Synopsis

A.D. 2089 - 80 years have passed since Space War I changed the lives of both human and Zentraedi races. Both races are at peace on Earth when a new alien race called the "Marduk" appear within the Solar System. While covering the first battle between the U.N. Spacy and the Marduk fleet, SNN rookie reporter Hibiki Kanzaki discovers Ishtar, an "Emulator" that enhances the Marduk's combat abilities through singing. Hibiki brings Ishtar to Earth to teach her the values of life and culture. Together with ace Valkyrie pilot Silvie Gena, Hibiki and Ishtar must find a way to save Earth from total destruction at the hands of the Marduk leader Ingues.

Hibiki smuggles her to Earth to teach her the values of life and culture. Together with ace Valkyrie pilot Silvie Gena, can they find a way to save Earth from total destruction at the hands of the Marduk leader Ingues?

Let me preface with "This was my First Anime.. Ever" so not only does it for on just about every cylinder for me, but i also have nostalgia goggles. I gave this show a perfect 10 PERSONALLY. However objectively i rate it more at a 7 or 8 now that ive seen hundreds of other anime. I still stand by a high rating though, the characters seem like they actually care about what's going on and react reasonably for the situations. I'm a fan of Hibiki and Sylvie, overbite and all. Ishtar is a bit more bland but really she's supposed to be given the read more

On the surface, Macross II isn't a particularly exceptional OVA, and you might say it relies on the Macross franchise to carry it. But it is very enjoyable.

It is set after the events of Do You Remember Love, and takes a Zeta Gundam-style approach to the future of humanity whereby, complacent after their decisive victory over the Zentradi, mankind has established an unsteady peace and industrialised the solar system. The extensive space colonisation alluded to in Macross Plus, 7 and Frontier is nowhere to be seen, and the UN Spacy are no longer the officious but well-meaning organisation you come to expect but instead have read more

One of my fav macross serie´s for years on end, Though the storyline os on an alternative macross timeline, it shows that , well it was trying to be quite special from the ´macross saga´ and did a nice job to it, but still from many fans it has received mixed reviews, the Minmay attack specially was becoming discarted along with some of the mecha/designs wich i liked , you see big space shipbattles and other known macross related stuff, colorful animation , nice and bright personality , buit some stuff could be done better
