Like most American folks (and some non-American folks to be sure) who grew up watching 80s-era 'toonage, my first look at the Macross series was in the form of the first chapter of Robotech. And even though I still hold a certain degree of sentimental nostalgia for the latter show, I gotta admit I like the original uncut Japanese version a fair bit more. Well, except for the background score-- the music used for Robotech seemed a better fit in my opinion, and wasn't quite as melodramatic as the original score. Sorry if this offends you anime purists out there, but-- no wait, actually I'm not the least bit sorry. I could give less than two doots what'cha all think...
Naturally, the biggest attraction of the original Macross is the chance to see all the stuff that Harmony Gold (the show's North American producers) changed and edited out of the series to conform to the various kidvid standards of the day. You know, excess violence, naughty bits, a smattering of mature situations and language situated somewhere in PG & PG-13 territory, and stuff that might not have translated well to audiences on the opposite side of the Pacific and elsewhere. I saw a smattering of such scenes and situations (a few examples include slight extensions of the deaths of Roy Focker & Kakizaki ("Ben Dixon" to you RoboPhiles out there), allusions to Roy's battles with the bottle, and a few naughty thoughts from Max during his first encounter with Milia in the video arcade), but they made up a rather miniscule part of the "restored" bits. The vast majority of no-longer-missing moments were rather innocuous (mostly incidental or "slice-of-life" scenes), and led me to wonder why they'd been shortened or removed from Robotech in the first place.

I am still impressed with this whole series, this set contains episodes that are some of my favorites. it has some extended death scenes and misc other tidbits removed from Robotech. I still am amazed at the quality of the restored animation here. it is truly vibrant! there are still flaws, after all its an 80s show. I had never seen Macross until these sets were released I stuck to my guns claiming that Robotech was the Ultimate, but this is the Ultimate companion to Robotech, or the other way around. the Robotech and Macross sets are must haves if you are a fan.
