Totally not in that argument. I loved Transformers the Movie (animated) and the shows growing up. Not a fan so much now but Tech/Macross? Everytime I see an old episode, just takes me back.
I never cared much for 'Tech or Macross....I guess it's because I am not really that into Anime....and it always had that feel about it.
The closest to anime I get is Starblazers (Space Battleship Yamato) and Battle of the Planets (been renamed several times)
Transformers cartoon back in the 80s was not really that "Anime-ish". I remember fondly the days watching it...and seeing the commercials for the movie...It's the only movie I demanded to be taken to. I was 11ish at the time. I remember my mother being shocked when she heard the 2 curse words.
