The competition between General Galaxy and Shinsei Industry is meant as a parallel to the real-life competition that was held between Lockheed and Northrop to determine the newest tactical air fighter, the YF-22 or YF-23. The YF-19 valkyrie in macross plus retains several design features of earlier craft, as did the real YF-22, while being cutting-edge. The YF-21 valkyrie's design was heavily influenced by the real YF-23, and both share the stigma of being grand departures from what is considered "standard" aeronautical design in both real and animated worlds.

You're as unbelievable as ever, Isamu.
As foolish and reckless as you've ever been.
Ahh, no one can be SMART and reckless.

I have seen both the series and the movie. Quite simply, "Macross Plus" is one of the best animated presentations I've ever seen. I hold it in high regard along with "Princess Mononoke" as some of the finest examples of both Japanese Anime and the art of animation in general. Animation detail and special effects is astounding. The computer animated effects are used extremely well and complement the cell animation in an excellent way. Character designs are unique, yet, recognisable. Music, especially the pop selections, are brilliant. The sound design is beyond reproach. The dub work for both the English and Japanese languages are excellent. The story concept is very well done and feels original. Although I personally prefer the series, the movie is not without merit, as it still boasts a good story of a slightly different version from the series and has additional footage that's not seen in the series. If you have not seen "Macross Plus", watch it now! If you have judged anime only from observations of "Pokemon", you are depriving yourself and making bad judgement about this magnificent artform. One watch of "Macross Plus" and hopefully you'll agree that the best of anime are no "Pokemons". Films like this should be released all over the world for every person to experience! This is Japanese animation at its finest. It's more than worth the money to rent from your video store. It's worth buying for your video library. - Reinhart
