In Macross, Rick Hunter joins an intergalactic battle and pilots a Veritech- A fighter plane which can transform into a mecha. From a rookie pilot, he later becomes commander of the Super Dimensional Fortress 3. It's a classic anime saga which contains lots of robot vs giant alien battles and sappy triangle romances which i shamelessly like. My ancient sketchbooks contain many tries at drawing Rick Hunter's spiked hair and face. Most of them out of proportioned. I don't think i've got it quite right yet. But heck close enuf.
