About the Title: "The Super Dimension Fortress Macross"

The series title is a complicated play on words, the result of the project's convoluted preproduction. The original story creators at Studio Nue and Artland initially named their project, "Battle City Megaload/Megaroad." The double pun refers to the ship's massive civilian population and long space journey. According to Chief Director Ishiguro, the producer for the sponsor was a fan of Shakespeare, and insisted on naming the series and ship "Macbeth" (pronounced "Makubesu" in Japanese). Studio Nue and Artland regrouped and proposed the title "Makurosu," or "Macross" when written in English. Along with its similarity to Macbeth's Japanese pronunciation, the finalized title also retained the first title's connotation.

"The Super Dimension Fortress" prefix ("Choo Jikuu Yoosai") is a wordplay on an intermediary working title, "The Super Dreadnought Fortress Macross" ("Choo Dokyuu Yoosai Makurosu").

Comments attributed to Kawamori Shoji in the Macross liner notes are drawn from Nanda, Mamoru (1983) Best Hit Series: The Super Dimension Fortress Macross: Macross Graffiti, Akita Shoten, Tokyo.

Episode 1 "Booby Trap" (July 17, 1999-February 7, 2009)

When the series debuted in 1982, the creators deliberately inserted no scenes of Hikaru in a Valkyrie cockpit into the opening, and only one fleeting shot of the Valkyrie in Battroid mode, substituting other shots in order to keep the Valkyrie's transformation and Hikaru's exploits a surprise until the very end of the episode. (After the debut broadcast, the standard opening animation that's on this DVD release was used instead.) A similar shot substitution was used in the first episode of Macross 7 to conceal another plot surprise.

As the camera pans across Roy Focker's air show audience in the beginning of the episode, watch for the gaunt, dark-toned, mouth-gaping man in the back. He's the caricature of Macross creator Kawamori Shoji, as drawn by his old school friend and character designer Mikimoto Haruhiko. Kawamori was notorious for his aviation fan roots, noticeably dark complexion, and (according to some friendly jabbing from Mikimoto) disheveled appearance.

If the color scheme of the Valkyrie aerobatic team seems odd, imagine each fighter in Battroid mode. The creators designed the Angelbirds team colors to look like a Japanese schoolgirl sailor uniform -- navy blue skirt, red knotted handkerchief, and all. "Angelbirds" is a play on the US Navy Blue Angels and US Air Force Thunderbirds demonstration teams.

During Hikaru's flashback to Focker's stunt-piloting days, look for "Kawamori" and "Haru/Hal" etched on the Fokker D.VIII replica turboprop biplane. At the time Macross was filmed, Mikimoto would sign his name as "Hal."

Among the many buildings that Hikaru demolishes at the end of the episode are Studio Nue, Artland, and the subcontractor Anime Friend -- three of the major studios behind Macross. A "nue" is a chimera-like creature in Japanese mythology, and the Studio Nue logo on the building was penned by studio cofounder and mechanical designer Miyatake Kazutaka. (Oh, and also watch for Hikaru's infamous first "kill.")

Kawamori Shoji considers the first encounter between Misa and Hikaru as a major (but not the only) plot point for the first episode. The creators also presented the characters and the bridge scene to emphasize that Macross is "not a serious war story."

Episode 2 "Countdown" (February 7, 2009)

The neighborhood urchin is Yoshio, affectionately known as "Yot-chan" by his elders. His parents run the Japanese noodle shop near the Lynn family's Nyan-Nyan Chinese restaurant.

After dealing with the first wave of fighter pods, Major Focker radios "Skull Leader to Gunsight One." Gunsight, besides being the tactical call-sign for the bridge of the SDF-1 Macross, also was the fanzine title of the Gundam fan club that creator Kawamori Shoji, character designer Mikimoto Haruhiko, and writer Oonogi Hiroshi (Members #1, #2, and #3) founded while at Keio University.

When Macross debuted in October of 1982 in Japan's Kanto region, the first two episodes were broadcast as a one-hour "Macross Special." That debut broadcast had a unique eye catch commercial bumper and ending animation of Hikaru's fanracer that are not used in later episodes. This DVD release contains the final version of the first two episodes, which includes the episode 2 preview that didn't air in the debut broadcast.

Kawamori Shoji says that, compared to the first episode, the second episode's focus is the first meeting between Hikaru and Minmay. In this almost random encounter, the creators wanted to show that Minmay is a typical girl -- just without a typical mindset.

Episode 3 "Space Fold" (February 7, 2009)

The standard ending animation first debuted with this episode in 1982, although it is used for all episodes after the first broadcast as well as in this DVD release. Mikimoto drew the characters in Minmay's photo album by hand, and the creators composited them with photographs Mikimoto and Kawamori snapped all over Shinjuku and Harajuku in Tokyo. The helmet is an antique American Navy helmet the Studio Nue creators owned, while the entire live-action footage was shot in Artland's courtyard. (In case you were wondering, the page-turning hand was courtesy of a Tatsunoko Productions employee.)

Kawamori Shoji notes that this episode sets up the city that will be built aboard the Macross.

Episode 4 "Lynn Minmay" (February 2009)

The song that Minmay hums while showering was not made for Macross itself, but was written and composed by Minmay's voice actress herself. "Marin" can be found on "Ros," Iijima Mari's debut solo album.

The first song Minmay ever sings (while she and Hikaru are resting for the "night") is "Cinderella" -- also written and composed by Iijima Mari herself. In fact, this is one of the songs that reportedly won Iijima Mari her casting audition in a real-life parallel (for she was the only Minmay candidate that not only sang but wrote her own songs).

Kawamori Shoji says Hikaru and Minmay are presented as the main leads in this episode. The creators also wanted to present episodes with no battles.

Episode 5 "Transformation" (March 2009)

Minmay hums an original Iijima Mari song again in the beginning of the episode.

The very first romanization of Minmay's name ever seen in anime is actually "MINMEI," as written on her pink bunny door sign. Less than a minute later however, we see the first of the "Minmay" romanization that will remain prevalent over the rest of the series.

According to Kawamori Shoji, the transformation takes about 15 minutes. The creators wanted to show Minmay's "lack of sensibility" even as she urges Hikaru to enlist.

Episode 6 "Daedalus Attack" (March-April 3, 2009)

According to the "Macross Perfect Memory" book, there were originally only two HWR-00-Mk. II Destroid Monsters onboard the Macross. However, there were also enough parts in the Macross onboard factory for the third one that was used in the attack.

Kawamori Shoji notes that Hikaru and Misa's first face-to-face encounter sets up Misa's role as the heroine. (Kawamori has said that in Macross, Hikaru is the hero, Misa is the heroine, and Minmay is the star.)

Episode 7 "Bye-Bye Mars" (October 2009)

The story of Misa and Riber's romance and the tragedy of the Mars Base crew is retold in the novel "Misa Hayase: White Reminiscences." The crew died after they evacuated the base and were attacked by Anti-United Nations forces en route back to Earth.

The flashback between Misa and Riber takes place in the beginning of 2004, about two years after the couple first met.

According to Kawamori Shoji, this episode focuses on Misa's past to develop her point of view over Minmay's. The creator had always planned for Hikaru to save Misa several times during the series. However, the original preproduction plans didn't call for Hikaru's string of rescues to start until episode 12.

Episode 8 "Longest Birthday" (October 10, 2009)

The team at Studio Nue are avid World War II movie fans, so the similarity between this episode title and "The Longest Day" is no coincidence.

The mini novel "Dreaming Prelude: My Fair Minmay" relates more insight on October 10th, Lynn Minmay's birthday. In it, the Macross writing staff pen several short stories written in television script format about Minmay's day in school, plans for the upcoming Miss Macross contest, and more.

Kawamori Shoji says that the creators wrote this episode's story to reaffirm the overall atmosphere of the series. They also introduced Max ("the genius") to show there's more to the cast than just the main trio.

Episode 9 "Miss Macross" (October 2009)

MBS isn't just an acronym for Macross Broadcast System, but also one for Mainichi Broadcast System (Mainichi Hoosoo) -- the network affiliated with the Tokyo Hoosoo that originally aired the Macross TV series.

The designer of the Fanliner prize in the Miss Macross Contest is Ikki Takemi -- a repro-nounced anagram of Macross mechanical designer Miyatake Kazutaka.

Kawamori Shoji considers this episode to be one of the most important, even quintessential, episodes of Macross. He laughingly notes that the focus on Minmay proves she's no ordinary girl. The creators also debut the Armored Valkyrie -- if only because it hardly appears in any other episodes.

Episode 10 "Blind Game" (October 2009)

The creators named Minmay's singing instructor and composer Kent Flyer after the Macross music composer Haneda Kentarou. (Haneda is also the name of the domestic airport serving Tokyo, and its kanji literally means "feather field.")

Note the "Entrprise" (sic) on-screen reference, the first of several Star Trek references by Studio Nue, who are avowed science fiction fans.

This is a partial copy of a screen from one of the earliest computer games, "Star Trek," originally written by Mike Mayfield in 1972; it spawned dozens of variants on all sorts of minicomputers, timesharing systems, and early personal computers.

The hapless pilot of Misa's Cat's Eye recon-naissance craft is "S/Sgt H. Iwata" -- not coincidentally, Iwata Hiroshi was a Macross series producer from the contractor studio Anime Friend.

According to Kawamori Shoji, this episode raises the level of Hikaru and Misa's relationship and develops Misa's character in particular. The creators also wanted to expose Britai to the deep vacuum of space to counter the popular notions people have of space.

Writer Arthur C. Clarke and director Stanley Kubrick also tried to dispel the popular misconceptions about people in a vacuum with the famous unprotected space walk scene in "2001: A Space Odyssey." Kawamori has always professed admiration for the late director and his film 2001 in particular.

Basically, when you're dumped into a vacuum, you don't explode, and your blood doesn't boil (at least, not at first). Instead, since you can't hold your breath against the pressure differential, the air in your lungs rapidly escapes (bad), and then the difference in oxygen concentration between the now airless lung cavity (no oxygen) and the blood (lots of it) causes the oxygen to rapidly diffuse out of the blood, into the lungs, and thence to space. You black out in a few seconds.

Episode 11 "First Contact" (November 2009)

The Zentradi video screens contain some of the first instances of written Zentradi -- though it was not an actual language at the time, but simply encoded Japanese or English words.

Designer Miyatake Kazutaka developed the Zentradi "script" to hide references in the alien text.

It may not have been immediately obvious, but the stall in which Max does his impromptu costume change contains the Zentradi equivalent of a toilet.

Kawamori Shoji considers this episode the "big turning point" and culmination of all the plot setup to date. Even as Minmay debuts as a singer, the story is actually shifting towards Hikaru and Misa instead. Kawamori notes that the creators have been foreshadowing this story twist, but isn't surprised if people are still caught off guard.

The creators also saw this episode as their much-anticipated opportunity to explore the time-honored science-fiction theme of first contact.

Episode 12 "Big Escape" (November 2009)

Some Japanese fans half-jokingly suggest that Hikaru must come from the Kansai region of Japan for saying, "Aho ka?" in this episode. The Kansai region, centered around Osaka, is the second-largest urban area in Japan after Tokyo's Kanto region, and it is known for its rougher, more colorful language and cultural idiosyncrasies. "Aho" is a slang word, mostly used in the Kansai region, that is roughly equivalent to how "baka" ("idiot") is used in "standard" Japanese. AnimEigo has traditionally translated the "Osaka-ben" dialect into "Southern" English.

Kawamori Shoji notes that Hikaru's perception of Misa changes when he sees her show signs of vulnerability. The creators considered adding an encounter between Max and the giant Milia, but did not have the luxury of more time to develop subplots.

Episode 13 "Blue Wind" (November 2009)

According to Kawamori Shoji, the main Studio Nue and Artland staffers didn't work on this episode, although it did introduce the infamous "Lolicon 3."

The "Lolicon 3" is the nickname for the three Zentradi spies. See the "Secrets" section of the liner notes for more info.

Episode 14 "Global Report" (November 2009)

Along with Episode 17 "Phantasm," this episode was created to boost the episode count after the series was extended from 23 episodes to 36. During production, these episodes were actually numbered "13.5" and "15.5" respectively. This numbering gave the final episode a production number of 34, instead of the broadcast number of 36.

Episode 15 "Chinatown" (November 2009)

Notice the painted radio call sign and the extra passenger in one of the Valkyries escorting Captain Global's plane.

Minmay's manager is supposed to be modeled after Mikimoto Haruhiko.

If Minmay is telling the truth, the city of Yokohama opened the New Marine Tower, the world's tallest, in 1993. So far, no one has spotted a 900-meter-tall tower here... (The real-world Marine Tower in Yokohama was built only 106 meters tall in 1961.)

While New Marine Tower may be a figment of the creator's optimistic imagination, the Harbor View Hill Park (Minato-no-Mieru-Oka-Kooen) that Hikaru and Minmay visit is a tourist attraction that actually exists.

Kawamori Shoji says the staffers shifted the story to Minmay to offset Hikaru and Misa's developing relationship. The creators also wanted to introduce Kaifun as this stubborn personality.

Episode 16 "Kung Fu Dandy" (November 24, 2009)

This episode was the first written by Oonogi Hiroshi, an old schoolmate of creator Kawamori Shoji and character designer Mikimoto Haruhiko. He would later write the flashback novel "Misa Hayase: White Reminiscences," a collaborative work among these budding artists known as the "Young Trio."

Kawamori Shoji notes that the subplot between Misa and Kaifun was added in this episode to give Misa doubts about the military.

Episode 17 "Phantasm" (November 26, 2009)

Along with Episode 14 "Global Report," this episode was created to boost the episode count after the series was extended from 23 episodes to 36. Kawamori Shoji personally edited this compilation together.

According to Kawamori, the creators tried to emulate the fragmented dreams and their surreal logic in this compilation episode. That way, they could show that Hikaru was subconsciously turning towards Misa and away from Minmay.

Episode 18 "Pineapple Salad" (November 30, 2009)

The comely nurse Mizuhara Haruka is supposedly based on Matsuda Seiko, a widely popular singer and actress who had her debut in 1980.

Kawamori Shoji says the main focus of this episode is naturally, Focker and Claudia. The creators also wanted to show Max and Milia's superiority over all the other pilots and how Minmay is now living in a "somewhat different world from Hikaru."

Episode 19 "Burst Point" (December 6-7, 2009)

During preproduction, the creators nicknamed the omnidirectional barrier the "Sunriser."

Kawamori Shoji notes this episode also shows the gradual distancing and friction between Minmay and Hikaru, thanks to her cluelessness about the war and everything else. The creators even planned an argument between the two in the hospital during preproduction. They also wanted to demonstrate the ill-fated Kakizaki Hayao's well-meaning but uncharismatic nature.

Episode 20 "Paradise Lost" (December 2009)

We'll leave the name explanation of the Macrossnald's hamburger shop as an exercise for the viewer.

According to Kawamori Shoji, Macross is now viewed as a figurative new "Earth of culture," compared to the Earth of nature that just abandoned them.

Episode 21 "Micro Cosmos" (January 2010)

The director of Shao Pai Lon ("Little White Dragon") is named Shoo Blackstone after the Macross chief director Ishiguro Noboru. ("Shoo" is an alternate reading of the kanji for Noboru, and Ishiguro literally means "stone, black.") The real-life director even voiced his fictional counterpart.

This episode is one of several that the main creators did not work on very much. However, creator Kawamori Shoji notes that Hikaru and Misa's mutual discomfort in watching the movie creates another opportunity for the two to become closer.

Episode 22 "Love Concert" (January 10, 2010)

The creators planned the debut of the Destroid Phalanx for this episode. Since the Phalanx was developed on the Macross itself to answer the need for space defense, only the four other Destroids appeared previously.

Kawamori Shoji says that the Zentradi, with only a fragmented understanding of Protoculture, fear Humans even more now. He also notes that Hikaru's attempt to save Minmay reveals his real motive for enrolling in the military -- even as he now subconsciously pines for Misa. Minmay is just as confused, thanks to Kaifun's heavy-handedness.

Episode 23 "Drop Out" (January 2010)

When Macross finally debuted after over two years of preproduction, the staffers only planned for 23 episodes. Two months after the premiere, the sponsors greenlighted an extension to 36 episodes. (This episode would have aired earlier in the original plan since several filler episodes were inserted into the series after the extension was approved.) The original production title for this episode was "Fire Storm" -- a reference not only to the Zentradi infiltration of Macross, but also perhaps to a scene that the creators had to cut from the episode.

According to creator Kawamori Shoji, the creators were planning to end Minmay and Hikaru's relationship here, and even wanted Hikaru to symbolically burn his fanracer. However, they changed their plans when the green light was given to extend the series. The creators also wanted the three Zentradi refugees to see the devastation caused by war.

Episode 24 "Good-Bye Girl" (January 20-21, 2010)

"Booby Duck" is the call-sign for the VF-1 Valkyrie with FAST Pack parts (a.k.a. "Super Valkyrie"), although it is only used in this episode.

While the camera pans inside the game center, it pauses on a fellow with black sideburns at a driving simulation game. On the video game screen, a miniature yellow sedan with a black-hatted marksman weaves and swerves in traffic. Chris Meadows points out the uncanny resemblance to Rupan and Jigen of Rupan III fame. We'll leave the whole Rupan/Lupin argument for the liner notes for the movies we released.

As the saying goes, "absence makes the heart grow fonder." Creator Kawamori Shoji notes that this episode proves Hikaru and Misa's unvoiced feelings for each other.

Episode 25 "Virgin Road" (January 29-February 2010)

"Virgin Road" is the name Japanese people give to the aisle that the bride walks during the marriage ceremony. In theory, this is the last "road" that the bride walks as a virgin...

Creator Kawamori Shoji says the creators wanted to show that the peaceful coexistence of Humans and Zentradi is possible in this episode.

Episode 26 "Messenger" (February 11, 2010)

Notice the Macross Cinema billboard that causes Exedol to have a virtual cardiac arrest; the mothers of the Macross creators would have one, too. It seems that by 2010, "N. Ishiguro," "H. Mikimoto," "S. Kawamori," and "I. Itano" will be directing and shooting risqu flicks.

According to Kawamori Shoji, Minmay is starting to realize that the war is not a distant abstraction but a terrible reality.

Episode 27 "Love Drifts Away" (February 11, 2010)

When the series premiered, the staff planned this episode as the final of 23 episodes, the result of budget cuts during preproduction. However, the series surprised the sponsor with its success during the first two months, and the sponsor approved an extension to a full 36 episodes. This episode moved from number 23 to 27 by extending the storyline and adding two episodes of recycled footage.

Look for references to Minmay voice actress Iijima Mari, Gainax key animator (and future Neon Genesis Evangelion director) Anno Hideaki, animation director Itano Ichiroo, and DaiCon IV (the convention where Itano and the Gainax crew strutted their stuff in the elaborate opening animation short).

Also making special appearances in the climactic battle are several non-Macross ships designed by Studio Nue, a radome-equipped VEFR-1 Valkyrie nicknamed "Funny Chinese," and a mysterious trans-dimensional mecha known only as the "Orguss Valkyrie."

Kawamori Shoji says that this episode epitomizes the main theme of "a small love triangle against the backdrop of great battles."

Episode 28 "My Album" (October 2011)

Kawamori Shoji notes that the creators wanted to portray a peaceful lull almost two years after the last episode, and even move the story away from the Macross.

Episode 29 "Lonely Song" (October 2011)

The digital watch seen in this episode was designed by "Myd Sead" -- it's no small coincidence that the Studio Nue staffers are fans of Blade Runner, the Alien movies, and other works designed by a certain Syd Mead... (In real life, the watch was created by mecha designer Miyatake Kazutaka)

According to Kawamori Shoji, Minmay idealizes her relationship with Hikaru, especially in the wake of her shaky one with Kaifun. This episode also shows the growing discontent of the Zentradi.

Episode 30 "Viva Maria" (October 2011)

Kawamori Shoji says the creators wanted to portray the "new humanity" through the path blazed by Max and Milia.

Episode 31 "Satan's Dolls" (November 2011)

The crew member who is constantly harassing Shammy is named Machizaki Kenichi, supposedly after the bespectacled Macross series script supervisor Matsuzaki Kenichi.

Kawamori Shoji notes that Minmay now feels frustrated with her dilemma between Hikaru and Kaifun.

Episode 32 "Broken Heart" (November 2011)

According to Kawamori Shoji, Minmay is shocked that Kamjin is unaffected by her singing after years of stirring emotions in both Humans and Zentradi.

Episode 33 "Rainy Night" (2011)

Kawamori Shoji says a retrospective on Focker and Claudia's past was always planned -- even before the series was extended. He felt their relationship foreshadowed Hikaru and Misa's own.

Episode 34 "Private Time" (2011)

The name of the puppy Misa sees is "Shane."

Kawamori Shoji notes that Hikaru is taking his relationship with Misa for granted, even as Misa's patience and understanding is tested. Kaifun also walks away since he feels held back by his brotherly figure role for Minmay.

Episode 35 "Romanesque" (December 25, 2011)

Onogi City is a not-so-subtle nod to Oonogi Hiroshi, one of the scriptwriters for the later part of the series.

Oonogi, who was a school buddy of Kawamori and Mikimoto from junior high through college, came aboard the project after the sponsors extended the series to 36 episodes.

In the toy stand run by the former Zentradi spies, look for toys of Kaitei Gunkan/Atragon, Minky Momo, Godzilla, Ironman No. 28/Gigantor, and Mighty Atom/Astroboy (whose 1980s remake was directed by Macross chief director Ishiguro Noboru). Hiding off to the side of the stand is a nod to Tamiya, a famous Japanese plastic model outfit. Also look for "Harakiryu," a play on "Valkyrie" and "Harakiri."

This episode demonstrates how Christmas is celebrated differently in Japan than in some other countries. Naturally, stores eagerly take advantage of the secular commercialism that the holiday now embodies for non-Christians. Still, celebrations are limited mostly to gift-giving for children and workmates. In fact, Christmas is not a Japanese work holiday, with it being sandwiched between the current emperor's birthday and the all-important New Year's break.

However, a recent Japanese trend (spurred by commercialism naturally) does dictate that people celebrate Christmas Eve with dinner and a Christmas cake -- *especially* for young couples. Arguably, Christmas Eve now holds the same significance among Japanese lovebirds that Valentine's Day or New Year's Eve holds among North Americans.

According to Kawamori Shoji, Minmay goes to Hikaru since she's afraid of being alone. Unfortunately for her, Hikaru is still struggling with his own life. Meanwhile, the creators set up Kamjin for the series finale.

Episode 36 "Farewell to Tenderness" (January 2012)

The creators deliberately decided not to show the title of this episode on-screen. The title is a reference to the Minmay song used to close the episode and the series.

Originally, the creators wanted to end the series with the launch of the SDF-2 and the newly-wed Ichijo Misa in her new captain's uniform. Mechanical designer Miyatake Kazutaka and character designer Mikimoto Haruhiko even drew new designs appropriate for the occasion. Unfortunately, the sequence was never animated. The creators finally got the chance to redesign and animate the SDF-2 Megaroad launch (along with the Minmay Sayonara Concert that was planned but canceled for the "Do You Remember Love?" movie ending) four years later. The conclusion of Hikaru, Misa, and Minmay's story appears in the 1987 music video "The Super Dimension Fortress Macross: Flash Back 2012."

Kawamori Shoji says Hikaru finally makes his long-awaited choice -- between Misa and her colonization mission, or Minmay and a life away from the military. Even though Minmay has matured much in the past two years, Hikaru chooses Misa because he is no longer ruled by "fleeting emotions." Still, to Kawamori, the three characters represent equally important aspects of the new human race. "Minmay is 'the side of humanity which creates culture' while [Hikaru] and Misa are 'the side of humanity which protects culture.'"

Secrets of Macross

The Lolicon Three:

If you combine the first names of the three Zentradi spies in Japanese, you get "Warerarorikonda" -- which means "We're pedophiles."


The Protoculture was the first sentient race to evolve in this universe, about one million years ago. It created the giant Zentradi to wage proxy warfare on behalf of its Stellar Republic. Unfortunately, schisms within the Stellar Republic later erupted into full-blown civil war. The subsequent fall of the Republic came about when two armies reduced it to ashes -- the Zentradi and the Supervision Armies. The term Protoculture first came up during preproduction story development when the creators researched cultural studies.


Zentradi are giant warriors created by the Protoculture to fight its battles. The typical Zentradi warrior is five times the height of a Human, but is only as smart as the typical Human primary schoolchild. The total number of Zentradi today is unknown, but it is estimated that there are one to two thousand main fleets, each of which is led by a mothership of the same class as Bodolzaa's. Zentradi has been spelled several different ways, including Zentradi (first Macross notes), Zjentohlauedy (later merchandise for first Macross and then the "Do You Remember Love?" movie), Zentradi (Tatsunoko script translations for overseas markets), and Zentrady (Nichimo's language stamp kit).

The Supervision Army:

The Supervision Army has been the mortal foes of the Zentradi for the past 500,000 years. The two factions were created during the dissolution of the Protoculture's Stellar Republic.

Reaction Weaponry:

Reaction theory forms the foundation for all the advanced power systems and weaponry on both sides of Space War I. Humans uncovered the reaction process while dissecting the ship later named Macross. The intentionally vague "reaction" concept was used as an euphemism to avoid mentioning the words "nuclear" on-screen. According to Kawamori Shoji, the use of nuclear weaponry by the "good guys" was considered taboo by Japanese television stations.

Ataria Island:

South Ataria Island is the fictional island where the Macross crash-landed. It is located at the "southernmost tip of the Ogasawara Islands." In real life, the southern tip of those islands is Minami Ioo Jima, otherwise known as South Iwo-jima. Though the island is a good several hundred kilometers from the center of Tokyo, it's considered part of the city and under the Tokyo government's jurisdiction.


GERWALK stands for "Ground Effective Reinforcement of Winged Armament by Locomotive Knee-joint," which is "Engrish" for the reconfiguration of a fighter aircraft into a surface effect vehicle by means of variable knee-joints. This intermediary mode was discovered by accident during the test flights of the original VF-1 Valkyrie.

The Unification Wars:

The Anti-United Nations Military Organization was the most prominent faction during the Unification Wars. It was responsible for hijacking a space destroyer and wiping out the crew of the Mars Base.


The Battroid is the humanoid mode of variable vehicles, primarily developed to combat giants. The term was coined from the combination of "battle" and "android."


Destroid is the common term for walking weapons developed primarily for ground warfare using Macross Overtechnology. The term was coined from the combination of "destroy" and "android."


Overtechnology is the generic term for technology developed from research on the fallen spaceship. It is often abbreviated as OT or OTM (Overtechnology of Macross).

OTEC is the corporation assigned to develop Overtechnology from the fallen spaceship. A notable accomplishment is the Earth-made reaction power system.

In fact, she went to live with her uncle and aunt (who ran a restaurant on South Ataria Island, site of the fallen Macross) because her aunt was more supportive than her parents. She thought her hopes were dashed when she, Hikaru, and the entire island were unceremoniously transported into deep space, but her surprise win in the Miss Macross Contest revives them.

Note: Minmay's character role is partially based on the World War II song "Lili Marlene." This song transcended cultural boundaries and battlefronts to gain popularity among both American and German soldiers. (The song was a German poem set to music and later sung in English by German-born Marlene Dietrich.)

Maximillian Jenius
Age : 16 years old Maximillian is simply without equal in a Valkyrie cockpit. Even without the guidance of a mentor (as Hikaru had in Roy Focker), he rapidly rises in the ranks and eventually leads his own squadron. His unusually deep voice is a great asset in his second-favorite occupation, picking up women, although he meets his match in the form of a Zentradi ace pilot. The marriage of Max and Milia help bring the Zentradi to the Space War I truce table and also beget seven daughters.

Note: Max's family name is based on the English word "genius" ("tensai" in Japanese).

Age : 15 years old Milia is renowned as the "Zentradi ace Milia" even among her male counterparts, and respected for her prowess in her powered suit. Kamjin's boasting and her own desire for challenge goad her into seeking out an enemy ace pilot who may be her equal. This search gradually becomes such an obsession that she requests to be inserted in the Macross as a spy, with the ulterior motive of confronting Max Jenius. After an unusual courtship, the two marry and have seven daughters.

Roy Focker
Age : 29 years old Roy first flew as a stunt pilot in the air circus lead by Ichijo Hikaru's father, and later joined the United Nations Forces as a fighter pilot. Despite his long absence during the Unification Wars and the death of Hikaru's father, Hikaru still remained close to Roy and considered him his sempai. After the end of that war, he involved himself in the VF-X development project (the predecessor to the VF-1 Valkyrie), and his experience earned him the command of the VF-1 Skull Squadron aboard the CVS-101 Prometheus.

Kamjin Kravshera
Age : 23 years old Officially, Kamjin is the commander of the 7th Aerial Armored Division of the Gorg Main Fleet's 109th Branch Fleet. However, he is more infamous among the Zentradi ranks for his impatient trigger finger and lack of concern for the lives of his own troops. This has earned Kamjin the nickname "Ally-Killer." He himself prefers to be called "Boss" by his subordinates, regardless of their positions.

Britai Kridanik
Age : 34 years old Britai Kridanik was fulfilling his mission of searching for Supervision Army survivors when he encountered the Macross and the Humans who rebuilt it on February 7th, 1999. In the resulting Space War I, he pursued the Macross relentlessly, even as his orders changed with every new revelation concerning the Humans. His defection from the Zentradi Bodolzaa Fleet and approval of the peace treaty with Earth's United Nations helped the allied forces win the war in the battle of February 11th, 2010. In the aftermath of Space War I, he helped capture a Zentradi factory satellite for the new United Nations in October 2011.

Exedol Folmo
Age : Unknown Exedol Folmo, a Zem First Class Official of the Britai Fleet, is the "Archivist," a living memory bank. His memory capacity is said to surpass any electronic device that ever existed, as he keeps details of every combat in the Zentradi history for instant recall.

After encountering humanity, Exedol miclones himself and will become instrumental in bringing peace between the UN and Zentradi forces.

After the war, he becomes a chief consultant to Captain Global in an effort to make progresss in the research of miclone cultures. What he uncovers about the roots of Zentradi and Humans may prove to be disturbing to both races.

Macross! Macross!

The brave youths who arise
Fight to protect their loved ones
All through the days of their voyage
As the war rages on.

"Will you love me tomorrow?"

Slashing through the Darkness,
Their destination is
The blue planet, shining in the distance.

Macross! Macross...! Macross!

To the Darkness far beyond the stars,
Taking along the children of the universe,
The Arrow of Fate shoots off
To seek an end to the timeless war.

Macross! Macross!

Vermillion rays of sunlight and lullabies...
The sleeping newborn and mother's breast...
Heroes fight to protect their loved ones.

"Will you love me tormorrow?"

Slashing through the Darkness,

Will there be a day when it will fade away?

Macross! Macross...!

What lies there for me after today?

We all keep on running 'til the end

Among the days that leave today behind,
I'll be glad if tomorrow comes.
I will keep on running
 towards the light that shines far in the distance.

I won't stop running anymore,
 as we'll one day meet again.
We all keep on running 'til the end
 even if the goal is not in sight.

The bright future shines
 in the hopeful day that is tomorrow.
I will keep on running
 towards the light that shines far in the distance.

Whoosh, whoosh! Whoosh, whoosh!
My boyfriend is a pilot.

Shining and making a rapid descent...
The jet engine going BOOM, a rapid ascent,
As it makes a long tail of jet stream cloud.
Two hearts come together.
It's a love sign in the big blue sky.

"I love you, you love me?"
But he's head over heels
For his plane, instead of me.

Whoosh, whoosh! Whoosh, whoosh!
My boyfriend is a pilot.

"Zero-G Love, Zero-G Love!"
After school with my boyfriend, on my way home,
At the usual street corner where we say goodbye,
Seeing that no one else is in sight
He kisses me, out of the blue.

I get mad at him, or so I make him believe...
But... But... But...
I feel dizzy and I'm feeling warm fuzzies.

"Zero-G Love, Zero-G Love!"
"4, 3, 2, 1, Zero-G Love!"
Riding on the wind, my body flies high.

At a cafe terrace, painted by the vermillion sun,
Along with the fragrance of Turkish coffee,
The somber tango rhythm fills the air.

As lonely as I may be, if I dance
It will bring a breath of fresh air into my heart.

If you're not coming and you keep me waiting
I wonder who I'll be dancing with?

"Silver Moon, Red Moon"
You are so cold, Shanghai Dandy.
The smoke of Gitanes gets in my eyes.

As the night makes the gypsy violin cry
Two glasses and a wine bottle
Belittle my burning passion for you.

As lonely as I may be, if I toast
Even a little flame can dance against the wind.

If you're not coming and you keep me waiting
I wonder who I'll be drinking with?

"Silver Moon, Red Moon"
You are so cold, Shanghai Dandy.
The smoke of Gitanes gets in my eyes.

Time drifts away.
Love drifts away.
Looking at me so sadly,
You're off to war, without a doubt.

All the men, everyone,
 as if possessed by the devil,
With mouths drawn tight, with fiery eyes,
They march in step.

I know I will be left behind,
In the name of war,
In the name of pride.

Time drifts away.
Love drifts away.
Here I am, withering away.

Time drifts away.
Love drifts away.
Looking at you so pitifully,
I shall detest war, always.

All the women, everyone,
 will hold on together,
With teeth clenched, and standing firm,
For the sake of the children.

I know you will return one day.
Please stop the fight,
In the name of life.

Time drifts away.
Love drifts away.
Before I wither away.

You walk ahead ignoring me.
I pout and follow you
Along the vast, dazzling beach.

You say that I love him,
But I love you more.
We're always together at the Sunset Beach.

Ocean breeze, big waves...
As the thought of him begins to occupy my heart.
He jumps up in joy.
Surf, sun, pendant...
It's an afternoon at the Sunset Beach.

With a surfboard on his head
He's showing off his suntanned skin
As girls surround him.

The pendant I gave him
Is replaced by someone else's.
What a lonely day at the Sunset Beach.

Sea breeze softens, twilight...
I still feel the heated sand with my bare feet.
I'm giving up on that flirty boy
As I wait for you, the wonderful one.
It's a time for daydreaming at the Sunset Beach.

My aching heart feels a draft blowing through.
Sometimes we had a few quarrels,
Yet your tenderness remained the same.
That was something I couldn't bear.

Silently, I left your empty room,
To find myself in a train station with
 nowhere to go.
At last I understand.

Your tenderness is your weakness reversed.
I've changed and I can't go back,
So I'm saying good-bye.

Our hearts began drifting apart
 without our knowing.
In the past I would've been content,
 with everyday being the same
 as the one before.

I'm leaving and you'll be alone.
A new life awaits us.
There's no going back now.

I don't need your tenderness anymore.
Nothing can fill this void in my heart,
So please don't hold me back.

Always and forever, by your side.
Always and forever, I'll be near you.
Look at the sky and the mother earth!
Never forget this day.

Away, away, fly away,
To the shining blue planet far away.
Fly away and be with me,
I beg you please.

If fighting is our destiny,
May fighting be our way of life.
Don't look back. Don't stop for a moment.
Never forget your pride.

Away, away, fly away,
Can't you see your future ahead of you?
Fly away and be with me,
I beg you please.
