What's your favorite Paleolithic megafauna?

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:06 PM)

Together with the Rhino G1 sets, probably the most expensive DVDs I ever bought

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 10:01 PM)

I've still got the age-old Rhino sets

@  Telly : (14 October 2019 - 09:09 PM)

i didnt find that at any of the ones around here, so i had to settle for seasons 1 and 2 of duckman for $3

@  Steevy Maximus : (14 October 2019 - 07:45 PM)

Heck, I got the season 2/3 set for $3 (?) from a Dollar General discount bin :p

@  TM2-Megatron : (14 October 2019 - 07:29 PM)

The series is pretty cheap on DVD, too, which at least will work internet or no. The complete series set seems to be OOP, but there's a Season 1 set as well as a combined 2 & 3 set.

He dubbed the peoples that saw him as bad news cannibals and savages before enslaving and wiping them out too.

@  wonko the sane? : (14 October 2019 - 01:40 PM)

And if they had been unfriendly: he would have simply slaughtered them with diseases they couldn't fight, and technology they couldn't match until they as a people did not exist. There's something about european backgrounds that drive us to exploit.

@  Rycochet : (14 October 2019 - 11:02 AM)

He described the peoples he encountered as some of the most friendly and giving in the world, so naturally, he ate all their food, enslaved them and put them to work looking for gold that did not exist, until they as a people did not exist.

Well, it's just started recently in Japan, and I've seen Subs up to ep 3.

I really like the main character for some reason, he's just kinda, gel-ing.
Ranka is wonderful, and Sheryl is pretty bitchy.
Plus, Aya Hirano and Kaori Fukuhara are voicing some Bridge Operators, which really satisfies the Lucky Star fan in me.

So anybody else want to share their thoughts?

PM me if you're bored!

Alto's irritance of being called princess reminds of Kamille Bidan's peeve.

Sheryl Nome is the GARest diva I've ever seen. Alto used her own words to justify joining SMS. Her lastname being Nome could mean she's a decendant of Mao Nome of Macross Zero.

Ranka is cute, you just have a feeling she's Anima Spiritia singer given the Vajra reacts to her.

Mikhail is a sniper playboy version of Max Jenius.

As for the enemy the Vajra certainly related to the Protoculture with the spiral makings.

Tech wise it is reminicent of the birdman doomday wewapon of Macross Zero.

I'm expecting Meltrandi Red Queadluun-Rau Klein Klan for epic lulz in ep 4.



Heh she's supposed to be Millia's version in Macross Frontier. In fact she's shown twice in the Op.

Mikhail can't hit her as he would like but he has fun teasing her.

I know the japanese are into effeminate girly men, but Alto is a little ridiculous. Still, the production values are the best i've ever seen in a tv series, and the CG is flawless. Definitely a lot more enjoyable than 7 and Zero.

Word of advise see the Director's cut Deculture version first of episode one.

It's much more better than the broadcasted one.

Though I'm sure once the DVD hits they'll combine the scenes.

Yes , but you'll have to watch Broadcast version of Ep 1 as well or else Sheryl's bitchiness will come seemingly out of nowhere in ep2.

I have heard that the japanese DVD will include a fused ep 1 that combines the Deculture version with broadcast ep 1.

Macross Frontier is amazing, some of the best animation I've ever seen in a TV show. The CG isn't 100% perfect, but it's maybe the closest I've ever seen it get to meshing completely with the 2d animation. And, best of all, the plot and characters are really fun so far, too. It's going to be interesting to see how the new enemies tie into the Macross backstory.

Not just DVD - they've announced that on Blu-Ray, too. And, given how nice this show looks on TV, it's probably going to be amazing in high definition. Just... Maybe not amazing enough to pay Japanese BR prices for a single episode.

The same reason nothing Macross has made it over in the last few years, aside from the original series - nobody is willing to deal with the absolute mess the rights to the franchise are, over here.

haven't seen any episode. BUT from wiki, everything looks great

Macross wiki

I do have a few questions:

Macross 7 was set on 2045, and Macross Frontier is set on 2059. Macross 7 has the 37th colonial fleet while Macross Frontier has the 25th colonial fleet. So my question is, why did the 37th came before the 25th???? shouldn't that be the other way around??? Did they ever explain what happened to the Macross 7 fleet??? I know Battle 7 was destroyed as well as City 7 (I think) but they still have some escort ships, did they just turned around and headed back to Earth???

What is the main plot of Macross Frontier???

On a different note: did they ever explain what happened to the SDF-2??? Why is everyone going to the center of the universe??? what's the big deal there???

You gotta rememebr, all of the colonial fleets launched within a relatively close period of time, but they all had diffrent destinations. Macross 7 and the Frontier Fleets are both out in deep space at the same time, but will reach their destinations at diffrent times.

On a side note of niftyness, I love all the little allusions to the previous shows.
Sherryl "Listen to my song!"
The stunt team doing the same manuvers as Isamu
The cola machines
Alto pretty much doing the same big moment as Hikaru
The initial diaspra map shows the early colonization of Eden, etc.

So far all I have seen is the Deculture version, so I take it there are diffirent scenes in the normal broadcast one not in the Deculture? Oy..more web searching ahead.
Clearing out some old TFs and Mugenbine in my BST Thread. You know you want some of these.

The battle lines are drawn as the Love Triangle begins!

San Francisco

Alto x Sheryl date

Giant Zentrandi, giant space cow-hippo hybrids, giant panties and Mikhail being discrete as a mouse around a giant Klein Klan.

Not to mention Ranka pulling a Macross 7 Encore.

Damn this series, and damn Klan Klein. A combination of a friend bugging me on Facebook and Redwolf's signature made me check out this Macross Frontier, and I quite enjoyed it. Little did I know the dark corners it would take me by piquing my Macross interest up several notches. Now I'm downloading a giga torrent to actually watch the entirety of Macross since I haven't even seen all of its Robotech version, and Macross 7.

Today I'm looking up info on the VF-25 designs when I end up on Macross World, see the sweet 1/60 YF-19 design I'd missed out on seeing and that they're making new 1/60 VF-1 toys with 'perfect transformation' which would be a great scale for hanging out with transformers. Suddenly this went from brief flirtation of interest into expensive prospects and many hours of watching to be had.

Though the new 1/60 VF-1S would be a great size to replace the classics Jetfire I'm selling my brother (albeit a replacement many times more expensive than the replaced)... Just have to work on my painting skills between now and then...

But in the current, digitized world, trivial information is accumulating every second, preserved in all its triteness. Never fading, always accessible. Rumors about petty issues, misinterpretations, slander... All this junk data preserved in an unfiltered state, growing at an alarming rate. It will only slow down social progress, reduce the rate of evolution. You seem to think that our plan is one of censorship. What we propose to do is not to control content, but to create context.

Next year sometime I bet. If ever. Or i you want it in straight-up Japanese I guess its doable during this year if you want to pay an outrageous sum.

What is the main plot of Macross Frontier???

Giant space bugs known as "Vajra" are attacking the 25th colonial fleet Macross Frontier. The government is hushing it up and soliciting the millitary supplement company SMS to fight them since they have superior equipment. During all this we have a love triangle between a galactic pop-diva, a kabuki performer turned pilot-in-training and a waitress with singer dreams.

It all ties up in different ways. Trust me.

On a different note: did they ever explain what happened to the SDF-2???

No. Still lost. But it whas going to the center of the galaxy. As in the place the Frontier is going and the origin of the Protoculture.

If we'll ever get answers, this series is a good bet. It IS the 25th anniversary after all.

Why is everyone going to the center of the universe??? what's the big deal there???

Center of the galaxy. See ^

It wasn't cut from the broadcasted version.

Macross Frontier is an interesting place. A mix of San Francisco and Shibuya.

Also those other biospheres being homes of full sized Zentrandi that chose not to micronized.

You can see Sheryl really have fun there in episode 5.
