The Best “Oba-san”!

Today we’ve got our third and final Macross card! This is of Misa Hayase, a bridge lieutenant of the SDF-1 Macross. Oh, I don’t think I actually mentioned this, but the SDF-1 Macross is this ENORMOUS space vessel that holds thousands and thousands of crew members and civilians, that latter […]

50 (Minus 14) Shades of Fuji!
