Got my shipment of the first two volumes last week, along with the second VF-1 Master File and an issue of the Chronicle.

Loving it so far. This has inspired me to resume my efforts at learning Japanese. Or at least enough to be able to translate using a dictionary.

I used to think that talk of a reanimated SDF Macross was blasphemy, but now I'm not so sure.

I also have to add that I think we need a new appreciation thread specifically for Minmay in The First. I mean, damn

Well I ended up ordering all three goiing to end up with Vol. 2 though. And even though I don't understand Japanese, I can either 1 get Rosestta Stone to learn or 2 scan the pages and commision someone to translate a script per page, so I will digitaly edit the words in via photoshop since I do have the program.

What episode is Macross the First Currently on...in relation to the original SDFM....I wonder if it will actually match (in count) the original SDFM TV show episode for episode?

It seems that MtF is bringing that portion of the Macross timeline inline with the rest of the Macross Universe thus far (stylistically)....for example....DYRL "as a movie within the Macross universe" is now a better representation of Space War I (stylistically) if compared to the "look" of Mtf vs SDFM...it is closer in look to MtF than SDFM.......the same goes for all Macross productions made after DYRL...they all seem to follow the DYRL style versus the original SDFM "look"......when all is said and done...what will be the official chronicle for Space War I? Or is MtF a "TV mini-series" within the Macross world? :lol:

Does anyone know if the Macross Frontier movies are also "movies" within the Macross Frontier era? I do believe there are stylistic differences, for example valk armor that is seen only in the Macross Frontier movies and not the TV show.....

Each book so far seems to cover about two or three episodes, often by mashing some events together. The latest episode was #8, which covers the first part of "Bye Bye Mars."

For all of you that have already bought Vol #3 of Macross the First, are there any notable addition/changes compared to the single episodes that appeared on Macross Ace? Issue 1 & 2 had some new pages and/or slight retouches

Got my copy of Vol. 3 of Macross the first, last week. Thanks to a zip code snafu it ended in the post office in my town instead of at my job, so I was able to pick it up before heading to New Castle to pick up some things at BJ's. Though I couldn't understand what the characters were talking about, but I can feel the tension and the action especially between the battle of Max and Kamjin. Whoa Max in a Destroid!!!! He kicked butt and Kamjim couldn't touch him. It's also the first time that I saw the Prometheus jettisoned off the Macross so it can performs the first ever "Macross Asteroid Attack", that's what I think they said, and after that was was over the Prometheus flys back to the Macross, which I think was the coolest idea they came up with. I say Mikimoto's art is ever evolving and getting better sice his early years SDF Macross as it's Character Designer,. Can't wait for 1 and 2 to come in, now I must contiplate on purchasing Rosetta Stone to learn how to read Japanese or commission someone to translate.

You WON'T learn to read from that piece of doo-doo software (let alone talk... but that's ultimately debatable as it depends on one's brain type).

Best way to learn? Take a look in a bookstore and purchase the one that you think will work the best for your study habits. Option 2 is to use Google and find some free resources to do the same. Mileage will vary.

There is actually an online service that offers weekly conversations in Japanese with your instructors via the web to reinforce your regular language studies. Pretty cool, but pricey...

So are they moving the manga to Newtype Ace or no?

As Sketchley said, Newtype Ace #1 is out...I gotta admit, I'm not really eager about buying this magazine every month just to get Macross the First (and the news section: "Macross Ace Plus"). It's monthly (which, yes, probably means more frequent Macross the First...but also probably means fewer pages per issue) and it's more expensive than Macross Ace was...AND there's really nothing else in the magazine that I care about (the debut issue's Gundam the Origin T-shirt isn't bad, though...I wonder if it'll fit me?).

(Only one way to find out...)

(Huh. A little snug, but not bad.)

Anyway, yeah...as Sketchley also said, this chapter is a "special"...

...covering the four months between Minmay's 15th birthday and the launch of the Macross, with a short epilogue as the Macross approaches Mars. There's a new character, "Hikaru Watanabe," who's an aspiring photographer and Minmay's classmate. Since he doesn't get to the island before the ship's launch, I assume he's gonna end up toasted by Zentradi death beams... Too bad, he seems like a nice kid.

Is it drawn by Mikimoto or is this special drawn in a different style like First Contact?

It's Macross the First, so yeah, it's Mikimoto.

So I've been searching around and found nothing. Wasn't there a good picture of Hikaru's Vf-1j colors from the first? Seems it was all colored in on the old lineart, but the new scheme. I've found a Hase 1/48, b/w scans, and that Wave battroid; but not the pic I remember. Am I crazy?

It's on Page 4 of Volume 3, behind the Minmay color poster prints.

Thanks! I don't own the books, but that enabled me to comb the intarwebz in the correct way for that specific image. I thought I'd seen it here... I'm aiming to paint my Hasegawa VF-1A as a brownie, styled after this design.

Almost as mythical: a regular paycheck in this podunk town that makes daycare worth the cost! :wacko: I'm also saving up for a 19 or 17 @ Xmas this year too.

At any rate, here's what I had in mind! And now, back to our regularly scheduled topic...

Ah, they're not that much...surely you can spare $20.00 or so, yes?

And at any rate...the brownie scheme in the comic is same as in the series. Only Hikaru's VF-1J and the VF-1D are different...

A couple of years ago, I put a few in the Macross Ace thread. They should still be there, somewhere towards the beginning...

Has there been any word on the continuation of M:The First? It seems like the next installment should be coming up, but I haven't seen anything about when exactly?

Edit:actually I meant to refer to the individual installments that used to be in Macross Ace.
