• Before making a single edit, Tropedia EXPECTS our site policy and manual of style to be followed. Failure to do so may result in deletion of contributions and blocks of users who refuse to learn to do so. Our policies can be reviewed here.
  • All images MUST now have proper attribution, those who neglect to assign at least the "fair use" licensing to an image may have it deleted. All new pages should use the preloadable templates feature on the edit page to add the appropriate basic page markup. Pages that don't do this will be subject to deletion, with or without explanation.
  • All new trope pages will be made with the "Trope Workshop" found on the "Troper Tools" menu and worked on until they have at least three examples. The Trope workshop specific templates can then be removed and it will be regarded as a regular trope page after being moved to the Main namespace. THIS SHOULD BE WORKING NOW, REPORT ANY ISSUES TO Janna2000, SelfCloak or RRabbit42. DON'T MAKE PAGES MANUALLY UNLESS A TEMPLATE IS BROKEN, AND REPORT IT THAT IS THE CASE. PAGES WILL BE DELETED OTHERWISE IF THEY ARE MISSING BASIC MARKUP.

Macross Frontier revisited?

Astro Plan is an Animesque Chinese series first released in January 2010. It is notorious for generating a lot of publicity not because of its plot, but rather because it is obviously copying popular Japanese anime series such as Macross Frontier, Gundam Seed, and Mobile Suit Gundam 00, and also because much of its initial promotional artwork consists of blatantly traced and copied artwork from other sources. See also promotional poster at the left.

The plot (shamelessly ripped from The Other Wiki, as seems appropriate for this series, and expanded with information from the Youtube trailer that actually manages to partially contradict the main plot synopsis provided by the production company):

In the distant future, mankind has begun to venture into space to find a new home after Earth's environment succumbs to a meteor rain causing massive destruction global warming. During their voyage, the Gundam Seed Archangel Macross space migration fleet encounters the Varja an alien race from the planet Iccus. As raiders of natural resources, the aliens are bent on galactic domination. To combat the threat, six young fighters are recruited into the Sentai Sky Arrow Flight Team and are equipped with transformable Macross Valkyries Type Yi Gundams fighter planes.

Alternatively, Astro Plan can be seen as a truly massive intentional unintentional Shout-Out to the other series mentioned on this page.

Tropes used in Astro Plan include:
