A week after the launch of its crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter, Harmony Gold Productions’ new project “Robotech Academy” has raised over $100,000 from close to 1,700 backers. The entertainment company started the campaign to seek $500,000 to bring the animated series to television.In 1985, the animated series known as “Robotech” hit the airwaves in the U.S. and became an overnight sensation. Combining fast-paced giant robot action with some genuinely mature drama, it was a different kind of show for many children who were tired of the usual cartoons. For many fans, it was their first exposure to Japanese animation, and is often credited with starting the anime industry in the U.S.Carl Macek, the producer of “Robotech,” was recently working with Harmony Gold on “Robotech: Academy.” The new series is set in the Robotech universe and follows several new cadets in their adventures around the universe.
