    Default Macross Frontier anime (maybe Robotech rings a bell)

    I just wanted to inform people of this anime thats about to appear on air (start airing on April 3). You could watch the first episode on torrent. I gotta say it looks amazing, heres a description from animenewsnetwork

    Plot Summary: Macross Frontier marks the 25th anniversary of the Macross anime franchise. It is a direct sequel to te first Macross series and Macross 7 and follows the lives of Alto Saotome, Ranka Lee and a pop idol named Sheryl Nome on board the Macross Frontier colonization fleet.

    heres the link for the first episode for those who haven't watched it yet. I highly recommend it since it looks awesome. The fights are in CG and look like something from a star wars movie. It's got great production values

    So, I started watching this cause Dante said it was really great. After catching up to date with all the episodes, I honestly can say it's fallen a bit short for me story wise.

    The only thing I like about the series is Sheryl, Ranks(though barely), and the klan klan girl with blue hair. the whole war itself isn't all that interesting but those characters are the only reasons why I'm still watching this right now. Although I do admit, the animation is incredible, that was one of the other things that still keeps me going with the series as well.

    Not too sure how great this'll be by the end of the series but I hope the story gets a lot better. =/

    I watched the first 5-6 episodes. I'm a hardcore Macross/Gundam fan. THis show is great. Gundam 00 is also amazing. It's my current fave.

    For those who haven't watched the original Macross series (and I highly recomend you don't, because they are mind numbingly poor quality), I suggest you go and read up about them on wikipedia. Its not required to know anything about the previous series, but it makes it much more enjoyable.

    Eh, that's pretty much the only reason why I watch it now. The whole aliens and war part of the story seem to be moot since they continue to focus on the music.

    I peaked at the raw of episode 10 and it's only about Ranka's career. If they just called it something else and focus on music, imo it'd be better.

    dont get me wrong, i didnt mean that i dont like a series that's focused on music/singers and such. i really like the series not least because of the situation sherly is in but she still tries going on (sherlys near breakdown on stage was really touching.) and for ranka its difficult to start a music career while a war is going on.

    your right the war and the danger alto and rankas brother are in when they fight are only made to create a certain moot, while ranka and sherly have to stay patiently without beeing able to do anything. thats give it some kind of dramatic feeling, which is also accentuated by the music.

    still

    its just that i would like to know a little more about the aliens. some backgroundinfo.
    the main focus of the series sure is music, but a great part also lies on the war. the conspiracy, galaxies fate, the motives behind the war and so on.
