In the year 1999, an alien battle fortress crash lands on an island in the South Pacific. Over the next ten years, mankind repairs and refits this fortress, using the advanced "robotechnology" found aboard her to create fighter planes that can transform into giant robots. As soon as the repaired fortress is ready for launch, the aliens to whom she belongs finally discover its location. Thus begins a series of wars that will devastate the planet Earth. This television series was created by Carl Macek from three Japanese television series, Super Dimensional Fortress Macross, Super Dimensional Cavalry Southern Cross and Genesis Climber Mospeada.

The decision to create this series came from Carl Macek who was disappointed at the crude alterations made to Gatchaman (1972) in the creation of Battle of the Planets (1978). He wanted to import an anime series of his own and have it faithfully translated for the Western market. However, the best series he could obtain, Chôjikû Yôsai Macross (1982), had only 36 episodes, which was far too few for the standard 65-episode syndication package that the North American TV market demanded. To fix that problem, Macek decided to acquire two similarly-themed series, Chôjikû kidan Sazan Kurosu (1984) and Genesis Climber Mospeada (1983). He then connected the series as a grand epic of succeeding generations of characters in the series that are forced to fight three successive wars over an alien energy source called Protoculture that the enemy is desperate to capture.

All I can say that I was amazed by the story after I've watched the 36 episodes one by another. I was a child when I first met ROBOTECH. It was on tv every sunday and I remember I couldn't wait the episodes and every sunday morning I was happy to watch ROCOTECH.
After ( I tink 11 years ) I've found 36 episodes of Robotech. Yesterday I've spent 12 and a half hours, I'm now exhausted because at 7:00 AM I've managed the finish all episodes with a smile on my face.
The story is so briiliant that it shows whatever we live in the real world as male's and females. I can hardly believe that such emotional scenes can be made in an animation series.
