Differences between Robotech and Macross: Am I missing out?
So here's a bit of a preface: Robotech came out around the time I was born, and I don't remember much of it. However I avidly watched the Macross portion of it when it was aired on Cartoon Network some years back, and I still have very fond memories of it. I even read the novelizations. However, a few years back I learned how Robotech was pieced together from three unrelated series and such. I didn't really think much of it, but almost every person I've met swears up and down that it (SDF Macross) was ruined when it became Robotech. I've been meaning to get Robotech on DVD, but I've been thinking maybe I should get the Macross english dub that was released a while back, what with everyone saying it's so much better.
So, my question to you, H/A: Is Robotech really that bad compared to the original? Has Harmony Gold really changed it that much? Enough to warrant spending almost $140 for Macross as opposed to $60ish for Robotech?
