Please note: I am reviewing episodes 1-36, the first season

Robotech, also known as Macross is a very old anime. Fans of flashy and modern anime may be turned off by the simple animation and etchy quality of Robotech. But give it a try. Robotech was aired in the 80s, so it is pretty ancient looking. Nonetheless, Robotech has a very very developed storyline and action. (Although I have not heard the Japanese version of it...) The English dub is fairly good.

Robotech for the most part is a giant robot anime filled with incessant explosions and robot battles.

The story starts with an alien ship crash landing on Earth. Earthlings at war at the time (probably World War III) decided to stop fighting for fear of alien invasion. Scientists and engineers began salvaging the ship and restoring or rebuilding its technology. Along with the technology of the ship they gained "Robotechnology" which transformed normal jet fighters into Transformers-like giant robots. 10 years (if I'm not mistaken) pass and Earth is about to launch the ship, SDF1, into space. Suddenly, aliens finally catch up with the stray ship and attempt to retrive the ship. Which leads to alien vs. human robot battles. The anime starts on the ship on Earth, moving to Pluto, all the way back to Earth, back out into space, and back down to Earth.

Robotech also has an emotionally charged storyline. The main character, just a young boy, who gets caught between intergalactic forces, decides to enlist in the army, and fights for what's right while living in a love triangle. There are many emotional parts in the story (especially, the death of one of the main characters, which becomes a high point for almost a fourth of the season).

Art is classic anime style, but anyone who dislikes classic anime style should take heed before watching this. Being old, it also has a less developed frame-rate (nothing will just look super smooth and fast, that's all...)

Music and sounds, in my opinion of course, are great. The soundtrack is very powerful and matches with the mood and situations very well in the anime.

Story is great, and concept is very developed.

Check this gem of anime (It aired on Toonami around the Moltar-TOM era)
