■About “MACROSS PLUS MOVIE EDITION”
Combining the intricate designs of Shoji Kawamori, character direction from Shinichiro Watanabe (“Cowboy Bebop”), and the musical stylings of renown composer Yoko Kanno (“Cowboy Bebop,” “Ghost in The Shell: SAC”), “MACROSS PLUS MOVIE EDITION” takes place in the year 2040 A.D., three decades after the glassing of Earth in what has since become known as Space War One. On the planet Eden, U.N.SPACY is holding a competition to decide the next generation of variable fighters. Two prototype aircraft piloted by former childhood friends, loose cannon Isamu and the Zentradi mixed alien race Guld, go head-to-head in aerial and robot combat superiority over the lucrative military contract. The two must also deal with their own unresolved history with mutual love interest, Myung Fang Lone, who has returned as the manager of virtuoid pop star Sharon Apple.
