Macross Frontier has turned out to be more than what I was expecting so far (I am only on episode 3 that I will watch tonight). The love triangle seems to already be forming and the additional scenes in episode 1 of the TV version as aposed to the Protoculture edition do kind of give more even time between the two lead girls.

I love the new enemy. More close to reality then the enemy that was in Macross 7 (although I loved that series). I wonder how Alto is going to deal with the situation. I hope he doesn't become wimpy. If Basara is more manly than the new lead that would be saying something. But then again not everyone can be Hikaru Ichijou and go from being a snot nosed cocky kid to a Military and war hardened adult over night.

I'm looking forward to following this series in it's entirety.

Must must watch... love... robotech...

Man I love robotech, watched it when I was a kid + used to play all the games. Was hoping for a little familiar music in this series. although the sound is really good, still want to hear the original theme. Still... going to love every minute of this.

Just to give you a heads up and a little History, This series is the newest franchise in the Japanese Anime series Macross.

Footage from the original TV series of Super Dimentional Fortress Macross was used to create an edited dub with new music by Ulpio Minucci in the first third of Robotech that was the Macross Saga. This show on the other hand follows the continuity established from Macross TV to Do You Remember Love to Macross Plus (notice Eden is in the summary at the beginning of episodes) to Macross 7 with I imagine Macross Zero placed as the Origin of the series.

The differences are quite subtle, but a major one is


If you want more of your 'original theme' unfortunately no more work from Ulpio Minnucci has been done as sadly he passed away in 2007. However the original uncut version of Super Dimensional Fortress Macross TV is available on DVD in Region 1 from Animeigo (out of print) and a rerelease with a new dub by ADV Films (dub not really recommended compared to the Robotech cast personally but that's a discussion for another thread).

I have never watched any other series of the Macross saga but this series is the one I am looking forward the most this season.

my top anime this season... have been anticipating it since it was announced.. and watching the deculture edition eps confirmed it for me that this could not be missed, although i admit the animation feels like it dropped a tiny bit in eps 3.. hopefully it'll pick back up again
