Robotech is in part based on the Macross universe. As such watching Macross Plus might appeal to you if you enjoyed Robotech, while if you enjoyed Macross Plus it might be fun to see a different interpetation of the Macross universe.

Love triangle?  Transformable jets? Idol you love to hate?  What more could you possibly want if you ever saw Robotech. Fans who have not seen anything out side of Robotech should test drive Macross Plus.

Gunbuster

Gunbuster

In the early 21st century, insectoid organisms are invading the galaxy, searching for new stars to house their young. Mankind's only defense lies with space cadets such as Takaya Noriko, daughter of a celebrated admiral killed in battle, and Amano Kazumi, the top of her class. With their skill and the power of the mecha known as GunBuster, the girls must help fight to protect the galaxy from total annihilation...

Both anime deal with young adults having to face alien invaders in giant mecha. If you enjoy this basic concept there is a good chance you will enjoy both Robotech and Gunbuster.

Martian Successor Nadesico

Martian Successor Nadesico

When Akito Tenkawa went looking for answers about his parents' deaths, he had no idea that he'd be indoctrinated into the spaceship Nadesico not only as a cook, but also as a mecha pilot – a job he wants nothing to do with! Alongside his childhood friend Yurika, stoic Ruri, otaku Gai and other misfit crewmates, Akito and the Nadesico crew find themselves in the middle of a brutal war against both the dreaded Jovian Lizards, and the military itself, who wants the civilian ship under their control...

Both shows deal with young adults having to face invaders in giant mecha. Robotech is the more serious of the two, while Nadesico basically pokes fun at shows like Robotech.

Mobile Suit Gundam 08th MS Team

Robotech is a lot like gundam in that they both have giant robots, traditional military fighting, and great stories.

Neon Genesis Evangelion

Neon Genesis Evangelion

In the future, a devastating event known as Second Impact has destroyed Tokyo as we know it, giving rise to Tokyo III - a city under siege by mysterious lifeforms known only as Angels. Mankind's only line of defense are the Evangelions, a set man-made machines piloted by a trio of fourteen year-old teenagers, Rei, Shinji, and Asuka. The fate of Japan and the entire world now lie with these three children, though they might not have the power to save the most important thing of all: each other.

Both Robotech and Neon Genesis center around the fight in giant mecha vs invaders. In Robotech's case from outer space, in Neon Genesis' case it is a bit more complicated.

Robotech is more straightforward action, while Neon Genesis tries to delve a bit deeper into the reasons for fighting and humanity.
