I'm all for another Top Gun-esque Tom Cruise vehicle, so bring it on.
I've never seen the anime, but would have to agree with Mirroball Man that the youtube clip and wiki entry hardly inspire much interest in me in the original IP itself. And this comes from someone who likes some stuff like Macross. So I don't mind how it's adapted.
Just make it fun, with lots of cool jet action and an appropriately awesome soundtrack please!
