Apr. 19th, 2010 @ 08:30 am Carl Macek dies
Current Mood: sadsad
Carl Macek, the guy who single-handedly started most of the anime fandom in the US, died of a heart attack yesterday. Macek is most known for importing Super-Dimensional Fortress Macross, Super-Dimensional Cavalry Southern Cross and Genesis Climber Mospeada and combining them into one single bastardised series called Robotech.

My feelings for Carl and the products of his handiwork are well-documented elsewhere. Suffice to say that we have lost a great producer with lots of vision, without whom the whole US anime scene would be totally different -- if it would have existed at all.
