Col. Millard Johnson: You can't carry challenge and recklessness within in the same pocket. Do you know who said that, Lieutenant?

Col. Millard Johnson: I did. That's the lesson I learned.

a great anime with great animation
22 February 2001 | by See all my reviews

when i first saw this, i was amazed. i expected so much from shinichiro watanabe and got everything i was expecting. this has the classic rival-love story along with kick ass mech fighting. even my dad, who has only seen akira and the cockpit, thought that the yf-21 brain control was a cool idea. the animation is incredible, something you would expect from watanabe. if you liked robotech or any other macross related element, then see this.
