Part of the reason a sequel has never been done with the original characters is because Kawamori Shoji, creator of Macross, does not want to revisit them. The only ones we've seen are Max, Milia, & Excedol in Macross 7, Max and Milia had 7 daughters and the youngest was one of the main characters in that series.
Macross in Japan went in it's own direction. The Robotech series in America went in a completely different one. It combined 3 completely unrelated series and tied them together. I respect it out of nostalgia and watched Shadow Chronicles thinking it would be good, but I was very disappointed.
Macross in Japan is far superior to how Robotech has turned out there. It's been a bunch of failed attempts at resurrection, and lives off of nostalgia.
Truth be told, the people stopping Macross from being brought over here are not the fans, but the licensee grantors and holders. This is not just in the US but in Japan. It's rather unfortunate, we could be getting Macross stuff much cheaper here, but the licensing issues have held up impending deals, like when Toynami in coordination with Tamashii was going to bring over Macross toys here last year.
The deal is still a go but is delayed.
In Robotech, Rick Hunter becomes an admiral on SDF-3 and we see him as a scarred old man in Shadow Chronicles(which was one of the most delayed projects and over hyped). In Macross, Hikaru(Rick Hunter in Robotech), along with Minmay & Misa, disappear in space along with Megaroad 02.
Also in the Japanese Macross, Global, Claudia, and the bridge bunnies did not die in Khyron's last attack, they all survived. Also, Roy was a womanizing fighter ace who was perverted, vulgar, and pretty much a man worthy of a ton of respect. In Robotech you see hints of it, but in the Japanese Macross you definitely know that this man is pretty much the older brother who doesn't always set the best examples but is still a good man.
