It has often been said that the original broadcast of the ground-breaking series Robotech was a key factor leading to the current interest in Japanese animation. In the 15 years since its initial airing, Robotech has remained one of the most critically acclaimed high-watermarks for animated science fiction storytelling. Filled with drama, excitement and high adventure, the serialized, multi-generational Robotech is just as stunning today as it was when it first hit the airwaves.
This third volume in The Robotech Legacy Collection contains episodes 25 through 36 of Robotech as well as an exclusive "bonus" disc containing the original feature-length production Robotech II: The Sentinels, with running audio commentary by series creator Carl Macek; a short video created to promote the 65-episode original Robotech II: The Sentinels television series; behind the scenes animation art from The Sentinels, and more.
