    Anime Limited announces upcoming release of Macross Plus on Blu-ray in North America, UK and Europe

    Anime Limited is excited to present the home video release of the classic Macross title on Blu-ray!

    GLASGOW, JULY 01, 2022 – Anime Limited is proud to announce its upcoming release of Macross Plus to Blu-ray for the first time outside of Japan, an anime praised as a “visual tour de force” by Forbes.

    In a landmark moment for fans of the decades-spanning legendary Macross franchise, the beloved classic 1995 film – together with its original four-part OVA presentation – will be made available for fans for the first time in English on Blu-ray later this year. Created by BIGWEST and Studio Nue, with Shoji Kawamori (Aquarion, Escaflowne) serving as a chief director , the film marks the directorial debut of Shinichiro Watanabe (Cowboy Bebop, Samurai Champloo) as a director and the first collaboration with inimitable composer Yoko Kanno (Cowboy Bebop, Escaflowne).

    “Macross is a deeply important franchise to both the world of cinema and to the anime fandom,” said Andrew Partridge, CEO and Co-Founder of Anime Limited. “We’re humbled and thrilled to bring out the first HD release of the franchise to fans in so many countries with Macross Plus.”

    The film will be released on Blu-ray in the following territories:

    ● United States
    ● Canada
    ● United Kingdom
    ● France
    ● Italy
    ● Germany
    ● Spain
    ● Portugal
    ● The Netherlands
    ● Scandinavia: including Finland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, and Iceland

    Having had initially only seen the announcement slide from the Big West panel, I'm glad Anime Limited got right out there and confirmed they'll be offering both the OVA & movie.

      Nice to see that announcement Anime Limited made a year or so ago about them expanding to North America is actually happening. I don’t really know what else they can release that Crunchyroll, Discotek, GKIDS, Sentai, and Viz aren’t already putting out themselves.

        They previously released B: The Beginning & Bartender in the states so this makes it their third release.

          Shout! Factory distributed those two titles. FWIW, Anime Limited also collaborated with GKIDS on the Promare BD CE (distributed by Shout! Factory).

            Finally! Man I remember watching this decades ago and lost hope we'd ever get the blu-ray.

              Cool to see all this Macross news. Plus is the only one I've actually seen, so I'll be upgrading for that. Hope it still has the version with the Bryan Cranston dub.
