Rewatching Macross Plus

Macross Plus is probably the first Macross title that i actually interested to watch as i saw the awesome performance of YF-19 and YF-21 in ACE 3. I watched the OVA roughly 4 years ago and last week i rewatched both Movie and OVA version. No doubt Macross Plus is the best Macross title so far with really high production value and i recall it is the most expensive Anime project at that time. The Dogfight is what makes Plus remembered for as the aerial combat between YF-19 and YF-21 is simply breathtaking. But this series also quite solid in Love Triangle which is quite intense as 2 former best friend fought for a single girl and Music is Great with Information High being a God-tier song(too bad it is only played briefly in both version) but still unable to compete with Macross 7. Personally i find movie version is more solid compared to OVA from beginning until the end despite skipping couple of scenes. With this i have finished watching all available Macross title except the TV version of Macross which i should watch soon. I hope Plus will show up more in future SRW and i am looking forward for what Kawamori have in hand for 30th anniversary of Macross.

  1. Have watched these twice since I have the DVD. Later Macross OVA that I like more would be Macross II & Zero.
