Do not think this has anything to do with the Macross series. This IS NOT related. This actually ties into Robotech for anyone who's curious. Great for its age, while short. The story likes to get all over at times with how it paces its delivery. but I've watched this many times before heh. It feels a bit rushed at times and totally could've gone longer but it not going longer makes sense. Great music, the characters are a nice contrast to each other. Sure there's not too many characters but they all fill the gaps for what each other needs to grow. It's not strictly a mecha for those who tend to steer clear of the genre, this one it very light on that and they're not evven important to the focus of the show itself. The show centers around an AI more then it does the "mechs" you see, that and the relationship between 3 characters in particular and the past they share. It's sadly lost in the sea of OVAs that came out in the 80's and 90's for most people. Good gem, but again disregard the name yes it has Macross, yes it talks about Macross City and a Macross...it leads to Robotech despite all that.
