My good friend Derick gives Robotech: The Shadow Chronicles
a "B." If I remember his remarks right, very good animation throughout, mostly good voice acting -- a few jokes fall flat, a few weird dialogue readings, IIRC, but not bad overall -- and an excellent score, so good that afterwards he asked when he could buy the soundtrack CD. He did note that it felt long, kind of the way that Megazone 23 Part 1
feels long. When you bear in mind that the events of Megazone 23 Part 1
were supposed to be thirteen episodes of a TV anime, and The Shadow Chronicles
project began with the desire to create a new ROBOTECH TV series, well ... that does make sense.
Apologies if I misquoted him anywhere; it's not like I was taking notes.
