Thanks to Jefuemon for posting this. The Macross the First Volume 5 Cover has been revealed on Amazon.jp and it features a glorious cover with Captain Bruno Gloval and the lovely “Bridge Bunnies” Vanessa, Kim and Shammy. Scheduled to ship March 26, 2013.
Volume 19 of Newtype Ace has revealed, via a tiny thumbnail-sized picture, the box artwork for the upcoming Macross Plus BD Boxset.
Done, as previous boxsets, by the true Master of Valkyries Hidetaka Tenjin, the piece shows crossing YF-19 and YF-21, encircled by Sharon Apples infamous chain logo.
The jacket art for the box set has not yet been revealed. Macross Plus Complete Bluray Box will be released on June 21 for 17850yen. It will contain the English dub, but no English subs.

Anime News Network has reported that Kaoru Shimamura, the voice actress of Macross 7’s motorcycle gang leader Rex, has passed away after battling breast cancer. She was only 43.
Farewell Rex. Surely Basara is singing ‘My Soul For You’ as you ride off into the sunset.

The latest trailer for the upcoming PS3 game Macross 30 – Ginga wo Tsunagu Utagoe has gone live on Bandai Namco Game’s youtube channel. The trailer focuses on the games newly animated scenes (and therefore includes no actual gameplay footage) but features more than a few familiar faces.

As previously reported HERE, Yamato, the company that brought fans the greatest Macross toys ever is undergoing some changes and forthcoming Macross-licensed items will now be sold under the Arcadia brand.
The evolution of Yamato’s Macross products have always been somewhat synchronous with the growth of Macrossworld as a fansite, seeing as they both began at around the same time, making this transition all the more poignant.
This sign of the changing times gives us an opportunity to look backand reminisce all the elation and/or frustration that Yamato’s products have given us over their 13-year journey exceeding time and space.
Thus MW member VF5SS and I (Renato from the Macross Speaker Podcast) got together for a talk session where we powered through Yamato’s entire back-catalogue, with a smattering of insights on the company philosophy and the changing nature of the market taken from an interview I personally conducted with Yamato Toys staff in June 2012.
