New Macross Animation Project to Be Produced by Sunrise

Announced after 'SANKYO presents Walküre FINAL LIVE TOUR 2023' concert finale

The final day of the "SANKYO presents Walküre FINAL LIVE TOUR 2023" concerts ended on Sunday with an announcement that a new Macross animation project is launching from the anime studio Sunrise.

Studio Nue began the Macross franchise in 1982 with The Super Dimension Fortress Macross (pictured right), a television anime series featuring the themes of a love triangle, music, and transforming fighter planes. Studio Nue worked with the advertising agency Bigwest and the anime studio Tatsunoko Production as production partners.

The franchise spawned three more television series (Macross 7, Macross Frontier, and Macross Delta), 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). Macross Delta ran from April to September of 2016, after a preview of the first episode in 2015.

The latest animated work in the Macross franchise, the Gekijōban Macross Delta: Zettai LIVE!!!!!! feature film, opened in Japan in October 2021 alongside the "Gekijō Tanpen Macross Frontier Toki no Meikyū" (Macross Frontier Film Short: Labyrinth of Time) film short.

Bigwest, Studio Nue, and Harmony Gold USA announced in April 2021 that the companies agreed to allow the immediate distribution of most Macross television sequels and films globally. The companies agreed to cooperate on the distribution of future Macross and Robotech projects.
