Macross does not equal Robotech... But at least consider giving Do You Remember Love? and Macross Plus a shot. DYRL is a buffet of 80's sci-fi visuals.

Gundam 00 is pretty mediocre but it is an alternate universe show that stands on its own. O8th MS Team is fine but you'd get more out of it having at least seen the original Gundam movies so you understand the conflict.

Origin is a prequel to Mobile Suit Gundam and will mean nothing to someone who's not already well versed in UC Gundam. It's more about politics and character backstories. It's also still in production, next episode is in September and the final episode is sometime next year.

Mobile Suit Gundam is like the Star Wars of Japan so any works in the UC universe tend to assume familiarity with the original.

Try the original Japanese Macross subtitled instead. You might like it better. I do. Also, you don't need to know any of the back story, really, to watch Macross Plus.
