True, one of the defining aspects of Titian Comic’s run with Robotech so far might as well be having no disregard for the source material (and the ACTUAL source material) to try and make an original story. If there isn’t a grand strategy that they are striving for at the end, many, many years from now, I’d say they are just digging a hole for themselves that they may not be able to get out of. Then again, Furman and everyone else working on the first comic book got out easy by just handing off that burden to the Remix staff. If they were working under extreme handicaps to make something resembling Macross, imagine the handicaps this Southern Cross remake is under.
So yes, they were willing to sacrifice Minmay and everyone should be fair game at this point.
Just want to be sure, Remix is supposed to be a continuation of the first comic series and not a self contained story with an extreme tonal shift, right?
