Originally in theaters in 2009 and 2011, some news has hit for the two Macross Frontier features coming out of Japan as Macross Frontier the Movie 30th d Shudisuta b Box is now planned for a May 15th, 2014 release and both films will be subtitled in English. The set, priced at 16,800 yen for the Blu-ray and 14,800yen for the DVD, will include Macross Frontier: Itsuwari no Utahime and Macross Frontier: Sayonara no Tsubasa on separate discs. The releases will also feature the intro and ending sequences that were shown theatrically but changed for the home video release, finally giving it a proper version for fans who wanted what they saw in the theater.
The set is also slated to have a disc of extras. According to the breakdown at ANN, the release will have:
The box’s third disc will be the “Project F Ultimate Hybrid Disc” with never-before-released material: the “Macross Frontier the Movie Special Play View,” the “Macross Frontier Video Historia” that is over 120 minutes long, “Instructor Sheryl’s 30th Anniversary Movie Document,” “Super Galaxy-Class voice cast interviews,” and the virtual “Macross Frontier Super Dimension Super Live ~PS Home kara Ai o Komete~” concert from new camera angles. The Play View feature requires a PlayStation 3 system.
This bonus disc will also have previously released material, such as the 24-episode “Macross Intelligence Agency” with bonus episodes, Macross Frontier-related commercials, the interview before the first film in which Shoji Kawamori explains how the VF-25 transforms, and Megumi Nakajima’s studio report from the first film. The box will bundle an A4-size Macross Frontier the Movie design/art collection and an A4-size Macross Frontier the Movie promotional illustration collection, each about 100 pages long.
Plot concept: Half retelling of the original Frontier series, half new story. Conspiracies arise within the Frontier government when Sheryl Nome arrives to the colonial fleet for her concert and is soon marked as a spy for Galaxy while childhood friends, Alto Saotome and Ranka Lee both try to achieve their dreams as the battle between Frontier and the Vajra draws closer. The first movie serves as part one of the Frontier retelling and concludes with the second, The Wings of Goodbye.
