We are giving away Robotech: The Complete Original Series on DVD!
This might be one of my favorite cartoons ever and I can't wait to share it with you. One of my children even got stuck with a middle name from one of my favorite characters in the show (Miriya Sterling)
A & E has put out a new, definitive, remastered edition with all the special features you could shake a fist at. It's really an incredible set.
From the official description:
ROBOTECH is a sweeping science-fiction anime epic of humans defending their home world 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 millennium. 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."
Carl Macek’s groundbreaking sci fi epic has enthralled audiences since it first appeared on American television in 1985. One of the first-ever anime imports, this saga spans three generations of mankind’s fight for freedom.
ROBOTECH: THE COMPLETE SERIES contains the remastered versions of all 85 episodes from the three Robotech Wars: THE MACROSS SAGA, THE ROBOTECH MASTERS and THE NEW GENERATION.
The contest will be open until Friday, October 28th. Winners will be announced on Monday, October 31th.
