11 June 2007: Macross 7

So, I'm watching Macross 7, and I've decided that Gundam SEED Destiny's Anime Jesus Kira Yamato and his holier-than-thou pacifism would be a lot less offensive if he was more like Nekki Basara.

And I don't even like Basara, although I do like him better than Renton from Eureka 7. Basara is obsessively single-minded—to an extent that it makes Macross 7 rather bizarre, even for a kid's show. In a way, Basara kind of reminds me of the inept substitute manager from Full Moon wo Sagashite. It's still better than making him a whiny, dumb kid like Renton. Okay, two out of three.

Keeping Basara in check (read: constantly bitching him out) is Max and Milia's seventh (and youngest) child, Mylene.

Mylene is a 14-year-old aspiring rock star. To that end, Macross 7 again reminds me of Full Moon wo Sagashite, although Mylene is no Mitsuki, and Fire Bomber is not as good as Fullmoon. There aren't many different songs through the first 20 episodes of Macross 7, so the music is rather repetitive. There aren't many songs in the first 20 episodes of Full Moon wo Sagashite, either, but the music in Full Moon is a lot better, albeit less conducive to ROCKING OUT.
