I have a bone to pick with Macross/Robotech. It was pretty cool in the beginning with the Earth being blown up and everybody dying and shit - sure, Minmei was an annoying, needy prima-donna, but every episode wasn't about her.
Now I've come across Macross 7. Sure I thought, let's round out the Macross storyline by watching this series.
DAMN YOU STUDIO NUE DAMN YOU DAMN YOU TO HELL!
IRC chat log - sums up my burning hatred for this:
<Ido_Alpha_Omega>[I] thought Macross/Robotech was about cool-ass transforming fighters blasting the shit out of each other in space... turns out it's not... it's about gay-ass pop stars trying to sing the enemy into complacency
<Ido_Alpha_Omega> Macross Plus was okay, but that damn Sharon Apple...
<Ido_Alpha_Omega> at least the songs weren't that cheezy
<Ido_Alpha_Omega> not like Basara's or Minmei's garbage
<Ido_Alpha_Omega> there's this big mexican guy in Macross 7 that plays a keyboard guitar... so laaaaaaaame
<Ido_Alpha_Omega> and the main character's fighter doesn't shoot bullets, no, it shoots fucking pods with speakers on them so he can SING to the enemy combatants
<Ido_Alpha_Omega> WHAT THE FUCKING FUCK!?!?!?!
<Ido_Alpha_Omega> I'VE SEEN SHOUJO BETTER THAN THIS!
<Ido_Alpha_Omega> oh wow... the main character just stopped a fight between two men with his singing
<Ido_Alpha_Omega> and the enemy's supreme commander looks and sounds like a woman, but it's a guy!
<Ido_Alpha_Omega> damn femguy fantasizing Japanese!
Et il est un jour arrivé
Marteler le ciel
Et marteler la mer
Et la mer avait embrassé moi
