  1. Latest ep is up - we're discussing the recent Ultimate Macross Poll. http://www.decultureshock.com/speakerpodcast-ep-127-ultimate-macross-poll/
  2. I need to fix some of the line formatting later, but for now, heres my write up. http://www.decultureshock.com/nhks-ultimate-macross-poll/
  3. 1:6 scale. Its been doing the rounds at events such as Kawamori’s The Henkei, the Skytree Blue Moon Showcase and Comiket since 2015 or so.
  4. Going through the results with a fine tooth comb today. Will hopefully have a writeup done by tonight.
  5. She came in at No.11 in the final results.
  6. In the leadup to tonight’s Ultimate Macross Poll broadcast, results 50-26 have been released for each category. Here’s a quick translation of the mecha results so far. Keep in mind that the same model of mecha has multiple entries for tv/ova/movies. There are also a few entries that were tied. Will have the full results posted once they are available. https://www.nhk.or.jp/anime/macross/ranking/?cat=songs
  7. While the latest episode is mainly concerned with Alita Battle Angel, we do cover Macross Historia too. http://www.decultureshock.com/speakerpodcast-ep-126-alita-battle-angel/
  8. Just a quick heads up for anyone who is interested. Last night, Kazutaka Miyatake mentioned that an upcoming issue of Model Graphix magazine would feature a special on Studio Nue. It doesn’t appear to be listed for sale anywhere yet but more info will hopefully drop soon.
  9. No Macross talk this episode, but here it is just in case anyone is interested. http://www.decultureshock.com/speakerpodcast-ep-125-city-hunter-shinjuku-private-eyes/
  10. It’s been his official policy on the franchise as a whole for 21 years now, meaning that it predates even Zero. And this is only one translated published account. I suspect it dates back even further but people didn’t ask, given that canon is not something the Japanese tend to put as high a value on as the West when it comes to fiction (a trend that dates back to the late 70’s). TLDL: everything is fictional meaning that it can exist within and outside of concepts of canon simultaneously, allowing Kawamori maximum creative freedom. Knowing how he works, I suspect that he came up with this idea to keep himself motivated and creative and may well not have returned to Macross without it In a way it isn’t dissimilar to the stance Cameron has adopted with regards to the next 4 Avatar films that are currently in various stages of planning and production http://www.decultureshock.com/shoji-kawamori-on-what-is-and-what-is-not-canon/
  11. The SpeakerPODcast Crew is watching Macross Historia tonight an-... OMG THOSE HANDS! :-D
  12. Did a little digging into the SDF-018. If anyone else has any information that they've come across over the years, I'd love to hear it. http://www.decultureshock.com/the-vf-4-and-the-curious-case-of-the-sdf-018/
  13. Promotional video for Shoji Kawamori Expo. (Originally debuted at Anime Japan last weekend).
  14. No problem. That Ragna piece was actually really detailed. All the main Delta characters were represented except for (as Save pointed out to me) Q-lulu. There was one other entry I didn’t get photos of but posted a movie of it here ↓
