Macross - Do you Remember Your First Love

Macross is one of the true classics of Japanese animation.  A series whose fans tend to lean towards the fanatical, it's most recent series was Macross Frontier.  A series that was in many ways a return to form for a show that had become weighed down under its own history and the expectations of its fans.

Macross was one of the first shows that I remember seeing.  I remember thinking that I had never seen anything quite so impressive as a transforming Valkyrie.

So for all of those people who have never seen Macross - do so.  At its best, Macross is everything anime should be; imaginative, creative and visually stunning.  At its worst, it remains far better than many other anime series.
