Sorry for the iPhone quality pics ^^;
The Macross Frontier-themed ‘Chojiku Nyan Nyan Cafe & Bar‘ at CHARACRO in Ikebukuro is set to open this Sunday, July 27.
However, a special pre-opening event was held on July 24 for approx. 40 lucky fans. Movies were prohibited, but I managed to get a couple of pics. More detailed impressions coming soon.
Well, technically it comes out tomorrow, however a few people have gotten their box sets a day early.
The Macross Frontier ‘Shudisuta’ movie bluray boxset WITH ENGLISH SUBTITLES has been discounted by 44% at both AmiAmi and Amazon Japan. The boxset includes both THE FALSE SONGSTRESS and THE WINGS OF FAREWELL, an extras disc, and two large art books. If you haven’t picked a copy up yet there’s no better way to support the franchise and get a great deal at the same time!
Many thanks to forum veteran UN Spacy for the heads up.
