You're quite right that SDF Macross is a war story, and that many people think of the Valkyries first whenever the show is mentioned. However, it is also a war story with quite a large amount of character development, and almost shojou levels of romantic character interaction.

Many Macross fans describe the show, and have since it first debuted, as a soap opera in space. Giant war machines are not the reason for that.

The mecha and sci-fi trappings are all skin deep. The story was a whole could work equally well in a modern day setting, or even a WW2 setting. The character development presented could even work without the war at all. Love triangles of this kind are hardly monopolized by war stories.

Quite simply, however, SDF Macross would not be SDF Macross without both elements. Since that time the show's creators have played with the balance of these elements over the course of sequels. Macross Plus was more about the mecha and the action, while Macross 7 pushed the character developement and themes.

Downloading right now, and man, I can't wait! A pity I have to go to work, but at least my connection will be first grade there . And thanks for the Fast work to the ANBU team if they happen to pass this thread.

Edit : Download complete and uploading (at 240KiB/s, this connection is good ) now I just can't wait to go back home.

Beautiful ending to the story. Can't wait to get the 5 in a subbed DVD release, but for now my 5 ANBU/AonE subs will do.

dudes sorry to ask, two questions:

I saw the ova 5 but somebody can explain me what happened at the end? (with the spoiler tag ofcourse)

and my other question is, what kind of connection you have to DL at 1000+ Kib?

I pay the highest DSL speed that they offer me and just sometimes the best I get is 125 Kib.

Is it just me or does this series remind me of Authur C Clarke's "2001" saga?

So for us poor deprived ones out there who have yet to see any Macross stuff yet (yes we exist, though our numbers dwindle quicker than WWII vets), would we be better off watching Macross Zero before Macross or not?

In other words, is Macross Zero a prequel that can only be properly understood/appreciated after seeing original Macross, or would it be okay to go Macross Zero -> Macross?
