Fans of Macross anime should stock up on popcorn because two Macross films will be released in theaters across the United States.
Macross Frontier: The False Songstress and Macross Frontier: The Wings of Goodbye, two Macross anime films, will be released in theaters in the United States this June!
The False Songstress will be released on June 16 and The Wings of Goodbye will be released on June 30, both with English subtitles. Fathom Events is currently selling tickets.
The films are described as follows on the official Macross website:
Macross Frontier: The False Songstress takes place in 2059, 50 years after the human race was nearly destroyed, and humanity has embarked on an interstellar emigration project. The Macross Frontier fleet is on its way to the center of the galaxy when it encounters the Vajra, a hostile alien species. A concert by touring popstar Sheryl Nome becomes the focal point of an attack, engulfing both flight school trainee Alto Saotome and aspiring singer Ranka Lee.
Macross Frontier: The Wings of Goodbye begins after the events of The False Songstress, with Sheryl Nome remaining aboard the Macross Frontier as her health rapidly deteriorates. Meanwhile, Ranka Lee has become a singing sensation in her own right, and she is preparing for her debut concert at the same time as a joint military operation to find the Vajra Queen begins.
Alto Saotome is hospitalized after losing his VF-25 variable fighter in the skirmish, and the two songstresses, Sheryl and Ranka, rush to his side. The architects of the Vajra attacks are revealed just as their love triangle is about to reach a climax, and Sheryl finds herself behind bars, accused of treason.
Macross Frontier debuted in April 2008 as the third TV anime series in the iconic Macross franchise, running from April to September 2008. The plot follows Alto Saotome, a trainee pilot, aspiring pop singer Ranka Lee, and famed idol Sheryl Nome on their journey to the center of the galaxy.
The False Songstress and The Wings of Goodbye debuted on November 21, 2009 and February 26, 2011, respectively.
