  1. I don't know why, but I just read this and felt like if I had been hit on the gut, even though I've known it was a suicide for years. RIP, Arihiro Hase.
  2. Mmm... Old United Nations = Earth as seat of government + Colonies New United Nations = All known human/zentraedi/zolan/etc. planets and colonization fleets are independent but joined under a federation, European Union style? Well, that certainly would have been enough of a political change to warrant a name change.
  3. Yes, they could, but I bet that those guys at HG would throw a fit and try to do some legal action. They would lose, but the battle would be long and tiresome, and in the meanwhile, all the freshness of Macross Frontier (which might be renamed Frontier or something because HG does own the trademark here, IIRC) would pass, which I guess wouldn't be good for sales.
  4. I was surprised, I can't believe that in the battle everything Macross had come together. Of course, I imagine that there are no shots with other VFs besides SMS's due to them being military providers, and is the military the one that handles the entire battle, while SMS brings support on a specific objective. Correct me if I'm wrong. I get this impression because during the attack, next to the Quarter Pounder you could only see the SMS fighters but not NUNS fighters. Besides, like in other Macross series, they don't give too much explanations during and after the battle. Yours, Aegis Focker. PS.: Tanques.
  5. Two words: Battlestar Galactica (and Battlestar Pegasus, while we're at it). CG, when properly done (that is, with the right budget to provide a very detailed mesh and texture), can very appropriately match physical models.
  6. And I so, so, so love that movie. ... $50 on Jackie Chan. Drunken master FOR TEH WIN!!!
  7. Basically Satelight got the shaft there when the project creator and original director bailed on them but they had to push on because of contractual obligations. To minimize loses, they subcontracted the animation to Korea or China or something. They are remaking it, or at least reanimating it, though. However, if you want to see anything else by Satelight, go check Arjuna, Aquarion, Macross Zero, or even some parts of Metropolis. When they have the budget, they kick ass. And even when they don't they still do, like so far in Macross Frontier.
  8. I can live with the misdrawings most of the time. After all, we have been curated on Animefriend/StarPRO (IIRC) before, even in episodes as important as Virgin Road. However, the thing that really disappointed me was the direction of Sheryl's concert, which was probably forced by the lack of abilities of the animators itself. After thoroughly enjoying every single singing scene in this series (from Sheryl's stage extravaganza to Ranka's observatory jam, or even their duet the first time we hear Diamond Crevasse, all have been extremely well done), the Bye Bye Sheryl concert just... fell short. Too plain of a scene for the situation they're in, the meaning of the song, and Sheryl herself, and not in a "simple subtle Edward James Olmos in BSG style scene" but in a "I can't act, so here's my Steven Segal face" kind of plain; specially when contrasted with the superb CG shots of Satelight during the montage. I hope that if they can redraw only one scene in this episode, they redo this. It would really make up for all the suffering for the rest of the episode.
  9. ... that was frakking awesome. I'm so getting my best friend and her band to perform it in one of their concerts. They even remixed in Diamond Crevasse!
  10. Didn't HG enter the game after DYRL was already in production?
  11. God, The Legend of Megaroad! Now that's what I call quality fan fiction (along with Eva based Strike Fiss's Higher Learning, the only two anime fan fics I really think the studios should buy from the writers and animate). Interesting new characters, plausible drama for old characters, there is an actual sense of desperation in the entire story - and the author is not afraid to kill, sometimes in a passing line during a battle, just like that, characters he's been developing for hundreds of pages. Too bad it hasn't been updated in years, it's halfway through the second book out of three. Maybe I should start a petition.
  12. Glen Angus CG Portfolio <- Home of the entire Victory Gal series. My personal favorites are the Zero and the Spitfire. Be sure to check out his memorial at CG Society, too. He truly was a great guy.
  13. Just saw the episode at Scifi.com, it will be broadcasting hourly 'till 4pm EST if you haven't seen it yet. Three things, vague enough not to spoiler anyone. Zarek's back, and he's still the master pimp. Hope to see a lot more of him this season Cally's psycho. Ok, I know we knew that already, but she's clinically psycho. Like, for real. Cottle said so (by the way, he's back too, and he's still a badass). Boomer is in DEEP poo. As Jacob at Television Without Pity would say, "Welcome the frak back to Battlestar Galactica."
  14. I second the motion for naked VFGirl cosplayers doing the nyan nyan. Add a Sheryl cosplayer and I'll name my child after you (at least till Polidread the Fifth; after that, depends of how hot Sheryl was).
  15. (Based ONLY on what I've seen in the preview, so I don't even know if it could be counted as spoiler) OMG! THEY KILLED CALLY!!!
  16. Wolfx... if my children grow up with mental problems due to their mentally disturbed father, I will hold you responsible. DAMN!
  17. Just for the kicks, and since I don't think Garoquel will be posting any more warbirds here any time soon, here's a P-40 by the great late Glen Angus, from his Victory Gals Series.
  18. True, but Tomcats still. Anyway, weren't those supposed to be reengined with some russian engines, or at least there were plans to do something like that? (I'd love to see what a F-14 powered by a pair of Lyulka Saturn AL-37F could do)
  19. Either that, or the name is Mikhail Buran and Kawamori is doing a double aerospace homage to both Mikhail Gurevich (the G in MiG) and the Soviet Space Shuttle Buran. It wouldn't be the first time he honours an aeroplane designer. Besides, Buran means Blizzard in Russian, and that's so much cooler than just... brown...
  20. The Hackintosh road is hard and long, but it is worth it. Good luck. (Then again, if you really want to do this, better shape up those computer skills, for this might very well kill your computer if done wrong.)
  21. Well, after the roll out of the Nyanroll, it was only a matter of time... And even if it was already posted somewhere, I'll post it because it's made of awesome and win
  22. 'Cause even a little character development is important?
  23. THEY ARE REMAKING BILL AND TED??? Forgive my caps, but... holy crap...
  24. I liked it, but I liked Deculture way better. Probably gonna make a fanedit of this as soon as there is a subbed version available.
