China to Make Macross 00, World Facepalms

See the newest anime to come out of China.


    

People complain that in anime we get moe show after moe show with no end in sight. Complain as you will but know this, at least we are not living in China where they get cheap knock off after cheap knock off. The newest show to come out of China is Astro Plane, which is basically Macross with a tad bit of Gundam 00 thrown in to the mix.

They must have come to the conclusion that Macross F and Gundam 00 sold well in Japan, so if we combine them both and add in Communist propaganda, then this will be the next Lord of the Rings, right? Sad to say that even though I’m making fun of it, I still want to watch this; the unfortunate drawback to being a mecha fanboy.

Looks like a mix between Gundam SEED Destiny and 00. And a crappy one at that. I'd rather eat seaweed {Which I'm extremely allergic to} Than watch this.

IT WILL BE, China, umm a land where much flow of free ideas is censored, this will be cheap rip offs of many Gundam series, including a myriads of lame dialouge.   I am sorry to say the Chinese have been known to rip off western and Japanese animation many times, plus since the Chinese animation industry is relatively new to the anime world, they won't create a good plot, or even good characters. That is why we all face palm.

I'd like to see some good old fashioned anime-style Chinese communist propaganda.  It's been a long time since The Adventures of Little Mao and the Oppressive Bourgeois Proletariat.
