* ShownTheirWork: Creator/ShojiKawamori was an engineering student and, according to some sources, graduated with a degree in aircraft engineering. The result is that most Macross variable fighter designs have very plausible looking fighter modes compared to most TransformingMecha.

* CoolPlane: The reason for the franchise's existence. Special mention to VF-1. It's based on the real life CoolPlane F-14 Tomcat, and it takes its emblem from the VF-84 Jolly Rogers, who did indeed do the skull and crossbones.

In 1984, a movie adaptation, ''Anime/MacrossDoYouBelieveInLove'', was released. Despite making significant changes to both the plot and designs, the film is regarded at least as highly as the original show.

The show was originally scheduled to run for 48 episodes, but budget cuts due to a sponsor dropping out then forced a projected cut to 26. However, with a last-second infusion of money from Creator/TatsunokoProduction ([[NoExportForYou which inadvertently spawned a never-ending legal headache for all involved]]) and the realization that the show had become a huge hit, ten more episodes were produced.

In 2009, a manga adaptation of the original series was started, drawn and written by Haruhiko Mikimoto, that kept the original designs (though often favoring those used in the movie) while jettisoning some of the more {{Zeerust}} aspects (everyone ''finally'' has cellphones in that far-off year of 2009, for instance)

One trope that the show is particularly known for is the LoveTriangle. In fact, it has been described by ShojiKawamori, mechanical designer and co-creator of the series as a "love story set amongst the backdrop of great battles."

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 StreamlinePictures and AnimEigo were able to release subtitled editions of the series to VHS and DVD in North America, as well as Madman in Australia, and 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.
