A supposed sequel to the original Macross series

This DVD is the North American release of the six-volume OVA release; this film edits the six episodes into a compilation movie. Since the creators of the original Macross series had no involvement with this project, this sequel series is usually considered an "alternate timeline" story. By the time I finished watching this film, I had a hard time believing it was an actual sequel to Macross. Even though the story is set 80 years into the future, there was very little that I saw or heard in the movie that tied this back to the original Macross series.

This DVD is also rather skimpy when it comes to special features. It felt like more of this area was devoted to trailers and advertisements for Manga Entertainment (the company that released this DVD) than on providing actual special features for the movie.

If you're a Macross fan that wants everything Macross-related, then this DVD would be for you. However, if you're a Macross fan that's not interested in seeing an "alternate timeline" story for the franchise, then you're probably better off not watching this DVD.
