Gekijōban Macross F: Itsuwari no Utahime
The galaxy songstress Sheryl Nome, Ranka Lee, Alto Saotome & friends are traveling space along with the New Macross class ship -Macross Frontier- that contains 10 million citizens in search for new planets in which humankind can develop and progress. The perils of space are vast as itself, the threat from the alien insect-like race Vajra will push all Macross Frontier fleet to an edge, is this the ultimate humankind enemy, or is there something even worse in space. Music & songs will prove one of the most valuable human assets in the space even more powerful than combat VF mechas, as it can reach not only humans but the space and beyond. (Source: ANN)
Half retelling of the original Frontier series, half new story. Conspiracies arise within the Frontier government when Sheryl Nome arrives to the colonial fleet for her concert and is soon marked as a spy for Galaxy while childhood friends, Alto Saotome and Ranka Lee both try to achieve their dreams as the battle between Frontier and the Vajra draws closer.
This movie serves as part one of the Frontier retelling and will conclude with the second, The Wings of Goodbye. (Source: MAL)

Wow...just...wow. Macross Frontier: The False Songstress is probably the best movie adaption of an anime series I have seen to date. The animation is beautiful, and the music is fantastic (that includes series from the TV series and brand-new songs). The series plot was condensed nicely while reworking it just enough to give the story a whole new feel. My only gripe with this movie is the emphasis on Sheryl, which was great except for it meant less screen time for Ranka. That, and the near exclusion of Klan from this movie.
