Figured there would most likely be other Macross fans on here.

Needless to say, i am very excited about this. It occurs 8 years after Frontier.

To my knowledge they never released Macross Frontier over in the US (or anywhere else). Is that still true? If so are they wanting to release Delta at all?

I mean you cant even look at any of the videos for Macross Frontier on Youtube without them getting taken down really quick.

The reason they have never released Macross 7, Zero, or Frontier in the USA is a rights dispute with Harmony Gold. And, the owners of Macross apparently don't think it is worth the time and money to take HG to court in the USA over it. I really wish they would change their minds. Either that, or HG be willing to cut a deal that does not try to force the other Macross properties into the Robotech universe.

I doubt Harmony Gold will be willing to cooperate too much. They're getting ready to revive Robotech here in the West with new content as well as the live action movie being a go. They are supposed to have the script done I believe by end of January. I think it's a shame that high profile series like this go through so much turmoil. Kind of like how Bandai fd themselves here is the west with Gundam and we have to import everything.

The releases even include Turn A Gundam, which had no previous release in the US.

Harmony Gold is EVIL incarnate of the anime world!

There are MANY Macross fans who are forced by HG to go to the darkside to get our Macross fix

I am PUMPED for this new series and will watch it WHEREVER I have to!

Thanks for the link.

Never knew about that rights dispute either. That makes perfect sense now. Its sad.

Robotech got me started into anime long ago. After I found out how HG butchered Macross once I got older, I wasn't able to forgive them.

Big Macross fan still though.

I agree. Understand CGI saves time and makes their jobs easier, but I feel the art feels more artificial. If that makes sense. Heh. Our old school anime has more heart, damn it! That is also a wonderful Misa, Yamstarch. Good eye.

After reading the the ANN article, I'm kind of worried we might be seeing another Macross 7. Don't get me wrong, I love the music in Macross 7. But, the story was really bad in my opinion. At least Frontier had a semi-plausible reason why the Vajra were affected by the music.

I'm another person who can't forgive HG for what they did to 3 excellent series and an awesome movie (Megazone 23). I found the Southern Cross section of Robotech to be boring. But, after seeing the original series (The Super Dimension Cavalry Southern Cross), it made a lot more sense.
