whoa! Hey Alphonse, I know you like writing those long posts, so go ahead, please explain to me what I must have missed in Kai Doh Maru, because I am sorry, but I really can't see anything compelling about it and I am sure there is something, there has to be something... I think it was even well reviewed.

well, i'm sure many of you have heard of Robotech, and whether you like it or not (because of the nature of it's existence) there has been a 90 min. sequel that been completed--The Shadow Chronicles is all new animation utilizing 2D anime and CG sequences. it will be direct to DVD once Harmony Gold finds a distributor.

Robotech was created from hashed up footage and storyline of Macross (listed). Rick Hunter is called Hikaru Ichijo in Macross, and Lisa Hayes is Misa Hayase. Minmei keeps the same name for both, but she sings beautifully in Macross thanks to voice actress Mari Iijima. Definately see Macross if you only know Robotech. I was lucky and both new of and saw Macross first (well, kind of; I bought the film "Do You Remember Love" and a tape of the first three episodes of Robotech right around the same time to begin with). Therefore I am uncorrupted by such things as an "annoying" Minmei...

yeah, that's what i meant by it being contoversial, since robotech combined macross, super dimension southern cross and genesis climber mospeada into a single storyline...however, robotech served as many-a-gen-xer's intro to anime..... if i'm not mistaken ADV is releasing a new english dub of the original macross series with mari iijima restarring the role.

Hey Al! I don't mean to be putting pressure, but you really made me curious about what you enjoyed in Kai Doh Maru...

Heh, sorry. Just noticed your post. I wasn't "at" the Forum for a few days. (That's going to happen more and more as summer looms... Shocked Crying or Very sad )

Short answer is, I liked the color scheme, I thought it was an interesting take on the whole tragic period love story thing, and I liked the way it played with gender.

Long answer will come sometime next week...

I wasn't ignoring you. Cool

.

update: FUNimation (distributor of Fullmetal Alchemist) will distribute Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles. Animation has been done by DR Movie!! Talks of possible theatrical release, but personally i doubt that.

Is there an original Appleseed?!

I've only seen the newer, CG version. Would that be a remake?

Yep. There is an original Appleseed. It's very Shirow-esque which means I like it. Smile My Blockbuster had it, so you might be able to find it in your local video store.
