MACROSS SEVEN P*L*U*S
ICONIC SCENE: “Don’t take your eyes off that monitor!”
RELEASE DATE: July 25, 1995
Well, it’s time for our monthly short film, this one about the bridge crew, and coming appended to Vol. 6 of the series (Eps. 21-24) on VHS and LD. This one was actually storyboarded by Kawamori (this and episode 27 are his only credits in the series beyond the vague titles “supervisor” and “original story”). It’s cute, although I wonder if there’s some wish-fulfillment here on Kawamori’s part for the many times he fell asleep in the studio. It probably has the most fluid animation of any of the Macross 7 P*L*U*S shorts, but other than that, yeah… not much to say about it. As I said, it’s cute, but not terribly deep.
