Perhaps you should read my post again before you start dishing out
accusations (and deny everyone else the freedom of expressing their own

DID enjoy it. However, my feeling is that many people did not like it simply
because it is

B: The creators dismissed it as an alternate universe.
C: The characters were less memorable.

I like Macross II, but it breaks less new ground than Macross Plus, which I
also liked. MPlus had a different tone from the previous ones AS WELL AS
catering to original fans.

a lot are coming from.

Dunno about that, but I do think Gunbuster had one of the best last episodes
I've ever seen.
