The official website of the Macross franchise revealed that "Macross Δ" (pronounced Macross Delta) will be the new Macross television anime's finalized name. It also posted a new key visual for the project. The visual reveals the project's logo, two fighters, and the catch phrase "Gekitsui se yo" (Shoot [it] down).
The project will hold "'Chō Jikū'" Seisaku Happyōkai" ("The Super Dimension" Production Unveiling), a live-streamed event which will reveal more details on the project on October 29 at 12:00 p.m.. Macross franchise creator Shoji Kawamori will appear at the event, which will reveal the main staff, the winner of the audition for the new singer in the anime, and the anime's characters. About 8,000 candidates applied for the singing audition.
Macross Modelers, a new brand that encompasses the different plastic model lines for the franchise, is also launching. The participating companies are Aoshima, Wave, Tomytec, Hasegawa, Bandai, and Max Factory. The catch phrase of the brand is, "Kyōtō Futatabi" (Fight together once more). The website indicates that there will be plastic models for the new anime. Kawamori will appear at a Macross plastic model discussion event at the All Japan Model & Hobby Show on Saturday, and the event will provide more information on the new brand.
The two Macross Frontier films will receive a new Blu-ray release on December 24, followed by January 29 Blu-ray releases of The Super Dimension Fortress Macross: Do You Remember Love?, Macross Plus Movie Edition, and Gekijōban Macross 7: Ginga ga Ore wo Yondeiru! (Macross 7 the Movie: The Galaxy's Calling Me!)
The 33-year-old science-fiction 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).
The last television anime in the Macross franchise was Macross Frontier in 2007. It has been four years since the last major Macross anime, the second Macross Frontier film.
