Funny how the article on the back of the poster in the October 2008 Newtype got missed...

what with it's interview with Shoji Kawamori and Haruhiko Mikimoto AND fun things like "February 2009" and in big bold letters "MACROSS BEGINS".

Funny how that got missed in the scans and mobile phone pictures.

I don't know if it means a new production...February 7, 2009 is when Space War I began in the TV show. It may just be a reference to that.

More data dump. Once again, I apologize for being a bit overworked to translate everything. If I have time I'll do some more as time permits. But feel free to take a stab at it in the meantime. More Kawamori interview stuff and female seiyuu (for both Ranka and Sheryl) interview summary thanks to the lads at 2ch.

Highlight is the interviews of Megumi and Aya on Ranka and Sheryl. If you read about what they said about their character's desires at the end..... speculations, speculations, speculations. :rolleyes:

女性声優メッセージ一部抜粋 (Partial summary of female seiyuu)

(also from Animedia)

まめぐのメッセージが若干意味深にも…

(Megumi's answers seems to have some deep inferences)

遠藤綾は本当にシェリルが好きなんだなあという感じ

(It feels like Endo Aya really likes Sheryl's character)

Ranka (Nakajima):

クライマックスのランカはどうなってほしい!?

ただただ幸せになってほしい。これ以上傷つけ合う姿は見たくないですね

自分自身も、周りの人のことも、大切にしてほしいです。

At the climax, what does Ranka want?

She wants everyone to be happy, not to hurt each other anymore.

For herself, for those around her, that's her wish.

その願望、実際にランカは叶えられそう?

ランカは愛情に満ち溢れている子なんですが、それが自己中心的な行動につながったりしていました。

これから愛情表現も成長していくことができれば、幸せに近づけると思います。

あとはやっぱり…自分の本当の「歌」、本当の気持ちを見つけてくれると信じます。

誰かに伝えたいことがあれば、どうぞ!

シェリルさんにも幸せを掴んでほしいですね。歌手としても女の子としても。

アルト君には…見極めてほしいですね、色々と。

ブレラさん、これからもランカを支えてあげて下さい!

Sheryl (Endo):

クライマックスのシェリルはどうなってほしい!?

やっぱり女の子なので、好きな人とずっといてほしいな。

格好良いシェリルも好きだけど、ほっぺが赤くなるシェリルも好きなので…。

At the climax, what does Sheryl want?

Of course, to be with her love forever.

I love it when she's acting cool, but I also love it when she turns all red...

その願望、実際にシェリルは叶えられそう?

でもシェリルはシェリルだから、歌わずにはいられない。いろんな逆境も歌声に乗せて暴れそう。

そして、「あたしはシェリル、シェリル・ノームよ!」と鞭をひっぱたいてそう。

誰かに伝えたいことがあれば、どうぞ!

アルトへ…

8話かなあ。シェリルを抱えて飛んだ時の「なんだそれ」という台詞が愛に溢れていた気がするんでが!

ランカちゃんへ…

ランカちゃんがいなかったら気付かなかったことがいっぱい!似てないようで似てたね。

I'd still love a season 2 of Frontier though.

That would be nice, but may be a tie in from Macross Galaxy, I am a bit disappointed with what they've shown on Galaxy so far, there isn't enough filler for that part of the show. That's something they need.

Hell, if they can do 50 episodes of crap like GSD, I hope they can do a second season of Macross

Considering some of what's happening in Code Geass, maybe it's best to wait and rethink that second season.

Agreed. I'm not too big a fan for a sequel, too. <_< If there's going to have a Macross show next year, I hope it will be something new.

And again, regarding Macross Galaxy, I think patience is the key. Let's wait for at least next episode before we all scream 'what about Galaxy!!!!'

Luckily no official source has talked about a second season up to now :rolleyes:

Instead of that, an OVA/movie where Alto chooses the girl he hasn't chosen in the series would be good :lol:

Regarding Galaxy, I'm kinda wondering what people expect to be revealed? Through Grace we already know most of the pertinent information. We know their immediate goals, and enough to infer their long-term goals. All we need to know about who they are could be taken care of in a couple minutes

when Galaxy appears to join in the battle over the Vajra homeworld

, beyond that would be akin to demanding to know Leon's favourite cereal, and where he went to highschool.

I really doubt a second season of Frontier will materialize. Another new Macross next year? Possibly. Almost likely with the popularity Frontier has enjoyed, but a second season? I don't expect there will be enough loose ends left for one to run with.

I don't like prequels.... as much as I would like a second season, if it wasn't plan then the thing would just drag on with no proper plot

I think the best bet are OVA's of a new breed of renegade Galaxy type anarchist cyborg enhanced full grown zentradi on a plan to overthrow the UN Spacy and bring back the goold old days of the Zentradi...

I don't know what they could put in a second season. People say Galaxy VS Frontier but looks like it could happen on the final episode.

Nothing is better, than dragging the plot just because of the recent success. Code Geass is the perfect example.

If one of the three main character dies, you can say bye bye to a second season. If Ranka dies this is not a bye bye anymore like in episode 6 but Goodbye to another season.

Most of all, if this is Sheryl who dies ,with a second season , Macross will encountered his biggest turkey in his story.

But I think Ranka has highest chance than Sheryl to buy the farm at the end ,because Kawamori would not want to put a charm and buy a bulletproof vest :lol:

I've said this before but I'd like to see a prequel OVA of Frontier showing the events of the 117th research fleet, the first encounter of the Vajra, Ozma as a young rookie pilot, and his relationship with Cathy.

I'm still waiting for them to reanimate the original series...

If they reanimated the original series using the DYRL designs and quality, I'd be more than satisfied!

It would also rule if Hikaru was plausibly less oblivious

I mean, he is such an idiot and soooo oblivious in the TV series, it blows me away how he gets away with it.

I think I would want the original audio tracks used. I wouldn't want them straying off course and really screwing it up. I am talking shot for shot, here. Designs looking the same, that sorta thing.

No, no and no!

As much as I love the original series, I don't want them to repeat what's been done before.

IMO, there's no need to remake everything, just cus' it's a couple of decades old.

I could not agree more, if they are doing sequel or Frontier OVA, it should well plan out. Hell it is another opportunity for Bandai to churn out toys - VF-25F Ova version :lol: !

I personally prefer that they re-introduce the Galaxy fleet and resolve the series with them with atleast two episodes but the spoilers haven't given anything like that away or even on the last episode so I'm willing to give the series the benefit of doubt and watch the story reveal itself the way the writers want it to.

As for remaking the old series, there really is no need unless they tell it from a different angle or even focus on different characters.

In other words, bring on the Destroids: SDF's Cannonfodder...

No for remake of original and second season of Frontier. No remake since I like it as it is, a treasured classic anime.

No for Frontier second season since I'm afraid it will be terrible just like all mecha anime who got second season (Seed Destiny, Code Geass R2, and probably Gundam 0.0 too).

I prefer to wait several years (or several century) for another quality Macross series.

Regarding remakes: if they're going to remake anything, they'll do it as a 3 part movie version. Since SDF:M has DYRL, I highly doubt that we'll see any more remakes.

A second season of Macross Frontier? That is possible, but my impression is that there won't be. A new series? time will tell.

The Macross franchise is a cash cow (thats why HG is harping on it), a new Macross series would come out. Question is how long do we have to wait ? I hope not another 25 years !

Reminds me of Episode 12 of Frontier... ^_^

First, HG is "harping" in The Super Dimension Fortress Macross only (The Macross franchise is bigger than that)...

Second, Macross 7 was broadcasted from 1994 to 1995...

So it took 13 years actually...

:rolleyes:
