well, i was thinkin if the new series that Shoji K is doing is macross, what time period should it be?

I say animate the first part/half of Macross M3 with Max and Millia/Miria as the main characters.

what do the masses (all 760 of them) on MW have to say/think?

Do we even know is a macross series ? from the little we´ve read there´s no mention of it being macross...

Well I guess I´ll play the game and overly hype myself like the rest of the people here <_<

Edit: I think the best period would be during the mid 20s to 30s , in a colony planet , with VF-5000s as the main fighter and VF-9s and maybe variable Glaugs (or Neo glaug I can´t remeber the one from M3 :( )

How about a story set in the era when the Protoculture was still around? During the war vs. the Supervision forces or when the Zentradi are first being created. Lots of story potential and fairly wide open in terms of continuity in that time period.

2020-2035 range, to fill that gap some. Give some new characters the spotlight, to keep things fresh. Maybe give Max and Millia a small role, so as not to make them the center of things again. This will allow them to skip over song energy this time, and keep it more traditional combat style. Were the VF-17's out in the 2030's? I can't find their rollout date for some reason.

I would still like to see more on the Megaroad 1 and it's disappearance. Hikaru, Misa, and VF-4's. But Kawamori said he was done with that story unfortunately. Unless he changes his mind. :unsure:

Gotta be after 2051....I want to see my enhanced VF-19XA make an appearance...and also they could tie in how the Hikaru Party's descendants are found...or something tying in the "classic Macross" charas...just my stupid opinion.

if u really think about it, Mac 7 didnt have Millia and Max as the major stars, they had the band for that job.

that's why i said 2015 - 2022-ish because it would be nice to see Max and Millia as the stars.

I'd like to see that, maybe poke around the Macross's origin a little, but still keeping it a mystery like the Millenium Falcon's origins. Maybe also show the beings Zentraedi like Millia, Britai, Kamujin, etc. were cloned from.

I change my vote. That would be cool. It would allow for a completely new set of characters. At the moment I would like something new. I don’t want to see Max and Millia again, maybe later.

I would like to see a show set a couple decades after the Macross TV-series, just to see more of the VF-4 Lightning. I think that valk rocks, my fave along with the VF-19

I'd rather not see anything set further out in the future. There's too many gaps that need to be filled first.

I'd love see a series about the Delta Wars. Largely cause I wanna know what the hell they ARE :lol:

And hey, Isamu could be in it :)

My wote was 2015-2020

It would make it possible to have cameos, or maybe even leading parts, for the old crew (Hikaru/Misa/Minmay are out of the question though). And we'll get a better look at VF-4's and other obscure valks

No matter what era it takes place in (if it's even Macross...), it will no doubt feature brand new mecha. You won't be seeing a VF-4 or whatever else in the main role because new series need new mecha (from a sponsor's standpoint), so expect any familiar mecha to be relegated to "backup" duty.

We've never seen properly used VF-4's though, so it will be the first time they will have been fully animated. We have never seen them transform on screen even. Just a few seconds in fighter in FB 2012. The VF-9 could also be used. Something from the 2020's/2030's range could have a lot of potential.

But it wouldn't have variable mechs.... so it wouldn't be as fun. :(

Was Britai's ship part of the Megaroad 1 fleet? We already saw Exedol again, and I wouldn't mind seeing him again either. But if he was with the Megaroad fleet then he's out too.

Britai was not on the fleet. The only thing mentioning about him was that his flagship was formally reassigned to the Megaroad-1 fleet as an escort vessel.

Britai would later be commander-in-chief of the UN Spacy afterwards.

Any story dating beyond 2012 works for me, because I would like to see any of the Macross' bridge crew as supporting characters. ;) That way, we can show to those foolish Robotechies that the crew were not killed in the final battle. :angry: Those people pisses me off whenever they disbelieve of the crew's fate and I would love to see a Macross show to piss them off that the crew are alive. :p Those Robotechies got themselves confused onto why the Macross still stands in Macross Plus and I would love to see themselves scratch their heads when they see that the crew are alive.

Personally, I would like to see the 2051+ era, which we may see something new in the exploratory angle or about the aftermath of the anti-UN coup that occured in VF-X2.

I said 2015-2020, but I'd like anything in the 2015-2035 range. Could be anything about the early colony fleets, rebuilding Earth, or new stuff that we don't know about. I think that would be an interesting time period to flesh out since that is really when humans truly developed their presence in space and developed themselves into what we see in Mac Plus and Mac 7.

Plus, the VF-4 would finally get the lovin' it deserves :)

Just my little odd story idea while we speculate:

If we go to a 2051+ show, I would like to see a new Zentradi group show up, go through the whole culture thing, and have them tagging along with whatever colony fleet or whatever. And then while everyone is still adapting to each other, have the Supervision Army show up, with a few actual Protoculture running things there. Could be interesing.

This would allow for the Supervision Army to be hooked up with whatever those couple of Protoculture designed for them, more advanced than the standard fare. We'll never know where the full race of Protoculture went. They are like a lost civilization or one of those old races in Babylon 5 that left this Galaxy long ago. But there could be a few individual holdouts, pulling strings still for amuzement.

And we could have mass VF-19's and at least a few VB-6's.

Also, this would also allow for one hell of a fleet battle.

I have been saying for years now that they should go back and visit the original Space War 1. Look at how much milage Gundam got from the one year war. I like the Destroid idea but mine was to focus on the last half of the war on Max and Milia's squadren. They could make one of the newbs the main charicter(Make her female) and how they learn to be an elite squad under the teaching of M+M. ;)

Anything from 2013-2039 is okay, as long as the story is good and Kawamori gets around to filling in the gaps in the VF-series. Also, a OVA based on VF-X2 would be highly entertaining.

But the best choice is for 2051+, because of the possibilities. Maybe, tired of corruption within the UN and with a growing sense of nationalism, many powerful countries break away from the UN. Or maybe a colony declares independence. Or maybe a colony fleet stumbles upon the last outpost of Protoculture, and the story that some people want from during the Supervision Army/Stellar Republic conflict could be told in flashback scence (that way, you get the old stuff but you get new stuff and new VFs as well).

Hmmm.

How about an SDF-Macross timeline retelling (like a Zero-ish redrawing of the orig. show). Or maybe an extention of Plus...

I don't really care though... I just want more.

Been there , done that : - that story was already done in Macross M3 for Dreamcast , Max & Millia adopted an infant Zentradi pilot as their own child and trained her and integrated her into their Dancing Skull Squadron.

I´m surprised by the number of people that say they would want a circa 2012-2030 series but when we see the poll itslef the 2050+ option is getting all the votes :huh:

I want to see VF-5000 and VF-9 , as well as Variable glaugs and the development of the VF-11 , kinda like M3 but with an alternative story set in a colony confonting rough Zentrans who have developed new mechas (yeah!) , a mix of VF-X2 kinda plot in M3 period. with high quality traditional animation. :lol:

i thought that it was their kid...

that's what i was saying though, just "redo" M3 as a TV series and do the VF-4, VF-9, and the development of the VF-11

But you know... the development of the VF11 starts in M3. :)

And if you want to see all those unknown valks... you are better off wishing for something similar to M3. ;)

I'd like to see a story about 2040 and onwards. Perhaps about the current conflict between UN Spacy and the Anti-UN.

easy answer:

a new series wouldn't work without new valks

tho the Hory Froating head still misses some 'real' VF's in his lineup from 1-22

in 2012-2050

best guess and easiest solution would be to evolve further

Yes indeed, make it a "we are finding/found the Protoculture" show

but it might be hard not to turn something like that into a Battlestar Galactica Clone

and then it would be too easy to use the sure-hit Missing Megaroad 01 story
