And here I thought an audience in Texas thought differently. So much so that certain people disowned it.
I swear, it almost sounds like a whole industry conspiracy.
Conspiracy? Harmony Gold Cover up? No. Reader Misinterpretation? Yes.
The second Macek revolution
Whetted by this taste of what real anime was all about, many fans began to seek out original works -- most of which were unavailable in any legal licensed form.
In 1987, a few years after the end of "Robotech"'s televised run, a young animation curator working for the Landmark Theaters chain, Jerry Beck, had been tasked with creating animation packages for booking into the company's arthouse cinemas. Part of his job was helping to program what would become one of the first annual animation festivals, the Los Angeles Animation Celebration.
A longtime anime enthusiast, Beck sensed that a tipping point had been reached in the number of fans of the medium. He lobbied to include two anime features in the lineup for the first Animation Celebration -- the wondrous "Laputa: Castle in the Sky" by modern master Hayao Miyazaki, and Carl Macek's feature-film sequel to the "Robotech" series, "Robotech: The Movie.
"We put 'Robotech' in the big auditorium, and they sold out instantly," says Beck. "I was in the back, watching it in standing room, and Carl was right there next to me. The reaction was amazing. The audience was loving it. And I whispered to him, 'They're eating it up!' And he shrugged and said, 'That's the way it always is.'"
Beck said nothing of the film's little debut in Texas. He was talking about it's showing at the Los Angeles Animation Celebration. Its not impossible to consider that the movie would be a success in front of diehard animation fans, the only people who would even bother attending the Los Angeles Animation Celebration in its first year.
The illuminati / anti-christ / grays / Harmony Gold 2012 conspiracy is more widespread than previously believed:
Look Jim. I’m a doctor not a loli fan. I can tell that photo is completely fake, there are no ridges on that "K
