Lionsgate Home Entertainment has a refreshing midsummer treat in store for anime fans with the July 23 release of the Robotech: 2-Movie Collection DVD set (presented under license from A+E Networks Consumer Products). The release includes the never-before-seen feature Love Live Alive as well as the fan favorite hit film The Shadow Chronicles.
The celebrated Robotech saga continues in the new animated adventure Love Live Alive, which takes place after the events of Robotech: The New Generation (available in Lionsgate’s Robotech: The Complete Series set). This installment follows Lieutenant Lance “Lancer” Belmont as he recounts his journey–from before his first encounter with Scott Bernard to the aftermath of Admiral Rick Hunter’s expedition to liberate Earth from the mysterious Invid race. The Shadow Chronicles continues the tale of the epic battle as Scott Bernard must once again face his tragic past as he joins the returning Robotech Expedition against new mechanized foes: the Haydonites.
