Chojiku Yosai Macross: Ai Oboeteimasuka (1984)
Horror Movies & Sci-Fi Movies Database
In the next century, a reconfiguring ship (think "Transformer" with a pilot) called Macross carries fifty thousand refugees within its hold as it returns to Earth pursued by giant humanoid warriors. A young pilot in the military named Hikaru rescues his idol, the beautiful singer Lynn Minmay, from the giants as they break through the ship's hull during a concert-during which the giants are shocked to see females on a male vessel-and they are trapped for days in an aft hold of the ship. After their rescue, Hikaru and Minmay continue on good terms until a joyride in a fighter trainer gets Hikaru, his squadron leader, Minmay's brother, Minmay herself and the tough female operations controller captured by the giants, who grill them on how males and females can survive together without fighting. The giants' female counterparts arrive to wreak havoc on their male foes, and in the ensuing confusion Minmay and her brother are detained while the others make an escape that costs squadron leader Roy Focker his life and strands Hikaru and commander Misa Hayase on a now-totally-lifeless Earth, which leads to revelations on all three sides of the conflict regarding their past and future as well as the origins of mankind and the power of love and song, while Hikaru tangles with his feelings for both Misa and Minmay and all builds toward a final battle between the Macross and both giant fleets...

- [last lines] Misa Hayase: Just an old love song...
[Hikaru tries to convince Minmay to sing to defeat the Zentradi] Lynn Minmay: You can't win a war by singing! Stay with me, if we're going to die anyway... Hikaru Ichijo: It's not just for us. It's for everyone onboard Macross. Lynn Minmay: That has nothing to do with us! Why aren't we the only two in the universe? I wish everyone would die except you and me! [Hikaru slaps Minmay, as a panoply of war's destruction plays across the screen.] Hikaru Ichijo: Sempai died. Kakizaki died. So many have died. They had plans for peace. You can still sing, can't you? [An explosion blows off an armored shutter behind Hikaru and Minmay. They watch, horrified, as a Valkyrie fighter is blown to pieces in front of them.] Lynn Minmay: I'm sorry, Hikaru. I don't know what came over me. I chose to become a singer. If I don't now, my mother and father's spirits will never forgive me. Me, I'll sing with all my heart!
- During the scene where Minmay and Kaifunn are in the emergency shelter at the beginning of the film, the autograph hound is a caricature of Shoji Kawamori, the film's director.
When Minmay and Hikaru are running through Macross City, one of the billboards is actually a bumper sticker for the San Francisco radio station KMEL. While Kawamori was in SF, he became a avid listener of the station.
Look closely at the missiles Hikaru fires en route to Bodolzaa. One is a Budweiser can, another is a sake flask.
Kawamori and Matsuzaki had originally designed an elaborate ending sequence for the film, which would have featured Minmay singing "Angel's Paints" while we caught glimpses of the other characters watching the concert. This sequence (and a storyboarded sequence featuring Max and Millia's wedding) were scrapped due to the budget running out. The concert sequence was later animated in Chôjikû yôsai makurosu furasshubakku 2012 (1987) (V) and the concert sequence was finally appended to the end of Macross DYRL to complete the film as the creators had intended.
The soda that Hikaru and Minmay drink in the "Zero-G Love" song sequence is Coca-Cola.
