A new Macross TV series

I have recently learned (via Anime News Network) that a new Macross TV series is in production. Titled Macross Delta (no doubt because of the unique delta wing design of the new Valkyries), it is the story of the "Tactical Sound Unit" Walküre, a group of five singers who battles the Var Syndrome which is consuming the galaxy, alongside the mysterious Aerial Knights Valkyrie fighter team of the Kingdom of Wind. 18-year-old Minori Suzuki will play Freyja Wion, one of the singers.

All the details on the show (staff, characters, cast, designs, and teaser video) were revealed at the end of October in a streaming special event. Shoji Kawamori (Studio Nue) is the overall director as well as the Valkyrie designer. The director is Kenji Yasuda (Satelight), with scripts by Toshiba Nemoto, mechanical designs by Stanislas Brunet, character designs and animation direction are by Majiro and Yuu Shindou (adapting the original designs by Chisato Mita).

A special preview will air on New Year's Eve. In the meantime you can check the official website and this Youtube teaser video:
