Shoji Kawamori ：
“For creators like me, our work only comes to life when it is seen by people.
It seems that the time has just started to move, after years and years of stillness.
I would like to express my sincere gratitude to everyone involved who helped bring Macross to the world.
Last but not least, I am deeply grateful for all the support and understanding from fans around the world.
Together, let’s aim for more freedom and a whole new culture.
TO THE WORLD, TO THE GALAXY, listen to our song MACROSS !!!!!! ”
Haruhiko Mikimoto ：
“Back in the days when I lived in uncertainty, not knowing whether or not I should become a professional creator, Studio Nue invited me to participate in their project and although I am sure I caused them some consternation. , I was a member of the original creative team for the project which eventually came to fruition as Super Dimension Fortress Macross.
I was reluctant to pursue a career in this field, but the Macross franchise was instrumental in getting me into this area of work that I do today, and for that, it’s a very special title for me.
On a personal level, I was frustrated not only by the fact that the global reach of the anime titles was hampered, but also by all of the production design sheets, illustrations, and comics created through the participation of many people.
I am very happy to hear that the situation has been sufficiently resolved for the public around the world to have full access to all this material.
I humbly ask fans to not only celebrate the anime titles that continue to evolve and change with each new series, but also to support other materials created to help promote the main titles, such as artwork and artwork. comics, all of which are made through hard work on my part and that of other creators !! “
Finally, we also get a real treat to celebrate the fall of Harmony Gold’s despicable influence on the series. Below you can watch The Super Dimension Fortress Macross: Flash Back 2012 in its entirety.
