Macross: Another Song
Today marks the start of our Robotech/Macross table top campaign. Seth is playing a micronized Zentraedi who really hates being with humans but likes the fact siding with them gives him freedom to have individuality and identity. Aldwin plays a pure human who hopes to gain some fame and respect from the others soon. While Sam plays a half-breed who hides the fact she is one for fear of ridicule and racism.

The game is set 80 years after the movie "Do You Remember Love" with many ideas liberally inspired if not outright taken from the Macross II: Lovers Again manga/anime which frankly I prefer over Macross 7 or Robotech. Although I do admit I loved Robotech, the whole plot of the Robotech Masters and E.B.S.I.S. just turns the whole thing into a hyper convoluted plot. And the time-warping ending just reeks too much of Star Trek for my liking.

So its back to the Valkyries, the Gerwalks and the Melzendi... back to the Marduk, the Emulators and the Lisa Hayase... and back to the Yak de Culture instead of "Protoculture!!! Argh!!!"

Its Macross alright.

"Shao Pai Long!"
