With Frontier being the 25th anniversary, is is possible we'll see some links to Macross 7 and the fate of the Megaroad 01?
Yes, that's obviously the entire purpose of the show.
Possible, but unlikely, given their courses and the fact we haven't heard anything about them already.
Crappy MS paint job, but I labeled all the Major colony fleets that feature in the anime. Admitedly, due to the panning nature of the scene, Megaroad 01 quickly drops out of sight.
Opps, that blue "M.Galaxy" was supposed to be "M.Frontier" damn me.
Also, its worth noting that M.Frontier arcs "right"ward towards the Galactic core when it zooms in on it's course.
Macross 5 and 7 crosses paths at one point? I don't remember that.
Uhm? You watched Macross 7 right?
It was mentioned that the two fleets had very close ties together. Eventually Macross 5 found a nice planet and invited Macross 7 to come resupply, whereupon arrival they discovered that the M5 fleet had been utterly destroyed by the Varuta.
Megaroad 01 got sucked into a black hole.
Kawamori agreed, don't bother him about it.
Now that you mention yes, I do remember that.
I try to forget about Macross 7, I know lots of people like it, but far I I'm concerned it was crap. Nice soundtrack though, but good music does not a good show make.
I thought it was awesome, but I DO hope the music angle isn't as overblown in Frontier as it was in Seven.
Macross 7 was way too long, took forever to get to the point, had uninteresting fights, largely so-so animation, and a fucking annoying main character.
"oh hai, everyone's dying, I'm gonna sing."
And the plot was ass and full of retcon bullshit. The Zentradi were shocked by music because they had never seen (or heard) it before, it was culture shock, not because the music had magical powers. When they started strapping giant speakers to the fights in Macross 7, I basically gave up all hope for the show.
And don't get me started on the OAV. It had furries and space whales. SPACE WHALES.
DID SOMEONE SAY WHALES?!
YEAH! SOMEONE DEFINATELY SAID WHALES!
LISTEN TO MY SONG!
If you don't find space whales AWESOME, you're quite a faggot.
Because space whales are AWESOME.
I hope not.
They can be awesome, but not in the way Macross did them.
The OAV was how Macross 7 should have been. None of that garbage about Sound Energy, just Basara singing to SPACE WHALES.
Varauta? Isn't that where the Protodeviln came from?
Fucking LISTEN TO MY SONG. This is why Macross 7 was shit.
Soun energy was stupid. But, hey, mechas fighting aliens with SOUNDS BEAMS!
Macross 7 is silly, we know. Some people find it silly and fun, when others find it silly and boring.
Encore or Dynamite?
Well, they've already had at least one Fire Bomber song in Macross Frontier. But I doubt they'll actually mention anything relevant to Macross 7 at all.
Space Whales suck.
Hey asshole, they were wiped out by the Protodeviln.
Yup, Megaroad 13 fleet discovered the Varuta system an unleashed the Protodevlin, who promptly turned them all into mind controlled slaves.
Megaroad 13 landed on the planet the Protodevilin were sealed on, accidentally woke up Geppelnich and were then turned into the "Varauta".
Macross 7 did an absolutely terrible job of explaining this sequence of events.
So it's like G Gundam? I hate that show aswell
Moving on, fuck Macross Frontier and Macross 7, it's all about Macross Zero, amirite?
Hey Jackass, the Protodevlin CONTROL the Varuta.
So the Varuta in Frontier came from Megaroad 13 waking them up and the Protodevlin in M7 came from there?
Has asshole, prove it in Frontier or GTFO of my /a/.
I've never found a concrete answer to this question, but isn't the implication of Macross Zero that the Birdman is a Protodevlin?
What the fuck does Frontier have to do with the Protodevlin and the Varuta?
Are you mistaking the VAJRA for the VARUTA?!?
NOT THE SAME
The Varauta have nothing to do with Frontier at all. The bugs in Frontier are the Vajra.
The Varauta was the name used by the mind controlled humans who did all the grunt work for the Protodevilin. I don't really know where the name originated though.
I always forgot to watch those extras when I went through 7, so I missed some of them, including that one.
Also good god why didn't they just make Gunther/Geppelnitch female? Hell, he was voiced by You Inoue, so it seems ridiculous for it to be male.
YES THEY ARE JACKASS!!
VAruta = Mindcontrolled humans piloting Variable fighters stealing spiritua energy
Vajra = Insectiod Bioweapons with an as-yet-unknown motive.
HOW ARE THEY THE SAME?
You're either an idiot, a troll, or trying to be funny.
I'M ONLY 15!!
