Sometimes the movie version can clarify, continue, or even in some instances improve the overall scope of the TV series.
In the case of both Macross Do You Remember Love, and Neon Genesis Evangelion's latest set of movies, you will see updated, crisp animation and tighter, non-fill type storyline.
Shogo was an average teenager who worked at McDonalds, drove a motorcycle and hung out with his friends – until one day, his friend Shingi showed off a prototype motorcycle called 'Garland' and was killed by secret agents attempting to steal it for themselves. Shogo escaped with the bike and his life. The next day, there is no indication that this ever happened. Shingi is reported as overseas for special training; but secret agents are staking out Shogo's apartment and are still hunting him down! Eventually the conflict comes to a head and Shogo discovers that Garland is able to transform into a giant robot – how can this be? With these new developments, Shogo must discover the purpose of the conspiracy and the secret world around him.
