First off this film came before Robotech and it is better, 21 October 2000
Author: MovieCriticMarvelfan from california

The Macross purist who said this is an encore of Robotech,didnt do his homework. Any japanese person who is familiar with Anime will tell you that this movie came out before Robotech. This review should be Number 1 since it will give you almost all the details of the film.

It takes the Robotech theme to the limit. I like Robotech, but since Robotech was targeted at a young audience, the violence and intensity of the fighting wasnt shown in its entirety. Also in Robotech you had the soap opera mentality to it, which kinda made me bored in some episodes. Finally Robotech has a lot of loose ends , the awful Robotech 2 Sentinels movie only made matters worse.

This movie tells the real tale of MACROSS (Robotech was the English name for Macross) and its real conclusions to the characters involved like Max and Miria. Whereas in the tv series they fall in love , in this movie they fight to the death (who falls in love during combat anyway) and its the REAL ending between them.

The mecha designs were and are revolutionary (Tatsunuko Productons and Bandai), and the character development done here is excellent done brilliantly by Shoji Kawamori and NOT Carl Macek. There is absolutely no flaw in this film and thats why 15 yrs to 18 yrs later it still beats the c**p out of American cartoons and bad cartoons in general.

It has never been commercially released except in its birthplace Japan. Luckily several auction sellers sold off copies to lucky buyers.

Dont get me wrong, Robotech is great but the watchful and greedy eyes of corporate people (Harmony Gold) prevented fans from seeing it to the limit. Watch this film, you wont regret it.
