Trivia

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.

It doesn't get any better then this.
7 August 2001 | by (Toronto, Canada) – See all my reviews

The Animation is with out par, Character/Mecha designs are inspired, great music, and the story is amazing.

Basically it's a love triangle between childhood friends, who still having somethings to work out... Set in the future world of Eden, a sci fi world that almost seems possible. Although it is set in the same universe as Macross, it was conceived as a new project and made to fit into the existing history of the Macross TV series. So if you haven't seen Macross or only know Robotech you wont be lost in this story.

If you love this series, check out Vision of Escaflowne (Make sure it the uncut/unedited version.. The best choice is subtitled). Some of the same creators worked on both project and who can resist Medieval Mecha.
