The Mobile Suit Gundam Trilogy takes footage from the episodes Mobile Suit Gundam television series and puts them into three movies for a quick but thorough experience, this allowed a boost in popularity for the Gundam franchise because many people could watch it in theatres in Japan back then. Do You Remember Love? adapts the story of the Super Dimension Fortress Macross television series and also compresses it down for quick but thorough viewing, just like the Mobile Suit Gundam Movie trilogy, it was a great publicity boost for its own series. Mobile Suit Gundam Trilogy has a more focused matured plot, while Macross should be best  read more

Macross: Do You Remember Love? and Legend of the Galactic Heroes are both space operas directed by the brilliant Noboru Ishiguro. They both contain wonderful animation for their age, beautifully animated battles. For Macross, it's about the dogfights, for Legend of the Galactic Heroes, it's between fleets of ships. Both of the soundtracks are stunningly brilliant, one of the pillars of Macross is music and it is directly involved in the story. Legend of the Galactic Heroes does not involve music in tis plot but it does have classical music play during the epic battles.

Both are sci-fi anime that involve mecha, which focus a lot on love and relationships. Both have space battles between humans and aliens, while at the same time, developing the romance between the male leads. Both have some sort of melancholic feel and create a similar atmosphere.

Beside the genre similarities, both movies are about mecha wars against aliens, complex love plots and power of the entertaining culture (music, art of painting vs.) finally they are successful spin-offs of the original series. While in the original series characters were built and developed; in these movies most wanted fan services have been done at certain scenes. Main characters in both series are not the strongest willed human beings they are just human (at least in appearance), they are making mistakes like all humans. Last main comparison is usage of music in the movies. RahXephon uses the music in a more decent way (a real  read more

Both movies summarize their respective TV series. They are made around the same period, and have similar art and animation. Both focus on intense battles between mecha, and also have some romantic elements (which are more highlighted in Macross). Both have an overall similar vibe, with the main difference being that Gundam is a bit more mature, while Macross focuses a lot on music.

Both movies summarize the events from their respective TV series. Both are space opera anime which focus on a large-scale mecha conflict, but also have many romantic elements which provide a contrast between war and love. Overall, both anime have a very similar vibe and atmosphere.

Serie´s that both were in their PRIMETIME, Genre is on and off simmilair to eachother but both involve the sort of ´back then´the populair 1980's mecha-genre, bigtime! and runtime of both is longlasting as well!

Both are summary movies from your respective TV series (Gurren Lagann and Macross). Both Add new scenes or new animation, improving the show. Finally, both are highly recommended to watch, mainly if you like mechas and huge battles.

Two great '80s sci-fi flicks that successfully balance science fiction themes about space travel (Honneamise) and aliens (Macross) while maintaining engaging romantic plots. Great for fans of sci-fi OR romance, and best for anybody who loves a good combination of the two.

Both films are beautifully animated big budget adaptations of earlier classic mecha-series (both with Shoji Kawamori involved in a major way). With an emphasis placed upon darker and more realistic animation and tone alongside an intangible and alluring mysticism, each work strengthens their respective franchises.

Macross: DYRL, and the Macross saga as a hole is "father" show to AKB in many many ways. Apart from sharing key staff, the concept of saving the universe through song, and idols, while robots battle was pioneered by Macross. Macross is where it all began, and this movie is the distillation of that universe. If you liked AKB, you owe it to yourself to watch this movie.

DYRL and FSS are similar in that they both sort of through you into the situation without a whole lot of backstory, it's probably assumed you should know what's going on already by having seen their previous adaptations. Both are mecha anime, although the focus isn't entirely on the robots but instead on the characters and their situations. Other than that, both feature great animation and coloring, and haven't aged that badly over time. In addition, both are considering space operas and both are the beginnings to their much longer respective stories.
