This OAV and _Macross 7 (1994) (TV)_ were the result of Big West giving 'Shoji Kawamori' an unlimited budget in return for him finally making another Macross production. Kawamori set only one condition: he would not revisit the original main trio of the first TV series (Hikaru, Misa and Minmay). See more »
You're as unbelievable as ever, Isamu.
As foolish and reckless as you've ever been.
Ahh, no one can be SMART and reckless.

Material exclusive to the movie, not present in the OVAs:
Alternate first encounter between Guld and Isamu in a hangar.
Alternate angle and voice tone for Isamu's "Show me what you got" line.
Instead of the tests montage, there is a scene of Isamu doing free fall with the YF-19 and making a risky high-speed landing, while in the control room, Guld remembers Isamu stealing a plane years ago he made when young and drawing a Pterosaur in the sky during an exhibition.
More scenes with Isamu and Lucy. In a dock at night he describes how he feels when he flies. A later Post-Coital scene with both sleeping naked in bed.
More brief flashbacks of Guld trying to rape Myung.
Isamu here ignores the call to save Myung.
The YF-19 is introduced in the beginning whereas the OVAs introduce it in the second episode.
Rather than just crashing, Guld does Kamikaze to destroy the Ghost.
A scene with Myung and Mr Raymond talking about Eden, and Myung "avoiding" a question about her singing instead of Sharon.
An alternate, longer "Information High" montage sequence.
Guld also pretends to be destroyed, but here he falls a bit and comes back up, ditching the speed limitators.
Guld taking the YF-21 beyond its speed limit, and chasing the Ghost way longer, until both become like shooting stars. The faster the plane goes, Guld's organs start to crumble, his skin is almost peeled back, and his eyes explode. Just as this happens he gets the Ghost.
A minor flashback sequence with Isamu and Myung as kids trying to catch a giant pterosaur feather, and Guld helping them grab it.
A faint, somber music is played as the Macross lands back into the water.
The morning after the final fight, Isamu lands and wakes up myung who goes to see him. As they talk she starts to sing, and after playing the flashback sequence of their youth, Isamu and Myung both raise their hands like planes and point them to a star (Guld).
There's no doubt about it. Macross Plus is simply the BEST ANIMATION TO WATCH AT HOME! It's story is greatly told, the drama is very deep, the characters are natural, the mecha are perfectly presented, the visuals are top-notch and the direction is perfect.
