Macross Plus: Movie Edition
Nominee for Outstanding Achievement in an Animated Home Video Production - 1995 / 1996 ASIFA - Hollywood Annie Awards 2040: On the colonial planet of New Eden, the Ministry of Defense is developing a new transforming stealth aircraft - an advanced defense vehicle to counter alien attacks. Isamu Dyson, a maverick jet fighter fresh from the battlefield, is assigned as a test pilot for Project Super Nova. At the time of its release Macross Plus was the most expensive animated project ever created which can be seen in every painstakingly rendered frame which skillfully blends traditional 2-dimensional cel animation with then unseen 3D computer generated imagery. Based on the original Macross, it was edited for U.S. television and released as the popular series Robotech. Director Shoji Kawamori provided the story concept and directed the film with Shinichiru Watanabe ('Cowboy Bebop'). Several additional scenes were added including a new ending featuring extended footage of the concert given by the film's virtual pop star, Sharon Apple.
