April 12, 2010

via AICN I see that there’s a Voltron movie planned, and continued rumblings about Robotech: MTV Splash Page notes that “The Losers” director Sylvain White has expressed interest in helming an adaptation of the classic “Robotech” animated series. “Well, [‘Robotech’ is] not a project that’s greenlit,” related White during an appearance at last weekend’s WonderCon […]

Gurren Lagann: piercing the heavens with a drill

May 15, 2009

I’ve been watching Gurren Lagann on Cartoon Network’s monday night anime block for the past couple of months, and have been really enjoying it.

The Robotech Ummah

September 10, 2008

According to this caffeinated muslim woman blogger, the Zentraedi from Robotech are meant to be muslim: The Zentraedi are completely segregated – men and women generally seem to be on different ships.

Bridge Bunnies

September 29, 2006

Finally! someone has started a anime blog titled Bridge Bunnies.

April 29, 2006

I just don’t know where to begin when talking about Robotech. I first saw it in college – during final exams week of my first year, in fact. It astounds me that I even passed my exams, let alone maintained a decent GPS, given that I spent all my time that week in the dorm […]
