Ok, as someone that knows the Macross franchise there are some points that I want to let you know.

1- Nothing gets resolved at the end (At most the boring excuse of a love triangle).

2- The wars are nicely animated but are for kids (Everyone is good let’s not kill people; instead we should hold hands and sing).

3- Every character is bland, not developed, and has no real reason to be doing war there.

4- This is a series focused on song promotion for sales. Not the plot (If there was one).

If you want to enter the Macross universe I really recommend you read more

One sentence to describe the series: <<A show that had promise but was ruined by bad planning.>>

As someone who got genuinely hooked by the original Macross TV show and have watched all of its successors, this is the stance I would take as I write this review.
------------------------------------
1. Story: 4.5/10
The best way to describe the story of Delta is fictional ISIS vs fictional UN. On the drawing board, it certainly looks like an enticing concept where great stories can unfold, right and wrong muddle together in the gray area, emotions are faced with hard cold reality. Unfortunately, in Delta, the staff tried to chew more than read more

I haven't watched such a terrible show in years (I don't really watch too many tho). It is so terrible that I have to get on a public website and rant about it. The story is OK, but the way the story is told is awful. I do not feel emotional at all to all the plots, characters in this series what's so ever. By comparing with Macross F, I was hooked at least from the first six or seven episodes. I watched this series simply because it's Macross - I wanna know the plot, period. The staff seem very strong yet I'm very disappointed read more

Narrative formulas; conventions; archetypes; genres. In the event that a fictional narrative turns into a series, then later a franchise -a brand of its own so to speak- it comes as no surprise that eventually the formula which had more or less distinguished the work from others will then arrive at a point wherein it is forced to change completely, adapt to contemporary circumstances, attempt to maintain the status quo, dissolve into a state of total irrelevancy, or end for good and become fondly remembered by many faults and all. Such is the case with Macross Delta.
