I know that it's only been two years since the original Macross series was announced to be streaming on Hulu, but today is special. Since we are celebrating the 30th anniversary of the franchise throughout this week, I have decided to remind you all that Hulu is streaming three different Macross titles.
While it's not the entire franchise, Hulu is streaming the original Super Dimension Fortress Macross series, along with the Macross Plus OVA and the alternate movie known as Macross II. And as Tim said in his post two years ago, "If you fail to watch it, then you are missing out on one of the best anime series of all time." However, this statement only applies to the original Macross, which makes the other two shows optional. To those who can't access Hulu, you will all be forgiven.
To those that can watch any of Hulu's Macross offerings, be sure to check out the original series. And trust me on this one, you won't regret your decision in jumping in. Even though the series is using the ADV dub, I did enjoy their voice acting in the original series. If there was one downside, it would be that Mari Ijima's English voice for Minmei felt a bit out of place with the other voices. Then again, you still have to give her props, since not many Japanese voice actors/actresses get the chance to dub their own character.
