Thinking about getting into this show. Just want to know the general opinion of this show of whether or not it's worth it.
So you want spoilers?
Did you like the previous ones (SDF in particular)? Alternative: What do you think about AKB0048?
If yes, watch for sure.
If no, eh you probably won't like it although there is a chance because it is very much a "modern" take on Macross.
If you didn't watch the others, do that first. Production order, yes even the movie I promise it's worth it.
I quickly looked it up and saw a 90s anime? is that related? Not sure how this series is ordered or anything.
prefer none but if it cant be helped just mark it as spoiler
In production order:
Do You Remember Love
Macross 7 Encore
Macross 7 Dynamite
Macross Frontier Movies
The Macross Plus Movie is in there somewhere, but I forget where. But those are all the series, so I recommend you watch all of them before Frontier. At the very least, do SDF and then 7.
SDF Macross was made in the early 80's, man. There's a whole franchise.
Anyways, Frontier makes for a pretty good Babby's First Macross, though it is chock-full of references, as well. It can be watched first or last - your pick. It's probably the most similar in feel to SDF Macross.
Jesus fuck, did not realize there was soooo much. Unless those are movies but still. Might just throw it onto the back log. Still have a bunch of other shows to get through, I'll screencap this to remember for later. Thanks
I started with that, some of the episodes weren't great but overall a solid series with movies that are even better.
Sheryl is best girl. That's all you need to know.
Well a bunch of those are OVAs. Anyways, I recommend you do watch Macross since it's a classic, and it's a very good franchise.
DYRL is a movie retelling of SDF, II isn't even canon. Plus is 4 OVAs, encore and dynamite are just additions for 7, and frontier movies are retellings.
Just watch Frontier to see if you like Macross as a concept first. That way, you'll know whether or not to bother with the rest of the franchise.
FWIW, I loved the shit out of it, and Macross pretty much became my single favorite anime franchise. New Macross TV series when, Kawamori?
>Nobunaga the Fool
Fuck you, that's not Macross. Go make more Macross.
Alright, I hear where you're coming from. I'll check it out.
Not every series can get milked as often as Gundam.
Ranka a shit
Sheryl a slut
Alto best girl
I like Nobunaga the Fool, seems interesting enough to me. For the past couple weeks I've been on a huge Mecha binge and I'm trying to find the best mecha animes to watch.
Why does the best girls always win in Macross?
Macross II is worthless, don't bother.
Macross Plus/7 Encore/7 Dynamite/Zero are short OVA things. The bulk is SDF/7/Frontier. DYRL is like the Nanoha movie as in it's a flashy retelling that's canonically some kind of in-universe movie based on the events of season 1. 10/10 masterpiece, prettiest Chinese cartoon ever created.
It's my favorite anime franchise, so I hope you enjoy.
I'll just leave this here.
What are you talking about? Alto-hime is a MANLY MAN.
>It's my favorite anime franchise, so I hope you enjoy.
DAT SHIT TASTE
Sheryl has a MANLIER face than him though.
Doesn't help Ranka looks like a dog as well.
You wanna go? Let's go. Right here, right now.
I'm warning you, I grew up in the harsh wastes of the Jersey shore. You can't handle what I've got.
You can watch Frontier and enjoy every minute of it without having seen any Macross show previously.
The animation in the TV series hasn't aged as well as one might hope, but it's still damn good. The movies are spectacular.
>You can watch Frontier and enjoy every minute of it without having seen any Macross show previously.
>The animation in the TV series hasn't aged as well as one might hope, but it's still damn good.
The mechs still look fine, though.
>that final battle
Feels so good, every time. Nyan Nyan Service Medley is a monument of Jpop.
Ranka is super cute.
>The mechs still look fine, though.
Yeah..no, it looks pretty garbage like most of Sarelight's shows.
Why would you watch this average show when you can watch the much better SDF Macross?
>Macross SEED edition
CG is a fact of life and modern mecha. You'll have to deal with it one day, anon.
Because SDF has not aged well at all and neither has DYRL. Frontier is still shit though but it's easier to get into.
I think that like most mecha anime, the perceived quality of the cgi is directly correlated to the speed of the mecha that is moving. Thankfully, they spend a lot of time zooming around.
I watched SDF and DYRL when Frontied started airing and loved them. They're still awesome.
SDF is charming in its rampant QUALITY. DYRL's animation is still pretty great. It just doesn't have the charm that SDF has.
Frontier was my first introduction to the franchise--I know, I'm a pleb--and thereafter I trucked through the entire franchise of the course of a few months. SDF, DYRL, and Zero were high points for me. I suppose 7 was all right if the constant yells of "FIRE BOMBER" don't annoy you too much.
>Zero were high points for me
It's a fun show. Sheryl is love. Watch the films afterward. SKY END
Alright, it seems to be a mecha show with Jpop in it? Main girl famous for music or something?
I figured that you'd be a stronger advocate of Movie End.
It's almost as if Jpop idols were a recurring theme in Macross!
>It's almost as if Jpop idols were a recurring theme in Macross!
Fire Bomber > everything
Well the series is SKY END. If he's gonna watch the series, he should get ready for that. But seriously, the film is the real end. Sheryl outright wins and Michael lives.
As with every Macross, well not always Jpop; M7 was J-rock, but you get the point: singing and mecha=Macross. It's culture, yo!
Oh, it's close enough. I thought you were gonna gripe that Sara isn't an idol but just a backwater native bumpkin mysticshamanwhateverthefuck.
Is Fire Bomber better than Best Girl?
FRONTIER CANCER SHIT. MACROSS WAS NEVER SUPPOSED TO BE ABOUT SHITTY J-POP AND LOVE TRIANGLES.
That picture. What the fuck am I looking at?
>accurate depiction of your average Plusfag with shitty memory
Best Macross girl from an OVA that you're nowhere close to watching.
>Sheryl outright wins
Plus never had an ending.
I really need to get around to the movies. Have them on my backlog, probably could have watched them both along with Plus with the amount of time I spent on /a/ today.
>holding on to all these delusions.
Not even in 12,000 years will Ranka win the Man cross Front tear
Why did he told her here >>100205676 instead of stringing her along to this >>100205915?
That scene was pretty one sided.
It was comfort hug because they're about to go into the final battle
Ranka confessed before the hug. Alto told her to wait for the answer.
Well, looks like she got it!
When will Maaya Sakamoto start making OPs for shows that aren't shit again?
Cute show, pretty short. If your not down with the music then it's a no go, but otherwise twas pretty good.
I loved Macross and Macross Frontier. Macross 7 looked really retarded so I didn't watch it.
Well she got it.
He is right,i did it.
Who klan here?
My god, I don't think I"ve ever seen such shit taste before
Do you even kyun kyun?
The show is ok , I wish all side characters died , and sheryl and alto alone . Oh well
He's right though. All you'll miss are irrelevant moments of fanservice.
Frontier > Frontier movies > Plus > DYRL >>>>> Zero in terms of what I've seen. Frontier is pretty much better than anything Kawamori has done since then. It's like he keeps trying to remake Frontier/Aquarion but ends up fucking it up somehow. I started with Frontier and then moved on to others, you'll only miss a couple nods to older series that wont make or break anything. And yes Sheryl the best.
SDF has aged fine.
>thinking Ranka is best girl
