Stamp Set Celebrates Macross' Upcoming Orchestral Concert
posted on by Jennifer Sherman
In honor of the The Super Dimension Fortress Macross franchise's orchestral concert that will mark its 35th anniversary, the Japan Post's online shop will offer a special framed stamp set beginning on September 1.
The set will include one framed sheet of ten stamps, four A4-size clear files, and an original mat. The set will retail for 3,800 yen (about US$35).
The "Macross 35 Shūnen x Haneda Kentarō 10th Memorial 'Chōjikū Kangengaku' remember Healthy Wings Orchestra" (Macross 35th Anniversary x Kentarō Haneda 10th Memorial 'Super Dimension Orchestral Music' remember Healthy Wings Orchestra) concert will be held at the Tokyo International Forum on September 17. The concert also marks the 10th anniversary of the death of composer Kentarō Haneda.
Japan Post also released special Ranma 1/2, Super Mario, and Lupin III stamp sets earlier this year. Post offices in Japan have previously offered stamp sets inspired by anime such as Bungo Stray Dogs, Touken Ranbu: Hanamaru, Sword Art Online the Movie: Ordinal Scale, and Kuroshitsuji: Book of the Atlantic.
