Macross Plus scores with its triple-play
of dynamic mecha action, dramatic characters and rock music
elements creating a visual spectacle with whirlwind air combat
scenes that will leave you mesmerized.
Part 3: Adventures ignite a firestorm of
emotion when the dangerous rivalry between Isamu and Guld Bowman
reaches boiling point amid the pressure of the Super Nova test
program. After an investigation into the so-called "accident"
that left Dyson hospitalized, the UN Government in charge of the
test program unveils its hidden agenda. Myung is torn between
her feelings for the two men as her memories of days gone by on
Planet Eden are shattered by harsh reality.
Part 4: Angered by the news that the
Stealth Valkyrie trails have been abruptly stopped. Isamu and Yang
head toward Earth to get even with the pilot-less Ghost X-9 and
Guld goes after them for a final battle. The two fighters clash
amidst interceptor missiles being fired from Earth. During this
fight to the death, Guld recalls the fateful event that had been
sealed in his memory. Meanwhile, in Macross City, Sharon Apple
absorbs Myung's thoughts and now has full control over the city
and its citizens.

SECRET(S): None that I know of
The second volume to
this popular series is on DVD and the final two episodes do NOT
disappoint. I would have to say that when you finish watching
the complete series, you can't help but feel content about how
the series ends.
The staff does a great
job is bringing a complex storyline together in four OAV episodes
and the final two episodes in volume 2 are simply amazing.
To watch the anime in
it's original Japanese format with English subtitles is nice but
to also watch and listen to the dubbed soundtrack in 5.1 Surround
Sound is simply awesome!
The third OAV focuses
on the history between Isamu, Myung and Guld and what is becoming
of the Super Nova test program.
The fourth OAV focuses
on the battle against Sharon Apple and the pilotless Ghost X-9
vs. Guld in the final fight to the death. This is the final
episode in the OAV series.
The DVD continues the
trend with beautiful visuals and great sound (along with great
voice acting). The special features again feature a musical
photo gallery and trailers.
The "Macross Plus"
OAV series is one of the best short OAV-series. I think
the only thing that can actually surpass this "Top Gun"
like anime series is the "Macross Plus" movie which
features the compilation of all four episodes into two hours trimmed
down, but with extra footage of the final battle of episode 4.
Overall, if you have
the first volume, the second volume is going to blow you away
because the storyline for final two OAV episodes continues to
get even better and yes, "It's that damn good!"
THE SERIES: A+
