Because THORA also does licensed anime which Animesuki does NOT allow.

At the time Macross Frontier ever gets licensed... then directing you to their links would be prohibited as well.

GG and several other groups do licensed series, they're still listed? Why GG, Menclave or Eclipse and not THORA?

Macross 7 posts moved to the Macross 7 thread.

Please keep in mind that, while the discussion had some merit, this thread isn't really here for discussion. It's supposed to be a place where someone can pop in and ask a question and get a straightforward answer. A question like "why do people dislike X?" is more condusive to a real discussion rather than a quick answer, so it doesn't belong here.

Ah, let me just quote back some relevant parts of my post that got moved too:

Certainly the feeling and emotions can be transmitted through, but I think the actual image and interaction was built up by Sheryl alone.

At first I thought it was a form of telepathy, but the scene of Sheryl was healed while still lying on the floor unconscious make me think otherwise. It would be illogic for a singer who try to take control an vast army, a pilot who fighting for his life, and an unconscious singer to communicate in any mean. Unless all brain system was connected and the whole conversation was happened in 1 sec or less
If this was Star Wars, it's something like Ranka having achieved a level of mastery of the Force. Then sensing a disturbance in Sheryl, she instructed the midichlorains to behave nicely.
My answer here got moved too:

Basically, the "singing to Protoculture" part was a mistranslation by Chihiro. I was baited into speculating based on this mistranslation.

If this series had the force it would be even more AWESOME! You would just need some ninja cyborgs to complete the transition..... O wait.....

Technically they did have it in robotech, but they call it protoculture. .

"Protoculture serves both to refer to the first extraterrestrial humanoid civilization itself ("Proto Culture" or Proto Kerlchuun, what means "Old Culture" or "Ancient Culture" in Zentradi language) and earthling culture itself."

So I wouldn't know what that means ether, under that meaning, unless they where calling themselves that for what ever reason.

I also believe its probably a mistranslation, but this series had me confused with how they kept on saying protoculture and deculture around randomly. I remember someone saying deculture was a curse word, along the lines of O-CRAP or O-NO in Zentradi which confused me further that there would be a song about it. Which service is to depress the Chinese "I kid of course".

Nope. "Protoculture" only refers to the original civilzation that died 500,000 years before the start of the stories. The Zentradi only used the word in relation to humanity because humans reminded them of the protoculture.

Do you have to be full blooded zentradi too...?

Do you have to be a full blooded Zentradi to enlarge "heh heh heh". Can people Who are half mixed, or 1/4 mixed become giant. Someone once told me you have to be born giant. So if the mother was preganent and decides to become a micron, would that Zentradi baby lose its giant ability? Would a mother who is preganent with a mixed race child hurt the child in some way?

Any miclone race can probably use the micron chamber to become giant, like Dynamite 7's Graham. There may be unforeseen side effects and health problems, like Millia was worried about in staying other than your natural size for extended periods, though. Also, the legal use of micron chambers is probably highly regulated, and available to Zentradi only, or banned outright for security reasons or lack of facilities to accomodate giants. If Sheryl's account of the other fleets is accurate, Frontier is very liberal regarding integrating full-sized Zentrans as part of their culture and the regular use of micron chambers.

The real reason is two-fold, one of which you somewhat touched on in your reply.

1) SMS (the PMC contracted by NUNS to provide protection for the colonization fleet) was testing (or whatever) the VF-25 per the series. This was explicitly mentioned in one of the first episodes.

2) By the time Macross F rolls around (I forget the exact date; mid 2050's?), the VF-19 will have been in service for nearly 15 years. I'd say they would have moved on by then, don't you think?

For instance, the primary variable fighter during Space War I (original Macross, circa 2009-2010) was the VF-1, and by 2012 they had the VF-4; mid 2030's they were at VF-11 (Thunderbolt), and by 2045 (Macross 7) they had production-model VF-19 and VF-22's (based on the prototype YF-19 and YF-21, which were being tested in Macross Plus, which took place in 2040).

Make sense?

Yeah, I'm a bit of a Macross geek.

True, but the question was why the mainstay fighter was not a enhanced (previously top of the line) VF-19 from the previous generation which was intended to replace the VF-11 eventually, but an localised upgrade version of the ancient VF-17 Nightmare from two generations back.

Aside from the cool-factor reasons (not wanting the VF-19 to overshadow the VF-25, obviously), the VF-19 and 22 were expensive fighters. Even in Macross 7, only a handful of elite squadrons had access to the fighter.

In contrast, the VF-17 and the later VF-171 are to-the-point fighters that can be mass produced at a relatively reasonable cost, and its easier to adapt (compared to the 19 and 22) by new pilots.

What he said. There's actually very little we could relate it to our own vernacular, as it's a Zentraedi idiomatic expression. So, assume it to be an interjection that can be used to express surprise, delight, amusement, etc... mostly related to protoculture derived forms of expression, like music, movies, etc.

The only impression I ever got from 7 was that Max would never cheat on his wife

Beyond that, there was a surprising lack of information.
