Anime Code: F

A giant alien spaceship crashed on a small island in the South Pacific.  Humanity takes it and rebuilds it for their use utilizing the incredible technology found within it called Robotechnology.  However, no sooner had they completed construction, but the species who originally created it comes to retrieve it.  Naturally, they are invaders and humanity sets out to stop them.  During an emergency take off, the ship, two aircraft carriers, an entire city and part of the ocean surrounding the city accidentally gets transported to the other side of the Solar System and must get back while avoiding the alien space fleet.  And that's only the beginning.

Review: Robotech, along with Gundam and Transformers, set the standard for animes to come.  It is one of the legends and a must-have for any anime collector.  Where else would you find battles using music as a weapon?  Where else would you find a city inside a spaceship?  Where else would you find a teenager playing a big part in an intergalactic war... okay, don't answer that last one.  The Macross saga is my favorite.  But if you really want the full Robotech experience, get them all.  I am proud to own one of the greatest animes of all time.

Action Level: 5/5
Giant robots battle it out in deep space.  I know I've heard that somewhere before, I wonder where?

Romance Level: 4/5
The love triangle between Rick, Lisa, and Min-Mei was done quietly but perfectly.  They didn't focus the entire series on it or puts it in bits and pieces.  All the relationships were well-played.

Comedy Level: 3/5
Min-Mei is the funniest character.  Don't ask me why, I'll just go off onto another rant.

Adult Level: 2/5
It's not as violent as you would come to expect.

Drama Level: 2/5
This is where I think they could've used some more improvement.  Times where I thought drama should've been inserted into had no drama.

Overall Level: 4/5
Like I said, get it all to get the full Robotech experience.
