Well, I saw robotech when it originally aired in the US, but I was 5 or 6 at
the time. Around 92 or 93 I had a run-in with gundam, and knew a little bit
about it before I saw robotech again, or Macross II. Don't know if that
counts or not, but I liked Gundam more than Macross at the time, and still
do. (Plus was great, but 7, well, I don't like it. I'll put it that way.)
