      Comments Off on First Trailer Released for Macross Delta TV Anime


The first full trailer for the latest installment in the long-running Super Dimension Fortress Macross franchise, entitled Macross Delta, has been released online, following a promotional event in Japan.

Exact details of the plot have yet to be revealed, but it has been confirmed that franchise mechanical designer Shoji Kawamori will serve as chief director, while the musical element of the show will take the form of idol group Tactical Sound Unit Walküre, perhaps hinting at an influence from Kawamori’s recent work on sci-fi idol series AKB0048. No air date has yet been set, although staff have hinted that an ‘almost complete’ version of the first episode may be shown on New Year’s Eve.

Delta will be the franchise’s first all new series since 2007’s popular Macross Frontier, although ongoing legal wrangles involving ownership of the Macross footage adapted into US series Robotetch make any future official release uncertain.
