Robotech: The Masters aka Southern Cross

I'm only like 5 episodes into this and this thing is boring as hell. Not even the shock of two boob shots that I wasn't expecting could shake me out of my boredom on this one. I don't like Dana...and I'm finding it hard to believe she is Max and Miriya's kid. Both Nova and Crystal would be more convincing as their child. Nova looks the part and Crystal acts the part.

I'm just forcing myself through this one to get to the New Generation...and plus I bought it, so I might as well watch it. I remember this being my least favorite of the three stories when I was 6 or 7, don't remember when I saw this first, and again at 13-14 when Sci-Fi channel aired these, and now again at 32 when I bought them on DVD.

I doubt the guy would throw away his acting career to fuck some underage cooz.

Is cooz with a s or a z? or a ze maybe?

Robotech: The Masters aka Southern Cross

This was, by far, my least favorite "saga" of the Robotech triumvirate. The mecha designs were blah, the characters were difficult to cheer for, and virtually nothing happened that amounted to anything. If you're watching it to get to the Invid saga, I wouldn't bother. The only thing it contributes to the overarching story is explaining the Invid and how they were there at the start of the New Generation. One could say that the pupil pistol concept from Southern Cross comes up again, IIRC, in Guld's YF-21 from Macross Plus, but that's probably a stretch.

BTW, if you've never watched it, Macross Plus is a GREAT show. Despite being set and fitting neatly within the Macross universe, it has the added benefit of being stand-alone. While the OVA version has more material, the movie version is better, so I recommend it instead. Come to think of it, I haven't watched this one in a while....

Wasn't it Faye that was on the warpath over some anime dude who fucks his underage fans at conventions?
I need to get into voice acting.

Oh yeah I know. I mean I could sum up everything that happened in The Master that played into New Generation in one sentence. I've seen all of Robotech before, but this is just kinda an OCD type thing. Besides I'm already on the New Generation which I really, really enjoy.

And  Yeah I was want to see Macross Plus and Macross 7 for that matter. I like the idea of sequels to Macross even though I've never seen any. Kinda wish they have done what Voltron did and go back and order more episodes of the show from the same animation company rather then trying to fit other anime together. (although we did get vehicle Voltron...which did really bad if I remember right. People loved the Lions.) but alas....they didn't.

(although we did get vehicle Voltron...which did really bad if I remember right. People loved the Lions.) but alas....they didn't.

I always heard the vehicle-based show was better. But I wasn't ever into Voltron of any stripe, so that's all I've got on the subject.

I've never watched Macross 7...all I know is that it's about Max and Milia's daughter and the band she's in, and that it's somewhat silly but still well regarded. I'm not so sure that I would like it that much, though.

Macross II, however, should be avoided like the plague...it's pure D crap that was relegated to alternate universe status by the masterminds of the franchise.

Macross Plus is wonderful...again, I preferred the movie, but the OVA is easier to find and is also excellent. I wish we could get an HD release of either or both in North America, because I haven't found it online with the excellent English dub.

Macross Zero was much fun (linked to a spoiler-y review of my own devising). It's essentially a very pretty prequel to the original Macross series set during the Unification Wars and the reconstruction of the Super Dimensional Fortress Macross. Great show that gets a little preachy from an ecological POV.

The Macross Frontier series was very good, as was the first movie, but I haven't started the second one yet. Character and mecha design was really good, as was the soundtrack and recorded numbers, and the progression was fluid, even if the nature of the enemy was not very clear. It was a bit by the numbers, but I still liked it a lot.

You already know my feelings of Macross: Do You Remember Love. If not, I love it above all other anime. It's a retelling of the original series that is actually viewed in-continuity during Macross 7 as a popular motion picture that commemorates the events of the Space War I.

My ranking of them in terms of personal favorite would be as follows:
DYRL>Plus>Original series>Frontier=Zero>>>>>>>>>>>>>MacII. Since I've not seen Mac7 I didn't list it.

I've got something similar, but I mainly use it for pre-recording radio spots.

After talking about Macross Zero I went and  looked it up and I've actually seen parts of that. I think it must have been the movie because it was only on one night on the Sci-Fi channel, but it was a long time ago. Only things I can really remember about it where the AI that infects the SDF and the love triangle with the two pilots.

Since each OVA is 35-45 minutes long, and there's four of 'em, it probably was the movie. I saw it originally on Encore Action a dozen or so years ago.

A new Lupin TV series focusing on Fujiko is starting next month.

My fingers are crossed for quality. If the animation is anything like the promotional stills, I will be very happy indeed.

The first episode was great. I really like the art style, it's got this desaturated, charcoal-shaded thing going on. I'm totally on board for more.

And, yes, that was her reason. I have a hard time believing it, though.
What? I think he's hot, 8/10 would bang, etc etc. Never seen/heard any of his work , but I've come along a lot of people and threads talking about him and bitching about how he's rude to people, how he only flirts with young girls and do them etc etc. No evidence he fucked a minor though. I guess it's just a case of middle age crisis


Edit:
Btw Nuri, have you ever watched Rumiko Takahashi's "Maison Ikkoku"? There's a channel here that always shows her toons at night. First was Ranma, Inuyasha, also the one with the Oni woman, and now the Maison Ikkoku.  I think it's funny how the characters all look the same in all her mangas, and yet she keeps selling them. THey all have t hesame personalities too, everything. Can't believe she's one of the wealthiest people in Japan

I've seen a little of it and read about equally as little.  It was years ago though.  I was always curious about what happened to the characters in the end but it was probably nothing as usual.

BANG!

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Maison_Ikkoku
Doesn't have much action, mostly romance. Boring but the girl looks exactly like Akane and the boy like Ranma (and the red haired girl like Ranma too)

Btw did you see the Ranma live action movie?

eeeeeee??? Mansion Ikkoku? shit and here I thought it was an obscure anime

Yes. It was "cute" cause they really tried. but....
You can watch the whole movie in youtube though, but really, it isn't worth it ( I Just watched it cause it was on tv). The movie its about the first couple of episodes only, but they don't follow the original story line (so no Ryouga, damnit). Ranma looks skinny and ugly. Kuno 8/10

Bleh

LOL, Ranma is ugs!  He looks totally old.  And female Ranma is not cute at all.  Female Ranma should be way cuter than Akane.  And that raggedy panda.  Ha ha, it's so terrible but awful in a good, lulzy way.

I was hanging out with a friend while she was watching Pretear with her niece. It's on the sort of line where it's not too girly because it has some combat in it.

I saw one ep for free years back when Newtype USA was still alive and had that preview DVD.  I didn't think it was terrible but it didn't hold my interest.  At least not back then.

I know right, Ranma is thin too. The bad guy was such a joke. I wonder if they'll do an Inuyasha one
