At a early version screening of the anime’s incomplete first episode for the members of the official Macross fanclub, the members were given cards with writings in two alien languages. These cards contain clues on the identities of the seiyuu for Walküre, as well as the rest of the cast. According to the staff, since they already know the seiyuu for one member (Minori Suzuki as Freyja Wion), they can use her name to decipher the identities of the rest of the cast. This announcement of the cast by the anime’s official website confirms the fans’ guesses.
Macross has always been known for its great musical soundtrack, and the program revealed that Macross Delta is in good hands with Rinne no Lagrange composer, Saeko Suzuki, Kaleido Star composer, Mina Kubota, and Hoozuki no Reitetsu composer, TOMOSIRO, who will all be composing songs for the anime.
Walküre, which is the franchise’s first all-female idol group, will be the series’ spiritual successor to the franchise’s legendary fictional musical acts, like Lynn Minmay (Macross), Fire Bomber (Macross 7), and Sheryl Nome and Ranka Lee (Macross Frontier).
Macross Delta is set 18 years after the events of Macross Frontier and follows the five-member tactical musical unit “Walküre,” which will comprise of the anime’s five main girls, including Freyja Wion. The anime will also feature the “Aerial Chivalry Order,” a mysterious Valkyrie unit which begins its operations at the same time as “Walküre.”
