RM++ Project:

Episode: M25A & B: Super Dimensional Fortress Macross Eps. 25 "Virgin Road": http://sketchleytranslation.host-ed.me/MCRepisode/MCRepisode.php#SDFM

- some very interesting points are raised, not to mention the marital status of the three bridge bunnies as of 2045.

Episode: 7 37A & B: Macross 7 Eps. 37 "The Riddle Of The Space Ruins?": http://sketchleytranslation.host-ed.me/MCRepisode/MCRepisode.php#M7

- one question remains: is it that easy to decipher the writing of the Protoculture? Or does that "vast insight" imply that one has a background in the Zentraadi language and Over Technology in general?

Gallery Zero: Macross Zero #57: http://sketchleytranslation.host-ed.me/MCRgallery/MCRgallery.php#M0

- interesting. Another picture not in the original.

Glossary 17A: Nuujaderu Gaa - Vajra: http://sketchleytranslation.host-ed.me/MCRglossary/MCRglossary.php

- revised, edited and retranslated some parts that were... yucky. Should I mention that some parts were changed between the two editions?

RM++ Project:

Character: F SMS 01B: Saotome Aruto: http://sketchleytranslation.host-ed.me/MCRcharacter/MCRcharacter.php#MF

- one of the RM's is a godsend - it clarifies not only the root cause of Aruto's actions, but also highlights at least one of the reasons why he ended up with who he ends up with.

Mechanic: 7 UN 10B: Macross 7 Fleet Aircraft: http://sketchleytranslation.host-ed.me/MCRmechanic/MCRmechanic.php#M7

- no major changes in the translation, but isn't it interesting that the editors decided to move the sheet has been moved from the UN section to the Civilian section?

RM++ Project:

Character: M Citizen 03B: The People In The Macross: http://sketchleytranslation.host-ed.me/MCRcharacter/MCRcharacter.php#SDFM

- the RM's are a bit light, but underlining the humans-with-giants living together post war is decidedly Macross.

Worldguide 26A: Idols: http://sketchleytranslation.host-ed.me/MCRworldguide/MCRworldguide.php

- some interesting stuff. Especially on the idols that got bumped to the sides with the appearance of the "super idols" in Macross. The RM on the abilities of Sara Nome is eye opening.

Complete:

Mechanic: M Zentraadi 09B: Zentraadi Pods: http://sketchleytranslation.host-ed.me/MCRmechanic/MCRmechanic.php#SDFM

- some changes between the two editions. Though, the translated needed (and got!) a major overhaul.

RM++ Project:

Timeline 44A: Operation Stargazer (7): http://sketchleytranslation.host-ed.me/MCRtimeline/MCRtimeline.php

- it feels like the density of the text in the timeline summary has increased. Were the initial writers feeling the page count crunch? The RM's are quite interesting - nostalgic, but also give a faint hint of lost opportunities (for dramatic pathos in the series, mainly).

RM++ Project:

Episode: M26A & B: Super Dimensional Fortress Macross Eps. 26 "Messenger": http://sketchleytranslation.host-ed.me/MCRepisode/MCRepisode.php#SDFM

- Who is the newcomer Matsuki? Despite highlighting how many times he appears, the RM doesn't really answer that.

On another note: when I was looking up the VA for Exsedor, I came across "Exidor", one of the reoccurring characters in "Mork & Mindy". Did Macross borrow the name? (As M&M predates SDFM). Does anyone know the story on that?

Episode: F18A & B: Macross F Eps. 18 "Fold Fame": http://sketchleytranslation.host-ed.me/MCRepisode/MCRepisode.php#MF

- most interesting is the production side influencing the writing side of the series. And then there is that whole Nishimura Tomomichi and the originator/modern Minmei thang. :wacko:

History M 11A: Release Of "Little White Dragon": http://sketchleytranslation.host-ed.me/MCRhistory/MCRhistory.php#SDFM

- highlights in the RM are some of the names of the other propaganda films, and how this movie was one of the contributing factors in the destruction of the Earth. O.O;;;

Worldguide 22A: Super Dimensional Restaurant "Nyan-Nyan": http://sketchleytranslation.host-ed.me/MCRworldguide/MCRworldguide.php

- a bit more on Yocchan and his rise to galactic domination (in a way), and the uniforms (look closely at the picture connected to the "irregardless of the age or body shape" caption. ;)

RM++ Project:

Timeline 45A: The Conclusion Of The Varohta Campaign (7): http://sketchleytranslation.host-ed.me/MCRtimeline/MCRtimeline.php

- although the first RM is a fascinating bit of pseudo-science, the second one is gold, as far as providing a bit more detail to "what happened to the M7 fleet after the series" goes.

RM++ Project:

Glossary 18A: Hassan - Vampire: http://sketchleytranslation.host-ed.me/MCRglossary/MCRglossary.php

- although it rounds out or adds much needed detail in some sections, it also comes up lacking in others (ie: what is Barunasium used for? Aside from being rare, why is it so valuable? After all, Fold Quartz is rare, but it doesn't appear to be any where near as valuable...

RM++ Project:

TF01C & D: Macross F Theatrical Edition ~The Wings Of Goodbye~: http://sketchleytranslation.host-ed.me/MCRepisode/MCRepisode.php#TMF

- I'm not sure if the nuances in the "Training As An Oyama" are conveyed adequately. In short: Aruto has the habit of being more womanly than Sheryl is at times.

Episode: 7 38A & B: Macross 7 Eps. 38 "Sybil Of The Forbidden Planet": http://sketchleytranslation.host-ed.me/MCRepisode/MCRepisode.php#M7

- quite interesting. On top of the symbolism and a meditation on the implications of the episode, we also get a definitive statement on what went wrong with the SDF-1's Space Fold at the start of SDFM (hopefully it'll put to rest the argument in some circles that that botched Space Fold was part of the Supervision Forces' booby trap...).

So besides grabbing a chunk of whatever land mass is nearby, it also skews space fold coordinates/destinations....Got it!

So I guess space fold jumping, like travelling through hyperspace, is also nothing like dusting crops...... :rolleyes:

RM++ Project:

History: TF 04A: The Goal Of The Galaxy Fleet: http://sketchleytranslation.host-ed.me/MCRhistory/MCRhistory.php#TMF

- a nice summary of Fold Quartz's effects in the Macross Universe, and a delicious RM that highlights a few more differences between the TV series and the movie version of MF.

- translation has been cleaned up in spots (and with the notes on what may be a typo on the publisher's side *may* have made at least one section more understandable).

Image-wise, the revised edition has coloured the illo of the two ARMD attached to the Storm Attacker form SDF-1.

Worldguide 24A: Vajra: http://sketchleytranslation.host-ed.me/MCRworldguide/MCRworldguide.php

- no major changes between the two versions. Some minor ones but, surprisingly, they don't effect the translation! (the editors are making it more understandable for Japanese readers or something along those lines).

Timeline 46A: The Unexpected Meeting With the Galactic Whales (D7): http://sketchleytranslation.host-ed.me/MCRtimeline/MCRtimeline.php

- wish I had more time to give the ancient Zolan inscription translation a bit more of an Olde English feel to them. Nevertheless, both RM's add to the series. On the flip side, there is nary a mention of Gamlin and the other members of Fire Bomber in the headlines and timeline highlights...

- the description of the production side of things is quite interesting. Especially Kawamori killing a VCR in the process!

Episode: F19A & B: Macross F Eps. 19 "Triangular": http://sketchleytranslation.host-ed.me/MCRepisode/MCRepisode.php#MF

- the highlights are, again, the notes on the production side.

RM++ Project:

Episode: F20A & B: Macross F Eps. 209 "Diamond Crevasse": http://sketchleytranslation.host-ed.me/MCRepisode/MCRepisode.php#MF

- some interesting points, especially about the possibility of Michele having slept around with other S.M.S. coworkers. That said, I guess we can take this sheet as confirmation that the VF-25A did appear in the TV series.

Episode: 7 39A & B: Macross 7 Eps. 39 "The Basara Who Returned": http://sketchleytranslation.host-ed.me/MCRepisode/MCRepisode.php#M7

- the highlight of this sheet is the clarification that the Three Star ship (and all the other function ships in the New Macross Class fleets) are produced for each fleet (I was left with some confusion from the sheet on the Three Star, which implied that the Three Star Ship was unique - though in retrospect, that probably could be implying that it was modified during the voyage to become unique. Ah... Japanese, and its tendency to not clearly state the subject!)
