DVD REVIEW:

The "Macross Plus" anime OAV series was among the best anime I have seen and when it first came out, I was quite hesitant because how can they combine each 45 minute OAV series into one two hour movie?

Well, in this director's cut...with new footage, they manage to do just that and make it even better!

The DVD features the movie in Japanese with hard English subtitles and in lovely digital 5.1 for your audio pleasure.

There is also a photo gallery but the beauty is the movie and to hear it in 5.1. Just lovely! The only people who I can think that will get upset over this is the pure dub fans.

All I can say is that if you own the VHS version from a few years back and it's all worn out from watching it too many times, then it's time to own it on DVD because it's definitely worth it!
