Macross Delta Love Chart

Standard

OK, while we’re waiting for the newest episode, let me share something found on Reddit.  And for those who don’t go there here is a funny take on the love triangles so far.

Let me note that I did not do this, and credit goes to the guy who did this.  I’m just sharing here!  🙂

As for me I’m on Team Mirage, but Freyja is also not as annoying as Ranka was in Macross Frontier (I was on Team Sheryl).  I think wherever the triangle goes I’m OK with it, but I do prefer Hayate x Mirage.  The outcome depends on what Macross overlord Shoji Kawamori will do (oh how will he troll us this time???).

Anyway, ever since Macross Delta started most of my thoughts have been about mecha lol.  And it has sort of revived my interest to blog.  Currently I am not watching anything new aside from Macross Delta.  But I might restart on other stuff as I get out of this weird funk I’m in right now.  Ja!

Macross Delta 09: That other triangle

Standard

Since subs aren’t out yet at the moment, I’m having fun with the ‘mess’ that Messer is in. These are the 3 highlights I got from episode 9…Hahaha

Triangle??!!!

Which means the ‘normal’ triangles are still not in full swing right now.  It’s getting boring on that front.  So I had to make up another triangle  😛

Even if the Jyu Oh Sei captioning experience was fun I won’t be blogging every episode.  But I’ll be posting every now and then in the future.  Delta has brought me back to the anime blogging world and I am enjoying the series so far.  But for now I need to get some sleep  😀

[Brief Impressions] Macross Delta: Battlefield Prologue

Standard

Happy New Year everyone!  Let’s greet 2016 with a brand new Macross series post!  😀

This series is just good news, as I was just losing interest in the anime showing nowadays.  Let me just put out first the things I didn’t like:

  • The 3d stuff wasn’t that good
  • Freyja Wion just reminds me of Ranka Lee too much
  • those magical-girl like transformation sequences make my eyes roll.

Idol Triangle Mecha Power, Make-Up!

As for an all-girl idol group, I am willing to give it a chance.  I am not a fan of those girl groups, but I am curious how this will be handled in Macross Delta.  My only worry is that there are too many characters.  As for the enemy, there’s still much to learn about them.  I’m holding off comment for now.

I also like how the girls of Walkure are able to protect other people and themselves.  Singing and working together with the Valkerie fighters made it more realistic.  (I thought Basara’s style in Macross 7 was really silly.)

Surprisingly, the music wasn’t that bad.  Most Macross music has been good (if not outright excellent), and sets a very high bar.  By the end of the episode the music sounded catchy.  Although I hope that 1) they would also have ‘slow’, emo songs too, 2) the singers perform great live (yes I am very spoiled by May’n and Nakajima performances).

As for the episode over-all, I guess I have been spoiled by the Macross Frontier Deculture edition.  The animation was crisper on the Macross Frontier offering.  I can only hope that Macross Delta will improve in the succeeding episodes.

That ends my first impressions for Macross Delta.  And now the long wait for spring 2016 begins!
