  Well, to start...

  We wouldn't have had Macross, which was incorporated into Harmony
Gold's Robotech series, which in turn helped launch Japanese animation
and manga to new heights of popularity here in the United States,
quickening the pace at which said programs were translated or imported
into U.S. markets. Without it, we would've only known about Speed
Racer, Battle Of The Planets, and Star Blazers, with very few of us
actually being aware of the true origins of such shows.
