The latter would get me excited in a way no other Macross project has.

Whether or not it's a compilation deal or a bonafide sequel is still up in the air.

Not if they get that Robotech movie into production before the Contractual deadline the contract wont expire. Let me put it this way, if Harmony Gold makes a Robotech Movie, and the movie is even marginally profitable? Tatsunoko might just see it as more profitable to extend the deadline on Harmony Golds contract for another decade to reap in some profits the Robotech movie will rake in.

The Future of Macross and/or Robotech in the US rests on that movie succeeding or failing.

But wait it gets better.


Harmony Gold still has the 'trademark' for Macross. So it's unresolved if new Macross anime could come into America in 2021 even if they lost the rights to publish and profit from material featuring the macross characters and mechs. Not even mentioning how Tatsunoko owes Harmony Gold $800,000, and with them not having the trademark, they may be forced to re-license Macross to Harmony Gold to avoid having them default on their debt and pay it off. It basically amounts to horrible IP blackmail.

See it from Tatsunokos POV. Theyr'e almost $1 million in debt and there's a chance to renew with Harmony Gold. They're going to have to look at what they think is more financially viable: renewing with Harmony gold, or licensing the series and merchandise on their own (which will be an uphill battle in pretty much every respect so long as Harmony Gold still owns the trademark).

Variables including the issues between Harmony Gold and Tatsunoko, which is part of the reason for the 90s legal shitstorm. Tatsunoko really wants to continue bringing down this ship for the matter of saving face at this point, so far they haven't appeared to have made the obvious connection that a vast majority of fans really want Macross from its original creators and don't care about Robotech.
