  2. Dear Mr. Sandman, Thank you for explaining to me that Delta being successful is irrelevant. I did not think about the live action Transformer movies. The explanation is so perfect, that I can completely understand why my post had no clear point. Thank you for your psychoanalysis of me. I didn't realize that I wasn't speaking plainly. Rather, I now see that I was driven by some form of self defense in that I treated descriptions of Delta as "crap" or slams against Kawamori as if they were attacks against my personal self. I'll take your suggestion of not reading this thread so that I can avoid suffering further feelings of personal offense. Best Regards, Cordially, Sincerely, and Yours Truly, H.H.
  3. Maybe in a series announcment thread that, for the moment at least, HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH DELTA since we don't even know what it's about, Delta whining is misplaced in this topic. It's distracting off-topic grumbling.
  4. When people use words like: crap, terrible --and then belittle Kawamori, it doesn't exactly make people who feel differently feel welcome here. There are cleaner forms of criticism. Mazinger's pondering of staying off the forums, and a couple other similar sentiments, is indicative of a problem here. A news announcment about a new Macross series shouldn't make MWF remind people of RT boards or encourage people to leave or go into lurk mode. When a post like this is routine, ESPECIALLY in an announcement thread, what's the point in current Macross fans even bothering to come to these forums? As a whole, MWF should be a good steward to the franchise in general. If you aren't getting what you like, think of ways to demonstrate that you're a viable market worth spending resources on and get your voices heard. People who belittle and lash out are a zero economic quantity.
  5. To those who are using this news as an opportunity to complain about Delta, yet still purchase Macross merchandise: Be grateful that they knew how to produce a Macross show that was commercially successful enough to warrant the investment of an entire new series. I was expecting 1-2 movies. Instead, we're getting at least another 13 weeks +post show period of marketing and Macross merchandising. That means more classic Macross goodies sold alongside new designs. To those who are using this news as an opportunity to complain about Delta, but do not purchase Macross merchandise for whatever reason: You're not part of the business and simply not part of the equation. Catering to you is just not financially viable, and businesses have to cater to those who those who vote with their money. If producing a show that is to your liking would induce you to buy official Macross releases, I *sincerely* hope that they produce something that'll get you to join in. To call Delta: stupid, crap, or terrible just denies the reality that Delta was successful enough to bring in 17,000 fans to a Walkure concert. Delta was financially successful. Successful enough for Big West to take their financial winnings and reinvest some of the profit back into Macross. It's okay to say Delta isn't what you wanted, but to use this news as an opening to "crap" on Delta or Kawamori just flies in the face of reality. It's like a room full of old guys complaining about young people.
  6. I finally finished the end of year "ramble" a few days ago. It's really great to hear you guys back together in this format!
  7. Some of you may recall that Gubaba did some translations of a few important works from Macross history. Particularly notable is his translation of Misa Hayase: White Reminiscences. He also translated My Fair Minmay and the Macross Outside Story from Perfect Memory. All of these stories were written near the time of SDFM's production by those who contributed to the show. Personally, I really enjoyed further development of the characters outside of the animation. Now, Gubaba is in the process of translating the novelization for Macross: DYRL. The novel is written by the movie's own scriptwriter! This means that Gubaba's translation effort will again provide further insight into the characters in one of the best anime movies ever made. What makes it more interesting is that the events in the novel, while similar, play out in a different fashion than the movie. Concurrent with his DYRL translation, he is also translating the first Macross Delta novelization. If you haven't read any of his translations, I highly recommend starting with Misa Hayase: White Reminiscences. It's a good read! This story and his earlier translations can be found here: https://gubabablog.wordpress.com/2016/01/21/super-dimension-fortress-macross-suggestions-for-further-reading-and-listening/ His WIP DYRL translation can be found here: https://gubabablog.wordpress.com/category/super-dimension-fortress-macross/ The first chapter to his Delta translation can be found here: https://gubabablog.files.wordpress.com/2016/08/macross-delta-vol-1-chapter-1.pdf
  8. But what about the VF-2JA, the dedicated atmospheric version? It looks basically the same. The wings are so short, and nothing in the undercarriage looks like it'll help with lift. Versus the VF-1, I can't imagine an RC VF-2 take flight.
  9. So, I saw the above clip and was impressed that the VF-1 airframe is perfectly capable of flight. Kawamori's designs, at the very least, look as if they COULD fly. The VF-2JA looks like it would fall like a brick. Even if it could glide like a kite, how the hell would it even turn? It just looks full of drag. I guess the same would apply to the VF-2SS.
  10. So, how much does the propellant weigh, and how much space does it take?
  11. While Delta airs, it would be hilarious if changed your avatar to an angry picture of Bogue, with angry subs included.
  12. This...has nothing to do with that. I heard about the news but didn't know where it came from. It just started to get posted around. Now I know where to find it directly in a link instead of people mentioning it secondhand. I would've make tress exact same reactions regardless of the source. There is no game, there are no "guys," and no need to bring baggage into it.
  13. No offense, I don't really use Twitter, so having a bookmark was pretty handy for making the daily rounds. I've been pretty expressive where it's appropriate, but here I'm just trying to "Macross."
  14. As a poster ever been released for the Scrambled Valkyrie box art?
