- Your random Shadow Chronicles screen grab for the day: Is that a faraway look in Scott Bernard's eyes, or is he just sleepy?
- As The Masters pointed out yesterday, Harmony Gold's Kevin McKeever has been working on a secret thing, and Steve Yun is tirelessly working to put the thing on Robotech.com. I guess we'll see what it is when Steve's done.
- AnimeNewsNetwork reports that AIC is celebrating the 23rd anniversary of Megazone 23 (the first part of which was adapted into Robotech The Movie: The Untold Story) with a big live event on May 13 in Tokyo. The part of it that those of us here on this side of the Pacific can appreciate is the fact that they're also cranking out a new artbook this month, the Megazone 23 Maneuver Book, and a new video game for the PlayStation 3 this summer. More details here at ANN or if you can read Japanese you can go straight to the source.
Wow, a reason to buy a PS3. Hadn't seen one of those yet.

- wwwmwww tracked down, scanned, and posted to Macross World's forums a text-heavy Mospeada doujinshi (fan publication). Lots of Ride Armor/Cyclone art in among the pages upon pages of Japanese text. Also a lot of neat Mospeada pics further down in the thread from magazines contemporary with the show's release. Nifty, nifty, nifty ...
