Errr... no. They use the CBC feed on Friday, and are normally ready on late Saturday. That has been the norm for the whole time. What you are talking about were the speedsubbers of Chihiro, which either dont do the show anymore or ceased to exist.

If memory serves me correct (I'm a big Macross Fanboy), Hikaru watched Lynn Minmay kiss with Lynn Kaifun on his valkyrie's display, used to deliver culture shock in the middle of her singing routine during the epic battle (eps. 26, I think?), right before she sings "Shao Pai Lon." I could be wrong on the song.

Anyhow, the barrage of missiles hit Hikaru's VF-1S Super Valkyrie as he blocks them with his armored arms of the battroid, thus destroying his arms. He regains consciousness as he is entering the earth's atmosphere and after the firing of the Grand Cannon and destruction of U.N. Spacy's Alaska Base. Misa was a/the (only?) survivor and sends out a Mayday which Hikaru intercepts. He then proceeds to rescue her.

The parallels you are trying to draw are a bit off since--if we are to compare characters between Frontier and SDF:

-Alto is Hikaru
-Sheryl is Misa (since we're not using DYRL in the comparison)
-Brera is Kaifun
-Ranka is Minmay

We didn't seen Brera kiss Ranka (That would be bad. It was bad enough with Minmay and Kaifun being cousins...worse with siblings...but hey, whatever floats your boat.) before she started singing. Instead it was Alto and Sheryl kissing and then Alto appearing to be blown up.

If we were to use a different system for comparison that would equate to the events of SDF, then Alto and Sheryl would have to be Kaifun and Minmay. Now that really doesn't make sense.

However, I do see the parallels with previous Macross series and MacF and acknowledge that MacF likes to reuse past themes. It's just that you can't really compare it all on a 1:1 basis and have to allow for deviation. After all this is MacF and not SDF Macross. We clearly see this in the Pineapple Cake episode.

Sorry for the long post, but I've been a spectator for so long, I felt I had to participate before this comes to an end. I'm also a closet SxA shipper.

My 2 cents.
Oh I definitely agree. It's not an exact match. Relationships change. There are roles handed off to different characters.

Like Cathy resembles Misa. her personality is a fairly close match (compared to Ranka and Sheryl). And she dresses the same and has the same role on the bridge. But she's dating the equivalent of Roy Folker.

One of the bridge bunnies has the eyes of Professor Emil Lang's eyes.

They killed the guy who resembled Max Jinaas/Sterling. But kept the pilot in green Ben Dixon/Luca. And so on.

Ranka is definitely Minmei. But in episode 24 she's off-ship like Misa was. And she needs to be saved just like Misa.

It's a hodgepodge of the original Macross.

Wow, on the plot side that was one powerful episode. As Megane-san said, the usage of Ai oboete imasu ka was indeed the ultimate irony. I cannot complain about everything in that respect. That whole image segment was truly powerful, specially for those like me who have seen the original Macross.

On the SMS side, well, apart from being the cavalry it seems they are now the expository scapegoat for all the things that hadn't been made clean on the story so far. Aw well, fortunately it wasn't information one wasn't able to pick up from hints scattered over the series, so it wasn't all that bad-

On the romance front, it's obvious that the producers are just trying to please evevryone and are making a mess out of the character relationships because of it. I give up, I no longer care about this.

Another thing I'm not liking is how they are playing the evil scientist side ouf of Sheryl It's obvious she is a radical liberal, and they are making the retrograde conservatives out of the good guys. Oh, the political implications.

I haven't seen the original Macross series (only Frontier), but I absolutely love the song Ai Oboete Imasuka. It sounds so sad and creepy... Ranka how could you?!?!?

Off-topic but....is that a Popsicle between those 2 girls in your new sig there Tak? I just noticed it

As for "Ai Oboete Imasuka," I still believe that Mari Iijima's version is a little better but Ranka's version has a different feel to it that appeals to me. For some reason, I like them both equally now

Ai Oboete Imasuka in the deculture version of episode 1 is better than the one in episode 24 in my opinion...


But of course, no one can beat the original version from Mari Irjima

Haha ok cool. Well I just finished the series, and man what a roller coaster ride it was! About the song... I like Ranka's voice on it in this episode and the whole creepy thingy going on, it sounds awesome! However, there were a lot of references from the older series in the last few episodes (or so it seemed), so I will definitely have to check out the original Ai Oboete Imasuka by Mari!

Don't let the old sounding instrumental of the original "Ai Oboete Imasuka" turn you away, it's really good. There is no other way to explain it, you just have to listen to it and see how you feel about it

Uh, how did Alto break Rankas heart in episode 24? She didn't have any contact with him during the episode.
