Macross is arguably one of the most iconic anime franchises of the 80s, and while some classify it as a mecha anime, that’s not entirely accurate as there are also unique variable fighters in the anime alongside mechas.
Interestingly, some may know Macross as Robotech which is an adaptation of Macross when it was aired in the US. Think of it like what the Power Rangers series is to Super Sentai.
Thanks to the series’ popularity, Macross has gotten new projects over the years, the latest being Macross Delta which got a TV anime series in 2016.
For now, there’s no word yet on what this new anime will be and what it’ll be about. And given that the only thing revealed is the fact that the anime has been decided means we’ll likely have to wait a while before we see more of it.
