Macross in the weirdest places

Recommended Posts

Macross DYRL is in Bamboo Blade: Episode 7. Tamaki's kendo sensei gives her a laser disc of Macross DYRL as a gift.

This was the last anime I expect to see Macross to me shown in.

"Maguross Aji Oboete Imasu Ka" and the "Valkyrie" is shaped like a tuna fish hahaha!

Nice find. It takes keen attention to detail to catch these details.

Speaking of Sheryl and Ranka cosplayers...watch this.

Life In A Day "Anime Otaku in Tokyo" (english subtitle)

Their travels start around the four minute mark.

Yeah i just checked that out after it was linked on another forum. Not really the weirdest place to see something Macross related, though still a fun watch.

Odd. Of all the pictures that they would use, they used that one. One would think that they would have used a character from one of the larger/more popular series...

I can understand why it's not SDFM or DYRL. But why not M7 or MF?

Wow that is rather strange. Did you ask anyone about it Einherjar?

Here's a closer image.

Zeta Plus, E.T., Tron, and Komilia...

Nope, nothing strange about that. Why are you puzzled about it?

Didn't know Zeta Plus and Komilia appeared in 1977-1984....

The exhibit focused more on Western science fiction over the years. I think anime just got a nod because it only became widespread relatively recently. Unfortunately, whoever made the exhibit probably took a random bunch of sci-fi anime to display there. For example, there were models of a mech from Five Star Stories and Char's Zaku and Sazabi from Gundam, but not the first Gundam itself.

Think of it this way, if there was something more familiar/extravagant from Macross, a certain U.S. company would be all drama queen about it.

I could never eat such an epic piece. Seriously.

Now if it was covered in dark chocolate, then maybe.

My brother was recently house shopping and in one of the houses that him and his wife loved (which they are now purchasing) the owner had various 1/60 vf-1 yamato's posed around the house and an unboxed 1/48 VF-1. When my brother put in an offer on the the house I had him ask for the valkyries to be included but the owner (who is already in Hong Kong) wouldn't sell because they are too precious to him.......I guess I can't blame him :(

I'm currently playing Final Fantasy XIV and happened to see a character named Hikaru Ichijyo and Ranka Alto. Does that count?

Going by the expressions on some of the audience members, they have no idea what it is. :p

Agreed. Also am I the only one thinks it probably not just be a mere coindence that the next slide they used was of Tobey Maquire as Spiderman?

Looks a lot like a Ranka costume on the Office. The website I found this picture says its Katy Perry.

^Just your typical female anime character in a china dress. She does look a little bit like Minmay though.
