    At least Lacus Clyne doesn't "confuse and conquer" enemies with her singing. This one does, in the mids of a great battle .

    That sounds almost as bad as Lacus Clyne.

    Imagine Lacus Clyne but without political power. Just a really good singer whose singing can charm the enemy in a rather hilarious way.

    Okay, I think I get it. Also, no, I'm not familiar with Lyn Minmay. I haven't watched or read anything from Macross. :V

    Basically, Shoji Kawamori made all Macross series and movies ambiguous. He stated that (I'm paraphrasing here) that none of the Macross features are canon (be it series, movies, novels, mangas, etc) Why? Because all of them are mere recreation of the "actual events". Basically like Hollywood's "based on true story" movies.

    For example: you're familiar with the character Lyn Minmay from the first Macross, right? (She's the girl who charmed the Zentraedi alien-giants with her singing). In Kawamori's eyes, both Minmay from the first series and the DYRL movie are not the true Minmay. They're just recreations from the "actual Minmay character" out there in his imagination.

    On one hand, it is very confusing because nothing is certain anymore. But on the other hand, it is somewhat liberating because nobody will have any problems with inconsistency from one series to another, or between series & movies, or between different medias. In short, all of the stories can be both right and wrong. Funky theory, right?

    So what does Shoji Kawamori refer to, anyway? I don't follow Macross.

    Yup. He's consistent, but for the wrong reasons .

    I keep forgetting I can't freaking talk about SEED around monster lest I want to put my head through my desk. Argh.

    He's dedicated, I'll give him that. But too often he defends the parts of SEED that don't deserve defending. It could be the shittiest part of SEED and he'd still try and hold it up as something great when it's not.

    RD, don't you think monster deserves a medal for defending the plot holes in SEED so persistently? Hell, Fukuda should've kissed his feet already!
