Wow! Anyone think that title means the YF-30 might get another run as an honest to goodness VF-30?

Good news for the Macross saga!

(Sigh) I was REALLY hoping for a redux of Macross combining DYRL and the SDF series or something like Macross The First. I'm still happy something's in the works though. Delta... Triangle... I see what they did there.

On the plus side, maybe we'll get a BLUE CHRONOS!

A new songstress...

Δ is cool.

It's not the coolest greek letter, but it's cool nonetheless. I think it's cool enough for Macross.

Also: Poor Mylene got evicted from the ad.

Kowamori's made it pretty clear over and over again that he considers that story done, and is probably never going to revisit it in any real way. Macross the first only happened because Mikimoto was willing and they saw how popular Gundam the Origin was. We'll probably have actual variable fighters before we see a redo of the original series. :unsure:

Delta as in wing.

Delta as in triangle.

Delta as in difference.

Delta as in change.

I like it!

Just to be clear, it's not clear if the triangle/delta symbol is supposed to be read as "delta". There is nothing on the few images released so far that hint or suggest at how we're supposed to read it.

It could very well be "Macross Triangle", or even something bizarre as "Macross Turn Triangle" (a la "Gundam Turn A".

As much as I'd like to throw my support into the "it's a Greek letter" camp (as Kawamori-san has a penchant for appending Greek letters to enemy Valkyries), I'm inclined to opt for the "it's a stylized triangle", because love triangles are one of the core themes of Macross, and the hero Valkyries get Roman letters, not Greek ones!

There go my dreams of a Fire Bomber 2060 anime. Oh well.

Hopefully they'll strike gold again at the auditions like they did with Megumi Nakajima last time.

One thing I really miss about the first Macross series is that it took place only 27 years (from 1982) in the near future. Every big series took place about 50 years in the future from the air date. Since 2067 is very close to the time of Macross Frontier. I predict the look of the series won't drift too far away.

I thought Chisuga Haruko was pretty great too, I'm sure whoever they pick this time will also be awesome

2015 is pretty ambitious. I'd say full series you're looking at 2016.

It was only six months ago that Kawamori said he was still working on a story.

So it still needs story boarding, scripts, voice actors, singers, and animation

Per episode usually runs 4-5 months.

Great news! I hope not having to wait 4 years to see some Hasegawa model kits, like in Frontier.

So auditions are this December but it will premier next year or later?

Pretty much, yeah.

I'm surprised they're doing the auditions already, though... it seems WAY too early for casting.

I'm gonna go with macross scalene until proven otherwise.

I am over the moon with the announcement! I'm looking forward to yet another awesome accompanying soundtrack.

So this one will finally answer the question of what happened to Scott Bernard and Admiral Hunter's Expeditionary Force right? JUST KIDDING!!! ...put the pitchforks down.

Wasn't Hikaru's call-sign in DYRL Delta-1? Coincidence? Probably...

Maybe they want the winner to get a bit of experience before the show premieres?

That was the bridge's call-sign. :)
