First off, wow blu-ray. The colors and details are so much better than I remember the first time through. That's a big deal with the animation quality this show has. My only complaint here is that sometimes it makes the character stick out, since the backgrounds and everything else are so well done. I'd always felt the characters looked a bit messy though.

On the episode proper, it's a great first episode. All the main characters are shown and the base relationships are established. They even leave it with a little cliffhanger at the end to make sure you come back next week. The first ep also made me realize how much the characters develop over the series, and how my opinions changed.

I pretty much developed into a Sheryl fan through the course of the series, but I like Ranka in this episode (which I pretty much 180'd on eventually). She's cute and fun, just an average school girl. Not to mention, she's got some legs on her . Alto is pretty much a cocky hot shot at this point, and I can't say I'm a fan. Though he does step it up to save Ranka.

Also, that guy piloting the fighter/mech (I don't recall what they're actually called, sorry ) Gilliam flying into Frontier, why was he shooting at the vajra with the colony behind it? That just seems like it would be a bad idea, though no damage was shown. Shields I guess.

His names Gilliam, and it was only said once, so i can't blame you for not remembering it. As for his pursuit of the Vajra, he must have known that the city was protected by a strong enough shield that wouldn't be damaged by the level of attack he was using against the creature.

Thanks for that, I should have remembered it from reading Magnuskn's post.

Also, just to clarify for myself since I'm a bit of a geek about geting things right, what is the right thing to call the ships they pilot? I was trying to look it up, but wasn't quite sure. I was seeing valkyrie, but I figured to ask just to make sure.

On a related note on the first episode, Alto just throws out that the ship is a VF-25 model. Which seems kind of strange to me. Though I guess you could say it sets up that it's part of a special squad since it's not officially in production.

Valkyrie would be correct.

For more details on the VF-25 that are used in Macross Frontier, check this link out. You're sure to have a blast reading it.

Fair enough.

Laptop or something? That works. I guess I would use my Android phone, I certainly do have stuff to say that I forget about but I don't want to be pausing.

But they can make it believable, right? Have Alto behind stage with Michael and Luca as they run off and right after he sees Sheryl running while the people are still in the stadium, then he can give his useless speech.

Keep up the screenshots guys. Can't take them on the PS3, though i'd love to make a collection. :3
You really want screenshots? I can make several hundred per episode if you want no problem.

I have to say, I thought of making a thread suggesting a whole forum for re-watches several months ago but thought it would be rejected right off the bat.

Long story short, legal concerns with the Macross copyright. Blame Robotech.

Ahhh, the first episode. So much eye candy and the animation quality was really great.
Music was good, and I remember getting addicted to the "Motekke" part of Iteza here.

As for the characters, my initial impressions were:

Alto = TILF (Trap I'd Like to F*ck)
Ranka = Another girl-next-door loli-moe
Sheryl = Stripperella bitch
Cathy = HOT HOT HOT <--- I also thought she would be Sheryl's rival. X'D
Vajra = Space Lobsters

I am still amazed when I look back at how different my impressions and opinions were compared to now.

There's also the musical rights to consider, no?

"Tondekke!" part too. XP
And nyahahaha~ just as planned.
Also, despite my impression on Sheryl, I thought she was really resourceful when Alto knocked her off the stage. It showed she was a professional, which is a reason why I'm not liking the movie version's take on that scene.

Loving raile's idea. Think i'll steal it.

First thoughts:

Alto: Tsun tsun hime. <3
Sheryl: My kind of woman. I'd lure her in with strawberry pie.
Ranka: Yeah those dog ears. That's all i could think about make when i was first watching this first episode.
Ozma: Yeah he's gonna die.
Cathy: I've always loved a woman in uniform, and wow does she do it right.
Luca: Jailbait shouta.
Michael: Yeah he might die, but for now swoooosh he's awesome.

& towards Yot-chan's post. I was expecting it. Seriously, i was.

Okay, I'll go along, too.

First thoughts:

Alto: Not your typical hot-blooded lead - loved the way he reacted to Michael's teasing, btw.
Sheryl: Bitchy bitch. A professional one, but bitchy. Not my kind of girl.
Ranka: Fun, outgoing and independent. I like her.
Ozma: Yeah he's gonna die (by Shiroth).
Cathy: Hot Misa vibes. Love her already.
Luca: No impression other than mirth at his corkscrew comment.
Michael: Definitely gonna die. Maybe by the second episode.

Oh, wow, it's gonna be fun to see how this changes (or not) throughout the series.

Luca: He's TOTALLY gonna get the hottest girl, right?
Michael: Max...?
Nanase: ...

EDIT: I'd like to point out again that I had dinner with this guy:

Guess I'll follow as well:

Alto: Cut your damn hair!
Sheryl: Mmmmmmmm.......mmmmmm....
Ranka: How does she move her hair like that?
Ozma: GAR!!
Cathy: Scold me, please!
Luca: You have something on your cheeks.
Michael: Smooooooth.
Nanase: *bobs head*
Gilliam: Nice knowing you...not.

Who else is watching Thora's? I wish the subtitles were a little bigger.
