SPEAKERPODCAST EP.90 – Superdimensional Orchestra

The SpeakerPODcast Crew has just come out of a performance that was 35 years in the making. A concert so powerful that it had people in tears. That’s right, it’s been less than 24hrs since the incredible Superdimensional Orchestra, and we’re here to talk about it while the melodies are still ringing in our ears.

But did you know that the concert saw the premiere of some actual new Macross animated footage as well?

And why is there so much whiskey in this podcast?

Join us, along with special guests Tom Bateman (hey, we haven’t had him on the cast since 2013!) and newcomer Greg as we recount this weekend’s experiences.

Timestamps and many, many photos follow the jump.

Softmap Macross Museum

Following on from the Macross Delta collaboration that was held earlier this year Softmap is currently holding a “Macross Museum” display at its No.1 Branch in Akihabara. Much of the Macross Delta merchandise that previously populated the display has been swapped out for some more vintage goods, mostly in pristine condition.

The following pictures were taken on September 10, 2017. I’ve also included some prototype Garland pics at the end – Arcadia currently has these on limited display on the 5th floor of the Radio Kaikan.

SpeakerPODcast Ep.89 – Anisong World Matsuri 2017


June 30, 2017 was a momentous day for Macross fans across the Pacific. It was the day that JUNNA and Minori Suzuki from Walkure made their overseas debut, at Anisong Matsuri 2017!

Richard and the SpeakerPODcast America gang were there and offer up all the details, this episode of the SpeakerPODcast. Warning – there is a lot of talk about Hamburgers ^^;

SpeakerPODcast Ep.88 – Yamato 2202 Ch.2: Launch

Chapter 2 of Yamato 2202 recently completed its theatrical run here in Japan, which means it’s time for another Yamato
2202 cast!

Tim Eldred from ourstarblazers.com sneaks aboard the cast just before we flood the dock for take off to discuss the four episodes that comprise Chapter 2.

SPOILER WARNING – this entire podcast is pretty much a giant spoilercast for Chapter 2 of Yamato 2202.

SpeakerPODcast Ep.87 – Tomonori Kogawa & Wonder Festival 2017 Summer.

We went out looking for a paper mache Valkyrie, but somehow ended up in a small room with Ideon/Dunbine/Southern Cross Character Designer Tomonori Kogawa for FOUR hours… how on earth did THAT happen? (hint: Adrian).

We also go over all the latest toy news from Wonder Festival and OH THERE’S A NEW MACROSS DELTA MOVIE ON THE WAY! Time to GIRI GIRI AIgain!
