  1. This lines up with what Kawamori has stated about the overall timeline, everything is an in-universe fictionalization of a in-universe event. So I amend my theory to say that the curator of the in-universe Macross Museum in 2059 had been already familiar with the future events when he was younger, and advised the production staff of what the general outline of the plot of Macross II should be in the 2040s. I think the general population believed it to be speculative fiction, until he revealed in 2059 that it actually will happen.
  2. Yes, that would make sense. I also suggest that the same production company that produced Macross II made DYRL. And being part of a multi media corporation with a subsidiary that produced the Macross 2036 video games in-universe.
  3. What im theorizing is that its a fictional account, of a future event, made with knowledge gained from time travel
  4. I offer my theory on the canon status of Macross II. I believe it is a piece of in universe fiction produced before 2059 and shown to the public at the Macross Museum. The curator of the museum was able to collect information from the distant past and near future to make his displays. Probably using some form of time travel similar to what was shown in the Macross 30 game. I speculate that he had little control over the people he was able to interview, some may be unreliable witnesses. And further errors may have occurred in production, as was seen in Macross Zero sequence from Frontier. So that the Macross 2 OVA we all saw does not accurately depict what actually happens in the prime timeline. The other possibility is that drastic extinction level events alter the galaxy so much that humanity has to restart from earth and develop exactly as shown in the OVA. Tech is lost and alien races disappear. What do you all think would allow Macross II to fit seamlessly into the prime canon timeline?
  5. I live in Amagasaki, right next to Osaka, I would be delighted to show you around. PM if interested in a tour.
  6. I saw one for sale at Mandarake a few years back when I was broke and couldn't afford it.
  7. I was looking through the legacy page for bandai toys, and noticed that one was missing. Does anyone have it? Or information on where it was sold?
  8. Well, according to the official timeline, Mac-II takes place a couple decades after Delta
  9. One of the few Southern Cross items I’ve seen for sale recently in Japan was a unofficial fan doujinshi and it only went for ¥210 in resale shop
  10. lots of comments about eyes too big
  11. Yes, I believe that was a 3minute digest of one of the rehearsal runs that was used to promote the show.
  12. I could see everyone in the audience. no one had a video camera
  13. I went to see this, and also wanted a video recording. But it bombed so badly they have not released any supporting merchandise afterwards. The only additional material I have found is fan made doujinshi.
  14. BomBAR this Saturday!


  15. Sure, but I work late on Friday so it has to be Saturday or Sunday
  16. The established pattern for Macross movies, since DYRL is to be a parallel world story. A chance to do things that were cut due to budget reasons(like multiple quarters in Frontier), and to streamline the story. And, for Bandai to demand a new more powerful Valkyrie to be made so they can have an exclusive license to sell it.
  17. This is a fairly typical reaction, as far as I`ve seen. Several other news and variety shows have done similar man on the street interviews asking people what they thought about Scarlet Johansen playing the part of the Motoko Kusanagi. For young people not overly familiar with the source material, they are mostly positive in those interviews. I work in a factory in Japan, so I have a lot of coworkers in the 30-40 year old range that are mecha and anime fans. I asked around, and the reactions were mostly positive. The one negative, was from an older fan, who followed the original manga. He was upset that it looked too much like the anime, both movie and series. He considers those to be unfaithful to the original manga. But he was fine with Scarlet Johansen playing the part of Motoko Kusanagi.
  18. like most things at Comic Market, it is self published by a fan, if putting some xerox copies in a ziploc bag could be called "publishing" He goes by the circle name Company.
  19. From Comic Market 91 by Kurobousidan circle
  20. Here is an interesting item I found at the recent Comic Market 91. It is an expansion for a fan made table top pen and paper tank battle simulation called "Tankhunter". This expansion adds Mecha from Macross, but also borrows some units from Southern Cross and Megazone 23, but renames some them to fit in the Macross universe. The artwork is also borrowed from various Robotech sources.
  21. just curious, how much was the monster selling for at MWC?
