I considered saying something like “It’s good to see Macross back to form” or “After a somewhat dissapointing Macross Zero, I am happy to see…” but that all implies somehow that I am an avid follower of the series. I am not. I grew up on Robotech, loved Macross Plus and found Macross Zero ok but I haven’t seen anything else.
Now I am watching Macross Frontier and so far (6 episodes in) I am enjoying it. The first episodes felt a lot like a general rehash of the opening episodes of SDF Macross, story wise, which was a bit jarring but apart from that my recommendation would be that you watch it. It doesn’t hurt watching it in HD on a 40″ HDTV either.
