Review: Macross Frontier

Plot Summary: Macross Frontier marks the 25th anniversary of the Macross anime franchise. It is a direct sequel to the first Macross series and Macross 7 and follows the lives of Alto Saotome, Ranka Lee and a pop idol named Sheryl Nome on board the Macross Frontier colonization fleet. After the war against the Zentradi aliens, Humankind has spread across the universe in order to ensure its survival. The Macross Frontier fleet is part of a effort to spread and maintain the culture of humanity.

I have been a fan of Macross since I was a kid, seeing planes that transformed into Robots was the coolest thing and I followed all anime which were an offshoot from the original. Luckily this picked up the story where the other one ended and developed it even further, the humans were working with the Zentradi and new life is ahead of them but they face a new menace unknown to them. First off the animation in Macross Frontier is fantastic, just the perfection combination of 2-D & 3-D making it look amazing, the fight scenes fantastic, and just as the original a lot depended on the music and they did an amazing job with that. This anime is at the top and one of the best since the original was released, a must watch for all anime fans and even if you aren’t you will enjoy it.
