  1. Goddamn, Ernest Johnson was involved with the villains of VF-X2? Woah, where was this mentioned? Also, what source clarifies that Epsilon, not the Windermereans, was responsible for all the restoration work on the Sigur Barrentz? Blu-Ray liner notes?
  2. New Macross TV Series in 2018

    I wonder what innovation to the Macross class design lineage the next series could have. We've already got first generation Macrosses, Battles, quarter Macrosses, and two-thirds Macrosses. What's next? Multi-vector assault mode?

    How about Mylene's pet「グババ」?

    I thought "Gamlin" was the official romanized spelling of ガムリン. Different departments just not telling each other?
  5. Macross Δ (Delta) Movie Announced

    I know what story you're referring to, but I'm pretty sure the SDFN-series vessel's name is not "Macross Extra". It went unnamed, and in any case, that series takes names from U.N. Spacy flag officers, no?
  6. In Delta episode 5 we see a Megaroad fleet making contact with Windermere and a New Macross fleet making contact with Ragna. Was it the Megaroad or the New Macross that was identified by ancillary media?
  7. Super Macross Mecha Fun Time Discussion Thread!

    Can someone link me to the previous extensive discussion on the VF-31? I think it was previously mentioned somewhere in this thread I don't think the search bar on this site likes "VF-31".

    Am I to understand that the VF-4 Lightning III is named "three" because in and out of universe, the designers followed the name precursors of the P-38 Lightning and the F-35 Lightning II? Therefore, the Sv-262 Draken III follows the 35 Draken and.....some yet-undescribed fictitious Draken II? And in that case, is there a real-world name precursor for the VF-22 Sturmvogel II?
  9. Has any Macross story ever noted any difference between folding while in an atmosphere versus in outer space for a conventional spaceworthy vessel? I was wondering because most sci-fi franchises tend to reasonably establish as a general rule that shipboard FTL propulsion will only work in outer space.1 1. Contingent on the plot requirements, of course. I'm looking at you, Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home and you, Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

    A couple thoughts occur to me: does the VF-31 have any particular advantage in having completely internalized weapons in fighter mode, including the gun pod, compared to previous fighter models? Though by that factor, wouldn't the forward-swept wings of the VF-9, YF-19 / VF-19, YF-29, and Siegfried VF-31 be un-aerodynamic? And yet we have seen all of those models operate in atmosphere.
