Wow, great show, so maybe not the most original story, Boy meets Girl, they hate each other to start with, set against the backdrop of a war. I think you can see where this is going?|
Still it looks so good ,killer use of CGI for the battles. The normal fighters(F-14 and Mig-29) look good but the variable fighters are really stunning, the CGI allows a very fluid camera, that changing viewpoint, spinning around and when the fighters transform, they have got a scary amount of detail. Missiles and explosion, all very kinetic, I don't think you could do that using 2D animation or at least not without a huge number of people.
Episode 3 ended on a real cliffhanger, can't wait for number 4. Bandai should release this in English ASAP.
MACROSS ZERO Official Web Site in Japanese but lots of nice pictures.
