theres something deeply disturbing about ozma in a carrot costume and alto in ranka's clothes...and dont tell me the captian has a miss macross sash and swimsuit on.

Captain Wilder is wearing Ranka's "Neko Nikki" promotional cat-girl outfit (from episode 11).

My favorite is still Ai-kun dressed as Alto's VF-25. ^_^

Apparently a Macross Frontier movie advertisement.

(Sorry I don't have a single image; I happened across it by chance.)

Sorry I quoted the pictures, but I have some notes to point out:

I LOVE carrot-Ozma

I LOVE (Where's Pete's sig when you need it?)'s reaction to Wilder

I LOVE the director looking at the script

Reminds me to post this:

Best part of this by far is sheryl's cleavage. Best cosplay ever!

Yeah, Sheryl looks better in Brera's outfit than Brera ever did.

I could say the same thing about Nanase, but that would just be TOO predictable, wouldn't it?

So instead, I'll mention Cathy. Since her voice actress also voiced Sara Nome, that stands as probably the only "behind-the-scenes" joke in the whole picture.

awwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwwww.......but Cathy looks sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo adorably beautiful as Sarah Nome... come on guys. That's just lovely. She's sooooo hot!!

And - trumpets please - Klan Klan looks amazingly hot in that chinese waitress outfit! She should never return to being a giant, quit her job and go work at Nian Nian! She looks amazing!

And Cathy is just to die for.

I love that poster.

EDIT: And Luca's hair! It's great! They combed it to look like Leon's :) That poster is WIN!

Poor Alto :) Can you imagine any other male anime star character getting this constant "dress him up as a girl" treatment :) It's hilarious :)

Anyways - I mainly like how they mimicked Rei's passive look on Ranka's otherwise expressive, bubbly, full of likfe face. Really great art work there - not just a simple case of "dressing them" differently- but immediately getting the emotions on their faces to match the NGE characters.

But yeah... none of them really "fit" the part :)

Still - fun.

Mylene was gaining my heart until the last picture. I could never imagine what cocaine induced haze had to be the prequil to putting the poor girl into THAT outfit. And to think Honey said nothing about it... tsk tsk....

The swimsuit picture looks like a throw back to Miami Vice or an edited clip of a 70s porn flick.

But the lying in bed pic is good. And for the record, I do like her singing, and there are some scene in Macross 7 where she looks really hot... particularly when she's around Gamlin IIRC...

But that uniform thing is crazy :)

As for the Macross: Frontier pics...

Ranka (on Brera's laps) looks sooooooooo wonderful - in fact - she kind of reminds me of Minmey towards the end of SDFM TV - ...in winter...sitting on that playground swing before being spotted by the loli laundry men and fleeing... very cute. Love the clothes -the classy/classic leather gloves, the checkered skirt, the coat... it all blends together really well - a classy girl.

Sheryl on the other hand AGAIN has those huge boots - which I actually like on women - but in this particular pic Ranka beats her by a mile. Sheryl looks like the hooker you'd pay to have a good time with; Ranka looks like the girl who'd melt your heart and make you give up booze.

Besides - look at poor Alto clearly not happy about the girl-distribution, and Sheryl looks keenly possessive there...

As for Brera - suave :)

And finally - the kimono pic...

For some reason Sheryl looks like somebody's hot mother :) I think it's the "Had ten babies" cleavage as well as the neck shading which seems to give her some age. The hair is also a bit on the "busy mom who DID have her hair done but then had to run around the taking care of kids/chores" look. And the kimono... reminds me of Kaifun's mother - mabye it's just the color.

Alto...what can I say? I guess he's every girl's dream - it's like having a boyfriend and a barby doll all wrapped up in one package.

Ranka just doesn't match.

Her hand looks like the hand of an adult - and also the hand of a woman more like Sheryl. Look at the manicure on that hand. Ranka's too ditsy to have one of those... I understand the Minmey homage MIGHT have prompted it though - but in these kind of pictures, I can't help but feel like Ranka plays the part of the family pet. She is just this cute "thing" that is always serving something or looking puppy eyed at you.

Much prefer when Ranka is a cute girl in her own right.

But all good pictures since they evoke so many thoughts :)

Pete

And it takes me time to come up with one-liners... <_<

I'm starting to feel bad about my A) thoughtfullness and B ) snappiness...

I used to could come up with meaningful things to say, and at least good comebacks.

Oh well, what can you do. ^_^

Likin' those pictures. That last Mylene, though, I'm with Pete. Notsomuch.
