Update: added Zenu's isolated images of the YF-19 which totally deserve a closer look!
The first word in my dreams I could clearly see Planet Eden high beyond the skies.
Beautiful and sad is this story I'll tell of the winged travelers eager.

So I really liked Macross Plus (wiki article). Watching it was an experience, and it really hooked me on anime for the years that followed. It's a four episode OVA of a self-contained drama in the Macross universe. But there is so, so very much contained in these couple hours of program. It's a gem of animation, music and I daresay storytelling for the compelling tale they spin in so short a time.
I asked Zenu to reproduce a particular scene from Macross Plus that is etched into my memory. [name]Audelicious[/name]'s Aubrey is playing as Myung Lone, and my Tierra is filling the role of Isamu Dyson piloting the YF-19 prototype.
This scene is towards the end, so I won't spoil it too much, but it plays out a little bit like Zenu's marvelous image here. Aubrey, trapped in a facility, is discovered through a window by Tierra as she makes a sweep of the place with her fighter hovering in GERWALK mode. (i'm a big nerd so yes I had to bust out the term X3) . The scene in the anime with the YF-19 hovering outside with a screen inside showing a closeup of Isamu to Myung.. can't explain it without spoiling, but I love that wonderful little moment.
I thank Zenu for rendering this self-indulgent, awesome piece of nostalgia for me!
