Description

Often compared to STAR TREK and STAR WARS, ROBOTECH is a uniquely addictive, multi-generational animated serial that recounts the death-defying adventures of a group of heroes called upon to defend their world against a seemingly unstoppable alien invasion.

In the years since its initial broadcast, ROBOTECH has remained one of the most critically acclaimed animated science-fiction television series - fostering its own huge multi-generational fanbase. But ROBOTECH is much more than a wildly improbably fan favorite. It is an intricate story - an intimate epic - that spoke its message of hope and courage to an entire generation of young minds...

The MACROSS SAGA kicks off - and now you can own the entire first act of ROBOTECH in one remarkable collection.

For the first time, complete in one fantastic multi-disc collection, the entire 36-episode first act of the groundbreaking animated adventure! Approximate running time: 900min.

"Just the best Anime EVER!!!!!!" by Ice Cube (Netherlands) on Mar 4, 2004

"This is simply the greatest Anime adventure ever created!!" by Micha Muscus (Netherlands) on Dec 19, 2003

As a Transformer fan and collecter, I took a little sidestep by checking out the history of Robotech, or more specifically, Macross. The Transformer Jetfire is was a re-labelled Veritech fighter plane from the Macross series. Since that is one of the greatest Transformers ever, I figured it was worth my while to check out Macross. So I checkt out some of the toys and saw this DVD set. I decided to buy it, since I liked the veritechs so much.

Well, what unfolded before me, was simply to cool for words. I never thought I would ever say this, but this 36 episode story is better than any movie I've ever seen, better than any book I ever read and even beats my beloved Transformers TV-series.
Don't get me wrong, To me Transformers was the coolest TV series ever, but it can't compete with a cartoon that has a great consecutive storyline like this one. Transformer cartoons were just stand alone episodes in most cases, while this cartoon is one giant cartoon cut into 36 pieces.

At first it took some getting used to and their isn't always as much action as any single Transformer episode. But because of the suspense build-up and the character bio-buildup, you get much more envolved. In that way, it can indeed only be compared to the whole Starwars saga, which is consecutive as well.

The series constantly uses great musical tunes in combat situations and the Veritechs in action are extremely cool. It is unlikely that anything as cool as this 36 episode story will ever be written again. Definitely a must have if you like action cartoons or if you like robots.
