Flash Back 2012 is Minmei's farewell concert. Featuring some of her best songs, the music is performed over various scenes and events taken from Macross TV as well as Macross "Do You Remember Love". Also included is a newly animated closing sequence showing the launch of Misa's colony vessel, the Megaroad-01, into space.
This OVA is a treat for the Macross fan, best viewed after having watched the original series and Do You Remember Love. It brings closure to the Hikaru, Misa, and Minmei stories through the Macross series' keystone, music. Lynn Minmei's songs are presented through a series of music videos, most of which use footage from the TV series and movie. However the best is saved for last. My favorite part of the new animation is when Minmei is visiting the stage before departing and she has a vision of Hikaru and Misa appearing to show their support for her before the sequence transitions to the
concert and departure of the Megaroad-01. I have to rate Character as only Fair since the viewer is assumed to already be familiar with the source material and thus there isn't that much development other than of Minmei's.
