Review: Macross 7 Dynamite

less than 1 minute read

When Macross 7 tries to give Moby Dick a happy ending, the result is the exact opposite of dynamite. This four part OVA is a thin two hour tale revolving around Basara singing to space whales and poachers. Inexplicably, they also throw in a brief lesbian date rape attempt for Mylene. Why? I have no clue; it comes out of left field and does nothing to advance the plot of the story or build out her character. At one point, Ray pulls out cardboard cutouts of Basara and Mylene on stage; those cutouts had more depth to them than their flesh and blood counterparts. I think that sums up my opinion quite nicely.
