No I dislike (hate is too strong since it is fairly entertaining.) it because It
was a somewhat cynical attempt by Big West to cash in on Macross nostalgia by
creating a sequel without any imput from the original creators. Add to that poor
animation quality, and generally mediocre mecha designs (except for the valkyries)
and you get one show posthumusly pronounced to be an "Alternate Story"
