  1. Funny, I interpret it as it telling us to finally "let it go", which to me is what Bilrer seemed to do at the end when he closes the locket with a soft sigh.
  2. You've still got a thing or two to learn about transcribing Japanese if you're dismissing chord as a potential match for "koodo", based solely on the lack of an r which would then come with another vowel to mess up the pronounciation.
  3. Interesting. I'd wager the 劇場版記念機体 (theatrical feature anniversary machine) and 劇場版公開機体 (theatrical feature opening machine) are probably just going be some minorly redesigned, different paint job type releases (Like with DYRL?), but the third シークレット (secret), definately feels like it could be something entirely new. Wasn't there some public interview at an event or similiar some months ago, where Alto's VA said to Kawamori that the movie ought to introduce something like a VF-29, to which Kawamori cryptically replied that he might be surprised at what he's going to be flying in the movie? Anyone else have a memory of something like that?
  4. look harder, they've been posted at least twice in other threads
  5. ... I could do it. I wouldn't be able to get to it right away though, but at the start of next month.
  6. I can just picture that bad boy on the next cover of the Chronicle
  7. It's arguably the coolest line in the show after all.
  8. Well no, including the Quarter (in the spine area) would have meant that Alto's VF would have to go, simply no room for anything more than one object there. That would meaning removing the main 'hero mech' of the show from the picture, and that's a big no-no. So it's a no go right there. Even so I would have perhaps liked such a version more (despite what my username and avatar might indicate), it'd capture the moment before the last episode in what potentially looked like a three way situation, each side symbolized by their own 'macross'... At any rate, I don't dislike it as it is by any stretch. Not even sure what I'm trying to argue here.
  9. They're scans of the box that shipped with the first pressing of the DVD/Bluray of Frontier volume 9. The part in the middle would be the spine of the box where we have Alto's VF-25 posing with Michels sniper gun pod. Quite nice but I wonder why they didn't go with the Quarter? It's rather absent
  10. Hughes was always 'Ali' (Fujiwara) though. No change means everything feels as it should be. I guess I just identify Okawa as Mustang more than other character, so a non-Okawa Mustang feels kind of off. Miki's Mustang isn't bad but Okawa left big shoes for him to fill. Given how things transpire in the story Hughes wont be nearly as as Ali.
  11. That's some ambition there! Classical Japanese scares me, though I've admittedly never done a focused attempt at learning it. My strenghts have always been listening and dialouge, which of course are of little use there. My limited exposure to last century material (or seeing as we're nearly a decade into the 2000's, last last century) felt difficult enough, and Genji in comparison is a millenium old. I wish you good luck!
  12. Second episode aired... They decided to cover a lot of ground in this one. Guess they're trying not to focus too much on the first parts of the story, before the old anime completely veered off from the manga (though it did admittedly sport big differences right from the getgo), and get to the completely unanimated stuff sooner than later. As for voice acting changes, Grace O'Connor as Lust was a nice move, but the loss of Jeffery Wilder as Roy Mustang hurt. Oh well hopefully I can grow accustomed to hearing "Lockon" instead. Other changes didn't really produce any reaction in me.
  13. In 7 it was established that DYRL was also a movie within the SDFM timeline universe as well, so that's why DYRL, the song, is known by everyone there too. I do seem to recall that the in-universe version of DYRL was somehow different from ours though. Anyway, plus, 7, and Frontier are all in the SDFM timeline.
  14. The third distinct voice is Sakamoto Maaya, who voices Ranka's mother. In universe, I figured it was the Vajra who sang, kind of like in ep 14. Of course that's technically after the final battle... until then its all Ranka and Sheryl
  15. Hate to burst anyone's bubble, but there was no direct statement that a VF-28 was supposedly gonna appear in the movie. "'I'll take the liberty to say this from the male audience pont of view, but wouldn't it be alright if a VF-28 or something were to appear?' Nakamura said, conveying a request for mecha. And when he did, Kawamori gave a suggestive response 'You might fly in something unexpected.'" So kawamori is hinting that there might be something new.
  16. It's "shizen" Anyway, seems my hunch was right, woot.
  17. Though I have not seen the original japanese, but perhaps its meant to say "Nature restoration plan" or something similiar? Ie, restoring the earth's ecosystem. Of course, I seem to recall that the ship that Kamjin repaired had crashed in some thriving jungle, so that was perhaps never so much of an issue... but Hikaru was reacting to seeing flowers in that one episode...
  18. Don't think such a CD exists. Only other past macross songs she's sung are the ones that were actually used within Frontier itself. The single Tenshi no e no gu came from, only has that, the other songs non macross related.
  19. Probably not since the single it came on was released last wednesday.
  20. The first press extra on volume 7 was those 3 pictures
  21. *leeches in the background* Oh please do go ahead, good sir.
  22. Complete set with english subtitles, eh? Means it's a bootleg. As for why the the subtitles don't show, no idea. Perhaps they're not encoded properly? I think there was a thread discussing malaysian set with subtitles.. perhaps you got that one? Anyway this is the news thread.
  23. So, were you joking, or asking that seriously? Edit: Just in case, B-side refers to a song on a single that's not the main song, the main one being called the A-side. This way of calling it comes from the days of records when the songs were indeed recorded on different sides of the record. As far as I know not unique to Japan.
