Superb
Macross Plus is one of my all time favourite movies let alone anime / manga movie! It is a superb mixture of action and character driven drama with an awesome soundtrack provided by Yoko Kanno.

The story has been brilliantly crafted into the Macross universe - being set 30 years since the Earth and the Zentraedi war (ala Robotech).

There are two versions of Macross Plus. There is a full length Movie (which I'm yet to see - but I hear has a nude scene) and the more common 4 part-er. They are both suppose to be the same yet different and hold on their own right.

There are about 4 albums available from Soundtracks to Sharon Apple 4 Track Mini-EPs.

Macross Plus is "dedicated to all pioneers" - something these people truly were.

Trivia

This OAV and Macross 7 (1994) were the result of Big West giving Shôji Kawamori an unlimited budget in return for him finally making another Macross production. Kawamori set only one condition: he would not revisit the original main trio of the first TV series (Hikaru, Misa and Minmay).
