R.I.P. Carl Macek

There are a handful of key figures who are responsible for the popularity of anime in the Western world--Carl Macek was one of them--he passed away last month.

Most notably, Carl was responsible for combining three unrelated series into one saga, and introducing them to America under the title Robotech. For an entire generation of nerds, including myself, this was our introduction to anime.

Thanks for everything, Carl!
