Macross Delta 7: Behind Enemy Lines

Whew~  Caught up!  Didn't believe I could do it, did you?

Walkure Update: I always want to use Mikumo but these two keep finding their way back here, for like...obvious reasons.

Macross Delta 6: Decision Overload

Walkure Update: OTP status reading: still adorable. 

Also, out of costume Kaname might just have the best style of the entire group.  Or maybe I just love her taste in hats.

Macross Delta 5: Dancing in the Moonlight

Walkure Thoughts: The love triangle is irrelevant.  Right now the only pairing that matters is Makina and Reina.

Second Thoughts: Just a shot of Mikumo being a true gangster, nbd.

Macross Delta 4: A Shocking Debut Show

So I'm four weeks behind on this, and the only way to apologize is by shotgunning and catching up inside a single week.  Let's see how THAT works out~

Mikumo Watch: A few people complained about this scene from episode 4, claiming that Mikumo's actually a bitch.  I don't think that's what this is.  Mikumo is clearly nuts--earlier in the episode she's somewhere on a hill completely naked, pondering the meaning of life and music.  Music is absolutely everything to her, and while everyone *else* finds Freyja's nervous newbie gimmick amusing, Mikumo is NOT having that shit.  Fuck around with her life, and cute or not, you get the boot.

E3 Pre-Show Thoughts: Sony

Ah, here we go.  I placed this last for a few reasons--it's the last conference of E3, it's my favorite company and I believe in saving the best for last, and finally?   It's downright a pain in the butt to predict.  But, time to give it that college try.   If you haven't checked them out--I did Nintendo's, Ubisoft's, Microsoft's, EA's, and even an imaginary Square-Enix conference already.  Give them a click, then come back here and read (even more of) my insanity.

E3 Pre-Show Thoughts: Square-Enix

This is the one I'm least sure about.  Fact is, Square-Enix's 2015 show came as a complete surprise even if it made total sense.  Between their Western and Eastern branches, they had more than enough games to show off at their own conference.  And if we're being honest, they still do so this is my attempt at what a E3 Conference for them would look like.  Of course, this is Square we're talking about here so let's go ahead and toss any attempt at guessing the order of things out.

E3 Pre-Show Thoughts: EA

Part Four of my E3 Pre-Show Thoughts.  (Go check out Parts One, Two, and Three if you haven't.) EA's a lot less interesting than some of the other companies.  Most of their games aren't even a surprise anymore--they just flat out announced the vast majority of what we'll see at EA Play, their pre-show conference.  Still, I'm not mad.  For two years in a row, EA's had the worst pre-show press conference possible.  In 2014 it was basically just Dragon Age, sports games, and titles that were so woefully unready they were legit showing concept art.  And last year?  ...Pele.  I don't think I need to go into anymore detail.  Fortunately, that ends this year as EA's potential showing for the year is actually quite impressive!  If they fuck it up this time it's all on them.  Last year they had about a dozen games on deck for a show that ran about 90 minutes.  If you presume they've got about the same for this year, then it should look something like this:
