GOOD DAY FALC MEMBERS! This may be too late already but let us still greet you a BELATED HAPPY NEW YEAR, at least. We’re having our very first newsletter to start the New Year. Hoooray~ We tried our best to shorten this as much as possible. And now, first things first:

FILIPINO ANIME LOVERS CLUB (FALC)
FALC, as the name says, is a MAL club for Filipino anime lovers – pure or half – and for everyone who’s interested to know more about the Filipino culture. Visit once in a while and leave a comment here. Who knows, maybe you’ll be able to meet someone in your area who’s pretty much the same as you – one who loves anime. We would really be glad to see the club alive with your comments. Don’t forget to be friendly, ok? Also, in here, you could find different threads that may catch some of your attention.




Here's a quick guide! Just click the buttons above. Each number represents a topic in the FALC thread.

Click the picture below to visit the chat. See you there~


ATTENTION: January 21-22 (Otaku Expo 2012)
Visit this site for the schedule of activities and click #7 if you want to meet other con/expo goers!

PS. There's a longer and a more explained version of this newsletter here if you ever want to see/read it that is HAHAHA Thank you for reading this one, btw. Have a nice day and take care minna~

I found your blog about Kawamori stating that Macross is a series within a series to be very interesting. I don't place myself to deep into canon myself either. I like it when canon matches up for the continuity of a story. The film within a film dialogue still allows for this continuity to continue so I'm fine with it. As for Macross 7, I've always looked at it as satire, so it being a t.v. series within the original Macross could make complete sense along with Macross Zero and Plus. I still found that Frontier did a great job of including the past themes/canon from most if not all of the other Macross material to make it feel very familiar and nostalgic, it instantly hooked me into the story.

As for the issue with C&C and many of the impossible standards that so many put on shows is funny to me also. I've also wondered if there is a limit to the amount the club will recognize from specific creators. That is something that the admins predetermine behind the scenes. It appears that they've decided that kill the induction of Sky Crawlers, which is a wonderful movie in my opinion. I'd also add that Sky Crawlers doesn't appear to be a film many people enjoyed as much as I did, like Macross 7 for many westerners.

Maybe I chose the wrong word, not emo, narm. Prepare for Gundam SEED (+ Destiny) levels of ... LOL, whatever it was people hated. I guess I'm just trying to defending the manga, but they're just the same, so what I'm really defending is myself for liking it :\ It won't really be worth reading the manga if you dislike the anime, but there's a sidestory if you're interested, that is absolutely WTF-ishly gorny.

Hi again. I'm sorry if I come across as pushy, but I would like to say that you really ought to read the SaiKano manga to fully appreciate the story, as the anime is turns the angst up to eleven. Although it isn't exaggerated in the anime you have to sit through all the awkwardness while it's easier to filter out in the manga, paging from one page to another. It's awfully indulging in emo, and it's kind of why I chose to read it in the first place, but it's more tolerable in the manga.

I recommend you to read the Battle Royale book, and it's wonderful if you read it the way you would with a light novel, not expecting anything more than entertainment without much intellectual quality. I loved it, but then again, my taste is not the best in the world. Just to mention, Kiriyama is still gurotastic, but is much less of a Mary Sue (kind of) and it's handled with more poignancy (also kind of).

I should than you, WLR has inspired me to give Macross a chance and to rewatch Eureka Seven with a new perspective and not just dismiss them.

/TL;DR bordering on TMI.
