A new diva has been announced to appear in “Macross Δ (Delta)” which will premiere in April. The singer is JUNNA who was selected through audition from about 8,000 persons. She is 15 years old, and the youngest ever diva in the series.
JUNNA will be in charge of the singing by Mikumo Guynemer who is the lead vocalist of the tactical music unit “Walcuere”. It was revealed at “Macross Delta Housou Chokuzen Runpika Joueikai (Macross Delta Pre-Broadcast Runpika Screening)” held at TOHO CINEMAS Shinjuku in Tokyo on March 21st.
In “Macross Δ (Delta)”, they decided an artist through audition who will be in charge of the singing of the heroine among the applicants more than those for the previous series. JUNNA, who is a 15-year-old girl, won the position of the lead vocalist.
JUNNA is the youngest diva that we have ever had in the series. This casting is more surprising since she was just a 14-year-old, junior-high school girl during the recording. She shows her powerful voice in the song “Ikenai Borderline” which has been distributed in advance since December in 2015.
At the screening, other information was announced continuously. First, a single will be released on May 11th which contains “Ichido Dake No Koi Nara”, or the opening theme song of “Macross Δ” and “Run Ga Pikatto Hikattara”, or its ending theme song. In addition, “Ikenai Borderline” distributed in advance will also be recorded on its B-side.
The distribution of the song “Koi! Halation THE WAR (Love! Halation The War)” performed by Walkuere also started on March 21st.
On top of this, a radio show featuring “Macross Δ (Delta)” titled “Gori Gori Radio Shicharukanne!!” will start on April 2nd. Three fresh voice actors play the roles of the following personalities: Yuuma Uchida voicing Hayate Immelman, Minori Suzuki as Freyja Wion, and Nozomi Nishida as Makina Nakajima.
The fresh members are likely to be cheered energetically by fans. The show will begin at 27:30 every Saturday (or 3:30 every Sunday) on Nippon Cultural Broadcasting.
Furthermore, “Macross Utahime Kami Kyoku Channel (Macross Diva Respected Songs Channel)” compiled with the latest songs and great songs by previous divas is set to be distributed on “d Hits” and “UtaPass” from March 23rd. Two decisions were also announced: The collaboration with “Quiz RPG Mahotsukai To Kuroneko No Wizu (Quiz RPG Witch And Black Cat Wiz)” and the development of game application(s) of “Macross” series by DeNA. We have to pay close attention to further news. “Macross Δ” will premiere on TOKYO MX, BS11, and others in April.
