Macross Δ (マクロスΔ Makurosu Deruta, lit. "Macross Delta") is a science fiction anime television series that aired on Tokyo MX in Japan from April 3, 2016 to September 25, 2016.

The fourth television series set in the Macross universe, it is directed by Kenji Yasuda (Arata: The Legend, Noein) and written by Toshizo Nemoto (Log Horizon, Tokyo Majin) with Shōji Kawamori being the chief director and mechanical designer, while Chisato Mita handling the original character design. Kawamori is also credited as the original creator along Studio Nue.

Macross Delta is set in the year 2067, eight years after the events of Macross Frontier (and 59 years after Macross Zero) in a remote part of the Milky Way Galaxy called the Brísingr Globular Cluster (ブリージンガル球状星団 Burījingaru Kyūjō Seidan), which is plagued by the Vár Syndrome (ヴァールシンドローム Vāru Shindorōmu), a mysterious phenomenon which turns people berserk without any apparent cause. A team of talented musical popstar idols, the Walküre, uses the power of their songs to calm down the infected by the Vár Syndrome, assisted by the Delta Flight, a team of experienced Valkyrie mecha pilots, while facing the interference from the Aerial Knights of the Windermere Kingdom, which found a way to exploit the infection on their favor as part of their plan to resume war against the N.U.N. (New United Nations) Government (新統合政府 Shin Tōgō-seifu) for control of the Cluster.

The Macross series is notable for combining real life military weaponry and fictional mecha (giant robot) weaponry.
