Iconic Scene: Roy and Claudia with the VF-X test models
Quotable Quotes: "Every time I go out there, I'm a little afraid."
Best Character: Roy, for baring his soul to Claudia.
Best Death: The Karyovin pilot that Roy shot down.
Probably the absolute best episode of the Reconstruction Arc... which is kinda weird since it's mostly flashback
This is also the only episode where we see these Unification Wars-era non-transforming fighters, the Unified Forces F-203 Dragon II and the Anti-UN Alliance MiM-31 Karyovin. You can read more about them at the Macross Mecha Manual
