  1. @Seto Kaiba Have a quick question for you. Since it has been guessed by many that the new Delta 6 Siegfried that will be shown in the new movie will be most likely piloted by a Windermeran Aerial Knight, I have been wondering will there be any difference in that fighter over regular human-piloted fighters? By that I mean due to a Windermerean being a bit more sturdy then a regular old human could there be a difference in the Siegfried's equipment to reflect this like a difference in its ISC or Engines? Just a thought I had since the Delta 6 was first shown and many starting guessing that it would have a Windermeran piloting it.
  2. So, with a second chapter posted I figured I should post on this website that I have started a Macross Delta AU Story. Titled Knight of Xaos it follows the character of Dominic Udette as he joins Xaos and Delta Flight to protect his friend Freyja Wion when she joins the human idol group Walkure. Here is the summery for the story, Dominic Udette was quite content to continue his training at the Royal Aerial Knight Academy of the Windermere Kingdom before then graduating to join one of the Aerial Knight Orders where he could defend his family and home from any aggressor that came to their door. However, before he could fully graduate from the Academy he is summoned back home and asked by his family's liege lord to become the guardian of man's daughter, one of Dominic's closest friends, as she follows her dreams of joining the human idol group Walkure. From there Dominic and his new liege lady join in a wild journey as war is brought to their neck of the space. A war that will see Dominic fighting to protect the young woman he had sworn himself to defend...including from his own people. Links to the various sites I posted this story for those who prefer one of the following sites to read their fanfiction. Fanfiction.Net Archive of our own Spacebattles Sufficient Velocity Enjoy! And please tell me what you all think of it! Thanks!
  3. So someone just posted this link on another forum I sometimes swing by and I must say I am actually quite impressed. Basically the links leads to a repository of image/pdf archives of tons of scans for Artbooks, Databooks, and other such background material. It is a treasure trove of background information that looks to be usually only seen in Japan or at Anime Conventions. Figured I drop the link here for there is a whole subarchive for Macross. Enjoy!

  4. Also don't forget that thanks to the abilities of the Protoculture Ship the Windermere have in their hands, they are able to send their own fighters through Fold Space without any sort of booster system. Basically some sort Fold Portal System that allows the Windermere to send their forces anywhere across the Brisingr Globular Cluster. Later in the series Xaos manages to use this sort of Fold Portal System to their advantage and sneak Delta Team along with Walkure onto Windermere IV itself.
  5. While it is dead, I wouldn't call Robotech stagnant as it still has its fans and followers after all. Yes, actually I have read it. While I wasn't totally thrilled about it I still was interested in it. My step brother showed me it trying to get me away from Robotech a few years ago. Rollseyes.
  6. That is your opinion, but while I am a Macross fan I also like Robotech. I really wish they managed to keep Shadow Chronicles going for I was actually interested in where they would take the story in that. I also wanted to see what they were going to do with Robotech Academy. Sigh. However, that said I do understand why everyone does not like Robotech.
  7. Honestly. While I am glad that things are looking up for Macross thanks to this, I am a bit sad that Robotech may not be a thing anymore. Robotech was my childhood and the reason I got into Macross in the first place so if Robotech goes the way of the dodo (or already has been as Seto has mentioned) then I do not know what to think about this. Sigh.
  8. Here is the link for the Anime News Network article of the short... https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2021-02-06/macross-frontier-anime-gets-brand-new-theatrical-film-short/.169225
  9. Blink. Is that an official summary of the movie's story?
  10. Wait a second. Are those Draken IIIs flying in formation with VF-31As at @0:07 of the Trailer?
  11. Thank you! Wow interesting, but short trailer cannot wait to see what we are getting with this new movie.
  12. Ummm... Raised Hand. Everyone is talking about a new trailer but I haven't even seen one yet. I just saw some Twitter messages about it. Where is this new trailer?
  13. As an add to this, just look what happened to the Jamming Bird later on in the series and how they failed.
  14. Hmmm... Somewhere around five thousand would be a good number if the Windermere had indeed two thousand Draken IIIs. Wasn't the QF-4000 a third the price of the VF-171? Since the Lilldraken is a bit smaller then Ghost it should be a bit cheaper then it. Or it would be a bit more expensive thanks to the extras it can equip like the jammer it equipped to knock down Walkure's drones.
  15. You know, I often wonder how many Lilldrakens Windermere actually had since they were used as disposable grunts or shields more then once in the series. Not to mention I wonder what its price happens to be when compared to say a full-on military specced QF-4000 Ghost Fighter. Also did every Draken carry Lilldrakens or was that only the mainline Aerial Knights?
  16. I always thought it was kind of similar to the fan-created Voyuer/Vixen Semi-Variable Unit from the Unofficial Robotech Reference Guide.
  17. You do know that there is a fanfiction about that right?
  18. Raised eyebrow. Really? I really do not think that we will ever know who actually happens to Lady M.
  19. Ah. Should have guessed. Variable Fighter Girls. Similar to that of MS Girls from Gundam. Thanks.
  20. What's that? And yes I would love to see some of the side stories be animated in some way. Like the Macross The Ride.
  21. Can anyone think of one during Delta. I cannot remember one right now but it has been awhile since I watched the series. I think there was one with that one Mercat but I don't remember it entirely.
  22. Shrug. I didn't see this thread earlier or I would have posted what I think about Delta over a year ago when I first watched the series. However, I did not see this thread and while I have posted elsewhere on what I think about the series I haven't put it into one large post like this one will be. So here we go. Cough. Okay. Delta first came out around the time I was still going to my local community college and I remember I had finally managed to watch both of the Frontier movies trying to watch them for around a year or so. I wasn't all that impressed with what I heard about the story of the series therefore I turned my attention to other fandoms. Since that was the time that I was really getting back into Gundam. Over the years since then I heard more about the series through clips posted on Youtube or through posts on forums like Spacebattles but it was only during late last year when I was preparing for writing for that years National Novel Writing Month that I buckled down and watched the series in its entirely. I was quite surprised to find that I did kind of enjoy the series more then I thought I would. While I did see that bit of magical girl in the series as some people mentioned it did not really turn me off since in my adulthood I have been more interested in Magical Girl anime then I was during my teenage years. So it actually made some things interesting for me. Though I should mention that looking back after rewatching the entire Frontier Series I can see that all of that so called magical girlness in the series is actually technology shown a couple of times during Frontier. Still it did not turn me away from watching the series. I actually liked the overall story and I liked the new Valkyries more then I liked the hero Valkyrie of Frontier the Messiah. Maybe it was because much of the fighting for Delta is on planets instead of the blackness of space but I loved the new Valkyries. I also liked the idea of the bad guys also having Valkyries themselves which was quite interesting. I also liked the Macross Elysion more then I did the Macross Quarter from Frontier. It reminded me more of the original SDF-1 then any other Macross series ship. I admit there were some things I did not like about the series as it went on, like Hayate refusing to wear a helmet or again not having any focus on the background Valkyrie pilots, but I got over that in time. After starting on the second cour of the series I was kind of leery for I had heard from some posts I have read that is were the story of the series starts going downhill. However, as I watched the second half of the series I found that I actually liked it. It wasn't good as the first half I admit but it wasn't all out bad in my mind. It had its pitfalls I admit but it was quite interesting. I kind of wish they expanded on the whole being out in space thing and having more refugees from the Cluster showing up over time but it was interesting. I also wanted them to expand a bit more on the Voldorians and their own resistance against Windermere a bit more. Still I did like this second half the series and I all out enjoyed the final battle for it was quite interesting in my mind. That said. As I mentioned there were plenty of stuff I really did not like about the series and some stuff I wished this focused more on, like a small amount more focus on the grunts of Xaos and NUNS, a bit more focus not on Xaos but the rest of the Cluster. You get the idea. With that said though I think that they used the time they had wisely. I really wished they had the series longer which would have allowed them to explore a bit more of these issues I had. Alright that is about it for this post. I hope I managed to get at one person to watch the series, but I do admit that it is not for everyone.
  23. Honestly. I think I mentioned it before but one major thing I want to see in the next Macross series would be Kawamori's original proposal for Delta which was a Competition between two different Valkyrie Demonstration Squads. I personally think that is going to be what the second Delta Movie is going to be about since the war story is over with the first movie therefore we could actually see that original proposal in some form with maybe a grand Walkure concert. Shrug. Just a guess. Still I have a couple of other ideas I want to see in the next Macross series. The first is something similar to that of the Megazone 23 series having two colony fleets getting into a war with one another. We had some of that in Frontier between the Frontier and the Galaxy but I want to have entirely being human vs human instead of being a backdrop of another human vs alien fight. I know we also got some of that in Delta but the Kingdom of Windermere are not really a human colony but a Protoculture seeded human-like alien race. Not to mention already established colony worlds. I want a war between two different colony fleets lightyears from any other human claimed space or colony. Just these two fleets that just decided to go at it for some reason or another. Anyways just an idea I would like to see. The second idea I have is maybe focusing on a human colony fleet encountering the Supervision Army in some form. Macross 7 had humanity fighting against the overall leaders in charge of the original Supervision Army the Protodeviln but not on the Supervision Army itself which is still in a constant fight with the Zentradi. Basically having a colony fleet stumbling into a portion of space that is a constant battlefield between a Zentradi Grand Fleet and a Supervision Army Fleet. I think that would be an interesting story and a different style from that of the original Macross. Okay. That is my couple of ideas for what we can expect for the next Macross series.
  24. Honestly, I could see a dedicated exploration of his relationship with that of his family. Mostly his father and that other man who is the adopted brother of Alto. Maybe, ending up with him end up becoming an actor in that one movie based on Macross Zero like what happens in the series itself but more of a central role. That kind of reignites his love of acting or something like that. That is the only real thing I can think of using Alto for if he never joins the SMS. You could also have him joining the regular NUNS Forces or something like that.
  25. Damn. Really, wish I did not live up in Northwest Vegas right now. Sigh.
