  1. That is the point of the thread, Dax415 wants to know how to fit Macross 2 into the canon. That is how he wants to enjoy the show.
  2. I decided to drop the question after that, and talk about legend of the galactic heroes instead. After I get to know him better I might revisit the subject.
  3. its on life support, as a webcomic. no print volume for sale since 2015 also, very little presence in shops when new volumes were sold. And I went to a signing, where barely anyone showed up and I was able to get ticket 1 easily. after some time where he sat at his table with stacks of unsold manga, Mr Mikimoto left early.
  4. Unfortunately the manga bombed badly in Japan, and is not likely to happen
  5. These furoku are exceptionally rare since they were usually built by the kids who bought the magazine, very few exist in collectible form these days.
  6. So far retconing to a in universe fictional account of a historical event, is what they have done for SDFM, DYRL,7,Zero, so I think likely they will do it for II too.
  7. The last time I talked to Mr. Fuso of FANKY企画 was quite some time ago before the COVID stuff. But I specifically asked him if he would be willing to write another Macross Ships dojin featuring other races ships like Meltran or Protoculture. He said he didn't consider the Meltran ships to be real, and had already started work on LOGH book.
  8. They are working on Legend of the Galactic Heroes next, a truly MASSIVE undertaking
  9. Yes, but not the most recent one, I met them when they did their Megazone dojin
  10. unfortunately the next issue is Space Battleship Yamato centric
  11. It is current and in stock in most Dojin stores, also, Vol 11 is out now
  12. 10年以上もパラレルワールドとして紹介されていた本作だが、『マクロスF』終了後の2009年には複数の媒体で『ゼロ』、『超時空要塞マクロス』、『プラス』、『7』、『F』、『II』まで統一された年表が発表されるようになる[7]。 『マクロスエース』vol.001 超時空年表、『マクロスアルティメットフロンティア 超時空娘々パック』パッケージ裏面年表、「マクロス・クロスオーバーライブ」パンフレット「The HISTORY of MACROSS」。 Translation Macross II was considered a parallel world for over 10 years, but in 2009 after the end of "Macross F",a unified timeline including "Zero", "The Super Dimension Fortress Macross", "Plus", "7","F", and "II" will be announced. Sources "Macross Ace" vol.001 Super Dimention Chronology, "Macross Ultimate Frontier Super Dimention Girls Pack" Chronology, "Macross Crossover Live" Pamphlet "The HISTORY of MACROSS". This is where I believe MII switched from being a parallel world, to a fully unified timeline in 2009. As far as Big West is concerned. DeAgostini would later designate it a separate timeline in Macross Chronicle. Kawamori would still publicly describe it as a parallel world, in 2013 at the Macross Museum. So really it can go either way depending on who you consider the the true authority on Macross. Pick whichever one you like better and go with it.
  13. In this case, it may be helpful to divide it into what BigWest considers the status of Macross II, and what Kawamori thinks. I think they are not the same. For Big West they consider it a completely valid part of the main timeline. Kawamori does not agree, and thinks it belongs somewhere else where fewer people can see it.
  14. Yeah, I agree with what you are saying, different words with same conclusion.
  15. When MII was first introduced, it was the official true sequel and actually happened. After Kawamori got back into Macross7 it was retconed to be in universe fiction. At the Macross Museum Kawamori stated that it was a parallel universe. Now, the most current published timelines include MII as actually happening. Puttting this all together, I believe that the MII anime as shown, was created in the M7 era, based on future information obtained by time travel by the staff of the Macross Museum. The actual events have not been shown yet, the Characters, Mecha and locations are all what someone in the M7 era created based on what was probably inaccurate and brief verbal information from an unintentional time traveler.
  16. They had a combined Macross Plus and Seven 25th anniversary festival in Yokohama last year. It included a stage play that showed Basara, Isamu and Freyja meeting each other.
  17. Enough to have a dedicated theme bar for M7. Which was closed due to covid for a while but recently reopened.
  18. Not just that, I used to work as flight deck electician on a LPH, so I am sure the flight deck crew would have to do a FOD check after every shot that takes place on deck.
  19. Sorry for late reply, I am guessing you had to postpone your trip. Once things settle down I recommend visiting Osaka area as well.
  20. Thanks for the heads up. I will be there for sure. Be glad to show anyone else who shows up around town.
  21. One possibility is that fastpack hardpoints are standardized, so that they can quickly be switched without modification. A comment was made in Delta where the lil Drakken was able to be attached to a VF-31 with little modification due to standard mountings. A more drastic example would be Isamus VF-19 using VF-25 fastpacks, in this case some custom work was probably done. A Mayor of a colony could probably afford to have that done as well. edit; how do I remove previous page tags?
  22. Thank you, im missing that one, I will have to pick it up.
  23. Very nice find, which magazine was that?
  24. My understanding is that Isamu spent his life savings to buy his VF-19F/A. And fuel and maintenance for it would be astronomically expensive. So between wars he would need to earn money doing whatever SMS has for him. I do not believe he has matured enough to command a squadron, and I do not think he would want any position that involves responsibility or paperwork. I think he is happiest piloting, anything.
  25. As shown at the 25th anniversary Macross 7&Plus Festival event last week, he is piloting a freighter for SMS. The in universe date was 2067 August He looked exactly the the same as the last time we saw him as they reused animation stills. He still doesn't care about following the rules, as long as he gets the job done. He could be doing other jobs for SMS, thats just what he happened to be doing that day.
