Macross Frontier Manga Discussion



The Macross Frontier manga adaptation had begun publication in Kadokawa Shoten’s Monthly Shonen Ace Japanese manga magazine in the February 2008 issue. I guess it is safe to assume that there is more than one person behind the manga since there is no mention of an author. Macross-fans don't need a synopsis, but for formality's sake here is one in the following stolen from AniDB:
Macross F sets out in the year 2059 A.D. The "F" is short for "Frontier", which is also the name of the migration fleet this story is about. We join the fleet's journey when the concert of the famous pop-idol Sheryl Nome, is just around the corner. Sheryl is visiting Frontier from Macross Galaxy (another colonization fleet), on her tour around the galaxy.

Just like with the Macross Seven migration fleet, the main ship is a huge city-dome. This is the home of the majority of the fleet's population, on the scale of 10 million people. It is a place where they can live life, just as they would back on Earth. However peace is soon broken when strange alien creatures attack the fleet, just when Sheryl's concert is well underway.

What could it be that have drawn them to this fleet? Is Sheryl the only one on board with a talent for singing? What secrets will we learn about the past? And what cool new Valkyries will be revealed for this show?
Have a merry discussion.

Does anyone know what the 3rd manga series is about? I think it's replacing the Ranka Lee sidestory manga. (was that a one shot or something?)

Situations are a bit different... but as of the moment I'm liking how the Anime is progressing, better.

Judging from the translations, I absolutely love the manga. The anime seems to have more depth but both have their own charms.

Interesting. I'm not sure who's the focus this time, but I have an idea.

"Macross Frontier: Dakishimete, Ginga no Hate made" = Exact same line Ranka said when she arrived in that VF with Mikhail. ^_^

Ugh. More cutesy drawing style for the manga.

Why can't they hire the author who drew Macross 7 Trash instead?

Because Haruhiko Mikimoto (who is the sole character designer for the original MACROSS) is a big shot, and big shots are expensive. He volunteered to draw 7's TRASH Nobody hired him to do it last time I checked.

Well it is not like i dont like these kind of chara design but i dont like it for a serie like macross... as for comedy series i would like these "cutesy" drawstyle (e.g Lucky star) but for serious drama like Macross is a nono for me.

Just wondering, does anyone know how the manga Macross F ended? I heard that it was an AltoxRanka end, and I wanted to know whether that was true or not.

The Sheryl manga seems to be taking after the movie canon. Through out the manga I'd have to say that the key word you hear the most in this manga is the "live".

Spoiler for for the manga and Sheryl's past:

To be continued....
