Macross Frontier (Macross 25) general discussion [No Spoilers]

I've read rumours of a new macross series in the works. The rumour I hear is they're looking for VA's. Does that mean that it'll be ready soon? Will it be out this year (25th anniv of MAcross). Is Kawamori involved?

Please don't let this be some sick joke to torment me.

I've heard it as well on various message boards and stuff, so I'm guessing maybe we'll hear something in the fall perhaps. I remember it also came up during the Kissdum discussions prior to that show airing (it has Valkyrie-like aircraft)

These guys seem to get the scoop right most of the time. Trust me I'm praying for this

If its what I think it is I think they were for auditions for the next voce of a Minmay type character (I don't know if the plot is like Macross 7 or a direct sequel to SDF Macross, prays for the latter)

But as long as its nothing like Macross II I'll be happy

Proof? From every reliable source I've come across, the only news is that a VA has been selected for the "Idol" character and announcements as to the storyline and VA's involved will be made in the Japanese summer.

4-19-07 (8:17PM EDT)---- New Macross To Be Announced This Summer
At this year's Tokyo International Anime Fair 2007 a Satelight representative told ANS the latest Macross anime will be announced this summer. The next Macross idol heroine has been selected through the Victor Vocal And Voice Audition and will be announced at the same time.

http://www.animenewsservice.com/archives/aprilxx.htm

Other initial rumours indicate that there will be all new mechas. No more VF1's

will be extremely pissed if its Seed-like in any way, shape of form.

The battloids are a lot different, and I'm having a hard time visualizing them turning into some of the fighter designs on that page. It does seem rather interesting though, so I'm eagerly awaiting something a bit more refined released.

But I think this rules out my hope that the new Macross would follow Hikaru and the rest of his ship. Oh well.

Macross Flashback 2012 was the apparent sendoff of Misa, Hikaru and Minmay. I don't think we'll ever see them again.

I want more singing whales (oh wait no I don't)

No announcement yet. There's a 25th anniversary Macross concert coming up and that's when all details are supposed to be announced.

However from the looks of the battloids I'm pretty sure it will be set after Macross 7. It just looks like the battloids just look too advanced, they look more like advanced versions of VF11's in Mac7, rather than anything in SDF, Mac 0, Mac plus etc etc

EDIT: Just watched SDF MAcross and DYRL again (probably the 50th+ time). Damn the intro theme still gets to me. THe music in general is still so awesome. But then again I am a child of the 80's.

I hear the plot takes place in a school-like environment.

A military academy, perhaps?

Got no problems with it being 3D/CG mecha. Satelight has done a great job with that. Macross Zero 3D/CG Mecha was jaw dropping that's something I would want in this series to look like.

Yeah, Macross Zero was definitely awesome, but I'd rather see 2d then 3d. Must be cause I'm old school when it comes to Macross.
Animating mecha fights is something beautiful. Nowadays it looks like animators are getting lazy and are doing everything with computers.

Not to disappoint you, but animators have not been using many manual animation techniques for years now. Almost all coloring is done on a computer, for example.

Since this is a Satelight production, the mecha are definitely going to be CGI. Which should be fairly awesome, if past work is any indication.

And I am looking forward to finding out who they selected to be this "new Minmei". Let's hope she isn't as annoying as the original one. 8)

Is it just me or does the design on the top left of the image somehow resemble the Solar Aquarion (the head)? Anyway, I'm obviously going to keep an eye on this for all various reasons (because it's a Macross serie, because there's Kawamori, and I do hope that Yoko Kanno will join in again).
