- they did a major overhaul of the sheet :tired: Nevertheless, it 'feels' a bit more rounded than the initial version.

- those Zentraadi ranks are a handful, aren't they? Has Miria's full rank been mentioned before?

- the RM wasn't quite as revealing about the topic of the sheet as I'd have liked. Nevertheless, the headlines are intriguing.

Episode: 7 41A & B: Macross 7 Eps. 41 "I Like Mylene Very Much!": http://sketchleytranslation.host-ed.me/MCRepisode/MCRepisode.php#M7

- a bit light, but the episode was light-hearted anyways. The bit on the Sunny Flower is good, but I have the feeling of already having reading it somewhere else...

Episode: F23A & B: Macross F Eps. 23 "True Beginning": http://sketchleytranslation.host-ed.me/MCRepisode/MCRepisode.php#MF

- quite a few highlights on this one - the commentary being one of the better ones, for starters. The one about Sheryl's paper airplane is also surprising - how many of us noticed the paper that she used, let alone contemplated the significance of it?

- unsurprisingly, light on details.

- a bit more info, but still quite light.

- Aside from bumping the Otech B sheet into an A sheet (why couldn't they rename the sheet, too?), there aren't many major changed. The translation has been cleaned up to be consistent with the conventions I'm currently using.

- no major changes between the two editions (the minor ones include some minor fixes to make the Japanese a bit easier for native speakers to read).

- great commentary and description of the Destroid team's hard fight, and the Operator Camp topic is insightful.

Episode: 7 42A & B: Macross 7 Eps. 42 "The Great Desperate Capture Operation": http://sketchleytranslation.host-ed.me/MCRepisode/MCRepisode.php#M7

- most interestingly, they mention an 8th Protodevilun, the "Space Fold Evhil"...

Not quite. Says "VF-19EF/A Isamu Special"

Oh, that's actually encouraging since it might have more info on the Advance. Regardless, this cover new painting means we're getting a major profile on this VF-19 Variant. Hopefully it also means some more info on other VF/YF-19 variants as well.

Note for those picking this magazine up at bookstores: #67 is indicated as being released on MONDAY, Apr. 28.

I wonder if #68 will be released on May 12, as the regular day falls in the middle of Golden Week...

- most interesting is the choice of terminology in the RM: specifically "the base of". In one sense, it could be interpreted as the same as the SDF:M chronology: the ASS-1 became the SDF-1. Another way to interpret it is that the ship design was copied, and the SDF-1 in the movie is a completely human created ship.

Oh, so deliciously vague!

- wish I had more time to completely finish this one. Nevertheless, has some good points, and the "fourth form" is kinda neat.

Episode: Ai 01E,F: Super Dimensional Fortress Macross Do You Remember Love?: http://sketchleytranslation.host-ed.me/MCRepisode/MCRepisode.php#DYRL

- some very interesting points on the changes between the TV series and movie, and how the movie is perceived in the greater Macross world.

Episode: 7 43A & B: Macross 7 Eps. 43 "Respective Partings": http://sketchleytranslation.host-ed.me/MCRepisode/MCRepisode.php#M7

- an interesting tie-in to FB7 (and how the events in M7 are generally perceived in the Macross world), and the commentary underlines the excellent thematic directing of this episode.

Mechanic: F NUNS 03A VF-171EX Nightmare Plus EX: http://sketchleytranslation.host-ed.me/MCRmechanic/MCRmechanic.php#MF

- a bunch of major changes - namely the removal of half the content! Presumably they're going to produce a sheet dedicated to Luca's RVF-171EX and the normal VF-171EX. Nevertheless, the rewritten GERWALK Mode section confirms that the VF-171 and VF-171EX don't have elbow beam guns (no word on forearm beam guns) and doesn't have the VF-17's High-Speed Combat Form.

Some other observations:

- there will be a total of 8 episode sheets for the DYRL movie (unlike the total 6 for the first (and presumably second) Frontier movie).

- #67 has a second sheet for Macross The Ride, covering all the main VFs and the new VF-11 cockpit penned by Kazutaka Miyatake. I doubt that we'll get another sheet for the minor VFs that appeared, but anything's possible at this point.

Haven't they already had a bunch of VF-1 covers?

That's the VF-1 from the Technology 01Q page foldout, which has a VF development genealogy chart on the reverse.

That said, the VF-1 sells. With the MC, probably more so than anything else they can put on the cover.

- a little bit of the new in the RM, with plenty of the already known.

Mechanic: M UN 13A: CVS-101 Prometheus: http://sketchleytranslation.host-ed.me/MCRmechanic/MCRmechanic.php#SDFM

- quite a rearrangement of the two original sheets. That said, its quite sparse on new info, and the annoying "under investigation" markers apparently haven't had their investigation completed...

- probably the biggest revelation is that one entire leg is devoted to food production!
