But seriously, check out Haruhi Suzumiya if you are looking for a great watch! Also you might want to start the list off with a re-watch of Ghost in the Shell the English dub for the movie is not as good as the other's that I have listed, but it will help you move into Stand Alone Complex, which is much better.
Sometimes, I just… Big. Robots. Mecha. Drool! I think it was because my brother and I got into anime back when much of what was available here was just that.
Now my tastes have widened and I see anime for what it really is. A format.
But there is still a place in me that enjoys… Big. Robots.
And so, Robotech will always have a place on my shelf even if I don't watch it that much.
The interesting thing is that it is basically the english dub of Super Dimension Fortress Macross – I firmly believe the Macek dub is better than the original Japanese track in just about every way possible. (Put down those torches!)
Only the original series, and from that I might point out, the very first 36 eps, are all really well done.
Some reasoning before I get attacked by rabid Macek haters.
What you will notice in the original is that different voice actors were used for the same character in the Japanese track – really throws you in some flashback eps.
Not just that, but there are some great original songs in the english version. But Gloval and some of the other characters feel like they have more depth in the english dub which makes it all the more rewarding.
