Just sat through the first four episodes of Macross 7. I didn't hate it -

guitar WHILE PILOTING A MECHA is one of the most stupid things I've seen in
anime), but Basara irritates me. Keeping in mind that I have a tolerance
for bad anime (I actually kinda liked Gundam ZZ and Gundam X), should I
keep watching? Does Basara eventually stop acting like a dick?

P.S. Upon seeing Basara's red Valkyrie, I had a scary thought of Char

this, should he get away with it on account of being Char, or severely
punished? (BTW, I read a fanfic that mentioned Duo playing music on
Deathscythe's external speakers during a battle, but at least THAT was a

Watt-Evans' Law of Literary Creation: There is no idea so stupid or
hackneyed that a sufficiently-talented writer can't get a good story out of

Feist's Corollary: There is no idea so brilliant or original that a
sufficiently-untalented writer can't screw it up.

Morrison's Corollary: There is no idea that a sufficiently-talented writer
has made into a good story that can't become annoying in the sequels.

Holliday's Corollary: There is no plot so stunningly original that a
journalist can't make it sound hackneyed.
