Ok, now I love Macross (referring to the series Macross, not the section of Robotech that was based off of SDF Macross) as much as the next mecha fan but after reading most of M7 and watching all of Macross Zero I'm inclined to think that they need to go with a new director.
Now most people that have seen all of Macross Zero agree on 2 things: It looks awesome and the ending absolutely bites!!!
Why is that??? Personally I agree with one fans opinion that it has become far too spiritual. M7 started it (with the whole spiritua thing) and it continued in MZ.
Enough already. Get a new director, but keep the Mecha Designer. We need a new story. That is a fact. Maybe one that finally tells us what happened to the SDF-2 Megaroad.
