Episode: 24 min

My Rating: *** (3:5 stars)

This episode takes place on Christmas Eve so its not really full of Christmas HoHoHo but has many references to the holiday along with the appearance of a traditional (and yummy) Japanese Christmas cake. Also in this episode Minmays settles into a deep depression and seeks out Hikaru while Quamzins group captures a reaction engine.

The Super Dimension Fortress Macross: Falling Snow in the Milky Way Album

Release date: November 21, 1985

A image vocal and instrumental music CD (released in Japan) that is supposed to relate with the first year of the maiden voyage on the Macross. There is also a short story insert called ‘White Christmas’.

The story line is that Misa Hayase and the rest of the Macross bridge crew receive Christmas Eve broadcasts from distant Earth. Lynn Minmay rehearses at the TV station studio for an upcoming Christmas variety special, “Falling Snow in the Milky Way” while guest Hikaru Ichijyo looks on. The three Zentradi Miclone spies experience their first Christmas Eve.
