Not as good as Macross Saga

"While the Robotech story is original, full of action, and human emotion; the second act was lacking many of the things that made the first one so irresistable. There is no hint of intelligence until well towards the end of the story and it only makes the involvement of the famous "protoculture" all the more confusing. Despite these problems, I did enjoy this era in the robotech story, but it sure didn't have the feel of a real military background that I found so appealing in its first act."
Good But not to Good!!

"I have been hooked on Robotech since it came on Sci-Fi I I'm 20 now so it's not been long, I watched teh Macross Saga and Masters Saga on Cartoon Network and got the New Gen. from here. But I must say this, Macross and the New Gen. have great story lines while the Masters falls somewhat short of greatness.Dana Sterling is the main Character, buring the whole things she show little in leadership skills and acts more like a child. Though in the books it's differenet ( hard to find but worth the trouble of getting) I find myself comparing the show to the books, while the Macross show and book runs very well as one the Masters is isn't. Dana in the books is more of a leader with a Rebal edage. Then a kid with a hoovertank.I really want to list the problems with this dvd,
1. Characters are block and dull nothing really great about them
2. The Saga has more battles and talking about battles than anything else which makes it dull (but atleast they are good fights)
3. To much inforamtion is put on the viewer and sometimes viewer has to watch an ep. a few times to get it all.
4. In Macross and New. Gen alot of human emoations are put into the show to get the viewer to really get into the show, but the Masters has so little that is dry and fells almost bland. All though the show has it problems it is still key to the Robotech Saga anyway you look at it. It answers questions about Robotech, about the Masters and yes even the awful and hated Invid. It also answer that bigest question people ask when they first geting to the Macross Saga. "What Happiend to Rick, and Lisa and the others?"With that I will leave it as this Robotech Master is key to the story no matter how bad you hate it or love it. It is a must see even with it's problems it is still good and enjoyable just leaves that feeling of emptiness after you finish watching it. But for those of you who are looking at this and thinking about buying it I would get it hands down and with out second thought. Just remember to get Macross and New Gen. along with it and you will have yourself a good ol' time and lot of sleepless nights."
I Love it!

"I am a big Robotech fan. i like it very much,and this part 2 is the best part in robotech i think. although haven't so many heroes, but it is so profound and has so much complexity of characters just like Dana,Zor,also Robotech Masters. this part is the core of Robotech, it is mysterious, solemn and stirring. it make me to see that the real meaning of Robotch is not only anti-war, but the forever principle between universe and being. only this part can show that. if you can't understand this part, you can't understand the whole Robotech."
