WRL: Macross (33-36)

Ah, the final post in ghostlightning’s rewatch. I went through the series so fast for the first time, I haven’t had much time to consider points like these:

All three. Instead of saving the day and being heroes, they were people who found reasons to live, or had to find reasons for themselves to live.

Anti-heroic. I find even the concept of ‘saving the day’ is not that simple in Macross; we have to also ask, “for who was the day saved?” But it’s quite clear that after the battle dust settles, these characters are kosher and return to the turmoil of their own lives. It’s everyday, it’s returning from the job, and acknowledging that we all have issues outside the scope of what we do well, perhaps.
