Diva auditions launch in December
The three pillars of the Macross franchise are transforming war jets, a love triangle and singing idols. Looking to fill that final element for the next Macross anime, being provisionally called Macross Δ, a diva audition is launching in December. Plans to open the process starting December 1st were announced following yesterday's Fire Bomber 2014 Live concert celebrating Macross 7's 20th anniversary.
A similar "Victor Vocal & Voice Audition" selected Megumi Nakajima to play Macross F's Ranka Lee.
The new Macross series was announced in March following the end of the latest Japanese TV rebroadcast of 2008's Macross Frontier. In July, co-creator, mecha designer and later director Shoji Kawamori said that the series was in its planning stages.
