The Tezuka Osamu Manga Museum in Takarazuka, Hyogo Prefecture, is currently holding an exhibit to commemorate the 35th anniversary of Macross and 10th anniversary of Macross Frontier. Titled “Macross: The Art 1982-2018“, the exhibit includes sections dedicated to each animated entry in the franchise (yes, including Macross 2), Macross the First, and a selection of Macross Frontier artwork and sketches. It also contains a large VF-31 and YF-29 in Battroid form, as well as collaboration art (Macross characters rendered in a “Tezuka” style, and a Frontier piece by Risa Ebata inspired by the world-famous Takarazuka Revue.
Several cafes and restaurants around the museum are holding collaborations with the exhibit, offering Macross-themed foods (Pineapple cake, anyone?) and collectible coasters.
While photos were not permitted throughout the majority of the exhibit, the following is a gallery taken around the museum itself as well as a few specific areas that did permit photography.
