Hey everyone, I'm sorry if I'm not supposed to ask this here but since I have downloaded limit, I need to ask if Gattai's translation is good? or should I wait for AiA I-Z?

Okay, I'll take your word for it. ^_^

My crave for more Macross Frontier is really overruling my usual patience, I like translation to songs. Maybe just this once, I will go with a speed-sub. ^^"

If you have some understanding of japanese, it's ok, some error in it but nothing misleading/serious for Gattai's translation.

I would take another sub's translation though for my anime archive

Thanks for your thoughts.

It's good to get more experienced anime watcher's perspectives.

I think good translation is very important for anime which involve subtle character development, strategy (ala death note) but less so for action orientated anime. As someone who's never watched any series of Macross before, I don't know what catergory Macross comes under but from what I hear, character development which in turn means dialogue is important in Macross Frontier. But in saying that (sorry for ranting), I'm still going to try out Gattai's version because I honestly can't wait any longer. My interest in anime has been waning but after watching ep1 of Macross, I remember why i used to love anime and the great feeling it brings.

Argh! Why did I just go off on a rant? fO_o

I'd really like to know what the lyrics are for Diamond Crevasse.

It looks like Ranka was just singing one of Sheryl's tunes.

Besides the fact that the earrings are obviously a part of Sheryl's persona, since she's seen wearing them all the time, it's a great plot device to link the main characters together. Perhaps it's some kind of galactic gossamer thread, hopefully we'll get more of its story later on.

The anime also tries to build up on the earring's importance to the plot, like having it glitter after just the first minute of episode 1 (Deculture ver.) and using it as the ED background.

2nd Episode is pure win. Thrill and epic. Awesome fight between the Vajra, Ozma, Alto and Mikhail. Roy Focker and Maximillian are back in their own way.

Also I like Alto, he's got the attitude and what it takes to be GAR. The only bad thing about him was the whole 'princess' thing, it's really disturbing. I hope in the future eps he decide to cut his hair short, and we will have ourselves Hikaru and a hotblood pilot.

I'm just going to grab the .ass files for gattai to watch with the raw and than grab a good release when it's made available.

You more than likely answered your own question.

Orion's hoping he doesn't cut his hair or his long/short hair pairing in Alto/Ranka goes down the drain

i'm quite sad that shinsen sub isn't picking this up.

i guess they are far too much of a Gundam fans to like Macross.

That's right! Keep that long hair and draw in those female viewers.

GAR is not a matter of hair length but a matter of attitude.

Gotta love Ranka's "Hey brother, you're in a department where you can get me that hot guy's (Alto's) name,address and phone number." Yep, she's age appropriate. Also kind of nice seeing girls doing this kind of thing in an anime.

Poor Alto. The military wants him as a pilot. Sheryl's after him for something which I hope is less trivial than "Have you seen my lost earring?". Ranka's after him doing the teen thing which is prob good until her brother finds out.

It seems foreordained that Alto will be part of SMS. And then he'll have the older and *very* protective brother of his love interest as his CO. And while I think Ozma was actually impressed by Alto's eagerness, he *did* punch him out for asking to fly the VF-25. Heaven knows what will happen to Alto when Ozma catches on. Now *that's* going to give us some interesting plot development.

Really, though, you're right, poor Alto. Dude was just trying to help, and now his life is going to get really, really complicated.

Speedsubs are speedsubs. We're trying to get the TL down 90-95% fairly quickly (02 should've been released Friday evening), enough that you can watch it and understand, for the most part, what's going on. I hope you're not archiving it because we're just releasing for people (like ourselves) who can't wait for certain groups that are known for being really slow to finally get around to this series.

Well this was a pretty fun episode. I'm happy that it got subbed and I could then have a clue about what was going on. A thanks to the subbers.

The Kabuki background gets cleared up a little. Being involved as a young age and switching later to piloting. Certainly is something he'd rather not have brought up.

Ranka's hair really does have a mind of its own. Great seeing it rise up like that right before the scream. Get two people in a one person piloting seat and even after a fight like that interesting situations come forward .

Alto's life really is going to get complicated, oh well those are the breaks.

Episode 2 is really good, the pacing of the episode was really excellent and the art didn't suffer from episode 1 at all. Looking at the preview for Episode 3, it probably won't be that action-packed though.

Nice to see Ozma's Valkyries (An armored VF-171?), I prefer it over the VF25 so far. VF-171 looks a bit like a mix of VF-1 and VF-4 whereas VF25 reminds me of the VF21
