TV Shows - Robotech

Robotech was one of the first series released in the United States which attempted to include most of the complexity and drama of its original Japanese source material. Produced by Harmony Gold USA, Inc. in association with Tatsunoko Prod. Co., Ltd., Robotech is a story adapted with edited content and revised dialogue from the animation of three different mecha anime series: The Super Dimension Fortress Macross, Super Dimension Cavalry Southern Cross, and Genesis Climber Mospeada. Harmony Gold's cited reasoning for combining these unrelated series was its decision to market Macross for American weekday syndication television, which required a minimum of 65 episodes at the time (thirteen weeks at five episodes per week). Macross and the two other series each had fewer episodes than required, since they originally aired in Japan as weekly series.

1 I was so confused as a kid when it suddenly switched from Macross to Southern Cross. I was so turned off by the new characters and setting that I stopped watching the show. Robotech has aged terribly and I'd advise people to just watch the uncut DVDs of Macross, Southern Cross, and Mospeada that are now available. -- Submitted By: (Travoltron) on May 9, 2012, 12:37 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
2 the first anime series I ever got into was Robotech. Was hard to watch in michigan in the 80's, especially since there was some anti-japan feelings due to the auto industry being there. but it was a great show. some slip ups (the 2nd war is just so... shoe horned in there), but to take 3 series and melt them into a coherent story (more or less) is really impressive -- Submitted By: (VeritechRyan) on October 18, 2010, 11:05 pm - (0 votes) - Login to Vote
