There is a lot I can say about Macross Plus but one word that describes the film perfectly is Beautiful.

I first saw Macross plus when I was 14 years old, it was the second Anime I ever saw and since then it has became my favourite.

Plot wise - Macross plus has a very complex and interesting story, the main characters are well drawn and with each episode you get to discover more and the mysteries they hide.

Macross plus has beautiful visuals and stunning music performed by the very talented Yoko Kano (Cowboy Bebop)

The plot is a love story set in the world of Macross , but it is more of a dark love story that shows how messy situations can get when the truth is buried under lies.

Macross plus in a way is a sad show but that also adds to it's charm.

If you love great dark love stories with a futuristic twist then Macross plus is defiantly for you, I am 17 now and I enjoy it even more.

The show has something for everyone really and there is a character for everyone to relate to.

Be it a cocky and arrogant youth to a stubborn dark hidden maturity , Macross plus has it.

Below is a list and a rank out of 10.

Animation 10 = stunning visuals create a solid world were anything seems possible.

Sound 10 = the sounds and music of the Macross world are worth watching the show for alone

Come Back Value 10 = the show is very review able , you can watch it again and again as it never seems to get boring , you always notice little things with every new watch.

Lol well I just bought the box set today featuring the series and the sliced movie , going to watch episode one of the series J

I hope this review was helpful .

Here are some other films you should watch if you enjoy this.

Akira Perfect Blue Neo Genesis Z.O.E (Zone of the enders video game series) Cowboy Bebop series and Movie
