Series:
6. II
5. DYRL
4. 7
3. Zero
2. SDF
1. Plus

Musicians:
5. Ranka Lee
4. Fire Bomber
3. Sheryl Nome
2. Sharon Apple
1. Lynn Minmay

I didn't add some of the films, ova, manga, video games and kept it simple. If I added Flashback 2012, I would slip it between SDF and Zero. I didn't finish Zero or 7 but I still ranked them.



Side note...

Last night, I decide to rewatch Macross Plus, one of the best 90s anime, arguably one of the best Macross series. Before I talk about that, I got my hands on the Japanese bluray version. Keep in mind, I haven't watched Plus in over 20 years, on VHS. As I was watching 'Part 4' from the bluray version, I was completely confused.

It's no secret, Bryan Cranston voiced Isamu Dyson but replace by David Hayter (Snake, Lupin, screenplayed X-Men, Watchmen) in part 4. Did I miss something?

Minmay can get flushed out of an airlock for all I care.

Everyone else is cool though. Especially Rick and Lisa.

But yes. Macross plus is awesome.

As for how well I enjoyed them

1. SDF
2. 7
3. Plus
4. Zero
5. II
6. Frontier

I really hate the melodramatic main characters. Osamu and Basara were low on that count, and Hikaru was in cheesy 80's mode so it was enjoyable regardless. Shin and Alto were just angsty, and that is a no-no for me.
Also I really loved Max, and the only places you get to see Max are SDF and 7.

Singers :
I only remember Fire Bomber, Ranka, and Sheryl Nome.
from them it would be
1. Fire Bomber
2. Ranka = Sheryl Nome , I like their singing voices equally.

"Listen to my sooong!"

No, Basara. @#$% you.

....

That being said, I enjoy original Macross and Macross II. ... Yes, folks, I am the one and only Macross II fan.

Macross 7 has its points, but it goes on for way too long.

"Rick"? "Lisa"? "Min-MAY"??

Yep, you can smell 'em a mile off--It's always the ones who grew up with the US Robotech who still labor under the delusion that Minmei was a whiny selfish pest.

This is why we need education and understanding, and the ADV dub back on disk again.

I couldn't watch five minutes of Seven or Basara, without the urge to make U2 Bono jokes taking over.

Minmei was a whiny, selfish pest in both. Just sounded whinier in Robotech.
