Why was Macross so much batter than Gundam 0079?
Its like comparing Masterpiece to some cheap badly directed and written shit.
Best mecha, best characters, best fights. Best and most popular mecha anime movie in Japan. Macross Zero still the best Mecha OAV ever.
What went wrong? How shit like Gundam became ever present and rehashed shit, while Macross a 2nd rate mecha?
>Best mecha, best characters, best fights. Best and most popular mecha anime movie in Japan. Macross Zero still the best Mecha OAV ever.
Not only do you have general shit taste, you don't even have taste in Macross.
Macross Zero is the worst Macross OVA.
Actually no, I'm wrong I forgot about some of them.
It's still not very good though.
God, Macross would be so great if they just made full TV anime prequel to SDFM about UN and Anti-UN fighting.
Story-wise and music-wise, sure. But it still has worth for plane-porn. Not just for the VF-0 on SV-51 action, but it's one of the only places where you'll actually find jet-on-jet action. Enjoy your Tomcat (RIP in pieces) vs Fulcrum action while you can.
>hating on 0079
Thank fuck people realized how shitty it was and let it die, now if only they can figure the same thing for Kawamori himself.
Worst Gundam ever? Shit animation, shit direction, horrible plot and fillers.
Was so bad it was cut short.
Frontier was bigger success than any Gundam TV show since Destiny
Yet it still does everything better than SDF.
>not liking Macross
What you got against fun and hijinks and Jpop, bro?
And the occasional drama.
What do you guys think of Macross 7?
Personally I loved it.
I am pretty sure you did not even watch it if you state shit like that. Even mecha fights were better in Macross. 0079 bombed and got only somewhat fixed later in movie recaps.
It was fun. Not my favorite, but enjoyable nonetheless. The 7 side materials are all great, though. From Fleet of the Strongest Women to that one not-MTV special where they made Ray white to Best Girl: The OVA to Dynamite 7 - they were all really good and arguably better than 7 itself. Also, Angel Voice best Macross song.
Because everything about it is done in the worst possible way and even the fights can save it because every single one is boring as fuck.
>Even mecha fights were better in Macross
Doan's Island manages to make a more interesting and fun to watch fight than anything in Macross, Gundam's end might have been rushed but Macross just went on 10 episodes longer than it should have.
> best fights
Are you for real? Should I post Knifefight.gif?
Easily the best anime I've ever watched.
Do it faggot
Do what? I'm not trying to say 0079 had incredible animation or anything, but no matter how rushed A Baoa Qu was it still shits all over anything Macross ever did as far as making an engaging fight scene is concerned. I really want to like Macross, but I just can't get over how awful everything is and how all the problems I have with it somehow leak into every series.
>What went wrong?
Every single Macross sequel sucked hard. Every single one.
Gundam = Star Wars
Macross = Star Trek
SDF was a fun show but it was a fucking mess, and honestly I thought it was visually really kind of awful, at least compared to some of its contemporaries.
Don't get me wrong, I love it, but I wouldn't even say it's equal to 0079, let alone better.
TV series was good, Liked the movies, but it got really weird with Dynamite 7.
I'll only grant you this only if you mean "every Macross sequel that occurred before Macross Plus".
slight amendment: every sequel that occurred after Flashback 2012 and before Macross Plus.
This, I loved it but jesus christ it just got BAD at some parts
>The show literally becoming a fucking slideshow during the episodes when they were trapped on the Zendrati ship (Max being fucking amazing kinda made up for that though)
>Hikaru being denser than a fucking black hole
>GOOGLY EYES EVERYWHERE
LISTEN TO MY SONG!
Planet Dance is overrated and overplayed, and the only redeeming feature is the strongest women OVA.
It's an early 80's mecha TV series. Pretty much every series tended to look REALLY cheaply made back then.
If you want good animation, then watch the movie. A shame the plot sucks.
>better than Gundam
I don't think you know what 'better' means.
I did, I liked DYRL a lot too
