    Same here!

    I cannot deny though that Robotech was a part of my childhood, hence me wanted the Blurays, but I'll take any English subbed Macross!

    As a reminder to all, every official Delta Blu-Ray has English subtitles despite the international release conundrum only having been overcome this year.

    A group of fans-graduated-to-pros apparently convinced Big West with a cost-benefit analysis that English subtitles on Japanese releases would work for the Southeast Asian market.

    Very mirror universe looking. Maybe we’ll get an evil Hayate with a goatee?

    liking these little previews. Probably too much to hope the frontier news turns out to be a new movie or miniseries.

    You haven't been keeping track? This is the Macross Frontier short film Labyrinth of Time, announced at the beginning of the year to be released alongside the second Macross Delta theatrical film.

    That is cool that there is going to be a small short film. Hopefully they'll be awesome enough to share it on youtube outside of Japan.

    Edit: Going to guess it will probably be an extra on the bluray for the Delta movie.

    I haven’t. Hope it wraps up what happened to Alto and Sheryl after the 2nd movie

    It just made me think that Big West probably realized that the Delta series was such crap that they had to include Max to give people a reason to watch this Delta movie.

    Delta is a big hit overseas however it sucked to a fair chunk of the folks in NA.

    You can blame it on Kawamori for a sucky series overall, however not into bubble gum j-pop for me.

    Very funny but Delta actually has fans that enjoyed it and it was a popular entry in the franchise so it makes perfect sense they would follow up with another movie. Don't be so negative.

    I still hold Delta as the worst, but Frontier as the best, of the series---yet both have a heavy "modern idol focus"---so that alone clearly isn't "the issue". At least for me, AFAIK.

    Delta would’ve been better to me had their been more focus on Delta Team fighting the Knights, like a more personal rivalry(there were enough to go 1 on 1 instead of primarily Messer(then Hayate) VS Keith). Instead the focus was split between primarily Delta Team and Waikure. Also for a team lead, you don’t see Arad do much.

    With that said I did like the movie more than the series and the 2nd movie is enticing.
