All Macross Big Voting (全マクロス大投票 Zen Makurosu Dai Tōhyō To Wa?), literally translated as All Macross Poll or Ultimate Macross Poll, is an NHK special where fans can vote their favorite Macross series, variable fighter, character and song. The results were aired on May 4, 2019.

OverviewEdit

Fans of the 37-year-old Macross franchise were able to vote for their favorite series, characters, mechas, and songs. A total of 254,131 votes were cast between March 1 and April 21, 2019. It was hoste

The results were revealed in the live-broadcasting program on NHK BS Premium on May 4, 2019, with four special guest voice actors: Shô Hayami (Maximilian Jenius), Nobutoshi Canna (Basara Nekki), Megumi Nakajima (Ranka Lee), and Minori Suzuki (Freyja Wion).

Takanori Nishikawa (member of the band T.M.Revolution), Chiaki Kyan (hosted numerous Macross fan club events), Kazuhiko Shimamoto (veteran manga artist of Blue Blazes, drew a manga showing his original reaction upon seeing the opening of Super Dimension Fortress Macross), Kōhei Tanaka (veteran anime composer which includes Gunbuster, Otaku No Video and One Piece) and Ryūsuke Hikawa, academic who specializes in anime history, served as the host panel guests of the program alongside NHK's announcer Yuki Sugiura.

During the panel discussion, Kōhei Tanaka, the composer, offered insights into Yoko Kanno's career, and how it could be broken down into different eras, inspiration and styles. They had a segment on which technology did Macross predict, such as cellphones, wireless technology, etc. There was a "shout out" by anime academic Ryūsuke Hikawa on how Macross Petite Cola robot, the TV phone robot that Hikaru Ichijyo used to call Lynn Minmay and the street sweeper robot seen in The Super Dimension Fortress Macross: Do You Remember Love?. Chiaki then jokingly asked, "why was everything in Macross' future envisioned to be built on wheels?"

Polling DemographicsEdit

Since the program was aired on a pay-per-view cable arm of NHK, demographics of the fan polling may not reflect the wider fandom who had no access to the show. Nevertheless, the results of the polling reflected shifting demographics throughout the series' history, wherein the older series and films garnered a majority male audience who skewed much older (40 year age range), whereas the newer series such as Macross Frontier and Macross Δ had a more even split between male and female audience. Macross Δ had a wider demographic range of voters, with polling taking in younger (less than 20 years old) and older viewers.

Oddly enough, the VF-2SS Valkyrie II and VA-1SS Metal Siren from Super Dimensional Fortress Macross II: Lovers Again failed to enter the top fifty mecha chart.
