Music has always been one of the pillars of Macross — along with love triangles and space wars. But only now, 30 years after the airing of the original Macross, is it getting its first stage musical: Macross: the Musiculture. While such performances are somewhat common (like Persona 4‘s own stage adaptation), this musical is actually an entirely new story in the continuity of the Macross universe.
The situation begins to come to a head when two teens, Ash and Sakura, meet Vigo, one of the young leaders of the political dissidents.
To get a brief look at what the musical is like, check out the video above.
Macross: the Musiculture opened in Tokyo this past Wednesday and will run through October 10.
