"Super Dimensional Fortress Macross II: Lovers Again" (超時空要塞マクロスII -LOVERS AGAIN- Chō Jikū Yōsai Makurosu Tsu -RABĀZU AGEIN-?) is a OVA animated by AIC and Onrio, sponsored by Big West and released between May 21 and November 21, 1992. It also saw distribution in the United States in 1992 by US Renditions. It was later compiled for theatrical release as Super Dimensional Fortress Macross II: The Movie. It was a direct sequel to The Super Dimension Fortress Macross: Do You Remember Love? and The Super Dimension Fortress Macross: Flash Back 2012, but did not involve Studio Nue.

Overview

Macross II was greenlit to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Macross series, and was a sequel set eighty years after Super Dimensional Fortress Macross II: The Movie. It was the first series in the franchise to be produced following the Heisei period, following the end of the production of Super Dimension Fortress Macross and the 1987 OVA series The Super Dimension Fortress Macross: Flash Back 2012.

Production

Several staff from the original returned, such as character designer Haruhiko Mikimoto, screenwriter Tomita Yuhiro, sound director Yoshinori Honda and several others. However, Studio Nue did not participate in the production, and was instead led by AIC.

Kazumi Fujita was originally going to be the mechanical designer, but left the project early and was then taken over by Koichi Ohata. Masami Otaki also took over the impressive mecha animation during the fifth episode. Meanwhile, Shigero Sagisu composed music for the series.
