The Super Dimension Fortress Macross: Do You Remember Love? (超時空要塞マクロス 愛・おぼえていますか) is an animated movie based around the first Macross television series that was released in Japanese movie theaters on July 7, 1984.
The movie is a film adaptation of Choujikuu Yousai Macross, with new improved animation and designs. The storyline of the movie does not fit directly into the Macross chronology, and was originally an alternate-universe retelling of the story, but was later established as part of the Macross universe.
Within the Macross continuity it is also a popular movie (ie. a movie within a television series), a fact shown in Macross 7. However, other Macross sequels like Macross Frontier have used visual elements from both the first T.V. series and this animated film.
In real life the premier of this anime film adaptation in Japan during the mid 80s was a great success. It received a huge marketing campaign that generated very long lines of fans; many of them camped outside cinemas the night prior to the movie's first release (something unheard of at the time for an anime related work). These events were dramatized in the anime comedy Otaku no Video from 1991.
