Macross Frontier deserves it. It was head and tails different and unique from anything else produced in the Macross Franchise.

I think Macross Zero was better. I don't think it deserved the w/e award. And since when did The Two Towers become sci-fi?

Don't find Macross F as deserving as TokiKake and Dennou Coil, but eh.

I suppose for the Scifi genres, Frontier was pretty good. Hm.
