After visiting my dad at the hospital yesterday, I dropped by to the nearest shopping mall, since it was only about 1 KM from my dad’s house. Fixed my Nike sneakers, had a very late dinner and was just looking around; window shopping.
Until I reached this particular shop and it sells quite a list of anime.
Saw that they have Robotech and it was quite cheap. Didn’t think twice and I got myself the complete set of the Robotech TV Series, plus one of the movie titled Robotech : The Shadow Chronicles. Actually, the shop only got these two at that time, I might buy all if they have them 🙂
I was looking for Robotech for quite a while but the Anime shop near my place was selling at a much higher price. Wanted to wait for a SALE, but then I found this place. I could have gotten myself the pirated version but it was dubbed in Mandarin 😛 I would download it if was in Japanese with English sub but not Mandarin.
So, when the shop told me that it has the complete set, episodes 1-85 and for a price of less than 25, I didn’t think twice and even asked them to add the movie.
Talk about impulse shopping!
As what I’ve mentioned in another post, I read American comics from Marvel and DC. None from the Manga type but I watch Anime, funny isn’t it. Maybe I should buy a few Manga titles after this. Anyway, for Anime, most of my favorites are the mecha type like Robotech and Gundam.
Robotech was shown on TV when I was a kid, and I was an avid follower of that series. Somehow, I can’t remember exactly why I was not able to watch every episode and also didn’t actually finish watching it. Maybe it was swimming class. Only through my friends, I knew how it ended. One thing I remembered was telling myself to get it if it is available when I got the money.
When I started working, Anime was not as popular as is now and it was also difficult to find any Anime titles at an ordinary video shop. Even if I could, it was very expensive and that stop me from getting. That was almost 20 years ago.
I was actually excited the minute I walk out from the shop with Robotech on my hand. Got any dream come true lately. Mind sharing it?
Now that I got the full series, the next target would be the action figure.
