Macross II: The Movie
Hibiki Kanzaki, an investigative reporter for Scramble News Network (SNN), is caught in the battle when he inadvertently allies himself with Ishtar, an enigmatic and beautiful Zentradi princess who has been isolated from human culture. Enlisting the help of spirited Valkyrie pilot Silvie Gena, Hibiki rushes to save Ishtar from imminent reprogramming by hostile Zentradi. Silvie and Hibiki must subsequently race back to Earth, broadcast the truth about the Zentradi invasion, and convince the powerful military complex U.N. Spacey to reactivate the ancient Macross fortress and defend Earth one more time. Theatrically released on November 28, 2000, Macross II: The Movie is the sequel to Macross: Do You Remember Love?, the first feature based on the revolutionary Japanese animated TV series, Superdimensional Fortress Macross (edited and released in the U.S. as Robotech), and features script work by the prolific Sukehiro Tomita, who was also involved in story development for the first feature.
