of course besides the obvious that one's in english and the other's in japanese. I know that they had to make changes in robotech to splice in southern cross and mospeada, but I was wondering if you just watch the first thirty six episodes of robotech, where the storyline would differ from sdf macross. I ask this because I've gotten my girlfriend into anime, but we mostly prefer to watch english dubbed shows, and while I have all of the subbed macross episodes, I haven't watched them, and so I'm not sure how the best way to go about showing this to her would be. now as a disclaimer, I'm mostly looking for an objective answer here. I don't mind the voices of minmay and all of the other cast in robotech, nor do I mind if they changed the names of the various characters/alien races/mechs. thanks!
