Why does /m/ despise Robotech so much? Everyone here hates it. Admittedly it has flaws. The show was still important historically though. Robotech paved the way for anime in the West. Only heavily localized anime was viable in the 80s. Bringing Macross over unaltered might easily have fizzled. Or worse, turned the demographic against anime. That was too risky at the time. Even just doing a straight dub might have failed. Cringe at "protoculture" fuel if you want but it's not that bad. Hate is too strong a reaction. X-men had loads of stupid shit and people don't hate it. . Crap like that is minor. Objectively, Robotech and Macross are almost the same. Macross fans hate to admit it but it's basically true.
All said, there are worse Westernized mecha shows. Like Toonami SEED. Like British Bright. Like those lying ZZ subs. All worse than Robotech. Undeniably so IMO. Garbage, all of it.
Harmony Gold are dicks with the IP. I play Battletech, I know. No arguments. Gotta keep that seperate from the show itself though.
An apology to all of /m/

What's up guys?
WackyModder84 here, and I would like to sincerely apologize to all of /m/ for all the times I kept slamming Gundam Seed Destiny to the point where you were beyond sick and tired of it.
I now understand what you see in this deep, rich story with it's cleverly written characters, and beautifully animated action scenes.
Recycled footage is a bitch, but that's a minor annoyance I immediately forgot about. Music is some of the best shit I've ever heard in my life. Totes worth rewatching the show almost 60 times.
Praise Jesus Yamato. Jesus Yamato is love, Jesus Yamato is life.
Happy Aprils Fools Day, everyone!
