Movie!Ranka is a much improved version over TV!Ranka, that's for sure.

Actually, Misa was very popular during the time period when Macross aired, and the only Macross character to ever win the Anime Grand Prix Best Female Character in 1983. Minmei didn't even come close.

Minmei's popularity was enlarged mainly, I think, due to the promotional force behind her in the aftermath of the original Macross. After all, we all talk about Minmei, but we don't talk about Misa or Hikaru all that much.

Speak for yourself, there, mate. But then I am a dirty Robotech convert, so I got the doubly whammy of Minmay not only being in the way of the real, only true couple ( rarghlblargh! ) but also being incredibly annoying.

Lisa x Rick FTW!

But wasn't that due to her voice actress being annoying both when she was singing and talking.

I can only remember always thinking "Get out of the fricking way and let Lisa have her guy, she deserves him so much more than you stupid ditz do! Go bugger your annoying cousin!".

I loved Lisa/Misa as a character from the first time I saw her, what can I say.

I will say, no matter how much I love Sheryl and Alto as characters, the original triangle was the better one. Although Hikaru sure as hell was much more of an idiot than Alto.

I know what you mean what kind of idiot tries to wrap the scarf around his girlfriend which has his and another woman's name embellished on it, after standing up said girlfriend on their date?

As Minmay once said...


Pics from opening morning (and afternoon)...

ALL OF THESE PICS ARE SAFE FOR ANYONE, EVEN IF YOU DON"T WANT THE MOVIE SPOILED FOR YOU!!

This was the theater. All pics here (except the ones of me) are taken by Tochiro (and posted here with his permission), who's more or less the Chief Archivist of Macross World. His thread is here: http://www.macrossworld.com/mwf/inde...howtopic=34747 , but if you go through the MW forums, you'll see that every time there's a concert or an event, Tochiro is there, taking pictures and giving incredibly detailed descriptions of what went on. And I wish I had even half of his energy...seriously, the guy can go all day and never seems to get tired. He was also the one to point out one of the greatest lines in the movie: "OPEN RANKA!!"

Anyway, the theater:


Me with Ranka:


After the movie, as I said, we went to Sunshine City (a "city in a skyscraper," 60 stories tall, with a great observation deck at the top). Kawamori, Aya, and Megumi were having a talk there, which (alas) only Save had tickets for. There was a Frontier exhibit on the observation deck as well, and among the many treasures on display there were these:

Spoiler for The ACTUAL SCRIPTS!!:




I broke off from the pack to get some coffee and post on Animesuki from my Kindle. I also wandered over to Animate and got something cool, and then returned to the observation floor. (Pic by Josue)

And which smells of the other woman, to boot.

The general failures of Hikaru are enough to fill a multi-page rant, which I'd rather not do in my generally weakened state ( first time I got a flu-like thing in two years -.- ).

Wow, really nice, Yot. Good pictures and I hope you had tons of fun.

So here's my funny story on why I even read these spoilers. It all started with a mass influx of fan art on the internet for Macross Frontier. Ahh, to be expected, the movie had just come out after all. And now to spoiler tags.

Spoiler for Wings of Goodbye:


So after a day of that bothering me I gave up and just read it.

Spoiler:


No real analysis to offer here, other than it was indeed very sad to hear, but anything further will have to wait for me to actually see the second movie, which may be a year. :/ Preordered the soundtrack though! I will say this though...

Then, when the series started airing (this was after Deculture Ep1), Alto was the main followed by Ranka, and then Sheryl just pushed her out of the circle altogether.

I think the reason Ranka's character kinda falls apart is that Kawamori gave up his moral on her character build in the second half and especially towards the end. Seeing how fans accepted her badly, he just couldn't bring himself to change her. She inspired younger girls to move forward and try to get their boys. But also, the script for Ep21 and onward, when looked at, was really a screw up. I think Kawamori was TRYING (hence the emphasis) to create a more indepth ending. But he couldn't figure out what to do. So he tore apart Alto and Ranka and then tried to put Sheryl in the spotlight like "what will you do next to amaze your fans?"

After Ep18, I kinda saw that one coming. It was meant to build Sheryl's character more. But at that point, Kawamori had already given up on building Ranka's character because no one seemed to notice her anymore. This is proven alone by how Sheryl reacts to Ranka in Ep17, seeing her blatantly as an enemy and then dethroning her at the same time, not treating her like a friend until her illness kicks in. You can immediately see that Kawamori starts to push Ranka into the "feeling disconnected" stage. This is kinda normal for a girl whose parents work all day/night with no siblings. So, we had the famous "goodbye/confession" scene.

Kawamori, at a certain point, just didn't want to try anymore with Ranka, as I said. Her ship (the popularity and whatnot) had sailed only in Ep1. It made me sad that he would just let a character fall like that. After all, he should love his characters equally. But Ranka's character as a whole is based on the creator's choices (she is not human) and Kawamori literally killed her in the triangle by not letting her change.

ONE stem of growth she DID make: the confession.
If it was Ranka from Ep1, the bashful girl who didn't know better, she wouldn't have done that.

Well, the older LOOKING character won this time. Which is quite depressing, honestly. I personally would like to see the younger character win for once. It would be nice to see a younger looking character win the triangle. Truly, the movie!Ranka had more chance of winning than the TV!Ranka. So, when it comes to triangles and how Kawamori resolves them... given how he made the series and then the movies, I don't get his logic when he built such AruRan in the movies and then let it die. Nor the AruSherri from the series and then both were friendzoned. Partly, that's what makes me dislike Macross so much. Though I do love Mecha! XD
This should be moved to Ranka character discussion.

I think that has more to do with DYRL and Flash Back that radically changed her character (to more "Sheryl-like" than "Ranka-like" from the TV series. Hey, Kawamori realizes their similitudes). I know I used to love Misa in the TV series, but DYRL Minmay won me over and became my favorite (when Flash Back came along). I didn't think she was suited with Hikaru, though. Hikaru was just a fanboy with a crush.

We know how TV Ranka would have acted
"I JUST WANNA DIE NOW ;_; NO MORE SINGING PLEASE!!! ALTO COME TO VAJIRA LAND WITH ME EVEN IF THEY SKEWERED YOUR BEST FRIEND AND COMRADE A FEW HOURS BEFORE!"

I agree with Thess in that both girls pretty much got a personality makeover. That being Said with Sheryls he sort of zoomed forward to what she was like mid-late into the series while Ranka was changed rather entirely. I'm not sure if I like movie Ranka honestly...as retarded as series Ranka was as time went by I did start to like her in a pitiful way. She does try she just does it wrong.

Anywayyy do want movie ;_; do wannntttttt
I will miss MF...
I wish movie 2 had more pretty cosplayable outfits though...
