  2. *Singing: Ding dong the witch is dead! Which old witch? The Carl Macek witch!* But you’re right… If it wern’t for old Carl here, the anime industry would still be just as dead without him! RIP Bandai! So, bye bye Carl! I hope you enjoy your stay in hell! All hail lord Shoji Kawamori! Long live Macross! Death to Harmony Gold! Robotech fans should kill themselves for the love of lord Shoji Kawamori!
