Fans of the Robotech Series will be thrilled to learn that the story continues.  This month the release of a special two movie DVD will include the The Shadow Chronicles and a brand new feature, Love Live Alive. 

The movies are currently available for pre-order and will be on shelves July 23. Thanks to Lionsgate Home Entertainment (under license from A+E Networks Consumer Products) provides a bridge to connect my generation to this one.

Start with the The Shadow Chronicles.  The tale is set in the future and the Earth is at war with hostile alien forces.  There are brave soldiers who fight to restore peace to humanity.  The story continues with more action and adventure with new story, Love Live Alive.  

The movies incorporate some of the elements of  the Robotech television programs. This will help the viewer who has not seen any episodes. They get the basic gist of the story and what has occured in the gap of time from the first movie to the second.  If you are new to Robotech and enjoy the DVDs, I am happy to let you know that there are many more episodes to enjoy.

Here are the Special Features:
  • Deleted Scenes (w/optional commentary) (9:43)
  • Outtakes (3:10)
  • Animatics (w/optional commentary) (11:24)
  • Featurette: Birth of a Sequel (45:07)
  • Featurette: Score Music Video (8:10)
  • Featurette: Anime Selects (2:17)
  • Featurette: !PoN Anime Podcast (11:14)
  • Featurette: Robotech 3000 (3:25)
  •  Featurette: Robotech 3000 Motion Capture Sequences (0:20)
  • Trailers (5:38)
  • Photo Galleries: Personnel Dossier, Ship Registry, Mecha Database, Prelude to the Shadow Chronicles, Secret Files
  • The Live Love Alive Disc has a Special Photo Gallery
Although this is an unrated film, it is probably best suited for ages 12 and up so if your tweens or teens are into Sci-Fi Anime, pop some corn and enjoy the show!
