The Japanese anime distributor Bandai Visual has announced that it shipped 45,000 Blu-ray Discs and 55,000 DVDs for the first volume of the Macross Frontier science-fiction anime series on Friday. That marks the highest Blu-ray Disc pressing among all Bandai Entertainment releases, including the Cowboy Bebop and Ghost in the Shell movies. It is also the first television anime series to ship simultaneously on both disc formats in Japan. The series takes place 50 years after the first Macross television series and revolves around a rookie pilot, the galaxy's latest pop idol, and an aspiring singer. The first issue of the biweekly Macross Chronicle magazine also shipped this Thursday.
