Like Macross? Want to see a massive collection of character designs and other art from the latest series, Macross Delta? Then you’ve come to the right place.
Currently, the Parco Museum in Ikebukuro is hosting the “Macross Delta World Exhibit.”
It has walls full of original character designs.
And walls covered in the final character designs.
Then there’s a section comparing the anime’s keyframe line art next to the final finished shots used in the show.
There is also a section showcasing the setting of the show with some concept art of the various locals and landmarks.
And of course there is plenty of art of the transforming mecha planes that are synonymous with the franchise. (And even some prototype models using Legos and past Macross models which we weren’t allowed to take pictures of.)
Past the production art area, you can sit yourself upon the throne of Windermere and get a picture or two with the Aerial Knights.
Or you can get a picture with the girls of Walküre in front of the Macross Elysion.
You can even get a picture with Delta Squadron pilot Messer.
And what Macross exhibit would be complete without a Macross merchandise filled gift shop.
The “Macross Delta World Exhibit” will run until February 2, 2017 at the Parco Museum (on the 8th floor of the Parco department store) an Ikebukuro Station. And if you need a meal after your visit, you can head next door and check out the (eminently popular) Your Name. cafe on the same floor.
