LOL, I think we just hit yet another observation/instance of cultural difference.

Germans and the German language demand logic. Yot on the other hand, just won't give any...

Well, I am big on sourcing your commentary. Comes with being an historian, I guess. ^^

After all, American (and European) companies have no problem translating/subtitling their stuff for local markets although piracy exists.

I already said that I would buy Macross Frontier DVD's if they were out there with subtitles. Also, isn't there the additional problem for Macross with Teh Debbil, erm, I mean Harmony Gold?
I think you misunderstand. I'm definitely putting ALL the blame on the Japanese companies (in this case, Bandai Visual) for being short-sighted. Heck, they don't even put JAPANESE subtitles on 'em! (There was one guy on Amazon.co.jp giving one stars to a lot of anime BD sets because his deaf uncle liked to watch anime, but the sets had no captions).

That said, Yamato 2199 has English subs, Gundam Unicorn, and I think Haruhi... so they're beginning to wake up, maybe.

And they really DO seem to view foreign countries as being populated solely with anime pirates. It's really frustrating.

Anyway, I doubt the new Frontier boxset with have subs, but it's still a possibility.

Alrighty, I definitely misread your comment then and I apologize. Please, if you get info that this new release has subs, spread the information, because I would like to support the franchise for things I can actually fully use.

Yeah, I for one would DEFINITELY buy a superset or whatever, if it contained english subs, at least.
I'm not rich, but this is something I'd get into trouble with the wife for.

I happen to have purchased a lot of Frontier stuff... model kits, the two movie hybrid packs/game, Macross 30... books... friggin RC cars (which will probably never be opened), did I mention model kits that is now as high as the ceiling and still not assembled? Yeah... I definitely buy my Frontier... fix... and its costing me a lot of dough.

And this is on top of an already very expensive hobby. Sigh.

You misunderstand. There's no Kickstarter here. That's a Robotech thing.

Will do! (although, REALLY... ? You haven't memorized the subs by this point...? Hopeless, my friend, hopeless...)

I still hope for a high-res sub which returns to "hopes and dreams", what can I say.

The Alto Festival was pretty lame. Little more than a booth where people could write birthday messages to Alto, and buy leftover merch from the various Tokyo events over the past year or so.

The life-size VF-1S cockpit, on the other hand, was pretty cool.

And we went to what was advertised as a talk show by Hidetaka Tenjin, but Kawamori showed up as a surprise guest.

More later. Right now, it's time for sleep.

I hope you told him that we gaijin need official subs. And Frontier OVA's.

Realistically speaking, I assume that he was mobbed by fans or shielded by security, of course.

That's a business decision. Not his department.

And we've already told the Big West people, so they know.

The first 2 were used for a poster or wall scroll and maybe a cushion in the past. Did you leave any messages? What was the festival about?

No, I really couldn't figure out what to say to Alto... "Come back soon"? "You're not born yet, but happy birthday anyway"? "You, er... aren't gonna read this, are you"...?

As for the "festival," it was for Alto's birthday, but it was really just an excuse to sell leftover merch in Osaka (which is fine, since most of the Osaka fans couldn't get it, and I managed to pick up some stuff I'd missed before).
