Super Dimension Fortress More Macross Loving Version 4:
A fan edit of SDF Macross: Do you remember love? Japanese animation movie.
What is it about?
In 1999, an alien space fortress crashes to Earth. Earth is united in rebuilding this fortress for the eventual contact with its owners. In 2009, an alien starship fleet arrives in Earth orbit to claim the fortress now named Macross. The Macross fortress and all on board flee the Earth from the alien fleet. On the way back to Earth on board the space fortress Macross, three young people, a Valkyrie jet fighter pilot Hikaru Ichijyo, a pop star Lynn Minmay and a UN Spacy officer Misa Hayase find their lives inextricably linked to surviving a war amongst two merciless alien armadas.

• Macross: Flashback 2012 Angel’s paints part 1 and 2 incorporated into DYRL extended movie. Part 1 has bits of SDF Macross TV ep 5 to remind viewers that we’re still in the middle of a war and to hide the concert stage differences from the original DYRL movie and FlashBack concert stage. Lynn Minmay’s, the singer’s, costume does change in this scene, but the explanation is that full body holography is a part of the Macross universe. For example, you can see in the recent Macross Frontier ep. 1, how the main singer changes costumes with each song change up due to a holography costume. FlashBack Part 2 is added on the end of SDF Macross: DYRL as a musical epilogue.

Your intention for this fanedit:
SDF Macross DYRL was remastered to dvd in December 2007. So, I had to pick up a copy, since it was a limited edition dvd set. Then a discussion ensued on MacrossWorld.com as to how SDF Macross DYRL was a bit of a disappointment. The picture quality is great, but the video is now so brightened that the film grain and animation cels are visible. The stereo audio has small popping noises every once in a while. To top it off, there is a 6 frame jump back and forth when the main enemy’s fortress is destroyed. I just had to do something about that.
Last year, I had picked up the Macross 20th anniversary DVD and Macross: Flashback 2012 DVD. I then made a longer cut of SDF Macross: DYRL by splicing in the Playstation Macross DYRL? Japanese video footage and added on the Flashback 2012 music video at the end of the SDF Macross DRYL movie. But this time, I am attempting a much more complicated extended SDF Macross DYRL movie fan edit.
