The OVA project retells the story of the franchise's top matches. The first OVA, which features a match between Tezuka and Atobe from the Kantō Tournament, began its limited two-week screening in Japan last August, and shipped in Japan on home video last October.
The second OVA features two doubles matches: the first match is Shuichiro Oishi and Eiji Kikumaru's game against Hiroshi Yagyū and Masaharu Niō, while the second match is Ryō Shishido and Chōtarō Otori's game against Sahadaru Inui and Kaoru Kaidō. The OVA screened in Japanese theaters for two weeks starting on April 5, then shipped on home video on June 25.
Keiichiro Kawaguchi (Mayo Chiki!, Hayate the Combat Butler) is directing the project at M.S.C. Mitsutaka Hirota (The Prince of Tennis II, The Prince of Tennis II OVA vs. Genius 10) is returning to handle series composition and write the scripts. Akiharu Ishii is again designing the characters, and Cher Watanabe is returning to compose the music.
Old Man Dream: ...later titles in the Macross franchise can finally come stateside with all involved parties finally coming to a truce over how to handle things with the Macross trademark and all later anime in the franchise associated with it.

Taka: I see. A global release will benefit it. Gundam did pretty good. The only few franchises that are only popular in Japan but not popular in the west - Yokai Watch comes to mind.

Master Menos: F for Respects. DMX did all his work while suffering from a drug addiction, and I almost never knew until a point. I hope his next life treats him far better.
