An American adaptation combining the original Macross and two other mech series, Robotech is one of few American animations to be considered a part of the anime world.
Set in the (at the time) future of earth, 1999: an abandoned alien battleship crashes to earth, and earth scientists spend the next ten years reconstructing and studying the ship. They call the technology they develop from it "Robotech." Then the aliens themselves appear: the Zentraedi. A young pilot named Rick Hunter gets caught up in the war for humanity's survival, piloting a ship whose technology he can't even begin to understand.
