The silhouette of the new fighter looks a lot like the SV-51 with boosters. It's probably an anti-NUNs fighters just like the SV-51 was a anti UN fighter.

I'm thinking it's the VF-27, however I wonder if it's not the new frontline fighter for existing colony worlds like Eden. Whereas the VF-25 is destined for the UNG worlds.

I really wonder if that posting in the Japanese wiki about a cold war is more than just speculation and possibly a leak. The same thing was apparently posted in the French Frontier wiki and with a French animator working on the show, anything is possible...

That purple is the color of baddies in Macross doesn't help, however spoilers seem to suggest there will be probably more than that.

FV

I was thinking SV-51 - especially with those canards on the front. Its not a modified YF-19 is it. (I will get howled down on this one for sure). Isamu???

The transformation of the VF-27 as seen in the Macross TV special seemed to suggest it has a similar design to the VF-25. I could be wrong, though, just going by memory.

I really hope this VF-27 is not directly related to the Vajra, that would steal all the fun of finally having a Gunbuster-like archenemy in the show (PC related maybe). It would be fun to have 3-sided conflict though, some sort of Colony/Fleet/Corporation dispute i.e. VF-25 vs VF-27 vs Vajra.

You are preaching to the choir buddy... B))

A three sided conflict would also be something that hasn't been done in a Macross show since DYRL...

If by that you mean no one could be bothered to stay at home and up to watch it, I guess that's as good a reason as any other. Looking at the numbers of the other series though they all either had moderate climbs or slight drops. Frontier unfortunately is one of few that suffered the larger - 0.5 or more points drop. Uneasy is one word that comes to mind when looking at that.

Hopefully it's just happenstance and things will be better on the next report.

Granted not that will affect the production of Frontier that much since most of the money is to be made on DVDs. Hopefully.

The first season of Geass had some steep drops as well, ratings from 1/5 to 2/16 (second half of the season) were 1.7, 1.7, 2.9, 2.1, 2.4, 2.3 & 1.7. Keep in mind that ratings don't really matter for late night anime shows since it's more a payed advertisement for dvds and other merchandise. It's doing rather well in preorders for dvds and the cd singles are also selling well.

I was just thinking, if there was indeed a VF-27 wouldn't SMS be equipped with it instead? Wouldn't they be the ones testing it instead of having the 27 be a standard military fighter?

Furthermore, why would it be called a VF if it wasn't developed for UN Spacy? It would've been called something else just in the same way that american planes were called F-## while russia used Mig-## or something to that effect.

Ah, I can't wait to see what that plane in the opening is!

BTW, if i remember correctly, the purple guy in the opening seems to be part of the Macross Galaxy defenses in the manga.

Just Curious....What's so special about Michel's Sister? I'm guessing she's dead seeing the memories about her troubles Michel. Could this Jessica person be one of those killed by the Vajra attack where Ozma rescued Ranka from?

:huh:

I like Shun's explanation so much better. All I did was translate whatever that is on that scan.

So much spoilers yet I can't wait to see it when the episode comes out. I'm the kind of person that doesn't mind reading about spoilers because I could block out my memory of ever reading about it in the first place. Therefore spoiler tags doesn't bother me at all. :lol:

Looks like an eventful arc ahead. Thanks Shun! :)

Uhmmm.....if its a homage shouldn't that be Alto saving a female?

:huh: Instead of Alto saving a shota? :rolleyes::ph34r:

BTW, mystery valk reminds me a lot of Nora's and DD's Sv-51s in Macross Zero. Anti-UN??? :mellow:

The VF-27 in battroid mode looks a lot like the VF-25, just pinkish red, with different wings. Thanks for the refresher jpegs Mr. March.

You're welcome. I almost get a Griffon vibe from that head unit on the purple mystery valkyrie (as in, the Griffon from Patlabor). And the back of the feet/top of the engine nozzles is very SV-51-like :)

Yet another Gunbuster homage.

That pink Valk really does look A LOT like the SV-51. The "three toe" foot, the long shoulders, wing shape, chest area, and the tail fins attached to the arms. This series has a lot more connections to Zero as I had thought. *re-watches*

The VF-27 doesn't look Vajra related so definately there is some hope for a three way tango. I mean come on each fleet is so different it is bound to happen, civil war!

I don't imagine the Vajra would name their fighter the VF-27. :lol:

The NUNS are the Terrans, the Vajra are the Zerg, so what kinds of funky energy-based technology will the Anti-UN have?

[throws brick at Morpheus] [/brick fails to hit target] damn, should've used the high-maneuverability bricks...just jk :lol:

I really trying hard not to read all the new spoilers, don't want to ruin the experience for myself. Anyone wonder why they might have released such spoiler up to Ep.10 ?

Standard procedure. For Gundam, we normally had previews for the next 3-4 episodes/magazine/month. In the July editions of the magazines, we'll probably have synopsis for the next 3-4 episodes. It's normal. It basically covers the month's episodes.
