With Macross Delta coming some time in the future, maybe late 2015 or 2016, I felt it was a good time to watch Macross Frontier again. The last time I watched it was at the end of 2011 so it’s been a while. Overall watching it this time around was a good experience despite being disgusted at the first movie so much I didn’t bother with the second. For that reason I will be mostly talking about the TV series and bringing up the biggest points I’d like to discuss from what I saw. Continue reading
I’ve had an interpretation of the Macross F love triangle sent me today by Lalo Martins (site) and while I don’t agree with it I do find it interesting to see other view points that are not complete shipping propaganda. After it is over I will give my take on this as we decided that would work best for this. Normally I don’t do this but it’s rare to see a Sheryl x Ranka ending interpretation that isn’t just yuri fantasizing. Also keep in mind we have two fundamentally different view points on this as I view there being only one correct interpretation that is the truth while Lalo views it as there can be no complete truth because it is a work of fiction. Read on to see his thoughts.
I write a lot on Macross Frontier and while I write mostly for either fun or to clarify misunderstood or hidden elements of Macross today I feel what I am writing about is something more necessary. Today I am looking more in-depth at Alto and through this explaining what is at the core of Macross F. The reason this is important is because I no longer trust the integrity of the franchise when it comes to this topic. I want to record this in case they do change history even more than what they did with the Macross Frontier movies. Not only that but people so often get wrong the nature of the relationship of Alto between Ranka and Sheryl I want to set the record straight.
Macross Frontier discussion to me had settled for better or for worse but this crazy fandom just keeps giving me reasons to come back. I see no end to new commentary or unique opinions about Macross F and this has in turn spawned a new desire to discuss more topics as well. As such I am going to make (hopefully) a small series of posts on the different topics I want to go over. This does assume you’ve read some of my previous posts on Macross or have a good knowledge of what I have discussed in them already. Continue reading
So you know the deal more figures and more pictures (and less of my money). This will likely be the last blog post I make on figures for a long time. I can’t see me doing another order until well into 2013. If I do it likely won’t have Macross F stuff because I because have everything I really want right now. Continue reading
Today marks the one year anniversary of when I watched Sayonara no Tsubasa for the first time. It’s strange how little time has passed but it feels like a lifetime ago. Being the one year anniversary I wanted to take this opportunity to discuss some things I’d otherwise not have a reason to write about. A lot of it is going to be personal to me, more so than I usually go into on my blog. Continue reading
Continuing on from my best moments in anime post here are my best moments for Ranka Lee and in Macross Frontier in general. Since this is dealing with a single anime there are not as many scene’s to consider from and the list should be less random although my number one Ranka moment will probably surprise you. Like before I weighted some of these moments on personal feelings but I feel this time I am more justifiable and thus able to rank these.
The website of the new Macross FB 7 movie has gone live today (http://www.macross30.com/fb7/) and details of the new movie are surfacing and as a Ranka fan I am excited and hopeful of this new movie…a little. You can read the details of the movie at Anime News Network (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/interest/2012-08-08/macross-fb-7-hybrid-rock-anime-project-outlined) but the part I am of course most interested in is the news Ranka will have some kind of a role in the upcoming film. I also find the movie concept rather interesting and a good way to give us more of what we love without pandering TOO much (admit it though it is a pander). Continue reading
Today I want to discuss something that has been on my mind lately, anime which get multiple universes created out of them. This is actually very rare, there are only a few who get true multiple universes with the intent from the start to create something completely different from the first incarnation of the anime if you don’t count manga. What I will be focusing on today is Macross Frontier since it is the series I understand and care about the most of the handful. Continue reading
With the release of the Macross super dimensional seminar I’ve started thinking about the next Macross series and what we should hope for or expect. So far there is no information that I know of about the next Macross at the time of this writing but I do think I can guess a few things just off of what this seminar program is giving us. Continue reading
