Less than a year after the events that transpired in the Macross 7 TV series, Basara leaves Fire Bomber and travels to the planet Zola. There, he meets a girl named Elma, who is a big fan of Fire Bomber. It is also on this planet where he must once again use his Spiritia powers; this time, to stop an army of poachers and Elma's father Graham from killing a group of space whales travelling within the planetary system.

The entire OVA is full of such unanswered questions which makes the story really terrible. The ending was nice though, that's the ...

Every time I watch this OVA I love it more.
As much as I absolutely adored the ending of Macross 7, it was a bit bittersweet and left me with a bit of a heavy heart. Dynamite fixes that little issue and is a PERFECT ending to Macross 7, as it's finished on a more upbeat and fun note.

I feel like many people write this off as a 'save the whales' narrative when that's really just sort of ...
