Just to claim first post rights.

New poll is up. Poll topics will normally be about the episode or something about the episode. But given the fact that many have seen episode 1, we'll jump to other aspects of the show.

Please remember to observe the guidelines.

I've never followed a series in "real time" before...how long does it usually take for quality fansubs to show up?

(Please forgive the n00bity of this question...)

I'd like to know as well. I've never done the "real time" following either.

EDIT: Wow. Nice pictures. That looks like the Attack Mode of the Macross 25 to me :)

...some folks at animesuki have already seen it:

Kind of different from Deculture edition

- OP and ED (ED is really short)

- New scenes with the characters

- New Song and some new music I think

- Animation improved in some areas and totally redone in an area or two (Concert is TOTALLY different now)

- Some scenes removed obviously

- The Eyecatch is OMG AWESOME

Overall Macross Frontier ep1 is waaaay better than the Deculture Edition. They removed scenes but also changed a bunch of stuff. Animation, pacing, CG, etc seem to have improved since they last aired it too. Can't wait for ep2

I have never followed an entire show before, but I did follow Gundam 00 for a while. They usually appeared within a day or two.

Hopefully this show will be viewed as a popular one and would therefore get priority from the fansubbers over other shows. I worry about that.

I'd wait at least a full week for a decent sub, though with it being so similar a sub of it will go quicker.

Well if that image of the Macross 25 is true then Kawamori might have done it's re-design as well! Since it's got the same-ish chest plate config.

Don't know if want.... :unsure:

But if it's true then just how much of the mechanical did he actually re-design!!

Like I thought, De-Culture edition wasn't a director's cut, it was a rough cut.

For the people who have actually seen the first episode, which do you find better; the decultured or the new version?

Thanks for all the pics T-Sniper. And btw, Welcome to Macross World! :)

A good guess it was. It makes that it was a rough cut since the show wasn't officially released until April this year. I'm looking forward to seeing it.

I just checked Veoh and YouTube. Nothing has shown up yet. We may actually see the RAW show up online soon so we can at least watch the show even without subtitles :)

So what was shown was it the release version of episode 1 and 2 or just episode 1?

Just episode 1. But most of us have seen episode 1 back in December so we know what will happen already (which is why I attached it to the episode 2 thread). We just get to see some lovely new animation and the themes this time around.

Macross Frontier's BATTLE MODE?!?!?!?!?!?

If so, it looks like they've resolved all of the beefs we had with Battle 7.

Looks like Macross-canon style arms and SDF-1 style booms over the shoulders... That's really exciting.

Also, apparently that purple VF was not a pre-production model, but appears in the show. My money's on it being a Vajra VF, piloted by that ghosty Brea Stern lady (who looks to have some interaction with Ozma)

I can has fansubz? Plz?

Ehh, I'm getting a chick-vibe from the way the character is holding itself, and it looks like (s)he's doing a hair-flip. Ple s the costume seems low-cut, so I hope it's a girl. Really, though, we've had both in the past; but who did you prefer: Millia or Gabil?

Saw the episode on nicovideo.

Mods, you can delete the link if you want.

(this Japanese site needs a registration)

The purple VF may be the VF-24, since the transformation looked similar to the VF-25.

Anyway, the episode was a bit like Macross Plus: you just feel the scenes were made for the original music of the first cut. Also there seems to be a better introduction for characters in the DE, but I will wait for subtitles to see what is said in the new scenes.

Meep!! I hope that they didn't cut good scenes from the first episode :( I liked it just the way it was. But if you say it's better with the added scenes, I'll take your word for it. I hope to be able to see it soon! ^_^

I think I might be downloading it now. But it might just be the decultured version and not labeled as such. I got two and half hours to go, and it keeps rising. :(

Chances are it's the Deculture edition. The actual episode aired only about 3 hours ago.

Yeah, that's the AniServ RAW. They list it as such on their site, but obviously the others aren't picking up on it.

Negative, Tokyo Toshokan has it already and I'm sure it is disseminating quite quickly by now...

Well, when I first started downloading it was only a few hours old...I thought it aired about 6 hours ago
