So, I'm watching this and... I'm on episode 10 so far and this is really, REALLY boring. The characters are kinda okay, the world itself is okay too, but the story so far is so uninteresting that I'm trying my best to keep watching and try to enjoy it but I can't.
Does Macross 7 get any better beyond this point or can I leave it to later and watch Macross Zero and Frontier already before Delta starts airing?
And what is the importance of Macross 7 to the lore of the franchise anyway? Is it kinda like ZZ Gundam is for the Universal Century (it has it share of important moments for later entries in the series, but can be skipped), for example?
Really? I hope so, because I kinda like the characters and want to see interesting things with them. Even don't liking it, I plan to watch until the end anyway.
So, just like ZZ Gundam as I mentioned in my example, I think?
Yeah, things will happen, and then you'll be in for about 12-15 episodes of more boring repetitive shit. Like, pretty much every single episode will follow the same formula.
Macross 7 would be a really fun anime if all the worthless bloat was cut out and we'd have like 13 episodes of quality content. Alas, we got this.
This, yet there still a couple of episodes where almost nothing happen in story.
I would also recommend you check the extra episodes when you get around the 44 episodes or so. The 7 Plus shorts are also worth watching for some background bits.
And have you watch Macross Plus yet?
