Macross Delta Visual 001 - 20150924Previously, the show’s cast list was derived from the show’s “0.89” preview episode which aired in December. The list was presented in two alien languages, which fans decoded using Minori Suzuki’s name as a cipher. The show’s staff hadn’t confirmed the full list until today.

Macross Delta is the latest entry into the long-running Macross franchise. The series is being directed by Kenji Yasuda (Noein – to your other self) at Satelight, with series creator Shoji Kawamori serving as chief director. The team of Majiro (Barakamon) and Yuu Shindou (My Teen Romantic Comedy SNAFU) will provide character designs for the project, while also serving as chief animation directors. Toshizo Nemoto (Log Horizon) will supervise and provide scripts.

In addition to the anime, four manga titles, as well as a novelization of the main story are in the works. The manga titles will roll-out in the following publications:
