I bought the first Robotech DVD with some trepidation. I knew it was a classic series loved by the fans but I wasn't sure if it would live up to my expectations, considering its age. I was however pleasantly surprised. Yes, the animation is far from cutting edge when compared with todays fare, but the combat scenes featuring the SDF 1, veritech fighters and the vast Zentradi space craft do still manage to impress and I admit feeling a certain amount of awe when watching these. Over all the series is perhaps a little dated (and rather Americanised), but don't let that put you off. The story line is excellent and shows surprising sophistication at times. This isn't simply about big mecha robots knocking lumps out of each other. It's also an intriguing story that keeps your attention and cleverly ensures you want to see that next episode. The feel of the original series is also kept by having the full intro before each episode, plus a brief synopsis of the previous episode, and also the break for commercials half way through (though no commercials thank god!). This is fun but after the first few episodes you may find your finger hitting the skip button on your remote when the intro starts yet again. As far as volume 2 in this series of DVDs is concerned, it's on a par with the first volume. Episode 14 however is a little disappointing as it is essentially just a recap of what happened in the first 13 episodes. Perhaps more essential for a TV audience but I did tend to fast forward through most of that episode. With all these Robotech DVDs what you see is what you get. Just the series and no extras. These may have been a nice addition to such an important anime series, but to be honest I doubt there's room on the 2 discs for any extras considering the run times.

After the last volume you were left with Rick and friends escaping from Zentraedi captivity and the SDF being infiltrated by the three pilots from before.

At long last the SDF goes home after travelling across the solar system, this results in a recap episode while Gloval briefs command. Minmei and Rick go to Yokohama to visit her parents and pick up her cousin Kyle who agrees to look over her. Then Khyron attacks the SDF and Rick Hunter gets injured in the crossfire, this is followed by a weird dream sequence, a love triangle then develops between Rick, Minmei and Lisa Hayes as Rick sorts out his feelings.

Alas as most shows go, someone dies. Rick Hunters would be brother Roy Folker dies and Max draws the attention of Miriya, a female Zentraedi pilot who wants to fight the SDF's ace. Toronto (Canada) agrees to take the refugees aboard the SDF but when a newly developed barrier system is being tested the SDF is attacked and the barrier overloads destroying the attackers, a city and one of Rick's wingmen Ben.

After this the SDF is banished from the earth, the SFD is attacked again and the defences are breached as enemy warriors make their way inside and lay waste to the City. This results in some Zentraedi defecting to the SDF and Miriya infiltrating the SDF to find the human ace Max, she is found by Max at an arcade store where he challenges, defeats her and asks her out on a date.

This volume really delivers, it has lots of action, drama, some comedy and romance between the characters. It's sad that Roy had to die, he was so likeable.
