  1. From the text comments: megaupload com/?d=D7BW748Z Mileage may vary with the full song.
  2. Check the user comments for the video. I think the anthem was used as BGM for Robotech after it flopped or something. BS indeed.
  3. Guess that's a good thing about the Zentradi coming when they did. That would've been embarrassing. I guessing somewhere down the road, when they get past all the stuff breaking down, it would probably look like the first mission in Homeworld or something.
  4. Was there any explanation of what the U.N. Spacy was going to do with the SDF-1 after the launching ceremony in ep.1? If the Zentradi didn't appear suddenly, would there be additional testing of it's weapons and fold drive or even plans to use it to reestablish the Mars base?
  5. I agree, that's the part of the fandom that really troubled me. It's ironic, because as well as being harsh about Macross Frontier, those two apparently hate each other as well. For the love of Robotech, go figure. I previously associated these guys with the part of the fandom that approved the pieing and other acts against Tommy Yune and the current leadership. Is that crowd actually big?
  6. I usually listen just to hear him freak out and/or embarrass himself on the Internet. IIRC, Doug slammed the first episode of Frontier because of the Messiah, the EX-Gears and because they used tanks instead of Destroids. Then, he skipped 20+ episodes and slammed a random episode because of the singing affecting the Vajra. Heck, when he did an interview with Tom Bateman he called him out when Tom said Macross Frontier was good. Oh, and now the Robotech Masters can beat the ENTIRE U.N. Spacy forces of Macross II. In fact, they would last the equivalent of 1 to 6 episodes at the most of the Southern Cross arc.
  7. Sorry if this is abrupt, just needed to get this off my chest. This is just an observation made over the past year: Some people on robotech.com and other die-hard fans felt the same way even before the series started to the very end. I dare say they wanted it to fail because it was a Macross series and not part of their universe. Treiz isn't the only one out there. There's dougbendo, who loves Robotech to the point where it has driven him insane. Guess the backlash from The Shadow Chronicles still runs deep in the fandom. If they aren't happy with the direction of their franchise, everyone else can't be either. But then, they're probably satisfied at the likely event that it will never leave Japan and screw with their nostalgia. But at this point, it's hard to see if they can do better. Call it envy perhaps? About me: I became an anime fan (probably a mecha fan too) in the mid 90s and found out about Macross in about 2000. By 2006 I got burned out with the whole genre and stopped watching anime for a while to work on RL stuff. Ironically, I got back into it after downloading, forgetting, and finally watching the Macross Frontier ep.1 Deculture edition in March. Frontier wasn't perfect, but for the first time in a while I actually cared where the plot and characters were going. I'm not one to nitpick if the show is entertaining. Also didn't know about the Robotech fandom until this year, and by now it was probably best for my sanity. Coming into it with few expectations, the unusually high expectations for the show online surprised me: -It's anime, animation flaws come with the territory. Remember the knife fight? -It was [promoted as(?)] the 25th anniversary celebration of the franchise, so expect shout-outs. At least it didn't follow Gundam's model of reinvention year after year. -And hardcore shippers...
