Considering this was a Macross title, I decided to try this out. Unfortunately, I'm not liking what I'm seeing of Macross 7. Basara, as a lead character, is quite difficult to connect with for his impulsive and selfish behavior. Not to mention these past eight episodes are quite repetitious with their developments where Fire Bomber is performing, Basara and Mylene get into some sort of argument, enemy attack comes up during a concert and for whatever reason Basara goes out into battle to perform his music in a Valkyrie. While the last idea was something fun for me to see at first, it isn't really leading the plot anywhere and makes this Macross series feel somewhat juvenile compared to other Macross titles I've seen in the franchise thus far. It is quite a shame as I was finding the J-Rock musical choices to be quite catchy and I was interested in seeing the developments of Mylene's character as she is the daughter of the original Macross' Max and Milia. Yet with this series too fixated with Basara and sticking with its repetitious developments, I can't stick around with Macross 7 any longer. Dropping this without a final review.

Through 1 episode...This is going to be another show that's going to be hard to watch methinks. A rock band in concert and battles in space. Basara annoys the heck out of me. More later (maybe)...
