I've seen everything Macross related besides Macross II, Zero and 7. Anything out of those worth watching?
>>208493037a thousand times 7
You get to watch planes, which other incentive do you need?
>>20849313True. I was going to watch 7 at some point anyway. Just wanted to know if i should give priority to Zero or II because i rarely see anyone talk about them
>>20849303all 3 are shit
>>20849303II is pretty innofensive. I would say its worth the watch because its fairly pretty and has good music, but character wise, its just a half baked SDF/DYRL. Its not really bad, but just can't stand as its own entity.
>>20849303A lot of people hate on it because it's not by the same creator, but Macross II is one of my fav. I watched Robotech back in the day and when I found II it opened my eyes to anime and it was all downhill from there. And I think the Valkyries are some of the best, and Ishtar!!! Story has some weak points but what anime doesn't have some holes? Zero as well isn't bad, but the English translations I've had I think loose something in the meaning. And 7... it expands on the DYRL universe and style, but gods I hate Basara! He's so mean to that poor flower girl, and no guns?! Give me some reflex warheads anyday!
>>208493037 is one of the worst things to come from the 90s and anyone who praises it is blatantly being contrarian. II and Zero are average, inoffensive watches with some great action scenes to prevent being total snoozefests.
7 was the last good Macross entry so definitely watch that.
>>20849443>>20849448hurr durr kill yourselves
>>20849328>Does literally nothing
>>20849303Zero is pretty good.For years I heard people say it was bad, but when I finally got around to it I came away thinking it's one of the best Macross entries.It also has some amazing CG integration for an anime from 2002.
Macross 7 is peak 90s mecha, very good.Just do not binge watch it, go through it an episode a week, like God intended.Zero has some pretty mecha designs and good dogfights.I hate MII's mech designs, so I've never watched it.
>>20849325Zero's final episode is 95% dogfights. What do you think?
>>20849544>x is peak yFuck off normalfag.
>>20849303Watch Zero. And then the rest.
>>20849544It's honestly not that bad, the first 17 episodes are the really slow and somewhat dull ones. After the arrival of Sivil the story rapidly ramps up.
>>20849464She listened to his song.
>>20853241>After the arrival of Sivil the story rapidly ramps up>After the worst character in all of Macross shows up, the show somehow socks lessYeah, okay buddy. This is why nobody takes macucks fans seriously.
>>20849303All of them.M2 is okay, kind of dips in budget by it's end, only real downside is that if you're a continuity wonk, it's non-canonZero is kind neat, has some nice ideas buried in it, has unrefined CG animation that's kind of proto-Frontier, kind of slumps to an ending? Was a tough watch in it's day because of the pacing and release schedule, better now when you can binge it.7 is fun, builds a ton of world stuff that everything after it follows on with, is heavily prioritized towards it's music and characters rather than mecha action, it has notoriously high use of stock footage. Also suffers a very slow formulaic start that gives an initially kind of bad impression. The status quo only shifts with an event at the end of it's first 13 episodes, iirc.
>>20854197>it has notoriously high use of stock footage. Also suffers a very slow formulaic start that gives an initially kind of bad impressionThere's also no score. Excluding a couple intros in the early episodes (which is just recycled Plus music) they relied solely on using Firebomber music. So you either had no background music or Firebomber when your teeth weren't clenched in preparation.
>>20849303Just watch all of it. If you can get through Macross, DYRL, Frontier, and Delta you can easily stomach II, Zero, and 7.
>>20849303II is worth a go. The writing might be dog ass but the girls are hot, the action is exciting and frenetic, and it's shown in the same crisp style as DYRL. Short as hell too
