what did they do to poor minmei?was this really necessary?
Minmei started cute but became very unlikable by the end and her depression could've been avoided if she made better decisions.Imagine being so bad at decision making you end up fucking your hypocritical cousin no one likes.
>>17609822> Robotech; was this really necessary?
>>17609822>brain extraction>on minmaylol jokes on you, fag
>>17609842No. This meme is dead.Robotechx laughed for real.They won. The rest of humanity lost.35 years.
>>17609847>They wonThey won all right. More failed kickstarters and projects that will never materialize. Also a live action movie that will forever be in production limbo.
>>17609822Why did they kill Lisa?>>17609856Why did they kill Minmei?Who let them extend their copyright for another 19 years?
>>17609840Yeah. Kinda. I know it's not easy for you to understand shit about how hard it was to broadcast and get anime back then, but you're a retard who probably only started Macross with Frontier.
>>17609822Remember Robotechers hate Minmei with a burning rage of a thousand failed kickstarter backers. They don't need her in their mature war drama for mature adults.
>>17610447What the think about Gundam?
>>17610447where is his penis
>>17609847>No. This meme is dead.>Robotechx laughed for real.>They won.
I didn't think the comics were that different. Where can i read this garbage?
>>17609842I come for TokuI don't get this meme
>>17611335It was in mockery of self-important Robotech fans.Except now it's not really funny because they have been validated, to the disdain of everyone else on the internet.
>>17609847I want to shitpost not to feel.
>>17611335A few years back a faggot was coming on /m/ posting about recruiting Robotech fans to harass Mari Iijima, a voice actress from Macross who at the time didn't want to talk about Macross, and then claim to be Macross fans to make her hate Macross more. He ended his little screed with "And we at Robotechx.com all laughing!" That last line became the meme.
>>17609847Isn't the meme more relevant than ever, then? They really are all laughing.
>picking up garbage and being surprised to find garbage there
>>17609847No anon. Macross won. This way we will not have to see it become a live action film as the horror of Alita and soon Gundam has shown.
>>17611307Does not convert.
>>17610148That doesn't answer my question anon. I didn't ask if it could have gotten broadcast any other way; I asked if it was necessary i.e. would it have been better to not bring it over at all if that was the only way to do it. Anime was big in America before, and there was a quiet period for anime after it for another few years until Sailor Moon, Dragonball etc. suggesting the anime wave would have hit even in the US without it, so was it actually necessary?
>>17611307Their society is formally split along gender lines, and the two rarely interact while reproduction is handled via cloning: he doesn't have a penis.
>>17611314readcomiconline is where i read this mess
>>17612322>Anime was big in America before,No it fucking wasn't. Not in 1985. Robotech was one of the reasons it GOT popular in the US.
>>17612376No, it wasn't. There were several notable anime in the US years before Robotech. Speed Racer, Star Blazers and Battle of the Planets to name a few. Robotech was one of the big hits of that time period, but it wasn't the first by any stretch and there's no reason to believe anime wouldn't have made it without Robotech, because someone had brought anime had been brought over in waves every decade or so for years before that point.
>>17612357whoever wrote this shit must really hate minmei
>>17612376>>17612396Wasn't Robotech one of the first anime brought over to the west that was largely unedited (i.e. people were actually shown dying rather than being papered over with 'he was only injured'/ 'the city was evacuated'/'he got blasted into another dimension!'/'I can see their parachutes' and other assorted nonsense). I mean, considering the era it aired in, it's kind of amazing some of the stuff Robotech got away with showing onscreen like a fucking genocide, main characters drinking, a cross-dressing main character and so on.
I'm not too upset about getting a bunch of minmay getting slapped around
>>17611591Was this before or after she went nuts when her pet bunny died?
>>17612873https://desuarchive.org/m/search/text/robotechx.com/order/asc/ seems to indicate it goes back to 2012?
>>17612546Yep. Robotech was a key step along the way. Both sides will argue with you about how big, but it did change things.
These comic panels are nuts. There's hating a character, and then there's having them tortured and driven insane in official material that you're writing
>>17612900She gets better and gets away. Sheesh man, characters can suffer on their journey.
>>17611314This I from the Sentinels. The story that happens after the original Macross Saga and to the side of the other two.It's the Macross cast going off to space to take on the Robotech Masters and then the Invid to prevent another doomsday scenario on Earth.
You can really tell someone is a shit writer when events revolve around the same handful of characters over and over and over and over
>>17612429Whoever wrote this must really love doing drugs
>>17612876jesus christ those threads
>>17612876Danm, these threads are so cursed.This was before than 4chan "outlawed" calls to raids, right?
>>17609840BASEDFUCK Minmay and FUCK Robotech
>>17612429That picture's asking for a laughing Heero shop.
>>17611591Holy shit, seriously fuck those autistic fucks. Mari Ijima is insane but why fuck with her? Seriously, it's like punching a fetus
the Japanese only robotech shows are actually not that good.
>>17609822>>17612429>>17612556>>17613012I'm all for shitting on Minmei but this just seems to be in service of some darker fetish shit.
>>17612904no one knows if she felt better after all that cuz the comic shut down after that and she sorta got saved off page
>>17613313There are no Japanese only Robotech shows. They are about as existent as the Robotech Live Action Movie or Wave 2 of Robotech RPG Tactics.
>>17609842>>17609848I've been waiting for you, Star Fox.
>>17612429>>17612556>>17613012I don't like Minmei either but this takes it to another level.
>>17613594>in robotech minmay is a hyperbimbo and gets heavily abusedwtf now I love robotech?
>>17616455STAGE FRIGHT SPLASHINGGGGGG
>>17609847It's not actually 35 years that they get it for. It was a turn of phrase, basically "for the last 35 and hopefully the next 35". HG probably got an extension because of the movie in development with Sony.
>>17609881Thank you for the chuckle
