12 Moments in Anime: The Macross Experience
I’m not too sure how I got started with Macross. I kinda remember seeing either SDF or 7 at a very young age, but that’s about it. I do remember playing a Macross 8-bit game that had Shao Pai Lon looping, but at the time, I didn’t know.
Fastforward to 2008, when the show started to air. I caught the first 4 episodes, and that was it. Until I heard about how it would rock my pants silly. And then I. JIZZED. IN. MY. PANTS.
And then I accidently everything Macross (Okay, not Macross II, but for a good reason).
I can’t believe I missed out a whole epochal franchise until recently. EPOCHAL MAN. EPOCHAL.
Unlike most people, I watched Macross in reverse. After Frontier, it was Macross 7, then Plus, then SDF Macross. I think. I dunno though.
I’m still not too sure why I like 7 over the entire series. Plus had a much better narrative and SDF was just mindblowingly good. Frontier was basically my gateway Macross (for good reason) and I’m still partial to Macross 7. Maybe it’s because it doesn’t take itself too seriously.
I dunno, but man, Macross is one cool show.
Also, Alto X VF-25 is my OTP.
