posted on by Kyle Hallmark
Amazon is currently listing the first Blu-ray Disc and DVD volume of the Macross Delta television anime with an option for English subtitles. The second through ninth volumes of the home video release are also listed on Amazon, but they do not currently list English subtitles.
The limited edition of the first Blu-ray Disc and DVD volume will go on sale on July 22 for 7,344 yen (about US$66) and will contain the first three episodes. The volume will include the "Mission 0.89" version of the first episode that aired last year, as well as an exclusive "Mission 01+" version. The volume will also include a flash anime with chibi characters, audio commentary featuring the anime's staff and cast, a 40-page special booklet, an art box and inner jacket with illustrations by Macross Delta character designer Majiro, and a sleeve case with illustrations by "Macross visual artist" Hidetaka Tenjin.
Additionally, the official website of Bandai Visual is listing a set for the nine volumes of the home video release. The set will go on sale on July 22 for 70,200 yen (US$630) with the special limited edition of the first volume only (the special limited editions of the other eight volumes will ship on their respective release dates) and will include a 1/72 scale plastic model. The specs listing for the set mentions English subtitles, but doesn't specify if each volume will have English subtitles.
The anime premiered on Sunday on the Tokyo MX channel.
