Whatever makes you happy, I personally quite like it (yes, a nostalgia trip for most part)>>12059777
Yes, it's generic alien attack but that's what macross does best. They tried to change the formula twice - once with Macross Plus, which turned out pretty good, and then with Macross Zero which I didn't like (Too serious. And by that I mean that there was nothing to ballance it out.).
It may not be an awe-inspiring hit, but it's good (which actually suprised me, I expected them to really ruin the series...), well-executed and fun to watch, which is more than I expect from anime nowdays (It may be that my standards just plummeted so low...).
