At the end of the Deculture edition the song is Ai Oboete Imasu ka from DYRL, not Macross Plus.


I think the person was talking about FanSub credits. Where the song Voices was played. So not actually part of the show.

Just thought of one. The Kamjin looking guy that was in charge of the Zentran holding Sheryl hostage.

OK thought of another Easter egg that I know you all have heard me say multiple times.

In Macross 7 you here Basara (and Gigil later) yell, "Listen to my song!" Which we all hear Sheryl yell at the start of her concert in episode one. Sorry if it was mentioned before and I missed it.

Since the 1st episode, it was quite apparent that there will be numerous references to the original series (SDFM) and others in the Macross franchise. For example, when Ozma was introduced as the leader of the skull squadron, the inevitable comparisons and parallels to Roy Fokker are going to be made.

Some of these parallels we have seen in ep. 17


Others I could think of off the top of my head:

Minmay doll - Ranka doll (in the commercial cut clip)
Aimo (Ranka's alien pet) and Guvava (Mylene's alien pet)

Including the ones others have posted (especially the ones in episode one), I am sure there are thousands of subtle ones too.

Makes me want to keep watching more.

Doh! just thought of one Ranka getting role of Mao in the movie in Ep 10. Is kinda like Mylene getting the role of Minmay in the TV special, On Macross 7.

Oh and wait didnt Basara end up being Hikaru? Kinda like alto's last minute roll of Shin?

at first Basara was asigned to the role, but he decided to quite the role. so they ended up replacing Basara with a sum other guy (soon to be a member of the Jamming Birds), but unfournatly for this guy he got the living daylight sucked out from him. In the end Basara was forced to take the role of Hikaru.

The Nyan Nyan restaurant Ranka used to work at. It's the same restaurant that Minmei used to work at from SDFM. It must have become a franchise since then.

Also, whenever you see Alto in his Valkrye, it was done so much like the opening of SDFM. The way the Valkrye lifts up and how Alto lifts his head.

Well glad to see you agree. Also, and I hope no one mentioned it yet, Dr. Mao Nome is the same Mao from Macross Zero. The picture looks just her too if she aged. It seems that Frontier references so much of Zero. Personally though, Zero just didn't make sense to me.

my opinion about Dr.Mao is that she must have made herself a researcher for that Bird Human and the civilization that made it. if we look at the timeline where we first saw Dr. Mao as a girl, wouldn't it be surprising that she haven't aged a lot from the time the picture where Dr.Mao, Grace, and the other researcher was taken on the 117th Fleet 11 years ago?

and the Earrings Sheryl was wearing can bee seen on Macross Zero w/c still kinda gives me mystery...

Well so much for the hunt! You pretty much just handed it to me on a silver platter. Like shooting fish in a barrel.

Still, I wanna see it for myself. Just for the sake of seeing it.

Thanks!
