Someone had to say it.

Fact 1: Macross is super dramatical.

For reals? She’ll make someone’s wish come true, and all she wants in return is to see them smile? I don’t know who she is, but that’s some heavy shit.

But from the way she phrased it, it’s almost like she’s talking to… me. If so, fuck yeah I’m on board. I’ve always wanted to be in an anime.

So what does Madoka have? One girl being sad cuz she sucks at golf, and a bunch of other girls whose emotions don’t matter cuz they just get wiped out with every reset?

Whoopdy-fucking-do
Whoopdy-fucking-do.

 

Fact 2: Better title

Magical Madoka Meguca Magica? That’s a fucking mouthful. How am I supposed to remember that shit?

Why is the title in fucking Italian?
Why is this even in fucking Italian?

Selector Infected Macross is much more sensible, so maybe people will actually bother to watch it.

 

Fact 3: More moe

selector infected K-On

The closest Madoka got to this was… oh, not even within a goddamn inch. Vixtor: Macross.

 

Fact 4: Cutest Kyubey

Macross:

All she does is squeak noises 'n shit. Super kawaii.
All she does is squeak ‘n shit. Super kawaii.

 

Madoka:

Truth be told, she's cuter. But she ain't canon, so Macross wins.
Truth be told, this Kyubey’s cuter. But she ain’t canon, so Macross wins.

 

Fact 5: More lesbian pairings

Number of potential lesbians in Madoka: I dunno, 6?

Number of potential lesbian pairings in Madoka: 6! = 720

 

Number of potential lesbians in Macross: Infinite

There's 5 options in this screenshot alone.
There’s 5 options in this screenshot alone.

Number of potential lesbian pairings in Macross: Infinite! = Double Infinite

It’s been a while since I’ve taken Stats, but this is almost probably close to accurate.

 

Fact 6: Better battle worlds

Clouds floating down from the sky? That's thematically sound as fuck.
Cards floating down from the sky? That’s thematically sound as fuck.

Madoka had like cake worlds and shit. Lame.

 

Fact 8: An emotional connection to the viewer

Macross simply connects with its audience better than Madoka ever could. For me, it managed to cross the full gamut of the human experience in the first episode alone. Some of the emotions I experienced were:

  • Surprise that the trailer I had watched was not an accurate representation of the show.
  • Sadness that there was still more of the episode to go.
  • Fear that the episode would not end.
  • Happiness when I hit the ED and knew it was almost ever.
  • Anger when the episode finally ended and I realized there were 11 more to go.

I don’t think Madoka made me feel anything but a desire to look up doujins. And according to Wikipedia, that ain’t a human emotion. Point to Macross.

Hell, I even found myself communicating with the show much more often than I did for Madoka.

Please, for the love of god, don't.
“Please, for the love of god, don’t!” – Dark_Sage

Macross with the sweep.

 

 

Verdict: Macross wins.

And that’s why I don’t have to eat my words for saying this show would be good.

Nailed it like a Jew to a crucifix.

  1. Infinite! = infinite * (infinite – 1) [still infinite] * (infinite – 2) [still infinite] * (infinite – 3) [still infinite–you get the picture]

    Basically, it’s infinite infinites multiplied to each other.

  2. The real Macross actually is better than Madoka though.

    Wixoss probably won’t be because it doesn’t have that cool SHAFTy witchtrip animation.

  3. Pfft.
    1) Everyone knows magic lesbian wings are high-tier.
    2) I carefully watched the first two episodes of ManlycardCross Revolution and there was only one vague outline of wings at the beginning! In contrast HappyjoyMagica Rebellion had not just one but two sets of magic lesbian wings and one was all shining and shit also which is -4 to THAC0.
    3) Eclairs are delicious.
    4) Your arguments are all invalid.

    Game set and match Dark_Saga better luck in fall semester.
