I don't know if this has been reported before, but here it goes. Kadokawa Comics A is publishing a new Macross Plus manga (in the same vein of Macross: The First) called Macross Plus: Tac Name. It takes on the love triangle of the OVA from a different perspective, including Myung's, Guld's and Isamu's friendship before the events of the anime, as well as a retelling of Macross Plus. The art is by Naoki Moriya. Price is ¥609. Is available since February the 10th...

It's okay, I beat you both over in the "SDF on Bluray" thread. And if I'd had actual Famitsu scans, it would've gotten a dedicated thread, since it seems thread-worthy but I don't fully trust random posts on gaming forums.

Macross Content:

No Macross the Ride content. Bummer. :(

Dunno if this qualifies as news, but some limited-edition MF artwork (mostly genga reproductions; A4-size, all for 6000yen apiece) to be made available at TAF2012.

http://www.satelight...post_002234.php


I picked this up today and its absolutely gorgeous. Worth every bit of the 6000yen. Apparently its 'limited' to 50,000 copies, but thats a large enough amount that I daresay they will be available for a while yet. The main problem is that this, like the creators file official doujin before it, will mostly be available only at the Satellite booth at events. Online it will probably only turn up via auctions. Speaking of which, I saw at least one Macross fan complaining on twitter that Satellite announced the books availability way too late for him to get the weekend off and that he had already seen people selling it on online auctions. I think he is overreacting a bit, but given the popularity of Frontier I suppose it might sell out faster than anticipated.

Is this book mainly cell art and character art, like nearly all the Satellite books?

I fully expect and anouncement by Kawamori that he's releasing yet another Macross art book. His valkyrie designs have been conspicuously absent from most of the MF artbooks. The CG art is there, but virtually no line art from Kawamori...

It's 100% cell art.
As for the ball sketches, funny coincidence- I was thinking just the other day that Frontier ha yet to get its equivalent of a Perfect Memory. Then again, in this era of publications like Macross Chronicles, do we even need one anymore?

Haruhiko Mikimoto's first new artwork book in 9 years has been announced and comes out in just a few days time:
http://www.amazon.co...m=AN1VRQENFRJN5

No Macross art but, if his exhibit back in Feb was anything to go by, there should be some gorgeous pieces included. Also, fingers crossed that now that this is done the potential Macross illustration collection tht he mentioned was being discussed will become a reality sooner rather than later.

There will also be a signing event for the book on May 20th.

Hardly news, but Mari is talking about Minmay on FB this evening:
"Every time I speak my mind about Macross or Minmay, people take it negatively. Like I don't like it / like her or I haven't accepted it as a part of my life. Maybe you guys have NEVER been typecast as one thing for years and years in life?

We all need to move on in life. I do daily. More than anyone! But at the same time, my life is like the film The Groundhog's Day for the last 30 years. I moved to the States I thought it would ease my frustration but guess what, it didn't. Surprise, surprise. lol If you hear the same thing again and again, over and over for 30 years every day, even YOU can get tired of it.

Is there anyone who is willing to put yourself into my shoes? I guess not . . . instead, people just start criticizing me like I'm bad mouthing your favorite anime. I simply get tired of hearing about it from time to time. I can hold for a while. But today . . . after I talked about how inspired I am musically and shared my insight with you, I couldn't bare hearing about it again. Even if I was talking about let's say . . . my poop or boobs, you guys start talking about Macross right away. How crazy is that. I'm completely being honest here.

I didn't build my career based on Macross. I'm ALL ABOUT MUSIC. Take it or leave it. If you hate me because of my honesty, what can I say. I guess we are not on the same wave length.

I gotta get back to my life. My sons are graduating from college tomorrow. I'm a mom also. I raised them as a divorced single mother since 1996 and I'm darn proud of it. And!!! I'm in the middle of making my 22nd original full album. Thanks guys."

Is funny, you know? I always thought she felt that way about being typecast... is not a nice thing to have people believe you are somebody totally different from your true self. She is NOT Minmay!!!

I wonder if Kawamori feels the same sometimes?

Some of the designs are really sweet. I'm drooling at the modeling abilities of the entrant who converted a VF-19A to a VF-19F.

Macross the Forefront:
Pg 1: Macross: The Design @ Parco, 1:1 scale VF-25 exhibit, SDFM/DYRL BD releases, etc..

Pg 2: Yamato VF-4. See attached scan and all the battroid mode goodness.

Pg 3: DX Chougoukin VF-171EX. Awesome. + some blurb about the VF-25G renewal version planned for fall. More news on that next issue.
