I recommand you especially this season, Macross Frontier! The first one, Macross Super Dimensionnal Fortress looks a bit old (1982-1983 I think), but was really good! The Macross II Lovers Again OVAs (4 OVAS) were less interesting... Macross Plus OVAs were weird... Macross 7 season (49 episodes with lots of OVAs) was not really good, but funny and really special... lol And for Macross Zero OVAs (5 OVAs), this was really well made for the animation, a very good chara design but the story is less insteresting... Though I'm a big fan of Macross series, I plan to make one day my own Macross serie! Actually, I got really good ideas for a new story already
Hehe. Sounds awesome. I wish you the best of luck in that! Creating your own manga or such for a series will take some great skill to be able to keep with the series! But it sounds like you've got a bunch of that figured out.
When I free up some space on my external hardrive I think I will give some of the seasons of Macross a try. I remember seeing some pictures from the old one when looking up the newest season. I was surprised to see it went so far back!
If you got lots of free time, it won't be that bad to watch all Macross seasons lol, because it's fun to recognize all the references about the old series on the latest season! Actually, Macross Frontier has been made for the 25th anniversary.
