The New Generation
Robotech III: Not Necessarily the Sentinels was a parody dub by Seishun Shitemasu of the Robotech television series. It included Aim for the Top! Gunbuster, an animated OVA series by Gainax animators Kazuya Tsurumaki and Hideaki Anno, Genesis Climber MOSPEADA: Love Live Alive!, a music video montage follow-up of the original MOSPEADA series, Macross: Do You Remember Love and Macross Flashback 2012. It was meant to be a worthy "sequel" of Robotech: The New Generation, featuring a grown up Annie LaBelle and Lynn Minmei. The two have to pilot a new combining mecha against the Invid, who are now determined to destroy the earth. Various revelations are also made about the fates of the characters since the end of Robotech.
Robotech III premiered at Anime Con, the predecessor to Anime Expo, back in 1991. This history-making convention was attended by the likes of Haruhiko Mikimoto and Yoshiyuki Sadamoto, who had created the characters for Nadia and Wings of Honneamise and would go on to do the same for Evangelion. The response from fans was incredible, and received dozens of requests for tapes.
Origins of Seishun ShitemasuEdit
Seishun Shitemasu was formed in mid-1990 by several San Diego area anime fans, the "bunch of guys with a vcr." From the beginning we have tried to create fun anime redubs which take themselves just seriously enough, with humor and profundity and frivolity and core concept all blended in measure. Seishun Shitemasu (pronounced say-SHOON shteMAHS) originally grew out the stupid realization that Nadia with her Blue Water was not entirely unlike Sheeta with a tan, and, well, things just sort of took off from there. The name is Japanese for "[I'm] living in the springtime of [my] youth," taken from the first Kimagure Orange Road opening credits("Kasuga Kyosuke, ju-gosai... seishun shitemasu!").
