The musical is set three years after Macross Frontier on Macross 29 (Two-Nine), a pacifist fleet on the verge of economic collapse. As part of an economic recovery program, the government is holding a Miss Macross talent competition. At the same time, a new political movement advocating the return to a strong military has been capitalizing on the economic crisis and gaining popularity—especially among young Zentradi.
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.
