Storyline

A young pilot in the military named Hikaru rescues his idol, the beautiful singer Lynn Minmay, from the giants as they break through the ship's hull during a concert-during which the giants are shocked to see females on a male vessel-and they are trapped for days in an aft hold of the ship. After their rescue, Hikaru and Minmay continue on good terms until a joyride in a fighter trainer gets Hikaru, his squadron leader, Minmay's brother, Minmay herself and the tough female operations controller captured by the giants, who grill them on how males and females can survive together without fighting. The giants' female counterparts arrive to wreak havoc on their male foes, and in the ensuing confusion Minmay and her brother are detained while the others make an escape that costs squadron leader...

Alternate Versions

The English dub, unlike most, was actually made at the behest of the Japanese distributors, who felt an interesting gimmick would be to release the movie in both Japanese and later in English. Uncredited Australian and Hong Kong actors were used. A Japanese laserdisc and DVD release in 1997 used the concert scenes from "Flashback 2012" as a replacement for the aborted ending concert sequence. See more »

One word: WOW!
13 March 2002 | by MitakaSee all my reviews

I've been asked which I like better: Macross (TV) or Macross: Do You Remember Love? (movie) better. Truthfully, I see the movie and the TV series it was based on as two different things, so I have trouble deciding. But as far as early-80's anime movies, this one is one of the best, hands down!
