Did You Know?

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.See more »

Cool Macross Side-Story, 5 February 1999
Author: mrsatan from Earth

This wasn't what I expected; it was not the (literally) earth shattering epic of humans versus bad aliens like the original. This sequal is more of a "gaiden" side-story set with in the same universe. Kind of focuses on some of the "little guys"; test pilots and engineers. But that's not to say that their lives are not as interesting. This is a much more intense, complex, and overall more grown-up story than the original. It's really a solid sci-fi story and would recommend it to anyone. And, one does not have to be familiar with the Macross universe to watch it!
