Episode count: 4
Background: In the official Macross/Robotech timeline, Plus is the first sequel to the original series. It is a four episode OVA series. The series was groundbreaking due to combining traditional cel and CG. It paved way for future Japanese animation and CG. Macross Plus also has new mecha designs that were inspired from the original series.
Plot: The plot takes place three decades after the war between humans and Zentradi. New technologies are developing by the UN government on Eden, a colony planet. Isamu Dyson and his former childhood friend, Guld Goa (a mix of human and Zentradi), are each given the ability to fly one of the new air crafts. This is to choose the pilot to the newest VF-21 Thunderbolt used by the UN Spacy military force. They are no longer friends though and this messes up the testing quite a bit. Myung Fang Lone also shows up and is a mutual female friend of the two. She just so happens to be the hottest entertainers producer, Sharon Apple.
Why I chose this: One of my favorite Macross series. I love the romance triangle between the main characters. Yoko Kanno does an amazing job with the soundtrack like always. The art work was the right 90s style for me as well.
