Storyline

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. Written by Christopher E. Meadows <cmeadows@nyx.cs.du.edu>

Brilliant
24 April 2001 | by (Istanbul, Turkiye) – See all my reviews

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.
