Well Hayate pulls an Alto discovering he enjoys flying with a VF-171. Taking Frejya with him. Frejya does some newtype hax showing him a blue sky. Then they got shot down.

Why

no OP? Frontier had one for the broadcast episode.

Also...did I read correctly that the first Bluray will arrive in July?

LOVED the new footage. :)

So was it all purely tacked onto the end, or were there some more bits spliced throughout? (I only saw the last 5 mins).

Few very very slight cuts here and there to tighten it up.

Those last 4min are very cool though.

Really stoked that Hayate Immelmann

incorporated his dance moves into his mecha piloting. That was some great footwork and another homage to Plus too in his escape in battroid mode.

Fighter Mode with only one arm deployed? How.... why???

Haven't you heard? Everyone loves Bieber now

I owe whoever I was arguing with in the NYE thread an apology:

Hayate's skill level really is over the top lol

But he was badass so I'll allow it. I'm confused about the 171's cockpit location in battroid though. They made it look like he was sitting in an open gerwalk mode cockpit

Well they had to cut a bunch of stuff just to get in the new footage and stay within the running time so I guess there was just no room.

They cut the whole recharging boomerangs sequence for example

Reminiscent of

Yes, but that itself is homaging the original series. (but this did seem to be awfully similar to how Frontier did it, no variation at all)

It's under the chest plate. On the VF-171 Hayate took the whole thing was partially open.

I get the feeling the Blu-ray will be the full episode. Yeah, I was hoping for theme songs.

I wondered this as well. If for no other reason than more music. Is Ikenai Borderline the opening theme?

Other people answered already, but yes, it was all added to the end, with the rest receiving cuts.

What part of M+? (I only remember the movie because I've seen it the most, and I don't remember any fancy footwork.)

Wait.

Fighter Mode with only one arm deployed? How.... why???

I figured it was in Gerwalk mode with legs all the way back, so it just looks like it's in fighter mode. It was done before with M0 Roy Fokker.

I'm confused about the 171's cockpit location in battroid though. They made it look like he was sitting in an open gerwalk mode cockpit

EDIT:

Well, it seems VF5SS answered for me.

And I wasn't going to do screenshots, but, well, I did. Forgive the damage to your bandwidth.

I gave it a neutral not a negative review. I only watched the ending this time. That ending doesn't add much. It could have easily been added to the start of episode 2. I'm not that impressed but I need to see more than just one episode to know if I like it or not.

Think I liked where the preview episode ended more than where it ended here. The preview episode ended on a more natural break point...

rather than showing us Hayate coming down in a flaming wreck. That could have been saved for next week.

Or was it cuz they wanted to showcase the song?

Kajnrig, I was referring to Isamu flying up the building as Guld was shooting at him. You can see Hayate do the the same thing

That was quick----then I realized 90% of the dialogue was already translated weeks ago.

Well they did redo japanese donuts? I think the dialog was toughed up a lot but maybe I'm miss-remembering

Theat end totally set up the falling from he sky/pulling the girl into the cockpit scene...but I bet it's going to be Mirage saving Hayate and/or Freyja

I've got hype for #2!

Hey guys, I haven't been here since frontier aired so it's been a while.

I'm surprised by how much the final version of the episode "works". All those small cuts have really cleaned it up nicely.

I'm actually starting to like Delta.

Well that is the rule till subs are out given the new footage. Oh subs are out.

I must say Freyja is a very powerful space-time resonance singer to project that to Hayate. Then again given his rhythm and fold quartz pendant he was bound to sense it.

I can CQC never seen before used by Valkyries.

Mikumo and Arad see potential recruits in the two.

I can't imagine they'll remain for long. That stuff was to make up for limited budgets. I doubt Delta is exactly running on a limited budget.

How old are the characters? I'd like to know.

For... reasons.

Idols, it's Macross, they'll do fine.

From a civilian Destroid to breakdance fighting in a grunt 171, just what the heck is Hayate?
