Thought we generally had a policy of not posting scans of entire books here?

Unlicensed Macross items and straight up bootlegs were taboo once too....now there are entire threads that more or less have legitimized these items....

The argument is often made that none of this Macross goodness is ever intended for a non-Japanese consumer...so I suppose you can also argue that any "lost sales" resulting from such posts are just wishful thinking...

Unless you are HG....but I doubt anyone here is inclined to defend their licensing claims...

:unknw:

Which, really, shouldn't have happened given the forum rules... I've argued against it on a few occasions, in light of the obviously criminal nature of some of those enterprises.

On quite a few other sites, you could perhaps make a case for that... but this is a site where posting that kind of thing really could result in lost sales from people not importing the books, because we are exactly the kind of people who DO import goods directly from Japan.

Received my copy of the Kawamori Expo book (thanks to you know who you are), and it is just fantastic.

There are so many new pictures, I forgot what it felt like to see something for the first time again with Macross art!
Armed with Google Translate on my phone it was very enjoyable to 'read' ha.

If you can find this 2nd hand I highly recommend it. :)

The Mikimoto book is delayed to 3/3/20-3/6/20.

... and people wonder why Cycomi apparently dropped Macross the First.

Mikimoto-sensei must be a Douglas Adams fan.  Mr. Adams once opined "I love deadlines. I like the whooshing sound they make as they fly by."
