Macross 25th Anniversary and upcoming new TV series thread

Recommended Posts

Have i mentioned i want fan service in this new series ala or not as bad ala Ikki Tousen. :p :P :p

I keep remembering Sylvie's boob wobble in Macross II when they were trying to rescue Ishtar. :lol:

There have been plenty of fan service moments in all of Macross (M7 i will watch soon).

I want to see Shin and Sara make a re-appearance. Or atleast get a good mention.

Bidman should never be forgotten! :p

If it's good, with cool, attractive female characters, I'll be looking forward to doujinshi by some good artists. :) Although I think I'll be disappointed. :(

Some fan service is nice. Emillia. :D

Yeah, we like never get any doujinshi for Macross (any of the series).

I feel pissed off how stuff like One Piece and other more advertised series get an overflow of fan stories/comics n stuff.

That what we hear. A preview (read trailer) will premiere at the 25th anniversary concert on August 18th. The lead actress/new singer will also debut at the concert.

She even mentioned bad LA drivers at the con.

It's true. Every time I visit I forget about how bad it is.

It is your change signal. Use it for before you change lanes to give the person behind you a clue that your are going to change lanes.

all still endlessly preferable to the bay area drivers who drive abreast each other, all at 10 mph below the speed limit and who come to a screeching halt in the middle of the 880 so they can make their exit, which is, oh, two lanes over.

Ouch. I hope it's nothing terribly serious, though the fact that she's able to write after it is a very good sign. It sounds, according to Babelfish, at least, that the other driver may have been a drunken driver. (And don't get me started on the subject of drunken drivers -- my feeling is if someone gets behind the wheel blowing more than .08, it ought to be an automatic attempted manslaughter charge.) Either way, though, I know for a fact that people here in LA County can drive like maniacs given half a provocation.

Mari-san: Hayaku naorimasu-ne! :)

Damn that sucks, poor Mari!

I hate socal traffic. No one ever uses their turn signal. Or they use it only when they're cutting in front of you and slamming their brakes. Then again, I'm glad I never had to drive in France. They're a bunch of f@cking maniacs! And they drive slow compared to the psychos in Germany, from what I've heard.

I hope that Mari makes a quick recovery.

I can vouch for the crazy drivers in Europe, I was in Pompei when I had my first taste of "their skills".

Our taxi driver was quite Han Solo-ish getting us to our destination. What a wild ride THAT was.

They do?

If that is indeed the truth, then the speculation about "restarting" SDFM is true, however there have been a lot of rumors floating around, so we'll see what official word is given.

Ah ah ah...... The americans are so slow ^_^ with the cars.....

You.. Know... We are not crazy.... we drive with normal speed ( for us ).... And when i went in USA... I found that American was very very very ( ZZzzzZZZzzzZZZzzz ) slow. When I take my car.. I drive at 93 - 94 MPh And in France the speed limit on motorway is about 80 MPh.... and, when I went to Mauritius Island, I found that people are nuts... :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Are you sure you're not conflating two different facts?

1) That Mari Iijima (barring any complications from the auto accident) is going to be performing Minmay's songs at the 25th anniversary concert

and

2) That they're introducing a new voice actress for the new series

I've not seen from what limited sources I can find that the new actress has been referred to as Minmay. This isn't ruling out a "Zachary Quinto ia the new Spock, here's Leonard Nimoy to pass on the torch"-style announcement at the concert, but I just don't see any evidence to support it yet.

We have seen pre-production lineart but at this point, it is still really too early to tell since it was pre-production lineart. The working title of the new series is "Macross 25".

Theres a voice actress who is a singer, and people keep referring to as Minmei.

Ummm, no. However it may be in reference to the fact that the new VA/singer could be an unknown (to which Ms. Ijima was). However, the audition for the roll indicated that being tied to any particular studio would not impact the final decision. So there is the possibility that the finalist is a known individual.

Yeah, I'm really hungry for some confirmed facts about the series too. I'm really hoping the 25th Anniversary concert sheds some light on what's going on with Macross 25. We don't need much; just some basic information would be very encouraging.

He may be confusing the name of the concert with the debut singer.

The Firebomber meets Minmay is in reference to Hummingbird playing in a concert with Mari.

Hi.

You supporters who don't speak Japanese

must have been wondering what has happened to me.

I was in a pretty awful car crash on Sunday.

I stepped out for a few minutes to have lunch

with a friend and this happened

almost right after I left home.

Long story short,

in front of Beverly Center shopping mall,

while our car was stopped,

we were hit hard by another car from behind,

and that was the worst crash

I've ever been in.

I went to see a doctor today, and he told me

it will take about 1 month for me to feel better.

(I have a so called whiplash injury.)

I have to take a few medications for now

including steroid).

I'm still planing to go to Japan and do my shows,

but I might have to take it easy a bit.

Maybe... Mari's health problem is bad now.

So, by her Doctor's advice, she will shorten Concert time.(コンサートの時間が少し短くなるかもしれません。これはドクターからのアドバイスでした。)

Damn that sucks. I hate tailgaters. And yes, I am assuming some @ss was tailgating and was talking on their cell phone, then went boom.

I hope Mari heals up alright and doesn't worsen her neck injury.

Has Mari been in a lot of car crashes? I've only been in 2 in 40 years!

I hope she can make the concert.

I feel for her. I was in a crash on Jefferson Blvd a week ago (fortunately it was a minor fender-bender and not the pretty sizable collision she was hit with) and it scared the living daylights out of me. I hope that her injuries are restricted to just whiplash (although it seems that the medico she went to is confident that it is). And if the doc tells her to take it easy while performing on the 18th, she takes it easy. Simple as that. Career cannot trump health, because if she loses her health, so goes the career.

Given that, I say again: Get well soon, Mari-san! :)

As for the accident: LA drivers. Gotta love 'em. Mostly, because you can't have the majority of them involuntarily committed. I completely agree, Sumdumgai, that probably a cell-phone was to blame, from the sound of it. I have lost count of the people on LA County roads who do stupid-ass things or who just plain are not paying attention to the road because they're yakking on those stupid boxes that AT&SprinTmobixtel have said we all desperately need to have (sorry about the small rant, but cell phones are a pet peeve of mine). It sounds like (admittedly, we're only getting her side of the story) she wasn't at fault, and that perhaps the other driver was also going way too fast (Being stopped, she was presumably at an intersection, and so the damage was a bit major for someone going the appropriate speed/slowing down correctly and just taking too long to stop) and was distracted. I hope she sues the other driver down to parade rest!

Not to ressurect a debate from the other 25th Anniversary thread, but I just have to say, after seeing this review for Patlabor the Movie from Bandai Visual Japan, I stand corrected about the likelihood of a hypothetical Japanese domestic Macross 25 DVD release carrying an English dub.

Cool steroids now Mari can fight A1 in a death match!

In my neck of the woods. They all slow down to 10 mph under the speed limit when they approach every intersection. The light is green. The path is clear but they slow down.
