At least the Korean animators will finally find some steady work.

YES.

But wait................a sequel?? That means another movie??

Nuts, i was hoping for a series.


Oh well. At least this time they got a bigger budget and better funding(from funimation i think). The first Shadow chronicles movie's budget was low and HG practically funded it themselves.

I'm not sure the legal battle between Tatsunoko and Big West would allow for
another series.

I'd rather Robotech continue as DVD movies than a TV series, but maybe if the second DVD does as well as the first that might put Harmony Gold in a better position to go forward with a TV series.

Tommy Yune and his staff were probably sitting on pins and needles to see how well The Shadow Chronicles sold, so once it reached a point where it was now considered commercially viable, it did take nuthin' but a word to start work on the sequel since I think the hardest part was simply getting everything started in the first place...

No, "sequel" means something that comes after the first. Format is not inferred by the word.

I believe Tommy was talking about a series, but I didn't want to state that when I wasn't certain.

Indeed, it could be anything from a movie to a series to even a novel for all we know.

Though hopefully they'll take into account actual opinion and fix some of the problems. Shadow Chronicles succeeded mostly through a starved fanbase, not so much on it's own 'merits[large breasted women, shoddyand abundant cg work, weak development....]'. If they realise this (which they probably won't), it might be worthwhile.
