Fuck, I thought it was some joke, but this news coming from Hollywood Reporter, I facepalmed.

The only ones who are going to love this development are those hardcore Macek apologists and that Yune carpetbagger running HG; I believe that even up to his demise Macek kept on insisting that claim he created the show, and insultingly viewed Nue as mere "hired hands".

Of course this thing will never see the light of day in Japan.

Well, there's an off chance that people in America will finally Remember Love.

Or it could just be about killing aliens with starscreams. Either works.

Robotech: rise of the Starscream clone army against xenomorph rejects, plus racial stereotypes & Bon Jovi songs that does not fit with the tone of the movie.......

I know a few people that like Robotech but cannot handle Macross (or at least anything beyond the orignal). Almost specifically because of the idol singing fixation (and Macross 7 didn't help either).

Well, to each their own.

Say, do you happen to know a good supplier around here for pitchforks, torches, and good firewood?
I'm probably gonna need a few thousand.

I've met loads on model-building forums. It seems to be a sizable group of fans. They tend to like Macross Plus as well. Same arguments all the time: idols are equaled to moe characters and magical powers have no place in serious sci-fi.

I reckon it's a fanbase made up of people that love 1970s/80s syndicated cartoons (made in Japan) and those that can't connect with modern (late night) anime.

Macross ain't Macross without defeating the enemy through the power of LOVE .

It's blasphemy to blast Macross for being cheesy and unrealistic!

So unfortunately yeah, we're probably never going to see SDF Macross in America. That would take not only HG to surrender the license and kill their own Robotech, but also for Tatsunoko and Big West to kiss and make up. I have hopes for the other Macross titles that HG didn't touch though (especially since some leaked through in the... 1990s? Once the movie is released and hype dies down/everyone forgets Robotech again, maybe someone else will do a roundabout Western release of other Macross titles).
