Cartoon Production Information:

Released in the United States in considerably altered form as "Robotech."

The 36-episode series was successful in other media, as designer Shoji Kawamori demanded beautiful but practical machinery that could be sold as toys. Numerous record spinoffs made a star of voice actress Mari Iijima, who portrayed Chinese pop star Lin Minmei.

A 115-minute theatrical "Macross" was later released, as was "Macross 2," a series of six 30-minute TV episodes.

The franchise was revived with Macross Plus (1994), with four 40-minute episodes, directed by Shoji Kawamori and written by Keiko Nobumoto. New characters were Isamu Dyson, Guld Bowman, Myung Fan Lone and Sharon Apple.

Original videos were re-edited into the 115-minute "Macross Plus: The Movie" (1995), which added extra scenes, but removed much of the battles.

A TV follow-up, "Macross 7," directed by Tetsuro Amino, was released in 1994, and contained 49 25-minute episodes. This included elements of a rejected plot for the original Macross series. Featured characters were Max and Miria Jenius, supporting characters from the original series, their daughter Mylene, Protodevlin, Basara Nekki and his pop group Fire Bomber. This led to several spinoffs, including Haruhiko Mikimoto's "Macross 7: Trash" (featuring Max Jenius's illegitimate son Shiba) and the 30-minute "movie" "Macross 7: The Galaxy is Calling Me" (1995).

Released directly to video were "Macross 7: Encore" (55 minutes), consisting of two unbroadcast TV episodes, and "Macross Dynamite 7" (1997), a new story, introducing Elma and Liza in four 30-minute episodes.

A digital sequel, with the working title of "Macross 3D," was announced for 2001, to be directed by Takeshi Mori. Characters included Redline, Lorin and Karno.

Other spinoffs includes a music video, "Flashback 2012" (1987), Minmei's "farewell concert," which included bonus epilogue footages of the characters' lives. The theatrical feature "Macross: Do You Remember Love?" (1984), also titled "Clash of the Bionoids," was depicted as a film made in the Macross universe about events in the Macross series. Max's eldest daughter Comiria starred in the "Macross 2036" video game, followed by another video game, "Eternal Love Story."

A video, "Chjik ysai Macross II Lovers, Again (Macross II: Lovers Again)" (1992), was disowned by its creators. It featured Hibiki Kanzaki, Silvie Gena, the Marduk and Ishtar.

A live-action film version of the original series, "Macross: Final Outpost- Earth," was planned as a U.S.-Japanese project. Reportedly, it was scripted by David Newman. However, it has been in limbo for several years.

Traditional, Hand-drawn Animation.
