So any new reports?

I will laugh so hard if they decide to pair up the protagonist with 48 utahimes.

unless of course there is no enemy to use it on. what say you guys to another personal story line like M Plus?
Depends on how it's done. However I think personal stories work best on OVAs in a mech series like Macross, which Plus was one. Personally, while I'm open to exceptions done right I prefer if there was a war going on. I assumed from the title and opening form that it's a confirmed TV series.

I've yet to watch the Frontier movies but......

I really wish they'd actually solve the triangle this time. That's two TV series in a row now.

The "magic music" is a touchy subject with fans, especially at this stage in such a long-lived franchise as Macross. Originally, there was little "magic" for the in-universe music of Macross; SDF Macross mostly played upon culture shock as the primary effect. As the sequels went on, the "myth" of Macross took over more and more, causing a pseudo-spiritualism to be attributed to the music (often the direct result of Kawamori's own personal spiritualism coming to the forefront of his creative work). This wasn't all that terrible on it's own and even had some virtue as a storytelling device. The magic music of course hit an absurd peak with Macross 7, yet the trend has persisted beyond that mid-90's sequel. It appears Macross and magic music are now inseparable and some (even Kawamori himself) have reinterpreted even the original Macross with this sprirtual bent. So I don't think it'll be going away any time soon.

For me I think the more important idea is not IF magic music is used, but rather HOW it is used in a new not seen before so that it feels fresh.

As for another side story-like series such as Macross Plus, that certainly would be a welcome change for the franchsie. However, I don't want another Plus-style story. What made SDF Macross, DYRL?, Flashback 2012 and Macross Plus all such great Macross stories is how each sequel dived far off established Macross into territory completely different from the last production in both technology and technique. Macross Plus wasn't even meant to be Macross at all but an original IP. Financing the project became dependent upon it being adapted for the Macross franchise, where it became an unexpectedly perfect marriage of story to setting. Plus didn't even have a war story at all; it took place in peace time. That kind of "out-of-left-field" concept is what I'd kill to see in the next Macross production because that's what made the first decade of Macross so great to begin with. A quasi-political thriller set in the Macross universe (think Captain America: The WInter Soldier) or a deep space alien horror story in the Macross universe (think Alien/Predator meets Macross). The creative possibilities for either of these two concepts could manifest using elements of the existing Macross universe to drive them (factions changing sides due to cultural liberation, the Zentradi/Protoculture, new alien menace, etc). Each would be amazing.

Pity nothing like that is ever going to happen. The next Macross is going to be another grand epic war story, for good or ill.

Was kinda hoping they might go back to rock but they struck gold before so hopefully they'll do so again. :)

But yeah, PROGRESS!

Set in 2067? Seems like such a short 8 years from Frontier circa 2059. You are strange, Macross :)

The auditions run until the end of january so I expect there will be much debating when it's all over and we find who the lucky girl is.

I wonder if the music will be a significant departure from the last Macross Frontier series. I must admit I am curious where they can go.

They use plenty of non-vocal music for their series. It might not be a diva singing, but it's definitely used for action scenes.

There's been orchestral music in every Macross series. SDF Macross/DYRL, Macross Plus and Macross Frontier arguably featured the best of the orchestral music featured in Macross to date. To get an idea of what there is, I can recommend:

Macross Do You Remember Love?
500,000 Years of Battle (by Haneda Kentarou)

Macross Plus
Fly Up To The Air/Tension (by Yoko Kanno/Israeli Philharmonic Orchestra)

Macross Frontier
Frontier 2059 (by Yoko Kanno)

Can't wait for the next season. Overall I liked Frontier, even though I hated how the movies didn't kill the sniper who can't snipe.

Though I personally would have loved an anime adaptation of Macross 30.

Ah, looking forward to it. For sure. Really curious about the mecha aesthetics for this one.

Maybe referring to the friendly fire perhaps? Though I wouldn't call it a character trait.
