    I'm surprised they're not just trying to sue the fans to get the money.

    Fuck Harmony Gold! Someone needs to start a kickstarter project to hire lawyers to take their licensing rights away.

    At least it's not Robotech 3000.

    TBH, if I had the money, I'd contribute for the sole purpose of getting that "Associate Producer" title. I think it would help with certain things regarding promoting my friend's restaurant + the 2 belly dancers I know, never mind getting my foot in the Hollywood door if my friend from The Simpsons can land some work for me.

    Of course, if they don't get the project done, it'd be a huge waste of BAAAAAAANK.

    This isn't even for a series, it's just for the pilot of a theoretical series. I can't imagine this reaching their goal. I'll give them this, it's at least an attempt to do something with their licensing. One rather shitty attempt, but it's more than what they've been doing.

    Robotech is the one thing that I would most definitely buy a foreign copy of if I ever got into it.

    You mean, you'd get the original Macross, Southern Cross, and Genesis Climber Mospeada series?

    I'm not familiar enough with the franchise to know the names, but yeah, I guess. That said, I've never really had much interest in it, yet, and there are other animes that I would get into first.

    Hahaha fuck no. They'd keep shambling on the way they have been for the past like 10 years. I'm pretty sure at this point the Harmony Gold offices consist of one leased room with a guy at a collapsible card table wearing a white tshirt with "Protoculture" scrawled on it poorly with black marker, spending his entire days filling out ill-thought legal suits.
