What has happened to the Macross Plus Anime series so far?
In January 2040, thirty years after the devastating War between the Humans and the Zendrandi, the United Nations Administration is conducting experiments on the colonial planet Eden to discover new technology using its transformer fighter jets. Guld Goa Bowman and Isamu Alva Dyson were selected to test fighter jets. Although they had some personal grudges, all the disagreements between them ended up interfering with the trials and wreaking havoc on the program.
When a common acquaintance, Myung Fang Lone, comes there, their hostility escalates. Both pilots knew Myung from childhood, but the three of them had a collision and quickly drove away. This is alluded to throughout the novel and there is evidence of Myung’s troubled relationship with one of the two men, as well as their dislike for each other. When they reunite, they learn that Myung is the producer of Sharon Apple, the galaxy’s hottest entertainment, an AI projection.
Gould and Isamu eventually come face to face during a test phase and a full-blown quarrel ensues as each tries to fool the other. Although they are in the center of a test area, they quickly burst into tears in their battle to consolidate each other’s dominance. Both pilots fight using the test aircraft in a series of breathtaking maneuvers before transforming into Battroid and completing the battle on the ground, having turned off their communication equipment. Isamu is injured as a result of an “accidental” gunfight and is transported to the hospital, where he wakes up to find Myung guarding him. Gould is being questioned by a military tribunal after returning to duty in connection with their battle in the test area, but the project admiral finally makes the decision.
Meanwhile, AI Sharon Apple has developed a malevolent consciousness and, during its appearance at Earth’s Macross City’s Atlantis Dome, takes control of both the SDF-1 Macross Fortress and the X-9 Ghost, hypnotizing both its listeners as well as the Macross Group.
When Isamu and Guld learn that Myung’s life is in danger, they travel to Earth and put their differences aside to overcome the tragedies of their childhood that dissolved them and made them hate each other. Guld battles the X-9 and eventually destroys it by eliminating the gravity safety restrictions on his aircraft and reflecting on the X-9’s speed until he gains a target lock and fires the X-9 while Isamu goes for Sharon. who has taken control of the SDF-1 Macross.
However, by eliminating the limiters, Guld can achieve accelerations beyond human limits (even Zentradi-Human), resulting in his death — even when he crashes the YF-21 into the X-9 by demolishing it.
Isamu is carried away by Sharon’s voice while fighting the SDF-1 Macross and is allowed to collapse to his death. Myung’s voice hits him at the last possible moment, bringing him back to consciousness. Isamu is able to smash the core of the computer by avoiding Macross firing, thus destroying Sharon.
The narrative closes with Myung gesturing to Isamu, who has escaped the destruction of Sharon’s computer as the sun rises over Macross Castle.
