Storyline

In the far future, a human colony planet called Glorie comes under attack by an alien race called the Zors. The focus characters of this series, Lt. Jeanne Fránçaix and the 15th Armoured Tactical Unit which she commands, quickly prove to be one of the most effective combat units in this war, despite their reputation as troublemakers. In the course of the war, they play a key role as the entire Army of the Southern Cross fights a seemingly hopeless battle against an apparently near invincible enemy. Yet secrets and tensions are hidden in the enemy itself which could profoundly change the conflict on their own. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

Not especially my favorite.....
24 July 1999 | by (mid-core) – See all my reviews

But it is a bit better than the Robotech re-edit.

Lt. Jeanne,Booie(is that his name?) and others there on Earth must learn the secret of the Zor race,but at the same time,when the two were on another planet,Booie finds triplet women whom make a very eery form of music that game me the creeps myself.

It's okay,but it's not as good as Macross (1982) and Genesis Climber Mospeada (made the same year as this).Oh and just one thing,JEANNE IS NOT RELATED TO MYLIA AND MAX!!!
