I can safely say that the new Robotech movie was pure crap after watching a downloaded copy. The movie was not self-contained since anyone who forgot or is unfamiliar with the series will have no fucking clue what’s going on. It does not help that this film was written by Wapanese for Wannabe-Japanese (Wapanese) or American Otaku in mind. This would explain all the goofy dialogue, the horrible voice acting, and the numerous cliches that are found in Americanised Anime that is adored by these Weeaboo bastards.
It is true that Mark Hamill lends his voice as Rick Hunter from the original series in this film. However, his screen time is only limited to about 5 minutes and his character disappears for the rest of the film. Plotwise, this movie seems to be a rejected pilot for a new Robotech series with its batch of new characters, new enemies, and new “mecha” to appeal to Wapanese of all generations. This film has actually increased my intolerance towards those Wapanese bastards and their poor tastes in Japanese animation and popular culture.
I am sure many Wapanese/Weeaboos would flame me for disliking this movie and even play the race card by claiming I am “anti-Japanese” for hating this film. To be fair, although this movie was animated by a prominent Japanese animation studio, the story was written by Wapanese for Wapanese along with casting voice actors that are known to butcher English-language dubs. With that said, this is essentially a dumbed-down Wapanese interpretation of the worst elements of Anime on film. The only things that even remotely made the new Robotech movie appealing were the animation and hiring Mark Hamill for voicework.
