    If they made a new Robotech that was as engaging as the new Voltron that would be way cool.

    Find a way to destroy Harmony Gold and you'll get your wish.

    Or Harmony Gold could just do their own remaster. They do "own" all rights to Macross in the US. They don't need special permission to do a BD release.

    They released Macross on DVD here in the US. Is Blu Ray really going to somehow improve it? Its hand drawn animation from the early 80's.

    They don't have all the rights, but you're correct that they don't need permission for a remaster. What they also don't have is the budget for another remaster. I don't see it happening.

    Yes. Holy crap, yes. By a lot, actually. I've seen the Japanese Blu-Rays. There's a lot of background subtlety that gets lost in SD, and even the cells have some fine line work that I never noticed before. Native 24fps helps a lot too. It benefits about as much as Transformers: The Movie. Hand drawn animation from the 1980s makes for better Blu-Ray candidates in general than late '90s and early '00s animation, precisely because it is hand-drawn, and shot on film.

    Macross 7 benefits even more, as the neon colors are less hyper-saturated when remastered from film. They must have really tweaked the broadcast masters for that one. The Blu-Rays look and feel a lot more like the original series.

    It was animated on film, so yes, it will be THAT much of an improvement. Have you not checked out the Gundam BDs like the original, Zeta, and ZZ?

    Also, the DVDs I have don't include an English dub and they made a brand new dub for the show like 15 years ago, so it would be nice to have that included too.

    You know, it's time HG takes that dildo out of their ass and actually work with the licensors for the benefit of the fans instead of their own pocket books. WHat really frustrates me is I have gone out to dinner with some of the people who work for HG and they are really super nice, so I don't get why the company itself is dogshit.

    Actually they do. They need the permission of Studio Nue.

    if the live action movie is successful, they MAY have the budget to release a BD macross.

    The Gundam BDs are not only a great example of remastering from film, but also of digital noise reduction done properly. They are just so clean that I still can't believe it.
    Nice people put up with shit from upstairs.
    They don't, actually. They would likely need permission to use the existing Japanese remasters, sure, since those are new and haven't been sold to HG. But HG has an indefinite license through Tatsunoko to publish and merchandise the original footage from the show, which they were given on film. The remastered Macross DVDs from Animeigo and ADV were made from reels that Harmony Gold has in their archives. There's no limitation on what resolution they can use when scanning the film.

    They'd need Nue's permission to make new footage using the same designs, but that's never going to happen in a million years.

    I was using Gundam as an example since that show is also anime and from the 80s.

    Plus, they look phenomenal.

    Yeah, I kind of misread your post. I thought you said they are NOT a great example. I missed the ONLY.

    I saw Macross BD and I could not believe how much better the quality was, but I will never hold out getting Macross on BD as long as HG still exists.
