Well thinking back I can remember that Britai whipped some serious ass when they tried to fight him in hand to hand combat during the episode they get into the battleship. My general point is that I like how Macross is not melee > ranged which like 4 tran said is a combat rule prevalent in most mecha shows.

The whole Britai thing was silly in a good way. The whole culture shock thing coming onto the viewers.

Hopefully the new insects in Frontier will do the same. I always loved insect aliens. Zergs, Martian bugs in Starship Troopers, etc. Bring it on.

Okay I just listened to the unmixed/demo version of Triangler and it's shaping up nicely.

Haha, yikes. The OP sounds like it'd fit in perfectly with a harem/romance story.

Sounds a LOT like the songs that Kanno did with AKINO in Aquarion

Not really what I was expecting, but this is nice too.

I think I'm going to be burnt out on this song before I can even listen to it in good quality.

Yeah, just what i was thinking.

Hmm, i guess it works for me as a Macross OP. Also i was never expected it to sound like anything. It's kanno so it's always a bit risky to do that. But yeah i like it, look forward to hearing it with OP animation, and single release.

Westlo: So stealing the quote from your sig for my sig.

you know that makes sense, logically if you have come to the conclusion that you were going to face a race of giants, who has equipment that suggest that they possibility of hand-to-hand confrontation is a possible threat, then to match them you will have to at leased conceive of a technological aid, in the shape of some construct.

In my opinion i think the solution was answered in the battroid configuration.

we know that the humanoid walker system that was used by the UN Army was more or less conceived at the same time the Valkyries were designed.

actually some source seem to show that the battroid were constructed first, logically we have to consider they were constructed with hand-like limbs as well.

However, i think the valkyries were conceived to solve the problem when confronted in zero-gee environment, in that they can fight in a high speed battle, yet when they came to the immense capital ships they can inflitrate and act as Marines to board and attack from within.

This dual functionality only makes sense when you have ships of incredible size, as at the time they did not even know if the Macross gunship main weapons or any of the humans own weapons can destroy a zentradi capital ship of that size, so infiltration/boarding becomes a serious tactics.

however ever, if ships were of human size such as gundam like, then i think the valkyrie-to-battroid mode would never of been considered.

hell i don't think the humanoid form would ever of been considered at all.

in this regards, th idea of confronting large giant aliens make more sense for the mecha in Macross then the mecha in Gundam.

It just seems such a weak argument in my opinion, that Gundams reason for the humanoid form is better zero-gee battle performance, of a multi-limbed design, blah blah blah. really, that's a nice story but doesn't seriously seems to be that convincing compared to the alien giants.

I've probably listened to it 40 times since I posted that youtube link, I was hoping for something as good as Hemisphere and Sousei no Aquarion and Traingler could be. It's just a question of whether I will still love it in 6/3 years time like those two songs.

On another note I watched the first 10 minutes of the DYRL Remastered DVD rip, gorgeous.

you are a freak.

what man doesn't find a woman's trembling yet highly erotic high pitched squealing not appealing? if only in the satisfaction of a job well done?

For once, I wholeheartedly agree with Kaoishin. >_>

That said, I'm still going to give the OP another chance, as that was obviously very low quality. Don't think it will change though...

^ Thought so

Also I'm not surprised you don't like the OP Kaoishin, what do you prefer between Triangler and Don't Be Late. I'm reading a lot of people on Macross World complaining about Triangler replacing Don't Be Late and funnily enough these people were slamming it back in December/January.

mayaa sakamoto sings the song pretty well, i have to agree that the the recording that we seem to have on youtube is a very poor version, i think i'll reserve judgement until i hear it in a clearer version.

however the tune is catchy and i won't deny that i like it, besides in the original macross the songs were high pitch as well.

it only started with macross plus when the songs were sung by a more "mature" voice.

That i can agree with. Already i'm enjoying just listening to the track, though how it works as an OP is a different story --- at the moment i can see it working, though who knows what i think now will come true.

Shame as well, 'cause we won't see it in action until the second episode.

A lot of people on Macross World for some reason think there will be an OP in the first episode, I'm like thinking... didn't you guys see the Macross Frontier title screen after the first scene? Not to mention Kawamori doesn't generally show the OP in the first episode (which is something I like!) as seen in Escaflowne, Arjuna (I think!) and Aquarion. Anyway it will be interesting to see what they cut out from the 27 minute version (I saw it called directors cut on ANN when it first came out) we have already seen.

EDIT - I just checked out the remastered Escaflowne first episode and it has the OP in it, didn't it start without an OP? Was the OP included for the remastered DVD release?

I like the OP, decent OP that suitable to the anime of the scale of Macross, gives me the raxephone vibe and the violin is a nice touch...

anyway Gundam 00 is over, time for me to camp Macross and Code Geass board
