"I would run home from school and plop myself down in front of the TV, eagerly awaiting my daily dose of Robotech. This was the first animated series to deal with drama of a serious adult nature, of course at the time all I really cared about were the cool aircraft that could change from planes to robots. I didn't know what it was, and I still don't, but there was something about Robotech (there still is) that is so captivating that one cannot help but become thoroughly engrossed in its storyline. The episodes that make up this DVD are the most critical to the story and are a must for any serious collector, or for people like me who just want to recapture that small part of their youth when something as small as a cartoon was the most important thing in their life."
Top-notch Anime - Volume IV :-)

"The fourth DVD volume of the Robotech series contains six excellent episodes featuring the first attempts at peace between the Earth Defense Forces (anchored by the SDF-1) and the alien Zentradi, including the eyecatches to and from commercial breaks. In the late 1980s, F.H.E. had released a videotape of these same episodes edited together to form one "movie;" while that was okay, this presentation by ADV Films is far superior, allowing easy access to any particular episode on may wish to view. This is one of my favorite anime series. However, I can only rate this DVD as a "3" for two reasons. First, concerning the DVD construction, the main menu begins with a brief clip from the series without any actual menu selections immediately available, which can cause confusion for some users; also, this is the exact same clip used for the main menu in the third DVD of the Robotech series - at least this should have been changed during DVD construction. Secondly, and by far the most significant flaw, this DVD is NOT compatible with the PlayStation2, whereas the first DVD in the series worked perfectly with the PS2."

"As the citizens of the SDF-1 are ordered to stay on the ship and take off once again for space, the crew goes through some remarkable changes. Here are the following episodes.Bursting Point: Just when the citizens get a break, Kyron attacks in full force on the SDF-1 Omni-Barrier. And another crew member will lose his life.Paradise Lost: The SDF-1 is ordered off Earth, but Minmei makes a cheer-up speech to the Macross citizens.A New Dawn: When Minmei's new movie premieres, the SDF-1 goes into an unprepared transformation. This leaves Rick and Lisa trapped in a part of the ship.Battle Hymn: While the SDF-1's Dataless attack is foiled by Kyron's troop, some of them defect when they make it in there. And Minmei continues to sing while the battle rages on inside.Reckless: After seeing Minmei and Lynn Kyle kiss, Rick continues to fight, angry. Meanwhile, Kyron's soldiers begin to dessert him in the battle on the ship.Showdown: While Lisa leaves the SDF-1 for peace negotiations on Earth with the Zentradi defectors, Max challenges Miryal and then asks her on a date.The battles on this disc are pretty great, but the majority of the episodes here are character development episodes. There is one thing worth nothing. When Max and Rick go into the arcade, theres a video game of Lupin 3. Anyway, another great disc that gives you a crave for Volume 5. It's only about a month until the next set comes out, but I can't wait that long!"
