    Eh... putting aside my dislike of Kingdom Hearts, I don't think Hikaru Utada is stylistically a good fit for Macross.

    Macross's music tends to be more uptempo, bouncy pop music with the occasional sad song thrown in.  The obvious exceptions being Fire Bomber, which was uptempo rock music and the occasional ballad, and Sharon Apple's more experimental pop style that was achieved by having virtually every track be by a different artist.  Hikaru Utada's style, or at least the parts of it I've been most exposed to, are almost exclusively slow, sad songs, most of which sound the same.  Not really a great fit, in my opinion.  

    That kind of cameo is also pretty expensive, and even well-funded anime productions are still running on a razor-thin margin.  If they're going to do something like that, I'd rather see a collection of previous Macross vocalists collaborate on a show's opening, like what was done in Jojo's Bizarre Adventure Part IV: Diamond is Unbreakable with the UNITS version of Great Days.

    I get your point about her style not being Macross worthy.

  2. Yesterday, the evil Macross villain Bodolzaa was reincarnated as Donald Bodolzaa Trump by winning the 2016 presidential election!

    I mean their was supposedly a scene in the Anime TV series where Bodolzaa groped Misa Hayase boobs, which is similar to the infamous Donald Trump misogynist attitudes towards women via the "Grab Her By The Pussy" comment that was made towards the end of the election cycle. Which if it is true please let me know fans?

    I know I do not want to bring up politics, but because I made a parody of Donald Trump as Bodolzaa. And their where rumors about a supposed scene that was minor in the show. Lets discuss it.


  3. No for me. But I would buy an Ultimate release with proper subtitles and feature but not tied whatsoever with HG.

    I got confused at first since what you mentioned is that Sony has the rights to release anything related to Robotech, correct? So if they do release the SDFM series separately, does that mean they're going to release the 'original story' told in SDFM or story 'told' in Robotech? I don't think they have the right on the original story here, correct? So how come one can release the original story if they don't have right to? So what you're asking here is the Ultimate Robotech Macross Saga not The Super Dimension Fortress Macross.

    Because Sony has the rights to Robotech, it does lead to the potential possibility for Sony to do DVD/Blu-Ray re-releases and streaming of the 3 related Japanese series The Super Dimension Fortress Macross, Super Dimension Cavalry Southern Cross, and Genesis Climber MOSPEADA if they chose to do. But that is up to both Sony and HG which depends on the complicated licensing issues.

  4. Sorry, Macrossfanx9. I know you are new to the franchise and hyped at this prospect, but there is a LOT of bad blood between us and Harmony Gold for various historical and not-so-historical reasons.

    The short version is that they have been tremendous dicks(to put it mildly) to both the fanbase and the creators, and there is no great love for them here.

    Consequently most of us would, to put it bluntly, rather dance while they burn than give them one red cent. Hence the less-than-warm reception your idea has generated.

    I am aware about HG with the franchise, and knowing their track recored with both Robotech and Macross. It has a slim to none chance of happining. But I did do a poll above which has more yes votes then no votes, but you never know?

  5. As a recent fan of the awesome Anime Classic,The Super Dimension Fortress Macross. I am aware that Sony Pictures Entertainment owns the movie rights to Robotech movie, as well as home video/digital distribution/internet streaming for the Robotech series. It also means that Sony Pictures Entertainment has the rights to re-release The Super Dimension Fortress Macross, Super Dimension Cavalry Southern Cross, and Genesis Climber MOSPEADA.

    Because if Sony Pictures Entertainment did release the Ultimate The Super Dimension Fortress Macross Blu-Ray set, it would include the following:

    Master footage transfer based on the Japanese Blu-Ray release of The Super Dimension Fortress Macross: https://www.amazon.c...e/dp/B006QRCBG2

    All DVD/Blu-Ray extras from the previous DVD releases such as AnimEigo/ADV, as well as Japanese DVD/Blu-Ray extras, along with new extras.

    Has the original Japanese audio from the Japanese Blu-Ray release complete with subtitles based on the ADV DVD release. (The AnimeEigo subtitles had a few errors corrected on the ADV releases.)

    Has the 2006 ADV English dub complete with a new redub featuring most of the actors reprising their roles from Robotech except for Hikaru Ichijyo being voiced by Vic Mignogna and Lynn Minmay by Mari Iijima. (note: both Vic Mignogna and Mari Iijima live in Los Angeles, where Sony Pictures Entertainment is located.)

    Would you buy the Ultimate Blu-Ray set if it got made alongside other additions, let me know?

  6. Fun Fact related with both Capcom/Monster Hunter series and Shōji Kawamori/Macross.

    The Arcade/Sega Dreamcast game Tech Romancer was jointly made between Shōji Kawamori/Studio Nue (creator of Macross/Original Concept for the game) and Ryozo Tsujimoto(co-creator of Monster Hunter/planner of the game/a family member of Capcom founder Kenzo Tsujimoto).
    Here is info from Mobygames.com
  7. From their MW facebook.

    MacrossWorld Convention 2016 is coming to the Torrance Cultural Arts Center on Saturday, October 15th 2016! We're back for the #1 Macross fan convention in North America with cosplay, performances, our amazing dealer's room, special guests and new LOWER registration prices! Tasty Japanese food from Okamoto Kitchen and more! Tickets: https://mwcon.ticketleap.com/mwcon2016/dates/Oct-15-2016_at_1100AM #Macross #MacrossDelta #MacrossFrontier #anime #mecha #Minmay #Sheryl #Ranka #Freyja


    About the tickets, how does it work, it is not very clear, any explanation would be helpful?

  8. I think Folker was picked up as a common misspelling due to the way the English cast was pronouncing the name for the original dub. These linguistic errors happen, and they find their way into internet lore. But yeah...

    Macross: Roy Focker

    Robotech: Roy Fokker

    In both cases, the character is a direct nod to Anthony Fokker the aviation pioneer and aircraft manufacturer.

    Hay, that makes a lot of sense considering the series is no stranger at using references to real life aircraft stuff which Shōji Kawamori loves to references with the series.

  9. Hi Macross fans on the Macross World forums.

    I am doing a post on the censored/edited content of The Super Dimension Fortress Macross when it was adapted into the Macross Saga of Robotech. The post is inspired by the popular Anime uncensored websites such as Dragon Ball Z Uncensored, Sailor Moon Uncensored, and Yu-Gi-Oh! Uncensored, and Anime News Network The Edit List as we all know the first half of Robotech based on Super Dimension Fortress Macross was butchered by Harmony Gold with many changes. Including changes to tie in with the later unrelated TV series that it uses.

    Note that this project is WIP at the moment, but will update it if fans can help me out on this.

    And the comparisons are using the Japanese subtitle/ADV dub version with the original 1985 broadcast version of Robotech as the bases.

    It is worth mentioning that the Harmony Gold VHS Volume 1: Booby Trap/2004 Remaster version of the episodes from Harmony Gold do exist, but they are not as badly censored as the1985 broadcast version of Robotech.

    Lets begin!

    General changes

    Dialog with cursing/other questionable stuff changed

    Violence edited

    Sexual/Nudity edited

    Certain Beer/smoking usage in scenes edited?

    Copyrighted material edited?

    Roy Focker named pronounced as Roy Folker to avoid it sounding like an F word.

    Episode 1 edits/changes/surprise non edits

    Surprise not being edited scenes?

    1. Intro prolog violence uncut!
    1. Captain Global/Gloval pipe is uncut!
    1. When Hikaru/Rick Hunter crashes, the person near by in one scene is not edited?

    Edited scense!

    1. Murder changed to killer to be less threatening the word and enemy plains # reduced in Robotech version. When Hikaru/Rick Hunter and Roy Focker are talking to each other in the early half of the episode.

    2.The scene with the cola machine bot with Lynn Minmay and Yoshio who wants cola is different where Yoshio wants to go pee, but in the Robotech version,

    he still wants more cola.

    3.Lynn Minmay walking away scene with skirt cut out as it could be scene as inappropriate by some.

    4.Violent explosion is edited by cropping the scene.

    5. crap word changed to Hikaru English name Rick Hunter said by Roy Focker

    6. Dame it changed to I can not take control of it said by Hikaru/Rick Hunter.

    Feedback would be welcome, and more episodes coming soon?

  10. Dear Macross world Community,

    I have been looking for the 1984 Macross Volume 1: Booby Trap VHS Harmony Gold dub online, but can not find it anywhere. I would like to compare it with the ADV Uncut Dub, the 1985 Robotech broadcasting, and the 2004 Remaster version of the episodes in terms of censorship of dialog/scenes, etc?

    If anyone can link it to me to watch online, or have a download link, please let me know?

  11. Well his account does appear to be closed, or at least in active.

    I did meet him recently at AnimeExpo 2016 and he mentioned that he had probably been banned.

    I didn't inquire further since I'm sorta new to this online Macross community in general and didn't want to get into any unpleasant details that I didn't have context for.

    I was at AnimeExpo 2016 and got to see the Shōji Kawamori panel, it was awesome!

  12. I and a couple other people asked this question on the Macross Fans-US Facebook group a week or two back, and the answer we got was:

    Saturday, 15 October 2016

    Torrance Cultural Arts Center

    Torrance, CA.

    Not sure if that date is set in stone, but that's all I've seen said of it to date.

    Thanks for the potential date, it would be nice if Mari Iijima (Lynn Minmay actress) and Shōji Kawamori(creator) attend the event, any info if both are attending?

  13. As a fan of Macross, and enjoying the Misa Hayase: White Reminiscenses Novel Translation from Gubaba (who is unfortunately banned from the site!).
