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 »

Trying to be a follow-up to the original Macross series, this instalment was basically an expanded copy of the 1984 "Macross: Ai, Oboete Imasu Ka?" movie, with a few gimmicks thrown in. It was done without Shoji Kawamori's collaboration.
The mecha style isn't too bad, but lacks some of Shoji Kawamori's finesse (expectable). The plot is sub-par and doesn't rise to the challenge. The animation, on many occasions, is disappointing. The English dub is BAD. The Japanese voice acting is ok, but still, Macross II can't quite hold a candle to the original Macross.
It eventually became an "alternative universe" story and is rightly looked down upon by Macross fans everywhere.
