Although you are correct, the focus tend to be on dogfights.

As much as I would always recommend LOGH to anyone, can we not let this thread get off topic. There is an LOGH thread in the fansub forum so let's keep this strictly Macross related please.

Anyway, I have a hunch this will be the most action oriented episode since the first one. I can't wait to see what the Macross Quarter is capable of.

To me, one of the most iconic scenes in Macross is the "Daedalus Punch". You know those people who decry at the sight of Fighter-Mecha engaging in melee? Their brains would probably explode at the idea of Capital Ships meleeing.


Rule of Cool

Cheers.

I'm dreading the inevitable appearance of "Battle Frontier".

Nah Battle Frontier is the same class as Battle 7 having a shotgun for a cannon.

SMS Macross Quarter as seen in the op has a main gun arm.

Looking forward to the Monster definitely and the clash of the juggernauts should there be one.

Hopefully the character animation picks up this episode. It has been pretty lackluster the previous episodes.

Spoiler for Off Topic about Legend of the Galactic Heroes:

I wouldn't want to see my favourite Macross mech out of action after one episode only.

If anything, I want to see the Monster crush the bugs with its bare fists...

30 seconds of Konig Monster action = auto 10 and the best episode of the series, rest of the show can be stick figures!

Just because of the above-mentioned sequence (and my own expectations of this episode), I'm going to avoid all Macross fora like the plague until I watch the raw.

Unadulterated, unbiased entertainment :P

I seriously want to see the monster actually do some serious hurt. All we really get from it in all the series is it firing its massive cannons. I want to see it actually do more than vaporise an enemy mech.

Actually, why is a medic piloting one? hehe

The original destroid was indeed a crew served vehicle, but with the advance in technology, i don't think it's hard to nail it down to just the pilot now.

No point thinking about the details of the controls, after 15+ years, I'm still having a hard time figuring out how they move the arms in a valkyrie with just the two joystick configuration....

Saves yourself from the white hair, just roll with it.

If the Monster shots down a flying Red i'll be surprised. Personally, I think it's best against large stationary targets.

Also, I'm pretty hoping no one dies this ep. :P

out of curiosity what ep did Focker die in?

Nah; I'm pretty sure we won't be hearing' what bout my star this ep(hopefully). She's in a gown. Would be really weird is she's singing that poppy'ish song wearing a long dress.
