    Aw man, I just out about this today via Twitter!

    https://twitter.com/fathomevents/status/1452001892486189056

    HOLY MUSICAL BEANS, AN OFFICIAL DOMESTIC RELEASE OF A MACROSS MOVIE! :eek: 

    Yeah, it's subbed, but given that A, Macross Plus is considered the GOAT of all the Macross installments but B, Macross has been in lawsuit hell no thanks to those leeches at Harmony Gold, so SCREW IT, I'LL TAKE THIS!

    Yea it does, I like the head sculpt too. Noticed the logo on the spine of the fighter is either the same or very similar to the 1 on Max’s YF-29.

    I believe it’s the same Itasha on Max’s 29 and Mirage’s 31ax @rob_charb and Shin. I think that it might in reference up to Jenuis Air that was shown in the Delta series.

    Amen, yes it is. Unlike the garbage known as 2, 7, Frontier or Delta. It's even got the best designed mech that's been milked for future series, but non on It's level:ev:

    Funny enough with the exception of 2 all those shows you listed polled higher than Plus did in that Japanese poll from 2019. I didn't like Plus that much, I'd ranked it the 5th best entry in the franchise, but I'm very happy it's the start of the rest of Macross being shown outside Japan. I'm more excited for 7, Frontier, and Delta to be available here since those are my favorite. More Macross is a good thing either way and I'll be buying a ticket for Plus when it's available. I want to show Big West support.

    If any are planning to get the DX Solo GPB Armor or the DX 1J+GBP from Manda, it goes very fast!

    I've never been a big subscriber to the "It's popular so it's good" argument. I'll use the last three Star Wars movies as an example.

    Always wondered why M7/Frontier/Delta were even popular in Japan.

    Guess Japan fans are just weird that way, I guess, but I'm pretty sure they also think we're weird for liking M-Plus alot more than these others.
