The end to the Harmony Gold-Macross debacle

Big West, Studio Nue, Harmony Gold USA Agree to Global Distribution of Macross, Robotech

What are your thoughts on this? How would Satelight and its partners push Macross in America from this point on? What could we expect from them other than Blu-Ray releases of previous Macross series?

Re: Oldschool OVAs You Wish Were Completed

How do you guys think about the Gunsmith Cats OVA? Would you like an entire series that covers the original manga and its sequel? (On that note, I wonder what Kenichi Sonoda is doing nowadays?

Re: Tokyo Babylon gets a new anime adaptation!

To me, it sounds like the initial discovery of them copying other people's outfits lead them to look more closely and discover more problems...and yeah, I assume they tried to see if the work done already could be salvaged, but just couldn't. And they said they "lost faith" in the studio,...
