New Macross Anime Announced – “The First in 6 Years”

macross-beach-frontier

It transpires the recent rerun of Macross Frontier was worth fans watching for the umpteenth time after all – the finale ended with a surprise announcement of a new Macross series.

Details are utterly lacking but the wording of the announcement is at least fairly clear that this will be an entirely new iteration of the Macross franchise rather than a mere remake, remaster, or effort to rekindle interest in the now fairly moribund if hugely successful Macross F franchise.

    the macross i liked really well is the zero-3, that was very interesting but macross frontier annoys me to the core, all those "WAKE UP GIRLS/AMERICAN IDOL" stuff that frontier showed really pissed me off.

    I hope that they do an awesome anime out of this. I really hope it's not a fucking piece of shit like Frontier. It's been already 20 years since the last (and only) Macross sequel worth of it's name aired. I'm frustrated as shit that every new sequel is a new vomit; I demand Mikimoto back at the character designs and Kawamori taking the project seriously for a change.

    Just to be clear: the last and only Macross sequel worth of it's name is Plus, of course. Macross 7 is another garbage.

    Macross Frontier was fantastic compared to Macross 7. I'm sorry but it is true.

    The "Princess" dumbass and the moe hybrid zentran ruined alot that series.

    Really maybe be a new saga, new chars and the classic "dont fucking know what happened to Hikaru, Misa, and the rest....they are Urban Legends desu".

    The only thing to i see new about the classic franchise is Choujikuu Yousai Macross The First but only have for the moment 3 vols trad.

    Moe hybrid? Klan featured in the absolute moment of the series. I don't think I've ever been more upset watching an anime than I was the moment Michael dies, and the music was perfect that moment (Diamond Crevasse). Now go watch episode 21 and tell me she's moe....Klan puts on a fighting display the likes of which Macross had never seen...she kills THOUSANDS of Bajira. Klan rules. She may be moe when she's little but un-microned she makes Milia seem weak.

    BTW, its known what happened to the original chars.....Misa/Hikaru get married and have a daughter Miku. They're all on the SDF-2 which disappeared in 2016.

    No, really? We all know they disappeared in 2016; what we don't know is what happened AFTER 2016. 2016 was only 4 years after the war.
    About Frontier, every character is forgettable except of Klan and Michael. What a piece of shit that anime. I really don't want to remember it.

    He talk about ranka lols, Ranka is a Hybrid zentran-human, Klank is zentran 100%, and is true Ranka and Alto ruined alot the series, Alto the dumbass naive char who have the most stupid reason to be a pilot, and Ranka, a moe who dont have any interesting except act like a moe to the fandom, be tons better a triangle about Sheryl-Michael-Klank or Ozma-sheryl-Cathy Glass.

    Pd: Miku? wtf are you talking lol, dont exist a char in macross who have that named? damm this lols of today my god.

    Pd2: Lol in this site any dumbass put + to a commentary whiout understand any, this site is near to be the new Yahoo answers.

    It would be amazing if they did a series about what happened to Hikaru, Misa and that colony ship that disppeared. There is so much that they could do.

    Hell imagine, that ship disappeared because it encountered a PROTOCULTURE ship

    *GASP*

    That would be quite ironic since Battletech copied a lot of its early mechs from Macross...

    Or they could take a page out of Battletech & have the descendants of the crew come back to conquer for the restoration of peace, freedom, & idol-singing to humanity.

    Oh you don't like moe? Well it fucking sells. Guess what they want to do? Sell.

    Get ready for pink Macross and an idol who rides it while singing. And the enemies will likely be some dipshit bug or boring creature.

    Bye Macross as we knew it! Bye great story telling and awesome characters!

    Hello moetard faggotry.

    Not likely. Its been a long time since Frontier was first announced and the one reason I was interested was to see if the girl chosen as Ranka, Megumi Nakajima, would become a rising star similar to Mari Iijima for the original series. Don't know how it turned out because I never got around to watching Frontier, partly because I had mix feelings for Macross Zero on whether it had the spirit of the series or was the antithesis of it: Seriously, I got so turned off by the final episode that not even Shadow Chronicles could outdo it.
    Speaking of final episode; if I remember correctly, is Frontier the one that people hated how it ended because of the "Choice-D" decision by the main guy character? By that I mean the guy had 4 choices: A)picks Girl 1, B)picks Girl 2, C)chooses Both Girls, & D)chooses Neither Girl.

    Macross can't be Macross if there are no idols to sing your enemies into friendship mode.

    Macross is about defeating or demoralizing your enemy by overwhelming them with your own culture.
