Macross Frontier: Anime Classic, Remade

Currently finished: Episode 4

There are just too many formulas that are directly taken from the classic Macross (Robotech part I). Like I said last time, it contains all Macross essential elements. Now, add one more: the plot.

I hope it doesn't end up becoming a re-telling of the original Macross series with different setting, different character. So far it sure looks like it's heading that way.
Even though it looks like they're plagiarizing their own story, it is nevertheless still a good series so far. Maybe because the original Macross is so old that the "freshness" alone from Macross Frontier is enough to overcome any shadow that is caused by their "plagiarism".

To be honest, I was not expecting much from this series. I didn't expect it to last me for more than 4 episodes. But this first 4 episodes exceeded my expectation so much that I'm actually eager to see what's coming next.

New rating (of 5): 4 (net gain: +0.25) ~ Much better than I expected
