Yack B-Deculture!


It's about time that the US finally got some Macross again, subbed or dubbed it doesn't matter to me.

MANGA did alright with Macross Plus (English Dub still superior, it has Brian Cranston, arguing is invalid), and ADV kind of lost it with Macross (didn't like their cast of english-dub voices compared to what we had in Robotech) but it's been so long.

I'm on the fence about these

I'm on the fence about these movies. I consider the first one to be an excellent compression of the first half of the TV series that introduces nice new elements and balances the forming love triangle better than the original.

Movie two is the opposite, stumbling like a drunk into a less satisfying (Though still visually impressive!) conclusion that lacks a lot of the emotional maturity that the show grew into. By the end, Macross Frontier had a lot of grey in the morality of it's characters and even whether or not the ending was happy. I don't feel 'The Wings of Goodbye' captured that at all.

It was also one of the few times I was cool with the main character not choosing a love interest. There was a war on, he clearly likes them both, and it somehow felt more like 'not the time for romance' than the 'duuuur, what's a decision!?' we get in most anime.

Ah, so... yeah. On topic... probably not gonna buy? Curse licensing issues keeping this stuff from American release!
