thats right after posting the zero revew I notest that I didint have a review for macross, macross 7, macross pluse, or frunter up so Il be posting them tonight thats right you get 4 reviews In one day ofcros Il be combining them into one super post lol becuse I dont what to post three things so lets get right into it first up is the history behind macrosss
the origanol super demanchanol fortress macross anime ared on october 3 1982 and ran for 36 eps ending on Jun 26, 1983 and was derected by Ishiguro, Noboru and besides this his most notasabol project wood have to be Legend of the Galactic Heroes the natoreus 110 ep OVA and the Mechanical Design was dune by Kawamori, Shoji who also derected macross zero and Earth Maiden Arjun witch odly anuph relly exsplans the eco frandly message of zero but evrone els wood probly now his as the Mechanical Designer for elreka seven
now thare are a few stapols of macross that make it difrent from others the first being the way romance is handoled ushaly in macha anime the love story is a second thout whar as its a forthout and its alwas a love triangal and is rarely handeld well the second is music is alwas intracol part of the story and not just a theme and OST with one of the cast members being good at singing and for most of the time a profashanol idol or singer
now with out ferther a due the first macross anime I will be talking about in this massiv macross post will be the origanol SDF macross and I have to say this was one of the macha anime that salitafide the real robot gara after tamino made it with mobil suit gundam the the valkariys witch wer transorming jets that had three modes jet, gerwalk(a jet with arms and legs) and battarod(robot) and even in battrod mode they wer about haff the size of a MS and dispite thare only being grunt Mass protuction units in the hands of a well traing piolt cude do sum relly amazing things and to this day remain as me favret type of macha
now the story is abit stail by todays standerds but I still love it
In 1999, an alien ship crashes on South Atalia Island and makes the human race aware of other life in space. Ten years later, the ship is reconstructed and christened as the SDF-1 Macross. However, on the day of its maiden voyage, an alien race called the Zentraedi make their appearance on Earth, beginning the UN Spacy/Zentraedi war that would change the history of both races forever.
I love the casts dynamic each cariter plays off eachother in a way that makes you relly grow atached to them witch makes its hard when sumthing happens to them witch it duse Im not gana lie thars sumthing that happens in this anime that makes kaminas death seem like nuthing and then thars cast members that you relly wish whood die but just dont
next up will ne the art witch is dated by todays standers it all being old 80s hand drown cels so thows that dont like that youl probly hate SDF macrosses art but it is still varry good art as far as I can remember thar are no WTF moments in it like thare was in gundam atlest for the fighting thare wer sum WTF moments in sum of the non fighing moments like a person randomly apering or disapering
the music is to be ecspected above avreg and for its time was relly good I love the op and ofcorse the iconic my boyfreand is a piolt song sung by minmai in the miss macross ep is relly nice
ofcorse no mater how mutch I like her singing that whont chang the fact minmai is a bitch who thinks nuthing other then herself
so I give SDF macross 10 pinappel salids out of of 10
next up is macross 7 witch till macross plus came out was the derect sequel to SDF macross but since it came out first Il be talking about 7 and all its sequels/speshols firsrt
this is probly my favret macross anime the mecha in this look amasing the vf-19 kai aka the fire valcary as to be my favret type of valkary and niki basara has to be the greates singer of all time for what he acomplashis in this anime and max is by far the greates macross capten and also one of the great mistarys of the world him being nerly 50 but not looking a day ofer 30
35 years have passed since Lynn Minmay had brought peace between the Zentradi and the humans in the events of Macross. Nekki Basara is a guitarist and a singer of the band Fire Bomber. Living in a less-developed part of the flying colony City 7 which is looking for a habitable planet, he composes and sings songs in the belief that music holds a greater power.
During its flight, an unknown alien race appeared and started laying siege upon City 7. However, its attacks are not conventional -- instead of trying to destroy them, they steal what is known as "spiritia", rendering victims unresponsive and zombie-like. During these battles, Basara always goes out into the middle of the warzone, singing his songs and expecting friend and foe to listen and be moved by his music.
and sepicing of the music macross 7 has to have the greates sound track in macros I love all the songs from fire bomber and wood love to acholy have thar records on CD and being a produc of the 90s its not saprising I love this growing up in the 90s myself
now despite this being my favret macross anime thare is sum big problems with it and that wood be in the animation but its not the quolaty thats great its the use of reused animation its relly bad its to the pont that over 80% of the fights are reused I cant tell you how many times Iv seen a valkary destroy a enamy gust to be hit from behind exsplode sending an escap pod out just to be capcherd its relly bad but I dont watch macross 7 for the fights I wach it for the cast
witch is great 2 chariters from SDF macross come back and play saporting rolse one being max and the other being his wife Milia and like in UC gundam they dont overshadow the new cast thow I dont see how anyone cud over shadow niki basara the man is so gun ho about singing it wood put any one to shame so he duse have sum flaws for the most part he remans the same thewout the anime never relly growing up but that in itself was probly a preconseved idea
like SDF macross macross 7 gets 10 badd ass rock solos out of 10
the next macross on my list will be macross 7 dynamite a short 4 ep OVA witch picks up Less than a year after the events that transpired in the Macross 7 TV series, Basara leaves Fire Bomber and travels to the planet Zola. There, he meets a girl named Elma, who is a big fan of Fire Bomber. It is also on this planet where he must once again use his Spiritia powers; this time, to stop an army of poachers and Elma's father Graham from killing a group of space whales travelling within the planetary system.
all the cast come back in this and over all thars not mutch I can talk about this ova its not relly that good nore is it bad infact they cud have just taked it on the end of the anime thow it did have one thing going for it and that wood be the op
in the end i have to give macross 7 dynamite 7 exsplotions out of 10
now we get to arguably the best instolment of macross macross plus I relly dont see why thow yes its looks and sounds great but it was to mutch like top gun for my tasts and I didint relly like any any of the main cast and the plot twist at the end revolving to of the castmembers didint make sence at all becuse of the action of sed cast members erlyer in the OVA
The year is 2040 and the galaxy is flourishing with several colonies and advanced technology. AI is near perfection and the current top idol is the near-completed Virturoid Idol Sharon Apple. All that is missing are her actual feelings, which instead are supplied by Myung Fang Lone. Sharon's debut concert is on planet Eden, where at the same time, fighter pilots Isamu Dyson and Guld Bowman battle over air superiority for the "Supernova Project." Isamu, Guld and Myung were once childhood friends, but after an accident seven years ago, they went their own separate ways. With Myung back in the picture, the old disputes are once again awakened. And when an unstable and illegal AI technique is installed in Sharon, the situation is worsened.
now the one of the two saving grases of this OVA is the singing the op is great like all macross anime
the next saving grace for this OVA also has to to with one of my complants and that is the fights yes I sed it was to mutch like top gun and becuse of that we get sum great fighting and its becuse of this I give macross pluse 6 zentrodie freek outs out of 10
last on my list if macross frontier this is the newist instolment into the franchis and is farly good granted the love triangel was handoled so badly that it even made macross 7s love triangel look good but aside from that evrything els was great the cast thow anoying was handeld well and the music like alwas relly good and F has alot of thow backs to older macrosses with ranka sining my boyfreands a piolet in the miss macross compation just like minmai did and the fighting is great the CG was relly handoled well in this anime and the storys good
After being threatened by extinction at the hands of alien invaders called the Zentradi, humanity undertook the task of guaranteeing itself a future by launching fleets of colony ships into space. On Macross Frontier, one such fleet, high school student Saotome Alto's life is changed forever: the fleet is suddenly attacked by unidentified creatures while he is performing aerial stunts for a concert by the wildly popular idol Sheryl.
Alto quickly finds himself in the cockpit of a new-model fighter struggling to protect Ranka Lee, a young girl he met only hours earlier, from the invaders' swath of destruction. Noting his performance during this incident, the S.M.S. Skull Squadron private military company invites Alto to join their organization, where he continues protecting his friends and Macross Frontier.
and as I sed the music is great aside from macross 7 macross f has my favret OST
so over all I give macross f 10 flying space bugs out of 10
