>>133082252 Because transforming fighter jets and j-pop and cheesy love triangles. It's a shallow, feel-good franchise. I love it.
>>133081502 The two most obvious starting points are either SDF or Frontier. SDF because it's the first and gives you a solid grounding in the core themes present in Macross. However, the rampant QUALITY is oftentimes a turnoff. As an alternative, you can go with Frontier, which also gives you a solid grounding in the core themes present in Macross, though it's also packed with references that you will miss.
My personal Babby's First Macross was Frontier. I loved it, and watched the entire franchise starting from SDF onwards, and loved it all, too.
>>133082336 Do not listen to this man but do listen to Basara's song.
You have to start with Macross Zero, since its chronologically the first Macross, even before the "Macross" itself left Earth. Diving in the most interesting part of Macross Franchize - UN vs Anti-UN war, and Bird Aliens.
Zero is required watching for Frontier also, since they litterally film Zero movie retelling during Frontier and other important stuff.
After Zero, logically comes SDF where Macross lifts off and Earth is destroyed. SDF is core Macross and must be watched at any rate. Unlike Mobile Suit Gundam, it aged well and still looks good and fun to watch.
Do You Remember Love? - is a movie retelling of SDF, repeating much of same events, but having cult status as Star Wars has in west. Well worth watching, though not absolutely required.
Macross: Plus and Macross: 7 are question of taste. They are very different from other Macross shows same was Turn A gundam is from Gundam Franchize. You can skip both since Plus is side story. 7 is required for Frontier understanding, but stil stands out too much to normally recommend it.
And then logically, Frontier - the modern Macross that is while somewhat disappointing absolutely worth watching thanks to Yoko Kanno.

Diving in the most interesting part of Macross Franchize - UN vs Anti-UN war, and Bird Aliens. I wholly disagree. It brings up plots that are pretty much disconnected from any other Macross but Frontier. It makes no sense to go from Zero to SDF because SDF feels nothing like Zero and Zero sensibly fleshes out nothing from SDF. >muh Focker Exactly.
FWIW, you can actually skip most the OVAs and watch them afterwards.
(Frontier -->) SDF --> 7 --> Frontier
The OVAs (Zero, Plus, all the 7 side materials including The Galaxy Is Calling Me and Dynamite 7) can pretty much be watched any time after starting the franchise, with the caveat that the 7 side materials be watched after finishing 7.
The movies are completely optional but highly recommended.
>Macross II Watch whenever you'd like, with knowledge that it is explicitly non-canon.
Are you here for the mechs or the singing? >>Mechs does QUALITY Animation bug you? >yes SDFM>DYRL>II>Plus Watch nothing else >No DYRL>II>Plus stop >>Music DYRL>Plus>7 &its accompanying shit>Frontier & its shit>Delta
