The protagonist of SDF Macross. Hikaru begins the series as a young stunt pilot who finds himself dragged into Earth's first interstellar war. He rises through the ranks eventually commanding his mentor's Fighter Squadron and piloting his prized Valkyrie fighter.
Macross: Do You Remember Love - Hikaru is portrayed in the same manner as his tv series counter part. He starts a relationship with and (already) famous Lynn Minmei, until he is isolated on Earth with Misa Hayase who he falls in love with. After Major Focker dies on the Zentradi battleship he is promoted to Skull Leader and given a brand new VF-1S Valkyrie (painted in his personal color scheme). Hikaru is instrumental in convincing Minmei to sing the ancient love song that turns the tide of battle in Earth's favor and delivers the kill shot to Badolza ending the war.
