  1. Wait...what was the Nanashi debacle? Was that when someone wanted to use his scans, and he didn't want them to...? I remember a lot of people getting mixed up in that one.

    As far as I remember (I was out during most of it, so I pretty much only caught the aftershocks), it was something like if Mr March had gone fulltime batshite loco overzealous of his work at the M3 cleaning up and restoring the scans for his site. Nanashi's idea was that since he had spent so much time and money hunting down those scans and their sources and photoshopping them so they will look good, he owned the images and no one else could use them (or even have them in their hard drives - his site was programmed so people couldn't right click anything in there) and he kind of tried to enforce a copyright on them. The only problem was that those images were already Big West's properties and, therefore, he could make no claim about the use and abuse of them (because, hell, this is the internet, and what one dude can encrypt another can crack, so people were posting his images here and there) and a lot of people in the forum reminded him of that. He didn't like that concept and hilarity ensued (not really).

    Somebody correct me if I'm wrong.

  2. Been digging the old forum, and finally found one :lol:

    This is MW treasure.

    edit: removed the second pic of Millia and Yoshinol since kinda NSFW

    Ahhh, Yoshi and Beware of Blast. I wonder where they are now.

    Vostok 7, the Lil' Valk comics, AgentOne's doorknobs and "bang anus please" (good thing he's back, dammit).

    The Nanashi debacle. Edo Andromedo C. WM Cheng's LEGENDARY threads back then when the Hasegawas just came out (some things never change, thanksfully).

    All those little things that are part of the History of Macross World

    ... dammit kids, you just gave this long time mostly-lurker member a bout of nostalgia.

  3. Why do you need a Sheryl version when you've got Bobby's...? :lol:

    And where can one find a decent recording of the GARby version of it? The youtube version's audio quality SUCKS, and I'm actually willing to pay for that song and Sheryl's enka (I would have done that already - if the announcement of it on the Macross F webpage had a link for the japanese impaired to go straight to wherever they have to go to leave their credit card number <_< )

  4. DVD 1 is ready

    Tomorrow I'll have the patch done, I hope xD

    Some Screenshots attached

    And you have no idea how much I've been waiting for someone to come out with something like this. I tried to watch Macross 7 at least twice before, but I could never get far with the ASS releases on the old days - I couldn't live with those subtitles. To have it now, remastered, with a proper sub job... well, a la tercera la vencida. Third time's the charm, and I plan to watch it to the end, even if it hurts. Thanks a lot, Xeros, en serio, muchas gracias.

  5. As for Bebop, I can't say I never got past the first couple episodes. Also I've read some Jazz critics saying that Yoko Kanno borrowed her Jazz arrangements (none of which really fall into Bebop) from other sources. So I don't consider it her finest achievement, musically either.

    I wasn't really talking about bringing Kanno to the film or even using her music there. What I meant is that the music itself and its variety, regardless of the sources, genre (Live in Baghdad, Autumn in Ganymede or Pushing the Sky are not particularly jazzy) or even quality are as much a part of the whole Cowboy Bebop atmosphere on itself as the Mandarin slang and Hanzi in Firefly. But, being this a Fox production, chances are that they are going to totally ignore this and go for a run of the mill Hans Zimmer style score with country music and rock ballads sparkled here and there (which would work for other movies, but not Bebop).

  6. Oh, one more thing. The most confusing spelling I've ever seen concerns her last name. At least a handfull of groups have depicted it as "Linn". I assume this has to do with Chinese romanizations again? I don't believe there's ever been any artwork to support such a spelling, and it just looks odd.

    Good luck sorting that out. As far as I know, the name was supposed to be Ling Mingmei (Líng Míngměi, 鈴明美), "Bright and beautiful bell" in Chinese, which is quite appropriate. But then, the guys in China localized the name as Lin Mingmei (Lín Míngměi, 林明美), "Bright and beautiful woods." Both of them are rendered Rin Minmei in katakana. Neither Linn nor Lynn are standard romanizations for Japanese nor Chinese.

    I just take it as stylization. Like in the company Mazda actually being Matsuda in Japan - only that the founder thought it would be cooler to romanize it as Mazda, after Ahura Mazda and all those things.

  7. Well, if you have seen Machine Girl, then you know that school girl in uniform is deadlier than a stormtrooper ^_^

    Dude, an Ewok is deadlier than a stormtrooper... :unsure:

    And I'm rooting for the soviets in this one. Nothing like a cannon launched parachuting bear commando platoon falling on top of your troops to mess up your day. :wub:

    (Why is it that I have this feeling that those guys at 4chan will LOVE this game?)

  8. I guess it serves its purpose as a campaign song. but the new version doesn't hold anything to the original, IMHO. and besides that.... when it comes to writing lyrics, Grace is way too cheesy! It's like a super robot theme song composer hi-jacked kanno yoko's lyrics. hehe. :p

    It is the Macross Frontier's version of 'We will win!' :ph34r:

    (Which, I don't know why, strikes me as completely appropriate.)

  9. First skinjob/first scare idea could be cool, but I don't know how they are going to make this all fit into the mythological stuff they are building for Galactica itself (then again, who knows how they are going to pull the "divine robots" thing off, so they might tie it all together, somehow). If it turns out to be lame... well, screw this shite, I'm gonna start writing fanfiction :ph34r:

  10. "... the ability to build a world that’s iconically American in its Western nature - I don’t think so at all.”

    [facepalm] Dude, this ain't Firefly, and if you haven't noticed, both of them were going for either an utterly cosmopolitan or Chinese vibe. [/facepalm]

    Anyway, I hope they at least bring the musical variety over and don't settle for country/rock ballads/orchestration. Half of Bebop's slickness was the music after all, and I would love to see that kind of soundtrack experimentation on a commercial film.


    but then again, this is FOX, so, whatever.

  11. I also used to think that what we've got is as good as it's going to get. But on the Bonus disc, Bandai's got remastered intros/closings for SDF and the pilot. It looks incredible and blows away all other SDF intros/closings to date. I'm guessing that this is just a teaser for whatever Bandai's got coming down the pipeline.

    Compare the CF Valkyries in the background of these screenshots. B))

    Screw the Valkyries, you can actually see stars on the background! :ph34r:

  12. welll...nico it's in jap, cor, esp & ger...i speak esp so can view the site and donwload the vid and re-up to tube's ... any case, i don't have in my near-future plans to learn jap so i think you're right...

    Damn, I guess being a native Spanish speaker had to be useful for something :p

    (and I can even register with my home country in Niconico! right on!)
