>Macross II actually being acknowledged
Also these things
Possibly indirectly confirming the boys will sing as well? We'll find out
>The staff also presented the official designs by Shōji Kawamori for the two main variable fighters: the VF-31 Siegfried and the SV-262 Draken III. The VF-31 is flown by the Walküre group. Kawamori confirmed that the VF-31 is an update of the YF-30 Chronos that appeared in the Playstation 3 video game Macross 30: Voices across the Galaxy. However, unlike the YF-30 the VF-31 design has built-in gunpods in its arms and forward-swept wings.
>The SV-262 is used by the Aerial Knights Valkyrie fighter team of the Kingdom of Wind. The new variable fighter design was inspired by the real-life Saab 35 Draken. While describing the SV-262, Kawamori mentioned that this is the first time that a Valkyrie with this unique delta wing design variant has appeared in Macross. Hidetaka Tenjin also noted that unlike other Valkyries its cockpit is not transparent
Ishtar gets acknowledged all the time, just none of that other shit.
That is because Ishtar is love.
>That is because Ishtar is love.
Well that's true
Sharon has many forms.
Let's blow up that tumblr to a decent resolution.
I've known for years and I still say he's better than all the actual females in the show.
The closest he's gotten to a singing trap so far is Gepelnitch.
Getting back to MII, it was actually Mikimoto who was responsible for the first femboy character in the franchise.
What are those?
Kawamori did reference it in a few episodes of M7. One example is the song playing in the background of this scene.
Kawamori himself has acknowledged it in several instances throughout the years.
At least he's still nice to look at.
I've always liked Macross II. Story wasn't spectacular, but the Valkyries were hot, and Macross Cannon anyone?
Now lets discuss that train wreck of a show Macross 7... and Zero was weak sauce.
>Is this really all it takes for you people
Yes? I fail to see the issue with liking an /m/ series for the mechanical designs, since they're nothing to write home about otherwise. Also, why the exclamation point?
Oh. Really? I can't seem to find it on Youtube, so I'll have to do some more digging.
That's all kinds of cool, since that's my favorite Minmay song for reasons that are beyond my understanding.
I actually think II's are cooler than 7's. Most of the ones in 7 are too rounded weird to me.
Sorry it was supposed to be a question mark.
It's just that I find it hard to like an /m/ show just for mecha designs. I mean, if I think the mechanical designs are good then yeah, that's one thing but if I don't like everything else, I wouldn't like the show. Recs are made on /m/ sometimes but when I watch the show it turns out the only good thing was the robots
Understandable. For people like me though, as long as there are a couple good looking robots or one really great looking one, I don't mind other aspects being mediocre or even terrible, especially if the thing in question is short
Other than the original SDF series, it's not like Macross ever amounted to much in the story department, and even then the story was
-reluctant protag meets babe who will be idol
-he meets not idol babe
-idol babe makes aliens go crazy
-big ass final battle.
>not using best Sharon
>Confirmed stuff we already know
>Doesn't say whether or not it's still classified as a Variable Super Dimension Diver
I'm still really, really curious if the Siegfried inherited all the fold quartz super special powers that the Chronos had.
Especially since this is the first time we've had a special snowflake fold quartz-equipped machine get mass produced.
Apparently they do anything with potential /y/ material. Alto-hime is obviously an easy target.
When I first got into Frontier, I was hoping Alto would be more like Yellow: a mature, self-confident, career crossdresser.
