Episode Six: Robotech Returns! A talk with Tommy Yune.

Brought to you a week early, because we just can’t keep this one under wraps any longer. Bringing old school back to live, is Mr.Tommy Yune, the director of the new production Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles.

Robotech was one of the first titles to bring you into anime way back there in the era that paleontologists call "the 1980's", then you probably noticed that it looked a little disjointed, and that was because what we all knew of as “Robotech” was actually a few separate Japanese series (called Macross) edited together to make a completely separate story line. Now if the name Carl Macek doesn't ring any bells for better or worse, and you get a confused look on your face when someone humms "Robotech, to the Rescue!" then here is your chance to stop feeling left out.
