Half retelling of the original Frontier series, half new story. Conspiracies arise within the Frontier government when Sheryl Nome arrives to the colonial fleet for her concert and is soon marked as a spy for Galaxy while childhood friends, Alto Saotome and Ranka Lee both try to achieve their dreams as the battle between Frontier and the Vajra draws closer.

This movie serves as part one of the Frontier retelling and will conclude with the second, The Wings of Goodbye.

Available officially in America for the first time, I went to see it without having seen anything "Macross" aside from vague memories of "Macross Plus" and "Robotech".

I liked it quite a bit as a faux-jukebox musical. It's not my favorite example of any of my favorite genres, but it is an example OF a fuckton of my favorite genres all at once. Songs, cute girls, mechas, a little romance, some intrigue, some comedy, a side-hustle montage... That's the good stuff.

Some of the parts feel a little rushed but it does a good enough job with the characters and the story.

Story 7/10

This retelling of Macross Frontier is reminiscent of the treatment that Escaflowne received in its theatrical release, and less like the Zeta Gundam films, where it is basically a recap with some refurbished scenes of animation.

But, I suppose I should give it the send-off it deserves, or as Sheryl would say, "a long, long goodbye."

This review of Macross F Movie 1: Itsuwari no Utahime and Macross F Movie 2: Sayonara no Tsubasa contains spoilers! You have been warned!
