i’ll take my chance with aliens before i mess w/ whatever is at the bottom of the ocean
Pretty sure Sharon’s music is in at least 1 version of ep 1, she is mentioned in movie 1 and Isamu is in movie 2. MII is not considered a part of the Macross Universe because Kawamori wasn’t involved.
Music from Plus and II are all over M7, too! And of course Basara’s music gets a bunch of appearances in Frontier, so if you want to count music as a sort of cameo, then it’s all over the place, and I would frankly be more surprised if the new show didn’t reuse anything. Definitely something I’m looking forward too.
As far as II goes, it’s part of the universe, just maybe not part of the main timeline. but it’s been included in all of the recent cross canon stuff except Macross 30, (Chronicle, Triangle Frontier PSP games, super dimension seminar, etc) so I counted it anyway. It breaks my heart that MII doesn’t get more respect, really, it’s one of my favorites, but oh well. It’s more like the main timeline kind of just ignores that II happened, but it’s still an official work that isn’t completely forgotten about ;3;
