At the time, Shoji Kawamori had no interest in doing any more followups to SDF Macross, although Big West and Bandai pressed him to. In the end, they decided to do it themselves. Studio Nue was not involved, and of the original staff, only Haruhiko Mikimoto (the character designer) and one of the original screenwriters actually signed onto the project. See more »

I thought this movie was very good. Unlike most Anime I've seen, it has a good story and believable characters. The violence isn't gratuitous--every fight scene means something. Also, the songs, while cheesy at times, were infecting...I often found myself inadvertently swaying in time with them.
The only thing that bugged me with the movie was the English dubbing. The main characters were all done well, but a lot of the supporting characters are very emotionless and halting. It got very annoying, very fast.
