Taking bets on which idol has the worst backstory.
For the anon who asked in the earlier thread - the artist is also in charge of original character design.
it's gonna be eldar end, and there's nothing you can do to stop it!
I hope we meet his older sisters soon.
>go to a local tracker I used to translate shit from english for
>all threads consist of people whining 'what have macross become'
What the fucking fuck?
Mirage had total 15 seconds of screen time in the first episode. We know almost nothing about her so far except for that li . We can only guess is that her personality is somewhat bitchy and she is probably a typical tsundere. She also has shitty hair style and shitty hair colour. Average face. Small breasts. Absolutely nothing special.
On the other hand we got a big introduction for Freyja. We learned about her personality, her goals and dreams. She has beautiful 2-colour hair with ahoge and even a hair tentacle. She has beautiful voice and she can emit sparkles when singing. It's still not much, but at least it's something everyone can love.
Yet you all fuckers pick Mirage because "muh Jenius genes", "older girl always win". Fuck you all. You can stick to Mirage if you want, you don't deserve Freyja. You just can't appreciate girls and your favouritism is completely worthless.

>gone full mahou shoujo, I see
>thanks for comments, ain't downloading it
With only two positive being
>in my opinion, that's a completely logical continuation of the series
>ain't frontier, but combination of video and music is really good and that's what macross is about

I don't get what you posting Freyja has to do with best girl OP. Next time you start a thread use this picture instead.
I called it. Best girl since pre-air episode.
Daily reminder that Bogue did nothing wrong
why does she act like a slut when she see a mecha?
What's Phi-chan doing in this series?
We expected Kawamori to be an uncreative hack and so far, not surprised.
Talented underdog protag: check. Sweet, flighty, insecure heroine: check. Stronk, determined and independent womayn who ends up wining the triangle: check.
On the otherhand, Kawamori keeps threatening to throw us for a loop so we'll see if this is only an elaborate ruse (hero might end up gay or something).
He's had decades to do something different, why do you think he should change something that doesn't seem to be broken?
Why does /m/ despise Robotech so much? Everyone here hates it. Admittedly it has flaws. The show was still important historically though. Robotech paved the way for anime in the West. Only heavily localized anime was viable in the 80s. Bringing Macross over unaltered might easily have fizzled. Or worse, turned the demographic against anime. That was too risky at the time. Even just doing a straight dub might have failed. Cringe at "protoculture" fuel if you want but it's not that bad. Hate is too strong a reaction. X-men had loads of stupid shit and people don't hate it. . Crap like that is minor. Objectively, Robotech and Macross are almost the same. Macross fans hate to admit it but it's basically true.
All said, there are worse Westernized mecha shows. Like Toonami SEED. Like British Bright. Like those lying ZZ subs. All worse than Robotech. Undeniably so IMO. Garbage, all of it.
Harmony Gold are dicks with the IP. I play Battletech, I know. No arguments. Gotta keep that seperate from the show itself though.
Is this the show where all the races live together in peace?
Probably hasn't explained yet but can Zendredi/Human hybrids be "macronized"?
Also, I recall seeing Zendredi children on Frontier so are they also trying to repopulate like the humans did after space war I?
Why Mikumo is not the main heroine instead of Mikage?
Its an allusion to max/milla from SDF Macross.
The boobs are distracting you. You're thinking with your dick
Makimaki is basically Delta's equivalent of pic related
She lacks tentacles.
And then Galaxy cyborg shows up.
There is tragedy in her past. Expect at least one episode of angst. Or going full AimoRanka.
Ask 7's flover girl.
Afaik any protoculture descent race can.
This actually migh be a carrier for var, with music/song being trigger. Kinda like vajra bacteries, it allows for fold interference with host.
With better skirt thrusters.
Your chart is completely wrong
That is part of the fun
You know only Zero and Frontier are the only ones to have two girls as singers right?
To be fair, Kawamori's never had the second girl be a pilot before.
as much as i enjoyed it during frontier run..
i loath and dread to step in the waifu war again on macross series, if otakus are president, waifu war surely will end in a world war, the delusions, autism and nerd rage during shipping war of frontier was borderline crazy.
I am at least 80% sure they will sing
The first piece of evidence is that at least two of the boys are voiced by seiyuu who also sing, namely the red one who is voiced by KENN.
The second piece of evidence is this one
> rankafags on /a/
They won't give up, just like Noefags.
same excuse everytime rankafags, no worries, keep licking your wound the damage is done and the war has ended.
just like how japan is still salty as fuck with the atomic bomb and lost to the US i guess?
>Macross Frontier: Diamond Crevasse (*spoilers* Mikhail's Death)
Thanks god uploader warned me about spoilers in his video. Otherwise I would watch it and find out that Mikhail dies.
>Otherwise I would watch it and find out that Mikhail dies.
I'm not mad about the confession, I'm mad about the movies for other reasons. I prefer to fap to Ranka, does that make me a Rankafag.
That being said, I still find Sheryl too manly in some scenes.
>Playing devil's advocate for a moment; the synchronized mech dancing was quite silly.
If the mecha exist in real life, it would be done by our military too. Synchronised performance is a thing with the airforce, the problem is planes have limits of what it could do compared to Battroids.
>Noe deserved to win that fagboy
Nah, better away from him.
Will the most powerful idol make an appearance?
Reminder that they are effectively immortal and now travel the universe singing.
>any blood relations
You think Emilia/Sivil managed to get his pants down?
That's why I liked Sheryl, there's just no way she was really 17 despite the lolanime-ism of characters never being allowed to be over 20.
The episode 01 aired today too? every volumes are in the top 100 again
uh dont you even know how serious and cool macross is supposed to be???
Because Basara sort of existed outside the bounds of the plot. That said if every Macross MC was Basara then most of them would only be a few episodes long because of how overpowered he is.
Basara only won me over in the last five minutes of 7.
It was then that I truly understood how great he is.
You know there's like a bajillion official arts of Basara and Mylene together right?
>Should I choose between the handsome older gentleman who treats me like an actual woman, doesn't do things to constantly piss me off and actually likes me for who I am or the hardheaded bandmate who clearly doesn't give a fuck about anything other than music after all the time we've been together and constantly calls me a kid
Such a fucking difficult choice
Girls like being treated like shit, especially young and naive ones.
Gamlin x Basara is superior anyway.
She is. Pity she's gonna lose.
>yfw the inevitable episode where she gets demoted from pilot to idol shit bait
>To be fair, Kawamori's never had the second girl be a pilot before.
I want to start a family with this space elf.
I disagree, for 2008 the CG in Frontier was more or less about the best of what you'd see in TV anime. Compare to what GONZO was doing around then.
the dancing valkyrie sequence which is amking everyone lose their heads looks really, REALLY bad, those fucking textures are PS2 tier
not exactly the best impression for the debut of the show
Besides the music, the side love stories are the best parts. I'm really excited for this series to keep that tradition alive because love triangles can get so old sometimes. I'm pretty hyped for this show being some good fun for the next few months.
Why are the Zentradi so lewd?
No again. CG in PS2 game look nothing like this. Just play Final Fantasy XII or God of War (2 best looking game of PS2) and you can clearly see that it doesn't look like this. (it's worst)
Maybe it;s because Frontier shots are from BD and the Delta are some low quality mpeg-2 TV broadcast, but Frontier just looks so much sharper overall. Could also be stills verse motion, but the entire fight on planet Arabia was way too dark.
So I just watched the pilot and I like it alot more than I thought I would. Then again I also liked Cross Ange so~~~
Anyways the only exposure to Macross I have is the bestest PS2 game, Robotech Battecry.
How do I get into the franchise?
Super Dimensional Fortress Macross (1982). Anyone getting into Macross now has it better than 2008, because almost the entire franchise is out on BD, versus just Macross Zero.
Das rite. Better than needing to watch 0079 (1979) for getting into Gundam, assuming you're going for TV and not the movie trilogy.
So, what's Mikumo's deal. Place your bets.
1) A character from a previous series in disguise: Ranka, Sheryl? Unlikely to be Mylene, since Mirage would recognize her aunt.
2) Robot, Mayuyu style. Bonus points if she the sentient core of a Macross battleship.
3) Protodeviln or some other exotic alien being.
4) Ordinary human/zentradi, with the reason for her info being withheld being relatively mundane.
Sorry, but he does. 8( Look at the other green in AKB0048 - linda hardly had any time. Gould in Plus was a rapist that killed himself, Ranka was shit on, end she wasn't that bad of a character. I could go on, and I am not the other OP.
Just don't Expect green to EVER win ANY triangle from Kawamori...
I'm placing my hopes on 2, Macross needs more AI shenanigans.
The first episode had the trademark Macross mech designs and spectacular combat scenes but.... it all just gets ruined by those floating and singing idols (complete with magical transformations) who apparently have magical powers and can shield themselves from cannon fire not to mention surviving some pretty devastating blasts while glowing like some dumb fairy. This pretty much makes using Variable Fighters and Mechs somewhat useless if some dumbass magical plot point says 1 single singer can obliterate entire fleets with a magical love beam......Jesus who the hell thought adding "magical girl" theme was a great idea for a Macross anime ?!
Reminder that Mikumo is also green.
What's even the point of all the other 3 literally whos we all know will never have screentime, focus or presence and whatever little they will end up having will be super half-assed because all the focus is on Mikumo, Freyja and Mirage?
Likewise for the Hair-Gummy fuccboi squad. Why are these so many? Just for more half-assed romance attempts with the literally whos and then dramatic love triangles with their platoon-guys except no one will give a fuck about these either because all people care is Hayato/Freyja/Mirage triangle?
Fucking hell Kawamori.

goddamit, Bakuon and Macross are killing this season so far. Still waiting for Unicorn BD.
Not necessarily a robot, but an AI idol would be a nice callback to Sharon.
This desu. I'd be really fucking hyped for this show if they removed Hayato and Freyja, and just had cool fights with the rest. But I can smell the shitty love triangle and relationship drama just from this first episode.
None of that is magic. It's all technology. Especially the clothes changing, that is straight from Frontier. It just looks flashy
>1 single singer can obliterate entire fleets with a magical love beam
If by singer you mean the Valks, then yes.
The only things destroying the Regults were the VFs. The singers just turn the Var Syndrome off
>What's even the point of all the other 3 literally whos we all know will never have screentime, focus or presence
Hey we don't know that. AKB0048 has like a huge as fuck cast and while some of the girls didn't get the same level as others, they were all properly characterized by the end
I've not actually watched a Macross show before. If it really feeds off love triangles and relationship drama, then I'm glad I just look at the pretty mech designs and webms.
Try out Macross Plus if you want to see the serious side of Macross. It really doesn't need a lot of introduction, other than why they're not on Earth, or what's going on with the giant robot at the end, or why that guy voiced by Richard Epcar is blueish grey with elf ears. Or why Walter White is the MC.
So I'm calling this now: At some point in time some of Walkure will fall victim to Var Syndrome. Green's pilot will go insane, killing her in the process. Mirage will have a drawn out dogfight with MC before he brings her out of it with UNDERSTANDING and LOVE.
Freyjafags will commit mass suicide after the episode ends.
>I've not actually watched a Macross show before
Oh come on man.
>Telling a guy who doesn't like relationship drama to start with Plus, the series that is literally the most hamfisted relationship drama in the whole franchise
Like at least tell him to start with the first one where it's not as annoying
Actually I forgot, I did see the first few episodes of the first one a while back, and they were pretty great(not sure what sidetracked me). I'll get right back to that then. Thanks.
>I was the rapist.
I need to make it clear
This was the worst twist in an anime when it comes to a relationship I've ever seen and I'm pretty sure it ruined the OVA for me.
Like, beautiful animation, beautiful mechs but fuck everything else
For maximum sad make it completely unceremonious. They'll be on the middle of a song and he'll just reach up and crush her out of nowhere. For even more sad on top of that: he'll live long enough to be brought back, and then kill himself anyway.
yfw when Delta squadron all die just like in macross 7 expect one character because of some cosmic plot armor.
>some cosmic plot armor
no? he want in the enemy's army.
I think Messer and Kaname are (or could be in) a relationship so that would be pretty sad
The protodeviln option actually starts to make more sense the more you think about it.
>does crazy stunts, gets blown the fuck up and buried under rubble, doesn't have a scratch
>"song energy" technology in general, the protodeviln were taught about singing before they left at the end of 7
its honestly better this way he can choose between a pilot or an idol,like how it was in the first Macross . sasuga Kawamori
WHAT 'BOUT MY STAAAAAR WHAT 'BOUT MY STAAAAAAAAAR
Planet Haram is not where the story takes place
Why wasn't Klan going to their school in the actual show? I don't think it would have changed much and could have led to more shenanigans
I know right? I honestly think they would have been cool with it
characters in mecha shows never go to school
Kamille went to school exactly zero times and the only time judau showed up was so he could jump out the window to fight a mobile suit
They went to school a lot in the first third of the show. I was saying that Klan was not one of their schoolmates unlike in the movie and I think it could have worked
back then there was no such thing as a pure waifu, unless her one and only trait was actually being a virgin.
why do you think dragons always went after virgins? neither of them existed
Are you the same fag that did the gritty realism macross pasta? Weren't you boasting about how you were going to troll the shit out of /a/?
If this is your grand master plan then I'm seriously disappointed in it anon
Find me one source that describes the goddess Freyja fucking dwarves for her necklace. That's right, you can't. The human Freyja is an entirely different entity and it's all coincidence, now leave.
>Newton and the apple
I think it's referencing Freyja's apple crate
I want to eat an apple she peed over
>goddamit, Bakuon and Macross are killing this season so far. Still waiting for Unicorn BD.
Spring premieres aren't even done yet; there's still Kiznaiver and such
We might get some unexpected surprise hit
>literally cannot stop listening to this song
