sketchley Posted February 26, 2011 Share Posted February 26, 2011 (edited) What is Macross? It's whatever you perceive it to be, limited by what aspects of it that you've been exposed to. So, if you think Macross has a VF-X that can transform into a funky headed battroid 'cuz the Yamato toy can, or that the Studio Nue timeline ends up in the MII one, that's entirely up to you. However, for the sake of communicating with others who have different perceptions, I'm making this definition to help communicate ideas and make the conversation flow more easily. Feel free to use it, too. Media listed from newest to oldest: Official Setting (irrefutable Macross) The animations & liner notes: MF (& movies), M0, M7 (& movies/OVAs), M+ (& movie), MII, FB2012, SDFM (& movies) articles in: Animage magazine, B-Club Magazine, Great Mechanics, Monthly Bandai Making Journal, Newtype audio drama (superseded by animation if different): Macross Generation, Nyan Dra games & related publications: MDM VF-X, VF-X2, Macross Plus - Game Edition, Macross M3, SDFM 2036, SDFM: Eternal Love Song. manga: Macross II: Lovers Again, Macross 7 Trash, Macross Dynamite 7: Mylene Beat novels (superseded by animation if different): Macross II publications: Entertainment Bible, Macross Chronicle, Movic Books, The "Gold" Book, This is Animation (Special, the Select) serializations: Macross the Ride (tentative) Expanded Universe (plausible Macross, material doesn't explicitly contradict the Official Setting) animations: DYRL (in any use other than as part of MII or as a movie within a movie), Macross XX articles in: audio drama: games & related publications: Macross Ace/Triangle/Ultimate Frontier, SDFM, SDFM-DYRL, SDFM Macross VOXP manga: Macross the First publications: Design Works, Macross Hobby Handbook, Tenjin Hidetaka Valkyries (1 & 2), Variable Fighter Master File serializations: Other (implausible Macross, material contradicts the Official Setting) animations & liner notes: All that VF (M0 & M25 ver.), Macross 3DVFX articles in: Character Model Magazine audio drama: games & related publications: manga: Macross II: the Micron Conspiracy Publications: Dojinshi (fanfics), Macross: The RPG, Macross II: the RPG, various model/hobby publications featuring kit-bashes serializations: Question to you, MW members - what materials need to be added and what category should they fall under? (in short, I'm thinking if there's any doubt on other members that it's not part of the Official Setting, it should be part of the Expanded Universe) I'm sure I'm missing a lot of content from this short list (novels and manga readily come to mind), so please post any that you'd like to have added, and which category you feel it falls under.
