Storyline

Set years after the initial space war and peace with the alien race the Zentrani, a new fleet of colonization ships, each containing a city, treks to find a new planet to settle on. Lead by Capt. Maximillion Sterling in charge of the military escort and his estranged wife, Myrira Genus, Mayor of the key city of Macross 7 and advised by Exedore, the original Zentrani advisor, the fleet must achieve this goal despite the grave threat by a new enemy who constantly attack the fleet seeking to conquer the human population for their own sinister purposes. The enemy's numbers and might seem overwhelming, but the Earth fleet has a great advantage of their own. A rock band called Firebomber, fronted by Nikki Basara and the daughter of the Sterlings, has the rare and powerful musical talent that has turned the tide of battle to Earth's advantage in the past. Now the band must play a critical role in a war where singers are warriors and music can be the most valuable weapon of them all. Written by Kenneth Chisholm <kchishol@execulink.com>

Great series
20 September 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I agree with most of what the previous comment stated... Macross 7 is indeed a big change in attitude. But it's a rather good one, in my opinion. The characters in Mac 7 are just so quirky that you'll grow very attached to them. You get to love Basara's attitude and Mylene's obsession for nagging him... And of course Veffidas' obsessive compulsive drumming. The characters just make me want to laugh out loud in every episode, and sing along with their songs. By the way, it also takes some time to get used to the music--I'll admit that when I first started the series I really didn't like Fire Bomber's music. But it really does grow on you, and I was moved to buy many of their soundtracks a while ago.

Mac 7 is a wonderful series if you want something with a light mood and don't mind the strange stuff that happens in the plot. The animation quality also isn't top notch... they re-use a lot of animations in the concert and fight scenes. But the art is amazing to me, especially the facial expressions of Mylene and Basara. It really is worth at least watching once.
