*Winner of Newtype Anime Award 2011 for Best Film*

The final chapter of Macross Frontier opens with a tremendous sequence that sets the mood and the tone for the entire film to follow. Three months have passed since the climactic showdown with the Vajra fleet at the end of the first film and superstar Sheryl Nome is holding a new concert. At the same time S.M.S. and NUNS fleet engage in regular skirmishes with Vajra while deep inside LAI labs (that owe more to Weyland-Yutani than the set designs familiar from series) research on Vajra and fold quartz read more

This review is spoiler free.

I was excited when a fansub of this film was finally released. The first film remake of Macross Frontier was actually not that bad. It was enjoyable, and the changes they made from the original anime were interesting. This film follows the first.

It's immediately clear that a considerable amount of money went into the production of this film. The CGI effects are a step above what we saw in the original anime. There's more detail, the fights are faster and more frenetic, and the animations are all much more convincing. The battles are fantastic. The music's quality continues to be near read more

The second part of Macross Frontier's theatrical version. What can I say? If you've seen the series and the first movie you know what to expect.

a) The best animation ever seen (the first movie blew me away so did this one)
b) Cheesy songs that you may end up listening to as a guilty pleasure, you wouldn't be caught dead listening to them in front of your friends
c) A crazy story about how music can suddenly save the world and make wars come to an end
d) some sort of stupid Love Triangle

I mean the thing with Macross is you can't judge it in comparison to read more

Now lets be real here; people watch(ed) Macross Frontier for one of three reasons:

1. Robots
2. Romance
3. Singing//Music//Animation (visual arts)

Now I'm going to excommunicate the first category as this doesn't relate to you. Anyone else feel that the movie(s) were WAY below par from the TV series in terms of romance and the arts? I loved the TV series with all my might even if the story was a bit minimal (I consider Anime the same as novels in general and story is very important to me) but the singing and the triangle romance eventually won me over. The series had great visual effects and AMAZING read more
