** A low budget, coupled with the fact that they had to stretch the story out over 50 episodes when it would have done much better as a standard 26 episode series, made for a lot of recycled footage and slow pacing. ''Macross [=FB7=]'' does a pretty good job of trimming a lot of fat from the series, and shows what could have been if they'd have made a ''Macross 7'' movie in the vein of ''Anime/MacrossDoYouRememberLove'' and the two ''Anime/MacrossFrontier'' movies.
