Once the secrets of protoculture are revealed, the tough decisions that must be made, on both sides, will ultimately determine that fate of two civilizations.

The Review!
It's here. The final disc of the Masters saga. Wow, that went by fast.

Audio: Nothing to brag about. It's mono. Go go mono!

Video: Typically typical. Better than Macross, but not groundbreaking.

Packaging: The odd coloring of Zor is a little off key, but not that bad. The back features a regular Bioroid.

Menus: Standard. Effective. Booooooring.

Extras: No extras. How many times do I have to say this?

Content: Well, I won't lie. Some parts of the ending Masters saga may not be how you invisioned it would end. So don't expect a great finish.

Dana In Wonderland (B): The 15th Squadron wanders around the Masters ship to spy on all the clones once again.

Crisis Point (B+): Musica aides the 15th Squadron in escaping and escapes from the Masters ship herself with the revitilized Zor.

Day Dreamer (B-): Musica sneaks in as a member of the 15th Squadron under the name Doppler. However, Nova knows something isn't right.

Final Nightmare (B): Musica and Bowie and the rest of the 15th Squadron are lead back to the Invid Flower of Life.

The Invid Connection (A-): The Masters invade earth and now it is up to Zor and the 15th Squadron to stop the Masters.

Catastrophe (B+): The 15th Squadron invade the Masters ship in order to rescue the last few people on the Masters ship. Meanwhile, Dana and Zor attempt to stop the Masters face to face.

Overall, the ending leaves more to be desired and answered. Like who the heck was that girl in Dana's dream and what importance does it have. But it's a fair ending. Could have been better though.
