It has better music and looks 100X better than Gundam 00. Trailer


I hope we get some new kits out of this, hopefully 1/100 scale

Hm... cell shaded CG mecha = UGH!

But besides that, it looks pretty sweet. Definately nice animations.

This.. is a new tv series?  About f-ing time!!  Macross always did carry interesting storyline (minus the Firebomber) and this series has a much better looking character design than does Gundam 00 to boot.  I've never been excited about an anime series since God knows when, but I'm actually ancitipating this one!

Just found this thread that has a scan of VF-25, the new mech for Macross Frontier which is set to air next year.  Actually reminds me of YF-19, although the wings are not swept forward...

Also love the character design :)  I'm glad the main guy is not some 15 year old who drives an invincible mech.  :P

mabbe she won't be portrayed as so child-like in the actual anime... I think she is the third leg in the love triangle?

The lolita characters seems to be a recurring theme in the Macross series. Lol. Oh and the VF-25 looks badass. Lets hope Yamato makes a 1/60 or 1/48 figure for it.

why is there always a need to compare things? especially when they are completely different

00 has been quite good so far, and Macross F is also looking good. its always better to look at how a show stands on its own.

Well, I really loved Macross but...I'm pretty skeptical of this. Shows like Gundam spin off really well, but Macross...not so much since the appeal of the original show was really with the characters.

Although it took me nearly a decade to open my mind to it, I eventually fell seriously in love with Macross 7. Its now one of my favorite shows, especially Dynamite. Zero was a huge let down though. Nice budget, but it went no place and had no likable characters and no heart.

This show looks pretty, but I have this vague feeling that all those cool character designs have no life behind them (see: Gundam 00). Also, I really despise CG mecha.
