Editorial Reviews

ROBOTECH is a sweeping science-fiction anime epic of humans defending their homeworld against alien domination. The saga is told through the eyes of characters caught up in a series of wars that erupts when a mysterious spacecraft crash-lands on Earth at the turn of the millenium. The secrets of alien knowledge aboard this vessel were unlocked, leading to the development of "Robotechnology" and the creation of a vast arsenal of robotic "mecha" to defend the Earth against the alien threats that would eventually strike to lay claim to the mysterious power source known as "protoculture."

THE NEW GENERATION

Weary from constant battle with the Robotech Masters, the United Earth Forces eventually fell to the Invid Invasion. Lt Cmdr Scott Bernard leads a tight-knit team of freedom fighters towards the main Invid base located at Reflex Point. Their greatest hope for liberating the Earth lies with the return of Admiral Hunter’s Expeditionary Force…

And so we arrive at the thrilling conclusion of the ROBOTECH saga, Carl Macek’s pioneering anime epic. This DVD set contains all 25 episodes of the remastered version of THE NEW GENERATION, aka, THE THIRD ROBOTECH WAR.

It is hard to rate this series as I have loved it since I was a kid, so it has a special place in my heart. The animation is decent for the time. Unfortunately there is no attempt to remaster at this price level. It is barebones, however, they do replace the opening credits with the original series credits, but shorten it to fit with the standard Robotech theme.

As far as story goes, if you're reading this you've already seen this show. Each of the characters in the series are fleshed out nicely, even Mint, who is just worthless for the most part. Normally I do not latch on to the principal character as they tend to be the standard "goody goody" but not Scott Bernard. He has all the ear marks of a good leader, but he is too caught up in his deontology point of view to consider the other characters all too much. It's obvious he cares for them in his own way, but it struck me that he had a little too much of a machevellian viewpoint. That's my assessment 21 years later. When I first watched this show I was just happy Scott wasn't a pansy like Rick Hunter. I appreciated his sense of duty and his drive to fight for what he thought was right.

The other characters are archetypical, just as Scott is, and the next in line as far as fleshed out was Lancer. However, the creators of Robotech made absolutely no attempt to mask his voice when he was dressed as Yellow. Even his singing voice sounds like a gravely dude singing it. Mospeada (the Japanese show this part of Robotech was based on--just in case you're a Lunk) just flat-out uses a woman's voice with mixed success.

Everyone else is forgettable.

I do wish they would have ended the series better, but considering the source, it ended as well as it was going to.

Robotech: New Generation is the third part of the Robotech story. It's incredible that some of the topics, issues, and images in "New Generation" made it past the censors and onto mid-afternoon TV for kids, but thank god it did because this series ranks as one of the best cartoon adventures of all time! The DVD I received through Amazon was in perfect condition and the video and audio quality is excellent.

OK americans, this is the 3rd and final installment in the Robotech Saga(aka Genesis Climber Mospeada)and its the best one to me, no Minmay here, this is war! I have been immersed in the original Japanese OVAs(Macross, Southern Cross, Mospeada)which are not hard to find but they are not cheap b/c the distro ADV is no more and they go for 50-100$ easy but I SWEAR its SOO much better, I mean night and day, man! This part(Mospeada)is a violent and unforgiving world, the whole Robotech Master idea is gone, it borders on a HEAVY METAL(1981)style storyline, b/c all 3 RT sagas are very watered down versions of the originals. These shows were watched by kids and parents in japan during 'primetime' and wow, just WOW. Im sitting here posing/'transforming' my Scott Bernard figure right now!

It was a good ending, however, I wish they would have have taken another 2-3 episodes to really tie it up fully. It seemed to be kind of rushed and truncated. I wished that Scott wouldn't have left Marlene but I quess he was just one of those guys that always has to be serving something greater than himself, otherwise he finds no meaning in his own life. In this case I think it was just because he was scared of facing his feelings for Marlene. A good series, as I stated before: The first robotech war series was the classic, the second robotech war series was just a time/space filler (pardon the pun) and the third robotech war series was a good ending to it.

good robotech, Iliked it better than "the Masters"---the some of the characters are cute, others are scary, but most of them are interesting I think that the Robotech saga was ahead of it's time back in the 80"s.

Great cartoon! Highly recommend this series! Thanks again! The Robotech series is a great series as a whole, and the New Generation Saga pushes the envelope. Unlike the Masters Saga, the New Generation starts fast and hits hard! A + + + + + + + + + + +!

Whoever was responsible for overlaying new sound effects over the classic series should be fired. It is basically unwatchable with the new sound effects. Literally the first episode with the invid invasion they used fire work sounds for ships exploding!!!!! It was awful!!! I want my 10 bucks back...
