The All-Purpose Macross Discussion Thread
Because the mods aren't letting us have any fun on the official forums, we might as well have our own gig here.
Would branch into other more specific threads if necessary.
Yeah, they've been a "
" stick-in-their-asses lately.
Yeah, what the hell? It's as if they've decreed a fatwa over the Macross forums, while other forums are just as chaotic as ever. I'd have understood that around, oh, 2009-2010, when there were ship-to-ship battles going on every day, but nowadays when people are mostly civil to each other and every now and again some stuff comes up, they go into deletion fests and bannings for things which would have been considered tame back then.
No idea what got a burr up their butt now.
I cannot figure out what their problem is. I suspect they finger-picked certain individuals who actually
the series to run the board.
I mean, even with Ship to Ship battles are concerned... doesn't that, you know...
with the territory?
Power corrupts~ *le whistle*
So in an effort to continue our last conversation:

Where I basically said:
Lets not piss her off, or we will turn her into another Ijima, bitter and angry about ever playing Lynn Minmei.
re: Mods -> Actually, CrowKenobi and others were active on the boards during the series and seem to like the characters quite much. So it ain't that. The possibility that their mod power has gone to their head also is not that unlikely, I've seem some mods who treat their board as their personal fiefdom.
But it seems most likely that they have singled us out as a troublespot and are especially heavy-handed due to this. I don't know what the heck started this, however, as I said we were mostly calm during the last half year. And even before that it was mostly people responding to LMKs long-winded stuff.
re: Aya Endo -> I am not seeing how asking how Sheryl would change over the next years would provoke a negative reaction. Without context, her comment could just as well have been jesting. So I don't think that she'll be bitter about her role as Sheryl. She seems to have plenty of other jobs since Frontier, though not in as high-profile roles or as good series.
THIS IS MY FIEFDOM!!
Well, Endo has a significantly more diverse and extensive voice acting career than Ijima, so it is unlikely she will go bitter over one character anytime soon, seeing how she is spared from the fate of type-casting.
But I am not going to test her patience.
The chances of her going
over one character might be minimal, but its still there... Overall, she is an awesome VA. That aside, even May'n is doing very well in expanding her career, and she is probably in more danger of being a type-cast than Aya... Fortunately, she is doing very well on her own.
To be honest, I am not really understanding the concern about that... is it because Minmei's VA went batshit about constant questions about her character in Macross? Endo and May'n are entertainers, they should be used to getting fangirled/boyed over their stuff. I don't see why they should behave differently than, y'know, every other famous entertainer.
Or they can end up like Sir Alec Guinness, who cursed his role as Obi Wan, and even forced a fan to promise
watch Star Wars again
I don't think actors/actresses/VAs like the idea of being type-cast. Doesn't look too good on their profile. Lets hope things won't end that way for them.
There are a number of actors who have been annoyed by a particular role coming to dominate people's perceptions and/or the kind of things they get asked. Examples include Patrick Stewart, Alan Rickman, and Leonard Nimoy (though Nimoy seems to be pretty cool with being Spock nowadays).
Sure, but as I said before, there doesn't seem to be a problem here for Endo, she is getting plenty of roles elsewhere. Although, to be fair, none of them in shows as good or as high-profile as Frontier.
Well, there was Guilty Crown, but we all know how
NOOO Maggy, don't mention that awful show ever again in my presence!!!!!!
Be warned! Shipping posts spotted at the main board! Only time will tell when the mods be deletin~ lol
Eh, I don't know. Maybe their deletion spree was more to the others being OT to the thread? Their sphincters seem very tight on that account.
I'm having some fun debating again, although it is a definite sense of deja vú. ^^
I think I
some of those posts way back when...
You know... I initially did not come to the Macross forums expecting to talk about...
but... what do you know...
...And I did not expect to have another LMK-esque arguments AFTER everything had been concluded and cemented by Kawamori and staff.
@Beto, some people just REFUSE to move on until they do a Scar-lets-Mufasa-die kind of thing.
I am guiltily enjoying these Lion King references...
Well, to be fair, the new guy acknowledges the official ship. He is just guilty of trying to salvage the sinking one while committing an effort of restoration that is almost akin to an unholy ritual...
