This week: my two cents on the 2011 Robotech animation project that’s being previewed at all the major stops of The Tommy Yune Show Featuring Robotech 2011 Tour. Snark aside, I’m cautiously interested, mostly due to the fact that the alleged lead character is someone I felt The Shadow Chronicles ignored for the sake of streamlining its story, the Invid princess Sera.
IN OTHER NEWS:
– Funny thing happened yesterday. After receiving my new copy of the 2nd Robotech Legacy Collection box set on Friday, the ex-coworker who still had the old one dropped by the store and returned it to me. Ain’t that the way life always goes?
– I watched the first episode of an all-new anime show in a timely fashion for the first time in forever, and it was extremely good. Seriously, the first episode of Sunrise’s TIGER & BUNNY was the most exciting first episode of an anime I’ve watched in years. Fame-whore corporate-sponsored superheroes competing in a reality show, trying to balance fighting for truth and justice with keeping the shareholders happy. It’s a Joe Casey-style story directed by the guy who designed the characters and mecha for THE BIG O, and visually it’s oozing with pizazz. With all that going for it, there’s no good reason not to watch it.
– Remember, the daily Robotech posts start tomorrow! I’ll be burning through the first disc sometime this afternoon. What better way to spend my birthday than revisiting one of my most favorite things ever?
– Oh, and yeah, that’s right — I turn thirty today. Wow. Scary.
