THE PLOT:

In the not too distant future, Earth is involved in a third world war, which all change when a massive alien ship crash-lands on the remote island of Macross. A cease-fire was ordered and ten years pass as the human race examine the technology of the massive alien ship. No aliens were found on board, the technology was dubbed Robotechnology.

But a race of clones called the Zintrodi bred only for war has followed the ship and the people of the SDF-1 must battle the unspeakable evils of war once again.

Rick Hunter, ace stunt pilot is one of the people drafted into the war and has a war of his own. A war of the romantic kind, rather to pick the beautiful but naive Lyn Minmay or the beautiful but experienced Lisa Hayes.

Plus the aliens learn that there is more to life then fighting and killing, can they overcome centuries of brainwashing?

ZEDD'S OPINION:

I was fourteen years old when Robotech came to America and even then I could tell certain scenes were censored. Even with the obvious censorship I enjoy watching Robotech. I enjoyed the characters and the story.
I GIVE IT...8 STARS

VOLTRON'S OPINION:

I was a lot more disappointed with the censorship but write it off considering it aired on regular TV and don't get me started on regular TV. Anyway, I fell in love with the Minmay character, the Marilyn Monroe of anime. I can't imagine any man not falling for her. I can't wait until the uncensored version comes out on DVD.
I GIVE IT...7 STARS

ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):

+ CHACTERS (The characters are very likable, even the enemy aliens)
+ STORY (The stories work and are very complicated.)
+ NOT DUMB-DOWN TOO MUCH (If that was shown today, the american PC thugs would have had the planes robot controled instead of people and aliens getting blown up)
+ MUSIC (The music is very well written and preformed)
+ LYN MINMAY (Could there be a more charming character in Anime today?)

And Finally:

ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):

One Word:

- CENCORSHIP (I almost wish they just placed Robotech on tape, like they did with Devil Hunter Yokho or Cutey Honey)
