    Nice, though I still say May'n/Sheryl can shut down any Macross singer past & present. But I'm glad they had Yami-Q-Ray "bring it."

    I just wonder if Kawamori will get to an eventual showdown with Protoculture & their perfected "Star Singer" vs Earth culture.

    I want a full fledge remake of the TV series with full VR support! Meaning, we can watch the show in VR using our VR headsets like ie an Oculus Quest, and during the show we are allowed to put ourselves in the Macross world with full VR support. For example, during the scenes when Minmay is holding her concert, we can watch it in VR with the option to put ourselves right at the front row of the concert. Another example would be when Hikaru has a dogfight in the Valkarie. The VR version will allow us just see the action from his eyes sitting in the cockpit of the Valkarie. That's just some examples of what we'll be able to do in the VR remake.

  3. We'll probably hear about a Japanese blu-ray release before we hear about a domestic streaming release, but it's really in Bandai's hands in how they want to handle dippinginto the U.S. market. I'm not super optimistic yet considering they haven't tried a U.S. streaming release of the first Delta movie or even the Frontier movies yet.

     Answering Keith:

    - What's the resolution? Bad guy corp captured or killed?

    Basically Battle Astrea was destroyed, Ian Cromwell and the Epsilon guy killed. Seems that they are just a part of Heimdall, and they have a lot other sympathisers hiding thruout the galaxy

    - Does the sexy new Yami-Q-Ray A.I. survive?

    During the battle basically Yami Freyja was affected by Freyja's song and actually decided to help Xaos instead. Hayate retrieved the Siren Delta unit but not to revive the AI, but to retrieve the DNA of Star Singer inside of it

    - Does anyone think to steal/save the badguy tech to retrieve the Megaroad?
    Since this involves creating a new Sharon Apply-Mikumo gattai, I don't think anyone would like to do it in the open but surely possible plot for upcoming series'

    - Just how much screen time does Max have?

    Quite a lot actually. His fight is just the one in the trailer and in the final battle, but basically once he joined the group he was with Arad all the time

    Why would the Megaroad have any influence over anything while trapped in the deepest darkest fold fault? If they can't get out, and assuredly no one else can get in, that puts the ship (is it trapped with its escort fleet too?) in a serious limited resource situation. Even farming on the ship(s), it's still an issue of entropy. But, how the hell would they fund anything in the galaxy proper? Are they somehow trading on the intergalactic stock market with the crews pensions & Minmay royalties? Why would anyone on the outside trust that they are who they say they are, and assumedly eventually go on to fund Xaos on credit?

    - My impression of this is that Lady M isn't funding anything directly. It's more like she using all the connections she has to make things move around the galaxy, to have Xaos made and some other entity supply money, etc. Max and Exedol mentioned something about them not knowing who Lady M is, just someone in the Megaroad-1. They don't trust them completely, but all her orders have been for good than not so they are following them.

    During Max and Arad's earliest conversation, they were talking while eating and there was a beautifully drawn Pineapple salad on the table....instead of the camera showing both of them,  it actually locked onto the Pineapple salad for like 10 seconds. Whatever is that supposed to mean..

     

    Excellent, ths raises my excitement to see it, hopefully we'll get another subtitled blu-ray release.

    Knowing how much I scrutinized Peter Jackson's interpretation of The Lord of the Rings and how critical I was of The Hobbit, I'm glad that I'm watching The Expanse before reading the published novels. Last season didn't ruffle my feathers too much. The only thing that felt odd was the obvious change in direction that the writers implemented when they had to strike Alex Kamal's character from team Rocinante due to the scandal that popped up around the actor. I'll have to wait to read the books to see where Alex ends up there. In the TV universe, his part of the story is over.

    When did shows get so afraid of recasting?

    Got this to finally work now so let me try and answer some questions based on what i understood:

     

    - The main enemy is Heimdall(spelling?), with tech from Epsilon, who is trying to overthrow Lady M since they believe Lady M has been the person controlling the whole galaxy from the background.
    - The SV-303 is a Ghost that is controlled by the Fold Wave of the Siren Delta System.  Instead of micro missiles, the SV-303 is able to send out micro Ghosts. Since Heimdall is sponsored by Epsilon, it is very safe to assume it is Epsilon tech(just like SV-262).
    - The Siren Delta system itself is a next gen version of Sharon Apple combined with the DNA of the Star Singer(which was stolen by the rogue NUNS person, who defected to Epsilon) in baby form. After experiencing Walkure's concert first hand, it created Yami Q Ray as a counter.
    - The mecha looking exoskeleton thingy was disguised as a NUNS engineer, most probably Epsilon tech, that Heimdall sent to intrude in Macross Gigasion. It basically broke Arad and left him out of duty for the rest of the movie.
    - The orange gray Ghost we see in one of the trailers are called Hyper Ghost, and is part of Macross Gigasion's arsenal. In the final battle after Hayate purged his armor(leaving only the back cannon), it gattai-ed with the 31AX ala Lil'Drakkens to provide extra firepower.

    I understand Japanese but not all their Fold tech mumbo jumbo so take this with some grain of salt
    - From what I understood Lady M created and has been communicating with Xaos with some Fold wave communication that is encoded. This communication was intercepted by Heimdall and that's why they are able to find the location of the Megaroad-1 and Macross Gigasion.
    - Basically using Siren Delta System combined with the power of the Protoculture ruins of the Brisingr cluster, Heimdall planned to Fold the Megaroad-1 right in front of it and blast it away with the Battle Astrea's cannons.


     

     

    Ok, well I'm in this deep so!

    Spoiler

    - What's the resolution? Bad guy corp captured or killed?

    - Does the sexy new Yami-Q-Ray A.I. survive?

    - Does anyone think to steal/save the badguy tech to retrieve the Megaroad?

    - Just how much screen time does Max have?

    As I see it, regardless of how one sees the Lady M faction (I really need to re-watch Delta), the biggest question introduced is:

    Spoiler

    Why would the Megaroad have any influence over anything while trapped in the deepest darkest fold fault? If they can't get out, and assuredly no one else can get in, that puts the ship (is it trapped with its escort fleet too?) in a serious limited resource situation. Even farming on the ship(s), it's still an issue of entropy. But, how the hell would they fund anything in the galaxy proper? Are they somehow trading on the intergalactic stock market with the crews pensions & Minmay royalties? Why would anyone on the outside trust that they are who they say they are, and assumedly eventually go on to fund Xaos on credit?

    No my friends, I do not buy this, clearly:

    Spoiler

    The Megaroad is lost, and the galaxy is being exploited by Protoculture remnants impersonating the Megaroad fleet (I'm only 30% serious here...).
