Macross Mech Graffiti

Recommended Posts

I have found this very rare videotape since 1984

A series of mainly mecha and some character scenes from Macross "TV On Air Version" set to Macross background music and Lynn Minmay songs. The video includes an unbroadcasted version of the opening title sequence without the actual printed credits, as well as the first ending title sequence (of Hikaru's sunset-lit racer) with the printed credits and the second ending title sequences without them.

Video Tape

45 minutes, VHS, color, Hi-Fi Stereo

VTG-38(VHS)

VBG-38 (Beta II)

Maker: Emotion (Bandai)

Distributor: Victor

1984 July 12 (discontinued)

Y9476

Y9800 (tax included)

I do have a copy of Macross Mecha Grafitti under the Miscellaneous Macross Video folder.

I'm downloading this "new" copy of Mecha Grafitti to see if it's a better version.

Screenshots of the newly released version:

You can see it has some banding issues at the bottom. There's also a small commentary by the capper at the end.

VHS banding issues make me nostalgic.

This "new" mecha graffiti is a keeper. I'll upload to the imacross4 server asap.

I know I can fix the vhs banding by doing a little video editing cropping. I'll fix that banding later when I put this video together with an M 20th updated subtitles dvd.

i had no idea this would actually go over as well as it did.

i mean, seriously, i did not expect it to get more than a couple of hits at most. those i assumed would be just curiosity things.

anyway, i did not remove the banding because it reminded me of the old days. and, i would like to ask you do not remove the little note at the end. please.

thank you, and if there is anything else you are looking for, please feel free to ask. my collection is quite extensive and you never know what i may or may not have. in fact, after near 25 years of collecting, i never know what i have anymore.

Someone had it and promised a subbed DVD version forever ago and it never happened... <_<

The subbed DVD was completed, check out the post below.

It was supposed to be available for sale to all MW members with the proceeds going towards the cost of running MW's servers. But that never happened.

Sorry, but too much time has passed and I absolutely want to see this special with or wihtout subs.

The Macross DYRL TV Special: For the record I have posted it here. This is the finished version with English subtitles.

Victor blocked it for USA and maybe other countries so you may need a proxy to view it. 

I know this is an old thread but in case someone comes looking there you have it.
