This takes off after the 'failed' pilot movie? It may be quite a contrast then with the old style animation 15 years ago then jumps to the current day CGI enhanced animation. Not that I've got any issues about that. Macross Zero CGI mecha battles look awesome - the Valkyries look more advance than those in the original Macross ;D
correct. the sentinel books were abt SDF-3... but apparently, it was done in the same manner as what the jap's were doing now with Macross Zero or Macross Plus / Seven... independent production! I mean, you've seen how in Macross Zero, the VF's seemed more changgih than that in the Original Macross itself!
So, this new saga is suppose to be the "official" saga... should there be discreparancies between Sentinels and SC, SC shall prevail altho the Harmony Gold says they'll try to co-exists together.
I suppose because of this reason, the name was changed as well...
