We're tied in taste quality so saying either of us have the best taste is technically correct.

As the one who recommended various other Macross shows, I should probably emphasize how much this one is to be avoided. I'm still not entirely sure how it's the most popular one these days.

Anyone knows that to have the best taste in animu forever all you have to do is watch Nisemonogatari episode 8 and nothing else.

Except TTGL borders on good and bland.

It had a lot of great points but it fell flat in a lot of areas too.

Certainly not in Yokos chest.

BUT, it made me get attached to kamina in about 4 hours.
I don't get attached to real people that fast.
Not to mention the couple hours of HEART WRENCHING DESPAIR the ending caused me.
The characters were likable, the plot made about as much sense as anything else they did.
I really wish that the bit with Boota near the end would have been explored further.
Attenborough needs more screentime.

TL;DR: The important part is I had fun watching it.

I was actually ok with you recommending TTGL, it's a good anime, but Kamina is a pretty mediocre character.

Spoiler:
Agreeing with Mentle. Kamina...didn't quite capture my attention as much. He was fun to watch and inspirational, but I can say that I didn't feel much during episode 8. Though I loved his combining with Simon in that episode, thats about it really. Though he does give Simon, Yoko and Kittan their character development. Simon, well he finally surpasses Kamina and avenges him perfectly, even becoming even more manlier than Kamina ever could. Like, Simon finally put on Kamina's shoes and kept going, then outgrew said shoes and became the man he is now. Yoko, well she was heartbroken. After he left she became a lot more reserved to people, and wasn't generally in a good mood. Especially towards Nia, as if Yoko didn't want to be close to anyone anymore because she didn't want to get hurt. But once Simon got out of his depression and realized he doesn't need Kamina anymore to keep going, Yoko did the same, and she decided to continue his wish of getting people to live on the surface peacefully. And though not many people realize this, Kittan grew as a character as well. He was constantly living under Kamina's shadow. When he died, Kittan acted as temporary leader, trying to fill Kamina's shoes, but it didn't feel right for Kittan. Though once timeskip happened, Kittan became a better leader than Kamina, taking care of things while Simon was busy. Knowing what happened to Kamina, Kittan realized that death is inevitable, and to keep on fighting even though it may be his last fight. He even shouts at Gimmy about this, telling him that death doesn't scare them and its better to die fighting. Kittan knows he can't be Kamina, but he can be himself, and his own motivation is his sister's family, and all of his friends.

HIDDEN BECAUSE SPOILERS

Holy shit this was a lot longer than I expected it to be.

So... basically,

Kamina's death
allowed the others to develop as characters?

Even if a series is 25 years old or more, going out of your way to reveal thing like that just because everyone should know is kind of rude.

I actually wouldn't go as far as to say Kamina was mediocre. In fact I really liked him.

People do have a tendency to overrate him yes, but what I mainly like about him is that he's a really big change of pace when it came to characters at the time I was watching TTGL myself. He catches your attention on the get go with all the focus that's put on him and with it he uses his screentime to (in his own dumb way) try to inspire others to be adventurous and unafraid.

Was he smart? No. But
Spoiler:
that's exactly why he didn't last
and that's also why I found he managed to bring some interesting chemistry, and had a good amount of overbearing weaknesses which were balanced out by others (which confuses me when people say he's a mary sue when he's... obviously not.)

He played it to us straight and it was fun to watch something stupid succeed for as long as he did. He's not a deep character, he's definitely not a great character, but I don't think I could call him mediocre.

FOR SOME I CAN ONLY FIND SUBS EN ESPANOL.

Anyway this anime is quite okay. The protagonist is refreshing in a since that he's a total Gary Stu, so if you're ever tired of seeing pansy-ass protagonists there's that. It's also about ten episodes long, so it isn't a giant waste of time. I think they've taken a lot of liberties from the light novel though; I heard the protagonist is seemingly more of an asshole than is depicted in the anime.
