Macross II

 

Super Dimension Fortress Macross II: Lovers, Again

 

In 1992, the tenth anniversary of Macross came around, and Big West decided to create the 6 episode OVA series Macross II: Lovers, Again without the involvement of Shoji Kawamori or Studio Nue. Because of this, the series is not considered to be part of the official timeline and is relegated to alternate universe status. Directed by Kenichi Yatagai (Megazone 23 Part III) and Ken'ichi Yatsuya, the series features character designs by original series designer Haruhiko Mikimoto, along with scripts from original series writer Sukehiro Tomita. In this series, 80 years have passed since the end of the war in the original Macross series. Earth has been re-developed by humans and micloned Zentradi, but it faces a new threat at the hands of the Mardook, an alien race that uses music to control their Zentradi slaves. The series met a poor reception in Japan, but it did slightly better in the U.S. when it was released by US Renditions. Following the collapse of that company, the rights of the series went to Manga Entertainment, which re-released it in 1995 on VHS and in 2000 on DVD.
