I just finished re-watching the Macross Zero series. I have to say that it was a fantastic prequel to the series proper.
The style of the characters were well-done. The Backgrounds were beautiful(I especially liked the clouds in the sky). My only complaint would be that the veriteh action was paced in a way I didn't like; quick changes from super speedy to slow-motion. Also, as an animator, the veritechs sometimes didn't move naturally in battloid/guardian mode.
It just seemed to have a style all its own while retaining the feel of Robotech.
Robotech was the main inspiration for my path in life. I still remember renting that as a kid and watching volume after volume.

Are these out on DVD yet?
I heard they are making a sequel to the Robotech saga called Shadow Chronicles.

I just watched the first and second volumes. Great stuff.
Anyways, nothing compares to Macross Plus.
Just my opinion.

Bought it but hasn't watch it yet. The VF-0's design is great. I'm liking it even more than the classic valkyrie VF-1.

It's a prequel to the original Macross tv series. (The real one, not the "Robotech" version.)

haha bringing up an old thread I missed.
Macross Zero is related to the TV series in that it takes place before the Zentreadi get there. When the SDF-1 has crashed to the Earth and a big war has begun over the technology and the search for more artifacts.

Other than that, no connection. Oh yeah, and the ending was pure crap.

I also "like" how their 2 most formidable enemy in the air didn't perish under the hands of the main characters. Great design, not so great animation towards the end, and totally disappointing. So, it was a worthy Macross title and no more complaints from me
Also if anyone noticed. The VF-0 was based on the F-14 design (as we all know) and the SV-51 was based on the F-18. Which was particularly ironic because the Superhornets will completely replace the Tomcats as chief fleet defender for the US carrier groups by the end of March 2006.
There are 3 sides to every story. Yours, mine and THE TRUTH.
