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.
>>
>>100202127
I quickly looked it up and saw a 90s anime? is that related? Not sure how this series is ordered or anything.
>>100202120
prefer none but if it cant be helped just mark it as spoiler
>>
>>100202287
In production order:
SDF-Macross
Do You Remember Love
Macross II
Macross Plus
Macross 7
Macross 7 Encore
Macross 7 Dynamite
Macross Zero
Macross Frontier
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.
>>
>>100202287
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.
>>
>>100202685
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.
>>
>>100202685
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.
>>
>>100202685
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.
>>
>>100202766
Alright, I hear where you're coming from. I'll check it out.
>>
>>100202816
Not every series can get milked as often as Gundam.
>>
Ranka a shit
Sheryl a slut
Alto best girl
>>
>>100202816
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?
>>
>>100202685
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.

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.

The mechs still look fine, though.

Feels so good, every time. Nyan Nyan Service Medley is a monument of Jpop.

Ranka is super cute.

>>100204231

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?

CG is a fact of life and modern mecha. You'll have to deal with it one day, anon.
>>
>>100204330
Because SDF has not aged well at all and neither has DYRL. Frontier is still shit though but it's easier to get into.
>>
>>100204304
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.
>>
>>100204442
I watched SDF and DYRL when Frontied started airing and loved them. They're still awesome.
>>
>>100204442
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.
>>

What?

>>100201976
It's a fun show. Sheryl is love. Watch the films afterward. SKY END
>>
>>100205218
Alright, it seems to be a mecha show with Jpop in it? Main girl famous for music or something?
>>
>>100205218
>SKY END
I figured that you'd be a stronger advocate of Movie End.

>>100205264
It's almost as if Jpop idols were a recurring theme in Macross!

Not always.

Fire Bomber > everything

>>100205305
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.

>>100205264
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!

I loved Macross and Macross Frontier. Macross 7 looked really retarded so I didn't watch it.

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.
