New Macross Delta Film's Title Revealed With 6th Singer Teased
The members of the idol group Walküre annnounced on the second day of the "Macross Crossover Live 2019" concerts that the title of the new Macross Delta film is Gekijōban Macross Delta: Zettai LIVE!!!!!! (Macross Delta the Movie: Absolute Live!!!!!!) The Walküre members noted that there are six exclamation points in the title when there are only five members, and they half-jokingly asked the creator and director Shoji Kawamori for the reason. Kawamori teased that there will be a sixth performer.
The Shoji Kawamori Expo opened on Friday, and the end of the exhibition revealed a story teaser for the new film:
Walküre and Delta Flight used music to save people from the Vár Syndrome, a previously unknown disease that made humans and others go berserk. However, they find themselves facing a new threat…
Shoji Kawamori stated at the "Flying Dog 10th Anniversary Live 'Inu Fes'" event in February that he is aiming to release the new Macross Delta anime film in 2020. However, the Shoji Kawamori Expo listed the film in "20XX."
The "Walküre Senjō no Premium Live Event at Toyosu Pit" had announced the new film in September and described the film as "entirely new" — as opposed to last year's Macross Delta the Movie: Passionate Walkūre (Gekijō-ban Macross Delta: Gekijō no Walkūre), which compiled earlier television anime footage with some new sequences.
The 26-episode Macross Delta television anime series ran from April to September 2016, after a preview of the first episode in 2015. Gekijō-ban Macross Delta: Gekijō no Walkūre opened in Japan in February 2018.
