I was one of the original Robotech fans of the 80's. decades later, after buying the Robotehc 6 dvd set, I was so diappointed to now notice how choppy the storytelling was and a certain things just did NOT make any sense.
Enter MACROSS! now that North America has access to the remastered original series of Macross, I decided to snatch up the 3 box sets and DAMN! What a difference it makes!
Stories are complete! Dialogue is actually a lot more intellectual. Plot makes more sense! Robotech cut out a lot of smaller scenes that actually helped the viewer better understand various situations. Some of the cut scenes are pretty funny as well. comabt scnes are much more intense and enjoyable. Robotech cut out a lot of the violence and gave us a little too many still-images during battle scnenes, for my tastes.
I urge all Robotech fans out there to pick up these dvd's and see the REAL THING from beginning to end! You wont regret it!
It's a totally new experience!
