A new splinter race of the Zentraedi show up: the Marduk. While the Zentraedi were defeated by Lynn Minmay's music, the Marduk have their own singers (emulators), spur their soldiers into battle. A reporter name Hibiki Kanzaki captures a Marduk emulator, Ishtar, while reporting on a battle, and proceeds to teach her of the happy-happy fun-fun nature of peace & love, which she shares with the rest of her people.

Sequels are supposed to build upon what was left behind by the original, not re-do it. Originally made to be a sequel to both the Macross series and Macross: Do You Remember Love?, Macross II lacks insight and originality. Macross II takes the key themes of the previous Macross' (love, song, and war) and replicates them under the guise of new characters and settings. To make matters worse, the execution of the themes is rather poor. The good news for Macross fans is that Macross II is not an "official" event in the Macross timeline. The premise wasn't entirely bad, but sloppy execution and repetition make this movie/OVA a bust.
