Come and re-experience the cheesy glee of Minmei’s music, Rick’s failtastic lovelife, Max and Miriya’s crazy courtship, Admiral Gloval’s accent, Dana Sterling’s hovertank, and a whole mess of dirtbikes.

    I started reading these last night and finished up today. Absolutely brilliant!!

    (As a Fun Police Macross Purist (living in Los Angeles, with a large Japanese population, the truth wasn’t hard to suss out, and by the time Robotech had finished airing, I had the Macross Movie on VHS), I feel compelled to point out that most of the stuff you like about Robotech is present in the original Japanese versions, while most of the stuff you dislike was added to it for Robotech (except the shower scenes), but really, I don’t want to belabor the point… Your Rewatch posts were excellent.)

    Wooooh Robotech finale! I don’t know what got me searching the series earlier this year, but I’m glad it led me here, reading your rewatch was a lot of fun.

    Since I first experienced the Invid part of Robotech in novel form, I went from Symphony of Light to The End of the Circle, which brought back the Hunters (and Sterlings) and avoided that unfinished feeling.
