As a kid I'd wake up extra early in the mornings to watch Robotech, which remains my favorite Americanized mecha anime adventure. Now I can see it any time I please!
Robotech: the Macross Saga is the first in a series that Harmony Gold chopped together from three unrelated series in Japan. Macross Saga springs from what was Superdimension Fortress Macross in Japan. In Robotech we meet the crew of the SDF-1, a giant spaceship that crashed to Earth. Packed with technology they doesn't understand, the humans rebuild the starship. When the Zentradi, an race created for War arrives, the earthlings take to the stars in SDF, as our last defense.
I've just started watching again and it kinda holds up. I loved this show so much as a kid, however, that might just be me.
