Over the past couple weeks we have watched the following Anime:

Macross Zero
The Super Dimension Fortress Macross
Macross: Ai Oboete Imasu Ka?
Macross Plus
Macross 7
Macross 7: Encore
Macross 7: Dynamite
Macross 7: The Galaxy's Calling Me
Macross Frontier

Do you sense a trend? We've been meaning to do this for a long time, but it was hastened by the fact that Cherie has been really in to Sheryl Nome (I am partial to Ranka Lee, mind you). But now we can say that we are eligible for the Macross award, having sat through 57 episodes of Macross 7, 36 episodes of SDF Macross, and 25 episodes of Macross Frontier, and 5 episodes of Macross Zero, 4 episodes of Macross Plus plus the full length movie Ai Oboete Imasu Ka. That is 127 episodes of Macross. And it was awesome.

If you've never seen Macross, it is what Robotech thinks about every night as it cries itself to sleep. Robotech was pieced together haphazardly out of episodes of SDF Macross, Genesis Climber MOSPEADA, and Super Dimension Cavalry Southern Cross, three unrelated shows. But Macross is better in every way possible. It's deculture.

Now that we are through with Macross I don't know what I'm going to do with my life.

Ah, Macross 7. One of the first anime not airing on German tv that I've watched. Nostalgia!
yeah it's funny that the US, because of this obnoxious company that exists only to sue people called Harmony Gold, hasn't gotten much Macross officially released. I think that Europe and Australia have gotten a lot more, depending on the country (like I think that Italy is the third highest grossing country for manga besides Japan and the US?).

I'd really recommend Macross Frontier, especially if you've seen SDF Macross, Macross Plus, and Macross 7, because it's overflowing with very subtle references to all three of those shows.
