Macross 7 (マクロス７) is an anime television series. It is a spin-off of the show The Super Dimension Fortress Macross that takes place many years after the events of the first series following a cast of mostly new characters. The show ran from October 16, 1994 to September 24, 1995 at 11:00 AM, and 49 episodes were aired. Macross 7 is best known for its music, and since the show began airing over a dozen albums have been released by the fictional band Fire Bomber that stars in the show. Macross 7 exists in the official Studio Nue chronology, with story concept by Shoji Kawamori and mechanical designs by Mr. Kawamori and Kazutaka Miyatake.
The story follows the band Fire Bomber, led by Basara Nekki. They inhabit the 37th colonial fleet's main spacecraft, Macross 7 (which the series gains its title from). The ship comes under attack from enemies call Protodeviln from the planet Varauta. Conventional warfare proves costly and ineffective against them, but - borrowing from the original series' roots - the power of Basara's music helps turn the tide of the conflict. (Wikipedia)
