Super Space Fortress Macross (1984)
[Hikaru tries to convince Minmay to sing to defeat the Zentradi]
Lynn Minmay: You can't win a war by singing! Stay with me, if we're going to die anyway...
Hikaru Ichijo: It's not just for us. It's for everyone onboard Macross.
Lynn Minmay: That has nothing to do with us! Why aren't we the only two in the universe? I wish everyone would die except you and me!
[Hikaru slaps Minmay, as a panoply of war's destruction plays across the screen.]
Hikaru Ichijo: Sempai died. Kakizaki died. So many have died. They had plans for peace. You can still sing, can't you?
[An explosion blows off an armored shutter behind Hikaru and Minmay. They watch, horrified, as a Valkyrie fighter is blown to pieces in front of them.]
Lynn Minmay: I'm sorry, Hikaru. I don't know what came over me. I chose to become a singer. If I don't now, my mother and father's spirits will never forgive me. Me, I'll sing with all my heart!
