Am I the only one rather bothered about this cutesy look they're giving Ranka for the second movie? I mean, that poster alone... if I wasn't already a fan, I probably would steer clear from a movie with such a poster.

I'm not bothered by it at all, i mean personally one of the appealing aspects of Ranka is how adorable she can come across as being, especially with that image, so i'm quite pleased they're going down this route. Looks like it already started with the costumes she was in for the first film.

I actually don't have any problem with that look all that much. The colors look gummy-bear-edible and visually aesthetic. The only thing about it is...it looks like a poster for a mahou shoujo anime, it doesn't really say Macross.
The Sheryl poster of the first movie, as fanservicey as it was, gave an impression of something serious and mysterious. The Ranka poster looks like something of Sailor Moon meets Shugo Chara (of which are both guilty pleasures of mines). Ah well, those are just my two cents.

Oh and...

First movie= Sheryl = black and white bunny
Second movie= Ranka = magician

Bobby will be the lovely assistant?

XD

Raile Hit it on the head

The poster itself looks fine... just not for a Macross poster

It does look more like a mahou shoujo anime

I blame the marketing teams who have declared that "mecha doesn't sell." You can look at pretty much any Macross promotional material over the last couple of years...if there are any Valkyries shown at all, they're tiny and in the corner.

I agree. I like Ranka, but I don't like the fact that it seems like they upped the cuteness-level even more. But, then again, I don't like the fanservicey Black Bunny Sheryl either. The TV series did a better job at making Sheryl "fanservice-y" but not too much, and Ranka a "moe" character but not to annoying levels, IMO.

See, that's exactly my problem, right there. But hey, I'm clearly in the minority, here...

Ranka's a girl who'd fit nicely into a Shugo Chara episode, or Precure, so i don't see the problem.

But yeah i'd rather have a poster that was more Macross related then that, though it's a bit of fun so it's alright i guess.

Not really a Macross image per se, but it's real. And someone might have some fun doctoring this pic with Photoshop.

Hello minna-san !!
Any news about Sheryl's shoujo manga? [Kiss in the Galaxy] Tired of looking and not think anything, not scan on Chinese Web sites. I'm anxious to see >.<

Even I as a fan of Macross Frontier ,My sincere opinion:
Did not like the poster [Ranka] ... very magical girl ... where is Macross? Is this the "new era" for the anime Macross [moe, moe, moe, for Japanese otaku crazy about lolicon]?
Ok, the poster is cute and funny .. but is not Macross! Would be good for any child or moe anime [the Sheryl's "bunny dark / white" was fanservice, but still seemed more "serious"]
Valkyries do not matter anymore now?Where is the essence of Macross?
I hope the movie does not disappoint!

To my delight, even though it has the manga 'Macross - The First "
that is .... Macross!

You've done it raile...you've revived me in the Macross sub-forum It's really not so much the amount of pics but the quality of them. All of these pics are just great, thank you for uploading all these pics

I certainly do appreciate it. *cookies*

Not really, I completely agree with you and raile as well. I don't mind moe or any cutesy stuff at all but looking at the poster and knowing what Macross is all about just doesn't blend well with me either. Ranka in extra "moe" mode isn't necessarily the problem, it's more of the fact that it doesn't represent Macross in any way. It feels like some will go watch the movie for different reasons, but what can we do? Money makes the world go around.

Hmmm...don't you see the resemblance? I think Alto, Michael, Luca, and Nanase would be more appropriate to shop into the pic...
