Robotech Kicks Off 25th Anniversary Celebration at Animation On Display
Robotech, “a sweeping science-fiction anime epic of humans defending their homeworld against alien domination,” is celebrating its 25th anniversary with a tour of various anime conventions across the United States. The celebration will all start in San Francisco this January 30-31, 2010, at Animation On Display (AOD), San Francisco’s very own Japanese anime and cartoon convention!
Three key figures behind Robotech will be appearing at AOD:
Carl Macek – the “creator”/producer of Robotech
Tony Oliver – the voice actor of Rick Hunter, the hero and main character
Tommy Yune – Creative Director for the show
Carl, Tommy, and Tony join voice actors Kyle Hebert, David Vincent, and Cristina Vee; “You are a pirate”/Happy Tree Friends writer Ken Pontac; and web comic artists Ian McConville, Matt Boyd (MacHall/Three Panel Soul), and PMBQ (Unemployed Pandas), all as guests of honor at this year’s AOD.
