First part of the Robotech series is a TRIUMPH!!
on 22 March 2006
Wow, I don’t know what I need to type to make people buy this, but as an anime fan I suggest all the Macross Saga Robotech DVD’s as a must. As a young boy I watched a video called Codename Robotech, an utterly baffling Japanese cartoon film about aeroplanes transforming into mech warriors and an invading alien race. Some twelve years later I discover that the film was an amalgamation of a long running TV series in Japan, recently released onto DVD in Europe. Each twenty minute episode is presented on a two disc DVD that lasts for over four hours, and explains completely what has made me confused for the latter of my teen years. The first disc of the anime series explains the story of how a new form of technology, that crash landed into earth, has been harnessed by the human population and advanced their own technology in the process. Unfortunately for the United Earth Council (a banner for the nations that have rallied together to explore the technology), the aliens that misplaced the ship are on a quest to get it back, in order to discover the mysterious power of Robotech. Coupled with great aerial action sequences, and fantastic characters, Robotech is a series that realty invokes emotion on an epic scale. I recommended this series to a friend who is now completely hooked (Captain Farrely), I only wish I could escape into this world for real (mainly for Lisa Hayes)!!!
