Macross is a continuation, and an expanding history. You cannot continue history without some references to the past.

Besides, on a practical point of view, by referring to the past, you draw older fans (like myself) to the franchise once more while explaining things to the newer fans and bring them to the franchise as well. If this Macross had no references to the past, my interest would have been much less.

In fact, all your baseless posts just makes me wonder if you are seriously interested in a discussion, rather than being a major league arsehole.

He's on my ignore list for a reason, and seeing his posts when people quote him, re-affirms my original opinion of him. He's an asshole, and a troll. Nothing more.

The guy who thought up the robots that even Hikaru thought were kind of silly when they were first introduced.
You just called the VF-1 Valkyrie "silly."

Read up on Kawamori Shoji, and for that matter the production on SDFM, kthxbye.

Heh. Reading the Macross forum became much more enjoyable since I put him on mine, although I do get sabotaged when people quote him.

So, what's Temjin's story? Was he in the previous series? (Only to get quickly killed by a semi-newb?)

He looks like Khyron ( err... Quamzin ), so he is probably another clone of him.

If he will be back... maybe. His Quaedlunn did not explode after all and he didnīt crash far from the shoreline.

He'll be a pain in Alto's ass till Brera decides to kill the idiot for daring to be that guy's rival.

Yea no doubt the Khyrlon look alike will most likely be a reoccurring minor villain. I have to also agree that it's very possible Quamzin is a Khrylon -ling. As in his direct descendant genetically. We know the Zhentradi cloned so why not have two of the same person appearance wise and have the same general attitude?

And as a footnote to my original post, the only real part of the episode that mildly irritated me was the complete lack of death in the rebellion. It reminded me a whole lot of the original SDFM series where there was a lot of shooting but nothing actually happened visually. Perhaps they were going for this same nostalgic feel when animating this episode? Might make sense given the SDF discovery and the appearance of Khyrlon/Quamzin.

Eh, I put him on ignore before I ever began posting here, because after reading the forum for a few weeks it became apparent that he is an annoying, trollish toerag.

The events from OVA 4 that are covered in the movie are a pretty big improvement over the OVA version. Better Sharon concert, Guld gets a much more fitting finale, Sharon seduction of Isamu is better and they include an extra Isamu and Myung scene at the end which was needed.

I just watched the episode... Remind me again how could a variable colony ship end up on some random remote planet?

It's not a colony ship, it's the original Macross and 19 years have taken place since we last saw it in action in Macross Plus.

Going by this pic, they used it for something in that 19 year gap.

Hmmm.... the arms do look different than the ones from the SDF-1 stranded on Gallia 4, though.

Nah They removed the Prometheus and Daedalus after Quamzin's suicide attack.

Replacing them with a couple of ARMD class carriers.

Originally the Macross was supposed to link up with two them but the Zentradi blew them up.

Hikaru thought it was silly. Like "Holy crap, is thing really a robot? " That kind of reaction helped alot in diffusing my skepticism of the whole mecha thing. That and how the thing kept falling over and crushing buildings because Hikaru didn't know how to handle it. Also the swiss-army knife like qualities of it being able to perform field repairs with a tool kit and mechanical arms popping out of the arms and how the cockpit was detachable.

It was funny, lighthearted, and not overly exaggerated.

Ha lol Alto fails as a pilot.

Reading another thread apparently Alto has no idea of the Eden dinobird glide.

Isamu and Guld does this for kicks.

Just goes to show Alto's a space colony boy.
