It's an exciting time to be a Macross fan!

2022 is the Macross franchise's 40th Anniversary, and with the roadblocks to international distribution torn down earlier this year we're starting to see the first few global releases and plans for the franchise's worldwide presence going forward. The Macross Galactic Launch Ceremony 2021 event last month had several announcements about releases in the near future. Since it hasn't been posted here yet, I figured I'd share a few highlights.


Macross soundtracks on Streaming
Starting November 21st, music from the soundtracks of Macross II: Lovers Again, Macross Plus, Macross Seven, Macross Zero, Macross Frontier, Macross Delta and other titles are now available worldwide on most popular streaming services including iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon Music Unlimited, and YouTube Music (fmrly. Google Play Music).


Bandai DX Chogokin Toys to be released worldwide
Bandai/Tamashii Nations will be releasing its first global DX Chogokin Macross toys starting in April 2022 with a special commemorative "Worldwide" edition.

https://www.tamashiinations.com/special/wwmacross2021/

The first release, planned for April 2022, is a Worldwide Anniversary edition of the VF-25F Messiah from Macross Frontier.


Fathom Events limited engagement: Macross Plus MOVIE Edition
https://www.fathomevents.com/events/mac ... ie-edition

In partnership with Fathom Events, there is going to be a limited theatrical showing of Macross Plus: the Movie in theaters around the US on December 14th!

Nothing yet. Amazon has been messing about with the availability of some books for international shipping, which may be an early sign that licensing is being worked out for some of them.

It's unconfirmed, but some folks did some digging around on the Atom Films website and there are some tantalizing hints we may be getting a theatrical release of DYRL.

Recently announced, the Macross 40th Anniversary Super Dimension Collaboration album Deculture!! Mixture!!!!! will be released on April 6th.

Deculture!! Mixture!!!!! is a cover album featuring Macross Frontier songstresses May'n (Sheryl Nome) and Megumi Nakajima covering five songs by Macross Delta idol group Walkure, and the five members of Walkure - JUNNA (Mikumo), Kiyono Yasuno (Kaname), Nozomi Nishida (Makina), Nao Toyoma (Reina), and Minori Suzuki (Freya) - covering five songs from Macross Frontier. Three of each set of five songs were chosen from last summer's Super Dimension Collaboration Song Election!!!!!!! poll, with the other two being the most iconic songs of their respective shows. The album also includes a new arrangement of the iconic song "Do You Remember Love?" performed by all seven vocalists.

May'n and Megumi will be covering:
  • Forbidden Borderline
  • Our Battlefield
  • Ruin of a Pure Heart
  • Giraffe Blues (May'n solo)
  • Uncertainty ☆ COSMIC MOVEMENT (Megumi solo)

Walkure will be covering:
  • Wings of Goodbye ~ End of the Triangle
  • Lion
  • Afterschool Overflow
  • Universal Bunny
  • Northern Cross

The album is already available for preorder in regular and limited editions on several Japanese direct-sale sites.

Yeah, that's the big one we're all waiting for... kind of expecting an answer to that one in summer or early fall, since the actual 40th Anniversary is October 3rd.

That's good to hear. Will be nice to get some legal stuff. After Frontier came out, and I liked it so much, I went looking for a DVD set with english sub. The set I got, I think would be called a bot leg copy, even though I got it off of Amazon, IIRR. The box and the DVD's looked nice, but the video quality was a little off. So in the end, I don't know. So I'm so looking forward to the dubs. I don't like subs, always have to pause the video to read the subs, or have to rewind when I don't read fast enough, plus, I'm not "looking" at the picture, but if its the only thing available... So if dubs are available, its dubs every time for me.

Yeah, it really will... the Macross Delta Japanese editions have official English subs, but apart from one very rare Macross Frontier limited edition they were the first to do an end-run around Harmony Gold's attempt to block Macross imports.

It'd be even nicer if the western releases translate the extensive liner notes that accompany the Japanese editions. Less work for me that way.

Very safe bet you have a bootleg... there was only one Frontier box set that had official English subs, and it was a limited edition from about five years after the series aired that cost like $400.

All things considered, I'm inclined to wonder if the dubs will be on a significant delay or left out entirely... most new streaming anime doesn't bother to dub shows before release, and dubs tend to end up losing a lot of important context and such when there isn't a direct English translation of certain terms. It's especially bad in humorour moments, since there are several types of jokes that just don't translate at all.

The first DVD and Blu-ray release of Macross Delta: Absolute Live!!!!!! has been announced for September 28th.

It's a Japan release, presumably with an international release to follow later, but the JDM release does have official English subtitles the same as the previous releases for the TV series and Passionate Walkure.

My enthusiasm depends on whether Basra actually explodes in this; I'd pay money to see him spontaneously combust, ala Spinal Tap.

I can confirm that Yoshiki Fukuyama does not, in fact, combust or explode at any point during the concert.

False advertising then. I was hoping at the very least to see a gel-fueled torch imitation involving his ridiculous upswept hair.
