Fifteen years have passed since the war against Zentraedi
forces, but the peaceful existence of the survivors of that
first alien conflict is eventually shattered by the invasion
of the Robotech Masters. The Masters have come to Earth to
reclaim the Protoculture Matrix. Discovered by mankind decades
ago when the SDF-1 interstellar battle-cruiser crash-landed
on the planet, the Matrix was found to be the source of power
for the mysterious Robotechnology. Now, the people of Earth
must one again defend their home against invading alien forces.
Leading the battle against the Robotech Masters are the courageous
members of the misfit 15th Squadron, headed by Dana Sterling,
the daughter of the ace Veritech pilot Max Sterling, and Zentraedi
pilot, Miriya Parino...
The Masters - Volume 1 features
12 digitally remastered episodes that continues the action
that unfolded in the first series. An epic sci-fi fable that
spans three generations of human struggle against alien domination,
Robotech is one of the most successful anime franchises
of all time. The series has inspired two animated feature
film spin-offs as well as countless novels, comic books, toys
and video games... so says the press release.
on the other hand, you are like me, you'll probably never
have heard of Robotech before Manga started re-releasing
this series on DVD. Well, don't let that stop you from picking
up this interesting collection. The animation has improved
somewhat since the first series and the writing is much tighter.
saga - that is really about mankind's first contact with warring
alien races, and the use of alien technology to defend Earth
- is told across three chapters, The Macross Saga,
The Robotech Masters (this season), and The New
Generation. Released in 1985, the show was the first anime
series that many fans had seen, and is often accredited as
the cause of the anime fandom that continues to grow today
in the United States.
Masters series begins 15 years after the Macross Saga,
the first graduating class of the United Earth Forces Military
Academy prepares to carry on in the tradition of the officers
and crew of the SDF-1. Earth is not the pleasant planet
it once was. While new cities have been rebuilt on top of
the destroyed ones, many of them are now designated no go
zones, due to the high levels of radiation.
series follows the lives of the young graduates, including
Diana Sterling, who are employed to keep the alien threat
at bay. But, with the alien warships slowly approaching Earth,
does mankind really hope to fend off a serious attack, especially
after it is still licking it's wounds from the first barrage.
no doubting that Robotech is an enjoyable, and intelligently
written series. Sadly, Robot stories like these seem to be
a product of the '80s, and it's doubtful whether many of today's
younger generation will embrace this series in the way that
children of the '80s would have.
