Synopsis

By the year 2120, humans have successfully colonized other planets following the near devestation of Earth from the last great world war. However, on Gloire, one such colony are surprised and unprepared at the arrival of The Zor, a group of beings whom were the original inhabitants of the planet and left following similar near fatal events. Coming to reclaim their former home world, a relentless war erupts between both races that ultimately leads to a cataclysmic showdown and into a no-win scenario for either.

Super Dimension Cavalry Southern Cross may seem like your average mecha anime from the 1980s, but in reality it's one of the most unique members of the genre. Unlike the popular Gundam series, or even the other mecha titles by Tatsunoko Productions, Southern Cross is written from the point of a female protagonist. Jeanne is brave, strong, capable, and most importantly, thoroughly entertaining.

Another thing that sets Southern Cross apart is its message. The Glorians, who colonized the planet, are so quick to assume that the Zor are hostile invaders that they launch into a war without taking the time to learn about read more

"Super Dimensional Cavalry Southern Cross", or just "Southern Cross" for short, is not really related to "Super Dimensional Fortress Macross" in terms of story despite both of them being part of the "Super Dimensional" trilogy.

"Macross" became the first arc, "Robotech: The Macross Saga"; "Southern Cross" was adapted into the sequel arc, "Robotech: The Masters", and got the short end of the deal. While "Super Dimensional Fortress Macross" stayed mostly intact through its transition, "Southern Cross" underwent such drastic editing that read more
