In the year 1999 an alien spacecraft crash lands on Macross Island in the south pacific. The people of earth band together to rebuild the ship. They name it The Super Dimension Fortress: Macross (SDF-1) On the day the ship is to take its maden flight, an alien race known as the Zentradi appear. The SDF-1 unwittingly fires upon them and triggers a Zentradi attack. During the attack the ship tries to fold, but something goes wrong and the ship is transported, along with Macross city, the island, and part of the surrounding ocean, out to the orbit of Pluto. The crew of the SDF-1 must now fight their way back to Earth, with the 70,000 citizens of Macross city who have taken refuge in the giant ship.

ROBOTECH is hands down the greatest show to ever reach America. G.I. JOE may have its public service anouncements, but ROBOTECH actually made me READ! I have worn out the spines of my ROBOTECH: The Sentinels series. Nothing from the 80's or 00's comes close. Besides... Lisa gave me some great dreams.

    I agree Robotech is by far the greatest all time anime. Nothing else compares.

      And Sehctam is an idiot. Not better than FMA? FMA sucks! So does that other modern day stuff like Naruto. Robotech is the greatest anime of all time.

                    This show ROCKED even though it was basically nothing more than an "outer space soap opera"

                          I remember not being able to find the VHS anywhere, but Suncoast when I was a kid in Colorado. Anime used to be REAL hard to find.

                            Brilliant "transliteration" of 3 completely different Japanese series into one coherent "Americanized" story. After some research of the Japanese episodes, the translated stories were not that far off base. I just bought the entire 3 season series of DVDs. I plan to get the complete sets of the Japanese originals now, to complete the set. This show had some dull moments in the second season, but overall, I give it a 10.

                              This show came from combining the Japanese anime MACROSS and SOUTHERN CROSS. The combination worked well. When I saw it as a kid , it was the most realistic show at the time. It was the first time I've seen main characters in a cartoon die (which was quite suprising). The big robots in that show are still the best.
