5.0 out of 5 stars An underrated gem January 6, 2008

This volume covers the second half of the under-appreciated "Robotech Masters" saga following the adventures of Dana Sterling and the Earth Robotech Defense Force after the SDF-3 departs to the the world of the Robotech Masters.

Most of what made the original Macross great (great characterization, drama, action, and storyline) was present to a slightly less (albeit still satisfying) degree in Robotech Masters. A common complaint leveled against the series is that the characterization is "poor" and that only a relatively few characters (i.e Dana Sterling) have any depth. The only merit that I can find to this statement is that a few members of the 15th ATAC Squadron were not as fleshed out as other characters. This may be true in a sense, but this is looking at the glass half-empty instead of half-full. The larger cast of good guys in Robotech Masters meant that a smaller fraction (though not necessarily smaller number) of these good guys could be given screentime as major characters. In retrospect, even Macross had several "underdeveloped" characters. For instance, a full half of the members of the SDF-1 bridge (Vanessa Leeds, Sammie Porter, and Kim Young) are relative unknowns, with the viewer barely learning anything more about them than their basic military duties. Furthermore, exempting major characters, most of the Skull Squadron remain little more than anonymous wingmen throughout the series.

3.0 out of 5 stars disc problems November 22, 2008
Verified Purchase
I enjoy the episodes very much, but the problems I experienced were defects in the discs themselves. I bought a copy of volume 5 first from [...] then one from Amazon. Both copies contained discs with a physical deformity on the data side that prevents the discs from playing through all the way. Amazon is awesome, they paid shipping and are giving a refund. I only hope I can get a working replacement from the other place. Otherwise, I will be concerned that ADV Films has a whole batch of them out there that are bad. I wrote to ADV Films and never heard back from them. And I asked the other retailer if they had similar reports to mine and they never answered, just said they'd replace the discs. But they don't open up the replacements, so I am likely going to get another copy of defective discs, after paying shipping to send them in. Really sucks as I have all the other Robotech Remastered volumes, and so my collection will either end up with defective discs in the collection or no volume 5. Wonder if I can sue ADV Films for refusing to acknowledge the current manufacturing problem. Emotional distress or something, maybe? :)

2.0 out of 5 stars The originals were much better October 15, 2005
When I was a kid, I saw the original Robotech series and was instantly hooked to anime. It was the first anime show I had ever seen. I love Robotech, but the way Harmony Gold and ADV Films re-mastering it, they totally ruined it.

The originals were rated "G" and were great just the way the were. In the re-mastered versions, they added unnecessary deleted scene, basically all the nude scene that were deleted were put back making it a "PG-13." Those scenes didn't add to the story line or make it better, they were very pointless and avoidable.

The new re-mastered are also more expensive then the originals. But that's to be expected because they are suppose to be better and newer. And in the end, the re-mastered DVDs also have some trailers to other animes and shows from ADV Films.

These were hard to watch because they just weren't the shows I saw as a kid. I absolutely can not recommend this version even with the re-mastering. If you want to see what Robotech is really all about, check out the originals:

-Robotech - The Macross Saga - Complete Collection

-Robotech - The Masters - Complete Collection

-Robotech - New Generation - Complete Collection

Ironically, these are by far superior to the re-mastered editions.
