Macross Delta Gets a Theatrical Anime Project


The ladies of Walkure are taking their act to the big screen!

Earlier today, the members of Macross Delta idol group Walkure performed at the “Rock in Japan Festival 2017.” At the show, the group revealed that the Macross Delta TV series will receive an anime film project. As of press time, no concrete details were revealed.

The work is intended to commemorate Macross‘s 35th anniversary. The show’s staff will reveal further details at an unspecified later date.

Macross Delta is the latest entry into the long-running Macross franchise. The series, which debuted in April 2016, was 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) provided character designs for the project, while also serving as chief animation directors. Toshizo Nemoto (Log Horizon) will supervised and provided scripts.

The series inspired several manga spinoffs, as well as a novel. Walkure, the in-series idol group, has held numerous concerts since the show’s airing, and earned the Recording Industry Association of Japan’s first “Animation Album of the Year” award at this year’s Japan Gold Disc Awards.
