QUOTE (http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2014-03-26/macross-science-fiction-anime-franchise-gets-new-tv-series)
The Kanto-area rerun of the Macross Frontier television anime ended on Wednesday with a teaser that a new Macross television series is launching. The announcement provided no further details on the new project in the 32-year-old science-fiction franchise.

The franchise began in 1982 with The Super Dimension Fortress Macross, a television anime series with themes of space warfare, a love triangle, and transforming fighter planes. It spawned two more television series (Macross 7 and Macross Frontier), several theatrical films (starting with The Super Dimension Fortress Macross: Do You Remember Love?), and several video series (including Macross II, Macross Plus, Macross Dynamite 7, and Macross Zero).

Sounds interesting. Will await more news and post here as it comes.

I can only hope for a proper adaptation of Macross Flashback 2012. A series that fills the void between the music video and Macross Plus.

I'd just plain love that.

I feel like I'm repeating myself here...in fact, I have a SUPER strong sense of deja vu... but I'll say it anyway.

If we did, it would have been posted. laugh2.gif

So the most recent news I read about the new Macross show was that it has a working title Macross Delta. Have any of you guys heard anything else about it?

Negs, though as an interesting coincidence I have a friend named Delta who's a huge Macross fan (and likely where I would hear any news about it had I heard anything).

There was an audition advertised for a program with the working title of Macross Delta back in December of last year. No news has surfaced since then.

The informative website is still active.

I am surprised there hasn't been more news, isn't this new project supposed to be celebrating another Macross anniversary?

Hrmm, kind of weird... looks like Kawamori's trying to cash in on the iM@S / LL! phenom; while at the same time trying to appeal to fujoshi with those overly uniform-clad male pilots.

Thanks for the update Bozz, but yeah, I definitely concur on the chara-designs~

...needs more Roy Focker. derp.gif

You...do realize that Kawamori was the one behind AKB0048, right?

I think he's referring to the animated series (AKB0048) rather than the group that the series was based on (AKB48)...

Yeah, I made that realization shortly after I posted my comment, hahaha. XD

I still liked the animation a lot though, so I've gotten my hopes up for Delta now. The male pilots aren't to my tastes per se; but if I squint really hard I can just pretend I'm looking at Lelouch clones! laugh.gif

Mixed on the characters. I'm glad the YF-19 design is getting more love with the VF-31. The Sv-262 reminds me of the Saab Draken. cool.gif

So after been completely turned off by that image of the Valkyria pilots of this series; I finally watched the trailer.

The impression I came away with after watching it is that it doesn't seem that bad, although it doesn't say much about the story, but at the same time I didn't come away from it being as excited and with high expectations as I was with Frontier and Zero.

I did think it was pretty cool that they showed some mecha that those giants in the original Macross usd to pilot, the one that looks like ball with legs, not sure if that was a flashback, nevertheless a cool inclusion.

I am still not really fond of the look of the pilots, although the main character (judging by him being the only male character that appears more than once in the trailer) looks a bit better IMHO.

I'll give the series a shot when it comes out, I am hoping that the story and characters are interesting. Although I don't have high hopes for this, I have a feeling I'll like it a whole lot more than Macross 7 (only Macross series I haven't watch in full besides the Macross 2 movie).

So there was a post over at ANN today showcasing the female idols of this series:

http://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2015-...le-idols/.96509

I'm still not overly fond of some of the character designs, but I'll wait to see if the series turns out good as I've watched series where I hated the character designs and artwork (the original Kanon TV series is one of them) but ended up liking it in the end.

I was just watching the Macross F False Songstress movie today. The animation is still good even 6 years later, the music is just amazing. I hope this new series will live up to the standards set by Macross F.

We'll see. Sensation! mentioned that it's the third season of AKB0048, and I loved AKB0048 so I'm cool with that.

Too bad about the copyright mess preventing livestreaming. Kawamori really wants to stream Delta like Bandai does with Gundam, but the mess involving Harmony Gold has ruined that plan. Fascinating read over on Forbes:

It's a shame, has anyone tried legal actions with regards to Harmony Gold's grip on Macross outside of Japan?

Only Big West could potentially do that and so far they haven't.

That sucks, since there seems to be little chance of any future Macross games coming out here because of HG's hold of the property in the West.

New Macross Delta stuff:

The second PV is kinda short (15 seconds), but the narrator sounds familiar.

Plus it looks like there are some brief profiles of the characters in Macross Delta (still not a fan of the pretty boy pilots):

I am a little surprised after all this talk about the Delta premier nobody has commented their thoughts of the preview episode (not calling it exactly 1st episode since the final 1st episode version will be a few scenes or order different like the Frontier Premier episode to final 1st episode but for the most part all the same.)

Aside from still having to wait until spring for the official premier, the episode itself is exactly what I expected to see when the series was announced, an idol group that fight with the mecha side by side, and the same action adrenaline I'd expect in a macross series. If anything that is surprising is the character designs of the bishonen group from the kingdom of wind in the series.

Since I've always been a Macross fan for as long as I can remember I am still just as excited to see the next episode.
