Macross General SCOOPUDA thread

Recommended Posts

Those are pics from the Megaroad Launch Ceremony which I am hoping to have a report of up by the end of the week.

Three of the actresses from Musicalture were there. One of them was the winner of the Actress 'Wing" of the Miss Macross Contest.

Seriously, you need to explain the stuff you post and stop expecting others to do it for you.....

神田沙也加は・・・?

Sayaka Chan is not a newbie. She is Matsuda Seiko’s daughter.

I really think she is cute than Miss Macross 30...

Oh, BELIEVE me, I know that better than anyone. Ask VF5SS or Renato if you don't trust me...

In that picture I'm guessing that Sayaka is sitting on Megumi's right, Aya Endo on the left, Shou Hayami is the dude in the suit and Mika Doi is standing on... his right?

To show something to the other person depends on your own presentation ability. Not only translation thing, you see? To explain things to the other people easly and understandable is essential to human communities. Without it, you couldn't even take out a bank loan to entrepreneurs.

Just updated the music special piece on the front page. Will have a few more updated details tonight:

http://www.macrosswo...-musix-special/

EDIT: Added broadcast pamphlet details

片木ゆき is the winner of 550 contestants.

I remember Megumi is the winner of 5000.

Macross 25, 5000

Macross 30, 550

POOooor Macross Diva...

.....Sayaka Chan is not a newbie. She is Matsuda Seiko’s daughter.

I really think she is cute than Miss Macross 30...

You are actually comparing Apples to Oranges there. Miss Macross 25 was for a major role in an anime series and associated music deal. It was a kindofa a BIG thing. Miss Macross 30 is for two (actress wing and songstress wing) complete newcomers that wont necessarily be playing the main role and is for a live production in Tokyo that lasts for a week. The scale (and stakes) arent really comparable.

As for cuteness, Yuki is supposed to be a complete amatuer. thats where the interest and appeal lies for the audience. She doesnt even know how to speak properly in public yet. Sayaka is an older, trained professional and it shows. The two have very diferent roles and got equally different audience responses at the Launch Ceremony.

In that picture I'm guessing that Sayaka is sitting on Megumi's right, Aya Endo on the left, Shou Hayami is the dude in the suit and Mika Doi is standing on... his right?

You would be correct sir! Back row from left: Mika Doi, Sho Hayami, Tomo Sakurai, Aya Endo, Megumi Nakajima.

Front row is for the MUSICALTURE representatives: (from left) Yuki Katagi (winner of the 'Actress Wing' of Miss Macross 30), Kanae Yoshi (from '9nine') and Sayaka Kanda.

Oh, BELIEVE me, I know that better than anyone. Ask VF5SS or Renato if you don't trust me...

Dude, I spent Sunday witnessing Sayaka first hand. We have much to discuss when we next get some drinks ;-)

The winners of the Miss Macross 30 Contest have been officially announced:

http://macross30.com/mmc/

Singer Wing: Haruka Chisuga (20y/o from Iwate)

Actress Wing: Yuki Katagi (19y/o from Osaka)

Interestingly, while Haruka outright won the Singer category, there was no grand winner for the actress category. Yuki was an applicant who the judges thought had a character that they wanted to portray in the Musicalture. Yuki's forst appearance on stage was at the Megaroad launch ceremony last Sunday.

Here's a figure to go with that Basars cosplaying Sheryl.....a Niji iro kuma Mylene! http://masterfileblo...09/06/1136.html
The stamp rally at Tokyo Dome is for two clear files. There will also be a total of 5 attractions that have been Macrossified in some way. Will post details over the weekend: http://www.macross30.com/yuuenchi/

About Nico-Nama (Niconico Live)?

The Macross 30th Anniversary urgent special program will be aired on Nico-Nama.

Full of the info of Macross FB7, the Musiculture, and the SD amusement park in Tokyo Dome City attractions for 90 minutes including the FB7's untold one. The staffs will answer the viewers' questions.

The guests will be appeared later.

On Sep 13th 21:00~22:30(JST).

http://live.nicovide...tch/lv107025837

I wonder if this one could be watchable outside of Japan. I remember the Culture Japan Special Program by Danny Choo was aired not only by Nico-Nama (in Japan), But also live.niconico.com.

But Harmony Gold, Hmm.

Thanks for the info. I suspect Culture Japan is able to be broadcast internationally because Danny Choo specifically wanted it that way -- that is, after all, his main aim. I am not sure if BigWest is willing to go to the trouble of doing that, but we shall see.

Danny may be watching MW. He sometimes says he liked Macross so much. And in his autobiography, Focker's face is in his TV set from his photo.

I re-watched Culture Japan Season 2 episode 10. When he was asked, "Your Japanese is amaging, how did you get so good at it?" his answer was, "It all started out with the 'Super Dimension Fortress Macross' movie."

And today's his Facebook page. "Macross Mecha Manual" was posted. What a coincidence.

http://www.facebook....dannychoodotcom

I found this article in the Culture Japan web site by chance.

I wonder if Gina is a member of MW.

"'7''s radio-cassettes carelessly forgot to show the setting of the contents." (Haruhiko)

"Minmei is cute, however she's a girl who's a nuisance to other people. I want to preserve that." (Haruhiko)

So how does this work? Shirow comes up with the concept and story and Rikudo the actual manga?

I'd also say Shirow hasn't done anything relevant with a story for the past 10 years now.

What's the work called anyway?

またカブってしまったのねん。なんか色々とスンマソン^^;

Anyway, it seems that the numbered tickets are not distributed for this event. Can't believe it.

http://tgs.cesa.or.jp/index.html

Even the Toki-towa event needs tickets...That game is not so famous and has not been sold yet.

We should keep an eye on the news about the ticket distribution.

post-14942-0-71056700-1347546580_thumb.jpg

From the special program in Nico-Nama.

#1

From Sep 22nd, the new trailer of FB7 including Fire Bomber's new song will be revealed. As Tochiro wrote in FB7 thread. :-)

From the day the TGS event is held. Hmm. Not the coincidence, I guess.

#2

The Musiculture web site was revised today, and the sample voices and the songs were added.

#3

The food menu of SD Amusement Park's tie-up. Kakizaki's beef stake and pineapple salad. lol

Great Mechanics.DX 22

Awesome cover of the Yamato. The artist got the weathering and lighting JUST right:

http://www.futabasha.co.jp/booksdb/book/bookview/978-4-575-46468-9.html

Starship Troopers: invasion:

Aramaki states that the bugs are approximately 85% that of those that appeared in "Starship Troopers". They were reduced in size because the volume of the ships that used the existing bug size would become too large.

Amino Testuro Interview (4 pages)

"Macross 7" is a simulation of how far a guy who has a purpose will go.

The bold text in the interview:

Cutting through the depiction of the hero's purpose is rock.

The thing that was unknown in "Macross" has, conversely, turned out to be a large weapon.

Your 4 cool productions have become a part of the life of the fans.

Macross FB7

The bold text: For the first time ever! The nation-wide theatrical screening event of "Macross FB7", the world view collaboration that crossed over productions, has been determined starting from October 20th (Thursday).

The Setting Establishment (regular article that ends the magazine, featuring):

The VF-19 Kai Excalibur (Fighter Valkyrie) from Macross 7 (6 pages)

Summary: the text and images all appear to be something we've seen before (well, if you have books like Macross Chronicle or This is Animation: Macross 7 TV Animation Series). Nevertheless, it's got all the VF-19 Kai collected in one spot (including the eps. 11 VF-1 FAST pack prop equipped version), along with comparisons to the VF-19S, speaker pod, speaker units, PPB, leg missiles, landing gear, cockpit and guitar control stick, Sound Booster No.1 and Speaker Pod Sigma.

The last page features the other Sound Force VFs, but interestingly, the fighter mode pictures of both are with the Sound Booster No.2 and No.3 craft attached. I've seen the VF-11MAXL Kai with the Sound Booster attached in fighter mode before (I'm sure everyone remembers it + Fold Booster), but I've never seen the VF-17T Kai with the Sound Booster attached in fighter mode. The only problem is that the images are really small...

... nevertheless, the name is quite interesting: VF-11MAXL Kai Thunderbolt (Mylene Valkyrie) & VF-17T Kai Nightmare (Storm Valkyrie).
