So the other night, I finished watching (the original 1982) Macross series for the first time. I have to say, I really enjoyed it. The designs were overall good, the music was top notch, the story was great, the characters and voice acting (watched the English dub, NOT Robotech) were all fantastic. Also, the fights were pretty smooth and there was minimal use of unnecessary stock footage. The slightly dated animation was no detraction in my eyes, either. I didn’t expect this, but the romantic and musical plots fit in much better than I thought, and didn’t seem forced. The pacing of the story was really wacky though, which would probably be my biggest complaint.
For those of you who have seen it, what are your thoughts?
