No, Macross Flashback 2012 has not yet been licensed outside of Japan, and is never likely to be licensed though several companies are interested in doing so. You may want to refere to this thread for more information:

It's not licensed. It's never been on this site purely because it hasn't been fansubbed - there is no dialogue.

It's essentially a music video, although about five minutes of the animation was newly created for it, showing events that take place after the original series.

There is some dialogue, but only like a line or three scattered throughout.

Also, the new animation makes Flashback 2012 well worth seeing. It closes off the story of Hikaru, Misa, and Minmay.

I heard there's some dialogue regarding Minmay's disappearance. Is that true?

Yes, Minmei left with Hikaru and Misa on the Megaroad I, the vessel later disappeared into the unknown.

Obviously she was not there for the colonization, but to further continue the love triangle and fulfilling 50% of Hippiemori's dream.

The version out now is better than the one that's been out for awhile... I'm glad to have watched it again.

Explanation of the scene with Hikaru and Misa extending their hands to Minmei...

Minmei was Hikaru's mistress, Misa approved.

Well, I don't see how the triangle continued after conclusion of Macross. It's obvious Minmay never meant to pose another challenge for Misa after she was rejected by Hikaru. It's not like the reasoning or the conclusion is different in the series and DYRL.

In my opinion her reason for boarding Megaroad is pretty straight forward. To go on with her life. I can't see her meddling with the wed couple that already has a child.

Yeah, I can see it clearly, Misa getting rid of Minmay by sending her flying into the void of space in a plastic bag because she 'got too close'

And there we have it, why Megaroad went missing. Fear of fan/world retaliation

The intent of flashback was to show the final growth of the characters, and to bid them farewell. After the time line of flashback there were a few cd dramas staring Misa, Hikaru, and Minmay on the MegaRoad one Mission. The "triangle was never reformed, nor was it even a focus. Flashback itself displays that very well in the way that it is showing how each character has finally grown out of their worst trait. For Minmay it was not being in touch with reality or the fact that thing wouldn't always go her selfish ways. For Misa it was opening up to others, learning to relax and enjoy life instead of doing everything by the book. Last for Hikaru it was about becoming more serious, less oblivious/indecisive and becoming able to protect and support someone instead of acting like a "kid" all the time.

The creators felt that their story was complete so they thought up the nifty "Mega Road 01" and a mission that would send them away. They didn't "disappear" or go "missing", it's just that none of the newer fleets had the mission of investigating the disappearance of Protoculture by traveling to where they originally came from, the "Center of the Universe."

Oddly Enough, Macross Frontier WAS suppose to have a cross over with Mega Road 01 when the concept for Frontier was first formed back in like 1995 or something lol. But since the VA for Hikaru decided to commit suicide for some reason, the creators permanently retired they whole possibility of a cross over with the Mega Road 01.

Kinda sucks that all that happened since it changed the possibility of a war with the "Supervision Army" into Twisted plots and space bugs >.>. But anyways, I hope that clears it up for some of you who were confused (not baiting/trolling) on this subject.

We(FLF and L-E), are now working on subbing the newly released remaster of Macross: DYRL? for those who are big time Macross fans like we are. If you just want to watch it or whatever, then watch NewLifeAnime's version from 4 or so years ago. The video quality is plenty decent and the translation is superb. We are aiming to have our translation at the same level of accuracy as NLA's did.

Sorry for the rant, just figured I'd get that out there for ppl who care ^^.

Peace~
