In the war between the Earth Federation and Zeon, a young and inexperienced crew find themselves on a new spaceship. Their best hope of making it through the conflict is the Gundam, a giant humanoid robot, and its gifted teenage pilot.
In the middle of World War III in 1999, an alien spaceship crashes on deserted Macross Island. In response to this event, a cease fire is declared as the ship reveals evidence of a potential extraterrestrial threat that could come to retrieve her. In response, the nations of the world unite to create the United Nations Space Navy (UN Spacy). In ten years, the ship is rebuilt as Super Dimensional Fortress One (SDF-1) and her technology is adopted for use. On the day of her formal launch, the Zentradi arrive determined to retrieve the ship intact. As Earth defends itself, we also see the personal lives of the ship's crew and residents as the war profoundly changes them. Meanwhile, the Zentradi learn that their enemy bears an uncomfortable resemble to their creators, the Protoculture, a fact which threatens to take this war down paths that no one can anticipate.Written by

The names of the Zentradi spies Warera, Rori and Konda form a complete sentence in Japanese. When rendered into Japanese words, this comes out as "Warera rorikon da". In English, the sentence means "We're pedophiles". See more »
Due to the fact that at least three studios of wildly varying quality worked on each episode simultaneously, many minor continuity errors and animation inconsistencies (for instance in Ep. 3 "Spacefold" where the escape pod under Roy's Valk every so often switches to a gunpod) crop up in each episode.

The original showing of the pilot episode had a different beginning, not revealing the transforming capabilities of the Valkyries in order to give the audience a suprise. The opening was changed to the regular one for all further showings. See more »
In 1989, Macross was re-broadcast with a new opening sequence, using "Super-Deformed" characters, to promote a "SD Macross" line of toys brought out by Bandai. See more »
Outstanding anime series, one of the best ever....
This anime series is one of the most outstanding anime series available. As many have said, it was one of the first I saw and it hooked me to anime for life. Now the original Macross series is available uncut on DVD from Animeigo. I recently purchased the limited edition box set and it was amazing! For all you searching for this series, it's now easily available in the U.S.! It's a must.
