Well, trying to condense 37 episodes down to a 2 hour movie isn't fucking easy. I, too, rolled my eyes at some of the things they changed, but I still think it's better then Macross Fucking 7. If you look at it entirely on it's own, it's not a bad flick.
If not for Macross 2, 7 is about the worst in the franchise.>>11326085
Except that there's virtually no change between the TV series and the Movie on this. Minmay still sings a goddamn song to help the SDF-1 Macross and Britai's forces defeat Boldoza. I dont' see why they'd blame that shit on the movie.
