  1. I got this one. Ahem. It is a characterization technique to establish Hikaru as the audience avatar or surrogate. Hikaru has been introduced to the audience as a highly skilled pilot of a killing machine. His courage in battle is contrasted with his shock and intimidation by Minmay's beauty. He drops the flashlight and clumsily steps on it which otherwise contrasts with his prowess as a pilot. Stepping on the flashlight was an accident we can all relate to which allows the audience to identify with Hikaru. Your question here may be evidence of a tiny flaw in the animation as Hikaru oddly
  2. The Ancient Astronaut theory can depend on your perspective. If you see yourself as a member of humanity with a direct lineage to a common ancestor then you did directly benefit from alien help as you have shared in these alien gifts. If you see yourself as a special creation and you feel no brotherhood with other races or cultures, then you might be more likely to suspect societies other than your own had outside alien help which your society never required.
  3. Is it fair to say Macross toys with the "Ancient Astronaut" theory? The Protoculture had seeded Earth but then later rediscovered humanity? So the Protoculture were ancient astronauts to their own creation in a sense? Is the "Ancient Astronaut" theory somewhat corrosive to the spirit of out-of-universe viewers as it implies humans needed help to accomplish feats like the pyramids? Or does the "Ancient Astronaut" theory flatter humanity as it implies we possess almost supernatural abilities?
  4. Only the good die young. He was a great guy. His Robotech journalism really gave me a lot of joy. Here are some of his Robotech podcasts: https://www.talkshoe.com/show/space-station-liberty Teleread articles: https://teleread.org/2020/10/14/r-i-p-chris-meadow-more-to-come-on-his-life/ https://teleread.org/2020/10/09/telereads-chris-meadows-seriously-injured-in-electric-bike-accident/
  5. Hi. I wrote some essays analyzing Macross. In the same way the Romans adapted Greek mythology into their own Roman mythology, I used Robotech and DYRL as filters and lenses to focus and concentrate the story elements of Macross. It is written from the perspective of pop culture or media analysis. It is something to read if you are bored at work. Thanks. https://superdimensionalanalysis.com/a-media-literacy-and-distilled-synthesis-for-every-incarnation-of-events-depicted-in-episodes-1-to-36/
  6. Hi. I assume two of my posts in the last month were deleted. The posts are missing. The threads went off topic. May I post my fan site in the homepage section or the review section? Thanks.
  7. The first two Bill and Ted films are most excellent. They embody a beautiful ethos about the human spirit. "Be excellent to each other. And party on dude." This is the golden rule of 'do unto others as you would have them do unto you.' The "party on" portion is akin to turning the other cheek, live and let live, forgive and forget, keep on truckin,' etc. Bill and Ted are holy fools or idiot savants. They are good natured and pure of heart. At it's most cathartic, rock and roll music captures this joy of living. All that said, Bill and Ted 3 is horrible. They missed the mark. The
  8. Thanks for sharing the announcement Perhaps I don't deserve my avatar but it recently occurred to me that Dana Sterling in Remix is like Marty McFly as she is trying to orchestrate her own conception and then return to her own timeline.
  9. Thanks a lot. I just found in Episode 11 where Bodolzaa refers to the reaction weapons. Minmay's birthday episode with the introduction of Max and Kakizake shows Kakizaki pointing out the area. DYRL? shows Minmay sort of eye-roll during her and Hikaru's date montage.
  10. Hi. In Episode 3 of SDF Macross Britai orders Exedore or his troops to fire on the ARMD's but not the SDF-1 because "that ship interests" him. What is the reason for this? Why does Britai and eventually Bodolzaa want a supervision army ship? Thanks.
  11. I am reading the translation of the Macross Chronicle on the web. Can anyone help me understand this sentence from the synopsis for Episode 9: Miss Macross? "Also, a little bit before that, director Yamaga Hiroyuki seems to have received Mr. Miyatake Kazutaka's "purchased with cake" depiction of the genga in the cut where Hikaru clutches the control column in the scene where he intercepts the missiles (pictured)." Is "purchased with cake" just a strange Japanese idiom or maxim? Does it just mean included in the price? I am just curious because I suspect when Hikaru clutches his control co
  12. Hello. There is a famous character and mecha appearance by episode chart for Episodes 1 to 36 from the Macross Chronicle. Could someone translate the key for the mecha? It uses a three letter key of N, S, and A for the veritechs. I am curious what the N, S, and A indicates. Thanks.
  13. Very cool. Was this information discovered and worked out by fans, referenced in a published book, or revealed in interviews with creative staff? Where do you feel these markings on the Destroids are most prominent? In the SDFM Episodes 1 to 36, in toys, or fairly equally represented throughout the franchise? I hope you are getting paid by the franchise. I am so impressed with your expertise and availability to answer questions. You deserve a throne and crown as King of Macross. :)
  14. Hi. Thanks for all your corrections. My Remix sales figures are unofficial. I got them from a fan's YouTube video. A podcaster and blogger at RT dot com with relationships with the creators of Remix feels Remix is not cancelled.
  15. Hello. Another long strange journey of Robotech has come to a premature termination. It seems like Robotech Remix has failed in the commercial market and has ended with Issue 4. It looks like Robotech Remix was cancelled. It seems retailers purchased less than 5000 copies of Issue 4 and it is unknown how many of those 5000 were actually purchased by customers. If Remix is ever resurrected, it would probably be a reboot and be numbered as Issue 1 to increase sales. I suspect the title would be The Return and Rehash of Robotech Remix as a Resurrected Reboot. Remix began in November of 2019. Issu
  16. I agree with JohnMc. While re-imagining and remixing the series is fun, without a masterful overarching vision, the basis and underpinnings of the series begin to fall apart. J. Switzer has recently observed by making Minmei and Lisa so assertive in their Titan incarnations, the contrast between the two is lost. This muddles and diminishes Rick's romantic tension between these two love interests. Originally, Minmei and Lisa were illuminated against the backdrop of the other. In 1982 the plot tension was generated by the dynamics between these character archetypes. As JohnMc observes,
  17. Spoiler Alert for Robotech Remix Issue 4 February 2020
  18. I also alluded to this topic back on 2/18/2020. Brian Wood wrote the first 8 issues of the last Robotech Titan series. He has a few accusations floating around google about his possible harassment of women. I believe there were even some quasi-articles written up prior to or just after Titan's Robotech comic book premiering indicating he was taking this Robotech opportunity to almost apologize to his accusers, right his past wrongs, or perhaps market himself to the latest fad of comic book plots. On another topic, I am sheepishly a fan of both the RT franchise and the Macross franchi
  19. Spoiler Alert for a backup story in Robotech Remix Issue 3 January 2020 framed as a MBS TV show titled Pop Star Sleepover.
