A time ago, I took the time to get you readers excited for 2017 by revealing a number of female-led anime coming out in the winter anime season of the year, which already started. Hopefully, you are finding what you anticipated to see. Well, enough of anime. It is time to turn our attention to American science-fiction. No year of entertainment is ever exciting without anything to offer from one of the greatest genres in all media. This year however, the fun begins in February, thus my reason for not starting this a few weeks ago. So without further ado, I reveal in what will be my final column for ENR, 12 things from American sci-fi that are bound to make 2017 super for all you genre fans out there. So buckle up and enjoy the ride. Engage! Read more...

Days ago, comic book publisher Titan Comics announced that it will be launching a new comic book series based on Robotech sometime in early 2017. As a fan of the giant robot trope in both comics and screen productions, I got super excited as it meant not only more Robotech story content despite the absence of detail on what the series will be about, but also another giant robot-themed sci-fi epic to look forward to reading in comic print after reading the six-issue comic book miniseries Voltron: From the Ashes, which like the upcoming comic book series, is based on an American sci-fi television series that is in turn a re-edit and re-dub of multiple unrelated anime series put together.

SDF-1 Macross the Transforming ShipI first knew of Macross since the late 1990s when Canadian television network Teletoon aired the 1994 4-part made-for-video miniseries Macross Plus, and the thing about that miniseries that attracted me most was of course the transforming fighter craft featured (especially the anime's hero's vehicle YF-19 and his rival's craft YF-21). "What is Macross" you may ask? Basically, it is a currently running sci-fi franchise owned and created by Studio Nue that combines complex space wars (where there's no real definition of who's good and who's bad) with giant transforming starships (including the SDF-1 Macross and its Macross successors), love triangles, and especially human-created transforming fighter craft called "variable fighters".

SG #1Since the release of the hit 2013 American live-action film Pacific Rim, there appears to have been an increase in the North America craving for more science-fiction works that feature heroes controlling giant robots.  From the inside in the same manner a person controls a car, train, or plain from the inside. Unfortunately so far, little exposure of this science-fiction theme has occurred in works of fiction from the west, though an animated Pacific Rim series is currently in the works.  I am sure that some of you readers out there who are fans of the 1985 American animated sci-fi series Robotech (actually a redub and rewrite of three unrelated 1980s Japanese animated television series)  have already heard the sad news about the series’ owner Harmony Gold USA aborting the Kickstarter campaign meant to raise funds for the production of the pilot of the planned Robotech series Robotech Academy.   Read more...

800px-Roku_XDS_with_RemoteThe cord-cutting generation has many streaming services and devices to choose from. While each streaming box has its own particular feature set, the main consideration when selecting the proper device is the content available. The Roku shares 37 percent of the streaming media player market, while Apple TV has a 24 percent chunk, according to Park Associates. However, the installation base doesn't matter as much as the channels, apps and services available to each product. This is particularly true when it comes to niche entertainment, such as anime and live action comic movies. While Netflix, Hulu and Crunchyroll are shared between these devices, the Roku ends up being the winner in the anime and comic department for several reasons.   Read more...

1243789110950My last venture into Imported Cape TV about the cartoons I loved as a kid and still do resulted in some serious discussions. Mainly it was about where to go after my three favorites and what everybody else watched when they were kids. Stephane Trahan my buddy from Facebook site:  Comics, Sci-Fi, Tech and More,  kind of helped me make the decision in a round about way by confirming that he liked the robots space adventures too. There is a snag there though, because there are so many that were so very good. I broke it down to the three I watched, or here is one for you "taped" with the use of a VCR (yeah VCR!). So without more useless flogging here is the three Robot, Space, Battle Imports of  Cape TV! Read more...
