With Macross Delta continuing onto the summer season and being one of spring’s most successful titles, Macross series creator, Shoji Kawamori is already planning his next project, which is expected to air between 2017 – 2018, with 26 half-hour episodes.
During the Enime Expo 2016 event in Los Angeles, California, Kawamori and anime studio, Satelite, discussed their plans for that new anime, which they described as:
The new series is set in a near-future world where the boundary between human being and AI is vague. A rapid biological evolution, similar to “Cambrian Explosion,” is caused by one incident. This incident turns into the genesis of a new jostle for supremacy, and the influence of the evolution goes beyond biological framework and spreads to various kinds of materials and technologies. The era of massive evolution involving diverse existences, such as human, machines and biotechnologies, is coming. Characters fight an existential war in such a world.
They revealed that they will be releasing the anime globally, with Xiamen Skyloong Media being part of the new anime’s production. More information will be revealed when Kawamori and Satelite go on stage to discuss the anime again.
Aside from Macross, Kawamori is also responsible for creating Aquarion, AKB0048, Arjuna, The Vision of Escaflowne, Basquash!, and Nobunaga The Fool, and has contributed to many other mecha anime, like Mobile Police Patlabor and Eureka Seven. He has also contributed in the designs of several Transformers for Takara Tomy/ Hasbro.
