Editorial Reviews

Standard Definition Video. These are the original image transfers from the 1984 movie release. Do You Remember Love? is a reinterpretation of The Super Dimension Fortress Macross in a feature film format. Almost all of the characters featured in the TV series appear in the film. Most of the seiyū from the TV series reprised their roles for the film. The love triangle and the various relationships are intact but are realized differently.

Customer Reviews

Macross Plus is ok, but Macross is what started it all.

The sound tracks available are Dolby Digital English 5.1 and Dolby Digital Japanese 5.1.

Its pretty funny, but if you want something serious, you'll need it subtitled.

If you're a fan of Macross, you have no excuse not to get this movie immediately. While it is in essence only a condensed version of the original animated series, it's still well worth your time. The animation is simply excellent, and every moment is a joy to look upon, from Minmay and Hikaru's time alone in the Macross to the final battle at the end. The Lynn Minmay songs are wonderful as well. Please, please, PLEASE do yourself a favor and find a subtitled version of this. The English-dubbed version is horrible, in truth the worst anime dub I've had the misfortune to stumble across. All the characters speak with a British accent and are for the most part emotionless, while the dialogue doesn't even make sense at times. There's nothing like hearing "Beat...him...and....restore...culture." delivered in a dead voice to kill the drama in a scene.

The first time I saw 'SDF Macross', I was amazed by the animation. For many years, the artwork was the standard for other anime features to be compared to. It featured a story similar to what was witnessed in the original 'Macross' TV series, which was adapted in the U.S. into the first generation of the Robotech saga. It featured the SDF-1, redesigned Zentraedi (Exedore with a pulsating head, for example), and the classic love triangle between Hikaru ('Rick Hunter'), Misa Hayase ('Lisa Hayes'), and Lynn Minmei. But it also had some new twists and surprises. The movie became so popular, it is now considered the canonical ("true") beginning of the Macross mythos, rather than the series. Continued in "Macross II" and "Macross Plus".
The only problem to me, as most would agree, is the English dub. It brings things down quite a few notches. It's a lot like the voice-over soundtrack you'd hear in a Godzilla flick. Maybe I'd expect that from 'Rodan', but not 'Macross'. However...
'Superdimensional Fortress Macross' is available in English-subtitled VHS format, known as 'Macross '84: Do You Remember Love?'. I've seen this rendition, and consider it to be exceedingly superior to the English dub edition. Unfortunately, it has seen a limited release, mainly in the UK, and is extremely hard to find stateside. If you're able to track it down, this is the version I recommend you get.
Good Luck...

The best thing about this movie is the animation. For a 1980's anime, the animation in this movie is spectacular. It even rivals some of today's anime movies. The only real bad part of the movie is the dubbing, which was done in Hong Kong by actors who probably knew nothing of the Macross series which explains how dead the voice actors seem. I've read that people are complaining that this movie did not stay true to the Macross/Robotech story. First of all Robotech was the amalgamation of 3 unrelated anime TV series. The Macross saga which was part of Robotech was altered and edited to fit the Robotech story. The original Macross series is different. This movie's original title was "Do You Remember Love?". It is a fictional movie. It was designed to be a movie within a series. To explain it better, it was designed to be a movie made by the people of Macross about the Macross story or Space War one. For example, Hikaru Ichijo/Rick Hunter would have gone to see this movie. That's why it doesn't follow the events exactly in the Macross series. Also the screenplay suffers heavily because of the terrible translation and horrible voice acting. If you're a Macross fan, I definitely recommend this movie. To many Macross fans it is THE Macross movie. If you're not a Macross fan, I would still recommend this movie, b/c of its excellent animation and good story, but remember that it was made in the 80's and that the dubbing confuses the storyline.

**UPDATE on Availability for this classic movie - July 2011**

This great classic may not be available here anymore but you can still find copies at a very reasonable cost at the Lake Anime dot com web site.

This version of the movie, "The Super Dimension Fortress Macross Do You Remember Love, Perfect Edition", released by Crescent Media, is really GREAT!! More details on the movie in a moment. The big question was why was it so d@%$# hard to find this movie with a Macross search???

I'd been searching for the Macross Movie: Do You Remember Love for a very long time but only found it by accident here when looking at other movie recommendations located on the description pages for other versions of the Macross saga. This movie version should have turned up when doing a regular Macross search but it didn't. Even searching by the complete title would not bring up this particular listing. The only way to bring up this listing was to enter Macross The Movie. But fortunately it looks like Amazon has fixed this issue or maybe it was because I added some new tags to the movie description. It now shows up if you do a search on just Macross.

Now as for what you get for the money, the movie set consists of the movie DVD and an audio CD that contains the soundtrack for the movie. The movie is in color, NTSC with Dolby Digital 5.1 sound tracks for both Japanese and English. Run time for the movie is 115 minutes.

Getting to the movie itself, bear in mind that the movie version is considerably different from the Macross series itself as it is a film adaptation that is a re-imaging of the original series and contains new animation.
