Couple notes:

-Keyhole TV and TVU Player neat little programs for watching Japanese (or international) programming streamed live. Yes, LIVE. You can watch your favorite anime (like Macross Frontier), drama, or variety show as it airs in Japan (or in some other country).

A few things though, video and audio can be choppy depending on your net connection (faster is better) and whoever is streaming the video. These factors are things we, as users, may not have much control over. If you want quality and HD goodness, wait for the raws to show up. wolfx has started a thread for Keyhole TV here. If you have any problems with Keyhole or TVU Player, please post in that thread. Episode discussion goes in the episode discussion threads. Issues with Keyhole or TVU go in that thread.

-Please remember to use spoiler tags for the first 12 hours. Not everyone can watch it live and good raws may take a while (as we saw with episode 7).

-I will only list the last 5 or 6 episode threads. Unfortunately, we do have to move on. If you are looking for an previous episode thread, just follow the links in the first post and you will find the appropriate thread.

Found it on Keyhole, am watching now, thanks Morpheus. EDIT: Thanks to Wolfx too, I forgot you provided the program, I'm getting people mixed up, lol.

Its a... carrot song... well, they never said what kind of song work Vector Stone company did I guess.

It would seem this episode, rather than ep.5 is the anime version of manga chap. 3 (or is it 4?). I wonder if we'll see the VF-1J? Well... just have to wait and see I guess, heheh.

Edit... nevermind... saw it after some commercials... at least we'll have some action next week.

The VF-1 is in hikaru's DYRL colors!

Yeah I noticed that too, but it just sits there, no VF-1 flying in the anime. From the looks of the preview for ep.9 we will see some action again next week, looking forward to that. Also looks like Ranka will me meeting our mystery Brera Stern seeing as he showed himself at the end of todays ep. That harmonica must be his signature thing.

When I saw that second image during the show I had to think, what is Luca imagining, Alto's punishment or something worse?

This episode is refreshing somehow, even when

the animation quality took a free dive lol.

Ok, got to sleep now, I'm waiting for the HD raw in the morning, and probably over 10 pages on this thread :lol:

This episode was pretty much a filler, but I can let it go. It did show us that

Ranka is now at Mihoshi and Sheryl can never be allowed to touch X-Gear. And it set up that Ranka and Brera Stern will be knowing eachother

I don't think anyone can argue in this case.... clear as day.

Yeh well, the budget was spent on episode 7. Quit ya whining. :lol:

Plenty of side boob this week. I sense nothing but jokes and innuendo in this week's discussion

Graham can. :lol:

I didn't like how they

depicted Sheryl like she was such a dumb blonde this episode. Sigh.

:(

And looks like Brera might play the role of "mysterious transfer student"

Klan apparently gets injured and shot by a VF-27 next ep.

Great, I can just imagine the nitpickers talking about nothing but the animation quality this week. <_< *sigh*

YAY!!! Chibi-Klan looks good in the next episode!! :D

Perhaps we should steer the conversation into talking about the next episode preview :rolleyes: . Then we avoid hearing why the animation wasn't very good this time.

Maybe we should call her "Yoyo Klan", considering this is the second time in less than 10 eps she will have shrunk herself... :rolleyes:

Of course, everyone who complains about animation quality have to show that they can draw 36000 frames in one week and that every single one is perfect in every way.

Yes... that sounds like a good compromise indeed.

Most likely, for ep.7 we didn't get a good raw until Friday (USA time) after the episode was re-aired. So we may have to wait till tomorrow to get a good copy.

Ah... the wait begins again... looks like its gonna be a while for the raws to pop up again. The guys who were arrested last week were probably responsible for sharing it in the first place.

Not necessarily. They were responsible for a bulk load of anime shows, but the major groups releasing Macross F are still out there.

They may be a bit more careful now and thus not quite so quick to release for fear of drawing undue attention to themselves...

All I see is NicoVideo FLVs of some of the other shows that came on today. Things will probably be slow for the time being. Good thing it was a filler ep this week.

It was a fun episode, a lot like some generic high school drama anime but still fun. I don't see anything wrong with animation, it's a different style but nothing like Aquarion ep 18, Samaurai 7 ep 7 or Gurren Lagann ep 4.

Ranka being ignored by Alto again breaks my heart. T_T
