Macross Chronicle, new edition, issue #1 released!

The Macross Chronicle is back!

Remember way back in 2008, when the definitive encyclopedia of all things Macross-related was announced?  Well, it came and went, leaving us with a roster of 50 bi-weekly issues of cool art and full-to-the-brim stats for all you hardcore nerdy types.  And now “THE TIME TO SCRAMBLE VALKYRIE AGAIN” because the Chronicle has returned, meatier than ever, courtesy of DeAgostini.  After a trial run in the Hiroshima area last year, 80 WEEKLY issues have been promised, and the first one comes with a free binder rocking some super dimensional Tenjin artwork of the majestic SDF-1.

A few photos and comparisons with the old release follow.

Macross SpeakerPODcast Ep.7, Part 1 – Bag of Orgus!

Ep7_a

With the final (that we know of) 30th Anniversary events drawing to a close, we decided to try something special this episode by renting/recording in the special Firebomber-themed karaoke room at Ikebukuro Joysound.

As such, the sound is little different than usual, but hey, what better ambience for a Macross podcast than rooms full of people singing Firebomber and Frontier songs in the background while we discuss our impressions of The MUSICALTURE, the FB7 movie, Firebomber live in concert, the VF-4G, Macross 30, and the fateful day when Renato, Gubaba, Yoshiki Fukuyama and a bag full of Orgus VHS tapes collided….literally!

Also, this episode features another Macross Voxpop, as well as the debut of MW poster Antibiotictab!

WARNING – Part 1 includes spoilers for Evangelion Q (3.0). And yes, we forgot to tell the ‘Lego story.’

EP.7 – PART 1  Episode 7 part 1

[Edit by Renato:] Antibiotictab was kind enough to film, edit and upload a trailer for this episode onto Youtube!  Check it out below:
