    Isnt Robotech the english mistranslation of Macross?

    and truth be told, i kinda like Macross if there is a diference. i especially like that mid transfomed state, that was a nifty little feature. my only complaint of the shows is the head wanst realling appealing to me (thats the gundam fan talking)

    Since I only vaguely remember Robotech from when I was a kid, I don't have that big of an attachment to it. But, I have enjoyed what Macross I have seen as an adult, so I pick Macross.

    Robotech was Harmony Gold's version in 1985-86. They changed some names around, put some dialogue that wasn't in there, etc. The episodes essentially had the same dialogue, it's that Robotech also mixed in two other series with it.

    The only experience I have with anything Robotech is when I played Robotech: Battlecry on the PS2, but I still quite liked it. I've not had any with Macross, but I plan on fixing that tomorrow.

    The ADV dub of Macross; which by the way is on Hulu.com

    Note: Hulu.com is a completely legal site as they have the proper licenses to air the stuff. How do they get the money? Through the constant ads they air as sponsors.

    The dub by ADV was made in 2005 and released 2006. I'm not sure if the dub is still out there.
