wisdom" and whatnot.
No idea though. I assumed she was multiple years older than Alto, but younger than Klan Klang.
I'm surprised there aren't official ages. Didn't the original and 7 have them? Like Misa was confirmed 19 due to her birth date
I always thought Sheryl was a few years older than Alto at least. Since they have a similar "Minmay" and "Misa" thing going on with Ranka/Sheryl
They might've pulled a Tenchi, where ages vary between versions (radically in that case), and the art books are pretty sparing with that information. The only time I've seen ages given for the cast of Tenchi Universe was in an art book for a Sega Saturn game that featured Tsunami of all people.
I think it comes down to just finding the right art book that actually lists that stuff and taking that at its word.
Butt hurt about the first episode of delta?
The fuck is this thing? I saw the Minmay doll, but this thing that's half-covered by the frying pan only appears for like a single frame.
Yeah. It's like how Yoko was supposed to be like only 16 or something according to official ages, but then they said it's actually not correct because nobody on the planet tells time correctly or something.
I dunno. Anime ages are usually bullshit numbers just picked because it's the standard anime age, which characters looking and acting nothing like they're supposed to be.
>but then they said it's actually not correct because nobody on the planet tells time correctly or something.
They said it's because the underground count isn't necessarily right, due to lack of sun, but that doesn't work all that well since it'd mean other characters have lower ages too, which really doesn't work for Simon.
I never noticed it in the series before but when I saw this in the movie it definitely caught my eye.
>taking over day to respond with a retarded half-ass retort
But faggot I can't do that. Your idol waifu will feel betrayed if you don't eat her shit and pass it to someone else.
Keep in mind that Zechs, also voiced by Koyasu, is also 19 during the events of Wing.
It's not just that his sexy fucking voice makes his characters sound older, but the fact that anybody in any anime ever is improbably young in order to appeal more to the teenagers that are the target demographic.
God damn it, Kawamori. You cheeky motherfucker. Why the fuck did you have to go and do that?
GOD DAMN IT, KAWAMORI
FUCK YOU SO HARD
FUCK YOU SO HARD RIGHT NOW
GOD FUCKING DAMN IT
Seriously though, I had this spoiled for me long ago, but it still hits in the fucking feels.
Pray for him anons
Funny thing is, Roy is pretty bland himself too. I dunno why people hype him up. Take your nostalgia glasses off, he barely had any lines and was very randomly offed less than halfway in for no explicable reason.
It's not just that. Roy's death felt so underwhelming, especially because he's touted as the "best" pilot. It's not even that he gets rekt or anything in battle, he just sustains minor injuries to his craft and later dies of blood loss.
How should someone go about watching/getting in to Macross? I remember seeing bits and pieces of Frontier and thought it was pretty interesting.
Don't mean to be a dumbass, but my inane question hardly warrants starting a new thread over.
Macross is literally one of the easiest franchises to go in production order for.
Wikipedia literally has a timeline for when each show came out in a nice big chart so you don't even have to do any research
She's young enough to enroll in Alto's and co's school for a while, yet old enough that she doesn't have to go if she doesn't want to (I think in Japan you can opt out of school earlier than the US, which is 16)
So yeah she's probably like 17-18
Someone red-pill me on this.
How did she become a Miclone almost instantaneously between cuts?
Funny thing is in Frontier era I saw May'n concert video and thought she's old and ugly, with that long and curly hair.
But her new look with short hair is amazing, can't believe it's the same person. Them eyes too.
And thus concludes my Journey Through the Macross (yeah, there's still the movies to watch, which I'll get on to later). This marathon took me far less time than when I went through Gundam a decade ago, it helps that there are only three series instead of 12+.
I don't get the hate for Frontier, it was mediocre at worst but by no means terrible. Sure, Alto's an idiot when it comes to recognizing love, but so was Hikaru, and there weren't any literally worthless characters that only exist to be hated like Katz or Hathaway. The whole kabuki side-plot ended up being a dead end, but it didn't overly detract from the show.
I guess it comes down to the whole "military transforming jets versus singing magical idols" argument that I've seen in every Macross thread. It feels to me that the movies and OVAs are written to pander to the military aspect more, while in the series the idols and singing take center stage. It doesn't make sense to argue about which is more important, you just accept that this is how Kawamori wanted it done.
My only real complaint about Frontier is that the movements of the mecha felt too smooth (not that Gundam is free of such criticism). Things like Klan slapping Michael's Valkyrie in the face and him reacting like he got slapped when in fact he's in the cockpit in the chest, Macross Quarter being so fast and human-like despite being the size of a ship, the shell on Island 1 closing so quickly, those sorts of things. In Macross 7 you see Battle 7's movements being more slow and deliberate, and City 7's shell takes several minutes to close, whereas with Macross Quarter it does things like put away the aviation deck/shield in an instant before firing the Macross Cannon.
As a whole, I can't say that I hated any part of Macross, it feels like a fairly stable franchise. With Gundam there are black sheep like Destiny and AGE, shows you wish you could blue-pill on. Not really the case with Macross, I didn't regret any of it.
>it feels like a fairly stable franchise.
>there are no black sheeps
>As a whole, I can't say that I hated any part of Macross, it feels like a fairly stable franchise.
These. Seriously what the fuck is this idiot talking about? The franchise is the exact opposite of stable and Frontier's biggest problem was that just about everyone was worthless.
The music was perfect.
>Cut the music when he got stabbed
>No music while he guns down the Vajra
>Said Vajra explodes as the music starts at the chorus
>Roll credits as Alto scream MICHEEEEELLLLLLLL
Frontier was good when it came to playing with the music for maximum emotional impact.
Eh, when Zero and some parts of 7 are the worst you can do, that's really not all that bad.
Compared to, say, Gundam's low points (DESTINY, AGE), Zero's pretty much a godsend by comparison.
>that's really not all that bad.
Not really, there's at least some good parts to AGE and Destiny that you just see squandered due to piss poor execution whereas Zero is a failed experiment with very little redeeming qualities and 7 is just mind numbinglu repetitive.
>Other than that, there's not much to it.
That's because that was the whole fucking point of it. Kawamori and Watanabe did a shitton of research (including going to air force bases and talking to crews and pilots) and strived to make it the most accurate representation of fake dogfighting that they possibly could.
If you watched Plus expecting some kind of deep storytelling and complex characters then you completely missed the point of what it was trying to be.
It wasn't an official pic. Long ago, someone here did a pic of SDF characters given the hair color of the Frontier characters (replace Max' blue hair with blond to compare him with Michel, Minmay's blue hair with green to compare her to Ranka, etc.).
I know some of the designs from 7 and plus were reused from a Kawamori-designed model kit line that never saw the light of day. Like the Invader.
And that Escaflowne started off as some strange Macross-esque project as well.
I don't get this image,In real life when we make military weapons nations tend to copy each other when a new innovation is created in the field leading to similar looking equipment.
I know Macross is an anime, but it has a quirk of trying to make sense of the technological development in-universe. So when looking at it from that perspective I don't see the similarities the VF-25 may share with former craft as a con, I think it rather helps to solidify the fact that they want to show the audience this progression of technology so that they can create a believable setting.
It's just showing design cues it has in common with past VFs.
