Macross Plus

 

Macross Plus

 

Released in 1994, Macross Plus is set thirty years after the original and almost completely on the colonial planet Eden. The tone of this series is different from prior entries and focuses more on drama than plot, but there are some similarities. Much like the original series, a love triangle is present here, as is lots of music. This time, the love triangle involves two men and one woman who all have a shared past. The series is directed by Shoji Kawamori and Shinichiro Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo), with an excellent soundtrack from famed composer Yoko Kanno (Cowboy Bebop, Turn A Gundam). One of the purposes of this series was to update the look of the Macross franchise to pave the way for the TV series Macross 7, which debuted in the same year. In 1995, Kawamori released a special feature film version which fits his original intention for the project. Manga Entertainment released the series in the U.S. soon after its release in Japan, and it has become one of their bestselling titles. In 1999, Manga re-released the series on DVD and followed up with the movie in 2002.
