"Accessible" might as well HG's own heavy edits and inserts instead of as originally aired in Japan. For most it feels like the end of the world because with HG and damn Tatsunoko cockblocking it further and wanting to keep it a cash cow while distorting the facts, this consortium prevented fans from obtaining legitimate and licensed copies of the saga on a worldwide scale -- they're becoming older (now in their 40s and 50s), getting tired of trying to put up with fansubs when they want the real deal, uncut and unblemished, on a Blu-Ray, and earnings and recognition go to the original and legitimate Japanese creators and producers. It's still pure injustice, a blatant land grab.

It's a terrible, long story of what is one of the worst intellectual property rights complication in anime history; see under entry "M" in this page:

Well, it's been a long time coming but I finally got to watch the seventh episode of Macross Frontier! :D

THIS is why I watch Macross for the most part, for the sorties in the Valkyries and they did not disappoint. The fact that it was taking place during a Sheryl Nome concert didn't distract at all and the visuals from the concert as well as the combat in outer space are both stellar in performance. If I can only nitpick just a little, Catherine Glass is probably the most annoying of the Bridge personnel seeing how she keeps complaining about everything going on, and I thought Sheryl's prima donna attitude in the first episode made her the queen of annoyances! :facepalm:

The combination of music and action is only going to get better the further you get into the series. It's one of the things Frontier does best.

As for annoying characters, I remember from the time I watched it (in the short period fan-subbed episodes were available on Youtube and they were playing whack-a-mole with the uploaders :D ) that I personally thought Sheryl was the most annoying one, while others got fed up with Ranka...

I will just say this for those of you who watched Macross Delta the television version and came out unsatisfied: Do what I just did and sit through the Passionate Walkure compilation movie. You won't be disappointed! ^_^

Let me elaborate for those curious of what I experienced:

Freyja and her relationship with Hayate takes up nearly 100 percent of any main romances, Mirage is really more of a compatriot than a rival. Messer is given the sendoff we all wished for in the series in which he gets to be by Kaname's side when he passes away. Mikumo still has that Mary Sue quality about her but isn't given much time to gloat over it seeing this is a 2 hour movie so more sympathy is felt for when she and Walkure is kidnapped and Roid tries to use her to mind control the entire galaxy. Seeing the film's end be Messer's jellyfish funeral with "Giraffe Blues" being sung was a bonafide way to cap off the compilation. If there is anything worth nitpicking about would be Freyja's debut concert, the mixture of 3D with 2D animation didn't blend in well but that's only for this scene alone. Overall, I give it a 8/10!

A little while ago, I watched the eighth episode of Frontier and I have to say this is so far my favorite episode. I haven't laughed so genuinely in a long time over the sequence of events that took place. The beginning with Ranka singing as the carrot girl in front of a store with that catchy little jingle, Ozma implying Cathy has wrinkles and her double checking her mirror when he leaves, to the highlight humor of Ai-kun running off with Sheryl's panties and the resulting chase the entire school body does just to get their dirty hands on it :devil: , it's pure comedic gold! :lol:
