I saw the extended version of it yesterday. Not too much different from the preview episode and still no OP song yet.

I'm getting some thrills after seeing that cliffhanger though. And also, a good start to the show is the music. I really hope this series can capitalize on a lot on the music...


Watched a RAW of MD this morning. Pretty good stuff, and while the purists may disagree, I think the idol stuff was a nice touch. Wonder if their going to do an updated version of "My Boyfriend is a Pilot" sometime down the line.

This Harmony Gold bull started when I was an infant, and we're still getting shows denied THIRTY-THREE YEARS LATER.

AFAIK, some anime producers in those days didn't seem to understand the concept of a limited duration license. I believe this is also true for Voyager's license to their episodes of Space Battleship Yamato, as well, although thankfully they don't appear to claim any ownership of the franchise itself.

Harmony Gold's claim probably wouldn't stand up in court, but there simply isn't enough money in it for anyone to challenge them.

Oh man, idol music has always been important in Macross, but they just went full magical girl here. Action was great. Wasn't so much a love triangle as a meet cute between the hero and the heroine, but it'll probably develop into a full-blown triangle later on. After all, Frontier gave Ranka a little more screen time than Sheryl early in the series.

This was ridiculous in the best possible way, can't wait to see more.

Now, if only Harmony Gold would go away so we didn't have to rely on subpar fansubs...

Macross Delta to me has a lot to live up to because I love Macross Frontier more than I love Love Live. Delta has a lot to live up to because anyone that I know loves Frontier quite a bit.

As far as the first episode, I'd say it was a good intro to the new series and I'm really hoping that it will get better with every episode.

Mirage is quickly growing on me, and the Aerial Knights' airframes resemble some of the old Saab double-delta fighters, specifically the Draken. Beautiful women and beautiful aircraft are what keep me coming back to Macross, without fail.
Also, ladies and gentlemen,

Deculture has returned.
It makes all the excessive fansub profanity worthwhile.

I just saw it from another source....Too bad the Macross franchise is ....well ..no one is ... you do what you can do....

All I can say is the animation is excellent

and I am happy to see another Macross.
I was excited some familiar voices , among the bad guys was Kimura Ryohei and KENN. Among the Delta guys was Morikawa, Uchiyama and Ishikawa Kaito .
The main character is by Yuma Ichida .Fairly new seiyuu but he is Nagisa in Assasination classroom and Sonic Monkey in BBB He was Ein in the latest Gundam

If anyone is interested, Big West will release the Japanese Bd's with English subtitles. They're probably gauging interest from hardcore Macross fans to purchase directly from Japan and give the leaches at Harmony Gold the finger.

If I was Big West, I'd challenge the HG copyright in a court in Europe. There's no way such a tenuous claim would stand up in a European court (the righs of creators are generally more favored than those of marketers in comparison to the US) and the legal fees are significantly cheaper.

Macross Delta EP 2 / "Audition of Preparedness"

Freyja Wion / Hayate Immelmann are rescued by Mirage Farina Jenius who then lashes out at Hayate for desroting miltary equipment but is countered by him tellin her she made mistakes.

However Freja catches the attention of the Walkure and Hayate from the Delta squad

Both end up om Ragna where they go through some trials to join their prospective Units.

Messer Ihlefeld The ace pilot of the Delta Team Mirage / Arad Molders The leader of the Delta Team recruit Hayate much to the chagin of Farina Jenius



Freja and all the candiates fail the audition for Walkure . She is on a cable car when a passenger has a "Vars "attack kills one perdson and is about to kill Freja who sings the Walkure song to subdue him and works . But it is all staged by the Walkure who faked the whole incident and in fact on board disguised and pass Freja who gets her Walkure clothes. I think they wanted her all along and wanted to test her by herself as she was nervous at the audition.





Opening Theme:"Ichidodake no Koinara" (If I Love Only Once) by Walküre

Ending Theme:

#1: "Ikenai Borderline" (Don't Borderline) by Walküre (ep 0.89)

#2: "Run ga Pikatto Hikattara" ( When the Run Sparkles) by Walküre (eps 2-)

Insert song:
"Ikenai Borderline" ( Forbidden Borderline) by Walküre
"Koi! Halation THE WAR" ( THE WAR) by Walküre

Episode 2

I wish they would just keep their signature song for the OP rather than using a new one.

Decent episode, I personally think Freyja's voice is decent, not great but decent. Also kinda just noticed now but the show has quite a big cast. I wonder if they have enough time to give characterization to the most important characters? Glad to see Freyja joining the team though, she deserved that spot.

It's probably more than just testing her because Mikumo is probably personally curious about her. Freyja is such a Mikumo fangirl.

I just watched episode one the other day and I am shocked to see that people actually thought it was good?! O_O

This is by far the worst Macross series to date, but after Frontier it was pretty obvious the series was starting to go downhill. Frontier was watchable and had some good characters, even though many were just generic throw-ins. But Delta was nothing BUT generic characters. The main heroine is especially uninteresting.

The songs were really bad... just really, really bad. There was one decent song in the first episode. The girl band fighting made no sense whatsoever. Felt like it was just shoved in there and their fight was so boring, my husband and I ended up just skipping over some of it.

The first episode had no drama and was just pointless action scenes shoved together.

The only good thing about the show was the animation, but that is not surprising. Unfortunately, the animation being good and it being Macross really did not give enough reason to watch a second episode.

I like how when an anime does not get simulcast there is a lack of discussions.

Makes me sad.

Same, I have given up on my Precure thread.

Did you like episode 2? I thought it was enjoyable.
