  1. I watched the first 40 or so episodes of Robotech on netflix over the last few weeks. I thought I saw this back in the day but I must not have. I never watched the original Macross subtitled either so I don't know how much Robotech is butchered in comparison. Honestly tho.. this was a solid series after you get past the first 5 or so episodes. It looks dated to all hell, but the plot has some great sci-fi. The genocide that happens in it in numerous episodes shocked me a bit. If I'd have watched this when I was a kid all other cartoons would have been nothing in comparison. O_O Unfortunately after the main characters leave the show around episode 38 (I think?) the show turned to garbage. I looked at wikipedia and its 3 different series dubbed and jammed into one 85 episode series called Robotech. Apparently the first part is the original Macross anime and that was amazing. But 4 eps into this second series and I can't stand watching it anymore. ehh.

      They pretty much butchered Macross, Southern Cross, and Mospeada to make this frankenstein of a show coherent enough to follow a plot line (I know most of the story points for each show were left in tact but other then that they had to butcher them to make it coherent enough to follow through three different anime). I can't stomach Robotech, it's an atrocity that should of never been made but thanks to licensing agreements conflicting with each other we got this horror show. Plus I'm a pretty hardcore Macross fan (I've seen every series with the exception of Delta which I have downloaded just haven't had time to watch it yet) so the whole concept of the show rubs me the wrong way. You might have seen it in the past. I know it aired on Toonami's Midnight block with Uncut Gundam Wing back during it's original run so you might of caught some of the later episodes that take place during the Southern Cross or Mospeada arcs (or Robotech Wars 2 and 3 if I remember their nomenclature right).

      Thankfully the original version of Macross got a faithful release over here before ADV imploded (I think Southern Cross did as well but I can't remember for sure) but I don't know if there are any copies in circulation still (but this is definitely the version to watch).

      The first 38 or so eps that are the butched macross series was so great because of the amount of times I'd laugh at the personal drama between Rick, Minmay and Lisa. Rick was such a dick. XD The best and most savage breakup line I've ever heard was in this anime. It went something like.. "This world is so big, its amazing how much time we've wasted on each other." ROTFLMAO! The look of shock on her face.. Rick is such an asshole. XD
