Trivia

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 »

Beautiful music, great action, excellent movie!
29 August 1999 | by (Florida, USA) – See all my reviews

Macross II is a great film for any Anime lover, especially those who know the Macross series (Robotech lovers will also find this movie very excellent!).

The music in this movie is beautiful. If you know the Macross series, and remember Lynn Minmei, then you know why. If not, a quick history lesson: civilization makes music, and it is music that won the first Macross war. Throughout this movie, music is used as a weapon, for romance, for civilization... If it wasn't top-notch, this movie might have failed. But it didn't; the music made this movie worth watching alone.

The dramatic scenes are also top-notch. The characters in this movie are nearly real. Certainly, some of the secondary characters are wooden, but it is easily overlooked because the main characters are so believable! The last episode of this movie contains one of the most moving scenes in Anime, but I won't spoil it for you.

Finally, the mecha combat is amazing. It is truly exciting and fast, and will definately get your adrenaline flowing. While the combat scenes are amazing, they aren't overdone; this movie is about a /story/.

I truly believe that if you wanted to see some really good Anime, or are just getting interested in Anime, watch this movie. It will become the measuring stick by which all other Anime is measured!
