Freyja is the cutest!
Is it Sunday yet? I need more Freyja in my life.
It's already sunday in Japan.
Needs to collect more screenshots of Kanade in the new ep
>Mistaken the best girl in macross delta to the best girl in Joukamachi
Guilty as charged, welp it's already midnight here so time to sleep for me then.
People who created those charts are stupid newfags.
Technically it's indeed a sequel (since it's the same universe and timeline), but you don't need to watch previous entries to understand and enjoy it. Delta features completely new characters on completely different side of the galaxy.
Here's what you need to know about the franchise before watching Delta:
>there will always be jpop
>there will always be transformable fighter jets
>there will always be a love triangle
>music is overpowered
>stay away from pineapples
>ship wars are cancer
Now you're all set to watch Delta.
Captain whatever the fuck his name is is half Zent and he's green as fuck. Zent papa lineage hints at making you a fucking leaf in colour. It's probably more to do with elf ears being a dominant trait.
New macross fans here, the shitposting in current and previous macross threads were really tame compared to Re:Zero and Bokumachi threads. Just be glad Macross delta currently has a lot of fans and more new fans will watch this, unlike fafner exodus threads without any replies on /a/ few seasons ago.
Pic unrelated, this single pic from early thread made me watched and marathoned Macross Delta, Frontier, Zero, and SDF.
>People who created those charts are stupid newfags.
Found the retard.
In macross universe, any pilot will die if they eat pineapple salad and will seriously wounded if they eat pineapple cake.
i thought you're talking about the sub group
We had preview episode since January. We had basic gist on the setting since Autumn. Yet every single anime chart (and even youtube reviews) contain a simple synopsis of "it is set eight years after the events of Macross F." Those people clearly know nothing about Macross.
Ah my bad. I thought you were talking about this.
The one in 7 was forced. I hope we don't get any of this shit.
Original photoshop psd file of the chart in case anyone wants to edit/temper it.
Do they look like they care?
Going by this definition Freyja's costume from >>139868725 is completely fine.
Mikumo is a total slut though and should be stoned to death.
VF-171s are still good!
>knees should be covered
>No overt display of affection
Makimaki fixing a valkyrie
>No dangerous activities
Bottom right pic
>No pets are allowed
Freyja in the walkure
They did everything wrong and should've executed by stoning.
The VF-171 is relegated to be crappy mook status just like the VF-11. The only time they're decent is when MC jumps in for a quick battle like Alto or Isamu did for the respective airframes.
Faggot who's only seen frontier here. When did the girls start flying?
It's actually in Frontier movies. They have rocket thrusters under the skirts.
Also note that only Mikumo does all the crazy stunts. All other idols mostly stay in the same place or do the most simple jumping. Mikumo is definitely not a human.
If the show wanted to be an idol anime so badly they should get rid of the mediocre and awful looking mecha battles with its shit plot, just focus on the idol and no one will complain, the mix of both is just awful.
Does this look like a robot to you?
It's not just idols + mecha. It's idols + mecha + romance. 10/10 combination.
It's just like all good dished are combination of several ingredients. And several musical instruments always sound better together than separately.
I just noticed that her hair is stylized to look like mermaid tail. Character designer is a goddess.
Absolutely not. There would be no contest because Mikumo would 100% steal the show.
In a way it would be interesting because that would essentially be Hi-spec Sheryl vs. Pilot Misa but I think Mikumo is standing out the most because she will get her own subplot
>watching original sdf, 2 ep in
>engines took off on their own
>aliens don't really want to attack them
>mc steals plane and spends almost whole episode destroying girls room and nearby houses
First episode is so beautifully retarded, it took me weeks of determination to watch it and still almost dropped it. I wanted to to punch Hikaru in the face with a shovel through the whole show.
Just wait till Freyja starts singing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xKiu30uKR7s inside main Windermerian battle cruiser while Pretty Boy squad annihilates Delta pilots and rest of the idorus.
Hikaru is a special kind of retarded.
Why is he such a baka?
I just remembered that Ranka is responsible for destruction of at least heavy 3 battle ships and 2 islands.
Best girl, my ass.
Why wasn't she executed at the end of the TV series?
Isn't it beautiful? I fucking love SDF.
>accidentally warped the surrounding ocean and fleet to Pluto
Remember this when people try to tell you Macross is a super serious space drama.
Because she was controlled by Grace and singlehandedly saved the collective asses of humanity?
Remember that Sheryl "Special Snowflake" Nome was dying on the deck of Frontier not giving a fuck about the battle until Ranka healed her space AIDS?
>Entire war with Zentraedi is based off a misunderstanding because the Protoculture forgot to turn the safety on
Macross was supposed to be a Supervision Army gunboat, designed to defect and defeat Protoculture's Zentradi. I mean, the entire canon is probably beyond fucked now, but that's supposedly why it fired without any input.
Supervision Army (Remember those guys? If they were merely Zentradi brainwashed by Protodevlin, why do they have different technology?) intentionally rigged the ship so it would fire on the Zentradi when Zentradi show up to cause damage to them and start the conflict between Zentradi and the miclone planet.
It seems Green is going to have as much character development as Veffidas

I don't know about breaking the pattern. But I am wary at certain things will not play out the way we think
>The Macross Delta logo features a planet within the Japanese characters that form the word "Macross". Shoji Kawamori specifically noted that this planet is the main setting for the new series. He also explained that this was made deliberately in direct contrast with Macross Frontier, whose setting was primarily in space. Kawamori started to describe more details about Macross Delta's setting but stopped short and asked fans to watch "The Super Dimension" Production Unveiling event.
>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 Valkyries. However, he also 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.
Why are there so much Macross stuff? How does this compare to Frontier?
Best gril even shows trigger discipline.
I wish he would come back to work on Kamen Rider, Gaim was great.
Orange (12 episodes)
Premium Agency (eps 2-3)
Satelight (20 episodes)
Studio BACU (eps 2, 20-21)
TLIP (9 episodes)
Wao World (eps 21, 25)
Now wonder the CG is better on Frontier.
That's a sub group I haven't seen in a long while. Am I in for dank memes?
Does this look like binary code to you?
I miss you, boo.
GO TO HELL, WALKURE!!
So who is making soundtrack for Delta? I can't find any info.
Yellow camellias are a symbol of longing and waiting for the one you want.
I just marathoned SDF and god Kaifun is such a colossal cunt.
Hikaru is a faggot on a semi regular basis too but he still pales in comparison.
Sterlingis worse. He stole my first waifu and I'm still mad.
Mina Kubota (Aria the Animation, Kaleido Star)
Saeko Suzuki (Sgt. Frog, Rinne no Lagrange)
TOMISIRO (Rinne no Lagrange)
>both of these are taken out of context
How am I taking the DYRL one out of context? That's from the beginning of the movie. He ends up there because he intentionally left his post
I wouldn't even mind if they spammed it as hard as they did Planet Dance in Macross 7
Imagine Freyja singing aimo battle ver. in the future
>Sheryl and Ranka's cameo in Walkure
YES YES YES
Did she sing the song? All the three girls in the picture sang that cursed song and lost.
Literally what the fuck did I just watch? Of all the series this season, Macross Delta was the last one I thought I would drop after the first episode.
>Did she sing the song?
Yes. Freyja hasn't sang it yet
Probably Iron Blooded Orphans.
Thank you kind anons.
Robotech got weird. But I don't recall them actually getting divorced, just having a weird psychic spacebaby while out with the Expeditionary Force. But it's been years since I read those novels.
They took the moe/idol knob and cranked it to 11. Loved the scene where people were being slaughtered and mass collateral damage were happening while four cringe moe idols sing in the streets.
They were not?
The only part where that could have happened is the short moment before Walkure came in and after Bogue's missile strike.
The civilians were being shielded by the Walkure's drones, while they try their hardest to distract the rabid people and succeeding.
>where people were being slaughtered
Where was this?
The entire singing part was also them protecting people with the shield drones. Any time slaughtering could have happened was before Walkure got there and we didn't see any of it
>If they were merely Zentradi brainwashed by Protodevlin, why do they have different technology?
I thought all sorts of humanoids were brainwashed into the Supervision Army, like the original Protoculture.
I finally watched nyankuri and I honestly didn't expect to see view of galaxy's city.
Cant' be helped, been working 10 hours + all week.
Like all other entries in Macross, it's very different from its predecessor
Is the Ex-Gear still a thing?
You can see the shoulder pieces that form part of the armor behind the seat.
Ex-Gears were my favorite new tech of Frontier
Best Jenius sister right here
because the greedy faggots who run CrunchyRoll aren't about to pay out their assholes for Macross, which is tied heavily into Japanese music industry and their outrageous contracts.
Macross without TL's of the deculture would be fucking stupid and miss half the point of the show: JPOP IS PROOOOOOTOCULTURE
I'm not the best expert on Macross lore, and I've never shaken all the Robotech alterations out of my system (still keep trying to call them Veritechs), but it's been pointed out that the Macross series is very good about carrying forward new tech as the timeline advances.
Like, the Walkure are using well established devices like holographic costumes and point defense shields. It's all just more miniaturized and combined in new ways.
We don't know yet.
It was the same for the first episode of Frontier, but after that one, there was a ton of references, even entire episodes about old Macross series.
Not unless you want to learn more about the lore and spot references.
I hope that they can compete with Frontier's. That would be amazing if they could, and anon was wrong about them blowing their load with Ikenai Battleline.
Except the first OP, which was kinda forgettable and generic.
>blaming sheryl for being agonizing when it was Ranka's fault she got that bad and she nearly sung herself to death to save Ranka's green ass instead of having vaporized her like Alto WANTED to do
Stay classy Rankafag. The only thing green shit did was to return the favor.
In theory all seiyuu can sing. They receive diverse vocal training.
Not everybody can sing well, though. That's just sort of how it is. Of course post-recording audio fuckery using the magic of FLAC can make a mediocre singer sound a lot better than they are when they're live...which, yknow, is why lip syncing became such a big part of their performances.
No but Macross Delta will be mostly on the ground unlike the others macross.
I'm really torn about this. Everything until Love's Halation THE WAR was good, Love's Halation THE WAR was fucking horrible and made me want to gouge my eyes out and then after it we had a proper Macross moment that was absolutely gorgeous.
I've been watching Macross stuff for 20 years, I don't know what your problem is.
If Kawamori wants to do retarded idolshit like Love's Halation THE WAR he can just go back and do another AKB0048
AKB0048 had some bright spots though.Not gonna lie, I though the way they handled the succession in the first arc. Also the romance subplot between the Yuka and her old boyfriend was pretty well done. Gave me one hell of a rage though.
But yeah, most of it was pretty shit. They got to far into the whole music=love thing. Songs were okay.
I wouldn't call myself a Macross expert since I've only watched F, but Delta is obviously going to have a lot more romance than AKB0048. In AKB the romance kept to a sub plot because like in real life idols can't have boyfriends.
Other then romance you can probably expect a lot more focus on action and mechs, while AKB was basically the idol life 24/7 with action only during concerts. You can also expect better songs. Though that probably just depends on taste.
Macross idols are not beholden to the same obligations as real world idols. Macross idols are considered a prestigious job because of its role in the very first Space War. Macross idols can date and be public about it.
Will I seriously have to wait for the blu rays for a release that doesn't look like shit?
>Why are they still singing 60 year old songs?
>60 year old songs?
Do you know the story behind this song?
>The pretty boys squad aren't idols nor singers
Not yet they aren't
Compared to these goddess, the unknown girl in your pic looks like a $30 whore in Bangkok.
>not knowing Macross 30
Shut up secondary.
>Macross 30: Voices across the Galaxy is an action role-playing game for the PlayStation 3 developed by Artdink
Silly anon, PS3 has no games
Well let's be honest. I really don't think many people even know Macross 30 was even a thing considering it wasn't exactly a financial seller. People ask "Did Macross do anything for it's 30th anniversary" someone answers "The videogame" and the usual response is "oh that" or "I don't know what that is".
>no macross zero on the cover
>not liking the literal heart boner
>not cutting her hair boner
Step up senpai
Not ded, just doesn't allow too many people in. That's why they tell you to not post the link, because it gets too crowded.
Also cd1212 is not good for this? It shows some fujoshit I think.
>show in not interested in but airs before the one in interested in streams in 720p with maximum smoothly
>show that I want to watch starts
>quality drops to 240p and it starts lagging and skipping
Every fucking time
Come back after you kill delta squad.
thread already 404 posts, I'll create a livestream thread.
How do I know if Macross if right for me?
