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?
Fact 2: Better title
Magical Madoka Meguca Magica? That’s a fucking mouthful. How am I supposed to remember that shit?
Selector Infected Macross is much more sensible, so maybe people will actually bother to watch it.
Fact 3: More moe
The closest Madoka got to this was… oh, not even within a goddamn inch. Vixtor: Macross.
Fact 4: Cutest Kyubey
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
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
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.
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.

Oy vey, that jab at the Chosen People at the end was anti-semetic! I demand an apology post haste, Goy_Sage.

More like this
But that clearly ignores the possibility for a threesome or higher.
Shit was classic.
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.
But computing all that was more fun than watching an episode of this show.
>Number of potential lesbian pairings in Macross: Infinite! = Double Infinite
Silly Dark Sage, doesn’t even know Set Theory.
And this definitely wasn’t meant to be a response to elenrod but oh well.
Ah, set theory. So we’ll have to ask DS if ‘infinite’ refers to aleph-null or the cardinality of the continuum. But since he referred to Jews at the end he must be thinking of the former.
Things would get a bit cramped if you squeezed continuum many people into a three-fold, so I’m going to say countably many people.
In which case there are continuum many pairings.
That’s true. Even Sazae-san would have trouble fitting uncountably infinite characters into their storyline.
One of those girls in the picture under fact 5 looks like a real bitch. :<
She looks like she’d like a bone.
I’ll get my coat.
Satou x Okada > Shinbou x Urobuchi
I almost thought you meant M3 there.
J.C.Staff > Shaft
Takara Tomy > Good Smile Company
Kanon Wakeshima > ClariS
Warner Ent. Japan > Aniplex & SME Records
The real Macross actually is better than Madoka though.
Wixoss probably won’t be because it doesn’t have that cool SHAFTy witchtrip animation.
I dropped Wixoss. Tell me if it gets good.
Too early to tell for me. I’ll have to watch another ep or two.
This is Your Opinion.
Not a Fact.
Welcome to the internet. Enjoy your stay.
i’d like to retire pls
Where the fark is fact 7?
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.
