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.

Mixed Feelings
Macross II: Lovers Again was my very first anime. I saw it as a teenager and it made me a fan. Even though it may not have the best story, animation, or characters of the Macross series, I have a soft spot for it.

The way I viewed the episodes is a worth mentioning. I saw the first four episodes as VHS rentals from Blockbuster. Episodes five and six were not available, so I watched one through four many times without knowing how the story ends.

The characters are paper thin, the plot is paper thin, this isn't long enough to justify itself. I wondered why this was declared non-canon until I watched it (as I like giving most things the benefit of the doubt) but if this were my first venture into Macross I probably wouldn't have become a fan of the ...
