  1. Macross fan translator Gubaba has done several Macross novels in the past and I believe the Macross 2 novels are near the top of his to-do list at the moment, so keep an eye on his blog for updates. https://gubabablog.wordpress.com/category/all-of-my-translations-in-one-post/ Keep in mind that even the final two novels (the only really "new" material) don't add much in the way of new information as they're more of a triad/investigation side-story. They have been the source of some neat novel-related cosplay over the years though. :-)
  2. Thanks! We're hoping to have less of a break between episodes in the future ^^; Engrish is always a plus :-D Am happy to hear that its sounding better. We'll continue tweaking as we go :-)
  3. Need some background noise while recovering from 2020? Why not join us in catching up on all the latest Macross news? https://www.decultureshock.com/speakerpodcast-ep-138-catching-up-genesis-breaker/
  4. Well Mikimoto did come out and say publicly that he was prepared and ready to continue but that the decision to not go ahead came from elsewhere. Either way, it’s a shame.
  5. Just to clear up some possible misunderstandings: 1)The new tv series announced at the end of Walkure’s 2nd live as having been greenlit was never announced as being S2 of Delta. Regardless though, it’s a safe bet that whatever it was going to be, it’s on the back burner indefinitely while Zettai Live is being made. A LOT changed at that 2nd Live that also affected what was to come afterwards. 2) While the “official” position on Lady M was that her identity would never be revealed, that all changed on March 2019 when one of the producers of Delta announced that this had changed
  6. No, they really don’t. If anything, they undersell it in quite a few cases And I say that as someone who has seen him work in person and marveled at the sheer amount of involvement he has with pretty much everything.
  7. It’s not that much longer than Frontier when you think about it. Frontier began airing in 2008. Wings of Farewell was released in 2011. Delta began airing in 2016. Zettai Live releases in 2021 (after presumably having been delayed by Covid like pretty much everything else. Subtract a year for that and Delta only has a media cycle that’s only a year longer than Frontier, which makes sense given that there were more concerts and related events in between entries for Delta)
  8. ANN has also picked up on it. https://www.animenewsnetwork.com/news/2020-10-03/macross-delta-zettai-live-anime-film-to-open-in-2021-with-more-concerts-before/.164849

  14. The winners of the 4th Macross Modelers Contest were announced during a live stream this evening and have since been posted on the official Macross website. The Grand Finalist is listed at the top, followed by the winner of the Shōji Kawamori Prize, the Hidetaka Tenjin Prize and so on. https://sp.macross.jp/modelers/contest_result_4th_1d390e07.php
  15. But it’s fate was pretty much explained in Delta? ^^;
  16. The new official Macross YouTube channel is now open! The channel combines several previous ones while also adding new regular content. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCKeM8HXpwR0qc0RtH0GKyMg

    Macross figures

    There have been so many other figures of them over the last decade that I suspect the market reached capacity. And many are abundant and cheap second hand these days. Maybe we’ll see something new for an anniversary year at some point. One can always hope :-)

    Macross figures

    Most likely a lack of demand or market for them. OG fans are far out numbered by those of subsequent entries into the series in Japan and since manufacturers are legally not allowed to manufacture for or market to overseas markets thanks to they who shall not be named, it makes sense that they’d double down on what’s more likely to sell domestically.
