I share your sentiments brennan. Annoying isn't it? If I had a genie or something I'd wish for a Hollywood adaptation of Macross DYRL with the original music score and Subtitles for the song. No crappy English renditions. I've been against Robotech...SINCE.

What I would really like to know is if anyone would be willing to license Macross Frontier, because of the current and ongoing legal dispute between Studio Nue / Big West and Harmony Gold. It's not a case that's hit the courts yet, but Harmony Gold's proven track record, especially since they have allegedly trademarked the name Macross in the US, is that they like to block the efforts of other people bringing Macross into the picture. I understand that the stuff is trickling very slowly into the US, but at a very slow pace, because of these legal confusions.

In my honest opinion, Macross Frontier is not going to be picked up until the legal dispute is over. The alternative is to let Harmony Gold butcher the damn show and label it Robotech all over again. Which is not optimal.

Doesnt ADV now have the rights to Macross? the original anyway? Then there is Macross Plus which Manga Ent has. Perhaps I'm wrong or missing something. But I do hope it does get picked up soon after we all get to see it first.

ADV only acquired the license to SDF Macross in about 2006 or so. Animeigo also acquired some rights initially but was blocked by HG. If you think about it, the progress is very very slow - I mean SDF Macross was released in 1982, but only got licensed in the US in 2006? That's HG's demon work going on there.

The only way that Macross will ever be licensed to the US if Tatsunoko and Harmony Gold's Owners and CEO's get shot in the head with 9999 rounds from a Gatling Gunpod and both studios annihilated by the SDF-1's main cannon. (If only in my fantasies)

What can I say? Harmony Gold and Tatsunoko are like George Bush and Marijuana (Stupid, annoying and causes a lot of trouble)

Now now, to the Bush-lovers out there, I'd just like to let you know that I'm an American speaking here. It's not bashing if the bashing comes from within. ^0^
