    i might want to watch this, as it's (according to baboymo and probably others) the best mecha series ever. im confused though, are there multiple different series based off the same world, or are they multiple seasons under different names as opposed to season 1 / season 2, or what? i tried searching a bit, and i saw theres one with something something fortress macross in the title, macross 7, macross zero... :confused:

    also, if someone knows where i could get a ddl on these as opposed to torrents (or i guess torrents if there's still people seeding), it'd be appreciated :)

    Soymilk. I haven't seen too many Macross torrents with good speeds these days. I'd suggest you start with the original tv series along with Do You Remember Love. From there it's all up to you. Shoot me a PM since you're up there in Berkeley.

    You might wanna ask Grifter.

    Aside from the scant few episodes I never could get used to VF's with tits and the whole FIYA BOMBA thing. LISTEN TO MY SONG!

    I'm thinking about seeing the whole thing just to satisfy the completist inside me. :hs:

    Super Dimensional Fortress Macross is the original
    http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=355
    it is followed by Super Dimensional Cavalry Southern Cross
    http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=450
    and then Genesis Climber Mospeada
    http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=449

    by convention, these 3 series are collectively known as macross

    in america these were released in english as robotech: the macross saga, robotech: the masters, and robotech: the new generation, respectively
    http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=71

    in the macross timeline the macross saga is followed by Macross: Do You Remember Love?
    http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=366
    Macross Plus
    http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=501
    Macross 7
    http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=940

    Macross Zero is a prequel to Macross and was released only recently
    http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=939

    Macross II is a sequel set in a alternate timeline and does not tie in with Macross Plus or Macross 7
    http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/encyclopedia/anime.php?id=169

    What makes Macross/Robotech so loved?
    Many of us americans grew up with GI Joe, Transformers, Robotech, Voltron, etc. the robotech story was much more complicated than the other, containing elements of love, death, heartbreak, and other complicated emotions

    after 25 years the original series still holds up

    i liked macross 7 alot
    its a love it or hate it series and if you are a perfectionist and/or a big macross fan then you will complete this series regardless
    you hate it because he sings the same song(s) in every episode
    you hate it because he is too much of a pacifist
    you love it because some of the songs are catchy and used very effectively in a couple of eps
    you love it because a couple of the supporting characters are cool
    you love it because of max and milia

    one element that makes or breaks a series for me is great moments and macross 7 had a few of those midway thru

    Anyone know of plans to dub macross 7, and all the rest of them into English? I can't help but feel us Americans are getting jipped by not having these available. Yes I know I can get English subtitles, but I would rather hear it in English.

    NO!

    just watch sdf macross, macross: do you remember love, then macross plus, macross zero and flashback 2012. you can watch macross II and macross srven if you feel like it.


    southern cross and mospeda have nothing to do with macross.
