I wanted to start watching SDF Macross, but I'm unsure about it. I think it's because its kinda different from what I normally watch. I watched about half the first episode so far.
What are your top 5 reasons why I should watch SDF Macross?

>>
Because it's good.

Fuck you, it's not our job to convince you to watch things. If you don't like it just stop.
>>
1. Fuck you I'm not your rec guy but macross is cool so I'll humor you. But I'm still saging.

2. Space jet battles

3. Daedalus attack

4. Cute aliens doing cute protoculture things

5. Skull leader
>>
Because of this: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B3lt8EhTx8o
But really, it's good. Extremely good.

Even if this is actually from the movie

Beautiful kitano circus
Beautiful valkeryes (wait few episodes)
Pineapple
Interracial sex
fever dream episode

But would KYUN KYUN KYUN KYUN even it out again.
I'm so sick of minmay at this point. the old lady is a way better girl than she.
>>
>>101169311
the Daedalus attack is one of the most overpowered, absurd, awesome things I've ever seen in anime, not considering TTGL
>>
>>101169511
Then keep watching.
Trust me.

Just wait until the timeskip. Then you can wash away your hatred with DYRL.

Because it's actually good and one of the rare examples of a love triangle that's well-written and not contrived?

Plus, there's cool battles. Obligatory.

>>101169696
This movie is so beautiful that I almost cried.

I think that Macross starts off a bit awkward, but it gets really fucking good once you get a bit of the way into it. Great world/setting development, great plot, things get rolling really well.

>>101170116
Fuck, I wanna watch it again now. I won't lie, the end always gets me.

I can't believe that it's been 3 decades, and nothing has topped it in terms of mecha action. It's an amazing spectacle, and unlike some other high-budget things of the era, it actually has a good story.

For me the zentradi main fleet just arrived and the original small fleet has decided to fight with the macross.
>>
>>101171493
Ahhh, I should have replied to the other anon.

As other's have said, Macross has a pretty great ending that makes it all worth it.
>>
>>101171572
I'm so nervous about it. What do I watch after DYRL? Zero? 7? Fonteir? Macross Plus again?
>>
>>101171674
Production order. Plus is so good that you might as well watch it again.
>>
>>101171674
7 you will either love or hate.
I personally loved it.
>>
>>101171756
I dunno if I want to see them all though. Are they all great?
>>
>>101171674
Go with broadcast order: DYRL, Plus, 7, Zero, Frontier, AKB0048 (Fucking Kawamori! Where's the 30th anniversary Macross show!?)
>>
>>101171808
You just gotta listen to his song.
>>
>>101171813
They are. Macross is a great saga.
>>
>>101171674
Macross II Lovers again is pretty terrible and isn't part of the Macross canon so watch at your own risk.
>>
>>101171813
I personally love all of Macross except for II which is okay, but it's not accepted my Kawamori since none of the original staff worked on it.
>>
>>101171674
Don't even bother watching Macross II. It has no redeeming factors, outside of some nice animation here and there.
>>
>>101171813
The only one I didn't really like is Zero and II.
The rest of them are among my favorites of all time.

Macross II Lovers Again was released after DYRL under the same name, but none of the same staff. Some of it looks like Macross, but it never really feels right and for many it just doesn't work because of this.

SDF Macross is a masterpiece
>>
>>101172217
I'd only watch 7 for her.

Yeah, starting with Macross Plus was a great idea, let me know that SDF was quality even though it's pretty old and looks old too.

>>101172152
I remember the horror when the "Macross arc" ended and suddently everything changed. Characters, animations, colors, design, EVERYTHING. I was so mindfucked holy shit. Only years and years later I discovered the truth, it was also difficult as fuck to pinpoint what anime was Macross because all I remembered was "robotsomething" and it didn't fucking help at all to search for "mecha robots" fuck
>>
>>101172093
shh... let me dream.

>>101172152
my dad bought Macross episode 1 on a vhs home from Japan and showed it to me.

I fell in love but never got more for almost 6 years when I saw Robotech on Toonami.

Such suffering. I still find it hilarious that my dad will watch anime like Macross or Hokuto no Ken but Gundam is too weird.

>>101172086
It's okay; it's just not Macross. I enjoyed the music, too. All that synthy 80's pop goodness done by Shiro Sagisu of Eva and Bleach fame.

Minmay was a young girl who made one or two questionable choices. Meanwhile Hikaru is an asshole to Misa throughout the show and nobody mentions his deeds.

AKB0048 was surprisingly good. Pitty it'll probably never get finished

AKB0048 is pretty good right up until the ending, but I don't think that counts because it was practically a Macross.

I'll always have a special place for Robotech, since it was effectively my gateway anime (as bad as that is). Granted, I've sinced watched Macross blah blah blah, but I don't think you can deny that Robotech was probably a gateway of sorts for a lot of people.

As far as gateway anime go, it could definitely be worse.

SDF Macross is my all-time favorite so while on one hand I'm annoyed at how localization went, at the same time I'm happy that people got to experience a kind of version of it for the first third of whatever Robotech was.

But mostly, that Robotech video game was awesome. I got it as a present before I even knew about the franchise and it definitely made me interested.

>>101174109
>I'm happy that people got to experience a kind of version of it for the first third of whatever Robotech was

But is that worth dooming the series with a retarded legal snarl, so those same people are unable to experience anything beyond the original and Plus?
>>
>>101174109
When I was growing up, I only ever liked the 'Macross Arc' of Robotech. Man was my mind fucked later on when I researched what was going on there.

How did anyone think that was a good idea?

But I'm still glad I got to watch that bastardised piece of shit as my first 'anime'.
>>
>>101174160
you'd be surprised on how many people wouldn't watch stuff like Eva or Macross because there are mechas, or because they think they are "old" and so, shitty.
>>
>>101173912

Yes, I know it was a good introduction, but why do people still hold a place in their heart for Robotech? Why do some people still think Robotech is a superior edit of Macross?

>>101174334
Ah well, I don't think it is superior, but I can remember racing home to see Rick and Lisa. Fuck, it was so cool at the time. Lisa was my waifu before I knew what anime, or a waifu, were.

I know if I never loved it as much, I would've never gotten into anime later on in life. It was looking it up years later and discovering how broken it was that brought me across. Pure nostalgia love for it.
>>
>>101174516
I don't remember the name of the first anime I watched, but I clearly remember that it was a mecha anime with some faggots fighting aliens, and at the end the alien queen dropped a drill-nuke aimed to the center of the Earth. It made me fall in love with mechas, and that love grew even more after I watched Macross.

Hating mechs should be classified as a mental disorder or something.

Licencing. In the States a series had to be a certain length in order to be picked up to air. Macross wasn't long enough so Robotech was Harmony Gold's way of mashing 3 shows together to sell to a network.

Macross is the first season of Robotech. Really though its not hard to google this.

>>
>>101175851
I wish they'd tell us what happened...
>>
>>101176285
It doesn't need one. (Neither did Yamato, that needs some fucking BDs for the TV series already).

Yamato 2199 was surprisingly good considering how liberal the remake was.
>>
>>101176246
>7 years ago
Only 6. It started airing in spring 2008.
>>
>>101176285
Seeing that Gundam the Origins is happening, I wouldn't be surprised if SDF Macross gets remade.
>>
>>101176315

I think one of the games on the Dreamcast elaborated on what happened.
>>
>>101176285
Frontier is probably the closest you're going to get, Kawamori is too busy making his other side projects that are totally not Macross no really honest.
>>
>>101176458
The Origin isn't a remake though.
>>
>>101176548
It kinda is though isn't it? The manga follows the original pretty well, but it changes some plot points.

I am assuming of course that they're reanimating it as well.
>>
>>101176740
Well yeah, I'm just being autistic.
>>
>>101176548
It's a retelling of the same story. It just makes a little more sense than the old one.

I don't have it on me at the moment, there's a map showing/comparing the journey that the White Base takes in the original 0079 and in The Origin. In one, it lands in California, travels across the pacific and northern China to Odessa, then up to Dublin and down to Jaburo. In The Origin, it lands in California and travels south.

I wouldn't want the remake to be quite as liberal as 2199, but I do want fancy new animation with mass dammit, not those plastic CGI battleships that get knocked around like leaves in the wind and removing some of the dumber aspects of the original.

If they did it like did a retelling like with Gundam the Origins and 0079, I'd be fine with it.
