  The Super Dimension Fortress Macross - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Macross is a science fiction series that combines giant transforming robots, apocalyptic battles, wartime romance, and victory through the use of various unconventional means, including bubblegum pop music.
In addition, Macross created one of the first anime idols Lynn Minmay, turning her voice actress Mari Iijima into an instant celebrity, and launching her musical career.
In Macross Plus and Macross 7, it is revealed that there was a movie produced after Space War I (the original Earth-Zentradi conflict).

 Mecha - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Mazinger Z, his most famous creation, was not only the first successful Super Robot anime series, but also the pioneer of the genre staples like weapons that were activated by the hero calling out their names ("Rocket Punch!").
Macross was especially noteworthy as it showed mecha fighting under combined arms tactics, ranging from the infantry Spartan MBR-07-II to the jet fighter VF-1 Valkyrie and artillery Monster HWR-00-II as well as Full Metal Panic.
The notion of a "flying robot" is sometimes considered absurd, until mecha enthusiasts point out the Mecha's ability to take advantage of reactionless maneuvering accomplished through a mecha's use of its arms and legs (known as AMBAC in the Gundam UC universe).

 AnimeNfo.Com : Super Dimensional Fortress Macross
The invincible space battleship, Macross, which is to be launched on the day, is obliged to participate in an actual battle immediately after the launching ceremony.
However, since Macross is still on the testing stage, it is defeated because of the failure in forlding (instantaneous transferring).
With as many as 56,000 citizens on board, Macross is wandering out of the Solar System into its circumference.

 DVD Verdict Review - The Super Dimension Fortress Macross: Upon The Shoulders Of Giants (Volume 1)
As the Macross is about to lift off, it suddenly unleashes a powerful weapon into the air, much to the surprise of the ship's crew.
Their efforts backfire, improbably stranding them, along with the civilian survivors of the city built around the Macross, at the edge of the solar system (and breaking the space fold system in the process, so they're unable to fold back to Earth).
Macross doesn't pull punches—characters die and the grim reality of war hangs over even the brightest moments—but it also has a sense of innocent adventure, embodied in both in the ship's literal journey and Hikaru's personal journey to manhood.

And the rest of Macross' soundtrack is a wonderful merger of a symphonic orchestra with rock, jazz and even blues influences.
Macross is a sad story; it is not quite an epic, although it features battle after battle.
Despite this, Macross still is a shining gem and deservedly enjoys a strong following in Japan and internationally, even now, 20 years on.

 : RevolutionSF - Super Dimension Fortress Macross Volume 1 : Review
Macross has been previously available on our shores as the classic 1985 adaptation for syndicated TV Robotech, and a sub-only, remastered, hard-to-find AnimEigo release.
One chaotic battle later, the Macross and her 50,000 civilian refugees find themselves alone against the alien menace, with only the brave crew's resourcefulness, their transforming mecha, and the oddly effective power of Japanese culture to defend themselves.
Considering that this is her first anime acting role since the original Macross twenty years ago, I think we can be charitable and ascribe this to simply being a bit out of practice, and I'm sure she'll get better as the episodes progress.

Americans know Super Dimension Fortress Macross (Chojiku Yosai Macross, 1982) as the first of the three series that were combined to create Robotech in 1985.
Although there are story differences between Robotech and Macross, the basic plot remains the same: a gigantic derelict spaceship crashes on an island in the Pacific, changing the course of human history.
Also there is the original pilot, "Space Fortress Macross", (staring rick yamata) which has some of the actors from Robotech in their Robotech Roles.

 ROBOTECH: Aircraft Technical Files Notes   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-22)
We kept the numerical designation of the RPG and changed the plane from Russian to South African manufacture, to highlight the fact that in Robotech, the Global War began before the arrival of the SDF-1, and not after, and the Graphic Novel refers to a world fractured by conflict.
The RPG mistranslated the source material on the ARMD cruiser to come to the conclusion that the Lancer II was unmanned - it is indeed a manned craft.
This craft was taken from the Macross movie universe and inserted into Robotech on the hypothesis that technical designs for the first few years after the final battle of the Macross saga are comperable in the Macross and Robotech universes.

Out is the hokey dialogue, in is a more mature, up-to-date story that runs along the same lines as the original, but sounds so much better.
Basically, you get all the episodes that were there from the American version, they’re just updated and rearranged a bit for your viewing pleasure.

Macross doesn't pull punches -- characters die and the grim reality of war hangs over even the brightest moments -- but it also has a sense of innocent adventure, embodied in both in the ship's literal journey and Hikaru's personal journey to manhood.
It's about finding who you are and where you belong in the world, wrapped up in a sprawling science fiction epic -- no wonder why it resonates so deeply with so many people.
Considering the high quality of both versions and the minimal differences between them, there isn't much reason for fanboys to complain about Robotech "ruining" Macross -- or for the average Robotech fan to watch Macross, for that matter.

Well, I thought this was the Macross 2036 shooter when I gleefully bought it from a local second-hand store for $2, but it turns out that it's a square-map-based tactical strategy game, ala Advance Wars. So rather than a mediocre shooter, I ended up getting a pretty decent strategy game.
Still and all, the battles so far have been fairly small skirmishes and move quickly. You can save to internal RAM between each battle, how nice. I'm pleasantly surprised by this game, I never would have tried it out on purpose but it turns out to be quite well done.

Well, I finished it, and it is indeed pretty short, and you do indeed unlock optional tranformable fighters to use in Free Play mode, some of which are pretty nifty--although not nifty enough to tempt me to try unlocking all of them or to play back through multiple missions with them.
Speaking of which, the second, movie plotline, is pretty weird to someone like me who's used to the TV-show plotline that made it over here as Robotech: The Macross Saga. But, happily, you still get to blow a lot of stuff up, so yay.
