In North America, it was prevented from being released properly for a very long time because the series was dubbed in the 80s by Harmony Gold as the [[CutAndPasteTranslation first season of]] ''{{Anime/Robotech}}''. For some time, Harmony Gold continued to block efforts to bring anything ''Macross''-related to North America and was happy to file lawsuits against anything that even looked like it such as ''TabletopGame/BattleTech'', directly contradicting decisions made in Japanese legal courts. However Creator/StreamlinePictures and Creator/AnimEigo were able to release subtitled editions of the series to VHS and DVD in North America, as well as Madman in Australia, and Creator/ADVFilms produced an uncut English dub in the early 2000s. These releases are now out-of-print though. In 2014, Harmony Gold themselves (alongside partners A&E and Lionsgate) released Vol. 1 of a new DVD series featuring unedited Macross episodes (in Japanese and English) alongside the ''Robotech'' versions. However, this was a manufacture-on-demand release and Vol. 2 has yet to be solicited. In 2016, the series, in subbed form, was released on Amazon Video.

* BilingualBonus: The three Zentradi spies are named Warera, Loli, and Conda, which put together reads as, "We have a [[{{Lolicon}} Lolita Complex]]" in Japanese... whether or not they actually ''do'' is never said, though they DO wind up being avid fans of Lynn Minmay.

* BitterWeddingSpeech: Averted Subverted by Captain Global.Global. At Max and Milia's wedding he starts talking about how it's hard for humanity to forgive the Zentradi for all the people they've killed, and everyone is afraid of the seemingly hateful direction his speech is going in, but he quickly makes it clear that humanity must disregard any hard feelings in favor of the hope for coexistence represented by Max and Milia's love.

* FourStarBadass: BreetaiBreetai is an imperious commander Zentradi fleet, and proves formidable in hand-to-hand combat against humans piloting Valkyries.
* FourthDateMarriage: In episode 25, Max Jenius falls for Milia [[LoveAtFirstSight at first sight]] when he meets her in an arcade and beats her in a Valkyrie simulation game. He gets her to agree to meet him in a park later, not realizing she's a Zentradi pilot who holds a grudge against him for beating her in two dogfights. She challenges him to a KnifeFight, which he wins, and then--undeterred by the fact that she's an alien enemy who just tried to kill him--he succeeds right then and there in making her fall head over heels for him! Max goes to Hikaru for advice and tells him they've already decided to get married, and when Hikaru tells him that he can't marry someone he just met--especially since she's a Zentradi whose species' psychology and way of life are totally different from humans--Max insists that love will overcome their differences. Captain Global sponsors a lavish and highly publicized wedding for them because he sees it as a good opportunity to promote the idea that humans and Zentradi can coexist peacefully.
