Macross 7

Horrible, just horrible.

The biggest questions out of dozen that crosses one's mind is 'what were they thinking?' and 'are you kidding?'

How do you turn a respectable classic series with great story, great writing and great design into tasteless lazy mess for 9 y.o. kids?
Everything is so bad and weak, you're starting to wonder what was the point in going to such lengths as to proclaim Lovers Again a filler, when your 'cannon' is equally terrible if not worse.

It's almost shocking that the story and mecha designs are actually made by Shoji Kawamori himself, considered how weak and stupid they are. Mechanical designs look like they belong to Digimon, character designs look like they were created by 12 y.o. Story and writing is childish, absurd and just plain stupid. I have never made so many facepalms during any screening of anything. And this nightmare is stretched into 50+ episodes, in 4 of which anything actually happens.
Animation is extremely lazy and never comes close to the level reached in Opening sequence.
Soundtrack is nonexistent, and entirely composed from exact 4 horrible songs you must suffer 10 timed through each episode.

This show manages to completely lose whole point of the original Macross's ideas, insult it countless times and then proceed to embarrass itself even further.

2/10 story
5/10 animation
2/10 sound
2/10 characters
2.8/10 overall
