Next Gen - Netflix / Huge Macross Nod!! in Anime or Science Fiction Posted October 16, 2018 4 hours ago, tekering said: I thought it was a terrific film. Well-paced, gorgeous animation, with a very rich production design and some great vocal performances. It's a shame the film needed Netflix to get distributed, because we probably won't see any toys as a result... and it's one of the most toyetic movies I've ever seen! It positively cries for action figures. I assume you're referring to Ares in powered armor? Particularly the particle beam cannon... ...amirite? I actually saw a lot more Gundam than Macross in the mecha combat, but the anime influence is undeniable. Agreed, The similarities to Macross were incorporating multiple missile launchers, Targeting the missiles like Roy did in Macross Zero, and the pacing of the last fight like Guld had against the Ghost in Macross Plus. Just my thoughts. I though it was a good film with lots of heart! Way better than the latest Pacific Rim!
