Love Macross. What other show actually has a music director in it?
Unless fighter spacecraft that can transform into mechs isn't your thing, this is easily the best show of the season. The plot seems straightforward for the moment (space monsters attack, humans fight back, etc), but the story pacing and character development is just right.
Add some jaw dropping animation and fantastic battle scenes (combined with jpop idols singing at the same time) and you got a pretty good contender for anime of the year.
